A case of forcing the game and not letting the game come to him.

Simon is a good athlete and good defender, we should be happy we have him.
I believe the staff's philosophy, which they pitch to recruits, is that as long as they do the job on defense they will have freedom on offense. While this may be painful at times, it's important that potential recruits believe they will be given a chance to showcase their game on both ends of the floor. Hopefully this increases our future talent level.

Go Redmen

He is the worst player on this team and should be on the bench.

Perhaps the worst starter, but who on the bench is better?

Lack of depth. The loss is a loss. We just don’t have the quality horses of a Duke. By this point we should have a legit 7 players.

Anyone clamoring for Simon to be on the bench might as well just say "I hope he transfers without penalty for his last season," because they are essentially the same thing. There are a ton of Cali schools that will let him start at guard.

Not sure where he fits in next season with Steere on board, but I think Simon should be our starting center for rest of year and staff should tell him not to venture beyond 8 feet in the half court game.

He can defend, rebound and shoot from mid range
He can't play the point or shoot 3's
He seems to be a good guy and a good teammate
If he plays within his abilities, he should play starter minutes

How many pnts does he blow a game missing bunny, 8?
Yeah he could be out starting center since we dont have a center to begin with.
I say next year it's bench or good bye.

Counter me if you want but that's how i feel.

I'm not going to counter how you feel. But I think we need him next season. Unfortunately for him and the team, we need him at PF. And he's not going to go for that.

Keita will never give us anything. And if you notice, people who've seen practice tell us that they are impressed with Wright, but there's never a peep about Caraher. The staff somehow can't find any real minutes for Roberts or Earlington. Unless Precious comes aboard, I'm not sure who starts over Simon.

Starters right now are Mack, Wright, Figgy, Steere, and ? So in my mind that ? needs to be Simon.
