Tylon Smith went for 0 points, 6 assists, 2 rebs, 5 turnovers, and 5 fouls in 31 minutes against UConn.
That game convinced you that he is the backup we need?
I could give you a similar stat line on Boat, Bazz and Kemba during their careers. You have to see the talent behind one game. His body of work for two years not counted? This wasn't the kid's best game but he showed he could play.
What do think TSam's state line would be if he were on Southern playing head ups with a healthy Boat. And how many fouls would Boat draw on TSam over the course of a game. We know there would be more than 5 turnovers and no assists. And what would the stat line for the two walk ons with scholarships be against our front line
If you can't see that getting a legit D-2 point or JC for 10 minutes a game is better than watching TSam, and Sam Jr bounce the ball for thirty seconds before turning it over, there is not much I can say. But, if Ollie doesn't come up with someone next year other than Adams....
We are not going to win a lot of games unless Adams is as good as Rose as a freshman.
