I saw this pop up and was reminded we have another good PG prospect coming in. Regardless of how this season goes, next year we are going to have 4 guys that can handle the ball. If the wings can develop their shot and any big can rebound/defend then the team is set up for at least a nice 2 year run.
2017 Recruiting: - PG Makai Ashton-Langford (UConn Offer)
Thanks for the info. I thought it was odd he drove left so often but didn't finish with his left hand. Put it this way, it's jarring when you notice tendencies in a highlight video of all things. I'm not sure if that "unorthodox" and unpredictable finishing will work at college level, but if he can go back to left hand just in case, then that's great.
if you watch basketball, a lot of players do what he does... our past pgs have done that and adams does now
People piss and moan about that. EOD, the only thing that matters is ball through hoop.
Yes, I referenced Adams in my first post on this thread. The nature of events is that we'd never know if he'd shoot higher or lower by finishing with his left hand. All that matters is that Adams shot 46% on 2s last year, which is certainly good enough.
If you look at the second half (ish) of the season when he started playing more, he actually shot in the mid-30s which is pretty bad--especially for one who doesn't shoot many threes at all. He still improved in other facets of the game, don't get me wrong, but he didn't adjust well to increased pressure from the d.
He just tried an embarassing righty scoop layup from the left side under duress (but not fouled that I could see). I think he airballed it.
That kind of play will impact your fg% lol.
Not actually looking too bad after the 9 TO in the first 7 minutes-ha!
Yeah he made 2 runners immediately after I posted this, naturally (but both from the right side).
