He is an average point guard. This year he is more prone to turnovers than he has been in the past, but he has never been outstanding in the assists or ball-handling areas. Sometimes I don't get why so many expected so much out of him. Look at his stats at MSU.
He seems to be picking it up a bit in the scoring and with the assists, but he still is taking some bonehead shots when he should be passing off, and still is trying to force passes. To me, the best description of him is a PG with only an average at best Basketball IQ.
I don't know if he is a blessing or a curse. Right now, he is what ISU has to fill the position with very few better options on this team.
Lucious is a blessing. He will do well in conference play.
At this point, I think we just need to evaluate all of our options. I look at the KL situation like with Steele at QB this year. Eventually I think it got to the point we couldn't risk it with Jantz or Barnett and had to take a chance with SR, which luckily worked out very well and looks like we've found a starter for now in FB. So when do we take the chance on something else to see what can happen on the court? Worst case scenario we go back to KL and hope he improves.
So next question, do we try out Long for a game or two or do we just stick with KL and try and let the kinks work themselves out?
Refresh my memory. Did he quit MSU in the middle of the season or was he booted.
Korie shot 3-13, had 7 turnovers, and got outplayed on both ends of the floor by a freshman.
It's pretty clear to me at this point that he's going to be a below-average point guard in our league.
7 turnovers, 3 for 13 fgs, 2 for 8 threes; did I miss the part where he kept us in the game?
I said all last year that Lucious is not good and you guys weren't getting the great point guard you thought he was. I still stand by that comment.
Until he cleans up the turnovers, curse.
