Adams lit it up in both high school and JUCO levels and while no one was expecting 20 ppg, I think everyone expected a bit more from him. Because of his offensive struggles (his offensive rating was the worst on the team) and a concusion, he had a hard time finding minutes at first. When he did play, he showed some impressive defensive ability. Unfortunately, his shot just wasn't falling. Finally, late in the season, news broke that Adams was also dealing with the recent discovery that he has diabetes. That, combined with the concussion explain some of the struggles that Adams had this season.
2012-13: So if Adams posted such horrible numbers this season (and his ORtg, shooting percentages and TORate are REALLY hard to swallow), why have I and others mentioned him as a potential starter for next season? In my case it might just be pure blind optimism. From all accounts Adams was tearing it up in practice all year, but just struggled in games. If he can get over that hurdle, we should be able to see the practice player -- and we started to see brief glimpses in the PAC-12 and NCAA Tournaments. Also, with an entire off-season to adjust to dealing with diabetes, he should feel stronger and more confident as well. If that happens, he could be a strong defender on the wing who can hit the open jumper -- something this team needs desperately. Adams could be a huge part of next season's team, and could ultimately decide if we're a decent team or a good one.
