    Was the single most beautiful post move I've seen a UConn player make in 10 years. Kid will be a stud by his senior year

    This is called the Sonic the Hedgehog move, works about 20% of the time.

    If Vance can put together a post-up game, he can be a pretty deadly weapon for us.

    I noticed his inside moves in other games but nothing to that degree. He just is starting to look more confident out there and I attribute that to all the minutes he gets.

    This is why I come to the Boneyard. For the first few weeks of the season Vance got rightfully slagged for his inability to hit water from a boat and we were wondering if he and his father were Mumu situation part deux. Last night the kid pirouettes in the lane and now he's leaving early for the draft in a few years.

    C'mon.
    He's on a trajectory to be one and done this season.

    Vance is an effective weapon in the paint. Good news.

    He is very Giffey-ish from 3, and by that, I compare him to the frosh through junior Giffey, who could hit a 3 when his feet were set. And when he wasn't set, you knew it as soon as he went up. With Vance, you know if it's going in or not as he's going up. This is very different from Purvis, you never know with Rodney because Rodney is all arms when shooting.

    Just glad to see he has been working on speeding up his jumper.

    Only way he ever leaves early is if he shoots 60% from 3 and averages 30 ppg. Otherwise he's too unathletic & doesn't have NBA length for his spot (SF).

    He's going to be a wonderful 4-year player for us.

    Vance kinda reminds me of Jason Kapono. Not very athletic but skilled and can shoot well (even though he hasn't shown the ability to shoot consistently well yet)

    When you look up Hyperbole in the dictionary they link you to this posting.

    No that was not an exaggerated statement. I'm being 100% serious. That was the most impressive, beautiful post move a UCONN player has made in 10 years. Name me a better one lol

    Confidence is the key to every athlete's game. Vance always looked good shooting the ball and he will be deadly in the future. If he can develop his inside game we will really have something.

    Sticks had some great drop step dunks over smaller defenders that trumped the Jackson step through. Kemba abused Syracuse in the 2011 BET with a step through that was very similar and he was giving up major size.

    It was impressive, but 10 years is a long time. Maybe 5, maybe.

    While we're doing hyperbole, that behind the back/over the shoulder pass that the Temple kid had where his teammate clanged it off the back of the rim was one of better almost assists I've seen in a long time.

    That ain't hyperbole - it was fantastic. His teammate's miscue prevented him from making SportsCenter. That was a heckuva pass.

    The spin move was tasmanian which is common off the Australian coast...it's a move desired by all who play this sport but can only be executed properly by a husky in the northeast once every 10 years.

    Reminded me a lot of Boatright's pass in the St. Joe's game.

    Damn you TCF! This is my favorite GIF of all time, and when I saw the thread title, I queued it up. Oh well. Enjoy the likes. :)

    I'm pretty confident that if we watched 4 years of Jeff Adrien we could pick some out.

    It's not arguable. We can probably call it a nice move and leave it at that. It wasn't the best anything in a decade.

    It's not arguable to you. Adults can agree to disagree on OPINIONS. Good Day

    I hope this debate goes on longer than the Diallo thread.

    Vance will stay and hone his craft. After seeing Sticks, Hamilton and others struggle to get to the big show its elementary a NBA contract far exceeds the d league or Europe.
