    That team is pretty good. Kevin Durant, Seth Curry, Draymond Green.

    If JC was still in power those bums wouldn't even get a glance from us.

    I assume Ollie is desperate to get a SF or a spread 4 in case Larrier is back or fully healthy and Jackson transfers.

    In case Jackson transfers? Really? What the hell would give anyone that indication?

    Depth is a good thing to have. We've got two injured forwards, and even more than Larrier, I wonder about Diarra for next year. Facey and Brimah are gone. We've got very little experience up front. Enoch would have the most. Think about that for a minute.

    good to see KO starting to do some of this - he's seen enough of what occurs when the injury bug bites multiple times and even if you think it ain't going to bite you - it just may

    Dude is what Lubin was supposed to be -- a wide-bodied, undersized 4 who just rebounds. Has offers from a couple of SEC teams and a few Big East teams as well.

    I don't know, hard to say how JUCO numbers and play will translate at a higher level but from reading a few JUCO report write-ups he seems to be more versatile and a different player than that.

    Nah, it was Royce White. He was very impressive against us.

    The staff has seen him play before, so it looks like they have real interest in this kid.

    If he can rebound, I don't care what else he can do. I know that's a little sad...I asked for more once. But damn, I'm here laughing that I'm wondering who will rebound once Facey leaves. :D

    Take the numbers with a wallop of salt.

    They've scored over 115 points in three games this season playing a variety of preparatory programs and low-level junior colleges.

    He doesn't look that versatile going by the numbers; not a three-point shooter to be sure. Numbers are straight bad there - not a great free throw shooter. He's a power forward if he plays DI ball.

    And the assist numbers.....in one game, they had 42 assists on 51 baskets. In another, they had 32 assists on 39 baskets and 35 assists on 42 baskets in a third. Basically, the 10th grader scoring their games doesn't have a clue what an assist looks like.

    They're really struggling to nail down a front court - we're deep into contingency plans here.

    Our beef next year is Enoch who if he steps on the court has 2 fouls.
