    General MBB thread

    Going to try and keep this as one solid thread up all year just to talk about the hoops program in general. Players of the Week, injuries, stat freak stuff, etc., can start here. Let me start here with a few interesting stats in the first seven games: Pace of play: 289 A little surprised at that number, because I think we're running off of steals and most rebounds. But when we get the big lead late in games against Albany, Hampton or New Mexico, understandably we're holding it. Maybe a little too early for my taste, but that's where the tempo slows down. Holden is leading in points per game (16.6), steals with 14 (2spg), rebounds with 11.0, and is second in assists with 19, while shooting 50.6% (38.1% 3pt). Shooting 68.3% from the line. Lead in turnovers with 14. Nolan is averaging 13.4ppg, 3.1rpg, 3.1apg, has 11 steals and is shooting 39% from the field, 25% from 3pt and 60.6% from the line. Timberlake is averaging 13ppg, shooting 38% from the field, 40% (14-35) from beyond the arc, 74% from the line with 3.9 rebounds. Gibson in just four games is shooting 9 of 26 from the field (34.6%), 5-17 from 3pt (29.4%), 13-15 FT with 8 assists and 4 turnovers and seven steals with 9ppg. Rizzuto in four games is shooting 25% from the field and 3-16 (19%) from the three-point line. 7ppg, 4rpg Thompson is averaging 5.7ppg, and just 3.9rpg with 8 blocks on 51.7% shooting and 10-17 (59%) from the line. Paar is averaging 5.3ppg, 3.9rpg on 54.5% shooting with 5 blocks. Hicks is averaging 2.4ppg in 22.1mpg. Shooting 29% from the field and 0-5 from 3pt. 5-8 from the line. Second on the team with 12 steals. *Gray before the injury issue was averaging 9ppg and 3.5 prg on 6-of-9 shooting and 2-3 from the 3-point line. If Gray can give you 8-9ppg and 4rpg off the bench, he can give Holden a 10-15mpg breather. And can stretch the floor as a S4. When Gibson and Rizzuto return, they have to shoot better or their minutes will decrease from around 22-23mpg to around 15mpg. Hick was getting a lot less minutes than they were off the bench. But I don't know how you don't give Hicks at least 20mpg right now. It probably doesn't matter if he starters or not, but Nolan is not a pure PG and Hicks has six turnovers and 10 assists so far. Six turnovers in seven games is pretty freakin' good for a freshman even if he's not always the primary ballhandler. At least we'll have options.

    I heard Arnold Farmer put up some huge numbers in the weight room. Vito and T-West were also benching and squatting huge numbers for their size.

    Story on CAA expansion

    It’s all about finances at this level.Well, at any level. I do like the creativity. TV is always going to be the center of everything. I think what we need is creativity in the TV part. CBS Sports is fine if we can get 25-30 hoops games and a football game once a week. But get rid of Flo. Find a streaming service to carry everything else. I don’t care if it’s Paramount or Peacock. Probably impossible for them to cover all games with their crews. Put a Game of the Week or have a DHer on Thursday. Everything else would have to be on free schools network. Have a highlights show and an hour coaches show with a short taped segment with every coach.

    2022 Summer Camp Thread

    So 3* who went to Oregon and wound up at Butler CC last season. Has two years left. Redshirted in 2018. Played some as a r-freshman in 2019 and had nine tackles and two QB hurries. Didn't play much in 2020 (doesn't count). At Butler, had 33 tackles and two picks in eight games in 2021. My guess he'll play inside backer since we have so many bodies at the EDGE. I really want to see who can step up as starters. I think we'll have some real competition defensively on the line and at linebacker. But everything is about the pass rush. No pass rush, no pass defense. https://goducks.com/sports/football/roster/mj-cunningham/10038

    Transfers vs. non-Transfers

    According to the internet roster, there are 39 transfers (not 51). Could be a mistake, but anyhow, I wanted to show the divide of my speculative starters. Who are the transfers and who are not? Speculative depth chart. T-for Transfer QB T. Pigrome (Ole Miss/Wky/Md-T) RB J. Bangda (Kent State-T) FB Hamilton LT Josh Roberts (Lafayette-T) LG J. Germain C Cheripko RG Julian Singh (LIU-T) RT Warheit TE Malik Jackson (Md-T) WR J. Allen WR D. Street WR D.K. James (Norfolk State-T) Defense DE Mason Cholewa (JMU/UCF-T) NG V. Shaffer (D2-T) DE J. Gibbs (South Carolina-T) OLB/DE/EDGE T. Reece (Indiana-T) or S. Haltiwanger (SC State-T) OLB D.Raymond/Jamal Gay ILB Mason Woods ILB Ryan Kearney S Robert Topps (Kansas-T) S Juwan Burgess (Indiana-T) CB Dorian Davis (So. Illinois-T) or Makai Self (Penn State-T) CB Sean Tucker (ECU-T) or r-F Shafeek Smith Could be 14 of 22 starters who are transfers and that's conservatively speaking.

    Another Midwest offer. Pretty smooth wing with good handle and nice shot. Willing passer.

    I don’t know if CT returns, but wouldn’t be shocked if he left to play pro somewhere.

    I think you need glue guys like that and put them alongside shooters. Cam has made us a better team because he facilitates as well as any forward we've ever had. If you check out Lowery's Twitter handle, he mentioned "point forward". Love that. He looks like he's pretty long and athletic, and has an excellent handle and if the shot is not there yet, he has over a year to work on it. But if we still have Gibby, along with Conway, Williamson and May and I'm sure a few more transfers who can score, he may be just what the doctor ordered in terms of adding a playmaker to go along with shooters (and Hicks' shot has improved). Cam averaged around 15ppg without having a great jumper and he's not a super athletic slasher. He scored off of put backs, in transition, post ups and FTs. I think we need to add a big, but not sure you do that in the early signing period. Probably will need to get a transfer big. Could also use a 6-8ish Juwan Gray type who is versatile enough to play and defend several positions. But ultimately, we'll need a couple of tranfers scorers to replace Nic and Cam. Tough to rely on just freshmen and sophomores.
