Definitely seeing some cracks in Haith's coaching.
This year was going to be a challenge regardless, because of how many new players (freshmen and transfers) were coming in. Getting that group to play with cohesion is a challenge.
The injury issues of late have affected the rotation, and it's showing up in bad rotations and too many open perimeter looks. Communication out there MUST improve. I've seen guards get pinned by Oriakhi's man a lot on screens... and that cannot happen. He has to let those guys know his man is about to hit them.
It's not an easy task, but that's why Haith makes the big money.
Next year will be a huge test for Haith. How does he look without a premium point guard to drive the offense? They also are going to need JW3 and Keanu Post to make instant impacts in the rotation inside.
It sounds like Jordan Clarkson - the last transfer - is going to be a stud on the wing and might handle duties at the point. They're going to need it.
Smith is Cassel. Cassel is Grbac. Grbac is Bono. Smith is a bum! We traded for a bum!
