    percy

    i know as far as having a big man on the floor, percy and booker are really the only options. i was just wondering what is up with percy NEVER passing the ball? i can see if he had a good FG% like last year, but its way down this year. the team needs to move the ball around more and get better shots. percy is one of those guys who forces shots. and i have noticed that he doesnt box out very well on the boards either. i only watched the first half tonight, but it seemed like OU was getting a ton of offensive boards

    Decent game, some nice blocks. He also passed twice, but they were on BACK TO BACK possessions!!

    Maybe the coaches told him what I always got told. "You only ever do two things so make sure you shoot it up before you screw it up."


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'm a little disappointed in Percy's development as well, but you don't pass your way out of Detroit!

    He played his best game of the season tonight. The guy is shooting 51% on the season. The last few games he has made huge strides.

    Yup. And I'm not at all dissatisfied with his development; he's improved in just about all aspects, IMO.

    His first couple years remind me a lot of Justin Hamilton's, numbers-wise. Maybe he'll have a similar breakout year next season.

    Statistically? On defense?

    Who knows, maybe CFH tells him if you get it, shoot it.

    Re: percy

    I think its frustrating to watch when he's doubled team and still insist on just throwing it up there.

    Honestly, I think Percy has the same green light that Babb, Clyburn, Lucious and McGee have though except he's in the paint and not on the 3 point line. I mean, sometimes Clyburn and McGee take bad 3 point shots (Except McGee makes way more of them) kind of how Percy takes bad shots.

    Disappointing because I remember the Iowa game the Niang/Gibson combo got me really excited because they were animals down there sharing the ball and setting each other up
