Do you think DG is the 2nd best point in the conference??
He has an excellent assist rate at #2. What do they use to come up with that? His TO rate is 67th in the conf. Again, what is the formula used? I would say you need to look at combination of different aspects to conclude who is best PG in the league. I do not think he is the 2nd best in the league, but I do think he is the best we have, at this point.

One of, but probably the biggest flaw of our team.
Buckley had some bright spots but is not good in extended minutes.
Don't get me started on DG.
CC has all the potential in the world. I have high hope for him (hopefully he sticks around)
I think most of us can agree that the point guard position is the most important part of the team, right? It's like trying to win with a bad QB. I try not to be negative but this position was tough to watch tonight and for the last couple games.
And yes, this deserved it's own thread(Mods feel free to merge)
After watching DG in the Wisc. state tournement, and then 2 years at iowa State, my conclusion in Nov. was we will not see a successful basketball team until someone beats out DG at PG. I stand by that conclusion.
I see 3 main problems. I 'think' they're all fixable.
-Our free throw % is 62.9. That's 309/334 teams in D1. (how many of those are front ends of one and one's)
-Consistent rebounding effort
-making shots inside 5 ft with or without contact (DG and others)
Most of the time when a point guard is being effective he doesn't get credit for
the assist. Usually the pass that causes the D to
breakdown is the play but the next pass
gets the assist. Our team holds the ball to long and DG rarely makes a pass that causes the D to react.
