“COURTSIDE WITH SETH DAVIS” NEWS AND NOTES
Hosted by college basketball insider Seth Davis, COURTSIDE WITH SETH DAVIS is a one-hour, fast-paced program focusing on the latest developments, the most intriguing storylines and the inside scoop from the world of college basketball.
This week’s show features interviews with St. John’s head coach Steve Lavin and Baylor head coach Scott Drew. Davis is also joined by college basketball writers Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com, Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports and Mike DeCourcy of the Sporting News.
(JEFF GOODMAN ON DUKE):
They had so many guys in different roles this year. I think Austin Rivers is still adjusting to being ‘the guy’ and his teammates are adjusting to him. He’s got to learn to be a better teammate. And they don’t have a point guard. Ultimately, I think it comes down to that. You put Seth Curry at the point guard spot, he’s just not a point guard. So now they’re going with Quinn Cook. He’ll be better, but he’s probably still a year away from being a top-flight point guard in the ACC. We haven’t even come to their defensive deficiencies. They can’t guard anyone in the perimeter. So I think there’s a lot there right now for Duke to get to that elite level. They’re not an elite team this year.

(MIKE DECOURCY ON PAC-12 STRUGGLES):
You have the agent proximity. They’re losing guys before they’re ready to go (to the NBA). Malcolm Lee, Tyler Honeycutt, guys like that. When players like that are sucked out of your programs it’s hard to replace them in time to be good again.

(ST. JOHN’S COACH STEVE LAVIN ON NURIDEEN LINDSAY TRANSFER):
Each recruit, each player and the relationship you have with the player is unique. So there are going to be times like in any aspect of life where it’s just not a good fit. It doesn’t necessarily have to be acrimonious, it could just be style, system of play, not adjusting or adapting; two-way street. I don’t want to get into the blame game. I think sometimes it’s not a good fit, you have that amicable divorce and you move forward and try to find the right fit. No one is going to bat 1.000 in recruiting and not every school is going to be the perfect fit for a particular player. So what you try to do, is you hope that the law of averages at the end of the day, play out in your favor.

(BAYLOR COACH SCOTT DREW ON SOPHOMORE PERRY JONES):
He’s showing signs everyday of getting better and better. He’s young. He’s not one of those guys who is fully developed. When he’s 28, he’s going to be a lot better than he is right now. But from a coaching standpoint, you couldn’t ask for a better teammate, a better person. And because of that, sometimes he is too unselfish.
