TransferPG/Mickey/Ddj
TransferSg/SF/maw/Mason
Davenport/Eason/transferSG/SF
Tari/TransferPF/C/spell
TransferC/PF/lahkin

I see us needing upgrades at G and rim protectors. Get two guys that can play 1-3 preferably and couple 6’10 or better rim protectors/rebounders

I'm still confident we can compete next year. I don't think this needs to be a 4 year project. I feel like JD's Sr year should have a solid shot at the tournament with him, MAW, and Saunders. Gotta add some people to it, but its not a bad place to start.


Year 2 right now looks better than year 2 did 2 years ago.

That right there is a huge difference.
Yea, Miller's teams absolutely heave 3-pointers. I don't mind it so much as a general philosophy, but hopefully they can hit a few more here than they did there.

Even with a really good shooting team, there are going to be games where they just kill themselves with a ton of misses. It is part of the bargain you make.

Of course, every coach says that. Even guys who coach at the slowest pace in the world always promise they are going to "run more if the opportunity is there"

Saunders first to commit Brannen and Miller?

Yeah but his teams actually do it. He doesn't say they are going to do it every offseason and then they don't.

Miller has some wild stuff in how his previous teams have played. He's coached teams that played the 6th fastest overall tempo as well as the 319th fastest.

They've been between 67.5 and 67.9 possessions per game the past 3 years. Mick never went above 67. Brannen's first year we were 68.1.

I don't have the average length of possession on offense, but I've heard his teams are top 100, but they force you into longer possessions on defense.

Yeah, he likes to pressure the ball after made FG in order to bleed the shot clock and make it hard to run your offense, which will slow the overall pace even if you play fairly quick on offense.

There is a general truism in college basketball that the fans all want the team to play faster and the coaches all lie about how fast they intend to play to placate the fans, though. It isn't a UC thing; every single coach talks about playing faster in every offseason presser.

I understand coach speak isn't coach do all the time. But a hybrid of Cronin and Brannen ball sure would be nice. Play D, rebound, push tempo and shoot 3's. Those can all be done. Cronin didn't have the depth (that he could trust) to keep up the pace. He had to slow it down on purpose to keep fresh legs. I want to do both but you need depth

Yeah, I don’t take anything they say at a press conference serious. As far as play style. They all say the same things at a press conference. Play fast, tough, etc.....

But yea I have no idea
I hope. Would love to see him play with some experience and confidence. I just think if you have options close to home, or closer to home, you’ll probably lean that way.
