Unfortunate reality but we have had a number of setbacks. The main issues to me are below. Some out of our control and others that are hard to explain. These are the difference from us being a top 5 team and the current team we are. We are really a top 25 team at best. I hate to say it, but we seem to have 3 guys on our entire team who are putting up numbers game in game out. Dotson, Lawson and Ochai. Vick and Garrett are mercurial players on offense. At least Garrett gives us exceptional D every night.
Doke - Expected to be a 14 and 8 guy game in game out. Out for the season…again.
Silvio - Expected to be a 10 and 10 guy. Out for most of the season if not the entire season with eligibility issues…again.
Grimes - Expected to be a dynamic scorer. Top 10 talent. Potential lottery pick before he put on a jersey. Has had three good games all year and at least 5 games where he may as well not have played. Maybe the most disappointing guy in years. Selby level disappointment.
Vick - Has been what we all know him to be. A guy who can be incredible and a guy who can be flat out awful on and off the court. Unfortunately we have seen a bit to much of the “bad” Vick even though he won us a few games by himself early in the year.
Dotson - To me, he has exceeded expectations. Great ball handler. Great FT shooter down the stretch. Could be a Jayhawk to remember.
Ochai - Goes without saying that he has been incredible once the redshirt was pulled.
Lawson - Averaging nearly 20 and 10 a game as expected. Our best player by far.
KJ - Expected to be a contributor and has been a non factor.
Garrett - A defensive specialist who has been much better than expected on offense lately. I still think he could win us a game in March.
Moore - Expected to be a contributor and has been a non factor.
Big Dave - Not sure what we thought. I think we all assumed he would ride the bench behind Doke and Silvio. Now they are gone and he still rides the bench.
Mitch - Pretty much the exact same as Dave.
