Agree. Have yet to see anyone ask Mullin about Ponds’ shooting during post game pressers. Don’t get it. Biggest question to be asked.


What revealing thing would you expect him to say? He's shooting poorly, we hope he shoots better? He's a better shooter than he's been recently, he's in a slump, hopefully he comes out of it, and the sooner the better The good news is It doesn't seem to affect the rest of his game. Good for him.

Few games no big deal. Full season, I’m interested to know what a great shooter like Mullin thinks is the problem. Better than some of the questions asked.

Agree re: rest of his game.

While I like Simon for a lot of what he does , he is beginning to resemble Ellison in numbers of turnovers , missed dunks and bad passes . He is without question a better player but, for all his 4 tool skills , he needs to play better than he has . He is not a good shooter and is less than 70 percent from foul line , which is not good as he often is fouled after making a great move , resulting in a missed shot he should have made and then , misses the foul shot . So instead of a 3 Point score , we wind up with zero. That’s as bad as a turnover , when your trip is empty . Mussini , in my mind , is the most significant loss this year . He was a streaky shooter , which we desperately need and he could light it up , more times than not . Without Lovett, having Mussini , playing this year , we might have picked up wins against Seton Hall and Creighton . And , certainly Gtown . His loss was substantial , despite those who didn’t like his D or lack of Athleticism . He was a good and smart B.B. player and this team could have used his Skills . Against Nova , ponds and Simon have to get to the hoop a lot and not rely on outside shots . We likely need 35 or more from Simon and Ponds and 45- 50 from Ahmed, Clark and Owens to have a chance .The Bench ? Any thing positive , points, rebounds, blocks, steals is a Bonus .

Might have, could have........Mussini was not returning after his sophomore year period! It had nothing to do with Mullin or playing time. The key loss was losing Sima mid year. Totally not necessary given the Brown fiasco. Not having a center is the killer on this team.....as fragile as Sima was.....he would have played 20+ minutes and still be on Broadway instead of downtown Palookaville dodging steers and queers.;)
