It sounds like I'm glad I didn't take the afternoon off. I think this is the first home game I've missed since Frank has been here.

This team doesn't have it. The final score doesn't mean much. The fact that they actually struggled....with Limestone...at home for a stretch of the first half is more meaningful. The offense just isn't there.

Only at Carolina would fans expect any differently considering what we lost last year. More than anything this team has no heart and soul like it had with Thornwell.

Im not saying this team is going to be a final four team, or anything for that matter...But its hard to "get up" for a game against a Division II team you know you're better than coming off of a holiday break when you just left your family and friends.

Thats why you play a game like this off of a decent layoff to shake off the dust. I still agree the team is lacking leadership at the point possition right now. But what was said below, ill never question a team's heart. If the team didnt have it it wouldnt have continued playing when it was down early.

You also play a game like this to get your players a chance to show what they can do, and to get valuable experience.

Beatty is not exactly a PG. But if Rah does not come back (I think he will, but just in case), Beatty should take minutes away from Gravett. Gravett is capable but seems to be struggling at PG, with his ballhandling, shot, and on-ball D.

Beatty can score and is more athletic, so he would be better on D. Let him and Myers play more until Holden and (hopefully) Rah can get int the mix.

Agree. And as Frank tries different combinations he is putting different guys in different roles to find out what who can step up and be his "go to" guys during league play. He's looking for leadership and the ability to make clutch plays. The final score is irrelevant in these games.

He obviously sees something good in Beatty and wants to see if that seed will sprout.

I think this can still be a good team and make the tournament, but they've got to learn what it takes to win as a team.

Frank said he intends to practice Beatty some at PG. He said he is not happy with what he is getting at the PG position right now and he wants to see what Beatty can do there.

All of the guys who are playing PG should improve/relax/acclimate as the season progresses. And we need them to. They all seem a bit stiff out there. I'm sure they are trying to please Frank. I sure hope Holden gets well soon. If I were to rank our point guards according to their ability to play the position, right now I would say 1. Holden, 2. Myers, 3. Gravett. But all three have had good moments and not so good.

I really think we should try to get a medical exemption for Holden this year, if it's possible.

If Rah comes back I agree Holden hasn't shown the scoring ability Frank says he has.

He was just starting to play his way into form when he pulled the hammy. He was about the only guy that had a decent game against Clemson, then he goes down with the injury.

Frank knows what Holden can do, which is why he was not worried about Rah. But now that Holden is iffy again, I would be surprised if Frank does not make a hard push with Dr. Pastides and Ray to get Rah back in school.

Since the charges were dropped let him back in. I don't think Rah will completely change this team though. To me, he is a little bit less skilled version of Devan Downey. He is the best guard on this team but not a one man offense like Downey was.

We were up by 9 at the half, won by 40 pts, and held them to 20 pts in the second half.
