    The coaches have gone out of their way to praise his offensive improvement, I’ll take them at their word versus a small sample size we have. I never understand the ease with which some posters tend to dismiss direct statements by coaches on specific aspects of a players ability based upon intense daily experience with them vs a few games we’ve seen.

    I understand where you're coming from.
    My counterpoint would be that the coaching staff sees him in practice, where he apparently shines and then overlook his performance in games.
    One of the better analogies I can come up with is a person can go to a target range and be an excellent marksman. But, when it comes to putting food on the table, they don't really get the job done in the real world when it counts. Which is fine, it is just a game after all.

    Your concept of “getting it done” is probably not aligned with coaching staff to be honest

    gonagasaurus,
    thank you, I hadn't thought of that, and I see what you mean.
    This is true of all players I would think, but perhaps it is more of an issue with big men? There are certainly lots of fake pumps and jumps under the basket, which is where the big men are likely to be.

    I was impressed by Bellarmine and would definitely be rooting for them to win a game in the tournament.
