Ebo's FT% says hello. Hopefully that is an aspect that he works on this offseason.

Most players can improve. It is a mental thing. Uncontested 15 foot shot with 15 seconds to shoot. We can all name a lot who didn't, but it is small compared to the many who did improve. Trice has the Battle aggressiveness, full bore switch is on, that very few seem to have turned on. It isn't something coaches can really do, the player has to turn it on. I think that is what Underwood sees. He wasn't successful at SFA by getting 5 stars, he was successful by getting players who went full bore, speeding up the game, and getting turnovers, and high pct. transition baskets. Trice fits.

He was 11/25 for the season. Pruitt used to miss that many every night.

Not so sure on free throws, but there is a very good reason that Wooden players used the backboard a lot. No doubt in my mind that when shooting from an angle, there is a lot more room for error, and it still goes in. Henry Bibby used to bank them in from 20 ft. consistently. A lost art.

Playing in the Big 10, we could sure use a guy like Trice that can throw his weigh around. You could use more than one player like that.

I think he's more likely headed to the "Association"

Agree he might be. But what about the star counters, and the boyz who look at who offered who? There is no way this could have possibly happened with offers from Duke, Kansas, Oregon, UCLA, for Anthony. Let alone Moses Brown being a McD AA. No way our insiders might be full of it.

He will get away with that here for 4 years, the B1G refs don't know what goaltending is right?
