Winning a lot and getting exposure through making the NCAA tournament showcases talent just fine, even in the most boring offensive systems. Ask Wiscy players like John Leuer or Frank Kaminsky.

Some people might call Wisconsin BB boring....I call it a thing of beauty.

I don't disagree with any of that. I just hate that slow, ugly offense. I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

He can be a huge get for whoever picks him up. Arrived at Duke as a 17 year old, still 19 I believe with a lot of room to grow. Huge upside.

Big guy with a lot of tools. Tough to develop in a Duke program where you aren't going to get much PT. Would be a huge get, but there will be many suitors.

This kid was hyped up at Duke big time and never looked the part when he was in the game his Freshman year. Could be the system but when I saw him play he didn't look remotely close to a top 100 player IMO. Semi Ojeyele would tell you its the system....

I'm going to hold out hope he stays. A no nonsense coach could do him and his potential some good.

Agreed. I'd hate to see him leave then go on to become a 1st round draft pick. I'm just assuming he leaves due to the fact that we cleared our bench at the end of the Boise State game and he still didn't get in.

So far, that's all we have seen. You're right in that a change in coach and scheme could do him some good, but his motor, as previously mentioned, leaves a lot to be desired. Can a scheme or coach force him to be aggressive or is that something that can't be taught?
