    Babb

    Lots of criticism for Lucious and Clyburn, but Babb hasn't started out well either. He was the "x factor" to me this year. It's early, and the suspension didn't help, but 6.5ppg/31%FG/26%3FG/3 rebpg obviously isn't helping. His defense is critical, but he has to find a way to get it going on the other end. You keep waiting for his breakout game...

    Re: Babb

    Lets hope his play is backwards from last year... struggling early vs. struggling during Big 12 play.

    Re: Babb

    There is criticism of Clyburn? Why? He's struggling with his shot but he still leads our team in points and rebounds(almost a double double). He's really struggled to start and has still been good. Just wait until his shot comes back (which he has proven in his career to have), than he will be a very tough guard.

    As for Babb, he simply needs to go straight up on his jump shot. He's not a guy who can fade or lean to the side and make shots. You can tell instantly if he will make a shot and it's by his setup and jump.

    Re: Babb

    Babb will get up to speed soon. As far as offense, I think he's lost his confidence a bit. He's so important on the defensive end that I think it's ok if he is selective with his shot and doesn't score a lot.

    Babb hasn't exactly been lighting it up on the defensive side of the ball either. He seems to be reaching more and a step slower than last year.

    Babb held UNLV's best shooter to 0 FG's on Saturday. He's not going to shut down everyone he faces, especially someone like Kilpatrick.

    I understood and agreed with everything quoted above, but I wouldn't feel right about myself if I didn't point out that this paragraph was full of ****.

    What? Here is his stat line this year:

    Pts....R...A....B...St..F...TO
    14.8 9.2 2.8 0.3 1.0 1.8 2.8

    How is that anywhere near a triple double? Oh, I think I see it...
    14.8 + 9.2 + 2.8 + 0.3 + 1.0 +1.8 + 2.8 = 32.7
    32.7 = 11.5 + 11.0 + 10.2

    I'm just giving you crap. I know you probably meant a double double.

    I agree completely minus the double double, not triple double description. It ticked me off when Doug Gotlieb was the commentator for the Cinci game and kept saying pretty much that Clyburn was so successful before because he played against bad competition at Utah and to start the season at ISU. Funny the next game he went 21 and 15. I bet Dougy would have felt silly if he had to do the UNLV game as well.

    why? clyburn played terrible against cinci and great against unlv. hoiberg ran him at point, clyburn was much more aggressive, and he was a completely different player.

    as for babb, i think he's a headcase. and he looks ridculous strutting around with his mouthpiece hanging out of his mouth. if you look like a doofus, you better be able to shoot, and babb is launching bricks.

    Why? Because he claimed Clyburn wasn't a good player based off his play against Cinci and not for his career overall. The point I was making is, he would be eating his words when he saw him drop the double double on UNLV? Didn't think that concept was difficult to understand.
    And Babb is a headcase now because he has his mouthpiece hanging out and has missed some shots? Look in the mirror buddy.

    Re: Babb

    Color me not surprised at Babb's shooting percentages. I've said many times, he is who he is.

    That said, he is a very valuable part of the team.

    There's a pretty good pun in this quote

    Re: Babb

    You wanted Doug to comment about things that hadn't happened yet? Doug was correct with what he said at the time. He never said Clyburn wasn't a good player.
