If you like good basketball you didn't like this game,bad shooting and multiple mistakes.The worst- there was NO sign of progress.Losing at home to a crap team .
The one stat that jumped out at me-our starting guards ,Udofia and Reed ,went 3-17 in FGs incl 1-7 from 3s with 4 assts and 3 Tos.This is terrible-they may play decent defense but nothing can overcome that kind of OFFensive production.
The only good thing is that they are a Sr and Jr and won't be around long.
The Pooles are still at BEST a neutral factor.I hope PG hasn't made a bad package deal with them.Scary that Solomon will be our PG next yr prob.
The new recruit Jorgenson PG will help but usually top 125 players are not big factors.
Worst half of the year in the first half. A real step back.
So much for the NIT. Clemson is not a good team.
Again, we can't get the ball in the bucket. Our FT lost us another. Hopefully, each player will shoot 500 FTs a day every day for the rest of their time at GT. Maybe then .......
As my wife said, CBG will get it fixed. I think so too.
Our lack of talent really illustrates how thoroughly Coach Blewitt killed the program.
The PG position on a basketball team may be the most important position on the court. That being said Udofia is not very good and Solomon is still young and still learning. Solomon will be a good PG, just not this year, he will show everyone next year what he is really made of. Unfortunately there a still a couple of players on the roster that the last coach brought in that are holding back progress. Remember Blweitt rarely brought in basketball players. He recruited athletes.
sloppy ball handling and poor FT shooting are killers (then again there are for all teams).
with a little under 8 minutes left, GT is 6 / 12 from the FT line and WF is 17 / 19 ...
oh... and GT is down by 3 (41 - 44)
GT over came giving the WF team's 23/25 FT shooting to when the game.
Kudos to RC Jr for nailing both FT's at the end of the game to give GT the lead.
