      He’s not a world beater with his athleticism. I think his hips are too high and this gives him a disadvantage in losing leverage against other posts. 

      But…I don’t think he’s hurting the team as much as some people on this board like to claim. I think he ads value. I’m glad he’s a Ute. Do I wish we had a Bogut or Poeltl in front of him, sure. but we don’t.

      He’s awful. I would never pass the ball to him because he probably wouldn’t catch it. I had high hopes for him, but so far he has been so frustrating to watch.

      I saw him open a lot around the cup. Guys see the double team but can’t see him. It is weird.

      He adds value to the team in his defensive stance and rebounding.  But his offensive moves in down post are awful and I cringe when he has the ball.   I think we have a better chance in scoring from the outside then him with ball down low post.  He’ll either travel or just throw up a brick.  I’m just baffled that he’s been with the program for 4 years now, and he hasn’t improve his post moves.

        The thing is… he HAS IMPROVED IMMENSELY. He was just historically terrible when he arrived

      He also chucked it 4 times in the second half alone to a guy that was clearly covered by a Cal player and can’t pass out of the low post to an open corner 3 shooter.

      His shooting percentage should be damn near 100%, because the only shots he should be taking are dunks and layups. He has zero outside game.  He gets outrebounded all the time. He threw the ball away at least twice tonight.  He’s bound to get some rebounds, just by default. He’s freaking 7 feet tall.  He’s horrible from the foul line. Did you notice who was in the game in crunch time tonight?  Small ball.

      He is the worst starting center we have had as far as I can remember

      The funny thing, he skipped his senior year in high school because he probably thought he was ready.

      i think his impact on our defense has always been largely undervalued by a great portion of our fan base. We’ve been incredibly bad on that end when he sits since jakob graduated

      Lets walk through a Jayce Johnson Possession…
      STEP 1- get the ball, he either catches or drops it and turns it over. U never know what ur gonna get its 50/50
      STEP 2- Make some weird post move
      STEP 3- Attract the double team and get it stolen/ jump ball or make a lousy pass.
      STEP 4- Shoot it, he will make it when hes wide open, but if he is contested in the slightest form, he will miss.
      BOTTOM LINE- He shouldnt shoot unless he is wide open. He is a mediocre rebounder and a good defender.

      He seams very uncoordinated, spastic if you will. Whenever the balls comes into him on the low post, I consider it a turnover in a matter of seconds.
