Yeah those other coaches might cite players such as Oden, Cook, Conley, Lighthy, Diebler, Koufos, Sullinger, Craft...
One year Matta decides to not play alot of Freshman and all the sudden he is the anti-Christ.
The only one I have seen that should be getting more minutes is Williams. Scott is out of control and a TO waiting to happen. Ross just stands around the 3 point line, and McDonald - no explanation needed.
I think it is pretty much a consensus that Amir should see the floor before Ravenal......Amir can at least be a game changer with is shot blocking....a lot of it depens on match-ups but regardless he should see the floor more.....maybe matta realizes that he needs his bench (FINALLY?) to make a run our last few games leading into the B1G tourney and the Dance.
I still think this team looks VERY beatable.......going on a 20-0 run then Minny switching to a zone killed us because we went cold for 5 min and allowed them back into the game. I actually do not understand why ANY team would play man to man on us. The only decent outside shooters we have are DT, Buford, and Lenzelle....and they have proven to be VERY inconsistent. If i am an opponent of OSU's I am playing zone the entire game....shade on Buford a bit and make Craft and DT actually score from the perimeter. Teams have a better chance of beating us that way than in man-to-man.
+1 to you......people should at least have the balls to debate after downvoting someone instead of downvoting and running off to never be heard from again.
You can't play Sully at 4 and Williams at the 5 against most teams that play 4 guards and 1 big. You see what happens when Sullinger tries to guard the 3 point line or gets put into a pick and roll... It's a disaster on defense.
One Year Later and I see Matta is still Blind. Hopefully Amir will get the majority of the minutes for the rest of the season. Ravenal has reached his cieling which is not very high for that matter.
It is funny how true this statement was. Ravenal was painful to watch, he had no chance in this game and really hurt the team when on the court, and it didn't help that no one can shoot as well.
Is Matta capable of taking this team to the next level (NCAA Championship)... I have my doubts! Amir Williams should be starting over Ravenel and playing serious minutes & Matta needs to recruit waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better!!!
I didn't think he had it in him but Amir ate Withey's lunch twice I believe. Overall probably played his best game of the year.
There's no doubt that Amir has more upside than Evan. However, Amir has major lapses and can't seem to play a 3 minute period without committing a foul.
Exactly. As Amir becomes more consistent (and confident) he will play more. And I have no doubt he will as we can all see the light coming on. But as much as we all can see what he could become, he ain't there yet. And if you think it would just take him playing more game minutes, think again. He will get there but we'll need to be patient. Long way to go before March.
