    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    As long as he doesn't just dribble down and start launching shots from anywhere. His shot selection is far from selective.

    Is luscious sp? Playing at start of year? Articles keep talking about him being eligible then and making it sound like he will play.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    Glad that is settled, and I think Freddie handled that just right- he tried something in early season to see if it would work out, it didn't, and now it's settled and they can move forward.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    If he keeps playing like he did on Tuesday, I'm all for it.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    As much as anything, I hope this helps Scottie and gets him back into the flow. He's deadly in the right role.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    Good call. He's done well when he's focused on that role.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    I understand Fred's reason for experimenting with Scotty at PG, but I'm glad he's realized that it wasn't the optimum line-up for this team. Hopefully there is still time for everyone to gel in their new roles before conference play.

    I Agree 110% with your assessment, I feel sorry for Scottie having to play out of position when he is a true shooting guard who is deadly from around the 3 pt ring.


    I think that Chris Allen will do better and the team will do better with Allen playing Point Guard, its a position that he is more comfortable with and has played it since his high school days. (see video in the locust street liar)


    Now if we can just play better defense we can win a heckuva a lot more games.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    I'm very glad that Hoiberg decided to make a change and not continue to try and force things with Scotty as the pg.

    Obviously it's too early to tell if Allen will be the answer, but I'm glad to see him tweek the lineup.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    The original reason was because Allen was performing so well at the '2' in practice. It didn't work that way in games.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    Allen is asserting himself at the PG role and hopefully Scotty will be able to settle in as a true 2.

    If it were me, we would see mostly Babb and McGee rotating for one of the remaining spots, and then two of White, Gibson, and Ejim on the floor at most of the time as well.

    This is correct. They loved him off of the ball because he could score in a variety of ways.

    DG was effective last year because he could get in the lane (finishing was another story) which opened up some other shooters. Hopefully Allen has a little of that in him. We desperately need a guard who can penetrate and get to the basket and force defenders off of their guy. I love shooting threes but we tend to settle for them far to often.

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    Since we're talking about the lineup...does Fred start Percy over Melvin after Percy's performance on Tuesday?

    Re: Allen at Point, Scotty back to the 2

    I still don't think this is the solution. We have two guys that I've seen the ability to play pg, Bubu and McGee.
