  1. Braveheart is my favorite movie, hard stop. So if it counts as a war movie, then that's my tops. Also, South Pacific is a great musical that happens to also be a war movie. Schindler's List is quite the tearjerker, and one that I can only watch about once per decade but it is so well done.
  2. Anyone seen any highlights from his college career? I've watched his HS highlights but would like to see how he's progressed since then. Based on his high school footage, he looks like a prototypical stretch 4. Long and lean, not a ton of upper body strength. Very good ball handler and shooter for his size. Doesn't appear to box out very well; relied on length and athleticism to nab rebounds over smaller/less athletic defenders. His high school footage reminds me a bit of a young Walt Pitchford, but a couple inches shorter and with more polished ball-handling skills. Doesn't demonstrate a ton of lateral defensive quickness, but also didn't need to as he was able to defend well using his superior length in HS. I'd love to see how he's developed in the past 3-4 years. A few years of college coaching may have cleaned up his rebounding technique and lazy feet on defense. If so, then this guy is a steal for us.
  3. I'd put either Tai or Lance over Glynn. Glynn stayed four years but was never "The Man" nor did he play on a Tourney team. Lance didn't give us many years, but was easily our best player while here. Tai was both a solid role player on our most productive team of the decade, and was our best player in his senior season. I'd probably go with Tai among those three choices, but could be convinced to give Lance the nod instead. Glynn is a second teamer in my book. Ubel and Roby are pretty close to each other, but I think they got it right going with Roby. The other three first teamers were locks.
  4. Speaking as a former HHCC winner, I hate to tell you that the prize ain't all it's cracked up to be. Especially once the taxes take 1/3 of it!
  5. I like the prospect of all 3 redshirts. Stevenson probably has the highest floor, but Blanton has the highest ceiling. I'm happy to have Walker even if he is basically an older version Yvan. I feel like all three would be in the rotation this year if eligible.
  6. I may not have a crystal ball, but I can predict with a high degree of certainty that our lineup will not resemble this.
  7. I really think our starters will be Mack/Burke/Banton/Allen/Yvan. Walker platoons with Yvan, while Shamiel and Thor give the other four starters breathers. I think it will be an uphill battle for anyone else to get serious minutes. I hope I'm wrong, but I could see Jervay and HCFH mutually parting ways.
  8. My thoughts exactly. In a season with very little chance at post-season play, I'd like to get an athletic in-state kid some minutes so that he can take his lumps now. Akol appears to have a very high ceiling (although admittedly also a low floor).
