Re: MW Attendance Numbers for 2019

Guys there are 190,000 people within 35-40 minutes of the stadium That is the cache metro plus Box Elder. I do not think the attendance was terrible, but of course it is not great, and night games later in the year are tough, but then Boise play's almost all their games at night. The one we should ...

Queta Improved FT Shooting?

It was a very small sample size, but he went 4/4 and looked much more smooth and comfortable from the line. My guess is he will be a ~70% or so FT shooter this year which would help us a lot. You can tell he worked on this during his rehab and it will pay off.
