James hurting Marquette's chances

March, 22, 2009
BOISE, Idaho -- Is Maurice Acker that bad?

During the first half, coach Buzz Williams has opted for a half-healthy Dominic James over a perfectly healthy Acker, and it's been a mistake.

James has been a liability on both sides of the court. He can't keep up with Missouri players on defense and offensively, he's not attacking the basket like he did before he broke his foot.

At best he's a motivator and a general on the court, but he's added nothing in terms of actually helping his team win.
