Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Marquette forward Lazar Hayward "finally steps up," and that this was the Lazar Hayward Coach Buzz expected to see in the season opener. Exact quote.

In other words, doing all the stuff he didn't do in Marquette University's opener."
"Finally" = one game.
Ow, my brain.
