“COURTSIDEWITH SETH DAVIS” NEWS AND NOTES
Hosted by college basketball insider Seth Davis, COURTSIDE WITH SETH DAVIS is aone-hour, fast-paced program focusing on the latest developments, the mostintriguing storylines and the inside scoop from the world of collegebasketball.

(JEFF GOODMAN ON DUKE):
They had so many guys in different roles this year. I think AustinRivers is still adjusting to being ‘the guy’ and his teammates areadjusting to him. He’s got to learn to be a better teammate. And theydon’t have a point guard. Ultimately, I think it comes down to that. Youput Seth Curry at the point guardspot, he’s just not a point guard. So now they’re going with Quinn Cook. He’ll be better, buthe’s probably still a year away from being a top-flight point guard inthe ACC. We haven’t even come to their defensive deficiencies. Theycan’t guard anyone in the perimeter. So I think there’s a lot thereright now for Duke to get to thatelite level. They’re not an elite team this year.

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

(ST. JOHN’S COACH STEVE LAVIN ONNURIDEEN LINDSAY TRANSFER):
Each recruit, each player and the relationship you have with the playeris unique. So there are going to be times like in any aspect of life whereit’s just not a good fit. It doesn’t necessarily have to beacrimonious, 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 thinksometimes it’s not a good fit, you have that amicable divorce and you moveforward and try to find the right fit. No one is going to bat 1.000 inrecruiting and not every school is going to be the perfect fit for a particularplayer. So what you try to do, is you hope that the law of averages at the endof the day, play out in your favor.

(BAYLOR COACH SCOTT DREW ON SOPHOMOREPERRY 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. Whenhe’s 28, he’s going to be a lot better than he is right now. Butfrom a coaching standpoint, you couldn’t ask for a better teammate, abetter person. And because of that, sometimes he is too unselfish.
