Only 6 Big Ten players since 1965 have achieved a career average of 14 pts and 7 rbs (Deon Thomas being one). Giorgi just has to increase his point average by 1.5 and his rebound average by 1.8 to join this club. He'll get a shot at the NBA. Whether he sticks or not, I'm not sure.
 
Agreed. I said u18.5 wins 200 posts earlier and think with that conference schedule I'm probably right. However doing good work in noncon and being mediocre in the conference should give us a decent enough resume for a shot. It will definitely be a fun team to watch regardless.
18-14 type season is where I am at. Hopefully we exceed that and win 2-3 more and make the tourney. Maybe 10-10 in conference.

There was a time early in the BIG season when I wondered whether we were going to win another game all year. We made good strides after that, and hopefully we will continue to progress next year. Regardless, watching this team, win or lose, is more entertaining that the lawst 2 or 3 Groce years.
 
I like your enthusiasm, but I’m not quite sure we can do 22 wins. If we do, I’ll dance a duet with Giorgi.

Ohio state went 19-14 and only beat three tourney teams (2 10 seeds and one 7) they avoided Dayton, 18-14 will get a big ten team in, i think 19-12 regular season is a healthy goal
 
Well let's just come right out and say it: we've got the horses to win next year.
Think we only have a pony at PF. Kofi for 20 mins at center and Giorgi at the other 20 leaves us short at PF.
 
Get a suitable PF and this team will win 22-25 games. Shouldn't be hard to convince someone now with Ayo coming back.
