Coach praises former Purdue star Hummel

Thursday, February 07, 2013 10:37 pm
Eighth-year Purdue men's basketball caoch Matt Painter spoke with the media on Thursday regarding a number of topics.“We compound our mistakes. We don’t deal with adversity by being patient, by taking good shots, by not fouling at the other end. We want to do it all ourselves and play one-on-one basketball, get overly aggressive and foul somebody when they’re in the bonus, and breakdown on our defensive assignments. It is a by-product of our youth, but it is also by-product of immaturity because we just don’t have freshmen doing those things. We have everybody doing them.”“There’s no question that we’ll use him and I should’ve used him before with (walk-on Dru Anthrop) being out (with an injury). To summarize what he was able to do, it makes for good offense when people pass. If you’ve got a bunch of guys that are always looking to create their own shot, and that is all that they’re doing, it’s not good offense. Stephen came in there and got the ball in the post, he moved the basketball, he got a couple of rebounds, and he took a charge. He helped us beat Penn State. If we didn’t play him, I don’t think that we would’ve won.”“Are you talking about Rob Hummel? Because he’s an All-American. He’s one of the best players to ever play at Purdue. He meant as much to this program as any player. He might not have the same numbers or whatever, but his impact on this program was huge. You can never get enough substance on your team and he was a guy that was just oozing with it. He deserves this and more.”“For Terone, the most important thing is to be consistent. When you are consistent on a daily basis, your teammates and coaches respect you. That is something that he needs to continue to work on. Take care of business off of the court, working on your game, and saying the right things in the locker room. But leadership is an action. Leadership is not saying the right thing, leadership is doing the right thing. He’s really improved in those areas, but with that being said, he’s still got room for improvement.”
