Just finished watching the game. No question, Pe had rough moments down the stretch. And, the team in general could not handle the 1-3-1 zone, and that is on your point guard and your head coach, so Pe' and Turg have to take some blame there.
But did you see the first half? Sweet dime to Pankey, who is stuffed at the rim. Smart pass to Weijs when Wiejs was playing the four off a double on the pick and roll, bricks the 15 footer. Later, another beautiful pass to Weijs who fumbled it out-of-bounds.
Ben alluded to it in the summary. If Pe' was on a better team with better teammates that finished those plays, we would all applaud the plays. He does take the unneccesary risk for time to time, but you got to give him props for the plays he does create.
I will agree that he is not quite quick enough to be a top-flight starting ACC point guard.
But, let's remember the history. We only offered him a scholarship because Terence Ross de-committed. He was a backup plan. Let's not act like he was some 5-star who is dissappointing. He is who he is, he is the only guy capable of playing the point for us this year, and he is trying his ass off.
