We got that bad news several weeks ago. Can't get us again. He's not our guy.

THT rebound, goes coast to coast and ends with a soaring dunk. Battle-esque almost. And then sneaks down the lane for a layup. Fire up 50-42. Whatever got under his skin is working, hope the other team keeps saying or doing it.

too bad I turned to the Mokan game at halftime. Looks like Okoro had a great 2nd half and EJ Liddell is up on the 17u team.
Fire and Family tied with Ayo on the bench for either a breather or fouls. THT still unconscious though.

Some more techs on the Fire and the Family. Talen still on the floor so must not have been him. Fire down 2.

It took longer than I anticipated for someone to get up in arms at the idea of comparing THT's style to DG's. A rare treat.

Are you going to be okay?

Kaevon Merriweather has been redonkulous. He literally will not miss. Has The Family on his back right now.

Haven't seen Ayo on the floor or the bench for several minutes. THT single-handedly keeping the Fire close. Merriweather vs Horton-Tucker.

Ayo is on the bench. Don't know if he got teched out or is getting an exceptionally long breather (or got injured) but I've never seen him out for this long before.

Fire didn't quit. Got a steal down by 3 with 7 seconds left but couldn't convert. Lose 90-83.

Don't know how to explain the zone Talen Horton-Tucker has been in this spring. Like trying to describe a rainbow to a blind person.


he was sure in one tonight. fought for steals and rebounds to the very end. Hope we get him.

Horton hears a hoop! Fine with Ayo and THT plus big. Regarding Tilmon not sure of his success in college. Talent their just don't see the maturity and drive to succeed in college.

Bazley starting for Meanstreets. Long and agile and not shy about putting it up from deep.

Mason Forbes on the Oakland Soldiers has the biggest and best Afro I've seen since 1975. Really takes me back. MS up 22-15.

Remember this name. He'll be on the Gophers in '18. I watched him last week and he's a handful.

My friend Sailor Jerry came by and we are reminiscing about our many days of weekend liberty in Subic Bay, Philippines o' so long ago. Yes, I'm doing quite well, everything appears to be Orange and Blue.... which is several steps above peachy keen.

And since we are talking 'crutin' Someone mentioned recently that THT might be the first to pop in that class. Can anyone clarify that? We talking 'bout practice?!?!?! er, uh, talking about over the summer, early fall, or into next season?

THT 33 pts, 9 rebs, Ayo 14 pts, 7 assts.
http://www.d1circuit.com/game/show/17622492

Thought this team looked a lot different tonight. Besides no Demarius Jacobs, only 3 bigs- Burrell, Pearson (not very skilled) and Williams (he weighs 300 lbs). Brought in Pinson from the MIF Elite - their 2nd team that plays in smaller tournaments and camps -- to replace Jacobs. Wonder if this is for tonight, this weekend or for the rest of the summer. Jacobs was playing lights out so far. In fact it was the trio of THT, Ayo and Demarius that kept the Fire afloat the first two weekends.

Tim Finke throws down a two-handed dagger for Meanstreets. Didn't light up the stat sheet but always active & makes winning plays.

For those counting at home.. THT finished with 33 points #Illini
