There is a lot of talent on this team and they will get better. Barnes set this situation up by not having a program with any upperclassmen scholarship players. Hopefully he has learned a lesson.
Kobongo sealed the deal by being careless and selfish. He could make up for it by coming back next year. Otherwise he has jacked this program.
These two big mistakes are mainly responsible for what we see on the court. Many good coaches would be helpless to compete at a high level under these circumstances.
I won't say they quit yesterday because that would indicate that they actually started. I am tired of him talking about effort though. He brings that up way too much during close loses when it's more about strategy and execution. His players are not developing. Sheldon looks worse then last year and while Lewis has had some nice games his dribbling is very suspect and he doesn't go to the hole enough. I have seen no improvement by Ridley. I am stunned as to how he was so highly rated. Despite yesterday you can see flashes of real talent in Felix and Poppi. The guy that me and a lot of others scratching their heads is their best player; that's Holland. I know he has turned down others but if we want a new coach try Coach Stevens at Butler. Don't know if we helped or hurt our chances with Randle yesterday. Only he does.
