Position By Position Preview: Point Guard

...well written...will be interesting if MCW gets upwards of 12-15 minutes a game
 
Interesting that you include Triche in the PG write-up. He is our starting SG after all.
 
first paragraph off to a good start:

"so we will leave him off this lost for purposes of the point guard preview, we will leave him off."
 
Also what does this mean:

"but Scoop also sets the zone and makes the defensive calls."

scoop reminds everyone that they are playing zone each time down the court?

Yes but he has a PG mentality. Also, I believe he spends maybe 10 mins per game playing the point with Waiters playing SG. If you had to list a depth chart for PG I believe it looks like this:

1. Scoop
2. Triche
3. Carter-Williams

The zone reads and reacts to the offense. When to collapse, where to rotate, how much to rotate, when to expand, when and where to trap, etc. Those calls/decisions are made by Scoop on the court. Much like a MLB on defense in football.

Very true. Maybe he will be on both lists. Looking forward to the rest of the preview.
 
Your blog is off to a good start, keep it coming! Also, i'm hoping you write up a very detailed report on SU's first game as I will be traveling and am likely going to miss it.

You mean the first game of the regular season? Fordham? Don't worry, I will be doing game reviews for every game. Some more detailed than others, but if you want detail for this game, you got it! Just do me a favor, pass along the Nation of Orange site to some friends and have them like the Facebook page and/or follow the twitter page! Links are in my signature. Appreciate the support!
