Then where are the assists?

He's had one. Also, they play a lot of one on one. They have the number one player in the country. They throw it to him and he just goes to the hoop. Don't talk smack because he's loaded with talent around him. He's not MJ but he looks like good passer and tough defender. It's better than what we have brother.

Didn't know looking for productive stats in a DI PG recruit was talking smack. For the year his APG are low and others on his team are up. I hope he's great here, but I'm not overly optimistic right now.

Just saying he is shuting down the other teams top 40 player/ point guard. He can handle the ball really well and their offense is one on one. It looks like they just out athlete you and not out scheme you.

Hope you're right. Rathan-Mayes is averaging 6.8 APG, so somebody is distributing.

Our fan base one day will be happy and support our players. We doubt everything because fans just won't believe that good things happen to our university.

Hubbs>McBee
Maymon>Hall

I watched most of this game. He'll be fine. Just plays with a team full of superstars. He does the little things well. Plays defense, gets the ball inside, and sets up the offense.

Well I wrote a huge write up about Landry, but my phone was acting stupid.

I watched the game today and was impressed with Landry. He didn't make and flashy plays, but did exactly what you need a pg to do.

- Defense: he defended really well. I don't remember seeing the person he was defending get past him once. He had a nice block and a nice steal.

-Offense: He drove the ball in once and made a contested layup. Don't think I saw him shoot any jump shots though.

-PG skill: he is an excellent ball handler and can pass the ball pretty well. He found the open player a lot and had a couple of really nice passes, and a really nice no look pass when he drove to the lane.

Final thoughts: he is what we currently need. He doesn't turn the ball over hardly at all. He gets the ball up the court with out turning the ball over. And he makes solid passes that lead to points. If you go by highlights or stats he isn't going to impress you...but if you watch a whole game of his you'll be impressed by his defending and his pg skills. Don't expect a scorer but a passer, what we need. Overall I think he'll do fine at UT.
