That would be awesome. Unfortunately, Jiggy, my favorite player, has passed. Our best seasons have been years ending in 8 (except 08 because we had a crappy coach, and '17, of course ). So, this could be another great one!

No. My brother was talking to a scout the other day. The scout sees Cole eventually being a 1st round draft pick.

Except Pipkins can knock down threes and Fatts doesn't.

Fatts' playing time is averaging 18 minutes per game, well below the PT of Dowtin and Ro...
