    I agree a lot is based on hope.

    The ideal (defensively) is Nze at the 5 who was a strong + defender in his last year playing. Let’s hope that translates.

    Lastly, Hastings could be the athletic, defensive minded 4 we needed this past year. This is probably even more hope than Nze given he is a RS frosh.

    I remember reading several comments to the effect that Hastings has been impressive in Butler practices—this gives me some hope that he can indeed play nice role minutes as a 4 defender next year. More to the point—can anyone repeat what they have heard regarding Hastings or was I misremembering?

    He’s got a long way to go in terms of game awareness but I do like his tool. I’m extremely disappointed he didn’t redshirt. I think he still needs to learn the game for another season before he is ready for major minutes. I have hope he can be a suitable backup next season.

    Smits is Fowler 2.0, or at least he was in HS.

    Probably so. I am just thinking available, easy to target bigs to plug a hole for a year. And then fight like hell for a couple on the recruiting trail. I'm no Smits fan, but am a fan of anything that would keep McDermott or Tucker from playing the 4 for major minutes.

    We could probably get away with Nze playing big minutes at the 5 with Wagner at the 4

    I saw Smits play at Evansville this year. If the board had problems with Fowler, it would go crazy with Smits.

    Is TJ Holyfield any relation to Michael Holyfield who Omar Lowery mentored at Sam Houston State?

    Yes. I used to have some really good contacts in the SFA program. Tj can hoop.

    Brad Underwood was his first coach and I heard he was going to OSU with Brad but that never materialized. Wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him at Illinois.

    For those of you who are upset at the idea of Brunk leaving, were you also critical of Fowler this season? You can’t be both. You can’t hope that Brunk stays when he wasn’t able to beat out the player you were so critical of all season. Nze gives us hope, Brunk is rinse, repeat.

    I'm not upset, gives us a chance at least to get something more out of that position. Golden has a higher ceiling, Nze could be better, and maybe you can nab a big in the transfer market. Someone that can go for 8 and 8 or 10 and 8ish. Nothing spectacular but a plus defender that gives a little scoring.

    I obviously have no contacts nor did I know anything about a Brunk possibly transferring; however, watching him this year I am not surprised at all. After watching some of these midmajor tournaments I really think he can be a really important piece to a team on the verge. I just don’t think he has the speed for major D1 talent night in night out. Great kid, and if he does leave I wish him all the best. He’s been through a lot and deserves to be happy and have a great time playing this game.
