Re: WPRI-Ty Boswell arrested-Player also involved

Now that this over, I want to say just a couple of things. No charges were ever brought against the PC players who started all this shit in the first place. Also, sticking up for one of your coach's daughter is a good thing, in my opinion. Once again, I was not there. Just going by what I was told.

Caroline had too many offensive boards. It was like our bigs felt relief he missed the first shot and didn't bother to box him out. Preston and Fatts need more minutes.

I think atrophy of the muscles in his left arm would be the #1 concern. He might need a short rehab period once the cast comes off to regain the strength in that arm.

When we've got players fouling out in 15 minutes of play(Cyril) or even 5 minutes of play (Nicola), switching it up occasionally wouldn't be a bad idea.

I'd say Andre and Tertsea are true centers. Looking at your roster I’d agree Tertsea is a true center, Nevada doesn’t have anyone like that. Andre at 6’8 I don’t normally consider a center more PF but at 275 is hefty and probably solid college center. Nevada doesn’t have anyone like that, Foster is...

Isn't this the ideal game for us to just go four guards?

But if Stan doesn't play, we only have 5 guards. Maybe Akele sees more...
