"PG in college is more about who you can guard than what you can do offensively. Tyler is a good, not great, offensive player but is completely over-matched at this level on defense. We can't hide him at all, at least not against any team with a pair of ACC-caliber starting guards. He was always going to come off the bench if there was a better option available. Honestly, of all the transfers under Gott, this one makes the most sense for purely basketball reasons.

With all that said, it still hurts, and his ball handling, basketball IQ, and highlight reels plays will be missed. If he would have accepted the backup roll, he could have become invaluable as experienced relief off the bench, especially while protecting a lead near the end of games."

I completely disagree about PG play. It's insanely important. It's not exactly rocket science to see why UK is winning now despite no increase in production from a guy like Randle. It's all about Harrison's growth.

Duke won every game that Quinn Cook actually showed up too.

UConn has won a title and made a Final Four almost exclusively due to PG play.

** almost invariably title winners have two things. A great PG and tough team defense.

Jason Williams was the main reason Duke was Duke a decade+ ago.

Both those guys had a reliable 3pt shot. Lewis doesn't.

Duke lost the best game of Cook's career against Mercer.

^^ meh, I was away so I didn't see that game. Larger point is still accurate. Locally look at the transformation of UNC after Drew left and KM took over.

It's for the best that he transferred. He was a desperation recruit that never panned out. He needs to find a conference that fits his level of size/skills. He'd be a nice fit at a mid major where he isn't such a liability in transition defense and on loose balls/long rebounds.

he was better in transition defense than barber. true fact. barber lost his man in transition constantly. honestly, it's probably the worst part of his game (besides tripping over his own feet while dribbling).

Yeah just having tyler back on defense is like having no one rotate back. The constant dunksand layups off long rrebounds just wreak havoc when trying to be competitive with college level teams

That last minute or so when St Louis was on the break he was guarding literally no one and his man dropped the three on us to tie the game.

So lemme just ask this cause it is on my mind: why is it that a guy like Tyler Lewis can't hack it in the ACC but somebody like Stocton killed it in the NBA? Is it the era that they played in, or are there fundamental skill set differences?

Stockton was an underrated athlete. He wasn't an explosive jumper or anything. But you don't become the all time leader in steals and assists without some serious quickness and agility.

Plus he was significantly taller than lewis.


Lewis has skill and a great head for the game. He's just too short and too limited athletically for his driving game to work and he's not a natural shooter. I think with a year off and not having to hit the weights so hard you'll see him start shooting a reasonable percentage from the floor.

Stockton was a really quick dude. He was also a little taller and leaner. Lewis is shorter and a little "stouter/stumpier" than Stockton. He'll never be quick or fast enough to hack it in the NBA.

It sucks...because he really does have phenomenal passing ability and point guard "instincts". I also think he could have been a solid starting point guard in the ACC if he could become a more consistent shooter.

I remember that. He actually tried to make the right play. Him and nard switched guys and cat tried to switch back, but nard just stood there. That one is not on cat.

Lewis was too slow and couldn't guard the perimeter. So many blow bys that cause the whole defense to rotate and get out of position.

John Stockton was 4 inches taller and much quicker than TL. Plus he was dirty in a good way.

You just compared TL to one of the best pure PGs ever.

John Stockon has the white man's burden of being compared to all other future white point guards.

LOL John Stockton is 6ft 1....I love how people always point to me being tall and I should have played basketball...bitch I am 6ft 3 and normally would be one of the 3 shortest on any team.

"Looking at his stats from his time at NC State, you would think that Lewis was not a very good shooter.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

He isn’t just an average shooter, he is a great one. Based off the system that was run at his former school, Tyler was not given the opportunity to shoot the ball freely."

I think that the ACC was just too soon for him; the dude needed a consistent shot that just was not there. BUT, in terms of unbelievable passes, he was an ace no doubt. He could use this year off to develop his shot and turn into a very decent player... or not.

Was absolutely worthless vs teams that could pressure the ball via man to man. Effective vs teams that played zone or packed their man to man inside. Crazy how his much value changed depending on the opposition.

Even with how small he is and his defensive issues, if he could've shot just a decent percentage from 3 I think he would've been above average ACC point guard. When you're that small and not overly quick, you have to be able to knock down some kind of jump shot.

Lol at anyone calling a guy who makes 36% in practice a GREAT shooter.

If you cant hit 50% in practice you shouldn't even take that shot in a game.

Ray Allen probably shoots close to 70% in practice. In his warmup routine even higher.
