The problem with playing Caraher is that you sacrifice something with the pressure defense which is right now the only offense SJU has. If he shot in the high forties from the floor and in the high thirties from three he should be out there but if the staff don't feel he is capable of that Williams should get those minutes because of his quickness on the defensive end.

In the great Redmen.com tradition of shoulding on one another, I think we should have one person at wing who works with Earlington to develop a set of pick and roll tandem offensive sets. It means whoever it is learning to shoot in rhythm and take advantage of Earlington learning two additional low post offensive moves, each with a counter move for when defenses overplay and the two of them forcing half court defenses to adapt to us. While we're at it, it would be nice to have a Don Nelson type trailer on the fast break who can hit a three.

Agree issue with Caraher is not on offense. Smarts/effort there both ways. But has been getting destroyed defensively. We don't just lose a little bit on the pressure, but as the individual talent level on opposition has increased teams are targeting him in the half court. Unfortunately an easy guy to mismatch via switch because he can't really guard small or big. Sort of a tweener. X really exploited.

He really has to provide something besides solid play offensively to offset that, hasn't been there unfortunately. Hopefully develops, staff seems to like him and easy guy to root for. If he could get 3% up into even mid 30s it's a different analysis, imagine that's the potential staff sees and wants to see if they can get out of him more regularly. Would be a difference maker for 15-20 per game.

Good to see Big John still around. He is a Big East legend.

I know we're 0-2, but does this seem odd to anyone but me?

Let’s just go out and beat them/. We are capable. Will certainly need to see some Steere tomorrow even if for a big body and fouls, with their big guy. He’s excellent.

That first Big East win is crucial, especially for teams projected to be at the bottom of the league. The longer it goes, the tighter players get. Confidence is lost. it doesn't help that their are no free squares out there. Every win has to be earned, especially for a team that can't have an off night on defense. Our guys need that win soon.
