Reminds me of Joe Harris at the end of the 2012-13 season


especially after that spectacular performance against Duke -- one of the best in this program's history.

There were two factors in our collapse following that victory:
1) Harris was just exhausted by the end of the season; and,
2) His teammates fell into a "sit back and let Joe do it" mode. It was as though they saw him in Superman mode and from then on deferred to him even rather than play aggressively themselves.

I saw that with LP this year. He'll contend for best PG in UVa history because he made everyone who played with him better. Exponentially better.

However, there were moments at the end of this season in which we fell into "sit back and let London do it" mode. I thought our VT loss was probably the best example of this. (And we would probably have won that if Hokie engineers had not come up with the perfect rim flange!)

By the end of the season, London was out of gas. He wasn't getting a lot of help, however.
