When the guards are on for this team, they are one of the best teams in the SEC. It's not the Forwards that make this team, it's the guards. If the guards arent playing well, it allows the defenses to pack it in and make it tough to get the ball in the post. The Tigers won tonite b/c the guards played very well. But, the unfortunate aspect is that the guard play has been so inconsistent this year that Hud, Mitch, and Tack will prolly combine for only 4 points and 16 to's saturday. Some other observations about the game tonite: When Tack plays under control he is really good. I know I rip Tack b/c he's crazy with the rock, but when he's playing team ball and hitting shots, he's good. Neltner for some reason had his playing time reduced severely. I believe that Ross gives the Tigers quality mins and should have played more. Darnell Lazare might have had a career night tonite. I thought Brady coached a good game, but I have to disagree with leaving the horses in so late in a blowout. It's not leaving them in that was so bad, but the fact he took them out and then put them back in. Why was Tack on the floor at the end? Why were Bass and Hudson coming back into the game with about 6 mins left? That was def poor decision making by Brady. I dont understand why a few weeks ago he put Josh Maravich in with 4 seconds left in a game, but couldnt give him 3 or 4 mins today. But aside from that, the Tigers played as well as they have, Brady coached well. That being said, they played a pretty bad team. It was a game they should have won and did win. If they get good guard play like this against the likes of Fla, Bama or Miss st, they could steal one or two of those. Three of those at this point would be too much to ask for.
