    Is this a result of the block/charge arc and freedom of movement?

All things important, but he is getting increasingly frustrated that they don't try to utilize him underneath the hoop no matter how hard he posts up.
      Every high school game I've seen in the last 5 years is the same. Nobody teaches post play, so nobody feeds the post, so nobody wants to play in the post and it becomes a vicious circle.

      Every tall kid thinks he's Kevin Durant now and all these rule changes that Jay Bilas, et al, want to make (widening the lane, shortening the shot clock, moving the 3 pt line back) are just just going to make it worse.

          Agreed, but McCloud was ONE GUY. We should have few penetrator types on our team every year, not just one every four recruiting classes. You lose the one guy, you’re basically left with your set shooter types that are pretty easy to defend.

            And let me guess...on pick n rolls, the ball handler thinks the screen is for him and never looks for your wide open son? That’s what the Panthers do when our bigs screen

              Journalists who state their opinion as if it were fact are a pet peeve of mine. Jay Bilas is one of the worst.

                Actually... yes.
                "...the Northern Iowa men's basketball team reached the ultimate highs before hitting a devastating low. Unexpected success, followed by unimaginable failure. And they owned it -- all of it -- for the world to see. Like men. Like leaders. Like champions -- in a way no tournament bracket could ever define."
