With Lupul's and Army's injuries they can bring up Ashton with out burning a callup(I think). That is a little silver lining anyway.
The effort was there, and the game really could have gone either way. A few defensive brainfarts were the difference. Props to the veterans Army and Connolly for standing up for themselves (and the team), eventhough they're not exactly scrapers.

The whole giving the ball to Reims to let him get confidence is what landed us in this spot to start with. Unless the team has decided to mail it in for the season, we don't need that crap again.

It's to be expected from a rookie who's used to college schedule. He should never have been getting 20+ mins a night, nevermind on a regular basis. He should definately be sitting in favor of Franson atm, but Carlyle needs to get a feel for all the players still.
