Taylor has BEEN trash. He's comes off as a genuinely stupid person who is probably nearly uncoachable. Don't have any faith in him these next two seasons. We got Gibbs and Robinson next year, though, so we should be good. And we have that top 10 recruit coming in in 2012 so after Gibbs bounces hopefully that kid can do work, cause I have no faith in putting the team on Taylors back.
Robinson played 27 minutes and shot 5-8, seems pretty routine and actually a solid shooting day. McGhee 18 minutes, 1 shot, which was a miss, got to the line once and went 1-2, and only TWO rebounds .
All good I have faith he will show up in the big dance. I hated the dude for his first 3 seasons but he really impressed me this year.
See, it's not the OFFENSE that we missed with Robinson & McGhee on the bench, it was their rebounding. UCONN out rebounded us in the 2nd half and had WAY too many 2nd chance points. If we have McGhee and Robinson playing, we probably have that game locked up.
Next year won't be too bad [I know this year isn't over but still]. We have Woodall, Richardson & Taylor as JRs AND Gibbs & Robinson as Seniors. Along with, Zanna, Moore & Patterson as Sophomores.
I think the starting 5 should be: Gibbs, Robinson, Woodall, Zanna & Richardson. Then we have Taylor, Moore, Birch, Gilbert & Johnson off the bench.
I could see Birch & Gilbert working into the starting 5 by the end of the season.
