Or Kemp...

I'm not saying that less heralded players can't improve, but let's not kid ourselves. A young EP would have eaten Martin alive.

Every good PG we have ever had has came in confident from Day 1. That's what it takes to make a great PG. He has to have '**** of the walk" attitude.

I don't know whether Jeremiah could stop Perry, but I doubt Jeremiah could get the ball across halfcourt against him. EP had the quickest hands I ever saw. Dude was averaging 7 steals per game fairly late in the season one year.

RE: Jeremiah Martin
You can play well without a good point guard. We went to the Elite Eight with Kemp, but we also had a backup who was a spark off the bench, and we had a whole lot of talent on the floor in the other four positions, including a one and done 1st rounder. We have none of that on this team -- yet, anyway -- so we better find us a point guard quick!

I like him as a kid, but he is not the pg we need to take us to the tournament. He can not break his defender down when we play quality teams.

Love Jeremiah but I agree

He can go out and find a true point guard @ the Juco level for starters.
