and i say... those two reasons are why our 5 star "1 and doner" and our supposed "lottery hopeful" are averaging a pedestrian 13.9 and 12.5 points per game. both seem incapable of taking over a game. here's a good line pearl can use to lure other 5 star shooting guards... " come to UT mr. 5 star 1 and doner... i promise, when the game is on the line... you can watch our center jack up a 3."
at the college level... when its all on the players to "make it happen"... it just means your coaching and scheme SUCK... and your team will be inconsistent.
And I say you are wrong. The reason Hopson isn't playing well is because he is tentative and does not have a scorer's mentality. I didn't see the scheme hurting Lofton's ppg. What the scheme hurts is consistency in our shot selection, but it does give the guards tons of freedom, and someone like Hopson ought to be averaging 17-20ppg out of that scheme.
