    Yep. Looks just like every other guard. Enough said.

    The team looked so much better on offense when he was in the game. I think itís time for coach Pitino to cut him more slack and give him more minutes. Itís the only way he will learn, and in order for this team to progress from decent to very good, the good version of IW will be necessary.

    I thought this thread would be about "Jelly's" bone-head move to get ejected. One step forward, one huge step backwards.

    A point guard especially can't lose his cool like that.

    Yeah! Mason NEVER would have done ANYTHING like that!!

    Washington looks fantastic when he's facilitating the offense.

    He looks horrendous when he dribbles down and forgets he has 4 other players on his team.

    Which he rarely does anymore.

    He shouldn't be faulted so much for that fast break dribble drive into the defenders in the Maryland game. There was a certain logic to taking the ball to the hoop before the defense was set. Unfortunately, while Washington is a very good ball handler, he is not a particularly explosive athlete and those defenders were both much taller and better athletes than him.

    I think you need to watch IW a little more closely. He is exceedingly fast. Contrary to many on this forums belief, Pitino and I hope IW is trying to change a bad behavior of not using the other four players on the court. Playing more minutes will not help unless he is playing the right way. Pitino has him on a leash, IW knows this, and I think he is ok with it. He is definitely improving, we can all see that he can be amazing sometimes. He relies on his athleticism, and his work ethic might be suspect. I see his posture is improving, shoulders back, stand up straight.

    He is very fast with the ball because he is a very good ball handler. He does not appear to be a great leaper or finisher at the bucket. He reminds me a bit of Evan Turner in that respect: great ball handler but not a great athlete or good shooter. Washington is also short whereas Turner was comparatively tall for a college guard.

    Accusing him of "not using the other four players on the court" is nonsense. He is a very willing facilitator who looks for others. I think you are the one who should be watching him more closely. You appear to be working off pre-conceived notions or maybe just plagiarizing from others.

    This is the most accurate description of IW. Not sure what what the other poster is watching.

    He is very fast because he moves his feet and has a huge stride when he wants to get up the court. He is a willing facilitator sometimes, sometimes he dribbles around ignoring the other four because he is looking for his shot. That and he is not shown to be a good shooter from three. And the Jelly roll does not work so good when three defenders are towering over him under the basket. Try watching the game not just the stats. When he is good, (a couple games) he has been really good. On average he has not been. This should be obvious or Patino would be playing him more. He is improving, but he is not as good (yet) as the other options we have. I would not want to bear the cost of him sacrificing the game in order for him to get more minutes in the hopes he finds some behavior changing discipline.

    My hope is he recognizes the results when he does what coach wants him to do.

    Today was a great example

    As noted in another thread, IW is so much better at point against the zone D. The ball barely touches his hands and he's passing it before the zone can react. His passes to the big at the FT line happens so fast that it opens up other options like cutting forwards or the turnaround shot (as Oturu made).

    I sure wish Coffey wouldn’t fall down so often when he tries his layups. Totally out of control.
