He handles the ball well for a freshman forward. We often put him in against the press and he only has a 12.4 turnover rate this year which is third on the team and better than the starting backcourt. He's a pretty good rebounder with the third best offensive rebounding rate on the team. Very small sample size and some of his misses have been wildly off, but he's made 42% from three so potential is there to turn into a volume shooter. He needs to learn to finish inside and become a better defender, but I think Reed looks decent for a three star freshman.

Roy Williams would not have done much better with the talent on this team.

I actually think they have the skill set, but not the IQ. And coaching does factor into that, but he's not out there making the plays for them.

I'm seeing a lot of missed opportunity on his part. But I'm just chalking this season up as a bad one overall and hoping next year's talent rises to the occasion.

I think his (Josh) turnover rate probably has more to do with his ability to pass over defenders. Against a press or trap it's a get out of jail free card. We have some guys that can't even see over a defender let alone pass over them. UH and Memphis really did a number on us in the first games against them. Trapped DDJ a lot and MAW (and others had some pick 6 TO's). Dan and Josh can go over the top of a trap or press.

This seems to have been a strategy for Wes to get that length. It has come at a slight degrade in scoring but they will figure it out over time.

Blaming the only halfway consistent player is the dumbest take Iíve seen on this board since bulldog.

Wes is the real problem.
Here is breaking news Wes Miller is not playing. If he was we would probably be better.
