They just are going to struggle to have answers on offense when playing teams that can take away Thomas. I'm sure someone can give a technical answer, but Thomas disappeared and there was no answer. That is what I expect in most games against ranked opponents this year.
LaQuentin Ross, I'm off that bandwagon real fast. Yikes, he is lost on both ends of the court. He looked like a promising swing man, now I'm not sure he will be able to start in his last two seasons.
Craft, Scott, Ross and Thompson will get lots of open jumpers like today
I think it is gonna be a long Big 10 season.
Both games they have lost this year Thomas has disappeared in the second half because he cannot get an open look. For this team to be good others have to make shots for Thomas to get shots.
Now I partially agree with you on the Ross part. Yes he does look lost at times but to make him and the offense effective I think him and Thomas need to be on the floor at the same time. When ross is out there they always have a man guarding him because he is a threat as opposed to Craft. With those two out there at the same time you have two guys who can make plays and create shots.
