    Chiozza didn't finish great last year though. Perhaps due to fatigue and having to rely on him, but looking back at his Feb/March stats, his struggles led to our team struggles and nearly missing the NCAAT.

    Of course going forward we are likely relying either on a true freshmen, a true sophomore, or some form of "PG by committee". None of those things usually bode well for replacing a senior PG who was in a way the heart and soul of the team. But on the bright side, it's not like Chiozza's actual production is impossible to replace. But it's fair to worry about those intangibles. I'm guessing the ball will be in Hudson's hands alot next year to take the load off whoever is playing PG.

    ESPN: "Hudson wasn't invited to the NBA combine and was told he wouldn't get drafted."

    I thought EFawcett said he was performing well in private NBA workouts per sources. Maybe they just thought he could use another year in College, since he only played 1 season since sitting out due to transfer rules. If he plays lights out this year I still think he could be drafted. He has all the skills.

    Not really ALL the skills. He's a dynamic slasher and driver with an explosive first step and can finish through contact like a lottery pick. But his jump shot and free throw shot were mediocre at best. Defense was okay, not great. If he can improve on those he'll be awesome.

    I would not call Hudson's jump shot mediocre. I do think he can improve a lot on the defensive end.

    As usual Planet, excellent observations, although other than FT's, I believer you've overly negatively regarding his shooting. He hit 40.5% of 3s, 50.5% of 2's, and 66% of FTs while taking exactly 3 more shots from the field than 3Gor.

    He really need to improve on free throws late in the game. But they never stopped anybody in the NBA.

    Don't like his release (ball rotation) on his jump shot, but if he shoots 40% (on 3's) I'll overlook the problem.

    Cheese's ball handling, passing, defense and effort were superb right through the end of the season. His shooting, including his free throw shooting fell off. That might have been because of fatigue.

    Good point. His 3 is clearly better than I thought.

    It is crazy how many shots he hits when the ball came out of his hand spinning like a globe
