- Keith's passing improved, but that's about it. He wasn't able to handle an increased usage rate as an efficient scorer. Defense and rebounding remained just ok.

Chris Vogt: D-
- Not sure what his issue was this year. Big drop from last year, especially in true shooting percentage from elite to average.

Mamoudou Diarra: D
- Still a turnover and foul machine as a 4th year player. He did provide some energy and rebounding at times.

David DeJulius: B
- Shooting was disappointing, but his dribble penetration and passing were better than I expected. He can be a good floor general.

Mika Adams-Woods: C
- Typical second year progression reducing foul and turnover rates and improving defense. Shooting took a step back. Still too reliant on dominant left hand.

Jeremiah Davenport: A+
- Big step up in all areas in his second year. My only complaint is poor interior defense and rebounding against bigger 4s, but I didn't expect him to be doing that anyway.

Tari Eason: C+
- He's about what I expected as a top freshman recruit. Tons of ability, but lots of mental lapses. Hoping for a big jump next year.

Mike Saunders: B+
- Showed huge potential late in the season. High turnover rate typical of a freshman pg. Shooting needs work.

Mason Madsen: A-
- I wasn't expecting much, but it's nice to have a fearless shooter. Showed some good instincts on both ends too. Defense needs work.

Coach Brannen: C-
- It's hard to judge him in such a strange year. We don't know what role he played in opt outs. Starting the year with Rap at the 4 was a big fail, but then got the team playing pretty well into March.
I think you could take out all the pluses and minuses and you pretty much hit it on the head. I might upgrade Tari to a B. With Rap starting the year I didn't expect him to play a ton. I also wasn't expecting his rebounding to be as good as it was, or his D, or his blocking. He certainly has some work to do on offense but I think he will get there. I wasn't expecting a LOT of offense from a frosh.

Gabe only played 12 minutes on the season. There is not much to take from that other than he wasn't good on D in that 12 minutes. If he can get in the gym and work on fundamentals he should be just fine. I have no worries about his offense. If nothing else he offers the team another shooter but he's got more than that. After seeing Mason I want Gabe back for sure.

So in light of the last twelve hours we're switching John Brannen's grade to a D+, right?

Probably a C- or D+ prior to the transfers. Now there's no other option than F.
