Re: '17 IL PG - Nico Johnson

Once again, I don't know why we're recruiting another '17 PG, but this kid looks tremendous on tape. I wonder why he doesn't have more offers. On tape, he looks better than Fatts. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the jump shot where he leans a little forward rather than going up straight. But, ...

I would like to see Dowtin get more time at PG. He is a much better defensive player (Jarvis is a liability on D), he turns it over less, shoots better from the outside and better from the line. Jarvis is better at penetrating. I don't put Jarvis' poor performance over the entire season to date on ...

Re: Game 17: Massachusetts, Sunday Jan 15, 2:30pm NBCSN

I think Dowtin might look a little slow, especially when he has the ball. When he is dribbling, he is kind of hunched over. A little strange. But if you watch him run without the ball, he's moving pretty quickly.

One of Dan's comments after the game that concerned me was, "We were flat and I'm not sure why. We didn't attack the game with any ferocity.". Is it possible that these kids are tuning Dan out? This happens often with an intense, screamer type of coach.
