This is the strongest perimeter team NMSU has had since 2009-10 (Gibson, Young, Laroche, and Castillo). The only thing this team lacks to be really special is a dominant lower post threat we can count on from game to game... Yes, we are missing Pascal Siakam. Too bad Bollo Gnahore had knee issues. He might have fit the bill. Still, this is a very good team; even better once Marlon Jones and now Sidy Ndir are fully healthy.
Huggins, Ndir, Baker and J. Jones are all capable of getting 25+ points on any given night. It's been along time since we have had that many weapons on one team.
Add Chua,,,,,He has grown so much since the beginning of the Season,,,,He is getting ready to go OFF!!!!
It's been a long time since we had a coach that understood and knew what to do with his players and bring out their talent.(TRUST THEM) Weir still has some growing to do, but he is starting to get it pretty quick,,,,
Seriously - could you imagine Siakim playing in weir's system as a junior right now? He'd be perfect for it. Woulda, coulda, sholulda. Damn.
He'd be killing it and probably raising all boats in the process, but I do think that some of th development we've seen from Huggins, Chuha, Taylor and Ndir would not have occurred if everyone was still waiting for Pascal to save them on botched offensive possessions and covering up all defensive mistakes at the rim.
