I don't entirely disagree. I mentioned he's arguably our second best defender, but every time I see him with the ball it seems like he just kind of loses control and plays too fast. Josh Banks had been doing it for a few years and finally this year he slowed the game down and looks way more in control and look at what it's done for him.
I agree that the only way for him to develop is to play him more, but that's such a tricky situation because he replaces someone who can shoot and score better than him. It's just unfortunate because our guard play is so strong with Nunn and Watkins. What I will say though, is Kern has earned and deserves more of Zeb's time.
Like I said, I am rooting for this kid and I also said he has Curry-like potential as an upperclassmen, but we can't miss the forest for the trees and get caught up in what he might be able to do. The bottom line is, in his (very) limited time, he has shown an inability to put the ball in the basket whether that be the field or free throw line honestly. Our starting guards are just too crucial to our offense to be subbing him in for them for significant portions of a game in my opinion. Especially gearing up for conference play.
