    When will Garrett pass the ball

    Now I love the Iowa state basketball team, but I i am finding it harder and harder to watch the games. The reason for this is because I can't stand to watch Garrett. I don't know i guess it might just be me, but am i the only one that thinks he never passes the ball. Scott Chrisopherson is shooting over 60 percent from 3pt range, try and pass him the ball. I don't know i just wanted to get that off my chest.

    Check DG's # of assists and report back. Does he have some bad games, yes, as do all players.

    It is called reverting to the mean. His mean is not 0.00. He will make shots. when he does, I better not see you around these parts.

    Yes! He is second in the big 12 in assist, so I think he passes plenty. He did take a few shots today he probably could have passed off, but I leave it in his hands. This is his team and he leads us. Being 2nd in the big 12 in assists just shows he gets the ball to where it needs to be...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    DG had some bad turnovers this game, but we won the game and thats all I care about. Everybody has down games. I'm too happy to get down on anyone right now. Enjoy the win!!!!!!!!!!

    Maybe you watched the last 8 minutes or so, when we were trying to run some clock?

    Christopherson scored 30 points and got 13 shots off from 3 point range. I think we fed him the ball plenty tonight. Diante had a horrible, horrible shooting night, but he still dished out 6 assists. Diante has had games in the past where you can legitmately criticize his decisions, but I think for the most part tonight he was pretty smart with his shot selection. And don't let the fact that his aggressiveness opens things up for everybody else on the team go unnoticed either.

    Re: When will Garrett pass the ball

    He took the shots they gave him, and he didn't make many. Like a good scorer, he kept taking the shots, despite continuing to miss them.

    He was just off tonight. He has been making a good percentage this year, so he has the green light. If this game becomes the norm, then he will not take the shots. Until that happens (and hopefully it doesn't), then I will hope he puts up any open shot he gets.

    Re: When will Garrett pass the ball

    DG took way too many shots tonight. I don't care how you slice it, anyone who is 1 for 15 at the half is hurting your team. I did like that when he had a chance to throw up another prayer near the end of the game that he passed the ball. He has clearly had better shooting nights, and he will again, but some times you just have to realize it isn't your night, and let someone else take some shots.

    Diante Garret is about to become the 2nd Cyclone to ever get 1,000 pts and 500 assists. Get bent.

    Re: When will Garrett pass the ball

    It makes me sick how much people rag on DG. He is the heartbeat to this team. The offense is built on spacing when DG drives/slashes to the hoop it creates lanes for shooters. If he puts up a shot off the drive the defense has to collapse which creates lanes for putbacks and offensive rebounds. people in the game thread calling for him to be benched must want us to lose by 30 cuz thats probably what would happen...Be happy this kid is where he is at....and honestly his shot is so far ahead of where it was the last 3 years its not even funny
