    Herb can create his own shot. Is a great distributor of the ball down low. Plays hard defense. And he's the best athlete on the team. If you'll pardon the hyperbole, I would say Herb not only has the most room for improvement on the team, but he could become the most improved player in the entire country next year.
    I see what was the best player on the team at times this past year in Mack. What I don't see with Herb is anything close to a reliable shooting touch. Frankly, he was a bricklayer last year. FWIW, I'm high on Herb, but until he develops a decent shot it doesn't matter how good he is at creating shots if they rarely go in. Bottom line in basketball is putting it in the hoop. I think Herb is great on defense and in transition, but he needs a midrange game to become a much better player.

    I think CNO will help both players, but my fear with Jones is it's really hard to go from bricklayer to good shooter in a short time, if ever.

    The thing about Herb, is if you watch him shoot early in his freshman season, he had pretty decent shooting touch. Somebody tried to retool his form and it looks awful now. Iím thinking that this staff will try to get him back to where it used to be.

    I just want to know which coach changed his form, and why in the world was it changed to that.

    If herb develops an outside shot the sky is the limit for him. He can already get to the rim at will with the defender knowing he wont pull up and drain one on him. He has to get better finishing around the rim too, obviously, because he was terrible at that this year. Analytics dictate that around the rim and 3s are the way best way to score. You just see flashes of ability with herb that nobody on the team comes close to. True NBA talent. But the flashes are so brief...
