Loss to BU left me sick, but as one who has been very critical of Lampley here I must say that he is starting to get it. I don't think he had any forced shots and while he still dribbles into lane trouble and gets stuck there, I think he is starting to figure it out. Handle still too loose and lack of height will always cause trap problems, but I still see a light. Leon makes fewer errors but now seems to be trying too few things, but that's ok too if it means that he is starting to see what not to do. We lost mostly because #5 guy can't make layups. He must have missed more shots this season than any big in SPC annals. Also the fact that there is no payoff when the post gets fed must be frustrating for the guards as well. He's a good kid, tries to play, but lacks any athleticism.

Agree about Lampley. Talk about player development and I'd cite Darrell as a good example. IMO he's gone from an often out of control, shoot first, pass if necessary type of player, to one who is trying to play the role of a team player. The bad news that we have to live with, is that his turnovers will probably increase (see Boston U game ). Hard to have too many turnovers when hoisting up all those shots. Think both the staff and Darrell deserve some credit. Dunne's decision to give Darrell the ball with only 4 seconds left was also the right coaching move. Agree with Cindy that both the team and staff looked better.

Two caveats. First, I'm not quite ready to call DL's transformation complete.Time will tell. Second, while he is squaring up better and making some shots he is still a low percentage shooter and one who has difficulty scoring when he penetrates. Not just referring to his missed open layup against Boston U ( shit happens) but that's the way it's been all year. The question, in my mind, is what are the staff's thoughts on a point guard.

Noticed that Iona signed Machado, the kid I liked, even though they have an overabundance of guards. Still no question in my mind that we need Machado's type of player to play point no matter how Nick and Darrell develop. However, if no such player becomes available Dunne might try to go next year with the guards we have. A mistake in my mind. Guess it all depends on what is out there. We still have holes to fill.
