The Go-To-Guy Argument


Watching Doug Gottleib make a fool out of himself in declaring Perry Jones III a "go-to guy" last night got me thinking. Well, first of all, I was surprised to find out that Jones averages 14.2 PPG, a mere 0.5 PPG more than Kris Joseph, who is so clearly not a go-to guy in Gottleib's mind. Then I started thinking about how other teams' supposed go-to guys stacked up against Syracuse.

Here are the stats of the top two scorers in PPG for the top 10 in the AP poll. Syracuse's top guy ranks last among all of these teams, so clearly Gottleib is right. I mean, the 0.3 PPG more from Doron Lamb from Kentucky is going to be the difference int he National title game when UK wins by a score of 72.3-72. Man, that ones gonna hurt. Sorry guys.
