I'd be interested in why he missed so many games. Injury or attitude related? Either way.... i know taking risks is important but we've had enough injury prone players lately.

We've had more than our fair share of attitude prone players too, and I'll be honest I think we need to avoid as many headaches as possible going forward. I'd almost rather this be injury related as bad as it is to say.

Speaking on attitude issues. Peyton Allen who played at Texas tech and then transferred to Wichita State before quitting has surfaced at UIS this season. He is listed as a junior and averaging 12.7 points. Amazing how a talented kid like that can have his career derailed because of attitude.

Where does it say he missed games? In his profile it says he started 28 out of 29 games.

It appears the games he is missing stats, the whole team is. Ex. 10/29/18 vs Shorter, nothing is listed for him. There is also no box or available stats. It's also missing his stats for the conference tournament games which he played.

He didn't have a good game in this one, last one posted, but the stats are available:
http://ghcchargers.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/boxscores/20190305_eo30.xml?view=boxscore

No stats from their last 2 games for anyone:
http://ghcchargers.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/boxscores/20190308_zphd.xml?view=boxscore
http://ghcchargers.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/boxscores/20190309_8h03.xml?view=boxscore

There is also nothing whatsoever for those first few October games.

Seems to me like a lot of missing information.

His team is 23-10.

ok, Per RR's post and the 33 total games, website is clearly missing some games.

We really need to consider whether we want a kid who's team keeps incomplete records online.

This isn't really fair. Allen experienced a tragedy similar to the one Jim Boehiem was recently involved in.
