re: Alabama Basketball Offseason News & Recruiting: Nike Hoop Summit up Next - BigBird09
[quote]I have a question that isn't aimed at anyone directly, because I don't even really know when or how it started. Maybe I made it up in my own head, I don't know. But for some reason I thought Armond Davis was supposed to be a three point sharpshooter before the season started[/quote] ...

[quote]Dazon shot over 40% from long range last season[/quote] He did. He shot 43% from 3. But when you only take 1 shot from deep a game, it doesn't really affect what the defense is going to do....

[quote]Yes? They fill our biggest offensive needs : attacker and shooter. Will make a world of difference for Key and Ingram.[/quote] I agree that shooting is our biggest need, which is why I think we need to add more shooting through a grad transfer rather than a banger. Bangers are nice, but if...

[quote]Kentucky does it year in and year out. This is college basketball where a freshman can come in and be one of the best players in the nation.[/quote] Kentucky relies on more than 2 players to hit their 3s. Even if Petty and Sexton come in as 40% 3pt shooters, it takes more than 2 shooters t...

[quote]s the zone Sexton driving and shooting ability should help with that. Plus Petty can shoot it as well. We need a guy who can rebound. No way we can depend on Hall for that[/quote] So you're going to rely on 2 freshmen to keep the defense honest? Giddens isn't a shooter and Hall is a great ...

[quote]I'm so tired of stretch 4. I want a banger like Hendrix, Dudley, or C. Davis. Go put that body on someone. frick all that finesse shite unless its someone like Dirk lol.[/quote] We have a problem with defense's running a packed-in Zone on us. Unless we can prove that we can hit from the outs...

[quote]What do we really need?[/quote] Floor spacers. I would love it to be a stretch 4, but I'd be looking for grad transfers known for their shooting ability. ...

[quote]Guard who averaged 11 PPG this season. Would we want him even tho we will have Sexton and Petty? Would he be eligible immediately since he's graduating? [/quote] Was just coming to post about Freeman. He actually averaged just 9.5 PPG this year, but more importantly he's a shooter. Shot 4...

[quote]We would never lose to Dayton again [/quote] Grant had to go, but when we fired him I said that I'd be a little surprised if he didn't succeed elsewhere. A smaller school like Dayton is the perfect place for a guy like Grant to succeed. It offers him the luxury of just finding diamonds in ...

[quote]We have missed an electric and exciting player like Thornwell for so long.[/quote] Retin? Seems like other than this year that we've always had a star player. Before Retin was Randolph. Before him was Releford. Before him was Mitchell and Green. We just never had much of a supporting cast....

We may not be at #4 long. Mizzou is in the thick of it for a 5-star in the 2017 class and MPjr brother who is a borderline 5-star in the 2018 class, but is expected to reclassify to the 2017 class. ...

re: Alabama Basketball Offseason News & Recruiting: Nike Hoop Summit up Next - BigBird09
This is a year where I would go hard after one or 2 of the big name transfers and try to bring one home like we did with Giddens. The 2018 instate group isn't much to write home about so it would be nice to get someone ready to come in and help replace Sexton's scoring. ...

Didn't even think about that one for some reason. But yes, since they play international competition it's not considered a HS all-star game. ...

[quote]there's a third one just Sexton is in I think. [/quote] Pretty sure it is just those two for Sexton. I believe a HS player is only allowed to accept 2 all-star events. ...

He'll be eligible, but I'd hope we would try to go after a graduate transfer instead of a borderline high major prospect. ...
