I'd rather see OSU do well in the NCAA tournament....next year. This team does need all the practice and confidence building possible, and that's more likely to happen if they play several postseason games. If they can get 2 or more games in the B1G tourney and maybe 3 or more in the postseason, that would be pretty darn good. OTOH, I am open to being wowed.
And for those shouting for DEVELOPMENT, it's there to see. Team rebounding and free-throw shooting is getting better, and turnovers are down. Defense is improving, but with the occasional lapse, and often from mental mistakes. They are starting to get it, and remember it, and implement what the coaches are telling them. As experience grows, so do consistency and confidence. But if you are (over)expecting one or several of these guys to turn into LBJ or Curry or Wilt, it's not likely to happen, even though there's a lot of potential upside for a few of them. But I'd rather see them develop as a team than to have 1 player be the "go to guy." It's much harder to defend a team where any of several players can make a decisive play, than just stopping one guy.
