Re: Week #5 - Games of Interest

We seem to think we are going to just breeze thru these next three games and go 8-3 non-conference. We have significant injury issues, and our bigs are struggling. Discussing at-large bid possibilities at this juncture seems to be more than a little bit premature.

Yes Reef this was a great, savvy play, in a critical spot. I forgot about that. And he nailed all three FT's.

Re: 12/6 | Alabama Crimson Tide | 8:00PM

I don't think we can play Langevine and Berry together. They both can defend centers, but I don't trust either of them defending anyone with any quickness. Heck Rod is right they couldn't even keep up with PC's center running the floor. Besides, Berry is not built to play huge minutes (20 is fine) a...

Akele seems to be playing scared, which is never a good thing. I thought he had potential to be a sort of stretch 4, with his length, but it is not working out so far. Too early to give up on him though. Look at Berry.

Jarvis didn't press his offense but played steady and solid while he was out there. No mistakes, deferred to others on offense. I think JT has to be the go-to guy the rest of the year, even when EC returns. Think we will have to force pace tomorrow so that VA can't set up their D.

I would go after a 5th year wing scorer. We are losing most of our offensive output from the wing and there may be a void for a year until the young guys develop. I don’t think you can assume that Russell Thompson and Adams will pick up the scoring load to help Dowtin.
