Everything is terrible.

Well, that was terrible. After getting out to a quick 8 point lead the Cyclones gave up a billion consecutive points en route to losing by 18 at home to a team that would be picked to finish 6th in a middle school church league.

Turnovers proved to be the greatest threat to the Cyclone offense, as the Cyclones had nearly as many turnovers as made field goals by midway through the first half. Each Cyclone had their occasional bright spots, but they could never seem to match up at the same time.

Shooting continues to be a bugaboo for this team, as nobody was able to consistently hit jump shots. Donovan Jackson similarly continued to struggle this game as he seemed to often speed himself out of control trying to single handedly will the offense to points.

The Cyclones will be back in action on Thursday in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off against Appalachian State. Keep an eye out for Hans Brase and Cameron Lard, as both are scheduled to make their debuts.
