Fine, hero is a strong choice of words - but he was pretty flawless during the last 9 minutes of that game, which I thought would've bought him a little more latitude.
If you're so smart, why aren't you rich?
Seth had 4 turnovers, 0 assists in the final 12 minutes. Made a great move to get to the line to win the game, but

Completely disagree. You don't let 3-9 BC dictate whether or not you go small. You play your game and make them adjust. Period.
You're overrating those guys ability. If we're talking about guys you can dump it down to and let them work it'd be one thing. Instead we're talking about inconsistent, foul prone freshmen and James Padgett.
Just because our guys are bigger doesn't mean that we have some overwhelming advantage, particularly given how awful they are against this style defensively.
Agree with the spirit of your post, but I question how we'd do this?
Offensively the advantage becomes guys like Shaq and Chuck catching and throwing weight around on the blocks. Both struggled with double teams/swiping defenders and Chuck got his shit thrown by Odio. Defensively, they're liabilities against the drive and kick ball screen happy BC 15 guard set.
In time, those guys should play to our advantage. Tonight, I don't see it.
Hard to say. I just wish we had an identity and stuck to it. We really don't. Tonight we lived and died by the 3. Against Duke we went inside.
Who knows if going big would have worked - but going small in the second half was an absolute disaster tonight.
Len 4 pts tonight, he is such a stiff. I pitty the team that blows a lottery pick on him.
Can GW teach Turge the flex?
It's a rotation filled with very flawed players. We actually had guys who airballed from three point range and from the free throw line. I'm sure that has happened before but, I don't remember ever seeing that in the same game.
Chuck and Shaq aren't quick enough to defend their stretch "bigs." Jake had to play even though his shot wasn't falling because he was the best defensive match-up. Those decisions make sense. I expected to see more lobs into Alex, but he didn't do a great job of getting position or finishing when he did touch the ball.
This is the line-up I wanted to see playing the bulk of the minutes today, though:
Seth, Logan, Dez, Jake, Alex
It gives us enough shooters to spread the floor, Seth and Dez can penetrate, and I would have Jake or Dez occasionally post up, anticipating the double team on Alex. Either they're open or a shooter is. Defensively you've got three potential shot blockers on the floor, and enough length to get into the passing lanes. Pe, Jake, and Chuck could spell tired players. #Profit
