No Rogers played well thus got extended minutes. A true point guard who can deliver the ball so scorers can get good shots.

This is a faulty assumption. You could just as easily point out McNally, Peay, and Socoby's horrible offensive nights as a result of Roger's play if you're going to go that route. McLemore has put up 20+ with Bernal at the point before.

McNally and Peay can be eliminate from your thought process because Maine's offense never put Rogers in a position for post entries and in Socoby's case he had a number of good shots that he did not make and Mclemore scored a career high with Rogers having 9 assists. Rogers based on the passes he had should have been in the 12-15 range with assists. Rogers ability to hit players in the shooting pocket coming off screens is why I feel he needs to have more minutes and if you add some opportunities within your offense for him to make post entries the bigs will score more.

Peay did not miss a shot all night.

So are you saying that it's the players fault......or the coaches.......or neither? Maybe the fans fault??? :roll:

I think the point trying to be made is.......was Peay and McNally's horrible offensive night because the guards, or specifically the point guard, did not get the ball into them? Each only got three touches on the ball all night.

Or was it because the ball only went to McLemore and Socoby?

Jeff I know at times you are off the wall but what do the fans have to do with post entries? From my perspective the wings in Maines offense make most of the post entries and I have not seen Owes,Socoby or Mclemore very skilled in doing that. Rogers has that ability but the coaches have not, based on games seen, had the point as the person who enters the ball to the post. Hope this clarify.

Allsports fan my previous post probably answers your question based on my perspective. Owes had 15 and he did not create, off the dribble, all of his points
