I was a little disappointed in his "ball-toughness" and his finishes tonight. I expected a little bit more from him. We really needed a couple of those finishes during that late run. This is not a terrible loss.
Good point AirWalke, Taylor reminds me of stinson so much, its like we have him again this year. While he does make nice plays and has scored a lot we could really benefit from him slowing down and not trying to do everything himself.
I am NOT suggesting that we drop Jiri from the program. We just need some things from him that he didn't give us tonight. As I look back at the game, I think Gray and Wesley played nice games but the rest of the team was a little iffy.
Neither take it strong enough to the basket. Everything is soft and they kind of fade away. I didnt mind seeing clark post up tonight. It is a mismatch with whoever is guarding him. he is lanky and jumps high enough to get good looks consistently inside 8 ft
Homan was a *****...and I loved it! It doesn't look like Jiri and Marsden have that type of personality. It is now Mac's job to find a role for them. I don't mind Jiri shooting from the arc but those 18' j's are usually a bail out shot. I honestly don't know what he can do with Marsden...he is so limited. Jiri is not a banger and it will be tough to make him into one. He is more of a Michalik type of player.
It's just so hard to watch a 6'10" waste his talent. It is obvious the guy could play the blocks and maybe drop an occasional 10 to 15 footer. But unfortunately after watching him all summer in the Capital City League there is nothing different about tonight then the rest of his play. He loves to hang at the top of the key and think he is a European shooting guard. I have never sworn at my television so much as he ****** away possession after possession. What I'm disappointed about is GMAC not chewing his ***!!!
