Why has Tim not played before this season. Why? It is a simple question isn't it?
He scored 31 points. In a variety of ways too. Hit 3s, scored in the post, made free throws, and hit some mid range shots. Amazing performance and he started.
But heres the problem. He started over the wrong player. He started over Ty Nash instead of Jonathan Peoples. JP is not good. I'm sorry, he just is not good. Let's compare Ty Nash and JP on this very day.
Nash: 23 minutes, 7 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 turnover
Peoples: 20 minutes, 0 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 1 turnover
-So lets say the turnover cancels out the assist...all he contributed was one defensive rebound in a full half of basketball. Why is he starting?
That being said because of Tory Jacksons injury, peoples will be in the starting line-up next game. However, despite that awful side effect, this injury could work out not that bad for the Irish. Tory will be back in time for UCLA for sure (according to Mike Brey), and it could open up a spot for a freshmen to get some time in the next game. I know that is unprecedented I do, but how amazing would it be for a FRESHMEN to get playing time? Brey never trusts freshmen it seems but he could be forced to play one next game.
Back to the good. Gody scored the usual 29 points. Him and Tim led the way to an easy win. Lets keep the momentum going, eh?
