Geffen for President (or at least Point Guard)

One of the High Roller's biggest gripes over the last month or so has been the lack of playing time for Bryan Geffen. Frustrated with the point play of Brian Macon (as so many of us are), the High Roller has openly called for his replacement by Geffen. Honestly, I think the two players stack up pretty evenly in most areas: quickness, ability to drive, shooting and passing are all pretty close. But obviously, something is wrong with our offense with Macon at the helm. He's gotten better since the beginning of the year, but we still aren't able together any semblance of an offensive push. The question is, would things change at all with Geffen getting more PT?

Well, the numbers don't lie. The two games in which Geffen did not play, home losses to Albany and Binghamton, we scored a pathetic 47 points each time. Since then, we have won all three of our games (Stony Brook, Vermont, and Hartford), and Geffen was a major part of each. He averaged 9 points in the three games, including his game-high 15 versus Hartford.

Point is, let's continue to get Geffen some time running the point. I like the way he runs the offense, he's a creative passer, and the kid can even shoot the rock pretty well. Not that we need any more shooting or anything...

I think that Geffen is much better at making cuts and drives than Macon. At least he tries, because it doesn't seem like Macon ever drives.

Just once I'd like to see Geffen start at the point, just to shake things up since our offense isn't playing up to it's potential. As far back as I can remember, we've never really had a high scoring point guard (unless you count Chaz, but I guess he was more of a shooting guard) and I think that Geffen has the potential to do that.
