  1. I would enjoy them bringing back cursive "Billikens" as an alternate uni.
  2. My best source on Taylor Twellman said he was such a fk up at Maryland that - despite his stellar on field play - he was asked not to come back (combination of grades, off the field behavior) He went to Germany (Munich 1860) and couldn't advance from the reserve minor league team, then promptly came back to the states and led the MLS in scoring his first year...which is an amazing comeback story...but his career was short Regardless, in December of 2016 Taylor Twellman went on a media tour boosting the orignal (Dave Peacock) MLS bid and Twellman said on the radio that "If St Louis gets an MLS team, the Blues will be in trouble"...which was a ludicrous statement in the moment, but is even more ludicrous now. Good kid. Bounced back from adversity to play at a high level. Victim of lack of concussion protocol. Advocate for better concussion protocol. U-High what what. But let's not act like he's any kind of authority on sheeeeet. I had to turn it off when he was the first speaker. I can't take him seriously.
  3. From what I understand, he's basically getting paid to be a practice player through the summer and in camp. If things go well, he'll sign a better deal down the line. The Pelicans will be a tough roster to crack, but Bess will get a chance to measure up daily against a talented group of young players and their summer league games will be the most watched of any team because of Zion. He's really there in case other players get hurt or don't play with enough defensive intensity (which would be the case no matter what team he signed with).
  4. re: Yuri I hope he lives up to the hype/potential. I've long believed that having a quality play maker the most valuable asset in basketball. Until he shows it against regular season D1 competition, he's a prospect. Period. re: Jacobs I expected more from him this year. If he wants to transfer, fine. If he wants to stay, fine. I'm of the opinion you can't have too much depth when it comes to ball handling guards.
  5. As someone who called out Jordan Goodwin at times, I will say he has raised his performance over the last 8 games The FT shooting obviously needs to improve, but those are respectable FG % from 2 and 3 and 9 bounds (4 offensive) per game is sick...they would absolutely not have made the dance without his contribution and most encouragingly he was making good decisions in transition and wasn't afraid to shoot from range (the 3 he made before the half on Sunday was huge) still, he needs to get better at scoring in the half court sets as we're losing our top 2 scorers, but I do concur he's trending up
  6. I just noticed that through Selection Sunday, Javon Bess leads all of D1 in minutes played...
  7. I'd be fine with him joining the club Sunday evening... Bess, Burns, Justin Love, and Donnie Dobbs are the only 2-year Billikens to get to 900. Roland Gray and Monroe Douglass were each over 900 points scored through their 2nd season. Kwamain had 899 through his soph year.
  8. No boozing either...and how about we lift the limit on reactions, Steve?
  9. Bonnies 13-0 run to close out the half 29-27 Rhode up 2
  10. We want to play the teams that don't go very deep on the bench. Bonnies had 3 guys play the entire 40 yesterday and another go 37. Davidson will be the tougher game, regardless.
  11. Over the last month (8 games) Isabell's averaging 22.5 PPG and shooting 53.5% from beyond the arc...after averaging 10.9 PPG on 24.2% from 3 during the first 24 games
  12. Au contraire... We're losing our top 2 scorers, so regardless of how things go the rest of the way, we need Goodwin to polish his offensive game for 2019-20. Even if Goodwin plays out of his mind for the next 2 weeks including the NCAA tournament, there's a 57 game sample where he's averaged 10.9 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 3.8 APG, on 38.4% FG, 24.2 3P%, 59.2 FT% - we need better than that next year.
  13. Jordan - J-O-R-D-A-N - same spelling as Michael Jordan - the greatest basketball player of all time. Disappointed - D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-E-D - as in we're all disappointed in a tied for 6th conference finish.
