Walker, Avery, Zabo.

13/41

The 13 is OK, actually, but not coupled with the 41. And considering that your four big men are 8/14, and De LaRosa only takes three shots, well, the conclusions are obvious.

Does anyone see anything that could give us a glimmer of hope for the season? Go a little deeper. Does anyone see something that can give us hope for the next year or two? Please lift me from my depression.

I would say this. We're still adjusting to life without one of the best players in school history. I think as a whole the team got used to being able to just throw it in to Hall and get out of the way when things got tough. It's taking longer than any of us would like for them to learn what to do now, but there's still hope that they'll figure that out. Tonight's game was a quicksand game. As soon as things started to turn poorly we started panicking and it made things much worse.

As for hope for next year, well we've got two guys with D1 experience and good very size for their position redshirting. We've got a JUCO guard coming in that's 60-125 on threes this year. And we have a HS guard with good size coming in that's playing very well.

Every year there are whispers and stats of what’s on the way...how’s that almost always worked out.

Anybody know what's happened to Taishaun Johnson? Is he still on the team or why is he not playing? He averaged 12.5 ppg as a Freshmen at S. Alabama. Lord knows we need scoring!

We also struggle down low with putting the ball in the basket, and seem to turn the ball over way too much when we force it there. To me, when you can’t shot the ball at a decent percentage, you need to have offensive sets that open up looks for you, and our offense hasn’t had that “option” for years.

Most MAC teams, Kent included, probably run more plays than you think. Just watch the PGs and the bench with all the hand signals going on, or if you are close to the court, listen to both teams hollering out names of plays or numbers .... the problem I fear is players 'breaking off plays' ... not running them through but believing they see an 'option' that really isn't there.

While Kent seemed to fix this problem by the end of last season, the difference is no JHall to just throw the ball to at the rim where even a forced shot could become a free throw attempt.

Finally ... all but one home team in the MAC not only won Tuesday night, but comfortably by double-digits. So every road team clearly has some issues. ... Who fixes them first will be the challenge.

I did not see him no bench last night, he must really be in doghouse to not even travel with team. Bernstein was ahead of him in rotation?
