HELL YES WALK-ONS!

Post by QuackAttackAggie » March 14th, 2019, 9:20 pm

15 REBOUNDS, BEAN? ARE YOU SERIOUS?
6 BIG FTs FOR PORTER? WITH FULL BODY CRAMPS? YES.

HONORABLE WALK-ON MENTION TO BRITO WHO CLEARLY BELONGS ON THIS TEAM AND WON THIS GAME FOR US IN THE 2ND HALF.



9 assists, 1 turnover for Sam when the team had 24 turnovers?

WHAT A TEAM WHAT A GAME

This is honestly the most resilient team I've ever seen play.

They also turned the ball over way too much. Brito was fantastic as was Queta.

Brito has had the quiet leadership role when Sam isn’t on the floor. Brito took charge and calmed the team down a little. It took 35 minutes but once we calmed down, we took control.

[Brito was fantastic the last 16 minutes of the 2nd half. the first half he had way too many unforced turnovers.]

I know Porter didn’t have his best game tonight, but I am really beginning to like what I see from him. Doesn’t back down and is an underrated defender. Glad we have him for two more years. Just need to find another reliable switch it up PG (hopefully TK can put enough work in over the summer to get there) so he can get some rest during these type of games. He is a tough kid.

Porter had ice on both knees after the game. Is that typical?

Amazing! Brito was brutal in the first half, but brilliant in the 2nd. Bean is unreal. He is so relentless. Great game!

I'm glad we were able to put the whole "walk on" thing to bed. These guys are a major part of the winning that is being done on the court.

We’re 12-1 with Porter as the starter.

It is truly remarkable that this team is doing what it's doing with 3 key players originally being walk-ons at USU. If you're walking on at USU you really don't have a ton of options out there.

I have a man-crush on Bean. He is our Dennis Rodman -- but with an actual offensive game. And I'm so glad Smith stuck with Brito. MVP of the second half. Great stuff, Aggies!!

At this point the only person who seriously thinks that is USUBlue. Speaking of whom, he hasn’t been around as much lately. I think Porter and Bean offended him.

In all honesty, Porter played poorly. He turned the ball over way too much and had a hard time stabilizing the offense. But, he was clutch when he needed to be.
Bean really hustled and killed it on the boards and was efficient on offense. He had way too many turnovers, especially for a 4. His defense was bad as he couldn't keep up with Jackson.

That is my honest evaluation.

I get what you are saying and why, but the coaching staff should try to recruit over all of our players. If we aren't bringing in better players, what are we doing? Of course that is easier said than done and I like how the staff developed the holdover players. I like that these players were given a chance, even though successful walk ons happen much less frequently in basketball than football. I don't think it is possible to build a consistently high level basketball program relying on walk ons.

In regards to the football walk-on vs. the basketball walk-on. When you are able to have nearly 30 walk-ons to the football team, you are bound to find a couple of gems every now and then.

I agree. You should always try to find better players.
