. Good point , NC. But , considering how poorly the rest of the Team, excluding Figgy’s and Heron , shoot the Ball, 32 percent from 3 qualifies as a Sharpshooter . And , remember Trimble didn’t get a lot of minutes for the most part . I think Mullin got serviceable results from Trimble and he was a pretty good standstill shooter when he was open . You might be right about him landing at Akron for next season . He took a fair amount of abuse here in his first year regarding his conditioning but , he did work hard to get in shape for last season . Good luck to him .

He wasn't a good enough shooter for someone who was basically a "catch-and-shoot" player. He probably dribbled the ball about 10 times and made one or two moves to the basket in two years. If he shot the ball at a 40% clip or higher as a standstill shooter, then he would've been valuable for this team.

I'll give him more props on the defensive end as he battled and banged, and at times, held his own, with bigger foes last season.

Seton Hall ranked #18 for out battle this weekend. If we can grab a road win at prov that sets up a huge game at MSG where we can get to 3-3 in conference and also take down another highly ranked opponent

He certainly had a strength/physical advantage over Caraher, but I so much appreciate Caraher’s ability and willingness to work without the ball. Before Heron delivered a nice pass for the and 1 late last game, our guys had missed him on more than one occasion. Even with whatever lack of athleticism he has he does his best to impact the game in other areas even when his shot isn’t falling.

We played much better at the garden then we do elsewhere this year. We can beat SHU on Saturday.

I agree that Caraher is a much better all around offensive player than Trimble showed with us. I was always waiting for Bryan to fake the three and put the ball on the floor but it never happened. He didn't fit CMA's style of play in any event and I think transferring was best move for him. I wish him well and it will be interesting to see if at lower level of play and with a year of coaching he becomes a more well rounded player for Akron next year.

Dunn named to Big East honor roll today for his effort last week (avg 18.5 pts., 8.5 R, 4.5 A and 3 steals per game). Well deserved!

. True , to an extent but , Trimble was a off the Bench player in his time here , not a Starter . As NC Johnnie said , he shot about 32 percent over 2 years taking around 150 shots . Currently , only the top 50 3 point shooters in all of Div 1 basketball shoot 40 percent on 3 ‘s . On our current team Figgy shoots 36 percent and Heron 35 percent on 3’s . No one else breaks 30 percent . Dunn shoots 21 percent but , we know he’s in there for other things , not his shooting ! The point was Trimble as a sub , a role he played for us and would continue to play , would have made some contribution shooting , even at 32 percent . It’s a what if comment , nothing more . BTW, only Howard on Marquette and Ballock on Creighton crack the top 50 among BE players . Syracuse has 2 Players , Buddy Boeheim and Elkins , I think his name is , in the top 50 of 3 point shooters . A more compelling point is that Recruiting 3 point shooters has to be a major target for Anderson moving forward and not just 1 player but, as many as you can get . Kids who have shooting touch , in addition to the other skills , are a premium .

Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard said bone scan on Sandro Mamukelashvili came back clean. Slightly ahead of schedule. Thinks return Feb. 1 against Xavier is a realistic expectation. #shbb

Figueroa, Heron and Dunn (as you noted with Dunn) all bring far more to the table than Trimble. A standstill, designated, or "catch-and-shoot" shooters has to be able shot better than 32% from deep. If strictly shooting the ball is your specified role in an offense, then those numbers needed to be raised. Maybe those numbers would've been higher had he returned. I don't know. None of have an idea.

I liked what Trimble gave us when he was throwing his body around and fighting low post players a season ago. I also would like to wish him the best at Akron. But I had no problem with him moving on, as I feel many on our current team brings more to the table and/or have a better upside than him.
