    Hurt seems like a good kid. When he plays well and with confidence he gives some valuable minutes.

    I thought his role was solely to recruit his brother? Guess this won’t help matters.

    You thought wrong.

    Things that make you say hmmmm.
    Who was this text supposed to communicate with?

    Pitino's text has "pacify mommy and daddy Hurt" written all over it.
    Your kid gets recruited to play and then you don't see your kid play. It can grind on parents who want to see their kid play, regardless of victory. It can be even more frustrating if the team loses and your kid didn't contribute. "If only my kid had played..."
    Do not under estimate the power of parental gossip... especially when they have another kid you're recruiting...

    The text is completely that imo too. Remember dad is an Asst coach on the 7 and 5 Matthew Hurt -JM team with the 6'9 Meister kid to pair him with. How do you lose playing against the teams they play with those two kids?

    Being old school, I recall the days when an important message like that was communicated in person. Times have certainly changed.

    Hurt plays much better when IW is in the game.

    I know coach knows much better then do I, but I believe we need that we need IW in the game a lot more. Hurt is constantly moving and making himself available, but it is not just him. The only other player that we have that can anything like IW, is Carr. Last time I checked he can't play this year.

    IW's body language may have been poor from time to time, but this is because of his self-expectations. I just want to see him play 30 minutes in a game and see if that body language won't improve.

    Look what the little guard from Maryland did to us Tuesday night by penetrating.

    I only got half the minutes (IW played 15 minutes) that I had hoped for today. He probably cost himself 4 or 5 minutes by getting thrown out.

    I just hope that his minutes continue to grow through conference.

    You might be right. Washington seems the most willing to dish to lesser players for easier shots. Stockman and Omersa have also been the beneficiaries of Washington passes. I remember during last year that Washington seemed to be one of the more willing perimeter players to throw the ball inside to Bakary as well.

    He gets in position inside and passes the ball out to the perimeter after getting the ball in the post better than anyone else, he might have made a big difference in the second half against Maryland.
