    and last nights game showed that coaches shouldn’t be focused on what the players are doing wrong. They should focus on what they can do right, and then build and adjust the team accordingly.

    He played great last night!

    I know I come across as negative towards him, but I hadn't seen where he had performed at a level that necessarily warranted further minutes.

    If this move to zone makes it so he can play 15 or so minutes a game without hurting us defensively, that's great. And I'd be very wrong.

    I'm perfectly fine not knowing. Anyone who is worth a **** as a manager knows that you praise in public and discipline in private.

    12 points, 5 rebounds. Good hustle. Wish that last 3 would have gone in, but I feel like he's done enough to get more pt

    Very difficult to imagine having a coach who doesn’t see his value, but here we are

    Seemed to me he did get repeatedly burned on defense but at least it was by a maybe headed to the NBA kid. In this instance I think his hustle and points made up for it though.

    For a dude who “can’t play defense”, Prohm seems to always have him guarding one of the other team’s best players. Against Baylor, for example, Prohm had him guarding Butler.

    The whole team is not good at defense. At least put the kids of the floor that can score. Give us a punchers chance

    Sometimes matchups dictate putting Lewis on a teams taller wing player, so having Lewis guard a opposing scorer can't be helped. But from what I've seen opposing coaches know Lewis is a weak link on defense and they know that we typically switch screens. So they create situations where we switch Lewis onto a talented scorer.

    Lewis seems to be giving a lot of effort. Give more of Jacobsons minutes to a Lewis and go smaller. Jacobson has seemed to mailed it in

    How many minutes should he be playing?

    He played 21 today. He was coming off of a bad ankle. He played more minutes than Nixon, Jacobson, and Conditt.

    I just don't see that he is being treated that unfairly.

    Jackson was out. Lewis had had good games and then had a dnp the next hand.

    Jackson was injured for today's game or who knows in we play Lewis.

    Dnp equals did not play. Remember when Lewis started and played well and then did not play the next game because?

    I remember when Lewis started and we lost the worst game in college basketball history.

    he wasn’t dressed Wednesday.

    Nixon got burned repeatedly on defense today, but at least Lewis brings offense to the table.
