They absolutely want him to shoot open 3's. He's shot it pretty well overall this year. It's how they help make space for Lamb on the post. He's usually wide open after the opposition sends a double.Jeez, Davis sure wants to think he's a stretch-4. Becker needs to tell him he's a shrink-4 and keep him in the paint.
Because redshirting at this level is mostly stupid and when the first sign of injuries or need for bodies hits you're burning them. See: Kpedi, Ra, Patella, Bailey, Powell, Isaiah also mine and other people's thoughts on the matter: Stony Brook vs Vermont 1/8/20 7pm ESPN+Anyone ever wonder why in the hell Beckett is not red-shirted ?? You can see the kid is very good and will not get much playing time year. I would ask him if he would consider this move. Believe me it would help him and the team for four more years....Wonder if the idea has been brought up to the Staff ??
Yes, with obvious caveat being unless that player is Duncan Demuth, then can feel free to ask away. Or, we can just ask the question a different way- why did UVM get a waiver for him to play right away?New rule: stop asking why someone isn't redshirted
Sure, that's fair. And as far as they knew until what like August or September, he was slated to sit out anyway? That waiver came pretty late didn't it? I don't have all the details but the way I understand it the waiver process wasn't a matter of "we need to to play right away" than it was the NCAA basically ruling all players who were told by their previous programs to look elsewhere would be eligible for such waiver and UVM let Demuth apply for it because there wasn't a true downside (the downside was he would sit out as they planned). Well, he got the waiver and the coaching staff absolutely just went and did the wrong thing by redshirting a player they could actually use and vastly overstating those they wanted to keep eligible of making up for the production of Powell.Yes, with obvious caveat being unless that player is Duncan Demuth, then can feel free to ask away.

If there was ever a kid to take the transfer red shirt to learn the program/get stronger and work on overall game he would be the poster boy for it.
Now, hopefully he scores 16pts against Hartford on Saturday.
