    Colvin

    He needs to start playing a lot more. He provided a nice little spark during the second half and then McDermott took him out for some reason. The offense looked flat once he was taken out of the game.

    He took it to the hoop on the dribble drive too often. Had to get him out of there. This offense is predicated on standing around the 3-point line.

    Re: Colvin

    He made a few plays tonight but overall he's been a liability with his over penetrating and turning the ball over.

    Re: Colvin

    Colvin reminds me a lot of Tinsley. We may need to give him a shot at the end of the game. The other guys (DG, CB, LS and JVB) haven't had a lot of success in close games. Colvin could help change that.

    Re: Colvin

    You ain't kidding when you say Colvin needs to play more. IMO he should start. He is the best pg on this team. When he's out there we actually have a motion offense, which makes us tough to defend....but heaven forbid, we wouldn't want that.

    Key words there, they do not move or cut or do anything at all to try to get open...

    Re: Colvin

    All I know is that we got great point guard play in our first six games and very bad point guard play in our last two. Notice a trend?

    You can't have a functional offense with bad play from the one leading the offense.

    I actually thought DG played well. Colvin is not better than DG... that can't even be debated logically.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    And the reason the offense looks bad is that we actually are playing against d-1 talent and coaching now. We're not going to the tournament with the current offensive philosophy, whatever it is. We need more motion in the offense......thats all there is to it. Its easy for the defense to double big on Brackins when they know exactly where our other guys will be stationed, not moving. We are too predictable....which makes us easy to defend.

    Your looking at it purely from a numbers standpoint though and not understanding that a pg can have a huge impact on an offense without even scoring a point. Colvin has that type of ability. Simply put, DG running the offense makes us very predictable, and having Colvin in there can create chaos for a defense. I know if I was a coach preparing against us, I would have a real sense of calm knowing that if DG is in there I can count on very few variables being thrown my way. With Colvin, I'd be nervous knowing things are much less predictable.

    Re: Colvin

    I think the question right now is, will Colvin stay knowing his aggressive approach is not wanted in our offense. Will we be able to recruit well in the future with this coaching staff now that that is obvious? These are some troubling developments for our program.

    I wouldn't put it past him to leave. Also agree with others, he SHOULD be starting.

    That made me laugh... because it's true.
