We got in 8 games in January, so the Owls are "caught-up" as far as games played compared to what was originally scheduled. In some games the teams looked great, but lately they appear to be fatigued. It's understandable. The effects of the illness seemed to be not too bad as the first 2 games back we thoroughly spanked our opponents. The grind of 3 games several weeks, compressed travel schedule and perhaps additional stress of missing classes seems to have worn the players down.
I am not casting any shade here, just making an observation. It's been a tough hand to play. We are all tired of Covid, and hoping the cases continue to fall.
It's not over yet as we have 2 road games later this week.
Maybe what does not kill us will make us stronger. We have some time to regroup before tourney time and this team has shown us and the league what they are capable of doing.
