RE: Bad Night for UAB Basketball
The dreaded Sophomore Slump for Bryant. His shooting numbers are down across the board from last season. Only averages a point less a game but we needed him to carry more of the scoring load.

I was thinking he might be first team all conference level but it hasn't come together yet. Perry seems to have become our most consistent player.

Part of is being the point guard verses last year being the two guard. As point guard he has to get everyone involved in the game.

He has to exspend a lot more energy defensively playing point as well, which effects how much energy you have on offense.

RE: Bad Night for UAB Basketball
Bryant does have the ball more but he's only averaging about a half an assist more per game plus his A/T ratio has gone down. So he's scoring less and taking care of the ball about the same or slightly worse playing almost identical minutes. He has added almost an extra steal per game.

2017-18 FG 46% 3FG 32% FT 75% Ast 3.2 TO 2.2 Stl 1.1 Pts 13.6

2018-19 FG 39% 3FG 26% FT 66% Ast 3.7 TO 2.7 Stl 1.8 Pts 12.7

If Zach's numbers don't improve, it's gonna make it very tough to be in the top 4. He hasn't been bad but I was hoping for more of a breakout year from him. Plenty of games left to go off.

Only our second true road game of the year, third if you consider Alabama A&M At the Von Braun a true road game. I’d like to see a few more sprinkled in before conference play next year.

Offense was offensive. The most disappointing part was we came out of multiple timeouts on offense with still no clue what to do and took bad shots or turned it over.

I hope you posted that with 'tongue in cheek',,,,That guy has almost no skill at that position ( slow , poor dribbling and passing skills,,, and no offense either ).

How many coaches sons in D1 basketball are good enough to be on the team their dad coaches.

Hurtado was referred to Ehsan by Vásquez. He obviously hasn’t been as good as advertised, but that happens sometimes. And we have given out gifts before. Several players have been scholarship players prior to Ehsan that weren’t D1 quality players. Every school has them. Hurtado May turn out ok

Kinda like Smallwood. If the coach has no intention of playing them why are they at UAB?

Hurtado looks like a miss as does Bertain. I doubt either ever see many minutes at UAB.
