    He was a tough as nails guy on a team that already was ahead on the toughness curve.

    He made them better with his attitude as well as his game.

    Bolton In reality isn’t good. He’s just the only one that could jack shots up after Haliburton got injured. What did he average... 5-8 turnovers a game when Haliburton went down? Score 20 ,turn the ball over 7 times is not a good player when the opponents score 10 off of his mistakes. He’s literally a 7th man. I’ve said it all year. We have 5 open starting spots. These guys aren’t big 12 quality players. Prohm sees it... he just can’t reel anyone in. It’s to bad, he has coaches that are suppose to “recruit” but they can’t help develop or coach worth ****. Plus they can’t get anyone here LOL. S*IT SHOW.

    He single-handedly beat Michigan State in the Final 4 game scoring 22. He scored 17 points against Gonzaga to get them to the Final 4. Are we really debating whether he would have benefited that team?

    You know what our roster was that year.

    Assuming RS-junior Nixon is not there and an eligible Mooney is.

    Who does he take minutes from...?

    After Halliburton went down, Bolton averaged 12.7 points and 3.3 assists to 2.9 turnovers. So no he did not turn it over 5, 6, or 7 times a game like you're imagining he did.

    I have not seen a single guy make a decision yet on where they're going, so don't say Prohm can't reel anyone in and don't say these guys aren't Big 12 caliber players when P5 schools all over the place are offering these guys.

    Thank you for your input though.

    Question and I don't know. When Bolton drives the lane and get's his shot blocked, which happens like 3 times a game. Do they count that as a missed shot or a turnover? I honestly don't know. Because if it's a blocked shot. That is why it seems like he had 6 to 7 turnovers a game in my book.

    This take is bad enough that I might have to bookmark it so I can dismiss any other basketball take you have.

    Bolton had NO HELP offensively. None. Nothing to take the focus off of himself.

    He probably takes some minutes from
    Babb, Wiggington, THT and Halliburton. Probably plays 25 minutes a game on that roster. His defense would have certainly been better than Wiggs and THT. His would have brought a better toughness than anyone on that list other than maybe Babb.

    "A little bit of everybody" is kind of a non-answer.

    I would believe in the strength of your point more if you could give me something more definitive. I do not know if Mooney was a great individual defender, too.

    Beard has a way of making everybody into a good defender. Bennett at UVA is the same way (see Marial Shayok, who I would not have called an outstanding individual defender at Iowa State). It is their system, not the individual players within it.

    Not a turnover it's a missed shot. And yeah probably it seems like he's had more. He also didn't have really anyone else to kick it to on the wing besides Jackson. Think of driving to the lane, looking for at your options around the perimeter and you have Nixon, Grill, Lewis, and Griffin wanting you to pass it to them. Yeah, I'd choose to lay it up too, regardless of whether or not I'd get my shot blocked. Lol it probably was a higher percentage shot!

    Like most, would've loved to get Mooney. If we had, IMO, TH would not have started and might be back next year. To start the year, THT would have also been coming off the bench and been back this year. Starting lineup:
    NWB
    LW
    Mooney
    Shayok
    Jacobsen
