Congrats to Jeff Withey on his second straight alpha dog performance vs. San Jose St. -- that rare college triple double. It's a good thing he's playing like an All-American right now, because we haven't had any other consistent performers.
Scott's been pushing a sort-of quarterback controversy between EJ and Tharpe. Naadir didn't do himself any favors in the San Jose St. game, with his barrage of turnovers, bad shots, and defensive lapses. Elijah hit the jumper that broke us out of our terrible slump at the end, but overall he wasn't that great either. A strong quarterback wouldn't have allowed us to go to sleep offensively for 10 minutes.
This team needs more fire and personality in the backcourt. Jeff can't do it all. Self keeps trying to incite Elijah with his comments to the media, but so far, he seems content to stay on the margins rather than taking control.
Come on, EJ. If not now, when? If not you, who?
