    "'This was a gutty performance from our guys,' head coach Dave Paulsen said. 'I thought we buckled down defensively and answered a lot of the challenges they put before us. We were depleted with Jamal going down with an injury and Xavier struggling with his knees. We got a great boost from Jason Douglas-Stanley. I'm really proud of our guys and hopefully this give us some momentum heading into the A-10 Tournament.'"

    He had 6 points on 2 of 6 shooting. That’s not “going off.”

    I dont think any one is blaming anyone. Its just unfortunate for JDS.

    The tenor of the conversation is that he wasn’t given a chance to show what he can do. Except he was.

    Im not here to defend JDS or say that he is the 2nd coming but how was he given a chance to show what he can do when he averaged under 5 minutes and took a total of 28 shots the entire season and missed ~1 shot a game..He was not given the opportunity to get into a groove or even really a slump. It’s obvious it wasn’t the right fit here but I really find it hard to see how he was given an opportunity to showcase his skills.

    Can I just save you from the response . . . two years of practice.

    I agree with you that he wasn't a fit. Time will tell what he can become and if it was the system, level of competition, coaching, etc.

    Seeing him in person in the small Fordham gym, I did notice the scissor kick on one of his misses. Good to see him hit a couple though.

    He doesn't do a good job of setting his feet coming off a screen before rising for the shot so he's always a bit off balance. His arc is also unpredictable...sometimes he has a good arc, sometimes it's really flat.
