"I'd say he has some more work to do, a lot more work to do," Mitchell said Tuesday afternoon. "He's really only practiced two times, and he was in two games. You could tell that his timing was off, his feel of the game was off. We recognized that from the beginning, but we felt he needed to play right away to give him as much time as possible to get his timing back. He wasn't in game shape at all. We had to take him out a lot of times. But he did bring a good defensive presence. He is a pretty good defender, and that's one of the areas where we were weak at. You might not be able to tell by the scores, but he did do a pretty good job in that area."
