  1. Saw about 5 minutes of the the game in second half--that's all. Observation: Allick is not a threat to score, so they ignore him beyond layup/dunk range and use his defender to assist elsewhere--where that assistance can have a significant effect.
  2. Speaking of C.J. Wilcher, here's how his brother Simeon is doing at St. John's in the early phase of this season. St. John's has four games: (i) beat Rutgers in an exhibition 89-78, (ii) lost to Pace in an exhibition 59-63, (iii) beat Stoney Brook 90-74, and (iv) lost to Michigan 73-89. Against Rutgers, Simeon played 17 minutes, scored 3 points on 1-2 from three, with 2 rebounds, 5 fouls, 3 assists, 1 turnover and 1 block. Against Pace, Simeon played 17 minutes, scored 4 points on 2-6 from the floor and 0-3 from three, with 0 rebounds, 3 fouls, 0 assists, 1 turnover, 1 block and 1 steal. Against Stoney Brook, Simeon played 9 minutes, scored 3 points on 1-1 from the floor and 1-2 from the line, with 1 foul, 1 turnover and 1 block. Against Michigan, Simeon played 9 minutes, scored 2 points on 1-2 from the floor, with 2 rebounds, 3 fouls, 1 assist, 2 turnovers and 1 block.
  3. Every Husker sports program has improved under Trev's leadership. Every one.
  4. Here's C.J. Wilcher's line from last night--not too shabby, except for the 3 turnovers: 22:51 minutes; 13 points on 4-8 (50%) from the field, 3-5 (60%) from three, and 2-2 (100%) from the line; 5 rebounds; 2 fouls; 1 assist; 3 turnovers; and +/- +13.
  5. Juan Gary will add a spark of quickness between getting the ball in the paint and scoring. He doesn't get bottled up while gathering the ball and getting set to leap, as defenders close in around him. That should help.
  6. Latrell had a good game for Alabama: 28 minutes, 3-5 shooting (2-2 from 3), 0-1 from the line, for 8 points; 4 rebounds, 3 fouls, 4 assists, 1 turnover and 2 steals. Grant: 28 minutes, 4-11 shooting (2-5 from 3), 1-1 from the line, for 11 points; 3 rebounds, 5 fouls, 1 assist, 3 turnovers. And he finished with a +/- of -16. Also, Wake Forest had 4 players with >30 minutes, while Alabama had none: other than Latrell and Grant at 28 minutes each, only one other Alabama player had >25 minutes.
  7. Hunter was 11 of 20 (3 of 8 from three) and 2 of 4 from the line, in 39 minutes, with 4 fouls, 2 assists, 3 turnovers and 4 rebounds. The other volume scorer had 18 shots. Frederickson was 2 of 7–all from three, 1 assist, 2 turnovers, in 31 minutes.
  8. Maybe in years to come we’ll all be amazed at this season, with the injuries and youngsters stepping up:
  9. WHAT ARE EXHIBIT 9 AND EXHIBIT 10 CONTRACTS? Exhibit 9 and Exhibit 10 contracts are commonly referred to as “summer contracts” or “training camp contracts”. These players are being brought in to provide competition in training camp, to give coaches some extra bodies for drills and scrimmages, and sometimes to prove they are worthy of a regular season roster spot. Both Exhibit 9 and Exhibit 10 contracts are one-year, fully non-guaranteed contracts. (A team could technically sign a player who was from another team, or from outside of the NBA, to a four-year, maximum contract on a summer contract (not an Exhibit 9 or Exhibit 10 deal), but that’s never happened and will likely never happen for many reasons.) In addition, they do not count against the salary cap or the luxury tax. They are very much “make good” deals in every sense of the word. If a player proves worthy of sticking around, teams have a few options. We’ll cover the uniqueness of an Exhibit 10 contract in a moment, because it has some different parameters around it. . . . WHAT IS SPECIFIC ABOUT AN EXHIBIT 10 CONTRACT? An Exhibit 10 contract is unique in that it has ties to the G League. Everything works the same as laid out above, with a few key differences.
