    I only have two problems and both are easily fixed

    1. Careless, unforced turnovers
    2. Poor shot selection

    We inexplicably give away a half dozen possessions each game with unforced turnovers...a lot of them come from Royce in all honesty. He is such a great passer but he has to cut down on his turnovers.

    We also have a problem with taking bad shots. I'm all for everyone having the green light, but they have to be smart. No fade away, guy right in your face, shots. Recognizing other open shooters whose shots are falling.

    This team has a lot of talent. I bet there's 10-15 points we give away every game of this variety. We have at least three more wins if we'd managed these better.

    Due to one real problem- lack of a pg.

    3. McGee only played 12 minutes.

    Unless he was hurt, there's no reason he shouldn't have played more.

    Re: I only have two problems and both are easily fixed

    I agree with this. This team does not value possessions, seems like sometimes we are looking to make the spectacular play when making the smart play would probably result in a better shot. Royce makes so many great passes for a guy his size but he also averages around 4 turnovers a game which I would like to see a stat on how many fast break points they lead to. We are also 8th in the conference in turnover margin which is an easy place to improve in with better ball protection. We have the shooters to make teams pay if we'd just setup the offense and let teams decide if they want to double on Royce or not. If they double he finds guys for easy shots, if they don't he backs them down in the paint.

    Maybe partially I guess. We still throw away outlet passes. Force passes in traffic. Leave our feet. Shot selection is everyone. They all have to make smart decisions when they have the ball. That wouldn't change whether we had a point guard or not.

    I understand our style of play dictates some of this. We could still do a much better job. The effort is there. The talent is there. Those are the two most important ingredients. I really believe this could be at worst a Sweet 16 team if they take care of the ball and improve their shot selection.

    Not at all.

    I'm saying our 6 man, a quick guard, should play more against a team full of quick guards.

    This from the same guy who started a thread saying that Fred was a terrible coach tonight? Pot/kettle anyone?

    You are NEVER going to eliminate that.
    Most teams would have the same problems when non-pgs must handle the ball 100% of the time. Can you imagine what KU would be like if Robinson had to initiate the offense?

    Yeah fred has loyalty to a fault sometimes with his players. Like allen earlier in the year when he was just plain awful. And tonight when scotty was getting owned for the first 38 minutes of the game. Mcgee needed to play 25 minutes tonight. But hindsight 20/20
