With my site basically hijacked for the past week by Dave Wannstedt, Dana Holgorsen, and Mike Haywood, this has been on the back burner a bit. I had been trying to get a post up on Talib Zanna, but the Post-Gazette beat me to it.
Talib Zanna's game has taken a hit since the Maryland game for whatever reason. Zanna doesn't know why:
The PG goes on to say that his production dip is coinciding with the return of Nasir Robinson, but Zanna is still getting plenty of minutes. He started the season looking better than expected, averaging nearly a double double through his first four games. Since then, he's only averaging about 3.5 points per game.
So what's amiss?
"I really don't know," Zanna said the other day. "I just have to keep playing my game. That's what coach is saying, try to be more focused."
Zanna said he has not lost his confidence, but his production clearly has dipped. He has not scored more than six points since that double-double against the Terrapins and has scored three points or fewer in five of the past seven games.
