How to use sourcetree without keychain

I don't want to use keychain, I want to enter my password in to connect to my repos and perform git operations.  

Every time I try and do anything, source tree trys to connect to keychain,  I click deny.  I then get a prompt to enter my password *(with an annoying save to keychain option prechecked), which I enter in my password.  I then get the first popup again, trying to access keychain.   

I follow this loop a couple of times, then the operation fails because I can't connect to the repo.   As far as I can tell, this is because no password is entered into the git operation. 

How do I get source tree to stop prompting me to use keychain?

How do I get source tree to use my password I enter in to access my repos?

Here are the instructions to setup ssh on bitbucket -
