St. John's basketball - Phil Wait: Half-Season Conference Report

Phil Wait

Phil Wait hasn't seen much time, but I will take a paragraph or two to speak on him. There are those who want to see a big man - even one who is already 22 years old - make an immediate impact. I think it is disappointing to not see more from Wait. But I also would say that he is 7 feet tall, and when he arrived, the coaching staff cautioned that he was not ready, that he needed to develop strength and conditioning.

Hopefully that strength is coming. The Englishman's hands need improvement, and his positioning in the offense needs improvement as well. There have been rumors of knee problems, as well. But the guy can run a little, and his extremely limited time on the court has hinted at those big man skills - shot blocking, rebounding. And he may have some offensive touch.

Wait has only gotten into two conference games, so... of course, take his numbers with all the grains of salt you have.

Below are tables with Wait's conference numbers from this year. To better understand the individual tempo-free statistics mean, read here and a glossary of terms here.
