    Don’t think this sucks. Hope he beats Xavier.

    A little disappointed, but of the three we were known to be targeting, he’s the one I was the least high on.

    Interested to see which other ball handlers we’ll target.

    Wow...I'm actually kinda surprised. It is what it is, it's not a huge deal, but I assumed it was a good matchup. I'm guessing that Cincy can provide more minutes for him, so can't argue if that's the case.

    I noticed on his flashy Final Two Twitter pic that Cinci was on the left, Butler on the right. As people read, and think, left to right, that implied to me that Cinci was 1 and BU two. Otherwise why not alphabetical? Regardless, I think we can do better....

    Of all the recent recruiting "possibilities" that have been mentioned, I was the least enthusiastic about this one. Short term band aid at best. I know, I say that now after he commits elsewhere. He's an okay player but really not a needle mover. Way too inconsistent. There's a reason he rode the bench more often than not this past season at I.U. Better players in front of him as he got recruited over. Not at all upset and wish him well at Cincy. Would much rather have the scholly to find a younger and better player out there. Apparently this Matta guy is pretty good at recruiting.

    We still need a point guard, and he would've been an experienced stopgap, who's a solid defender.

    For a one year rental though, it doesn't kill us. It's not like he would've been a core program guy.

    I would prefer a better perimeter shooter too (after suffering offensively in the AT era in that regard). We still have to land that guy though, which is easier said than done.

    Archie plus injuries broke him. He’s a great kid and I hope he has a great final year.

    I was kind of indifferent. He could help our current roster, but that speaks more for our lack of PG depth than any love for Phinisee really. I'd like to think we could find another option. But I wouldn't be surprised if next year we are wishing we landed him.

    I was a little surprised by his decision, but landing another PG has to be a critical priority at this point.

    I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the AAC I just loathe. I can’t imagine choosing to play in it over one of the top 6, but hopefully he gets a healthy season down there. He deserves it.

    I could have gone either way with this as well. If this means these minutes go to Myles I’m okay with that too. I think Myles can be a much better defender if he’s got a shot blocker behind him. Still need to fill that role but it’s clearly a priority.
