Re: Brock Miller defense

I think that Miller is a good defender, one of the best on the team. Probably why we haven't seen any of the Euros playing. Defense is instinct and hustle. He has both. He's growing a player. He get's his 3-point percentage around 45%, I really like our chances of competing in the tournament. I’ll ...

Meh. The stats I noted were through Friday’s games.

By next season this will be Worster’s team. Worster’s shooting will need to improve for it to be “his” team next year. 21% from behind the arc and 39% overall will not get it done. I really have liked Ashcroft’s game. He is undersized but handles the ball well, is a shooter and has a GATA attitude....

Brock is much more maligned than he should be. He has been a starter on two very good Aggie teams.

Here’s my hot take — I think we’ll see a big...

Pathetic post indeed. One game against a team that has dominated us for decades. Pandemic, new system and new coaches, missing starters.

Hopefully our players are a little more resilient than our fans.

And BSU didn’t have to cope with the pandemic, too?
