    The naive statistics are certainly not trending in his favor, against high major competition this season.
    Jan 19 - Penn St (home) - W 65-64 - IW 22 mins, 0-4, 2 asst, 1 steal, 1 TO
    Jan 22 - Michigan (away) - L 57-59 - IW 12 mins, 0-1, 0 asst, 0 steal, 5 TO

    Everyone has an off night, sure. And he won't be benched for the rest of the season, by any means.

    But last night ... he just needs to try to forget about that, and move on.

Plans B, C, D, etc. were to hope Coffey would be it, a grad transfer would do it, a transfer would be eligible, or what. I get it he tried; but it all seems like, "Damn, we can't rely on what I've recruited. How about we ...?"

    Team had too much potential to be this lacking and inconsistent at this position.
    Yeah, that position is in pretty bad shape. What is maddening to me is how little Pitino has been able to get out of IW against decent competition this year. His game looked more broken than ever last night. IW has talent and court vision, but has regressed in his ability to play within the gopher offense or adapt to the pace of a particular game. For me, that’s on the coach for not being able to identify how illprepared he was for that game.

    Not having another true pg on the roster to practice against hurts Washington.
    Simpson can really play defense. Stuff that works for Washington against weaker teams won't work here, yet he wont find that out until it costs us.

    Iowa is playing good basketball, and better defense then in the past, but they don't have a bulldog perimeter defender. If we can run against them Washington has a chance to play much better.

    Do you think IW goes against Carr at all ?

    Carr was supposed to be our PG this season. NCAA screwed us on that one.

    Michigan game was a tough one for him. Simpson is an excellent defender and forced several bad turnovers. While Iowa doesn't have a good on ball defender, they will end up playing a lot of zone. Will probably start in man and go to zone if Iowa falls behind. IW's penetration and pushing the pace will be a key to winning and breaking the zone.....need to get upcourt before the zone sets. Still not confident in the zone offense, there just doesn't seem to be enough off the ball movement (or good outside shooting to keep them honest).

    Would love to see it click for this kid on a consistent basis.

    Speaking of Carr.... I just went back and looked at his year at Pitt and some video just to refresh on him.

    .333- 3 point shooter - good for a frosh- should pair well with Kalscheur next year
    .81 free throw shooter -good
    okay assists to turnovers ratio - might be a reflection on his teammates?
    Pitt- I knew they had a bad year but wow- 0-18 last year in conference, so that shakes my confidence a bit on Carr
    In his video he looks to be a PG and has a great handle and vision
    Nice jumper
    Like IW -not an above the rim guy at all- no dunks in the highlights. But he is taller at 6-2 and looks like a better finisher and the video was against ACC teams

    I hope he plays defense and can stay with and pressure other B1G PGs.

    I hope he pushes IW and makes him better

    Anyone else see IW acting like a petulant child at the end of the game? He was standing outside the circle during the rouser and staring off into the distance. Ed Conroy came over and tried to talk to him, but IW seemed really pissed off about something.

    I have defended IW relentlessly on this board and I thought he played well tonight, but this really pissed me off. Its one thing to not be the rah-rah guy, but to be standing completely seperate from your teamates after a big win...is completely unacceptable. I really hope Pitino takes him aside and chews him out. I'd rather have IW not on this team than have a bad locker room guy on it.

    Why? 100% true. Can't have that garbage on a squad fighting for a tourney bid.
