I think BU is going to try Kipper at the 5 in most games this season. Make the opponent prove that they can exploit that size advantage. If they can’t then we can get another guard on the floor which suits our uptempo style.Hope to see Giorgi get at least 20 minutes in this game. We're gonna see a lot of Kipper in the pinch post until Adonis is back.
Pruman, that is cool you are from McLeansboro. I'm from Carmi, and know a lot of people from there. Actually went to the Sloan-Lee-Reed basketball camp years ago. I have met and talked with Jerry a few times several years ago at his farm there when I was doing some grain bin work for him and my high school basketball coach was Brad LeeI used to watch the Purple Aces on tape delay at 10:30 pm (I am so old, lol ) and they always had good teams , especially Jerry Sloan
(from my hometown of McLeansboro, IL (go Foxes ), Larry Humes and so many others that memory escapes me....Old B & W TV grainy picture with so much action and excitement....

I mean, why not? Sure, probably not Thursday, but this is the equivalent of them saying he's medically 100% for a game. I could easily see him getting a few minutes in Maui with this news.Huge. I still don't expect him to play in games for awhile, but things are on the right track!
Going to be really interesting to see how they work him in. How well does he run the floor as a big dude coming off a serious injury? Does he fit in with our high pressure/transition style?
I just think they will be cautious with him early on to make sure they don't rush him back and he has a setback. But I agree, he'll probably get some minutes here and there if the doctors have cleared him for games. I should have said that I don't expect him to get significant minutes for awhile.I mean, why not?

Now, if we want to talk about significant 10mins+, sure it's gonna take him time to get fully up to speed.
Well, he's been running miles for a while, it seems. So hopefully his conditioning is fairly good.Going to be really interesting to see how they work him in. How well does he run the floor as a big dude coming off a serious injury? Does he fit in with our high pressure/transition style?
Regardless, it will be good to have another big body to work with.
