No less than ten times Javon McCrea has put up 28 or more points and the Bulls are just 3-7 in those games.
That includes last nights loss to seemingly moribund Ball State. Before last night the Cardinals had just a single division one win this season. They have not been near competitive in MAC games and it should have been a cake walk.
McCrea scored 28 points and looked at times to be unstoppable but at the same time Regan and Freelove go 1-12 from 3 while even Jarryn Skeete was throwing up ugly passes.
Buffalo was getting owned on the boards and just out hustled in general.
Not being a long time hoops fan I have to ask, is this normal?
How often do teams have that one stud who's best scoring games are typically tight losses?
Buffalo has been most effective when McCrea scores 15-20 points and controls the boards. In order for Javon to do that the Bulls need an outside shooting game and an overall better effort from their guards.
