    Re: Percy and Booker

    Percy has a great ability to finish around the rim, when he isn't forcing a terrible shot. I'm sure it has to be maddening for the staff, as I am sure they stress to him the difference between a good shot and a bad shot. Right now he looks like a kid whose Dad is his AAU coach, telling him to shoot it when he touches it. There is certainly ability there, it just needs a lot of coaching.

    Re: Percy and Booker

    Im surprised about the amount of people poking at Percy's offensive game. Offense is the least of his worries.

    Nice post idiot!! Really pay attention to matchups and the fact Percy is just a young soph. So if he transfers whats you plan for next year hero??? I'll trust Fred who just beat the #11 team in the country and has us headed back in the NCAA tourney direction. Please don't post your negitive crap on here...

    Re: Percy and Booker

    I keep waiting for a spark from Booker and up to recently thought Booker would be a key to our success. The reality is a zebra can't change his stripess. He might have a nice game here or there, but I don't think he can be counted on. If stories that he twittered before the TT game that he can't wait to go on vacation- my guess he's going to have to dig himself out of the dog house.

    In Percy's case, I think he has to completely dedicate himself during the off season in the weight room- from both a strength & fitness perspective. I put some blame on the coaching staff for Percy's development. IMO our staff does a poor job with teaching guys on getting low post position on offense and defense.

    Re: Percy and Booker

    I think Anthony Booker is capable of being a good player. Definately has the size and strength. He was more
    productive last year than this year. I can remember a monster dunk of his
    in transition against Texas in Hilton last year!
    Just a guess, I think Book might be fighting a minor injury bug (again
    speculation) he mentions treatments of ESTIM & ice in tweets occasionally.
    Ever wonder if that could be a nagging problem and the cause of his decrease in productivity???

    Re: Percy and Booker

    I still like Booker off the bench. He can really give us some good minutes with his ability to hit the 3. As for Percy, PASS THE BALL!!

    Re: Percy and Booker

    Sometimes we are too hard on these guys...Got to remember they are kids ranging from 19 years of age to 22. They are not ALL NBA pedigree players. They are going to have slumps, and are going to recover from those. I think Percy Gibson is an exceptional, good, young man off the court.

    Agree on Booker, he could help this team but he seems to have quit. During time outs he stands back from the huddle and acts completely disinterested. He never played yesterday and his attitude must be showing up in practice. Regarding Percy I was excited about his future last year as he had some quickness and nice touch on offense around the basket. He's put on some weight this year and I was hoping it was muscle, but he seems slower and has lost his touch. Maybe he will get that back and help this team yet this season as we really need some post offense inside once in awhile, especially when Niang is off the court. Maybe Niang can work with him in the off season as somebody mentioned. Is Homan around during the summer?

    You are clearly not very bright. What would we have to gain by a 5th year senior transferring?

    That's right..... Nothing. Booker's scholarship opens up anyway in a couple of months.

    As for Percy, he isn't great and has some holes in his game but he's a lot better than our other post options.

    After Percy and Booker you have.....Ellerman

    Keep shooting Percy. The team needs your inside presence and they will start to fall.

    AB, big threes in big games are coming down the road this season.

    Re: Percy and Booker

    Has FH said anything about Booker recently? I would have liked to have his size in there at times last night, particularly when OSU was getting open right under the basket.

    Re: Percy and Booker

    Man, everytime Percy gets the ball, I cringe because I know he will throw up some ugly over the body double contested shot NO MATTER WHAT. I really hope Armadi or Edozie can pass out.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Percy and Booker

    Percy actually looked to pass out on the one possession where he had a clear lane to the basket. That tells me that the message is starting to get across.

    1 of 10000 doesnt show me much. Every lay up he had was created by someone else. every time he tried making his own shot, he threw up a horrible extremely low percentage shot.

    I dont know how a big guy on a team with this many shooters can not ever kick the ball back out.


    With that said. His offense looks amazing compared to his D/rebounding/toughness.
