    Hollins was a pure shooter that could hit an open jumper from anywhere. Nate is more of a scorer than a pure shooter.

    Was that when that Wisconsin player undercut him within the 1st minute of that game?

    3 of 14 shooting needs to improve....but 10 assists is awesome.

    I need to let it go but that reel occasionally plays in my head and it still pisses me off. A foul was never called but that act of undercutting Hollins was absolutely intentional, given Wisconsin's history of consistently making contact w/ shooters after the shot - a Bo Ryan learning gem that ended a players season.

    Am a lot more worried about Murphy and Lynch than I am Mason. Mason is and will be fine. The other 2 starting to have serious concerns, especially Murph.

    Do you think the coaching staff will be able to help set them right?

    Pitino mentioned in OSU presser that he's been leaning on Springs to be a leader and try to get Mason and Murph back on track / playing with confidence.

    He also made it clear that he didn't think iso scoring is Murphy's game and he needs to concentrate on other areas where he excels. It was a relief to hear Pitino say that, I've been wondering if this obvious fact is being communicated to Murph, very glad to know that it is. If he continues to try and go one on one and turn it over / force bad shots, he really doesn't have an excuse. I sure hope Murphy is taking this to heart and will adapt, we need production out of him moving forward and it's going to be tough if he doesn't accept his role. I think they should have Richard Coffey sit down with him - would be great if he emulated him.

    Not quite sure I understand 'back on track/playing with confidence.' I understand back on track /playing with confidence ''shooting wise," but he is the top guard in terms of assists in the Big Ten. He is playing with confidence assist wise, and if you are confident in dishing assists, I might argue he is not 'unconfident' shooting, since either dishing out a pass for an assist or shooting can be either or split second decisions. He is one of the top guards in the conference in the least amount of turnovers as well. Of course we need him scoring more, but to say that he is in need of confidence may be a bit of a stretch. I say you leave him alone so you don't end up messing up his assist and turnover play.

    Mason played with confidence versus Wisconsin. Did lots of things well besides shoot. He did not do anything well versus Penn State, including playing with confidence. So, consistency from your leader is what you'd like to see. Murphy played without confidence versus Wisconsin...pouted and contributed little. So, overall play, not just shooting. Body language to teammates as captains is critical. That's what is being discussed...leadership.

    Murphy only has 1 double digit rebound game since his huge 21 carom night against Mich St. 1 in the last 6 games. 1 rebound in 26 minutes against Wisconsin!

    Hopefully he stays within 10 feet of the basket and gets to work. 10 reb a game would seem easy if he committed to it.
