He's shooting 40 percent from the field. 35 percent from 3. He's getting bailed out with Free Throw calls which rookies don't get in the NBA. He's just not a good scorer right now. Certainly not a scorer worthy of the number 1 pick. Blame the team. Blame the situation. But he's not a high level scorer. He's a chucker getting bailed out by free throws.Edwards is the best player as a freshman on a bad team and literally every game plan is designed to try and stop him.
Izzo is one of the best coaches in America. He was throwing everything he could at Edwards in the 2nd half to slow him down.
He ends with 37 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 blocks, and 2 assists. Oh and 7/16 from 3 with a perfect 8-8 from the free throw line.
But please, tell me again why he’s not the #1 pick.
