Jags lost for the fifth time in the last six games on Saturday, falling at Denver 71-48. What did in the Jags was 14 three pointers and only four turnovers by the Pioneers. This puts the Jaguars at 12-9 for the season and 4-5 in the Sun Belt.

The Jags entered the game ranked second in the Sun Belt and 32nd nationally in 3-point defense. While the Pioneers was ranked second in the league in both 3-point percentage and 3-pointers per game.

In a low scoring half, the Pioneers went into the locker room with a 29-20 lead.

For the game, the Jags show 37.5% with season lows in both field goals (15), field goal attempts (40) and assists (5).

Coach Arrow was very displeased with the Jags performance. “We didn’t show up tonight,” he said. “We don’t have the manpower to do the things we were doing early in the year, but they have a really good bunch and they’ll pick you apart. If you don’t come ready to play, they’ll pick you apart and shoot the heck out of it from the 3’s. The number one thing we put on the board (in the locker room) was ‘Guard the 3-point line.’ Fourteen out of 28 is not what I’d call guarding the 3-point line.”

He further commented, “Our continuity is just really bad right now. We have kids playing out of position because of injury. Our continuity isn’t anywhere close to what it was. We just have to get back home and start doing the things we were doing earlier in the year.”

The Jags will return home to face Florida Atlantic on Thursday night with a 7:05pm in the Mitchell Center.

Also it has been confirmed that Raymond Sims has been deemed ineligible for the rest of this season by the NCAA.
