2018-19 Iggy Hoops Leader Scorer

Also very unfortunate the Hughes injury happened in warmups. Even one practice together knowing you won’t have him is big, especially for the mental preparedness.
Welcome to the world of being a backup.Game experience. The ability to stay in the game after a mistake and gain valuable confidence in themselves. Ex - Goodine pulled after a missed lay up. If Buddy got pulled after every bad play on defense, missed forced shot with 25 on the clock, or bone headed pass, he would be averaging 10 min a game or less.
XPar for the course. You throw out a vague criticism, and when challenged, you throw out more vague nonsense.
Every kid on the team gets to practice, is part of the S&C program, and gets an opportunity to play. What they do with that opportunity is up to them. JB’s job is to win games. He’s got to play the ones that are going to help the team win. Not every kid is going to pan out and not every kid is going to play meaningful minutes. The kids you’re probably complaining about aren’t very good right now, and have shown it in games. Players don’t develop right away. It takes time. Like, lots of practice time and time in the weight room. It’s this way at just about every program in the country.
I’ve got some bad news for you. Howard Washington isn’t suddenly going to become a good player if he gets 20 mpg. He doesn’t play much because he doesn’t do much when he’s in. That’s the case with most of the kids on the bench.
By the way NC State played 7 last night. They must not be affording their players development options either.
You don’t think we’ll likely be the same or worse next season if we lose Elijah? We don’t have great athleticism, so our defense isn’t going to be any good again. And two of our best offensive players, Boeheim and Girard, have to play because we need their scoring, but are both weak defenders. They lack length and athleticism so I fear our defensive problems will not improve next season.I haven’t been afraid to lay my criticism when I felt it was warranted.
When things have improved you better give credit.
Not many if any fans had real expectations this year.
We are better than I thought and losses suck but this team is a year away.
Their is reason for optimism for the future. I didn’t see it earlier this year but I see it now.
Obviously we have flaws that need to improve but the pieces are there and developing.
Just be consistent. People remember.
They have gotten game experience. Plenty of it. Goodine, Washington, Braswell, Carey, Edwards. Not one of them exactly shined in multiple games of game experience.Game experience.

Plenty. Love to see your definition of plenty.They have gotten game experience. Plenty of it. Goodine, Washington, Braswell, Carey, Edwards. Not one of them exactly shined in multiple games of game experience.
Buddy has 9 20+ point games this season. He’s our best shooter and 2nd best scorer. He’s going to play. Know why? Nobody on the bench does much to replace his scoring/shot making.
I dont know if hes going or where he might go. I just hope that he stays.Where’s he going? Why would he stay for 3 and not get the degree?
He’s got an outside crack at the NBA with a strong senior year IMO. He’d have to hit the 3 next year, and start to get his grown man body(definitely a late bloomer there, but it could happen over the next few years), but you never know. He could get on the fringes and eventually work his way there.
