I kind of agree that I would like to see more of the line up we had for the second half of the ECU game but with Al at pointNot sure I agree with that. If Gilbert can go then at least he can start prepping for next year in the next few weeks . It will always be a risk to play any game, so can't look at it that way. Everyone else needs to start stepping up.
It's not about winning games in 2019, it's about establishing chemistry with the guys who are going to be here next year.
Minutes consistency year to year is correlative to improvement and general quality of play.I get the injury concern, but if he can play he should play. He's not getting these games back, and you don't get game reps sitting on the bench.
I'm with you. Fair or not, the 2nd to last memory of Jalen will be him getting benched in the 2nd half of a game more than halfway through his senior year for insubordination. He just never became "the guy" we all thought he would. Some have it inside of them and some don't. The fire never seemed to burn for him.I am one of those bozos.
I feel badly that it (likely) ended like this for him. He definitely did not deserve that.
I'm not going to miss watching him sleepwalk through another first half though.
Just suffering from eeyore disease. Would like some real positivity instead of blind hope. To think the last few years were topped by a dissolved top 5 class. A firing. Sanctions. A new AD. A new president. And 2 players from a sub .500 team flirting in and out of the league. Yes the Hurley hire seems good but this damn injury bug is doing more to us than anything. I feel once boat got hurt in the aac tourney that bug has made a home. I can’t recall the last time we traveled with a full roster.You seem awfully confident in such a drastic prediction.
They had a kid at Orlando's Moore High that had missed all season with an ACL...On Senior Night tip off, they sent him, leg brace and all, out on the floor stationed under the basket. Moore won the tip off and threw it down half court where the kid scored his only points of the season.
Left the floor with fans standing..

Certainly wish him well going forward though. He will make a living playing basketball somewhere if he wants too.
