DePaul awful. What does one derive from a 99-54 win over a pathetic team? A needed boost in confidence, knowing there are teams who shouldnâ€™t be on the same floor. Not much else, but this is obvious:
— With his injured wrist, Terrence Williams is just a shadow of himself. Nary a shot in 16 minutes. Rick Pitino says heâ€™ll be healthy for the Providence game on Wednesday. Doubt that.
— Preston Knowles fearless and confident, needs to shoot and shoot some more. He doesnâ€™t think about the shot, just puts it up there, expecting the ball to go in.
— Jared Swopshire obviously hasnâ€™t been wearing those big shoes very long, clogging around like the neighborhood jogger. Trying not to look not cool while avoiding a sweat. Showing how good he can be only during unguarded and spontaneous action.
— Earl Clark will give up the ball in a split second when heâ€™s challenged, whether he be standing, dribbling, catching or passing. Donâ€™t mess with him, however, on those explosive bursts to the basket.
— From obscurity to starter, Reginald Delk provides some scoring potential while T-Will is unable to flick his wrist. He started at Mississippi State. Be surprised if he gets in the game against Providence.
— Samardo Samuels has a good mid-range shot, providing a much-needed option when his every shot on the block is being rammed down his throat. Jump, man, jump.
— T-Will needs to take care, no business being involved in major tumbles during practice.
