OOC Johnnies and Big East Johnnies are two completely different teams. Never seem such a disparity. We have a seriously real chance of winning 1 or no games. Roberts has been neutralized, Champ does nothing now, Dunn gets blocked half his shots, Heron is absolutely awful, and LJ can't take over. We simply are not a Big East level program for the past 5 years it seems and we are now solidified with DePaul in the Big East basement. We are a bottom level program in a major conference. Yes we are rebuilding but there's something gravely wrong when you go 0-5+ to start every damn year.

Second game in row we’ve failed to defend the 3. Wide open looks.

If you're the Big East, at some point, you have to consider doing to us what the old Big East did to Temple football. No facilities, no fans showing up (forget the mandatory donation - we made student tickets free for on-campus home games, and the students still are not coming out, so I don't know if that can be rectified at all), bringing pocketknives to recruiting gunfights. What does this program have going for it? Is MSG that powerful a tool, that the Big East won't do anything?

And, if an established coach like Anderson, who plays a gimmick system (which I support) can't turn this around, what coach reasonably can (and I understand it's year 1, but I also believe that losing breeds more losing - I fear this year going totally out of control, maybe only 13 or 14 wins total, and it could be tough to recover from that)? Only way it could work would be to bring in a Norm Roberts-like, up-and-coming assistant coach, only to have this guy actually be good at the job. But then again, if he is, he's gone for greener pastures in 4 or 5 years, anyway, and the cycle would continue.

What Lavin did here was about the ceiling for this program, IMO. I felt that way at the time, and still do.

I think he has to be put in a good situation for things to work for him. He wasn't exactly the focal point on those Auburn teams, either.


As a person I feel like Heron is a leader, as a player he is lacking. And unfortunately he is being counted on to be 1 of our 2 leaders on a very undermanned team, and as a result is trying to do things on the court that he is simply not capable of doing. As aggravated as he makes me, I feel for the kid.

Not much to analyze but Heron and Figueroa have both pretty much stunk with a few pockets of what was expected or at least hoped for thrown in to tease. Overachieving by role players while your best and only experienced players flounder will only take you so far. Heron has been the worst player on the floor tonight and that is saying something.

Very interesting that Heron is on the bench.

Starting the second half, like the second half of the Butler game. 6 straight points in about a minute and a half. Don't think this has sustainability on the road, though.

He is doing much of what he did last year, bull driving with little or no finesse. He just did less of it because he saw the ball less.

I’ll always remember how this board blamed Shamorie for Herons own shortcomings.
