Crutcher

Although Crutcher is playing basically at the same offensive efficiency as Scoochie during his Freshman year, I am not seeing the development in three key areas. Still think Crutcher will be a very good player the next 3.5 years, but would like to see improvement: (1) 3 point shooting -- he is 15/60 on the year and his shot selection is poor to atrocious. Yet he has taken the 3rd most threes on the team behind Baby D and Jordan Davis. Today he took a 24-25 foot 3 with more than 10 seconds on the shot clock and Jordan Davis wide open if he takes one extra pass, an easy obvious pass. Scoochie only shot 27% from 3 his Freshman year but he only took 62 shots all year and his shot selection from 3 was materially better. Yes Crutcher is getting more minutes. I do not understand why he has the green light from AG -- I would put two constraints on him: shoot from 22 feet or less between 6-15 seconds on shot clock (don't shoot wide open with more than 15 seconds) or shoot any 3 with 5 seconds or less. (2) Crutcher uses his hands on dribble drive defense and either gets beat or fouls. I know coaches must be working on this with him, but very little improvement IMHO. (3) He is shooting between 5-10% on floaters this year acknowledging he made one in each of the last 2 games. The shot is the equivalent of a turnover. Ban floaters if more than 5 seconds on shot clock. Again shot selection issues.

Crutcher is shooting on almost 18% of possessions when he is in the game versus 18% for Jordan Davis who is Dayton's 1st or 2ns most efficient offensive player depending how you look at it (I would argue 2nd beyond Josh). Davis' effective field goal percentage of 62% whereas Crutcher at 40%. Crutcher has taken more shots than Jordan this year (would also like Jordan to be more aggressive).

Again, I think Crutcher will improve and be a very good point guard (not at the Scoochie level ever), but would like to see some improvement the 2H of season on these theee areas. Did not mention turnovers as this is normal for Freshman IMHO to have ups and downs and his assist to turnover ratio is actually good. His 5 turnovers today part of growing pains.

From my mobile so apologize for typos.

I agree with you his 5 turnovers were very costly today and he shoots a few too many deep 3s, but how you can look at the UMass game and come away unimpressed by Crutcher, a Freshman Grant found in the 11th hour? I am pleased by where he is so far in his early career.

Basically, the way Crosby has played the last few games, it is very hard to have him at point for any extended period of time. His reverse layup against UMass was a thing of beauty, and very Scoochie-esque...

Should have watched his counterpart on Umass. 25 points, 4 asst, 1 turnover. An agressive player driven to win. Took the big shot for and undermanned squad in a tough environment. And he's only a sophomore. Now compare him to our guy who can't or won't penetrate, had a bad release on his outside shot ( not really a jump shot) and is not a catalyst. I hope he improves, but I think he is very unlikely to be the pg to lead us back to respectability. We need better players badly. Today with players like Crutch, we are Fordhamesque and the turnaround seems year away. For some, if we put Stephen Hawking in a Flyer Jersey they'd say he's doing well for an old guy with some issues.

We're #272/351 in 3PT FG%, but #21/351 in 2PT FG%. I feel pretty good when Darrell and Jordan are open for threes. Others not so much -- everyone else shoots a combined 24% from deep. The problem is not Crutcher's alone.

Frosh Stats:

JALEN CRUTCHER/SCOOCHIE SMITH
2PT FG%: .487/.416
3PT FG%: .250/.274
FT%: .778/.567
A/TO: 1.81/1.78

Lets not forget that Scoochie was also surrounded by infinitely more talent -- passing the ball to the likes of Jordan Sibert, Vee Sanford, Dyshawn Pierre, and Devin Oliver. All four of those guys would probably start on this year's team with Josh being the #5 man.

Here's Pipkins bio

2016-17 - Freshman: Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week (12/19) ... Made 33 appearances and started 28 contests ... Split his time between point guard and off-ball guard roles ... Provided 10.2 points, 2.3 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game ... Shot 34.0 percent overall (110-324), including 31.8 percent from beyond the arc (71-223) ... Hit 64.8 percent of his free throws (46-71) ... Owned a 1.51 assist-to-turnover ratio ... Began his collegiate career with 14 points, eight steals, four rebounds and three assists in the win over UMass Lowell (11/11) ... His eight steals against the River Hawks tied the program's single-game record ... Had 18 points and four steals at Ole Miss (11/14) ... Notched 11 points and six assists at Holy Cross (11/20) ... Earned 16 points, seven steals, six rebounds and two assists against UCF (12/3) ... Secured 20 points to go with two rebounds at Providence (12/10) ... Poured in a personal-best 27 points (9-17 FG, 8-14 3FG, 1-1 FT) with three assists, two steals and a pair of rebounds in the win over Kennesaw State ... His eight made field goals against Kennesaw State tied the program's single-game record ... Put in 12 points, ripped down five rebounds and dished out three assists at Georgia State (12/28) ... Secured a 16-point, five-rebound, three-assist outing at George Mason (1/4) ... Added 17 points, four rebounds and two steals during the win over Dayton (1/11) ... Notched 19 points, four rebounds and three steals in the win at Saint Joseph's (2/11) ... Followed with 16 points, three rebounds and three assists at Duquesne (2/15) ... Shot 63.6 percent (7-11) overall and had 19 points against Richmond (3/1) ... Scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (3-6 3FG) and a 2-for-2 showing at the foul line in the Atlantic 10 Championship First Round win over Saint Joseph's (3/8) ... Scored 14 points and had two assists in the season finale against St. Bonaventure (3/9).

