205 lbs??? He went from 165 to 205 lbs? Look at his build, you be the judge. I know how big I was in high school and this kid is closer to the 165 side of things.

Maybe as a senior in college he can crack 200 lbs. (I'll put him on my diet.)

Re: 1/30 | UMass Minutemen | 6:30PM (CBSSN)

Boys...a lane violation counts as a turnover. A lane violation on a FT that is made (or missed) does not count as a missed FT.

It's technically a team turnover.
