Phweeew! Glad he's back. For a minute there I was afraid we were going to have
to hold "student body tryouts."In all seriousness though,
glad to see him back.DH:I think that Rogers will help
noticeably with perimeter defense.
There are a lot of really good players on this team, and getting Rogers back
just add's one more. They need to keep working on some of their deficiencies,
like the perimeter defense, and I think by tourney time they will be ready to
win some games.
Good to see Rogers back. He is an essential "glue" guy that adds
experience and maturity. Much needed. Would love to see what this team can do
with everyone healthy.
I agree that Rogers is a difference maker coming off the bench, if he can get
back to 100% this team could make a good push to end the season. With Davies
playing better and Hortsock playing well, we need the guard play to step up.
Zylstra has been inconsistent, and Carlino plays out of control at times.
Winder and Harrison play better man-to-man defense but need to be more
consistent of offense. We give up a lot of threes to good teams because we are
playing a lot of zone; so far against the good teams they are shooting lights
out against the zone defense.
Rogers is a difference maker. As the 6th man, he is the spark off the bench.
He is capable of putting together quick scoring runs. I believe the
score would have been closer against St Mary's if Rogers was in the game,
especially since it was a high scoring affair. Who knows, maybe it could have
turned into a BYU win.With Carlino, Rogers, and Abouo performing
very well beyond the arc; the inside game should continue to open up giving more
opportunities to Hartsock and Davies.It's great to see Davies
performing at his potential.The biggest opportunity I see for the
Cougars is defending the perimeter. We continue to get exposed when the other
team has a solid 3 point shooter. We need someone to step up and play solid
perimeter defense. (Does anyone want to see if Emery is available to come back?)
