Need a minimum of 20 minutes, with 25 ideal. How does he go from Freshman of the Year in the Big Sky, hitting 38% of his three-point attempts, leading scorer on the team to hitting 20% this year? And I can't remember his last attempt that was even close.Bottom line is foul trouble is holding us back and we need to play much more aggressive defense if we want to continue winning games. To do that, we need more minutes from out 7th guy or we need to find someone else who can give us 10.

He is definitely discouraged. But so is Sammy regularly, and DJ and Kwame joined him tonight. Andy seams so very upbeat, yet the players are often down. I don't think it is his motivational ability, but perhaps instead is a lack of confidence in Andy.
They were also discouraged tonight because they did not have an answer to the Irvine zone. As much as we love the big three's ability to score, the fact is that none of the three have quick feet. The two Irvine players at the top of the key were able to go all of the way out to the three point line, yet the big three were not able to go around them. Great game plan by Irvine, with no answer by Fullerton, as we could not dump the ball into the paint behind those two defenders.
