    The times he has, he has corrected it where he may try and slip a second one in there like he was early in the season," said Hoigerg. "He is a heck of a player."

    I know Lucious gets some flack from some people, but he's a good player. We'd have a few less W's without him, I think.

    Hoigerg may be a scout. CW has a good spell check unlike me.

    He's turned a huge corner since the Tech game, we're not the same team when he's not on the floor. He has done a great job of knowing when to take his shots and when to defer. He may not have huge numbers but he's a difference maker, I think his experience will be even more crucial as the games get more important.

    It also seems like he's become one of the vocal leaders on the team, at Texas he was talking to everyone trying to keep their heads up.

    KL is very inventive. He can pass many ways, he can shoot the three from many positions, and he can drive. He is fairly fast.He seems to be stronger than his actual weight. He is looking good. Looks like he is overall better than CA.

    Same time that Bubu came back. Coincidence?

    Definitely a coincidence, since Bubu's so terrible and could never contribute in the Big 12.

    Hard to believe he is the same player as the one that started the year at times. Although that has obviously showed up a few more times in conference play, but for the vast majority of time in conference he has been great. Really fantastic.

    I think Bubu giving him a blow has been crucial for KL, keeps him nice and fresh.

    If we have Bubu the entire year we are ranked in the top 25 right now.

    We are now at full strength since Bubu came back.

    Lucious still gets a ridiculous amount of criticism on these boards. I think people hold him to a crazy standard, personally. All point guards turn it over, and Lucious has done it fewer than most (especially since Big 12 play) yet some still aren't pleased with his play.

    I think people are displeased because when he plays bad, he plays really bad and it almost always leads to a loss. I think people just hope for more consistency. Also, when he does have a bad game his body language tends to get poor and his bad decisions compound on themselves.
