Call it a wash.
Like I said in another thread, the problem with EJ has a lot to do with depth. If KU had any real depth, they would have enough confidence to hook him from the game when he's having an off night. That goes with almost any KU player. It scared the shit out of me in conference play how few minutes the bench was getting.
EJ may have been frustrating, but he was a game-changer. That's not KU basketball, to be so dependent on one guy to make or break your team. At least not the good KU squads.
