    I do like Nze but I like the potential of coles and wilmoth more

    Plus the freshman seem to connect with each other so much

    I think an underlying problem with the team is the freshman came on together stoked to play together and take over the program, so when the finally all play together they are in their element

    Let me say also

    Nze has been very improved this year to last with what he can do. I have been impressed

    I’d like Nze back. AT can’t shoot and can’t stay healthy. He has been a great player but I think you called it a while ago... we need a PG that other teams have to guard...

    She was also better than Lappas, Gillen, Gottlieb, Duke Vitale, the people on BTN, etc.

    The best is Bill Walton, however. At least if you want to listen to anything other than the game going on.

    I think Thompson has plenty of value, but I think we’re making a mistake by playing Thompson at 1 and Tate at 2 when they play together for this exact reason.

    I’d love to see Thompson back but we should play the best players and best lineups, whether that includes AT or not is TBD but his leadership is invaluable.

    I do think Nze is the most important guy to bring back though.

    What was Lavall so hot about with Wilmoth at the end of the game?

    Sorry if it's been discussed. I just finished game. Since I got off work late.

    Part of Seton Hall poor performance was the D. Butler deserves some of the credit.

    I wondered the same thing. Went back and watched it to make sure I saw it right. But he was hot about something.

    I think Hummel does a good job on BTN, actually really liked his games he was paired with Gaudin. Other than that though, yeah she was better than a lot of more notable folks, and deserves better than the PBP guy she was paired with.

    Walton has his audience, but I'm not a huge fan simply because he talks about anything except the game. Earlier this year I did find it funny when his partner made a Bill Walton bingo card and anytime he spoke about certain off topic subjects he'd mark it off. 10 minutes into the 1st half he tells Walton what he's done, holds up his card, and 2/3 to 3/4 of the topics he wrote down Walton had already discussed, so I assume he talks about a lot of the same stuff each broadcast.

    Which they wouldn’t have needed to do if the Miami game hadn't been a last minute scratch after pictures surfaced of two Carolina players partying while breaking Covid protocols less than 48 hours before tip. SMDH.

    It looked as though Wilmoth was told not to press but to get back on defense.

    I wouldn't go that far, and anyone who believes Walton is the best, has very suspect judgement. ;)

    I get the feeling that, if we can get some players that space the floor and demand significant attention, Nze would be able to operate pretty well against someone one on one. That and don't forget he is shooting ~40% from 3. Once he recovered physically from COVID, he's been borderline pretty good.

    You take Nze on next year's team 10 times out of 10. It's a no-brainer.

    Yeah last year he shot 67% and I think he’s certainly a more dynamic player this year. I think he’s probably our only player who would start for most teams in the conference.

    He probably still won't be Mr. Fastbreak, though...

    Does this mean LJ has not lost the team?

    1. It would be pretty rose colored glasses to think that we won the game more than Seton Hall lost it. The last two games X and SH shot 8-43 on threes. I seem to remember a lot of them being open looks. That being said we really needed a win and given all the team has been through, seven BE wins looks pretty good.
    2. I think Coach changed the defense every time SH called time out because they were setting up a play to get a good look. That is why we switched from the zone after we got up 12, I think. Smart.
    3. One reason we shot well on our free throws we had the right guys shooting them ( although NZE hit 4). I suppose you could not expect the national people to actually know that.
    4. Bolden is dangerous when he can catch and shoot, and plays with at least three other real scorers. He is not someone that shoots as well off the dribble, at least from three. That is just who he is. If he was in a situation where he had squared up looks, he has showed what he can do. Our offense have not given him many this season.
    5. Congratulations to the team.

    I wasn’t able to see the first half (celebrating my wife’s big raise), but definitely got to see the team take Mamu out of his comfort zone and Harris start to look like the next big thing in the 2nd half. Also, that tap out to Bolden was Grade-A Butler basketball. I’m hoping they keep the momentum up and into the offseason!

    Earlier this year you all killed me for suggesting that even if AT came back, he may not start. Now some of you are hoping he doesn’t. Interesting world. AT bogs down the O because he can’t shoot outside 2-feet. Love the guy, but you’re not winning many high-major games if the player with the ball can’t shoot.

    The pbp guy is John Sadak, the Reds new TV pbp guy. He’s very highly regarded in the industry, but he does lower-tier college basketball in the winter since that’s not his strongest sport.

    I looked him up and saw that re: the Reds. Isn’t that because their guy last year made a gay slur or did something else on the air that Willis will probably celebrate but the rest of the world knows is wrong?
