This team doesn't have enough shooters.You need 2 guys on the court at all times who can hit a 3.I don't know if we have 2 guys on the team who can consistently hit 3's.Welage and Scruggs are the only ones

It is tough to watch this team. I am not sure many of Steele's touted bona fides, his years at Mack's elbow, his reputation as a "good whiteboard guy," and, most commonly cited, his status as a known quantity capable of keeping the current players and grad commits in the fold, are panning out. We are going to learn a great deal about coach Steele during the remainder of the season. Can he improve these flawed players? Can he get them to play unselfishly? Can he get them to run a half-court offense that is vaguely identifiable? He ought not be given multiple seasons to learn on the job. Being on the brink of consistency among the elites is fleeting. If there are no signs of life by season's end, it is time to find someone who can do the job well. Today's recruits are committed to the now. If a school becomes irrelevant for even a season or two, a DePaul-like future awaits. The decline of their once nationally respected program ought to serve as a cautionary tale.
