Re: Recruiting

I think you have to have a certain type of athlete to fill those hybrid guard roles. Neither Sam, nor Porter, are it and I love them both. We will not get over the NCAA hump without a quicker, more athlete guard. My opinion.

Re: Recruiting

It’s strange to not see us being linked anymore to any of the many grad transfer PGs that are available given we’ve lost three guys in the last few months who played time at the PG spot (TK, JK3, and Ainge). Since it seems we aren’t hot after any grad transfer PG, I wonder if the plan is to have Sa...

Re: The Refs

I thought the refs were fair on both sides. I'm usually very critical of the officiating, I thought it was fine. This is big boy basketball and they're going to let them play down low. Fact is, we turned the ball over, did not rebound defensively and missed a whole bunch of shots we have been making.

I've just never gotten as worked up over the incident by the locker rooms as a lot of folks here have.

Re: This writer thinks UNLV could potentially lure away Craig Smith. Haha

I believe the author was using Coach Smith as an example of what a young, up and coming coach could do and the price would be lower. I don't think he was saying UNLV is going to go after Coach Smith.

I think we do all 4 of those things pretty well. I'm looking forward to how Coach Smith prepares our guys. I have no doubt they will be. I think having Miller continue to break out of his slump will be key for us.

Re: Aggies are a #8 seed!

One advantage we have against the zone is Queta's ability to pass. He's an excellent passer with great vision and we've seen it throughout the year. We've just got to knock down those outside shots when he finds the guy. We also do a great job of moving the ball around the whole court and spreading ...

Re: Aggies are a #8 seed!

I like that we potentially get to see where we are as a program by facing one of the more storied programs in the country. I like the Washington matchup and think it will be a competitive game. I think we have a great chance to move into the 2nd round.

There were two plays last night that damn near caused my heart to stop and it made me realize how fortunate we've been this year with injuries.

Dropped to a 10 seed in the latest ESPN bracket. To be honest, I wouldn't hate it if this was how it ended up. I think we compete in the first 2 rounds pretty well against this group.
