[quote=“tundra, post:1, topic:712”]I am serious.The team’s problems are “not his fault.” He is trying very hard. His shot selection is OK. His shooting % for the season is good.
Why, is he everybody’s scapegoat? Heck, he is not even starting anymore or playing major minutes. Some people say “we have poor front court play.” Well, we have worst back court play.
This team has serious problems. They start with shot selection and foolish turnovers. Then there is poor perimeter defense. These are the 3 biggest problems. They primarily come from back court players. [/quote]
And there lies the major problem. This kid has the talent to be a VERY GOOD player in the Big 10. Hell we have all seen it, but this year he is playing like a rookie. He is not going after balls the way he was last year, he isn’t going back up strong with the ball when he does get a board, he isn’t boxing out which allows for offensive rebounds for the other team and he isn’t playing with any passion.
As far as our shot selection, yeah it sucks but our guards have seen too many passes being mishandled by our bigs only to end up as turnovers.
