The Sexy Dex Complex:

AW can't see the forest for the Cardinal killer, Dexter Pittman.  Granted, the Miami game was a poor showing (1-3 FG but also 6 rebs in 8 minutes), but he had a tough matchup against that bald guy who made his moves from the top of the key, and with Miami showing us athletic defense, the guards revert to zero passes down to the post.  PB pretty much made these points already, but they are worth repeating.  

AW just doesn’t have the appreciation for the work of a big man.  How come other schools have big fat post players who are slow yet still dominate college ball, but Texas can’t? Since when is it poor play to have a center come off the bench and make the opponents center hit his free throws?   We have lost some crucial games this year when our bigs were out bigged, ala Wisconsin and Michigan State.  The only reason we weren’t slaughtered worse at A&M was Dexter Pittman came into to stop the carnage.  

Maybe I do have blinders on a little because Dex came in the year after we lost to LSU and Big Baby, and I saw him as our answer inside to a dominating big man.  So when I see him turn and punch one, after a real post move toward the basket, or pick up a big O rebound by pushing a crowd of defenders under the rim, I just get excited and forgive some of his faults.  I am really excited to see what happens Friday.
