Boynton has the responsibility to turn him into the elite player. We all saw the turnovers last night. Most of his come from really poor decisions. Going to fast. Driving to deep. Trying to make passes from bad angles or spots on the floor.
What you saw as Anderson helping us separate I saw as questionable decisions. Up 12-14 under 4 and he takes shots in back to back possessions less than 5 seconds into our half court set wo one pass or one screen. Yes he made a contested layup and a mid range jumper that pushed the lead toward 20 but risk reward tells you to run clock then get the ball to the rim. It’s player decisions like this that are keeping Boynton from taking the next step as a coach. I hope he gets there but he made the same decisions last night that cost us vs TCU and WV. Case in point was player personnel. With the game still hovering around 10 points we had a former walk on and Kuoma and Ke Boone on the floor w no Ice. Then later we have both Boones and Anderson on the floor w Walker and Williams. If I remember we had back to back turnovers and thankfully Iowa St was just awful. Boynton did sub and correct the lineup but why even have these combos? If in either one of those situations Iowa St converts 2 straight possessions the game tightens and we put ourselves in an unnecessary fight where you lose another late game lead.