Before UMass: 4-star recruit via ESPN … No. 7 in Illinois, No. 22 PG and No. 23 in Midwest region (ESPN) … 3-star recruit according to 247Sports and Rivals … No. 12 in Illinois and No. 45 at point guard (247Sports) … Played AAU for Mac Irvin Fire … Chose UMass over Bradley, DePaul, La Salle, Northern Illinois and Valparaiso, among others.

So, ESPN had him as a 4 star, others a 3 star. No one had Crutcher as a 4 star, and he's only 15 games into his freshman year. Also, they may be totally different types of players, so I'm not sure a direct comparison is appropriate, especially at this time in the careers.

Over the last 5 - 8 years the A-10 had had a multitude of lightening quick guards who have displayed the ability to penetrate (and score) -- especially against the Flyers. Even in OOC games we seem to run into guards like this -- even on low mid-majors that come to the Arena for buy games. Who was the last Flyer who had those characteristics and abilities (Scoochie was not lightening quick)? Kevin Dillard is the only one I can think of and I don't put even him in the group that consistently have left Flyer defenders in their wake.

Crutcher release on his shot seems low, don't know if it's fixable but that might make it harder to get off contested 3s

I guess I’m in the minority here; I’m very pleased/impressed with Crutcher. SS was not lightening quick. Crutcher is much fast. SS was crafty, made some ridiculous moves in the paint when we needed it; ditto Crutcher from what we’ve seen already. SS had a set shot release that got better and better. We see the same with Crutcher.

I’d say their freshman years stack up very similarly and by far SS had much more experienced players around him. Crutcher will go down as one of the better pg’s to ever play for the Flyers. Would everbody please take your anxiety meds and chill. This freshman class is going to be special but it takes time.

Crutcher will never be a pipkins he does not have that kind of quickness!! He may become an adequate 3 point shooter but will never have the quicknees to get in the lane like Pipkins!

Everyone on this team has the green light from 3. It is evidenced by the positioning in the offensive sets. It is evidenced by watching the guys in warmups. They all take a shooting session from behind the arc. Back in the day if you weren't a 3 point shooter you didn't even practice the **** things. Our guys all practice them and all shoot them. That makes it pretty clear to me that while some shooters are preferred, when push comes to shove...every last guy has the authority to shoot the three when they feel they are open.

Crutcher has a good shot but he also has a "not so friendly D1" release. When he is unguarded he can nail them from anywhere. That was observed on his film from high school and is observed today. OSU Flyer mentions it. The release starts low on the shoulder, which is typical of players that probably started to pull from deep at a young age and weren't strong enough to do so. Now is mechanics offer a lower release. Baby D's release is high and he elevates on his jumper. That is why he can get off the shots that he does with ease.

Yes...Scooch was a great player. He also was surrounded by better players his freshman year and was also playing in a totally different type of system. Other than them both being freshman point guards, that is where the comparisons end. Had Scooch played in the "green light" type of system that AG has, I don't know if his numbers would have been any better that Crutcher's in terms of shooting.

I like Crutcher and I think he's going to turn out to be a really nice player. He is also well setup to be a fan favorite as the years go on.

That said, we have not won any games because of him. His job is to not turn the ball over and make an occasional shot. AG doesn't ask him to really drive this team or run the offense the way a PG normally would. The fact that we don't have a PG who can run this team has been a huge problem this year.

Crutcher will continue to get better this year and all the playing time sets him up well for his Sophomore year. But right now, he's not doing us a lot of favors.

but I wish he would pass the ball to JC more. UD's inside game is their strength and they don't know it yet. The season is half gone.

And here's the part that makes my head explode: Dayton has attempted 369 3FG and 440 2FG. These guys need to figure out which side of their bread to butter. Not only would this eliminate some of the Flyers' least efficient options, but would in theory increase the number of FTA.

