I'll give him his chance before running him off. With that said I would like to add another PG.
Beating a dead horse, but I disagree with the people claiming this.

Did you expect him to average 7 points this year?
I didn't even expect him to score 7 points all season tbh.

He's played 2 games, bro. Let's see what happens. I would love to be proven wrong, but the only good thing I can really say about him at this point is that he's better than McBee.

If Reese can hit a couple of 3's and average 7 points that's a plus to me. Hell, McBee jacks up shot after shot and may make only one three all game long. Reese needs some more beef and experience, but he can do more than just jack 3's all game long. McBee can only do one thing and rarely can stay with his opponent.

I know what you mean, but you have to admit he is away better than what you expected.

Eh, I'm not as amazed as most others.

If he shows consistency, then I would definitely say he has potential. I just don't see that happening at this point. But, he's only played 2 games, so we gotta give him some time.

What were your expectations in his thread? Mine iirc were he wouldn't end up on campus, and if he did he wouldn't play.

Well freshman year and in 2 BIG games he's averaging 22 minutes a game and 7 points, not too shabby.

In his 2 healthy games he has been our sixth man, who expected that?

How bout this: I say it's comforting knowing that Reese has shown that he can be effective in his first 2 games.

Fair compromise, no?

Also gotta say he isn't shy about shooting. For on unheralded guy playing in only 2 games in his freshman year, he really has the green light to pull the trigger.

Reese also is one of the few that acts he cares out there. Going after rebounds, loose balls, etc.

Lol absolutely.

Honestly though, say he continues it and finishes the season averaging 20 minute and 7 points a game...what's your feeling on him?

That's true. Didn't think of it like that.

Right now the biggest advantage about Reese is he can be on the floor and not take minutes from McRae or Richardson. McBee's horrendous play to this point is compounded by the fact that for him to be on the floor, 1 of UT's 2 biggest contributors so far this season have to be on the bench. Shooting 25% from 3 is bad enough, but doing that while McRae sits on the bench watching should be a crime. With Reese at least it's Hall that is sitting on the bench.
