LSU will have to prove they are an NCAA tourney team. Right now, they don't look like one. They are weak on fundamentals, & very inconsistent. JJ is a good recruiter but appears to be weak in game management & instilling player discipline.
JJ has done alot of good things and has overall been better than I expected. However, I agree...outside the second half against Butler and maybe pulling that press out of his arse last year against Seton Hall, I've never found myself thinking his bench coaching/gameplanning had much positive affect on games and at times felt it was negative.
I also agree that there's been a bit too much selfish and undisciplined play, and yesterday in particular it was more on the veterans.
Glad he finally sat some kids. Nothing gets their attention like playing time. But I'm thinking it should not have to come to that this far into the season.
NIT is my expectation for this club.
NCAA has been my expectation all along. This team has NCAA tourney level talent. They shoud be held accountable to that IMHO. Now we've just squeezed our margin of error down to next to nothing for the rest of the year thanks to this terrible and inexcuseable loss.
