Peterson does not have a lot of skills, but in several games this year he has been the only guy that looked like he belong on the floor and the only guy giving his all. DG, unfortunately, is the guy that has had some real questionable play at times. Mostly I think he just needs a few less minutes a game and Buckley should take those.
DG can not handle it at this level as a soph. He needs more time to gain some control to his game. He can not shoot a long range or a mid range shot. Defenders are just slacking off of him enough so he can not beat them off the dribble. Even when he does beat someone he struggles to finish a shot.
I would like to see Diante and Buckley split time in the next game, just to see what the competition would do for both of them. I also don't want to see them both on the court at the same time until one of them develops a jumper as good as Petey's....then they can take some of his minutes.
I agree with CyCloned...Petey has been very valuable at times this year. He may be outmatched skill-wise, but he does the little things we need.
