    Perkins huge in that game. His D is seriously underrated, too.

    lots of great things to say about his game today, but i particularly enjoyed watching him repeatedly take his time and then calmly break the press.

    Agreed. The jumper that he hit to tie the game to some major stones.

    - got my vote for gu player of the game
    - in vegas he passed and passed, let others score, but today rui and Tillie could not get it done, and he steps up and scores 16,......because he can and it was necessary this game.

    Hell of a game today, just keep getting better and better. 10 points, 8 assists, 100% leadership.

    JP had a hell of a game. Every heard of "God of the gaps?" Well, he is the guard of the gaps IMO. He fills every role that we need him to, and adapts on the fly.

    Josh Perkins is the most essential player on the team. No other player can quite fill his roll. Everyone else, even the stars, have a player who could fill their position if they get in foul trouble or are injured.

    Dude is a stud, and running this team so smoothly. It’s a luxury to watch a guy like him play the position.

    Josh has steadily improved his play since January. His decision making now is off the charts good and he has almost totally eliminated "off" plays.

    Boy, I was a JP doubter all year; just seemed prone to too many bonehead plays. But what a year he's had and has REALLY locked down his role for the team. He looks to be having so much fun out there. Those stats are EXACTLY what we need this time of year - feed the weapons and when they're struggling, do your thing. Congrats to Josh!!

    Josh exudes confidence. He was the coolest cat on the court... never fazed.

    Yep. He has impressively continued to make some nice plays while reigning in the turnovers. I’m so impressed with his decision making and game control.

    and so is Coach Few.

    Took time out of the post-game pressor to single-out Perkins, not once, but twice when asked about how great Rui, Norvell, et al were...

    "Hey, who gets lost in all this is Josh Perkins, he has been...well....terrific for us since that last home game vs St Marys. He has flash to his game, and he values it, yet puts aside to continue making winning plays for us time and time again. I mean 8 assists, 2 TO's this game. Really really managing the game, finding guys in the right spots, getting us set, just been great..."

    Josh had another great game against Ohio State.

    He has really improved over the course of this season. He has a lot of talented players around him. He does a great job of feeding them when and where they are in the best position to score.

    honestly, given Josh's knack for managing the game the latter part of this season, and making smart plays/passes consistently, he's on an upward trend.

    IF he decides to stay next season, work on a floater, finishing in the lane, getting a bit stronger, he has a serious shot at finding a Jason Kidd type role at the next level.

    All Josh really needs is to be a threat in the lane, and to develop a floater. I feel if he spent an entire off-season doing it, he could fine a niche in the League.

    His ball handling is blue chip, vision, passing, even shooting (although since his bangs have fallen in his eyes, his shot hasn't been the same, no joke). Just needs to be a threat to score on the dribble-drive, and he's something very special. Rare.

    Joel Berry is considered a late 2nd Round lock to NBA. I think Perkins is better than him. Similar, but Perkins has more "game". Joel just more consistent scorer.

    I selected him as my GUnit because of his steady constant play. He is a star now.

    Congratulations to Perkins. He played one of the best games of his career at a critical time yesterday.
    On the other hand, "appreciation" threads directed at specific players always cause me to feel a bit uneasy. My new car has 6 cylinders, and while I greatly appreciate the work that cylinder #3 has been doing for me lately, I am pretty sure I would be screwed if any of the other 5 weren't working along side the much-appreciated #3. And so, like my kids, I appreciate all of my cylinders - and GU players - equally.

    Go Bulldogs!

    Not bad for a SG Josh has been great and is really pushing this team to another level. Really has found when to pick his spots. The team is clicking and his play is the major reason. It has been fun to watch.

    I really hope he chooses to come back next year; Josh, Zach, Rui, Cory, Brandon, Larsen, etc. is a top 5 team.

    Larsen.

    Needs to get that knee fixed in the off-season. A hopeful suggestion, not a diagnosis.

    He has 'tweaked' it twice this season. No structural damage, yet gotta wonder about scar tissue given the severity of his injury the first go around.

    He definitely favors it.

    I feel he has a chance to be special, yet when he can barely cut, pivot, or launch of his repaired knee, it will hold him back.

    I hope he receives the best treatment and advice this off-season. Based on previous issues, and what I've seen day to day, it needs more than just rest -- a minor clean up but still...a guy his size and style needs both knees to be healthy.
