The guy never quits and he's always consistent. Theres a lot of nights when Clyburn and Lucious just disappear like they didn't even show up for the game, but Ejim always is consistent. If he's not scoring he's playing defense and getting rebounds.
He leads the Big 12 in double doubles, and he's so quiet about doing it too. He just plays. Im not sure that Ejim will ever be the type of player that just takes over games, but I doubt we'd have 16 wins right now if it wasn't for him.
I love the guy, but really I have no idea how someone this clutzy plays that well.
Without a doubt he can be when he plays what should be HIS GAME. He's got a great nose for the ball and as in "inside 4." He needs to play "move your feet D and dribble as little as possible. He can flash to the outside and only take the three when he can set up.
I cringe when he puts the ball on the floor and puts the game in his hands playing one on one. Tonight didn't end how we wanted it to, but if Edge plays that style the rest of the way, I think we win 4 more. This was a really bad match-up for our guys and they played well. Just critical timing on their errors once again, and we just can't buy a break on the road.
Unfortunately, or defense had too many blown assignments. And we just don't do well running clock. I wish we'd just run the same offense and quit trying to burn clock. We forget to move without the ball until its too late. One of these days its blood in the water and gas pedal down at all costs.
