Ian Andersennnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Desperate and dark things eh?

Whatever it is, hopefully it keeps his confidence up and he can produce for us in the next few games.

[quote=“metro, post:18, topic:22543”][quote=“hootie, post:17, topic:22543”]Let’s be honest, he can’t play dead in a western, buy dude seems to love the program.

He hit a huge 3 against Duquense that got us to within 2 with 22.5 seconds- that could have been major but we didn’t close.

He can’t guard the watercooler but has accepted his role on the team- nice to see him have a good game at home toward the end of his career.[/quote]

yep

I would love to see him play over his head here at the end, we could use a guy who can play 10 min a game and score

I can tell you from experience, at the end of your senior year, you will choke your grandma for the team’s success…the feeling of only having a few more games to play in your career brings out desperate and dark things in an athlete and hopefully thats where his head is right now.[/quote]

Funny, my recollection is that you hoped he never saw the floor again. And I quote:

“Ian makes the game essential 5 on 4. He is that bad”.

"I AM SO GD SICK OF SEEING IAN ANDERSEN DO HIS JUMPING JACKS defense at the top of the key in the 2-3 zone. He should never be on the floor. EVER"

Whichever way the wind blows, right. You’re like the guy I play golf with who “calls” every putt over 15 feet, that way when he hits 1 out of 20 he can say “Told you so”.

Ahem

Yeah- I’m pretty sure it’s me…

Well, I guess we can all agree it is not me.

Yawn
Take your midol or lithium…whatever regulates your legendary mood

the way Ian was playing, he didn’t deserve to see the floor. If he hits shoots like he did yesterday, then he’s earned the right to play 10 min per game, then again, so did Sirin.

The way SJU was playing, I think we could have started the last 5 off our bench and still competed.

That game was awesome.

Pretty sure one of those quotes was me, and I stand by it.

Ian would be okay if he played versus teams that didn’t guard him closely, and if the man he had to cover was no threat to score. So, he’d pretty much be good in the Northeast Conference with other scrubs.

He can’t get separation against decent defenders, and he can’t guard anyone worth a lick.

I’m loving those complaining about Andersen’s D and aren’t ragging Gokhan about it and advocating him at 2g. Sure it didn’t matter, but Gokhan got burnedddd last night on D. He has no chance at guarding a remotely fast player. Ian at least stands a chance.

Yes, let’s compare a Senior that got 18 minutes in the loss to Xavier versus a Freshman that gets garbage time minutes.

Clearly not apples vs. oranges.

Nope. Both quotes by the metro man.

Clearly not apples vs. oranges.[/quote]Ian’s a senior…We can safely assume that he’s not going to get any better than he is now.Which isn’t very good on defense.At least we can hope that Gokhan improves with minutes and “coaching”.

I think we all know it’s the socks… am I wrong that he brought back the high socks last night for the first time in a while?

Dude, Metro’s a big boy and can defend himself- but, everything he said about Ian is true. He’s limited. He and I both have always said he’s a probably great kid. It’s obvious Lutz is gonna play him, I hope he plays over his head as well.

He’s going to be out there, hope he plays well. What’s wrong with that???

C’mon dude- don’t nitpick over the silly stuff, we all know Ian is what he is.

If this is just a message board pisssing contest, then excuse me, have at it.

Thanks- I don’t have to be the voice of reason on this…

Hey, not all of us.[quote=“moss2k, post:28, topic:22543”]the way Ian was playing, he didn’t deserve to see the floor.[/quote]

Looks to me like this all goes to prove what a lousy coach Lutz is, huh? Heres a coach so dumb that he lets someone who shouldn’t even see the floor get enough playing time that he’s among the top ten 3 point scorers in Charlotte’s history. (Ian reached that milestone as a junior, having played 2 of those three years with Lemire Goldwire.)
Lutz is losing it. You mark my word; If coach Lutz doesn’t come to his senses and learn to evaluate talent, he’s going to bring in some totally inept nincompoop and allow him to play enough to score 2000 points in his career.

What’s your point? Me’angelo and Plavich were ahead of him coming into this season and they only played two years total. In DA case both years were with Leemire Goldwire and Plavich played a year with Lee and one with Demon.

Not sure who you are talking about scoring 2000 points but unless Ian continues his hot streak he will be lucky to get to 750.

Fact of the matter is the way he was playing he did not deserve to be playing as many minutes as he had been getting. He just went off for 19 pts against one of the worst teams in the league and is now averaging a robust 3.3 points per game. I hope he can keep hitting his shots as I have said several times we will need him or Gokhan to step up to make a run in the postseason. We’ll see in the next 3 games when the other teams play something that resembles defense.

I’ve played with better guards in intramurals than Ian Andersen.
