that latter part of last year he really improved. Silva was great in the tourney. If Thornwell hadnt gotten sick i believe we wouldve been in the national champ game.

Not to take anything away from Chris, but I attribute part of his improvement in the tourney to the officiating. In a typical game, Chris would have maybe 1 'legitimate' foul, plus 1 or 2 'headscratchers', the latter being dumb plays like fouling a poor-shooting power forward 20 feet from the rim. He worked harder to clean those up and improved toward the end of the year, but he needs to continue doing so this year.

Frankly, the other fouls often weren't his fault, but rather were the result of SEC officiating, which is terrible and situational (ref: "umm - there's a guy on an open breakway dunk and if Silva actually blocks it when he shouldn't have then it's a foul even if Silva made a great play and didn't touch the guy"). He was, in some cases, just way too athletic for officials, got a somewhat-deserved reputation for fouling, and they hung him out to dry. The same thing happened to Carrera and happens to other athletic hustle guys, like Chris.

The good news is that as Chris becomes more established this year and cuts out the dumb fouls, these other fouls should go away and he'll be on the floor more. He's a better shooter than many people give him credit for, and I agree with others - I think he's going to have a monster year, especially if we can get any kind of effective outside shooting to open things up more for him.
