I never thought that Johnson should ever be looked at as more than the third or fourth option for scoring, unfortunately he was put in a position where he was either the main option or he just took it upon himself to shoot, perhaps for lack of other options, but regardless he has never been seen as a scoring guard, it's just that this team has no identity, the up' and down performance of players each game is maddening, the constant bad shooting is beyond comprehension , it's just appears that the entire program is so broken it's beyond any game by game fix, a total makeover is necessary at this point with the hope that something of a once proud program can still be saved, maybe we are already too far past any relevance but unless Reggie is gone or he wins the Maac and saves himself change is necessary. We are all dying a slow death with Canisius basketball it would seem!

The griffs actually have players that can hit he 3. But the problem is the wrong guys keep taking the 3's. Some might not to hear this but Malik who takes the 2nd most 3's on the team is 26-101 - 25.7%. He definitely shouldn't be taking that many 3's. Harried is similar, he's taken the 3rd most 3's on the team 22-86 -25.6%. If this doesn't change nothing will. Henderson, Hitchon and Brandon should take the most 3's. Should be a no brainer. They are the only 3 over 30%. Brandon 39-123 - 31.7% not bad, 2-10 last game was though was bad. Henderson 26-77 - 33.8% decent. Hitchon 17-52 - 32.7% decent. So Johnson has made the same amount of 3's as Henderson 26 but has taken 24 more 3 pt shots. Johnson has made 9 more 3's then Hitchon taking 49 more 3's, so about 20% 9-49. If they do not play as a team and give the ball to the open man and not care who is the teams leading scorer. They will be lucky to win one more game this year. Then out first game of the tournament. Hitchon was the best 3 point shooter last year also % wise. Made 26 of 56 so 46.4% last year from 3. You would think that they would have doubled his 3 point attempts this year. Nope let a freshmen come in a just fire away. Harried 22-86 - 25.6%. He has taken 34 more 3's than Hitchon and has only made 5 more. If the me me me continues, the losses will too. Go Griffs!

Do our coaches know this? I’m not kidding, the way we’ve been playing this is a relevant question.

How many times do I have to point out the problem with our offense. The problem is that we don't have a big guy that can play down low. As a result the offense doesn't generate enough open shots. No wonder the three pt. shooting is so bad. The other concern I have is our defense. Yesterday, in NU's win over Monmouth, the guy who scored some 30 pts against the Griffs, came up with 12 vs the Eagles. And of course teams that have good big men generally have a field day against the Griffs. For all the posters who want a coaching change, there are no guarantees. Things could get lots worse. I still believe landing a couple of good recruits is a better option. Go Griffs!!!

G Papas is a guard that was covered by Malik as well as other guards. Papas got 32 pts off the bench for Monmouth. He was 7-11 from 3, nice defense guys, 9-10 from the line. That's 30 of his 32 pts right there. Niagara is all guards and they seem to play better defense it seems.
