    One thing most tourny teams do well

    Is get to the hoop and finish and more than one player can do it. This is why it is key for Colvin, Buck, and Gilstrap to bring that to ISU next year. Good ball handlers all around really change the game.

    DG can get to the hole as good as anyone we are bringing in as well. Hopefully he can develop to where he can finish some.

    I can't say I agree. If this is the case, Colvin would be a letdown. I don't expect Colvin to be a world-beater right away, but I do expect him to surpass DG without a ton of trouble.

    If he finishes, these discussions are entirely different next year

    Hopefully Colvin can come in and be as good as Blalock was his freshman year. That would be a huge boost.

    Simply having more than DG being required to handle the ball should help EVERYONE including DG. It would be nice for him and Buck to gain needed improvements over the summer.

    Re: One thing most tourny teams do well

    Honestly, watching the tournament this year has made me question the McDermott system even more. The original poster is right, these teams can all dribble penetrate. We haven't been able to do it since Stinson left. DG is quick enough to get to the hoop whenever he wants but at 130 pounds struggles to finish. Lucca has spent about 12 seconds in the paint this season combined. Buckley showed flashes against Iowa being able to drive to the hoop and finish but in conference play seemed to stay out on the perimeter.

    Buckley penetrated during the conference season every game he was in there.

    Most of those guys just weren't quick enough to do it.

    Our main goal is to get Craig to stay. If this happens and the guards get to the hole we will start winning.

    Im sure Buckley is good at getting to the hole. I just hope he improves his D and can really reduce his turnovers so we can occasionally utilize him.

    I agree with those two areas for improvement. Those seem like areas that our coaches would probably work with him on.

    If he does those things he should be starting.
