Thanks Tania.

This question is not directed at you.

we can practice but we can’t play? Seems a bit odd to me.

Btw schools in the big 10 are doing this as well.
In contrast, Navy can play but can’t practice. I should put “play” in quotation marks, because I’m not sure they even did that.

If the P5 conferences end up playing this will be an epic failure for the MWC.
Canceled way to early in my opinion.
They had to cancel early enough to give the best players and coaches in the conference plenty of time to transfer to schools that will be playing this fall.

He could potentially be a Steve Kerr type of player, someone who can hit the big shot. There is always room for a good shooter who is like a coach on the floor. Unlike Fredette, Sam can play both ends of the floor.
Jimmer can also play both ends of the court. But always offense.
