Tang needs to spend the offseason working on ballhandling -- both the players ability to take care of the ball and his coaching ball security.

Or just recruit better ball handlers
Yeah idk. It seems like such a fixable thing, but we weren’t able to fix it all year so maybe just go the dude route.

Maybe. It depends on who we recruit and if we can quit beating ourselves with an unacceputable turnover rate. The conference is going to get any easier. Hopefully our university president stays the eff out of the program next year.

If we would have been 275th in turning the ball over we probably win 3 or 4 more games. As in wouldn’t even need to be in the top 250. Unreal

Going to have to hit a grand slam in the portal for that to be true

Camo and Dai Dai probably start at guard, unless Castillo (sp?) is really good. Both are way to sloopy with the ball. Cam is unexcuseably careless for an upperclassman with in oncourt experience. It doesn't matter who we bring in if those two don't get much better handling the ball.

Carter's issue is that he is asked to do too much because there aren't enough scorers. No one complained about or even noticed carelessness from him last season because he was usually the 4th or 5th scoring option. We don't need ball handling practice, we need scorers

I think Keyontae showed that you don't really need a "grand slam",  (unless you think that portal haul was a "grand slam", I really have no idea what it means other than it sounds like we need multiple portal stars)

Well if we a have a Nowell already on the roster then he can probably hit a ground rule double

Anytime you can get a high-major all conference performer in the portal you’ve hit a home run. Johnson was a grand slam.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Yep. Not to say we haven’t been frustrated at times. I still don’t think he should really ever dribble the ball more than three times on a catch, but he’s improved across the board in advanced stats, including TO % with much higher minutes and usage rates.
