[MBB] Game #8: 11/29/17 - 7:00pm - vs Colgate

Recommended Posts

I would like to see Clark and Foster get some more minutes. If only to give Stire, Cremo and Nichols a little breather.

Foster is having a tough time picking up the system on both ends. Think the staff would like to get more minutes out of him, it's just tough right now. He's coming along, should be good to go by at least conference play and that's when it's money time. Nice having Costa be able to come off the bench and drain threes, along with all of the other pieces.

I'm not sure I see what you guys see with Foster. Not sure why he doesn't get minutes but he doesn't seem like a foul machine and to me he seems to score at will when he's in. Frankly, I love the kids play. Again, not sure why I'm seeing something entirely different from all ya'll. To me, he's a more athletic Travis Charles. Charles will outwork you but Foster, at least in my observations, will spin around you and dunk on you if given the chance.

I like him too and he's going to be good. He's helped us already and as he gets more comfortable with what we're doing he'll help us even more. I think the tough part of our packed early schedule is that we haven't had stretches at home where we can practice and work on things. Hopefully that'll change in December. I like a lot of our bench in addition to Foster.

Depends how you look at it, right now he'd be at 6.5 fouls per 40 minutes, only other guy over 5 in 40 mins would be Stire at 5.2. Flip side is Foster leads the team in rebounds per 40 (12.6, Stire 10.3) and already leads the team in blocks per game with the minutes he's playing.

The D end is pretty simple, we play M2M..just don't foul and don't let your guy abuse you. It's the O end that he isn't up to speed yet, gets lost on a lot of the sets. Think he'll be a really fun player to watch for us once he figures out where to be and when.

ZLK I think he has a problem on "D". He is very poor hedging and switching on screens often leaving people open for threes or he fails to hedge and get back to his man.

Yeah that's definitely been his issue on D so far, gets lost too often.
