I don't get how people don't see that he wasn't ever going to put up big numbers here. Why? Because no one really does! We don't have guys that put up 20 and 10, not because they're not capable but because production tends to be more balanced. And there was a real possibility that he wouldn't get much out of another year here. Without a lockout, even if he doesn't get drafted he still has a chance at making an NBA roster. If not he'll go play in Europe where he could've ended up next year anyway.
What if he did come back and he put up the same numbers as he did this year, played a similar game, and ended up in exactly the same position he's in now?? Then what? He's a year older with nothing to show for it. I don't know why people just can't be happy for him.
Depends on what you define as big numbers. Almost no one in college averages 20 points a game you have a few guys on mid-majors who carry their teams that do, but major college players don't average that much high major stars average 15-18pts a game.(17 players average 20+ points this year 3 from high major schools 2 if you don't count maryland. That's 3 players out of ~4,472 DI players) Jason averaged 14pts a game this year, but averaged over 15 most of the year. Hollis could've come back and done that and I'd have considered that putting up big numbers especially if it included a handful of 20+ point games.
