"Go ahead!" "Shoot from the block U all night long."
I'm a little worried that Boylen is pinning so much hope on a kid who I'm not at
all convinced is a great shooter. He seems to sometimes hoist shots from the
three point line and talks proudly about it as if he were trying to send not so
subtle hints to the NBA. This kid simply needs to learn how to play basketball.
I was impressed with Hines level head in the Wyoming game and think that he
might actually be a better player. Plus--we have two seven footers that we don't
seem to be able to get the ball in to. I don't see anyone leaving them to go
guard a low thirties percentage 3 point shooter. BTW-I saw Nick Jacobsen play.
This kid is no Nick Jacobsen. Maybe someday....
As a UTE fan who was at the game against Wyoming, he was awful. STORY MUST HAVE
BEEN WRITTEN BEFORE.I wish we had Stewy. Utah State has improved
over the course of the year. Utah has gotten worse or stayed the same.Shawn Glover was a bright spot, plays within himself, stays in the offense.
He's no Damien Lillard... who scored 28 for the Wildcats against the Utes.
Yeah he can play sometimes, but most of all he is just annoying to watch.
I see many comments here from Ute fans that express the same thing I have come
to believe about Utah and Henderson this year --- Henderson shoots the way he
does because we have virtually NO OTHER ALTERNATIVES.We have no post
presence. Our tall guys can't muscle the ball in to the basket. Jace has
thrown up more airball 3-pointers than I care to remember in my lifetime.
Tillie is ineffective. Drca is slow and can't get around defenders. Brown has
developed an outside shot, but he is turnover prone when trying to drive the
ball. Glover is just now starting to develop as a shooter. Basically until
very recently, Henderson and to a lesser degree Brown have been the only
offensive threats that we have had.We need a point guard (recruited
a PG stud out of Kansas who will probably start next year). We need another
wing man shooting threat and our tall guys need to add weight, increase strength
and become true post position offensive threats.
Striking resemblence to that Lambert girl from UNM, anyone else agree??
RE: coot20And I'll take Marshall, so I guess we're even.
with MAFU. The play calling or lack thereof is the biggest issue I have with
the team this year.Boylen keeps saying how thick his playbook is yet
it seems to me when I see them play they only run one. That play seems to
involve a lot of standing around and waiting for the ball to come your way. If
they do happen to throw it into our bigs, those guys are at the top of the key
where they have no chance to do anything with it.I like Henderson -
he is a freshman for sure but I think he plays hard. I don't think he would
have ever seen any playing time with Majerus - he would have been benched the
second he threw up one of his long 3's.I don't agree with the above
poster about Carlon - he has developed an outside shot at least.I
think Foster's development is the biggest concern - he can play great defense
but hasn't seemed to learn anything when it comes to the offense. It probably
has something to do with his limited touches but they need to try and get him
He punched our guy so he fell over.
I'll take Haws over Henderson every day of the week
Maybe the starting lineup of Utah State does have a better percentage, they
still LOST. That is why we play games. Here is a stat for you mr stat man- UoU
vs USU 2009-2010 1-0!
What we need are most stories about The Ten Foot Wall.Ten Foot
Wall!Ten Foot Wall!Ten Foot Wall!
If only Glover had the kind of confidence that Marshall has he would be
unstoppable.Marshall is a firecracker and I'm glad he is a Runnin'
Ute. Keep it up!GO UTES! Shave those kitties down south!
hes a freshman everyone! Along with half the team! Give these guys some time!
How about everyone stop baggin' on this kid! Sheesh, grow up already!
Look at the Utes without him. Colorado State handled them. How many of those
shooters from BYU of USU are the focal point of the opposing teams defense?
Fredette. Thats is. Its much easier to shoot when your are the third of fourth
option. Its like shooting in practice. No one to guard you. Henderson's
percentage isn't very good, but you put him on a team with other options and it
becomes alot easier. The problem isn't Henderson, the problem is the lack of
help he has surrounding him.
Shot selection will hopefully come with maturity. Hopefully. Henderson is a very bright spot when compared to the absolute darkness of
Tavita. Why that guy is on the court is beyond me. Can anyone can think of a
worse starting PG in Utes history? A group of 30 year Utah fans couldn't...
I'm a ute fan and couldn't agree more. Horrible percentage. He puts up way too
many poor shots. The utes offense is anemic at best. As a side note, please
don't compare him to Jacobsen. Jacobsen was a great shooter and very clutch. He
used to light up the Cougs.
