    Do not buy the wall that much. Just a little over a month ago Holtmann said that he was one of the freshman that he was not very concerned about because he was so well conditioned. Maybe trying to do things that he is not capable of or playing out of control might be examples of Exhibit A.

    I mean, whatever you want to call it. Overall, he was playing really well up until that second Illinois game where he went 0-6. Since then he's been dreadful.

    At this point it has to be mental. I've never seen a player fall off a cliff so abruptly. He went from being one of our best players to one of the worst I've ever seen almost overnight. It's crazy. Hopefully they get it fixed in the offseason, because he showed flashes of being a really, really good player.

    I don't think the shoulder ever fully healed.

    Not to say some of this isn't just bad basketball- his over-dribbling kills the offense.

    Had some really good offensive games against Nebraska, Rutgers, and Penn State. He was playing within the offense, taking what was given him. Then, I don't remember if it was the IU game or the U of I game, but he started forcing things. I remember watching whatever game that was and thinking that coach must have told him they needed more from him on the offensive end. Whether it was coach or Luther taking it upon himself, his focus needs to return to being the defensive stopper.

    if he tightens up his handle and develops his get-to-the-basket game, luther is going to explode. projects to have a major freshman-to-sophomore transition. really love the outlook of our 2-guards (other being washington, of course). complement each other very well.

    muhammad's handle and decision-making are a major obstacle, though. i don't trust him when the ball is in his hands.

    I trust him when his mind is made up to attack, but diagnosing or facillitating absolutely not

    Ball security is his biggest flaw by far and that can get better with a lot of practice and understanding his role in how the Offense works.

    He just needs to focus on being the best defensive player in college basketball, which I think he could, right now and let his offense come to him. Similar to the path that David Lighty was on here. He turned out just fine.
