Walking Boot of Doom

(2016) SG Bruce Brown to Miami

Recommended Posts

And we had trouble scoring. Playing a big front court means giving up a more traditional shooter and we couldn't afford it. 

Moving Noah into a role where he could take more perimeter shots would have helped. He shot lights out better than anyone not named Yogi.

On a limited sample. And he didn't have a midrange shot, just a good long shot. I don't know that it would have helped enough.

 

In any event, injuries and transfers made sure we never found out.

Cause Fischer was here and healthy for so long..... He only played in a few games and then decided to leave. Plus even though Noah had a decent 3 point shot he didn't the midrange game of Deron Davis and Fischer wasn't Bryant. 

Luke Fischer and Noah Vonleh both could shoot the midrange shot. Interchangeable bigs with the ability to stretch one to the 3 point line. Yes he left before B1G play but had played or was available in every regular season game leading up to the B1G season.

I think the problem there was the lack of people able to shoot. Will did awful and Yogi was nowhere near where he is now.

Fischer didn't miss a regular season game due to injury!!! He missed the exhibitions and left before the first B1G game. The reason they didnt play together had NOTHING to do with Luke's preseason injury that was healed before the start of the season. It was bc the Coach refused to play the two together. This isnt me sitting here and trying to make up a bs reason to hate our coach. Its me stating that Deron Davis playing alongside TB is a legitimate question mark bc we've had the opportunity for something similar and Crean opted against it.

 

To get back on topic:Bruce Brown is an awesome player and I hope we land him

  The insistence on playing Hollowell 30 minutes a game may have had an effect on Fishers decision..

It is only a question mark because you are using the wrong comparison. A Bryant/Davis combo is much more comparable to the Watford/Zeller combo than Vonleh/Fischer. Vonleh and Fischer were interchangeable but not complimentary players, Watford and Zeller were complimentary players like Bryant and Davis would be. The real question is if Brown, Davis and Kegler all commit, would Davis and Kegler both be on the floor at the same time along with Brown and Bryant? That amount of size would truly be unprecedented in recent years.

They better be able to or else Kegler won't commit to IU.

Fair point. I never thought of it this way. Nice way of putting it.
