Our point guards had 0 points vs. AU, not counting anything CA did while at the point. Our PG's need to be somewhat of a threat from the outside or drive to the hoop. One or the other would help open up the offense.
Several players seem to be playing it too safe.
I mentioned something similar in the American game thread. There were times when the guards had a chance to drive to the basket or - more regularly - take a pretty open mid-range jumper. But they seem to lack confidence, or are instructed to get the ball down low before anything else.
If the ball handlers could pop a few mid-ranger jumpers off the dribble, it would really open things up. And if they were confident enough to take the ball to the basket (as Kaspar has proven he can do), then our offensive options would be that much greater.
