A break in play was anything but for Arkansas-Pine Bluff during Wednesday's 83-64 loss to No. 19 Iowa State.

If Bozeman wanted to send a message to his team, then it may not have resonated. Arkansas-Pine Bluff trailed by 20 points, 44-24, when the timeout was called and did little to eat into the deficit for the remainder of the game.
When your team is en route to an eighth loss in nine games, sometimes drastic steps are required. Mid-game wind sprints may not be the most sensible strategy to deploy, though.
