Re: JayCee Carroll-Sports Hero to many in Spain

Not as much of a stretch as you think. He makes the list of top 10 NCAA shooters of all time in at least a couple of rankings: https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2161937-ranking-the-top-10-3-point-shooters-in-college-basketball-history.amp.html www.ncaa.com/news/basketba...

Re: Can we win with only three productive players?

We've lost one more game this year compared to the same date in last season. Some losses this year have been worse (UNLV, AFA this year vs. ASU and Fresno last) but some wins have been better (LSU and Florida vs St Mary's and UC Irvine, to this point.) I think the "can we even win" downplays the fa...

Re: Kuba?

Yes, but within context. Able Porter isn't posting on the low block looking for an open look. But if he is wide open on the low block, shouldn't he take the shot? Of course, why wouldn't he? The point I was making is that we don't run plays for the point guard to post up on the low block any more t...

Re: In conference 3 point shooting... so poo poo

It really is the biggest problem we have had this year. We can't hit open three pointers. Facts, it feels like 3 pointers for these 4 players are wide open almost all the time. And that's the scary thing for next year. They are open for two reasons: Sam and the attention teams give to him. And Quet...

Re: 2 for 19 shooting from 3?

I am surprised no one seems to care how many times Bairstow drives to the basket and either fumbles the ball away or throws up a “shot” that goes straight up not making it within 10 feet of the rim. Those possessions are just as bad as a missed three. To be fair, he did make a much needed layup tor...

I thought he was in, but with KC being so close and with downs to work with- what was the risk reward of challenging?

I wish I could watch Brian Green in Hawaii many years ago. That one was crazy good. There was one against New Mexico State that I loved, too.

Bean has the ugliest shot. Starts it way down mid chest and releases about at head height.
Yet his fadeaway three from the corner a few games back had no hitch in it. I think he has it in him, but needs to get rid of that dang hitch. It's ugly.

No, and it's because of the claim of best all time Utah team. Why? Because they're a p5 school? Give me a break, they've only won 4 games against teams with a record above .500. PAC12 is terrible. Their 2008 team was better, and played better competition.
