    For what it’s worth, in very limited minutes, TJ is at 2.4 pts/FGA and 11.76 FGA/40. I’d be fine with giving him some run, if he’s gonna try to make things happen. The sample size is ridiculously small, but I think we’ve got to shake things up.
    I agree that we need to get WAY more FTs. But I also wonder if that’s due, in some part, to insufficient FGAs from bigs. I think JG’s lack of productivity at American was largely about matchups. The “4” for American, (Reed) was a problematic match-up on the defensive end. He lives out at the arc, and that doesn’t suit JG for defense; that’s my best guess at coach’s logic. JG only got 17 minutes. I question that decision a bit – I think he would have been a matchup problem on our offensive end – but I don’t believe that I have the eye for defense.
    I’m totally comfortable with AP. He might not have taken the stat leap we hoped for, but I think we’ve seen very good things with versatility – he goes to the basket now. But we need another player on the wing (I hate that term) with him on the floor. Some combo of BA and MS would be my choice.

    Since MS can and does go to the rim,I would like to see,as long as we’re all spitballing,KR,MS and BA on the court together. D will suffer but we will score anx get FTs.

    Our team is young and obviously Doc has not found the right combination, so I agree we should keep switching up til we find something that works. LFN makes an interesting point about us having the ability to beat anyone when our guys are on…..
    I really like CS but pointing to the DePaul Game really doesn’t work for me since it was the highest number of points CS has scored in his LU career!!!
    His career avg is around 6 ppl.
    A Shooting Guard HAS to shoot and less than 6 ppl avg is dismal.
    Unfortunate, since we all know he is capable of more!!!
    I think how biggest problem is how we are handling the pick & roll- we should be doing exactly what they do in the big league- it works for them!

    Gonna expose my weakness – don’t know D well at all. How do they best handle the pick & roll in the bigs? Switching?

    Edit: trying to educate myself. Guessing that the thought would be the “zone up” option in this video?
