Tuesday Question - 02/09/10

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...

Can the Rebels win in Starkville without Reginald Buckner?

Not to take anything away from DeeAunDray' Cranston (who doesn't need anymore taken away from him) and Murphey Holloway, but we all know that this team is about as strong in the middle as a Cadbury Egg.  Sure, they have their talents, but none of them are complete players.  That's why it's important to have all of them.

I don't know if you all noticed, but Terrance Henry was playing the role of big man on Saturday against Alabama - and doing great at it.  But that's probably just him getting hot.  And Mississippi State is a more fundamentally sound and talented basketball team than Alabama.  

Of course, this all further obscures the fact that the real reason we beat Alabama on Saturday was we drove well.  Driving the lane disrupts the zone and opens up shots.  If we can drive well, we can win.  And Reginald being in or out does not really impact our ability to drive.  

Winning at State is going to be a tall order (that's what Jarvis Varnado said lol).  And it'd be nice to have our full complement of paint players.