Chris - you should feel good about Baby D from behind the arc at 41%, but he's only shooting 42% on 2FGA. Baby D has improved his game, but he should be mainly attacking aggressive close-outs with the dribble and not waving guys off to ISO. His A:TO ratio (<1.0) also supports this assertion.

This may have been alluded to elsewhere, but Cunnigham is not only shooting 67% - he's shooting 73% inside the arc. Can we give all of Josh's 3FGA to Baby D and all of Baby D's 2FGA to Josh?

I'd love to know the splits on Dayton catch-and-shoot triples vs off-the-dribble. Feels like the freshman especially are excellent when pass comes from inside-out. Right now post players aren't looking to make that pass b/c the post feeds are so infrequent. If this team wants to unlock a post-season run it's going to come from a commitment to playing inside-out.

I listened to Flyer Feedback after the last game and according to Brooks Hall, which of course I know we all know more than him, the team certainly understands the ball needs to go inside, we just aren't getting it done. Brooks talked about watching practices and watching AG and staff constantly harp about getting the ball inside. He indicated we are successful getting the ball inside in practice, but the guards are not penetrating in games to the point they can break down the defense and get the ball inside. Part of this is obviously the defense they are working against in practice is not at the level of the defense they are seeing in games, meaning the success in practice is not translating to success in games.

Some on this board believe AG has no offensive scheme, I believe Brooks, who attends practices, when he says the offensive scheme is there and is a solid offense, we just aren't executing the scheme in games.

Taking the above and looking at it from the outside...

The post is open. I watch Cunningham get open time after time. The ball doesn't make it there. It isn't a Crutcher thing, is is an "everyone thing". Josh will get the guy on his top hip...feed to the left hand and he has the baseline to himself.

The looks on the faces of the players trying to get it into the post remind me of guards I played with back in the day. They wouldn't throw the post feed and had a frustrated look on their face as if they really wanted to get it inside. Not the case.

The offense seems to rely on quickness and no patience. The guys on the floor aren't able to make the quick read, so they are already moving to option 2 or 3 while passing up 1. It was evident by Trey on the last play of the UMass game. Option 1 was completely abandoned. This happens possession after possession in the half court.

The post feed isn't there and then the post leaves his good position on the block with an uncovered baseline to come up and set a P&R that isn't executed. Then it transitions to a kick out or reversal. Our ball side offense in the 2 man game isn't good. The buckets are coming from put backs, transition, reversals/skips, and the occasional first option...the post or P&R.

There is no patience. They seem to sacrifice quickness for passing up initial options. You can play quick and fast while patient.

Thanks. Solid info.

Its gonna take the freshman a little while to adjust to this level of play, especially when they are being asked to take over a much larger role than anyone, them included, ever anticipated.

The game will slow down for them (Crutch, JDavis) eventually and they'll be more confident about dictating the flow of the offense rather than settling for what the D gives them, but its gonna take time.

And, I don't mind saying that seeing a Crutcher thread after the UMass game was pretty **** surprising IMO. Of all the Flyers on the court Saturday, he and Cunningham were the only bright...well dim...spots on the team. The rest of the gang is way, way more responsible for the soiled sheets.

And, I disagree about Crutcher's future as a PG. I think he's gonna be a fine player and will continue to grow into the position. His shot needs work, but he's got the skills to play the point.

When I watch the games, all I see is the PG dribbling with a big coming to set a side screen, then passing to a wing or continuing to slide to the outside. We don't set solid screens and even if the screen is good, the dribbler is not cutting hard off of it. I rarely see sets where the PG either attempts to penetrate without a screen, or passes to a wing who has a better entry angle. If the wing does get the pass, he typically just reverses field back to the center and usually a big comes to set a screen again.

I don't see a lot of this same movement when I watch other teams. I see a lot of passes to the wings who then look to dump it low onto the block. Then maybe a high screen to free a guy to receive a pass back from the block for an open 3, or the big makes a move to the basket.

Once he puts on some more weight I think he'll be more effective attacking the basket & in traffic. That'll open opportunities for others.

With the shot I wonder if changing his release point is a realistic possibility

NOt sure AG doesn't have red lights and green lights for some players. "Crutch" should have a RED LIght for 3s. With one caveats.... last few secs of shot clock and nothing available.

Have you seen anyone red light a shot? Unless it's been a 4 or 5...every single 1,2, or 3 lets them fly.

Every last player has the green light for a 3. As I mentioned above, if they they didn't, they wouldn't be shooting the hell out of them in warmups.

Tweaking shot mechanics is an option. I think he needs more than a tweak which is problematic. There are successful college/NBA players with funky shot techniques - AG needs to work with him to minimize contested shots with such a low release.

