I think he needs to do more than work on his shot. But we'll see

Jackson was injured a few weeks ago (back issues) - you may recall that he did not suit up for one of the Saturday games (don't remember if it was Princeton or Temple). I'm not sure how serious an injury but I think that's what gave Jake his opportunity a few weeks ago and he has taken advantage. Nothing wrong with that.

You said that Woods always guards the opponent’s best offensive guard. Is there any question who that is for Columbia?

Buried this year may not mean buried next year, even with no improvement. Wood does what Donahue does plus a lot more. If there isn’t that option, I think the mix of what we are willing to give up may change. So we may take the volume shooting of 3s if we can’t find other ways to stretch the defense.

I said the best offensive player--Cambridge certainly isn't a guard. But Smith presents matchup problems for everyone. That why we had Goodman on him. But Foreman is a good defensive player, he simply is not nearly as strong as Woods.

The thing Wood does that I didn’t see coming is the play around the basket. He’s scored on a number of offensive rebounds in traffic where he looks like Betley in there. He is playing much bigger this year. He’s not Woods in there, but he isn’t shrinking away either.

Maybe Woods can share his workout methods with AJ. He could use some bulking up.

Speaking of Wood...are there any other JUCO candidates in the pipeline?

Or is SD ditching that route now that the program is out of the gutter?

Agreed that Foreman isn’t as strong. To me that’s a different question, but totally agree.

In support of the points you are making about strength and what doesn’t show in the stats, statistically Woods is our weakest rebounder among the starters. But when the other team is at the line and we are playing small, he’s the guy in the spot by the basket rather than Betley or Foreman. Woods isn’t getting the rebounds, but he is clearing his guy out so others can get the rebound. Just more of the selfless stuff one of the other posters mentioned.

Rebounding on the defensive side is a team effort - everyone has their role. When Foreman is on the court his job is to clean up the loose rebounds, when he isn't then it's typically Woods but sometimes it's someone else - it looked like Silpe was cleaning up loose rebounds when he was on the court Saturday.

It's interesting to watch.

On offense the bigs were trying to tip back contested boards over to one of the backcourt guys.

  • Silver Maple Said:
We just have to hope that somebody emerges next season as a 3-pt threat.



I am pretty sure there are a couple guys already on this roster that have the ability to step up and hit 3s. Kuba worked his way into the rotation before getting hurt after just 1 game of action. I believe he provides shooting. I have also heard some pretty high praise for Ray Jerome and his outside acumen.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see one ore more of those guys hidden on the roster emerge next year.

I believe our large Mr. Wang will provide this kind of shooting next year as well.

Silpe made 2 against Yale but I don’t think that means he can all of a sudden shoot.