Oh you mean teams like Idaho, and BYU, and Seattle? Ha ha Utah state beat those
teams. Well they didn't play Seattle but enough said about that. Utah beat Utah
state way early in the year, Utah state is a totally different team AND Pooh
Williams, the best defender in the WAC was out. According to Sagarin's rankings.
Utah's schedule strength is 107. Utah state is 130. Hmmm don't see much
difference. Enjoy losing to BYU this week.
It is too bad Henderson didn't end up on the same team as Tavernari (as long as
the team they ended up on wasn't BYU or Utah). They would be kindred spirits,
jacking up threes and losing their cool together.
You live by the three you die by the three. The little guy can shoot it, but as
Norman Dale put it in Hoosiers, "there's more to the game than shooting." It
pains me when our two best offensive players (Henderson & Brown) shoot us out of
so many offensive possesions. I appreciate the renewed emphasis on
defense that Coach Boylen has instilled in the program, but our "NBA" offense is
craptacular. It revolves around one on one play, the high ball screen (which
takes Foster & Wash out of the paint/position), driving to the cup and kicking
it open shooters, etc. In a nutshell this system works with Lebron and Kobe,
but not Carlon Brown. The ball is one guys hands the majority of the time and
there is no movement by the other players. WYO knew what play/set we were
running all game long on Saturday.I hope that we can show up
tomorrow night and play with some passion and composure.Go Utes!BTW: Was it just me or did the 40th Anniversary video tribute to the
Huntsman Center just completely gloss over a certain coach that enjoyed wearing
that I'm there for the shot from the "U" and I hope he makes it. BUT I hope he
doesn't do it if the game is on the line cause I don't think he could get out of
the Huntsman center fast enough with Boylen coming after him!!! GO UTES!!
How many of those ballers you have stats of are True FRESHMEN. I think that is
what the article was trying to say. Not that he isn't better than all the people
you quoted stats from, but the simple fact he is a young true freshmen. I like
Boylen and I think if we give him time all Ute fans will like him.
First of all he is not 6'2....if anyone was to look at his shooting percentage
they'd realize how bad he is. I could score 15ppg for the Utes if i was shooting
20 times a game. Im a utah fan but i just dont think he's that good. On the
other hand, he's a lot better than Jace Tavita. I dont understand why Tavita
Yet Utah State failed to obtain the most important stat, the one that really
matters. Go back to crunching the percentage points and know that this year,
even all those that shot better percents failed where it counts. I hope your
percents are elevated when you play the teams you do year in, year out.
The last thing we need is for Henderson to shoot the ball more. The Utes would
be dramatically better if they improved their shot selection relative to the
game situation. How many times do you see them take a very early 3 pointer, a
shot you can get at almost any time in the shot clock, instead of making the
defense work and taking a higher percentage look at the basket? You can play
tough defense (which the Utes do a good deal of the time) but if you don't
rebound, take care of the ball and take good shots (none of which the Utes do
well) it doesn't matter how well you defend. You will give up too many
offensive opportunities for the other team and lose a majority of your games
What is most impressive about Henderson is he's the bright spot on a team with a
BYU by 15 tomorrow.
Henderson is a heck of a player, and I love that he gets under the skin of so
many people. Granted, if he weren't on my team, I'm sure I wouldn't care for
him, but he is on my team, so I love it.HIs shooting will improve,
and his shot selection has already improved over the season, along with his
defense. I look forward to seeing the Utes chalk up a "W"
tomorrowAs always a Boylen believer and proud of it.Go
he really has been the bright spot in what has been one of the more
disappointing seasons in recent memory. I just hope he can continue to improve,
because Carlon Brown was also a guy who's future looked bright, but has hit a
I think Henderson should be reigned in. Poor shot selection leads to a shooting
percentage under 40%. I can't believe that my Utes are putting their hopes each
game on a guy that shoots such a low percentage.
was handed to him during the Wyoming game. The poor kid couldn't do jack squat
during that game. He's over rated in my book!!!
38% from 3 is really impressive. So impressive that five guys on the Utah State
team shoot better than that and their whole team shoots four and a half percent
better. BYU has six guys who shoot better than 37.9% and as a team shoot three
and a half percent better.
Henderson's defense is keeping the other team in the game too. Keep up the good
