Mark Lyons has the talent to become an absolute college basketball superstar, and that is exactly what he is on plenty of nights.
However, consistency is an issue with the former Xavier and current Arizona guard.
One game Lyons will score 20 points on 7-13 shooting (at Clemson) and the next he will put up four points with three turnovers (Southern Mississippi) or four points with four turnovers (Long Beach State).
Speaking of turnovers, they have been somewhat of a problem for the shooting guard playing in the point guard position. That was to be somewhat expected, but it will be difficult for the Wildcats to continue their undefeated run if Lyons is averaging three giveaways a game.
In fact, Lyons has an alarming assist-to-turnover rate of slightly below one. That means he has given the ball to the opposition more than he has set up his own teammates for baskets.
Not exactly the winning formula for a point guard.
If Lyons can find some consistency and cut down on the turnovers, Arizona is a legitimate Final Four threat.
