Rodney playing the role of go to guy/cotton/henton/ Dunn is not the proper role for him. He is effective and at his best when the game comes to him. I think fans expectations for him were way too high. Would love to see kyron attack the hoop on a more consistent basis and draw contact but also know when to pull it out to avoid those few costly turnovers from over dribbling . Also want him to be more aggressive with his pull up jumper. Lindsey showed the ability to create his own shot which was promising to see. Holt is a beast. Young has flashes but has a lot of work to do. Isaiah Jackson and Dialo showed great growth and potential .Although their were key possessions in the past few games where they definitely forced shots when it wasn't needed ( Tyler harris ). They definitely won games for us. I am definitely high on those two. And Malik White, I absolutely love. Reminds me of Abdul Abdullah , but with a better shot. Definitely took some forced shots when maybe the ball should have been in someone else's hands, but I love that he isn't afraid to attack the defense . Fszekas , maybe he can make the junior year jump , a la jalen. I really love that even though his minutes have been cut down, he's still very active on the bench, cheering his team on . All in all, I absolutely love this team and the way they play. Every player will hopefully come back improved, coaching staff come back improved. Gotta have the killer instinct coming out the opening tip in both halves. Gotta figure out what the issue is with the slow starts. We have point guards that can get to hoop at Wil but it seems like they go.into that atrocious plan of just passing the ball around and just settling for poor shots. We need the killer instinct .Coaching staff needs to tell Cartwright, Jackson, and Dialo to take the Damn ball to.hole every time. We had a phenomenal season, but that 17 pt.lead hurts. And I love Cooley but id like to see him direct some anger at the officials. He's one of the top coaches now, no reason he can't ride the officials. Maybe catch a T to fire the boys up. Encourage a some hard fouling . Their really is no excuses next year. Whole team returning. Hopefully we've learned to show no mercy and pu
t teams away. No more losses to bc and depaul. And no more excuses...we re are very experienced team, no reason to get seeded anyless than 7 , the myth of t.he big east bias is not true, we got 7 teams in. If we don't want to play in Dayton, then let's win the games that we are supposed to win. Can't blame the fans, the Dunk has been rocking consistently. Students have been showing up. So all those excuses are obsolete. Now it's all on this team.
