Is Cane Broome The X Factor?
I love watching Broome play. The offense seems much faster when he is on the floor and some of the passes he makes are fantastic. Both he and JJ are averaging the same amount of minutes with Cane leading JJ in all stats except turnovers. I know Broome needs to pick it up on the defensive end, but he is a much more polished offensive player than JJ. When was the last game JJ even scored? Don't get me wrong, JJ has given this team steady floor leadership this season, but to be elite, do we need more Broome?

Broomes handle can be shaky at times and will throw some WTF passes, his defensive positioning is probably not as good as JJ. But he definitely brings more upside to his game. He is taller and lankier, which helps him recover on defense more and get more steals. He is capable of creating offense for himself or others better than JJ.

I think if Cane can take the next step and emerge this team will be much better.

The other X factor to me is one of the reserve big guys being capable of spelling KW or Gary without being such a dropoff, probably Brooks.

Brooks, Broome and Scott are known quantities. I don't think we are going to get much more from them than what we've seen up to this point.

The X-Factor is Trevor Moore. Moore is a freshman and has been continuing to improve every game. He is good enough on D to stay in the game. If he can turn into the sharpshooter he was in high-school it allows Evans and Cumberland to get some rest. It also provides Cronin with the option of using a big lineup with Evans, Cumberland and Moore on the floor together.

The short answer is YES.

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

It would be nice but I think for this year this is who is going to be. There may be a big game in here down the stretch somewhere but we are just as likely to see a lot more of these 1-2 bucket performances and the miscues that get him back on the pine.

Perhaps he makes the stride to consistently being able to play against this level next year.

Broome is shooting at a higher clip from 3.

Broome 20-47 .426
Moore 19-53 .358

I think its Moore as well. He's the kind of player that if he gets cooking, can knock back 3-4 three's in under a couple minutes without anyone realizing what hit them.

Moore plays incredibly hard on both ends of the court. He disrupts lanes, redirects plays by denying his man the path he wants to take, and never looks lost in no mans land. I love the minutes he gives. He’s one of those guys that has a purpose with everything he is doing out there.

That's is why Moore is the X-Factor. He has a history of being a sharpshooter, but to this point in the season he hasn't shot as well as he could. He is the unknown variable - he has potential to play better offensively late in the season than he has so far. Cane Broome is a good PG, but I don't think he's going to give us much more than he has shown so far.

I personally like Cane coming off the bench when the other team is starting to rotate in their second team. Provides a nice little spark to take advantage of the other team's bench.
