Malik Monk, who played more minutes than anyone, failed to grab a single rebound Tuesday night against LSU.
On Saturday, Malik Monk, who played more minutes than anyone, failed to grab a single rebound against Florida.
That is now two consecutive games and 77 minutes of basketball action without a rebound for Monk. He last got a rebound with two minutes to go in regulation against Georgia a week ago.
Now please tell me how it is humanly possible for the most athletic player on the court to not have a rebound. He should accidentally have two or three fall in his lap over the course of two games, especially with the minutes he logs; yet Monk has zero boards in his last 77 minutes.
After the game, Coach Cal said, “If he’s not going to rebound the ball, he is going to have to be in there less.”
That’ll never happen, but good grief there’s no excuse to be so bad on the glass. He must literally be trying to avoid the basketball after a missed shot. There’s no other explanation.
