    Again Jim you are assuming we run some semblance of a non stagnant offense

    That’s a good point, I think we are going to see a lot more AJ doubles this year, I hope they’ve been getting him prepared to pass out of it and have been coaching up Javon/Miller on where they need to be flashing when they see their man leave for the double. It was so frustrating when teams could double Shevon with impunity because we didn’t have anyone who could hit a 3 to punish them for it. Need to get some sets drawn up for when this happens and drill it into these guys heads so everyone knows what to do when it inevitably comes.

    Nah I just know AJ is smart and unselfish and he realizes teams are gonna focus on stopping him.

    I know it's 2020 and zone defenses are out, but our hand may be forced if we don't land another solid big. Besides, the Raptors are bringing it back like mom jeans.

    I would really love to see the double team, ball reversal, and a Jim McKay Chevrolet three pointer made by Tyler Kolek a lot this season.

    Just hand AJ and Oduro 16 hours of Will Thomas passing out of double teams and tell them to watch it 16 hours a day.

    Jai Lewis was pretty good at passing out of a double team too. I enjoyed his passes to Lamar for an open 3 very much back in the day haha.

    Well it looks like the games begin November 25th

    who will mason play out of conference? Will any team be ranked below 300 in RPI? Will mason win more than 6 conf games? Will Brad extend dave even if the team sucks and have us lose our minds?

    guess we can all find out soon! Let’s discuss since it looks like in another 2 months we will have college hoops.

    Paradise Jam which Bona is in will be held in DC. I bet Junkanoo gets held somewhere similar. Our field is actually a lot better than there’s

    Kolek looked pretty good on that little Twitter video they showed of practice -- little drive and feed to Cali for an easy bucket, losing Greene behind a screen with a little pump fake and scoring (he also got schooled by Miller, but that's OK). I mean, yeah, it's only :36 seconds, but he looks comfortable out there with the vets.

    I will never understand why you guys take highlight videos so seriously. Hell the BBW juco kid with 0 offers other than ya looks like an absolute monster in highlight videos. JDS highlight videos had jim rubbing his nips and everyone else drooling. It’s a damn highlight video

    It’s also practice and not a game, but nothing wrong with liking some of what you see, especially when it comes to basketball IQ stuff: using screens, pump fakes, knowing where your outlet pass is and not just barreling to the rim.

    Greg made a contested layup on that pass proving pigs do fly. I wish lil Jack hit a three in one of these so you guys would start asking if he should get real minutes lol

    We know Jack can dribble and that's about it. We'll see...I have a feeling you're going to be eating your early assessment of another freshman this season, though.

    Considering how much you crapped on him, I'd say 4 good games, against some of the better bigs in the A10, mind you, is definitely eating your words.
