Getting better with the Bigs

From the Mother Ship, I wrote about the Ole Miss “bigs” today, and Andy Kennedy validated that theory at the Tuesday presser.

He likes what his team has become, and a lot of that has to do with production in the frontcourt that is better than it was a year ago.

While this is still a “guard-led” offense, Kennedy would like to see more from his backcourt.

“I did think we would have the versatility that we’ve shown. I thought we’d play a number of different guys and play different ways whether it be defensively, or we are leading the league in scoring now in league play. We’re still not shooting the ball great. Forty-four percent is OK but it’s not as good as I think we can, and a lot of that is guard play. Our bigs are producing at a level that they didn’t last year. Jarvis has still been struggling with field goals, Moody has been somewhat consistent, Snoop hasn’t been as good in league play, and I think those guys can get better in that regard, and I think it will take our team to another level, especially offensively, but I like the versatility of the group, and I like the fact that we’ve got different guys we can depend on.”
