Subject: Siena thoughts

Siena loss shows both the promise of the future and yhe obstacles still to be overcome. Bacon's aggressiveness on"O" and Jenkins' shooting both are the promise. Woeful second half defense by all the guards and Lampley's return to wild child status with the ball and Leon's indecision and poor decisions were setbacks. First half offense by Orta showed how important his poor season was for SPC and the need to establish an option there. Who? I haven't a clue. I fear that with all my frustration with Todd this year, we will be watching next year and saying geez where's Sowell. I hope the coach is right with his recruits this year because I really need to see 10-12 wins next year to not be too depressed all winter.

Figgy, your observations couldn't be more accurate or on target. Sometimes we can get caught up in game by game analysis. The big picture indicates that both Jenkins and Bacon will be the nucleus of any team of the future. Leon and Lampley are OK but not the stuff of prime time players. I still hold hopes for Gooding as his playing the #4 sort of sacrificed his game for the team. Still needs that 8-10' jumper but his defense and athleticism (eye opening dunk against Siena) still leave him as a future possibility.

With regard to the Staff and Coach I'll simply say that I have more confidence in their performamnce next year than I do in some of our players. Not trying to bad mouth the current squad. Many are hard workers and have not thrown in the towel. However, talent is talent and our needs are obvious.

You are dead on; we will miss Todd big time next year, especially his rebounding.

If "experts" like us recognize how important replacing his board play will be, you can bet Dunne and his staff realize they MUST get Bacon some help on the Boards.

Of course, that is easier said than done.

you will be better without sowell. he is too much of a liability on defense if he has to leave the paint. anytime that josh duell is going by someone like they aren't even there, you know there is a problem. i thought that spc looked better without him on the floor on offense as well. got some back-cuts and can run some different plays than just having him push people around underneath. bacon, lampley and jenkins all look like decent maac level players, so you have something to build around.
