Call me crazy but I think after this season if he wanted too Evans could go pro, as a sg in the nba, he is going to be a monster for us this year.

You're crazy 😁 I think he finishes his junior before making any decision. But I agree with you on him being a monster. I hope he is ready to be a main focus on the opposition scouting report.

We do not know yet, as we have not received the tickets from Butler at this point. We should know hopefully by the middle of October, but all schools work at a different pace, so we are at the discretion of their ticket office.

About 2 weeks until practice starts. Hope we catch a few breaks this year. Goodness, enough went against us last year for 5 seasons.

So true man. That's what I am hoping for too. I think this team will win more of those close games. I actually like the fact we get rematches at Butler and Iowa St. Those tough losses will be on a lot of players mind.

Without much knowledge, how good is Butler supposed to be? Hinkle won't be an easy place to win, but for some reason I think we can win there.

At Iowa State I am not sure sure.

Sometimes you have to make those breaks happen by digging deeper than the other team. I think we will have a mentally tougher team this year. Having Evans and Washington on the court rather than Thomas and Ellis could be the help we need to win more close games. I think Thomas and Ellis gave solid effort but I'm not sure they had the mental fortitude to be able to stay focused in crunch time.

As a player last year (during crunch time) I would not have wanted to risk trying to get the ball to Ellis most of the time. He was a turnover machine. Thomas often struggled to make anything happen. That takes away options that you need to win close games. The entire team has to trust each other out there not to make mistakes when the game is on the line. If they feel like mistakes may happen with certain players they will avoid throwing the ball to them essentially making it a 3 on 5 scenario.

I agree. Ellis was always tangled up with someone. I like this team. I think they will learn from last year.

Justin Jenifer with the Allen Iverson cornrows. It's going to be a good year, I can feel it.

Jacob Evans also got something going on up there too. #moptop
