More Ahead, Stay Tuned

Morehead State was a yawner, from beginning to end. Couldn’t have gained much from the game. Warning signs remained plentiful.

— Not much passion at Freedom Hall these days, must be saving it for Big East games.

— Three-pointers are coming much too easily for the opposition, too difficult for the Cards.

— Derrick Caracter won’t last long in conference games. Need a couple of free throws against U of L? Take the ball inside.

— Juan Palacios playing his way back into shape; will be a while before he becomes a factor.

— Earl Clark playing tentatively, going through the motions much of the time.

— Edgar Sosa more concerned about his performance than the team’s.

— Will Scott is a poor-to-mediocre three-point shooter at present.

    An episodic dunk showtime will spark a crowd

    but “runs” are what ignite a crowd.

    Can’t sustain a run when you aren’t consistent at shooting–or at keeping the other team from scoring.

    Our team D in the first half was poor again–we allowed Morehead to shoot 47% and 44% from 3.

    We finally denied the 3 better in the second half and pressed effectively.

    But after we got to a 20 pt lead we got sloppy from that point out. So we basically beat them by the 23 points we were favored by.

    Jerry Smith looks better…Andre playing steady and under control.

    But Edgar still lost…big men still don’t rebound the way they should…

    Pitino announced pre-game that Padgett’s coming back was not because he was healed fully. David has basically just decided to play in pain, because apparently the risk of it re-fracturing now is just as great as if he waited another few wks.

    I think he realizes the team needs everyone possible–because right now it is not a good team, and would take a bad beating in the Big East this year.

    The introduction of Ali to the crowd was great– don’t remember them doing that before.
