XU throws away another game, coughs up game to Wofford

AHHHHHH!!! Despite Travis Taylor's 20 pts and 11 rebs and a 12 point halftime lead, the Muskies fell apart in the 2nd half and lost to Wofford, 56-55. Almost no students there due to Winter Break and many season ticket holders for this one; that certainly didn't help the effort.

Two Brad Redford's three-pointers brought the Muskies back and tied the game in the closing seconds. But Jeff Robinson fouled Lee Skinner after he received the in-bounds pass with 8 seconds left. WHAAAAAAAAT! Skinner made 1 of 2 and then the Muskies ran down the court only to have Semaj Christon called for a charge, a call that seemed questionable to say the least.

And what the heck are we doing at the free throw line??? Wofford shoots 88% and we shoot 50%! Good lord!
 
I can't believe the Muskies gave this one away. I just can't believe it. This loss is debilitating. We have 2 horrible losses, home games to Vanderbilt and Wofford and 1 not-so-good loss to Pacific. As amazing this season started, it has quickly fallen apart.
