Re: Formal apology to Brock Miller

Regarding defense, the Aggies have allowed 52, 48, 53, 45, 46 and 45 points in their last six games. That doesn’t happen unless EVERYONE is playing great defense. Give me data that supports such an over-arching statement. Not everyone on the team excells at defense. Uh, when you’ve statistically be...

I also think at least one of Stastny, Vedischev, or Shulga leaves or is counseled out.

Re: May be putting the cart before the horse, but....

I also think the future is bright. HOWEVER, this isn't a cut & dried superstar guard lineup.

That is a very small backcourt overall and could struggle defensively. Ashworth is very small (height & weight). Worster is also really struggling shooting the ball. I wouldn't crown them just yet.
