I know a turnover is a turnover is a turnover... but images of them sailing over his shoulders and into the student section tend to stick out.
All this being said... I am not sure what board you are reading. Boynton and Wilbekin are getting killed on here.
I agree with you, which is why I disagree with the bolded sentence. Turnovers are not
created equal. Some are careless and/or head-shaking in that they make no sense at all. And, some are the result of recognizing and trying to make the correct play or take a valid risk and lack of perfect execution results in a turnover. I can live with the latter much easier than the former.
Boynton had one head-shaking TO in the UK game, but he doesn't have a lot of those. Frazier had that careless (someone called it "lazy" on the game thread on the insider forum) pass to Boynton that the UK player trailing the play intercepted, which was probably a big reason Frazier didn't get a lot of minutes the rest of that game. The 2 quick turnovers in a row that Yeguete had early against Bama didn't bother me that much, because they were calculated risks that he didn't quite execute well enough, but both passes were close to being completed and both would have resulted in a layup if completed.
A couple of games back, someone in another thread was advocating for Rosario to lose his starting position to Prather, because of MR's recent struggles. I responded that Donovan doesn't jerk his players around like that. But
, I'm starting to re-think that. It's been 3 or 4 games of this now from Rosario. I'm starting to wonder now if Rosario's starting position might be in jeopardy. I tend to believe he will keep his starting position, but if Rosario has a similar type of careless TO going forward in the SECT, I won't be surprised to see Billy employ a quick hook and some extended bench time.
