Our biggest issue last year was bench shooting. I mean if you watched this team last year it was immediately apparent. We didn't lose games because of a "lack of pestering opposing guards". We didn't lose because we couldn't turn the ball over. We had difficulty all year producing OFFENSE off the bench. This kid does that. Whatever his weaknesses may be, Pritchard potentially addresses a huge need from last season.
Well sure, but I was replying to the notion that Pritchard was bigger than Waters, and hence a better defensive presence. IMO the only good reason to keep Waters over Pritchard would center around defense.
But if we're talking shooting too, as a freshman per 40 Waters averaged 16 pts per game while shooting 35% on slightly more than 6 threes per game. In four years at Oregon, Pritchard scored 13.5 points per game and shot 38% on slightly more than 5 threes per game.
So even on the offensive end, I'd rather have Pritchard playing PG for his intangibles and his clutch shooting ability, but Waters wtill deserves a chance to duel with him.
