    Has anyone heard how he's looked in practice, scrimmages, etc.?

    Interested in seeing him start playing for us in December. Really feel like we could use more scoring punch.

    Will he be eligible to play against University of Indiana-Bloomington? </sarcasm>

    Recruits missing jumpshots in highlight videos, the boat sinking at the end of Titanic, Jason Statham being type-cast, and hearing players look bad in practice... something seems off?

    Everything I know about Jordan Tucker is that he's a shooter. Accurate?

    Just wondering because it seems like this team's half court offense could really use a forward who can drive and finish at the rim but instead of providing balance and scoring in the paint he makes us a team that can put 4 (and maybe 5 with Fowler) legit shooters on the floor at once?

    Correct. From everything I've heard, we can fairly expect some good shooting but should keep expectations for everything else tempered for now. Can he rebound? Defend? Drive? Distribute? Don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know. But I'm expecting him to hit threes.

    I hope he will put it on the floor. From the one practice I saw, he will not be shy about shooting. Shot selection could be something that gets discussed from time to time. Hopefully, things get opened up a little so Baldwin gets some help. We are leaning on him pretty heavily to create, right now.

    I don’t care how many “bad” threes he takes if he’s making, say, 37% of them overall. What will make me lose it is if he’s taking long, tough twos with any frequency.

    What if he is making 55% of his long twos?

    I would be interested to know the backstory on how and why he chose Butler.

    Anyone know when he's officially able to play? Last day of classes for first semester is 12/14. Is he then eligible for the IU game on 12/15? First day of classes for second semester is 1/14, so hopefully he can play before then?

    Lol then why wouldn’t he extend his range one foot and get a whole other point?

    He’s eligible now. They’re holding him out to deploy him as our secret weapon when the opponents LEAST expect it.

    If I was better at the Internet I would figure out how to reply with laughing/crying emojis to this post.

    the last person to join and ask didn't take too kindly to the hazing. I figured I would do my part to try to make this place a little more inviting.

    The question has been asked at least 5 times in this thread alone. A little hazing is called for.

    Any concerns out there about tuckers defense abilities?
    I know he is def athletic enough and long enough to play defense but is there or has anyone seen anything live or from his high school days?
    I think he his a lot to prove and will be a great two way player
