I think BQ somewhat oversold his argument when he brought up Austin Peay. No question that loss was a killer when it came to NCAA selection time. It was at home and they came from a one-bid conference. UVA is a respectable program from a respectable conference and the Vols will be playing at their place. A loss won't help them, but it won't be nearly as bad as losing to APSU.
Like some on here, I think Jordan has the talent to do what he says, he just needs to seize on his opportunities without trying to force the action. That is a fine line to walk. All I would say to him is to stay focused on finishing the shot when he gets contact going to the hoop. Slim as he is, he can get whacked around a bit. However, if he stays focused on the finish, his slim build can be an asset. He can get through smaller creases than bigger players can, and he should be limber enough that contact on his body shouldn't cause him to spasm and not get off a controlled shot. One thing is for sure: they need SOME perimeter guy besides Golden to be a consistent scoring threat, whether from the three-point arc or off the drive. I thought in the early going that Richardson might be such a one, but now I'm not sure. In any case, the Vols had better develop a more effective plan for attacking zones or they won't have a chance this year against good teams.
