Lavin's 3 guard look paying dividends...

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports


Things have taken a bit of a turn with the lineup these days. The backcourt combination of Branch and Harrison with Rysheed playing almost a point forward is a really nice look. Jamal had his best game of the season so far last night dropping six dimes and attacking the rim. I didn't really see this coming going back to summer. With all the depth the Johnnies have I didn't think there was a need to go in that direction. Maybe it was Phil being out with the flu, (i got it to phil) or just the fact that we've been struggling, but this combination of Jamal, D, and Sheed with Jak and Primo is feeling like the right one. I am starting to see why this team has been struggling so badly. There is this powerful freshman force, he is so good, and it is none the matter how many people guard him. He took on 3 defenders last night did some crazy acrobatic move, missed the shot and I almost fell out of my chair. I looked at my friend who was sitting next to me. Now my friend is related to Carl Yazstremski and his family possesses amazing athletic abilities. He in particular a 6' 2 guard with amazing handle and hops watched Rysheed and just shook his head. No disrespect to anyone else on the team but we haven't had anybody around here for a while that could do that. How do you not play him? The answer is play 3 guards. I applaud you for taking your time and getting this thing on track Lav. I was in Queens when we lost to Providence and I was one of the silent when they introduced you. For that I am sorry. Lav has said all year long the team would gel in January and it looks like he was right. Yeah the Juniors have been playing together for 3 years but this is basically a brand new group. This next game will tell us quite a bit. Creighton looks to be playing great and has a nice win last night as well. Storm 81 Jays 70
