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.;)

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.

It doesn't take a ton of analysis to figure out that you are likely to lose if the guy that takes the majority of your 3s per game is hitting them at 15% in conference play, and 19% overall. Add to that the loss of Lovett, and I guess that's why Mullin isn't surprised at this putrid start. Not a word from anyone as to how Shamorie went from a pretty good shooter as a freshman to the lowest % shooter on this shooting challenged team. If he had not regressed big time, this team would be 2 and 3 at worst in conference. This to me is the only explanation for how a team that replaced the much ridiculed Ellison and Mussini with 2 legitimate Big East players is under-performing to this level. Sophomore jinx? Injury? I can't say, but I do know that going from 37% to 15% is hard to fathom and may not have been seen before.

It would have great to make the final four after supposedly being the last team invited but they would have meant playing MSU with Magic who humiliated Penn.

These comments have me thinking.

I've been to a bunch of red white pregames. If they are reflective of our game attending fan base, outside of students, the average age of those attending daily mass might be younger. Our attendance is slightly better, though.


Hey, I resemble that remark.
