Great analysis.  I think there is definitely a lot of upside to Kam both this season and in the next few.

Kam's performance in the Northwestern game was key, hope to see more of that in the future.

And maybe some of this:

Killa Kam!  I really do like how fast he shoots, no hesi.

Kam does a tremendous job of attacking the shot and stepping toward the bucket. Keita was knocking them down in a few of the early games but now he is falling sideways off his shot. Hope they fix that soon.

This article has been up for over an hour and a half and there are only a handful of comments. I love OSU football, but if this was a story on the long snapper, there would be 85 comments by now.

Love it or leave it!

It's funny, people only seem to comment about Basketball on game day's or if there is a #firethad forum topic.  I love OSU FB and BB equally.  Love me some Kam Williams and the BasketballBucks!

What I've seen so far this season is inconsistency but not so much in basketball X or O's, but in intensity and will to play the game. You have to come out of the gate with fire in your belly and play the game like you mean it.

Kam is a breath of fresh air, as are most of the guys playing this year - finally nice to have big men who are active on both ends and at the very least hustle back on D. 

What's evident in these clips is that when they get clean cuts and make the extra pass (or two) that opens up Lyle, Kam, or Loving. I'd be happy to see some more inside-out game because while I do like our big men, it'd be better for them to attract the defense and kick it out so that one of the wings has a good look to drive or take a jumper. A lot of this was missing yesterday. Also, Loving needs to take better care of the ball. Too many careless dribbles affects the offense or turns the ball over.

_______ will continue to see playing time if he shows consistent effort on defense.

This is a crucial requirement on Matta's teams.

Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Pleassnt surprise witnessing Kam getting his confidence in his shot. They have great bball highschool in the DC-Bawmore area. He has all the tools to play at this level. Combine him with. AJ, puts needed intensity for this team. The guys playin soft are a drain on the team, and we'll get hammered in the next few games if they lose their intensity.

Yes, if they continue to lose like they did vs indiana, u will find plenty football trolls to add their bullshit opinions, its much easier for people to be negative in virtual reality, than it is to b positive and supportive. Go Bucks!

OK, I'm going to ask for the third time in the last couple days, why isn't Kam starting over Tate?

Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike!

Guess what day it is?

The day on 11W when someone starts making me smarter about basketball!

Thank You, Mike!

The videos forced closed my browser a couple of times & I had to help with dinner for the kids - damn distractions!

one of the clips against Indiana seemed to me that Kam might have had a bounce pass to Giddens for a dunk / foul - or both.  Is this just me arm chairing it?

i think on the last clip when it happened live - I thought Kam should have tried for a block, but now I'm not sure.

- thank you so much for this article!

Very good study.  I love the energy and confidence Kam is bringing off the bench. 

In the Indiana game, tOSU was badly outrebounded, and I think the 5th film clip shows one reason why.  After rolling off the pick, Giddens is in good position for the rebound, but IU's Bielfeldt hip checks and pushes Giddens from the middle of the lane to under the basket, probably 5-6 feet.  That is clearly a foul, and is something that the head of NCAA officials has been directed to clear up.  I think an article on CBS Sports (http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/eye-on-college-basketball/254...) provides a excellent description of what the NCAA is trying to do regarding the new rules and consistency in officiating.
