The issue is whether the player has the potential to contribute. The coaches have to make that judgment and they have to estimate how hard the player will work to improve. Doesn't always work out how they expect.

There is nothing wrong picking up someone that you know will not be a contributor right away. Buddy didn't contribute a lot his freshman season and Isiah even less.

Buddy started 13 games and averaged 25 minutes as a true freshman on an NCAA Tournament team. He developed into a much better player, but he was still one of our best players that year.

It's remarkable how similar Hield's freshman season and Bieniemy's were.

Jamal averaged 25.1 minutes per game to Buddy's 25.3. They both averaged 39% from the field, though Jamal outshot Buddy from deep, 40% to 24%; as a result, Jamal averaged .95 points per shot from the field to Buddy's .87.

Buddy shot much better from the free throw line, however: 83% to 64%. Jamal averaged 1.4 steals per game to Buddy's 1.2, while Buddy averaged 1.6 turnovers per game to Jamal's 1.4.

The primary difference, besides the three-point percentage, is that Jamal averaged just 4.7 shots per game to Buddy's 7.7 per.

Sky,

Nice research on that... Bienemy is all-conference, no doubt about it. He is going to blow up this year.

Here's hoping his drive and work ethic rival Buddy's.

This kid has a chance to develop into a solid player because he is a long athletic kid who doesn't hurt the offense because he can shoot the ball outside. He'll only get better, a lot better if he's a hard worker.
