    Gmac's answer to a caller tonight - wow

    So Coach McDermott was talking about how Cal put their 5'7" point guard on 6'5" Lucca, and how the Cal player's small size and great quickness made it hard to screen him so that Lucca could get free to get a shot off:
    Caller: 'I would think that you could clear out a side and have Staiger post him up down low then?"
    GMac: "Well, that's not exactly Lucca's cup of tea. He's not really comfortable down there."

    To coach McDermott's credit, I've never seen Lucca inside the three point line on the offensive end. :)

    God forbid that he is honest--a lot of guys lack post games.

    Shocking, a European trained guard doesn't have much of a post presence!?!

    I don't think that should be to the coach's credit.

    Truly a shocking development.

    Would the same caller have asked why Ham doesn't hoist up more three-pointers. Different guys have different skills.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I don't see anything wrong with his answer. Lucca is pretty much a pure shooter.

    Can someone ask the coach how much snow we are getting tomorrow while we are at it?


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    More of a criticism of Lucca. Let's face it, he's limited. I don't doubt he couldn't post up a 5'7 guy.

    If he only brings one thing to the table he shouldn't be starting. It isnt hard to teach someone some BASIC post game so he can take advantage of a guy he has 9 inches on.
