Courtney was getting destroyed inside today. Del Piero held his own. Most every player has to alter their shot because of him and having someone that does that is huge. He is getting more aggresive every game and is becoming a good SEC center. After seeing him last year i don't think anyone could have expected what he's done this year. Don't know how anybody could speak bad about him. This team would be in horrible shape without him, especially with the poor play of johnny obryant lately. You can tell he lacks some of the skills you only get from years and years of playing, but its obvious he's worked his butt off over the past year to get to this point and deserves nothing but respect.
Amen to that!
If Andrew could learn to set a better pick and quickly roll back to low post, we'll instantly be better on offense. Then plant himself low post on defense, with his hands straight up like a 9ft statue, he'd alter all shots, get charge calls and just get in the darned way.
He's only gonna get better, and it's incredible how far he's come in a year (yes that's right, in only a year!).
