    What is your favorite potential Lineup?

    I think this will be our best lineup (with either of the PG+Bouk) against midmajor type teams where spacing isn't as important and power/athleticism can win alone.

    Does Aaron Nesmith give Tyler Polley hope for the draft?

    Improving at age 22 doesn't impress NBA scouts. Most of the dumb GMs are out of the league. You have to basically be the NCAA player of the year at age 22 to get drafted. Polley would have to improve substantially in rounding out his game to just be at the level that Nesmith was at age 20. He...

    Does Aaron Nesmith give Tyler Polley hope for the draft?

    Without the postseason it went under the radar, but he quietly had one of the best statistical seasons in the last few years. He's old and his measurements are below average (but not terrible), but it's not the worst pick in the late 20s.

    Does Aaron Nesmith give Tyler Polley hope for the draft?

    He wouldn't get drafted even if he scored 20 ppg.

    He's basically Danny Green reincarnated. Same height and wingspan. Should get a lot of open shots from Kemba, Tatum, and Brown penetration, and likewise he'll create some spacing for them.

    Precious measured out kinda small. Not surprised his camp kept trying to make him a wing instead of a big. 6'7.5 without shoes. Only 7'0" and change wingspan. He's definitely a better athlete than Grant (and bigger and longer), but I'm not sure what he does in the NBA. He's Montrezl Harrell...

    Can you put reasonable precautions in place and lower risk for people in attendance for a single event? Yes. Can you make sure those in attendance are those without too many pre-existing conditions and of a safer age? Yes. But what happens if you do that everywhere? Schools, restaurants...

    2022 Recruiting: Roddy Gayle Jr. Meeting(10/13/20)

    It's the same as FG%. You want someone with a high efficiency, but at the same time there's a usage-based skill curve. It's easy to post a few times when you've been set up and have the perfect joke/ wide open shot. But the guys (or gals) that can carry an offense/forum with high volume of...

    The NCAA didn't even use the 3 pointer in the tournament while John Shea was in school. Even in 1990, teams took 3 a game PER TEAM. John Shea is a bit before my time. Did he even take 3s?

    UConn picked 4th in preseason BE poll

    Confirmed. He and Sanogo will have epic battles. He can't hit a FT, though.
  28. A college basketball 1-357 rankings

    Usually people mean "subtract losses from total wins" and you get the .500 number. So yeah 16-11 is 5 games over .500. Because it is how many games need to be played to get back to .500 (either losses or wins for above or below). Mathematically, you can't go 6 games over .500 with a 27 game...

    Goodman: UCONN has positive COVID test, shutting down.

    Looks like they're doing once a week now and 3 per week when the season starts. They should have been already doing way more than once a week if they were practicing in an indoor gym together. That's pretty absurd.

    2020-2021 Preseason Kenpom Rankings

    It's a starting point, not an ending point. No preseason prediction is going to be particularly good. Although 2019 we were preseason 101 and finished 99, so pretty much right on. 2016 was also pretty close. The other years inbetween? No so much.

    The contrast between Whaley and what we've seen and/or know about the others in this area is so stark, Whaley's screen blitzing might be the most elite single skill on the whole team.
