Our Fate Is Tied To Dandridge
I said it before the season started, and I'll say it again. We will go as far as Dandridge takes us.

With Wiseman, we needed Dandridge to be a contributor to be a Final Four team. Now we need him to be a Sweet 16 team.

We have possessions with most of them without a single player in the lane. You can't run an offense like that. IF Dandridge can be a bit of a threat and get us 8 and 8, we can be good. If he can't we won't. He is a good passer and he makes a super high percentage of his shots. He would open things up for our guys outside and make everyone better.

It isn't fair to put it on him and if he can't, he can't and he shouldn't be blamed. This is how I see us.

I still believe we go as far as DJ contributes. That is unless LQ or BE get on some kind of run.

And the possessions without players in the lane feels more like coaching than players to me.

I think it's safe to say we will only go as far Precious Achiuwa takes us.

Malcolm will be needed to help him take us however so far we can go.

I just wanna make the big dance. Then let it all play out.

RE: Our Fate Is Tied To Dandridge
Our fate is tied to Penny.

Penny needs to figure out how to make dandridge and lance successful. Lance is fine on defense but needs help on offense... Dandridge is going to struggle if your require him to switch the screen and role.

You gotta have a different defensive strategy with dandridge... not a zone

Our Fate Is Tied To Dandridge
I’m thinking we go as far as Tyler Harris goes. Probably not the popular vote around here. It’s all or nothing when he’s in the game and it looks like he’s going to have to play more and more.

If we are going to continue playing offense the way we are, we have to get him as many shots as possible IMO. It’s better than a turnover and he’s been very consistent this year besides the Georgia game. It’ll also open more up for Precious and DJ slashing to goal.

My only concern is when Tyler gets run off the 3 line he isn’t making the best decisions when he gets into the lane. He did hit a nice floater in the lane today though.

I could be way off here but this is what I’m seeing as of now.

Probably Dandridge AND DJ. It has been a tough stretch with DJ getting over the flu. Hopefully come Thursday he will have had enough time to be fully over it.

He needs to incorporate the MORANTULA floater

One thing Tyler does so well is that he brings a higher energy level to the game. As he improves his decision-making, the positive impact on the team's overall performance will skyrocket.

Absolutely and to me that is a major improvement from the prior year. Last year, he tended to float around more and if his shot was not falling then he seemed to get disengaged but this year he is out busting as soon as he steps on the court!

I agree.
Precious is a given.
Isaiah and Lance both play like bad 3’s instead of solid 5’s.
We need Malcolm to help out down low, collect some cheap buckets and pull down rebounds.
