    Allen vs. Mcgee

    I know Mcgee is coming off his best game ever and Allen is having a tough time right now but Mcgee should be getting a lot more minutes at this point. He's doing all the things Allen isn't like hustling, contesting shots, rebounding, shooting well, and being a leader.
    If you don't believe me, watch a replay of the game last night and just focus on Allen for a few possessions. I guarantee you'll understand why he wasn't in at the end of the game.

    Without Allen we lose to Kansas by 20. McGee is a great player but I think his best role is to provide a spark off the bench.

    Like I said, watch Allen for a few possessions last night. He has had way more games like last night than the Kansas game.

    McGee is playing well but he is not a PG at all. CA is a serviceable PG at least.

    Definitely agree with you here. I'm just saying I think we'll see Mcgee eat into more of CA's minutes than anybody else's as the season goes on. It would be great to see consistent effort and shooting from CA the rest of the way though.

    Re: Allen vs. Mcgee

    Next season will be interesting with the shifting of positions again once KL comes in at point.

    Re: Allen vs. Mcgee

    Tyrus is perfectly suited to bring energy off the bench, he may not always bring points but he usually brings energy and effort.

    Is it just me or does Tyrus remind anyone else of Kantrail Horton. Stocky, full of energy, hustles and scraps, good shooter.

    And I think one of the reasons that effort and energy has made such a difference lately is because of what he is replacing.

    Could not disagree more.

    Without Allen, we beat Kansas.

    We were up double digits, and 4-5 times that game, Allen took a terrible shot with 25+ seconds to go on the shot clock. Gave them way too much time and killed our momentum.

    I don't really see a lot of shifting next year. KL will be the primary PG with Bubu next in. After that you have some combination of McGee, Clyburn, and Babb at the 2/3 spots. White, Booker, Gibson and Ejim in the post roles.

    Right now, everyone is playing their correct role except Allen at PG, IMO but since he's gone next year, there shouldn't be as much shuffling.

    Tyrus plays with more passion and energy. He has earned his minutes.

    Allen played pretty well in that KU game. If you can't see that, then I don't know what to tell you.

    If you have not noticed, our guards have the green light whether the shot clock is at 30 seconds or 5 seconds. If they have a good look and miss I'm not going to be to upset and obviously neither is Freddy. Allen has taken some questionable shots but every time he misses people hammer him for taking a bad shot.

    I think he sat more last night do to his defensive effort. He's definitely not as involved on that end as he is on offensive end and gets lazy at times. Tyrus had the hot hand and that is why they stuck with him.

    We will need Chris Allen down the stretch if we want to make the tourney.

    Re: Allen vs. Mcgee

    Hard for one game to be an indicator, but I only saw CA take one questionable shot last night. Much better than previous games.
