I still believe that Chris Wright can be a better cog in this offense and not a monkey wrench. But that is on him. Something about this team has to change and change soon or this is going to be a lost opportunity during a season where we have the talent to push for a Final Four spot.
Wright is the Hoyas' point guard, but he isn't the guy that they run their offense through. That would be Greg Monroe, who proved why with 19 points, eight boards, and six assists last night. Wright, essentially, is a scoring guard trapped in a point guard's body. He doesn't have the mentality or the leadership to, when things are going badly, make a change in what the Hoyas are doing. He's not a vocal leader, and he's not a guy that will get on his teammates if they aren't hustling defensively or are taking bad shots.
The Hoyas, as a result, don't have that coach on the floor. They don't have that leader, the stopper that can get them running their sets. Wright is just as likely to force a dumb shot early in the shot clock as anyone on the team
