    You weren’t at the same practice I was. Not engaged? Crazy

    I was at practice and Griffin absolutely plays good defense. Jones got out of position a few times

    I was at practice and Griffin absolutely plays good defense. Jones got out of position a few times like freshmen do, but he has the ability to play defense. Griffin is probably further ahead. Both are good rebounders. Jones is a plus plus athlete. Griffin is a plus shooter. It may take some...

    No, it means nothing. It’s how Canadians refer to ‘University.”

    Jordan played some four last year. Jones will have to play there some out of necessity. I guess “4” is an outdated term on this team. More like 4 perimeter players around one big. Or five perimeter players with no big.

    He also said Oregon University. It means nothing.

    Jones and Jordan will definitely see time at Kipper’s spot.

    He is a walk-on who won’t play. When the team scrimmaged with the recruits last week, he was not included on any of the teams. Even Cayce and T. Underwood played some. When they don’t include you in the pick up games (he watched from the sideline), you are a deep deep reserve.

    He has only one more official available. Looks like Georgetown if he follows through.

    I love Williams but Feliz is the fourth, IMO.

    It may just be his look but that kid plays so hard. He’s not mailing it in. Great teammate.

    If we agree that Frazier and Ayo are starters, it comes down to the third guard spot. Feliz, Jordan or Williams. It will be a great battle but obviously all three are key members of the team. Any of the three could start. I like Jordan’s shooting off the bench. He comes in when the other...

    Just from a couple of days of viewing last weekend, if the season started today, the lineup would be: C. Giorgi F. Nichols G. Ayo G. Frazier G. Feliz Long way to go and Adonis will change our look when he gets healthy.

    Walkers job is not dependent on getting Liddell. Walker got Tilmon, Smith, Pickett. How is it his fault that they left later?

    Before the practice, DeLaRosa was shooting around and making quick start and stop moves. Have no idea of a time frame, but he is at least doing some basketball stuff. No knee brace either.

    The recruits scrimmaged with the team. It was not an intense scrimmage. As usual, the teams went out of its way to feed the recruits. Ayo got the ball to Oscar a lot. Guys like Feliz and Williams barely looked at the basket. They were content to let the recruits get theirs. Giorgi was very...

    Shannon made 9 threes in a row shooting around before the workouts started. He needs to tweak his release but he has a good shooting touch. THT shot horribly during his workout but is considered a good shooter. The recruits scrimmaged with the team. It was not an intense scrimmage. As...

    Shannon gets overlooked a bit, IMO. Rivals has Liddell as #43 and Shannon as #45. Shannon has moved up 27 spots recently. We should be really excited if we get Shannon. Of course, we all want more.

    I was just replying to the notion of Feliz being a SG/SF in this offense.

    I feel Frazier is more of a combo than Feliz. Starting three points who can also score is a good thing. I like Feliz at the point with Ayo and Frazier attacking/facilitating from the wing although all three will run the point. I will tell you if I change my mind after seeing them scrimmage...
