I attended the game, and loved what I saw. I, personally, think that
Carlino--while possessing a lot of nice skills--is too reckless for my liking.
He forces things too often. I'd rather see either Cusick or Calvert start
at point (Calvert REALLY impressed me with his passing and court vision), with
Carlino coming off the bench to spark things and push the ball. I think
they're going to compete very well in the WCC this year. Haws is the best
player on the court (including Davies), IMHO. Davies needs to go a lot harder
to the hole with his physical skills.Go Cougars!
CougFaninTX,Calvert is leaving after the season.
@ CougFaninTXWord has it that Calvert is leaning toward a mission
next year, as is Emery. I agree that Carlino hasn't looked good--poor shot
selection, not enough assists, too much penetration when the bigs are more
capable of finishing, etc. He is playing good defense, however, and he has so
much talent. It's early, he'll be okay.
I think we'll see a lot of games with Davies and Haws at 20 plus points
each. I'm betting Davies has more games where he gets a double double than
games where he doesn't. Carlino's play was disappointing tonight.I'm still trying to figure out where Agustin and Delgado will fit
into the rotation. And I'm very impressed with Calvert. He has a bright
future. Is he going on a mission or playing straight through?
Fun to see the Cougars play. Hope the score is a preview of things to come.
