Re: Queta ughhhh

We are going to be very good again next year. Bean, Anthony, Anderson, Kuba, Miller, Bairstow, McChesney, Ashworth and Dorius is a good base from which to work. Yeah I don’t disagree and also think we have great potential for a special season next year as well but losing Sam, Queta, and even Brito ...

Re: #9 in Rebounds per Game

Maybe he just needs to be pressured did you see his three in the last minute of st. mary's? True. He went from 1-10 on his career to 2-11. The sample size is too small to draw many conclusions, but as others have pointed out, his form looks MUCH better 15 feet and in than it does from beyond the arc.

My concern with Porter is his decision making. He seems to drive as fast and hard as he can nearly all the time without any thought.
Hence three charging calls in a single game. That's just poor decision-making.

I think it has more to do with the fact he's missed 1/2 the season. When healthy he's one of the best players in the MW!
I think what's more telling is that even by playing 1/2 a season more, none of our players could catch him.

His mediocre A/TO ratio suggests otherwise. While he may occasionally get his pocket picked and pick up a few charges here and there to account for some of those TOs, the bulk of them come in the passing game.

Bean definitely deserved the MVP award. Other than 2-3 ugly turnovers and an unnecessary 3P attempt in the first half of the LSU game, Bean played fantastic ball.
