Marcus Bingham Jr. and A.J. Hoggard trudged back to the bench, their heads drooping with a mixture of disbelief and embarrassment. Myles Johnson’s follow-up dunk a few minutes earlier posterized Bingham. Geo Baker zeroed in for a 3-pointer over the flat-footed Hoggard.

Confidence wavering. Energy absent. Fight fading.
