Honeycutt conflicted

Tyler Honeycutt is conflicted.

He is a passer at heart, wants to find the open man, unselfish to a fault.

Yet he sees four points on four attempts against Oregon – after 18 points and 10 attempts two days before against Oregon State – and he knows neither are enough.

“I think I should’ve scored more than four points against Oregon, but I still helped get us back into the game, passing, rebounding,” Honeycutt said on Tuesday, after his 13 rebound, nine assist performance Saturday night. “Sometimes I kinda question myself why I didn’t take more shots. I was playing on the inside a lot, and they were kinda switching zones, so there weren’t as many high-post touches. When I was playing the perimeter, I made some passes. I probably should’ve scored more.”

He stops short of lamenting his nine assists, though.

“I definitely look at that as a good thing,” the Sylmar high product said. “If they’re assists, someone’s scoring off them. I only had one turnover, which is pretty good, after averaging 2, 3, 4 over the last couple games. It was good to have that many more assists than turnovers.”
