Yeah, we all know how good his shot is; and his explosiveness off the wing. He looked more effective at the 2 instead of the 1. His court vision and balancing between when to score and when to facilitate were his weaknesses. His ball handling at the 1 is average for the B1G right now. Obviously these skills can improve, but if you put him in a spot where you have a top flight true point guard; that combo will break down any defense in the B1G.I had the chance last weekend to watch Miller play a bit at the Jr National tryouts in Colorado Springs while I was doing some work with the USOC sports med team. He was the primary point guard during the drills and scrimmages I watched and looked really good doing so. I would agree that his shot is ahead of his ball handling game (but that's because his shot looked so smooth, ahead of how Ayo was shooting as a senior in my opinion). He was on the same team as Caleb Love, and the two played off each other very well in the backcourt. Their team dominated every time I came by to watch.
In trying to determine where limited scholarships would be awarded for the plethora of high-level talent, that surely was going to commit to The Illini, a poster suggested Crandall’s NBA brother pay his way. From then on, any over sign situation was solved by Luther potentially paying the recruits way through college.Could someone explain? lol
I’m loving the good vibes, but I’m still waiting til they announce to proclaim them ours.Ayo & Feliz are huge losses. But, man, oh, man, Miller and Curbelo are flippin' fantastic adds! Huge hats off to the staff for landing these studs. Curbelo is the best pure point we've had since Deron. He may not be the scorer or athlete that Garris was, but he's a flat out baller. Can really run the offense. Super duper stoked.
