Re: Xavier Basketball
Teams aren't going to let Redford free until Martin or Davis can be 80% of the threat Redford is. There's not another player that can hurt you if after Semaj and Taylor.
I think the three point shot is important for Davis, he's got a good one. Same with Martin, although his shot has completely dried up. He needs some home town cookin I guess.
This team is putting pieces together slowly, but it needs to come together faster now down the stretch. The inside game is good enough to keep pace with the A10, the outside game is not. Davis and Martin need to average 9-10 a game and they are not doing that.
It can be hard to take shots away from Taylor and Semaj, but many of their shots become double and triple teamed, and that's where the 4 point leads never become 8 point leads and then end up losing the momentum.
Two points of regret are that Robinson and Philmore were never able to get comfortable shooting from the perimeter, as that shot is there 5-6 times a game and makes a team very difficult.
