In Bo's place, Siena have been running with a makeshift point guard tandem, consisting of midseason pickup Marko Jaric and Greek combo guard Nikos Zisis. Neither is the ball handler that McCalebb was, nor close to the same level of athlete. Yet both were (or rather, are) capable ball movers and facilitators, big point guards with decent enough defense (as long as they aren't faced against any opposing speedsters) and acceptable outside shooting. Jaric has not had an especially good year - be it due to rust from so long on NBA benches, or due to the fact he's now 32, Jaric has been very turnover prone for Siena, and wasn't especially effective as the anticipated stabilising ball handler and playmaker in McCalebb's absence. Nevertheless, with Bo now back, it should no longer matter.
