The dude just return from a mission. It is impressive that Dorius is already making a positive impact so soon.

Overall I liked what I saw last night. He just needs to be stronger with the ball and try to keep it above his head when in the paint. Had it stripped a couple of times.

He looks better than i expected. I think with some coaching he will develop into a good player. The main thing i saw last night was his positioning on defense and moving his feet. His guy drove around him too easily. That will come with time and work!

Sap is right. He needs to get stronger. This will help him in all facets of his game.

You can't go wrong with a 7 footer that has some skill and is willing to walk-on.

He did good but we needed to take him out sooner at the start of the second half. Not quite in basketball shape.

He's solid. Glad he's a Freshman. He's not as athletic as Kuba, but he's a little stronger and will be here for three more years.

I was blown away by his speed end to end. He is FAR from a stiff. Very pleasantly surprised.

I think Dorius has far more potential than Kuba and is already much stronger. Kuba is easily pushed around and is awkward in his movements (not uncoordinated but just a little gangly and slow). I thought Dorius looked better at blocking out and using his body which is wider than what Kuba has to work with.

I'm glad we have both and I'm glad we'll have Dorius for years to come.

Agreed. That's why I've been confused we haven't seen Dorius getting more minutes. I'm sure there's a good reason for it, but I've been nothing but impressed with his performances.

I thought they should have put him in a little earlier against St Mary’s. We came out strong but then they had a little run to pull back to even and their big guy was hurting us during that run. I thought he should have come in during that stretch before they caught all the way back up to us.

Dorius is pretty good at getting up and down the floor, and he's a willing rebounder. But he is not "quick twitch" in any way. Just doesn't seem to have a lot of court awareness, at this point. A lot of that is attributable to the fact that he's been away for a couple of years. There was an example, I think in the second half, where Malik Fitts was on the wing with, I think, Brito guarding him. With his back to the basket, he made a fake left and then spun to the right and made an easy dunk because Dorius just stood under the hoop watched him. I think as he gets back into playing shape he'll see that fake, and anticipate the next move, and move over and block the path of the offensive player, rather than just stand there and watch him dunk.

He's a work in progress, with a lot of upside potential.
