    Sadly know one really knew about hit last year. Now EVERY team knows he our guy and have easily figured out his game. Add in the extra help from Gilstrap and he's not our only guy on the floor anymore.

    Re: where did brackins go?

    yeah well quite frankly brackins has been almost non-existent, i dont care people doubled team him last year to after the KU game and he still averaged 20 points/10 rebounds, now if he doesnt figure out the double team he gets frustrated and almost looks like he gives up, doesnt give his best effort not like he did last year

    Re: where did brackins go?

    There doesn't seem to be any quick decisive moves from Brackins this year.

    He doesn't seem to make any quick aggressive moves to the basket before the double team gets there and every time the double comes he doesn't square up to face it, he just backs out of the post.

    Also he doesn't get the ball in the post much this season either.

    Re: where did brackins go?

    I'd get frustrated, too, if my guards were completely inept at EVER getting me the ball on the block..

    None of our guards make the pass when it needs to be made. They're always a second or two too late.

    Re: where did brackins go?

    None of those highlights have him double teamed. Regardless, this year, is a disappointment from him, and he doesn't handle he double team well. He also holds on to the ball too long, allowing the double team to get to him.

    He is buried deep in coach's bag of tricks and 100 page playbook.

    Was last year's surrounding cast better than this year's? I firmly do not believe that it was. Our guard play has been the same or a little better than last year...so that "excuse" is bogus.

    Re: where did brackins go?

    He definetly has not had the year ( so far) that we all hoped for, but by no means is he a having a bad year. He is still our leading scorer. 15.9pts and 7.8 rebs is not too bad of a line.

    Re: where did brackins go?

    That game against Baylor last year was an absolute dunk-a-thon for CB. He probably had at least 6 thundering dunks in that game. It just seems this year whenever he tries to be aggressive it looks like he's forcing the action. I'm betting he's more frustrated about how the season is going for him than we are.

    I don't think our guards were better last year, but I do think they were better at getting him the ball when they needed to. Part of the blame goes to Brackins not posting up as hard, but we need to get him the ball on the block more.


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