2nd most shot attempts and only making 41%. Also shot selection at the end of games.

2nd most shot attempts on a limited offensive team. His wild shot is as good as anyone else's wild shot.

Ignorance at its finest. Ride the horse til it dies…. That horse died two months ago. It died because it didn’t have any more more legs to stand on.

I love it when a player can change my opinion in a positive way. Xavier Johnson has definitely done that this year. He looks like a player at the end of the year that figured out how to get his game to mesh with the  offense in a way that has made our team more competitive. I would once like to see the line-up of Rob, XJ, Galloway, Race and TJD start the game and the second half and see how we looked. 

He has taken over the role of number two option and we've been better for it.

Yep.  XJ is a me first player.  Just ignore the fact the has the all time best single season assist rate in program history.

Kind of difficult for me to believe that a "coach" could more thoroughly ignore statistics that make his hypothesis look so silly, but there's one in every crowd, I guess. 🙄

Probably never going to be a low post scorer but has length & skill.

Not sure about motor comments 

No interest in low post scoring anyway.

Outside of a cut, Oreb, or dribble drive.... those are the only points you need in the post, in the modern era. Rim runner/rim defender, Stretch 4 w/length, and 3 guards.

We’re out. CMW wasn’t at the game. Other coaches were.

We will never be competitive again 🙄🙄🙄🙄

It's not about one player.  It's about relationship building with coaches across the state, even those that are not playing in the finals.  Let's say 50 other coaches from across the state were in attendance.  Maybe one of them has a hot shot player coming up from middle school next season.  Maybe another has a kid that is transferring in with Top 100 potential.  It's an opportunity wasted, 

Michael Lewis wasn't there to watch Xavier Booker.  He was there to be seen by high school coaches that may have players he'll be interested in.

CMW- Xavier, I'm going to be on vacation with my wife this week and will miss your state championship game.... I'll be watching from the hotel TV, good luck and go kick butt

XB- thanks coach! Have fun on your trip! Talk to you when you get back!

 

This isn't difficult.

Well, I doubt it was a vacation planned too far in advance considering the goal would have been that IU was playing this weekend.  

Look.  We're not going to change each other's minds.  But, from my point of view, State Championship Day is one that every college coach in the entire state, from JUCO to NAIA all the way through DIII, DII, and DI should mark on their calendar each year.  Don't go and it is an opportunity missed.
