Well it is midseason and we are 3-10. Not so great, but we did lose our last 2 games by a total of 5 points and have a winnable home game vs. Missouri State tonight.
I think it is worth the time to review our recruits and see if they are living up to expectations or not.
First up is PG Kevin Hummel
ATH 37(+1), SPD 82(+2), REB 47, DEF 49(+1), PER 55(+3), BH 86(+1) Pass 78(+2)
Hummel has gained 10 points in his cores, and had only Perimeter as high potential. His 24 WE is hurting him and he is redshirting. Nothing else to report, but I think he will be an upgrade at PG next season if he gains another 10 points and doesn't lose them all in the offseason.
Next is SG Phillip Pete 21.2 min/G, 40% FG, 42 3PT%, 1.5 reb, 2.0a, 2.3TO 6.9ppg.
ATH 61(+4), SPD 75(+7), Def 71(+5), PER 68(+1), BH 76(+6) Pass 64(+5)
Pete has gained 28 points while starting and his low Perimeter rating hasn't prevented him from shooting ok. I am actually pretty excited about his rapid improvement in speed and solid gains in BH/PA/ATH. He started with an F in Triangle, but has improved steadily and should be ready to breakout and average double figures in the second half.
SF William Macy 19mpg, 38% FG, 28% 3PT%, 2.8rpg, 1.1apg, 6.5ppg
ATH 65(+5), SPD 67(+3), REB 44(+2) DEF 65(+4) BLK 32(+1), LP 52(+2) PER 49(+4), BH 25, Pass 60(+5)
Macy is still just a potentially good player. His results have not been very good, but his 26 point gain in the cores is 3rd on the team, and he has so much farther to grow with only BH as a low potential area. He is also my smartest player, picking up the IQ the fastest with a C/C-/C in my 3 sets, when he started with 2 F's and a D.
I'll try to report on my big men tomorrow. Overall though, I am still feeling positive, but I am worried that this season will kill my already dismal D+ prestige. Macy is the guy that is so key to the team and figuring out his practice schedule is tough, as SFs are always the trickiest.
