Vahe Gregorian (@VGregorian) re-joins the Full Court Press to talk about Mizzou’s victory over Texas, Marcus Denmon’s struggles, Frank Haith’s coaching ability, his favorite Big 12 destinations, no. 8 Kansas, and much more.
Listen to full interview here: FCP-January 31
On Marcus Denmon’s recent struggles:
“I don’t feel like it’s as much in his head as it’s just literally in his form. Maybe those two things go together so much it’s hard to discern the difference, but I really feel like you can look at his shot: the arc is flat, he’s not getting a lot of lift, [and] quite often the ball is short…I think this really clearly looks in mechanics right now.”
Flaws (other than height) this team has:
“We’ve gotten a little spoiled. You know, they’re 20-2 and we’re so used to winning games by 25-28 points, that now we’re critiquing games on the road at Texas. So, that really speaks well if that’s where we are on them.”
Haith’s time management late in games Question via Steve McGuire (@DUBMCG):
“I had the impression that against Illinois he wanted to see his players play themselves out of it, but I think it required a timeout…Oklahoma State might have also been a game to catch it and stop it a couple of times, but by-in-large I think he’s had pretty good judgment on that.”
HSB will have full coverage of national signing day tomorrow morning, starting with Dorial Green-Beckham’s announcement at 9:15 AM.
