I really thought Douglas-Stanley was going to do something with us after doing so well in high school. But his shooting has been horrific in college.

Jordan Miller is averaging 5 points and 5 boards at Miami on a laughable 15% 3 point shooting. Safe to say the move wasn’t great for at least 2/3 of our best transfers, and we upgraded across the board.
Coach K knows what he's doing.

"Shevon Thompson ('16) is back in the NBA G League for the first time since 2018 during his first season with the Agua Caliente Clippers. The Jamaican has helped the Clippers jump out to a 6-5 record over the team's first 11 games. In the team's most recent contest against the South Bay Lakers, Thompson notched 13 points (5-7 FG) and grabbed nine rebounds in 13 minutes. He pulled down a team-best 15 rebounds and chipped in nine points in a 115-91 victory over the Santa Cruz Warriors on Dec. 9."

He's being coached again by Paul Hewitt.

"Jumped out to" a 6-5 record??
9-2 or 8-3 is "jumped out to." 6-5 is "they have a record of."
At least in my book.

"4. Arizona Wildcats (11-0)
Previous ranking:
4
This week: at Tennessee (Wednesday)

One of the positives of this past week for Tommy Lloyd's team was bench production. The Wildcats play a pretty tight eight-man rotation, with three transfers shouldering the load off the bench: Justin Kier (Georgia), Oumar Ballo (Gonzaga) and Pelle Larsson (Utah). All three made an impact in wins over Northern Colorado and Cal Baptist. Kier scored in double figures in both wins, and has now hit that threshold in three of his past four games. Larsson hit three 3s in the win over Cal Baptist, his second time this season. The big surprise has been Ballo, who was barely playable at Gonzaga last season. But he has worked on his body and his game at both ends of the floor. Against Cal Baptist, he went for 10 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks in 20 minutes."
 
Outside of Oduro, the guy I desperatively wanted to keep was Kolek and I know KE tried his best to sell him. I watched a few Marquette games earlier this year and Kolek looked good running the point and had a game-winning steal and layup in game in mid-November.

I just looked at his numbers so far and was shocked. He's taken a big step back on the offensive end.


Shooting less than 30% from the field and 22% from beyond the arc. His effective shooting and offensive efficiency has collapsed. This floored me. Now, it's still relatively early and I expect him to improve, still surprising.

An interesting RHETORICAL question: would you take Kolek back, given the decline he's experienced? (I would b/c I think he's that good, but that might not be a good decision.)

There are lots of players who show promise...hit their ceiling early, and plateau. Otis Livingston comes to mind, as do AJ Wilson, Goanar Mar, Vaughn Gray, Vertrail Vaughns, and lots of others.

He’s averaging 5.9 assists and still shooting 82% from the FT line.

From the game log looks like he’s real streaky right now (so shot 7-12 and 5-11 against WVU and Illinois and then shoots 1-6 and 1-8 against UNH and Jacksonville State).

Definitely would love him in the rotation still above our entire bench right now (maybe even starting ahead of XJ). Smart player. Has a knack for getting steals (avg 1.7 per game) and can get hit from 3.

personally I wouldnt take him back
KE gave it his best shot to keep him
and even shouted him out after a great game performance
but he is now part of the past and not the future

Marquette @ Georgetown on Friday Night if someone wants to see him live
