    Yep. A PG who can't shoot and has average quickness. Tough to be effective for an extended period.

    Could someone break down what playing Hurt more would have done?

    Maryland seemed to have some dam good athletes. How would playing Hurt more have helped against this?

    I'm seriously at a loss on this.

    Interesting how IW seems to be the reason for sooo many of our problems.
    Of course, Pitino's father set the stage for this prior to the beginning of the season.

    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 agree 100%

    No they do not.

    Just to be clear, it is apparent to me that when iw is in the game Hurt plays better and scores more.

    Good grief.

    What are the reasons that Coach Pitino does not play IW more ? There have to be reasons. I have mine.

    And what are Rick's reasons?

    Wish i knew or i would not be asking. The only reason i think he does not play him more is because IW playing more lessens the chances to win. Specifically what i think is he takes bad shots and grades out as a terrible defender. What do you think are the reasons Pitino has ?

    Before the season started (in October) Rick (not Richard) called out IW as the weak link on his son's team and suggested Richard might have to go in a different direction.
    What would your body language be after that?

    Of course there are reasons. I don’t speak for Richard. Surely you know that?

    Mine would be his defense is piss poor and he has made poor decisions with the ball, mostly.

    Pretty good chance he is seeing what you are. Anyone not seeing it will not let themselves overcome what they wish for to see the truth. Coach sees it clearly. Same phenomenon as fans say that was terrible officiating in a loss but never say how well it was officiated in a win, they pay it no attention. I still think he can become a really good player but there were dozens of high caliber coaches who passed on him for a reason. Being great on the Globetrotters is different that being great on a great college team.

    He should never shoot seven seconds into the clock without passing the ball unless it is an uncontested layup. I would also make the rule that he has a couple assists before he shoots unless it is an uncontested layup

    Would you make that a team rule?

    No one is saying IW is without flaws - we're used to flawed players here.
    But speaking of good coaches, Izzo worked and figured out how to make a very serviceable player who made strong contributions out of Tum Tum despite his shortcomings. I expect Pitino to do something similar instead of this constant whining about him. He didnt inherit this player from someone else's team vision.
