Nolley, Davenport, DDJ and Newman are solid guys. By not that good, I mean he's not an elite player. Yes he's good, they are all guys you are probably happy to have as the 3rd-6th best players on...

My argument is that we have a bunch of middle the roster guys and one proven shooter. We don't have an elite player who could start for any team.

It might be hard to crack into the middle of...

We should play our best players, but it's not unthinkable Reed/Skillings or even Hensley/Ody could be one of our 5 best players.

The comparison point is that our projected top players (DDJ,...

We have a lot of depth, but little (if any) high end talent. There are minutes available anywhere for a top level guy.

If Vik, Hensley, Skillings or Reed can play at a high level, there's no...

It definitely brings up the question of who isn't getting minutes, it sounds like Wes is going to have an open competition and may the best player win. Hopefully the locker room stays healthy when...

EvanMiya for the most part matches up with what fans/coaches say. Newman and MAW are two guys who have been praised (by Wes/Brannen) for doing everything right, doing the little things and the...

I think combining EvanMiya which is team based stats (how well does the team play when you are on the floor) and also dependent of how well the guy subbing in/out for you plays and Synergy which is...

Yeah, they don't match up exactly, but they are similar enough that it helps to confirm they are using the same data set (only EvanMiya's are adjusted to exclude meaningless possessions).

Yeah, I even wrote D2 next to Ashland so I'd remember, then I subtracted out the Alabama A&M numbers and wrote their name here. I corrected it now.

Good finding the adjustment. Excluding...

Over on 247 someone posted synergy defense grades and Davenport graded out as good. Of course synergy isn't perfect either (it focuses more on 1v1 defense than team defense), but it's probably the...

No promises that I made no mistakes, I'm more confident that I got the starters right as they were almost always in the same order (unless someone was out due to injury). I agree with Waterhead that...

I'm curious how much of a chance Wes will give Skillings and Reed (and maybe even Vik, Ody and Hensley). Last year he pretty much set the rotation at the start of the season and didn't change it a...

That I support. Whatever it takes to get DDJ to be the (nominal) PG and play Newman/Nolley at the same time. I'd prefer to avoid running out an undersized pair of guards (Phinisee/DDJ) regardless...

On the other hand, MAW played over twice as many minutes which meant more fatigue. He was our highest rated defensive guard and a top 1-3 defender on the team by almost every measure on EvanMiya...

Yeah, I say pretty much every year that fans overestimate the impact transfers will have and how good they are or will be. As you say there just aren't that many good transfers.

I agree that +/- is best as a supplement, but I would argue that is true for pretty much all stats. I don't think it is worse than any other stat over the course of the season. Per game variance is...

It's true that Nolley 5.3 fta per 40 minutes and Ezikpe 6.1 fta per 40 minutes got fouled quite a bit more than anyone on our team (DDJ led us at 3.3 FTA per 40 minutes). So that's a positive.

I've become less convinced Davenport's minutes will go down. Davenport is the only proven sharpshooter on the team. Hard to put the only shooter on the bench when you've got a team full of not very...

Landers had a really good season as a Sophomore shooting 38.6% from 3 which is what pulls his average up. Though he still shot 98 long 2's to 40 close 2's.

The big difference in that season is...

As always once we sign a guy I look more closely at his stats.

Nolley is by far our biggest addition in the transfer portal. Glad he came here. I'm a bit surprised he didn't get an NIL deal to go elsewhere (or maybe we are getting in the NIL game).
