One of the nicest surprises of the 2011-12 season was Chris Crockett's improvement from the prior three seasons. I give Smith credit for staying with him when seemingly everyone else had written Crockett off. However, I do not see the same potential with Kowalski although Smith has given him plenty of opportunities. He's a scrappy player and good defender, but cannot score at all. As for Green, he improved on offense this season, but is still much too tentative so he needs to find a way to strenthen his overall Game in the off-season. Green, and for that matter, Daniels and Springwater, are superior athletes, who have not yet put it all together on the college basketball court. Obviously, they are still "projects" and the coaching staff will be working with them closely in the off-season to see whether they can improve like Crockett did last season.