Not acting like I know the answer to this question - I’m just asking. But how bad was the outside shooting form of Karl “The Mailman” Malone when he first entered the NBA? He shot below 50% from the line as a rookie and, by his 4th season, he was regularly over 75% (and he became a reliable option on the “pick and pop” with John Stockton). Did his form change all that radically, or was it a case of repetition building muscle memory?

Also, I seem to remember hearing something about Larry Bird having to recraft his shot after he broke a finger.

Just saying, learning a new shooting technique isn’t unheard of. It’s not horribly common, but it has happened before.

I think some of the problems with Crutcher’s release will improve with strength and conditioning. He seems to labor a little too much to get the ball to the rim from behind the 3-pt line. In short, daily sessions with rollo will do wonders for this young man.

I agree a little more strength will be a big help. Is Crutcher's shot now that different than Scoochie's as a freshman?

I could see improved strength and conditioning improving Crutcher's defense and ability to score in the paint. But I can't believe his 3point shot release has anything to do with strength. Any college kid is plenty strong enough to shoot a 3 pointer. My 4th grade daughter on the other hand...her shot form falls apart outside of 8'-10'.

Yes but not really....just saying...there are workarounds that are abundant.

And within the rules... players have 8 hours per week of contact for a total of 8 weeks as long as players maintain a certain gpa or were enrolled in summer classes.

Now...you get 2 hours 4 days a week...with coaching staff...

Add to that the time without coaching staff, such as "non-mandatory" court time where payers are held accountable by team captains. The 2 hours per day gets stretched to 3+ real quick and all within the rules. This is more time than the staff sees their players in season, sans games, travel, and rehab.

There is a reason why OSU football players say that they have more work on them in the off season than in season...that's where you put together championship teams.

Definitely true. However altering an outside shot versus practicing a free throw shot are very different things.

More movement in an outside shot. Often a different release point.
And for oomph factor it all changes some, from how deep or close one is shooting. Many players, Scooch is a perfect example, is more of a SET shot from 3. But that often changes on drives and 15 footers obviously.

Rebuilding a shot is a pretty intensive process especially if you're starting over. Michael Kidd-Gilchrest I read spent hours & hours with a shooting coach. The time is there to practice but I'm skeptical the hours are with a coach that can help rebuild your mechanics from scratch. You need feedback on what you're doing vs shooting in a gym alone.

To do it effectively it sounds like you really need someone working with you day in & out with a good amount of feedback. Minor problems I think could be corrected but I look at his shot as something in need of a total rebuild.

Football you do more work in the offseason because those guys go through a rigorous strength training, conditioning regime

My experience was (assuming you're playing ball all the time)... the stronger you get, the easier the 3 pt point line gets - range increases.

Of course, that won't change his release completely... but I think the added strength will allow him to release the ball higher.

As a model look at how much London Warren improved his shot--- not. It's very difficult. Beyond his less than optimal accuracy Crutcher's low release leads to getting blocked and forces him to shoot from further back to avoid getting blocked. At 25% from three he just shouldn't be taking many ( maybe any), but 61% of his shots are 3's, and they go in at roughly half of Jordan Davis's shots %,

Then there is Kyle Davis.

17%
22%
34%
40%

37% the last two years combined. Fans were pretty much saying the same things you just said.

For all you haters out there, Crutcher was 2 rebounds away from UDs first triple double. I guess 10 dimes and 0 turnovers wasn't bad either.

Agreed, open shots usually off of good ball movement. Didn't seem like anything was forced or contested

Only he still has a low release point. But he did his thing and it was working so for this game everything was ALL RIGHT!

One game does not make a season. If he plays at a fraction of last night all season he had a good freshman year. If he continues to shoot 3s at a horrible rate then we're right back to where we were last week

That might be the stat of the night...that no UD player has ever had a triple double.

Yes, just about everything happened within the flow of the offense. Was a beautiful thing to see.

Since 00-01, Crutcher was the closest to a triple double with 8 rebounds. Previously Dillard had a double double with 7 steals. Noone else since 00-01 had a double double with 7 or more in a third stat.

I have always been a purist when it comes to coaching shooting, but some kids just get into bad habits, but it still works. In the end do the shots go in, can he shoot when he is tired and can he shoot in the clutch?

Scoochie's form sort of annoyed me. Too much of a set shot. They went in and could he shoot in the clutch. That Davidson overtime display last year was unbelievable.

So in terms of Crutcher, as a freshmen, darn good!

After last nights game, Crutcher has an A/TO ratio of 2.17.

Long way to go in the season, but he has a shot to break the UD Fr A/TO record, 2.22, held by Jack Zimmerman ('76-77).
