  1. Hargrove and Collins combined for 14 turnovers. That’s 3.2 more than we’d averaged as a team so far. Feel like a reminder to play within themselves is in need. Thank god Nesbitt stepped up to make big shots, and Jimerson to ice it. We just played about as poorly as we can and came away with a win against a decent team. Not pleased but I’ll take it. Let’s clean up our act and trounce SFA.
  2. I would not call Panama a distant 4th, they were only 3pts (one win) back before tonight’s games. That said they are down 1-0 early vs El Salvador
  3. Absolutely heartbreaking for her, the team, and us fans. Hopefully the team rallies around her and puts together a run!
  4. I still want Fletcher. Him and a project big like Gassama seem perfect.
  5. So, I like the idea of Williams, he’s a player we haven’t had for a minute - high production, low efficiency. We desperately needed someone to put up shots with Goodwin and French leaving. However, Williams has borderline terrible advanced stats (cbref link here). I’m hoping he can do more with less now that he’ll finally be on a decent team, but that feels very much TBD. He feels way more like a “let’s see what he can do for us off the bench” type than a sure fire starter. Maybe his gunner attitude will rub off on Gibson?
  6. Thatch/Jimerson/Hargrove will all be competing hard for those minutes. Linssen and Bell will also want to show that they deserve more than mere backup minutes. Going to be a fun year again next season!
  7. Massive get. He really is a Swiss Army knife at this level and will give us so much flexibility.
  8. Nesbitt and Fletcher plz thx
  9. Good question. I read it as they were withdrawing the team, but that seems not to be the case on reading further. What a ridiculous standard the NCAA is setting on this. How is every member of the travel party not a “close contact”
  10. Wichita and Drake, that’s embarrassing for the committee.
  11. And while we only have to replace two players, they were responsible for ~60 minutes per game. I highly doubt all those minutes go to two guys next year, much more likely to get distributed across the group.
  12. You really think he wouldn’t compete for PT? He was a top 60 player in high school and is an elite athlete. Perkins is the only 100% guaranteed starter next year (Yuri at like 99%), you have to think he’d be able to compete for minutes.
  13. He’d be a great complement to Perkins right away, they could be a dynamic duo at the 3/4. Fletcher’s biggest problem last year seemed to be defending without fouling (59 minute sample size, >6 fouls/40). He’d probably at least help soften the blow of losing Goodwin’s rebounding.
  14. Would he have four years of eligibility?
  15. Edit: Believer beat me to it... lusgooooo
  16. How frequently are top 5 teams underdogs against unranked teams? Again, this line seemed weird from the get go. Wisconsin seems overrated, but Marquette looked terrible vs OK St.
  17. @The Wiz any thoughts on the WIsconsin - Marquette line? Started at WI -3.5 and is moving, but that still seems like a steal for the #4 team in the country... what are the voters missing that the bookies are seeing here?
  18. 2008. Suppose it’s not that recent lol, I must be getting old.
  19. The forward pass game was against Carroll College (Waukesha, WI) - my parents both went there! Also, it recently changed names to Carroll University.
  20. We have two players that I assume will make every shot they take. A pretty fun change of pace from the Crews years. Perkins and Jimerson can score on any given possession, while Goodwin and French turn broken plays and missed shots into high percentage chances. And it’s not like the other guys are scrubs, everyone else can get 10pts without it being surprising. We have balanced, deep scoring for the first time since Cody and Kwamain graduated (and neither of them were paragons of efficiency).
