So, teams will let him shoot long threes. If he were deadly from out there they'd have to come out to play him, and when they did, if his handle was better, could blow by them for layups. As it is, his moves to the hoop are suspect and he relies too much on that crappy floater.

As the 4th or fifth option he had some amazing putback slams, some garbage points, and some wide open looks when teams collapsed to stop Ponds.

You described Figgy perfectly and opponents know his game so not having other legitimate scorers makes it easier to defend against this team as the Friars showed last night even with their pathetic showing. I disagree with coach Anderson in his playing Rutherford and Dunn at the same time and question the non utilization of Steere when Roberts is struggling. He has made some judgment mistakes with his use of players like inserting Heron with under a minute to play. Everyone in the arena knew he would chuck up a shot whether it was good or bad. If anything he should have inserted him with under 4 minutes to get less anxious to make THE play.

I agree.

It's silly not to put steere in, everyone seen what the pc bigs did, maybe if steere was in the missed ft putback jam never happens. That must have been a humbling experience for Greg, but what could he do against a bigger, stronger player.
How.about putting steere in coach, what's to lose? After Saturday we'll be 1-5 anyways...if anything it gives him experience.

The putback slam was on Champaignie.

Coach Anderson isnt playing Steere for a reason. I trust him. Something is going on in practice or outside of basketball where he is not holding up his end of the bargain.

Simply block out. Maybe, we get an over-the-back call. No one put a body on the player. They all were flat-footed and watched.

What disgusted me most last night, was Heron came out for the second half, score a quick bucket, then a 4 point play when he made a 3 and drew a foul. I was thinking maybe a 15 point second half from him if he could stay on the court. I didn't even utter those words, when he committed 2 very quick fouls, perhaps the first was phantom, the second a charge and his big 2nd half was done as quickly as it started.

It's hard ot figure out what he is thinking when he charges to the basket into a crowd - it's as if he doesn't see the guy he is about to run over.

He hasn’t regressed. He’s trying to do all the scoring because nobody else can. Simple as that. Kid is excellent I think this talk of regression is nonsense.

Are you his mom? Your boy went 4-17. Tell him he's got to let the game come to him. Tell him is your wide open from 27 feet it's because your opponent has been told to let you shoot from there. Also tell him that 10 foot floater is a low % shot. All that has nothing to do with your son's teammates Mrs. Figueroa. By the way, he is a really nice kid. You raised a nice young man.
