Marshall, and to a little lesser extent, Q, are killing X with their selfish, low IQ play. One for ten from the field. If they were good shots, like Q's missed lab, that's fine, but his floaters and Marshall's off the dribble threes are the same as a turnover. Thankfully, everyone else is playing team ball, and their great defense is carrying the day....so far.
It's amazing how they continue to play like this game after game after game.
Instead being like Superman, they are X's version of Wile E Coyote.
You both do realize Q has 5 assists
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Yes he does and that's great and zero TO's although he dribbled off his leg at the end of the half.
He can be a very good playmaker but you can not deny that he sucks at shooting.
He is statistically the worst shooter on the team.
I said this earlier - if he more assists than shot attempts - X wins.
He should always be the 5th offensive option on every possession.
Pass first, shoot last.

On cue, Q and Marshall start the half with two non-traditional turnovers by clanking treys.

Oh goody,. Q shot another 3. They need to take a break and change the rims out. They are woefully bent.

Goodin and Marshall are now 1-13 from the field.
Notice how Nova didn't even bother guarding Goodin on that last 3.
Jay Wright has to be smiling he sees Marshall and Goodin hoist one up.

I agree he is not a good shooter and there are games he is horrible but a point frist job is get players in a position to score and his assists atttest to that. Of course he could give it to them at the rim and they still need to finish. Naji needs to pick up his game and Q would have even more assists.I understand Ah hate but I surprised at yours

Need to sub Hankins in for Jones or someone.

Booth drives and gets a call while at the other end Paul drives and bumped as he shoots and no call.

Breaking news....Marshall and Q are 1 for 14....Co-MVPS for Nova so far.

The only Achilles Heel with TS is his inability to rein them in.

I don't "hate" Goodin.
He can be and is a very good passer.
But he should not take the number of shots that he takes. Period.
Statistically he gives X the least chance of making points when he shoots as much as he does.
Looks at his 2 shooting and 3 pt shooting %'s
I go back to the SJU game - 7 assists and only 6 shot attempts.
As Goldilocks would say - that is just right.
