The upside

Queta should realize after this game that he needs more time in school to improve before going against elite talent.

In the off season, Queta should pay for some private lessons with Rudy Gobert. Also, for an hour a day Queta should run a drill where all he does is hold on to the ball with two hands while someone tries to bat it out. Hand strength and foot work to finish at the rim and this guy will be an All - American.

Queta needs to hit the weights, he Has weak hands and has no lower body strength. I think he has great footwork and shooting touch

And footwork... he doesn’t need Rudy Gobert. He needs Nate Harris.

Look how much he improved this year. He got better and better and learned quickly how to stay in the game. This kid is special and a competitor. He will do whatever he needs to I’m sure of it, he definitely doesn’t need my advice. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching him compete this year.

And/or Tai Wesley. He did more despite his height disadvantage because of footwork and spacing than anyone I’ve seen.

I agree Queta needs to get better at holding onto the ball. Hope he practices catching entry passes a couple hundred times a day until next season.

I should say hand strength with the foot work to finish at the rim. Working with someone like Gobert to strengthen him up. He's so close to perfection once he gets that strength at the rim.

To be clear, I think he has progressed a ton this year, and I think he's just getting started. Selfish me hopes he sticks around to keep improving, and I think he for sure gives us at least 1 more year now.

He needs improvement, yes - and for selfish reasons I'd love to see him stay. But he'll improve faster as a pro than as a student.
There are so many more resources available to professionals. NCAA rules limit what's available to students.

The same can be said for Sam. He lost the ball quiet a bit as well and looked timid at times

That was my biggest take away from the game - Queta has a lot of room to grow. He looked scared , and confused trying to go up against their bigs.

Looking forward to next year and hopefully a different result in the Tournament.

Loved the Aggie crowd, and our seats were unbelievable!

I bet would could pay Nate more than he's making coaching girls softball.

I don't think Sam looked timid but he was definitely frustrated and he let his frustration affect his aggressiveness.
