  1. Not that it's a big selling point, but the 25 percent average from deep for King is just last season, when he took only 28 of them. He was at 31 percent the year before, and made 7 of 21 (33 percent) in a limited role as a freshman. And in 2-point attempts, he's made 52 percent in his career. That's good.
  2. And in France, you're automatically registered to vote at age 18. Imagine that ...
  3. "It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times." "Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, that's what the NCAA Transfer Portal is all about." “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better place that I go to than I have ever known.” "It matters not what someone is born, but where they transfer to."
  5. That's OK. I used to call Nate Johnson "Magic."
  6. Hey, he turns 18 this week. He may be 6-9 by next year. Start? Toss-up, but Walker will be four years older with two years of P5 experience under his belt, so ...
  7. Nobody's asking for a miracle next year. If we can get to 7-8 conference wins and be competitive most of the rest of the games, maybe we squeeze out an NIT bid. Maybe not. However, our seniors next year appear to be Webster, and maybe Thor and Green. None of them may start, though Webster could play significant minutes, starter or not. Here's a rotation-plus: Webster, Sr. Banton, So. Allen, Jr. King, Jr. Stevenson, Jr. Walker, Jr. Mayen, Jr. Ouedraogo, So. Thor, Sr. Cross, So. Green, Sr. That's 11 deep, so a couple of those players are likely to see only spot minutes. If you look closely, that's the kind of experience we had in 2017-2018, when we won 13 conference games — lots of juniors, lots of transfers, raw young big men. Would anyone have put Palmer or Petteway on all-conference teams before they played their first games here? Again, I'll be happy with 7-13 or 8-12 in conference, but to dismiss the team because of transfers and youth, that's premature. Replace Green, Thor and Webster with Tominaga, Sallis and Whitt, turn all of those juniors into seniors, and add a legit big man in Sanogo, that team enters 2021-2022 with a chance to contend. I see the plan in effect. It has worked here, to a lesser extent, with a coach who doesn't have Hoiberg's pedigree of success in doing the exact thing at another university.
  8. I know of something that can help keep your wits about you.
  9. Could be. Or, if you want Banton, King and Allen out there with, say, Stevenson and Walker/Ouedraogo, Webster could play about 20 minutes at the point, Banton could play 20 minutes at the point and another 10-15 giving King and Allen a break. If Thor stays, there's another option to spell Allen at the 3. In other words, Banton and Webster could split time at the point, with Banton starting.
  10. It's as if, when Yvan starts to go up for a shot, he's really just 5-foot-7 and not 6-foot-8. At that point, he just looks so much shorter than the guys guarding him.
