IMO, Mick has not played the PG position well this year. Broome needed the bulk of the minutes, even if he struggled at times, to get more experience and more time to gel with this team.

And for those saying his defense is the problem, you're wrong. Check out the advanced stats. They show Broome is the same or BETTER defensively than Justin Jenifer.

Defensive +/-
Broome 2.4
Jenifer 0.7
Advantage - Broome

Defensive Win Shares
Broome 1.1
Jenifer 1.0
Advantage - Broome

Defensive Rebound %
Broome - 5.9%
Jenifer 3.5%
Advantage - Broome

So then let's look at each players TOTAL impact and not just defensive.

BPM (Total Plus Minus)
Broome - 6.0
Jenifer - 1.8
Huge advantage Broome


Broome has graded out as the better defender in Synergy, DRtg, and DBPM.

I don't always agree with Mick on coaching decisions but I'm in the same place on this one. At first, I didn't like the idea of a three headed point guard but Mick's made it work. If the team starts fast, JJ is defending and moving the ball to the scorers. A slow start offensively and Cane seems to bring instant offense and renewed energy off the bench. End of game, Evans handles the ball well and with his size, passing, and scoring ability he opens up a lot better offensive looks than the old "dribble out the shot clock and hope to make a desperation shot," routine.

As those critical of Broome not starting have suggested UC could risk falling 10 or 12 points behind from the starting horn when facing teams that shoot well. Then when he enters the game there is certainly more pressure on him to produce immediately. Unfortunately, we can't look into the future to predict which formula will deliver a deeper run in the tourney. But we all know our hindsight is 20/20 and this discussion will likely remain active until tipoff at the new 5th/3rd next November.

Unless our backup bigs start producing, I would think a starting five of Jenifer-Broome-Cumberland-Evans and Brooks will be heavily considered. By then Trevor Moore might've played his way into contention, but right now Broome/Jenifer are essentially co-starters.

I like cane I think he will be the starter next year but I like him come off the bench right now he has way to many wtf turnovers plus seems out of place on defense which puts more pressure on the rest of the team to recover as far as x-factor I think there is a few things

first Kyle has to play better he disappears way to much and seems to get frustrated if not getting the ball
second the bench needs to play better Scott and Brooks have not been playing as well these last few weeks
last they need to stay healthy GOBEARCATS

That lineup would get torched against bigger lineups. The only way you can get away with 2 PG lineup is if both guards are scorers, which JJ is not. I'm looking to see Trevor Moore or maybe even Keith Williams step into that 2 role next year with Cumberland and Evans at the 3 and 4. Don't rule out Logan Johnsnon either, apparently the kid is very skilled.

Hopefully Evans comes back considering his Draft status has improved to the 1st Round.

I doubt Evans comes back but is he does im sure uc will play often with just one true big.

As for broome... Love what he brings and think he's been used perfectly so far.

All depends on the post season. if he drives a Cincy run, then he's gone. i've posted before, he should go if for no other reason then he won't have the benefit of KW and Clark on offense. Having a defense focus on you, like they do with Clark, is way different then benefiting from the doubles the post command playing inside out through Clark.

I hope as the season progresses Mick takes the training wheels off Broome.

He should be playing 25 minutes a night and getting the bulk of the minutes in crunch time.
