Austin Rivers working out at Shooting Guard in lieu of Gordon per Times-Picayune

quote:

``Eric’s out so I kind of have to move over,’’ Rivers said. ``I’ve been playing (shooting guard) most of my life anyway, so I’m naturally comfortable at it.’’

In the scrimmage, Rivers said he tried to attack offensively, especially after Williams' opting to use a 14-second shot clock instead of the regulation 24-second.


quote:

``Our guard play is average at best right now and we’ve got to get better,’’ Williams said. ``I think the defense is where we can probably make our mark right away. We have so many new guys and they don’t know each other in our schemes.’’

Williams said Vasquez’s is going have to improve his pick-and-roll defense and Rivers as expected has had some lapses trying to learn his system.

``You know young guys have those lapses and he’s no different,’’ Williams said. ``The younger guys usually mess up your plays more because they don’t know the languages and the spacing. But he’s doing fine; he works at it. He and Greivis compete at everything and that’s good. We’ve got healthy competition in our gym.’’

I'm really valuing Rivers a lot more these days. With talk of Gordon also playing PG some, having these two playing both the 1 and 2 will help our versatility a lot.

Rivers may end up with a lot more playing time early on than I originally thought.

I look forward to them reporting this on Friday or whenever.

3 day news.

Yes, I know the website is updated continually. I'm being catty. Shoot me.

They're providing more information right now than any other outlet. Thanks for the ice cream, though.

Ha.

Did you try it, the ice cream?

TP - The guys do good work. Always have. Their medium is not one for good analysis, but that's not on them. My issue is with the geniuses with the checkbooks.

I actually didn't get to try it. I'm in Baton Rouge, so it's just too far out of the way. I may make it down there in a couple of weeks to meet some friends who are coming into town, though.
