[quote]Looked like a tournament team in the first half. [b]Second half looked like a borderline NIT team.[/b][/quote] If that were the case we wouldn't have lost. Texas isn't an NIT quality team IMO....

I like Norris starting over King until King shows some consistency. King reminds me of Cooper. The scoring tools are there, he just lacks the confidence. UT fans would be so bitter if Bama blew out UT. Red McCombs (UT benefactor) would come across as a genius as he really pushed for Avery over S...

[quote]I love coach Avery man, but damn this is some terrible basketball.[/quote] Dude, the reserves were all in and we called off the dogs. The offense looked fine for most of the night. Chill. ...

[quote]So I'm just casually browsing DraftExpress Mock Draft for 2018, as you do at 2 in the morning, and guess who I see sitting there as the 33rd best prospect. Donta Hall. I thought I've seen flashes of what could potentially be a future NBA rotation big, but I never expected that. Colin Sext...

The offensive flow was there in the 2nd half. We just didn't have the execution. We attacked the zone well, but struggled to make the final passes and shots needed to score. We also didn't take some of the open shots we should have taken. Player summary: Key is going to be a stud. Davis is going...

[quote]I personally didn't have any problems with the STYLE of offense we were running last night. People comparing this O to Grant are experiencing some revisionist history. I'm not saying it has been superior, but it isn't the same. We had some passes into the low block that never would have hap...

[quote]Avery had some bad luck with the one non-qualifier and the Ferguson situation. But it looks like he's [b]finally[/b] turned the corner with this 17' class[/quote] Agreed, but I would recant "finally". He's been succeeding at recruiting the moment he was hired. Even with the Ferguson and Eu...

[quote]You can look at LSU, MSU or UF last year who had top flight talent and looked promising but never put it together [/quote] LSU had a great 2015 class, but Trent Johnson is an absolutely terrible head coach. MSU only had one top 100 player in their class (Newman) and he had very little ...

re: Can we PLEASE stop scheduling Dayton??? - BigBird09
[quote]Dayton isn't some powerhouse. Let's not hype them up to be some basketball blue blood. That's not the kind of team that a good basketball team loses to every year, particularly at home[/quote] This team is responsible for this year's results, not the past. Is it frustrating? Absolutely. Bu...

[quote]Took one game to make me apathetic again.[/quote] Lost to a quality opponent and people are ready to quit on the team. Just makes me all the more amazed Avery landed the class he did when the majority of our fan base is "apathetic". ...

Junior reminds me of a worse Hankerson; Panics when he has the ball and does something completely out of control. I love having him on the team for recruiting, but I wasn't thrilled with how early he came into the game. Hopefully he's just had some nerves, but with what I've seen he shouldn't be our...

[quote]Was this a joke? lol. This is a horrible guess at the 2017/18 line up. I'd say it's more like this.... PG- Dazon Ingram/Collin Sexton/Avery Jr SG- A'rmond Davis/Herb Jones SF- Nick King/John Petty PF- Braxton Key/Riley Norris/Alex Reese C- Donta Hall/Daniel Giddens/Galin Smith[/qu...

re: 2017 Basketball recruiting and offseason news thread - BigBird09
Here's my way too early prediction for 2017-18: PG - Ingram, AJjr SG - Sexton, Davis SF - Norris, Petty, Jones PF - Key, King, Reese C - Hall, Giddens, Smith So hard to do this with the depth we have. I'd say outside of Sexton (and maybe Key) there isn't a guaranteed starter at the moment...
