By the numbers, it looks like he’s regressed a bit. But it’s early.

Unless he has been injured or sick, he is actually playing less minutes than he did for a Big East team at SJU.   Sometimes a bigger opportunity exposes players as not being the stars they think they are.


I hadn't read this post when I made the same point about Dunn in the other thread.

Heard he nicked himself shaving and his father wants him to quit the team.

Two former Johnnies on TV tonight:

Manhattan (Josh Roberts) vs. Iona at 7 on ESPNU
Kent State vs. Akron (Trimble) on CBSSN at 8

Have to give Josh credit for improving his foul shooting by leaps & bounds - 80% on 16 for 20. Maybe CMA should have him come tutor our guys...

His withdrawal after a minor knee injury was symptomatic of the Lavin and Mullin years - very thin benches along with no height.

Referencing GWill and Dunn, we all 
need to realize they had defined roles and playing time here .  They had played 2 years under CMA and learned whatever system it is .   Their contributions were, along with Roberts , Earlington , McGriff and even Moore and Cole were fully implemented .  And , with few exceptions that Group along with Champ , Posh , Wusu finished 4 th in BE with a 10-9 record . Which we might have difficulty reaching this season .  Point being , whatever they are doing elsewhere is irrelevant to what they did and might have contributed this year. Had they returned.           Lastly , I think we can accurately assess that the incoming group is not of the caliber of the outgoing group ,   And , I think would have had a better record besides .
