    Re: Booker's post game tweet

    I can see why he averaged 4 ppg in the Missouri valley.

    Re: Booker's post game tweet

    I haven't caught much of the Applebees show with Fred lately. Has anyone asked him about Booker?
    I trust coach but at some point just give us an indication.

    I agree with this, you have to put out in practice. Otherwise practice goes to the dogs. It is also pretty plain from the comment, that Booker has been lacking effort in practice. Step it up Booker. I have said this all year, we need him. But he has to work for it.

    Because he was a Freshman averaging under 14 minutes per game?

    FYI, per 40 minutes, his MVC numbers:
    Freshman year: 10.9 points, 10.3 rebounds
    Sophomore year: 15.1 points, 9.7 rebounds

    Yep, terrible per 40 numbers. Those aren't bad for a freshman/sophomore. MVC isn't a top tier league, but it's far from an easy or bad conference. Some of the players in the league are half way decent players.

I can take bad play, but laziness drives me insane. John and Eric must have said 10 times tonight how tired the guys were. If he is leaving Book on the bench to "make a point" I think he is hurting the team. Put him in for a few minutes. See how it goes. If he commits stupid fouls, or takes bad shots, take him out and don't put him back in.

    To watch Niang and Ejim always in foul trouble, or playing to avoid foul trouble, while Booker sits on the bench is crazy. He has played some very good basketball.

    On a seperate note, if a guy is playing hard it is almost impossible not to commit a foul once in a while. I think Will got a foul in OT, and they said it was his first. How many open layups did they get? Why wouldn't he hammer someone and make them earn it at the line. He has to be stronger.

    Re: Booker's post game tweet

    Maybe Booker should try and figure out why he's not playing. Looks to me like he has no idea how come he's not playing. If I were him it might be a good idea to figure out why he's not getting any minutes.

    Percy just needs to learn to pass. Anymore, every time he is fed the ball he is double-teamed, and continues to put it up. Hell he got tripled teamed at one point tonight and still shot the ball. Percy could have some serious assists if he would learn to pass.

    This! If Percy would kick it back out every now and then we'd have a lot of open 3's instead of forced up, contested 8 to 10 footers. I hope Percy shows some growth in his passing because his post offense 1 on 1 is really pretty good. Passing would also help get him more of that because teams would be less likely to double him immediately

    He would have to be willing to ask the tough questions, which media-types around here are not willing to do.

    Re: Booker's post game tweet

    If I am Booker I would go into the coaches office and ask what I have to do to see playing time. That is only if he truly cares about getting playing time, which I hope he does.
