And offensively.  He's not a great shooter.

I can live with his offensive game. He’s explosive around the rim, is a good passer and has pretty good feel. He’s been pretty bad on defense compared to what I expected. He’ll probably still go pro because the NBA seems to be all about potential nowadays.

Oh, no doubt in my mind he's gone.  But I think he's a guy that would benefit from another year. 

KD was ready to make the jump...Mitchell isn't, IMO

He leaves a lot to be desired defensively.

Teams are going to be concerned with the shooting. 

Defense they won't care about because he's super athletic with good size and you can teach guys like that how to play team defense. But in this day a guy like him who can't shoot the 3 is a bit of a liability in the NBA. Even if his defense improves.

It is kind of fascinating how the personality of the team seems a lot different under Terry. Suddenly we are this offensive team who gives up 50% shooting to A&M Commerce.

Yeah and it’s hard to complain much after tonight but the defense seems to be heading in the wrong direction.

Typically not the style you want to play in the tournament as defense can be a lot more consistent game to game than hot shooting. We'll also have to see how it goes against top quality competition in conference. I'd feel better if the defense was consistent and offense built off of the defense.

We have let Rice, TAMU Commerce, and Louisiana score in the 70s in regulation since Beard was suspended.  Those are the level of teams that would have scored in the 50s (or maybe even less for Rice and TAMU Commerce) against us with the way we played defense last year and the first part of this year with Beard as head coach.

The last two games have had fun highlights, but the overall results leave me feeling Debbie Downer about future trajectory with Terry vs. with Beard.
