If DJW can improve his ability to get to the basketball, he could be a big winner in BWood's system. IMO AJ is the guy that might be left out.

Offensive offense. Still can't believe so many people wanted him. Wouldn't wanted to watch us win 😜. Well, maybe I could have adapted. Wouldn't have complained until the second season.

Really, really hope DJ stays. He is so mobile for his size and has shown a willingness to drive to the hoop as well as knock down three-pointers. Malcolm Hill also (justifiably) took up most of his minutes this year. He'd compete with Kipper next year but Kipper can also play the four spot.

AJ, man... he has been taking shooting lessons from Alex Legion, and we'll have a ton of guards next year if Mark Smith signs. His shot looks kind of flat to me. I don't know what he's bringing to the table if he's not hitting shots.

If a kid transfers because his coach is fired or leaves, do they still have to sit out a year?

Yes. Welcome to the NCAA, where nobody cares and you're just there to make them money.

Yes, the only waiver available now is for grad students.

Don't get the bashing of Virginia's offense. Mover Blocker is pretty popular. UCLA runs it, so does the Portland Trailblazers. Virginia's pace is slower but the nuts and bolts of it is being ran by quite a few programs.

They failed to break 50 points in 3 games this year. Couldn't break 40 in their final game.

'Nuff said.

Besides Perrantes, they pretty much had no player that could create for them self this year. Still got a 5 seed and have won the ACC a couple times in the last few years. Something must be working.

I hate Bill Self. I hate Kansas. I hate the bench players that insist on making finger glasses every time a three goes in. Wasn't really sure which thread to put this on, so I chose here.

Correct, but even before the rule change, a coach getting fired or leaving had no effect on the transfers. Those things by themselves were not considered basis for applying for a hardship waiver.

Indeed, and it is their defense. They just play such good defense usually that they can win games only scoring 50 points.

Beat me to it. Interesting to announce that he's testing NBA waters and transferring. I guess it doesn't hurt to get NBA scout feedback.

Could be a nice find. Fairly mobile, decent touch around the basket and can step out to three:

I missed this in the madness yesterday, but 6-3 guard Kwe Parker is transferring from Tennessee, per a source. Elite level athlete.

He's got some of the sickest dunking mixtapes ever.
