Devil’s Country – ASU Sports Report

Rough Weekend in LA

Filed under: Basketball — Matt Sawyer @ 3:30 pm

Its fairly clear now that the Devils need more firepower.  Who else can step up?  Harden can only do so much.  A recent comment hit the nail on the head, we need an inside game.  I thought coming into this year that Pendergraph was going to fill that void easily just on his own.  He isn’t Ike Diogu, but the double and triple teams are still coming at him just like they used to with Ike.  The difference is, Ike could get into a trap and get the ball to the open man. 

The shots just aren’t falling.  Abbott, Glasser, Shipp, McMillen, Polk, and Antuane are just not the shooters that we need complimenting a great player like James Harden.  Us Devil’s fans can only hope that Harden will stick around for a few years.  If he takes off for the NBA money, the devils are going to be left like they were when Diogu left.

  1. Can’t do anything about shots not falling.

  2. True, but I guess what I’m trying to say is there is a lack of talent and depth on this roster. What Herb has them doing is well beyond what they physically should be doing.
