    Willis does not play defense well. He is a liability defensively when he is out there.

    Monk still plays his AAU style, and it has been problematic for last few weeks. He is in free-fall on draft boards.

    I said in the prediction thread, this team can not beat teams by 20+ points. They haven't done it since January. It's not in their DNA.

    The only joke I see is the comment you just made.

    I agree but he is trying to compensate by being a weak side shot blocker and hitting the boards.

    You keep thinking they were better at the beginning of the year, and you will be wrong. This team is better in every area from the beginning of the year. Monk scored 47 points and it still took a last second shot to win that day. If Monk puts up 47 now on someone it wouldn't even be close no matter who they are playing.
    Carolina would have beaten NKU by 25+.

    He's missing shots and now everyone acts like he is just some overrated AAU player, but fail to realize that while missing his shots the past month or so he has stepped his game up defensively and isn't taking the bad shots he was at the beginning of the year. I don't want to hear the Malik Monk AAU crap. You know who else played AAU? Every single division 1 college basketball player.

    It's no secret that when Drew McDonald was in high school and even his frosh year at NKU he wasn't in the best shape. Kudos to him for changing that this year. He played 36 minutes last night and was working HARD. I specifically watched him to see how he would do when UK got the board and took off. Drew SPRINTED and then had to bang down low with Bam and Humprhies. Kid worked his prodigious rear end off and I couldn't be happier for it as a NKU fan.

    Yes, he struggled offensively but he's not scoring much against that front line down low.

    His threat to shoot from the outside actually opened it up for Carson to put Willis under the basket for entry passes and easy looks.

    36 minutes against that type of size and speed says a lot about #34.

    If Carson can just add a couple of things to his offensive game he can be POY in the league. He already has a nice spin move that goes to the rim. If can use that same spin move in the lane and get a 10 to 12 footer he'll score more. If he can use the combo of broad shoulders and jumping ability along with a decent jump hook he'll score more.

    Kid had a really strong first year.
