    Bob Knight said it best last night.

    Last night during the Texas - Kansas game, Bob Knight made a comment about the Texas point guard. He said the Texas point guard is not a good shooter and the other teams defense does not consider him a threat so they sag off him and take away the passing lanes.

    That is the same problem ISU has with Garret (sp?). While I think he is a serviceable point guard, he does not strike fear in the minds of our opposition. He is not a great shooter and he is not quick enough to take it to the defender when he backs off him.

    Well stated. Simple question, what does he bring to the table?

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    Unless DG becomes a 10-25 ft shooting threat or else a super dish man underneath, we need Colvin to take over at PG. Too bad Colvin does not shoot more from outside though.

    We are at a crossroads.

    We need more offense out of the backcourt. Lucca defection was a big hurt.

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    This is why I liked Stinson so much. Although on paper Blalock was the pg, I always saw the two as interchangeable parts, and Stinson wasn't a great shooter. But he was strong enough to create in and around the paint, something Garrett just can't do.

    Stinson proved that if you aren't the best shooting pg, you had better be tough enough to work the lane.

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    I hear him say that too last night and immediately thought of DG. It makes a lot of sense and must be why he's having trouble with entry passes to CB.

    Stinson was so clever in the lane too. He wasn't the greatest shooter but he just knew how to score and score at big times.

    Its really a tough spot for any future point guards for Iowa State. They will always be compared to Tinsley and Stinson, two of the best Iowa State has ever had.

    Your completely right. DB isn't a good ball handler/passer (relative to most Big 12 PGs) and he isn't a good shooter either (relative to anyone). They give him so much space and do not fear him. Now that Lucca is gone, if SC isn't hitting his 3's they don't have any fear of either of our starting guards... not a good thing.

    Our frontcourt has been fine for the most part the past 3 years, but our guard court just kills us.

    I don't understand why it's so tough. Why is it any more difficult for the guards being compared to Tinsley and Stinson than it would be for any other player to be compared to the Mayor, Cato, Fizer, Homan' Vroman, etc.?

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    Actually both DG and Colvin shoot about 37-38% from the 3-pt line. I actually think DG is a little better shooter from 3-pt range and Colvin a better shooter in the 10-15 foot range.

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    Stinson was so strong he could bully the guard defending him. The defender would get pushed around when Stinson drove to the basket. He was also just enough of a threat at the 3 pointer that the other team had to respect his shot.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Bob Knight said it best last night.

    Definitely in college basketball, and maybe in all of basketball, the point guard is the most important position on the court. That player must be a great all-around player...shooting, dribbling, decision making, defense, etc. The best teams have really good point guards. Our best teams had good/great point guards! We don't have that now.
