Hopefully they get the offseason treatment they need. Gary just got his cast off, and I know Evans needs some work done on his knees.

To add on to that, we need to really appreciate the leap Jacob Evans made from Freshman to Soph.

like it was kinda ridiculous:

FG%: 37% to 47% on more attempts
3pt%: 33% to 42% on more attempts (went from ok to great)
Offensive rating: 112 to 124 (124 is absolutely elite, Josh Hart was 122.3)
2pt%: 42% to 51%


If Evans ups his usage and his efficiency stays the same; He is gone after next year and will be a 1st round pick.

The combine showed a lot of players don't have 40" Max Verts and I heard that Evans has anywhere from 42-44. He is not only uber ahtletic, he is very skilled. And at a position that is most desired in the NBA right now.

Appreciate having him

Seriously, one improvement concerning going to the bucket and he will be a real handful! Perhaps the most impressive thing I like about Evans (and Clark for that matter) are they are just great kids.

I am hoping Broome asserts himself as a leader because it would be nice to have our C and PG being in that mold. The rest of our guys are kind of soft spoken but just get the job done. Washington will need a little help with being vocal out there.

Just from watching Broome's body language on the bench this year, he seems like a pretty demonstrative guy. I am confident he will be a vocal leader on the floor.

@SInow
Can Evans, Washington, Cumberland lift Cincinnati into the nation's elite?

For better or worse, he was also crazy consistent when you look at his actual game stats. Some guys average 13.5 ppg by scoring 30 one game and 0 the next (Malik Monk this year for example).

UC has a chance to be really special this year. Their start 5 can rival just about anyone in the country. And there aren't any below average upper classmen stealing playing time from younger, better players this year. I can't remember the last time I could say that.

I've been away from the site for a bit and haven't had time to keep up with it. Did we discuss Gary have a foot cast and now being in a walking boot?

He had some minor clean up work done on the ankle that had been bothering him since the injury just prior to the 2016 AAC Tournament...
