Drag seems like he has given up on the court. I can imagine that watching film of that SC game made it even more apparent. Actually every game film would. The young guys, specifically; T. Honeycutt and B. Lane are learning nothing from the play of Drag and Roll. Those young guys have talent, but no confidence. You can see it in their play. Moser is lost and Nelson is really on his own with his efforts. In games, he is really the only guy that is willing to put the effort on the line.

I really believe that this season is over. Thanks seniors but these young Bruins need to develop their own identity on the court. And they'll do that through PT, making mistakes and building confidence.

For example; I think KU's John Wall is an amazing athlete, but he is turnover prone, and forces up a lot of bad shots. There is a lot of budding talent there, but he's young. The difference is, he's the center of the offense and he doesn't come out of the game. He's getting schooled on the court, in game situations.

We need that for Lane, Honeytcutt, Nelson and Lee. I think Moser and Morgan (when healthy) should be in that group as well. These guys have got to go to school on the defensive end and really buy in. Honeycutt and Lee can really improve offensively if there are plays for them, and people help them create those shots.

Abdul-Hamid is a steady hand on both ends and should run the point. And CBH has to keep drilling defense into these kids heads. At this point losing all the rest of our games is not as important as how much the kids improve by the end of the year.
