Agree. I was surprised to see some positive comments about Cortes after last night's game. I think he is smart, athletic and an excellent ball handler, but he struggled last night against a top team who plays with good defensive pressure. I think he will be very good and he will continue to improve.

But Goldwire is just more steady right now. And with his defense and leadership he is what the team needs.

I think most understood the OP was way off, just a knee jerk reaction after Goldwire played bad in a loss. I think it should be Cortes>Mason for backup PG. Mason might end up being a better player, but Cortes is OU's best pure PG on offense. It will take Cortes a year, I think, to be able to guard and get used to the athleticism in P5 basketball.

Cortes is better than I thought he would be, but he is not ready to take over from Goldwire. Not even close.
