    Hayward: one might say that like Kirilenko, even when not scoring, he "fills up a score sheet" with assists, rebounds, blocks, steals - but also with unforced turnovers, and if the league tracked it, might be leading in "4 point plays against." UT has matching rights next year. Who thinks they should exercise 'em? I'm not sure.

    Burke's another puzzle. Now "proven" he's not a good NBA shooter, tho' that can improve over a career, and seems to have regressed from his first 20 games. Is he avoiding banging in the lane? Can he play "big" enough against the taller, rangier PG's he's going to keep facing?

    Favors, Burks and Kanter def belong. Faves and Ennes even show signs of becoming effective together situationally at least.

    You have to wonder how long Burks' body can take what he's asking of it, but a great watch and how far he's come...

    Jumping on the dump Corbin bandwagon. Good guy, some players development, morale's stayed high, and a great asset - as someone's assistant. No real fire, always saying we need to improve "a little" no matter how things are stinking, etc.

    It's pretty optimistic to call Burke a "Rookie of the Year candidate".

    The point guard position should probably be switched for now. Diante Garrett is simply running the show better than Trey Burke at this point. I don't know if it is because Trey has hit the wall or if Diante is simply better suited to the NBA, but this position should be up for grabs next season. I love Trey Burke, but I feel more comfortable with Diante on the court. At least at this point.
