We're 2 for 6. We lose to Tech. We scored in the low fifties yet again. By every measure, this season is spiraling out of control.
The most frustrating thing to me is that Coach Fox seems clueless on how to fix it. He has some help on the bench, but he won't use his roster effectively.
He insists on starting three power forwards. Do not start Nemi, Thornton and Donte Williams. They're not quick enough to cover shooters, and not talented enough to give us a scoring punch early in the game. Decide on one of them and sit the other two.
Putting Donte Williams at center is the most obvious answer. Meanwhile, slide KCP to the three again and start Kenny Gaines at the two. Since neither Vincent Williams nor Charles Mann played that well, then go with size and start Mann. More minutes for Morris! Please! The guy fills the stat sheet with 9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal in 19 minutes.
To give him more time on the floor, move Morris to the four position. He played it in high school. See if it works for a game or two. It's not like we're on a roll and in danger of breaking our winning streak.
I don't call players out on the Blog. But anyone can see that the guys who are 0 for 7 and 1 for 8 need to sit, and the guys that are 2 for 2 need to play.
