Listener of the Streets (6/7)

  1. Lol. Great minds... Don't get me wrong, I'd love love love a stream of the game, but think it's understandable that there isn't one. I'm actually a little more shocked that there is no radio for the exhibition. Feels like we have had radio for exhibitions in the past, but I could very well be misremembering.
  2. You're clearly good with writing long diatribes recapping soccer, but seem to struggle a bit with reading comprehension. I said "in the Tweet itself" not in the linked article. Way more people are going to see that Tweet than will actually click on the link. Would have been nice for the Ambush to show SLU some love by putting "The Ambush have signed former #Billikens forward..." instead of not referencing SLU in the Tweet at all.
  3. Xavier's schedule doesn't have TV listed for their exhibition against Ferris State on November 5: https://goxavier.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule Ditto Marquette's exhibition vs Bowie State on Nov 4: https://gomarquette.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2021-22 and DePaul's exhibition vs Montevallo: https://depaulbluedemons.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule Dayton lists radio, but no TV for their exhibition vs Cedarville on Nov 1: https://daytonflyers.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2021-22 Gonzaga DOES have TV listed for their 2 exhibitions: https://gozags.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2021-22 Creighton's exhibition is on FloHoops: https://gocreighton.com/sports/mens-basketball/schedule/2021-22 I'd prefer it gets streamed and I think it is fair to ask about it, but it's hardly unacceptable to stream an exhibition game.
  4. FYI Steph Curry's sophomore season at Davidson he shot 48/44/89, so he wasn't that far off from a 50/40/90 season and still hit Majerus 180. Curry did that on 18 FGA/game compared to Lee's 9. I don't think Lee is better than Perkins, but I do think he's the most underrated guy in the A10 by most folks. None of the guys doing the 3 bid league podcast player rankings even seemed to consider him for the top 5 in the league. They acted like the top 5 without question was Lofton, Osun, Perkins, Gilyard, and Golden in some order. As the Athletic points out, Lee's shooting line last season was pretty absurd and he was only a sophomore. I'm not sold on his ability create for himself and I don't think he's a stud on defense, but I'd still put him up there or potentially ahead of some of those guys. Especially considering I think guys like Golden, Gilyard & Lofton have hit their ceiling alread.
  5. Why didn't the Ambush put anything about him being a SLU alum in the Tweet itself? Go rag on them for not giving any publicity to SLU.
  6. Oh man, good observation. I didn't know much about any of the other guys on the roster. Really weird they'd load up so heavy on guards and wings with only Jamie Echenique (6'11") as the only player above 6'7". I have to imagine there will be more movement to balance out the roster as training camp goes on, but don't follow G-League close enough to know for sure. I'd like Goodwin to be the primary ball-handler & a key offensive piece for his development. On the bright side, I actually think he'll be able to showcase his skills that will be able to make an impact for an NBA team better on a roster with a bunch of smaller guys. Goodwin can be a Bruce Brown type undersized big on this roster. If he can prove he can defend up & down the roster, grab rebounds, and be a good secondary playmaker hopefully that impresses NBA teams enough to give him a shot in that role.
  7. Exactly, I don't have a problem with people asking / tweeting at the SLU AD about streaming the game. It shows there is a demand out there for it & perhaps will get them to change their plans in the future.
  8. Not exactly news, but Goodwin is on the Capital City GoGo's training camp roster: https://capitalcity.gleague.nba.com/news/go-go-announce-training-camp-roster/
  9. Keys to the game: -Don't let Gilyard force (commit) too many (unforced) turnovers -Wear them down with our depth Richmond only goes 6 guys deep (who knows about Rockhurst's depth, but we should play our entire roster to get them some minutes) -Defend the 3 ball Sherrod, Golden, Gilyard, and Burton can shoot (Rockhurst's only hope is to chuck up 3s and pray) -Dominate the glass Richmond is weak on the boards (any guys Rockhurst has with size are probably total stiffs)
  10. If the A10 could somehow trade UMass for Wichita State that would be a move I'd be on board with.
  11. Thanks! All credit for cuteness goes to my wife.
  12. Agreed. UMass basketball has fallen off in recent years as well. Even with A10 POY candidate Tre Mitchell on the roster the past couple years, they weren't that good. This is cherry-picking, but UMass hasn't been in the top 100 in KenPom ratings since 2014. The only other A10 teams they share that misfortune with are Fordham, George Mason, and LaSalle.
  13. GDT: Riockhmondurst Close enough.
  14. Here it is on the (at the time) 3 year old who was probably wearing 2T clothes. 5 year old in back is also wearing one, but you can't see it in the pic.
  15. Seems like an appropriate place to share this if you're looking to hear from Claggs: I'm not sure if he'll weigh in on his considering transferring & where after Grawer's firing, but worth a listen. You could always tweet at the show and ask them to ask Claggs about it.
