Raise your hands if you were a Duane Washington basher earlier this season? He took crazy unfair criticism (m)

Many forget he was playing a lot of extra minutes due to CJ being out, and OSU wins a lot of games without a true PG playing.
Coach Holt knew he has to give DW more breaks to get the bets out of him. With CJ finding his stride we are seeing that also help Duane as well.
Duane is a great shooter when open. He has forced a lot at times, but there are not many on this team who can create off of the dribble outside of CJ and himself.
He still has lots of room to improve on his Defense, getting stronger through contact, becoming an even better distributor when driving (improving but more to go), and not trying to make the circus shots as much.
Duane was always way better than what this Board gave him credit for even before the last few games where he was sensational.
