    It's beyond a trend. It's a fact.

    But he'll turn that corner at some point. And when he does, we become a really, really good team on the road.

    Should Askia shoot the ball ever again?

    You're insane on this topic. Ski is going to end up as a Top 5 all-time scorer at CU.

    Alright, then.

    And, yes. Ski is Jekyll & Hyde when you look at home & neutral vs away.

    Next year, if Askia is struggling shooting, Boyle with have other options available. We're just so thin at guard this year, that we have little choice but to ride with Booker even if he is really, really struggling.

    Kinda reminds me of Carlon last year and tour it up in the tourney. Hopefully same thing will happen.

    For the bball aficionados how often does a player turn it around? Every time I watch a game I get frustrated that he hasn't learned about the fine art of passing.

    This summer Tad should invest in a bus pass for Askia, make him go all over the place to shoot around. Learn to focus on the basket, not all the other surroundings.

    I feel that Askia is someone who has tremendous work ethic and practices so much at coors, he feels comfortable there, not so much other places.

    No. Ski is learning to play D and rebound the ball with effectiveness. He mostly took good looks against OSU. I can live with that kind of performance. He shut down Starks in the 2d half.

    When he's on, he's driving to the basket. When he's off, he's doing his best mid-30's Jordan impression taking deep jumpers. Except they're not falling.

    Tad should tell him 3 of every 4 shots needs to come driving to the basket for the remainder of the season. Otherwise, he's not allowed to shoot. Can't keep putting up 2/14 nights. But this is fixable.

    Anyone notice Dre push Ski in the arm after missing a fast break transition late in the 2nd quarter? He pulled up for a jumper near the foul line and bricked it. Good to see someone step up and police bad shot selection from Ski.
