I don't know if the school has a sports psychologist on staff, but if not they need to get one

I think you hit the nail on the head. Especially where Clark is concerned {but others also.} Seems Clark vacillates from over confidence to total lack thereof. There appears to be no middle ground with him. Even with minimal minutes last year, this showed. Sometimes he acts like he MUST do it all, not trusting his teammates (& rightfully so at times); and when others seem to step up, instead of trusting them, he acts/feels like he BETTER get his also. I do not think he is being selfish, I "think" he just wants to win so bad and be a part of it. He seems to not see that there are other/more/better ways to go about it. I am most definitely NOT applying for the fore mentioned job; but we need to get Clark straighten out for this year and NEXT. I HOPE his issues are NOT selfishness, because we NEED him to be a team player and to use ALL his skills!

Disappointing loss in that they were so close to pulling off an upset against one of the top two teams in the league. I have to keep reminding myself that they are starting 4 freshman/redshirt freshme

We were an inch from the turning point. I'm not frustrated because our goal is to get shaped up for the AE playoffs and I am confident that we will make the final 8. Hank, Rizzutto, and de Sousa

So, um Malachi De Sousa. He might be pretty good. We're a different team when Hank can stay on the floor and Rizzuto can score. I honestly think Clark is in his own head a little much the la

Most difficult thing for me to rationalize is his continued drives against 2 or 3 kids on him instead of pulling it out...also the deep stepback fadeaways. These are not good takes, but he keeps taking them. 

 

I think you are right on the trust thing...I'm not sure he trusts his teammates. I think it would be good to deemphasize him a little bit for a few games, have him sit and watch and see that there are other players on the court that can ball and he doesn't have to do it all himself and then plug him back in. I'm sure Brown will figure it out but don't run this kid off...he's talented and by all accounts a solid kid.

Campbell is there physically and mentally. Does everything correctly 95% of the time, but just isn’t good at putting that ball in the hoop.

Totally agree! But, when he does hit a 3 on those rare occasions, I feel like I'm 8 years' old and just won a stuffed animal out of those arcade machines with the claw. Best feeling ever!

You all are just a bunch of haters...what if...follow me here...I told you that Devonte is hitting 36% of his 3's this year...he hit only 14% last year. What if I told you he's ranked #18 in the AE shooting the 3?

I'd say play him! I am, and have been, in the Campbell fan club.

The damn cross court passing needs to stop. It’s ridiculous 

Ummm.  That was a skip pass against the zone.  For the most part, the correct choice to breakdown and overloaded side.  Problem was the height of the pass.

Remember we are only fans watching from the crowd or on TV. I am not sure I have ever seen Brown get angry at Clark for some of the forced drives. We do not know what coach is instructing him to do. He may be instructed to attack and make something happen.

I think early in the season Clark had to do a lot. Now, the freshman have grown, his role has changed and he has to adjust. I actually thought he showed great patience getting that shot to tie. I thought he was going to hoist a three before driving for the layup.
