Cindy - Excellent analysis of Spitler's role/contribution. True knack for presenting in an objective, non-confrontational manner.

Maybe I/others can learn from you. Ooops, did that sound polarizing?

Re: Jajk IMO Darrell played his best game of the season. When some posters talk of player development I would say that Darrell has come a long way this year. From a player who hoisted up too many shots, many of them ill advised to a player who, at least, for now is beginning to play within the team concept and being much more selective in his shooting. When Darrell takes time to "square up" he becomes a much better shooter. If anyone has noticed Darrell shooting percentage has been slowely creeping up from the mid-twenties to the low thirties. He is shooting and playing better.

Much of this I credit both Darrell and the staff. Anyone who has been to the games should have observed how supportive Coach Dunne has been of Darrell. Taking more of a teaching and discussion approach, I think that it is begginning to pay dividends. Darrell's playing much, much better.

However, to answer some of Jajk's observations, yes Darrell was on the floor as we had that 25-3 run but he was also on the floor when that lead dwindled. Darrell played well but let's not make it more than it is. Add to that , that we had no problem with Cansius' press, I fail to understand the implication that Darrell would have helped in that regard. By the way Nick Leon handles the ball very well. This idea that only Darrell can handle is not accurate. Darrell is the better handler of the two but the difference is not that great. Plus, as Cindy pointed out Nick is one of the top free throw shooters in the country.

So yes, let's each have an opinion. Jajk obviously likes Darrell's game and thinks that he could be a big time contributor. I think differently. I posted well over a month ago that Nick and Darrell are like #1 and #1A. The better player for me is Leon. Nick has had some wonderful games that often are overlooked. And yes he's had some poor one's also. Darrell, early on, had some very poor performances but recently his positive contributions have been growing rapidly. My only disagreement witrh Jajk is that I've seen enough of Darrell to have an opinion on his game. I see Darrell as a contributor who is capable of an outstanding performance but not at the level some are hoping for. He and Nick are a decent 1/2 punch but in terms of becoming an upper tier MAAC team, I have serious doubts. I see both as important contributors but I wouldn't be closed minded on making the #1 position at least a priority to see what's out there.
