Thank you to everyone working to make this safe, or as safe as possible under the circumstances.

Happy to follow the team this year --should be really special for the guys who've been here through the entire rebuild.

Not sure I’ve seen this posted anywhere but here is a bit of practice footage. My biggest takeaway is Kofi looks much smoother on the block and more fluid overall. Looks like the game has slowed down for him a bit.

This team should have a lot of versatility. I’m excited to see the different combinations.

Our biggest test in this three game tourney is wright state. They should be a good team this year, were 25-7 last year

Nice Find!

Agree with your takeaway about Kofi. He's gonna be a monster.

Looks like Hamlin has his left arm in a cast at the end of the video. Anyone know what that's about?

Lieb seems to move pretty well for a 7 footer. Coleman-Hawkins looks like he needs some more time with Fletch.

Excellent quality video also!

Adam Miller is such a grown man. Is he old for his class??

Giorgi has to hate guarding Kofi every day. Like, he doesn't stand a chance.

Love to see the Belo to DaMonte three pointer. Also nice to see Adam to Trent for three. Three point shooting was weak point last year and have huge chance to improve. Adding Adam and Cole to good chance of improvement from Trent, Ayo, and DaMonte could actually be a strength rather than a weakness. With more options gives more open shots.

Nice practice highlights at Ubben....let's see if the shot's go in as easily at SFC...or better yet...Carver-Hawkeye and Kohl. Things have a way of changing when it really counts...but I can't wait to get affirmation. This should be a memorable season...if we get to play it through.

Hamlin has a broken hand. My understanding is he is just starting to work with the team. Possible Mid December return.

I feel like most of the games, given our ranking will be televised, except these first three...I know someone posted how and when to drop BIG+ quickly, but can one of you remind us, or just me, how to do that? Also, if anyone has an opinion about whether it’s worth just holding on to it for the season, it would be appreciate.

I’m really glad we have these games to knock the rust off before Baylor. Hope everyone gets lots of PT and we get a good look at some guys we haven’t seen before.

Some of our most competitive games MAY be in practice!!

Loved ALOT from that video, but the coaching from veteran players is what will make this team gel in the end! And anyone who has been around a team that truly gels, knows how much better they are than just talent alone!

- We all know Ayo, Kofi, and Miller are going to be really good.
- Trent and DMFW shot looked a little smoother.
-Hawkins had the most pure splashdown 3 of anyone I saw PLUS he was guarding Ayo and looked fine doing it a couple possessions. If we have to go big in some games this year, his experience of playing all 5 positions in just the last few years could come up BIG for us. Before he leaves, a lot of teams will be frustrated by his flexibility at different positions.
- Curbelo may just take the point by mid season and run it the rest of the year. Who does that leave out? Nobody, everyone is still going to contribute and get theirs.
- Grandison, ehh, didn't see much, but hit a shot. Short clip, we shall see
- Giorgi coaching up the kids and FINISHED at the rim. So many of his missed shots last year were soft finishes. We had bets going in the stands for a few weeks there last year of how many times he could dunk but didn't in a game.
- Would love to see a healthy BBV and Hutch but they seem to be lifelong injury prone.

It's going to be a fun ride, too bad its in front of a TV and not in my normal seat

no reason why the first 3 shouldn't be on BTN

No college football to go up against

heck do an all day marathon, 11am, 1pm.3pm,5pm,7pm,9pm

That did not stop early season games in previous years getting Schmack'd onto the "plus" network. I am betting at least one winds up on BTN+ and would not rule out all three landing there.

Another takeaway - we have no one who can stop Ayo.
