Yes, Mustapha Heron has struggled.
No, the team is not better off without the threat of his shooting.
But starting tonight, a few players have the chance to step into that role and make some open shots. Will it be David Caraher? Will it be Greg Williams Jr.?
Can Marcellus Earlington build on a strong performance at Creighton against a team that is far better at rebounding?
Game note: Ian Steere has been suspended indefinitely for "failing to meet the standards of the program", per NY Post.
