I would say if Christopherson was healthy we win...If we hit a reasonalble number of 3s against K-State instead of starting 1 for 15 we win...Of course Lucca wouldn't have played as good of D so it would probably be a wash there.
Even a healthy Christopherson would have an off game now and then. Losing Lucca was huge.
Its not like Lucca is the only guy who gets beat of the dribble.
Excuses. Nothing but excuses. Had Lucca been here it would have been that he was taking Scott's minutes resulting in bad defense. We just are not good. We lack coaching and thus fundamentals, and although Colvin is starting to establish himself as a leader, we currently don't have a strong leader on the floor.
Losing players has nothing to do with this. They don't help, but this was a bad team before and is a bad team now. You can't just say if Lucca plays were 9 points better and would have won tonight. It dosen't work that way. We lost. And we are a horrible basketball team. We will be a horrible team next year.
This. I'm tired of hearing about how grateful we should be that SC is playing through mono. He is terrible, perhaps through no fault of his own, but he is terrible right now. Missing those two threes at a crucial point in the game was bad enough, but his defense and rebounding was even worse! I still have hopes that SC can be a good player when he has recovered, but he is doing nothing but hurting us right now. At least get someone with energy to run up and down the court in there..
Oh, and yes I think we would've won this game with Lucca, we also would've won this game with Wes Johnson while you're at it. We aren't getting either of them back.
