I remember watching some of the games early in the season thinking Coburn was going to be a 6th man or a third scoring option for this team. Someone with decent length and can knock down the 3 ball with consistency. However, he has gotten zero playing time. Does anyone know why?

He was pretty bad when he played.  But I agree.  Got to give him some minute and see if he can improve.  Mathis provides zero shooting and you cant play posh, mathis and wusu at the same time anymore.  The def does not have to respect any of these guys shooting.  Its killing us.

Why is Stef Smith in the dog house?

He probably doesn't practice much.  He's not going to be a game changer

Ive seen coarch bark hard at him during games multiple times.  Im going to say its because he isnt great on defense.  Coach would rather play mathis who provides 0 offense then a guy like smith who can shoot but lacks on the def end.

NY Post had an article today on the under performance of the transfers. Point was made that the fast pace St, John's plays is not a fit for Coburn. Max Hooper 2.0

What defense is Mathis playing? We're still giving up 85+ a game. I'll take Smith and take my chances with his defense.

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHHAHA.  Agreed.  Ive had enough of Mathis.  He has 0 confidence in his shot.  Not a good attribute for a guard.

Routinely gets lost on defense. Unfortunately, he is one of the few potential outside threats so we need him
