There's plenty to see in every practice.  But trying to make offensive projections based on drills seems to me a waste of time.  If that meant anything, Andre Lorentsson would have started.

Forgive me but it's an impossible to imagine Lorentsson yesterday as anything but the 12th or 13th guy. I'm not talking about standing in a corner and making 9 threes. I'm talking about the full contact, full-court drills.

I know this is hard to believe but Lorentsson was the high scorer in one scrimmage and nearly that in another.  He just couldn't could guard anybody.  I don't think scoring will be a problem for him at Toledo either.  The question how committed is Toledo to playing defense?  Because if they just try to outscore people, Lorentsson will make their rotation.

My thoughts are popcorn was still great, thatch stood out (he looks ready), and momo was a bigger surprise. Perkins fell a couple times near basket. That made me nervous though I'll need to get past that.  Sweeper got in the way one time

I'm planning on going Friday. Are they selling anything beyond popcorn? (It's around my dinner time.)

Asking the important questions.

they are planning to have at least that friday though according to the lady at the stand.

 Perkins seems very hesitant physically. I think we'll need to be patient as it may take some time for the guy who'd be running point in 1-4 sets to close out games and finishing over guys in traffic.

I think Perkins is taking the correct approach. This is just the beginning of practice, there is no need for him to push his leg at this time. Better to start slow in the practices and build up. Hopefully he will improve by the time the season starts.

George Gervin dreams of being reincarnated as Javonte Perkins.

Is Roby still on the coaching staff?
He’s not on the slubillikens.com website.

He's headed back to Europe to resume his playing career.

SLU needs to update that men's basketball roster page. Just because you don't have everyone's mugshot yet doesn't mean you cannot post their name and info. The current page doesn't reflect a first-class program.

When Venice Menace talks, Saint Louis Billikens Men's Basketball listens!

Thanks, Menace!

Adding links to the players’ social media and some of their NIL stuff is a great touch.

I think they still have some class updating to do. Some guys should have the "redshirt" tag in front of their class listing. Forrester and Pickett should probably be Grad Students. Parker is listed as a junior but only played one JUCO season despite being there for two.

Brandon Courtney isn't listed yet.

I agree but it's far from complete. Hope they continue to add it - they only have Yuri's cameo and Fred's shop.

Cameo like when you pay for a greeting from a notable person? That's actually genius for NIL money.

It's even great for having Paul Reubens announce the gender of your next child.
