    Alan Griffin is gone, declared and hired a non-compliant NCAA agent. They did get a 5 star kid Benny Williams who's supposed to be good, though. They'll be pretty inexperienced on the whole, but that zone with their length I'm sure will be pretty frustrating.

    Bones Hyland - NBA Thread

    Pacers at 13 better look hard at Bones. He's exactly what they lack. You could go down the line and make the same assessment on multiple teams, but he's instant offense and perfect for the NBA.

    Players Jayden Nunn is a VCU Ram

    Ace absolutely passed the eye test. Metrics might paint a slightly different picture, but he wins. Give me that all day. His stat line might not have been completely eye popping, but neither was Maynor's freshman year (and I'm not trying to draw a comparison because they're two different style...

    Also hopefully it gives Ace the confidence to look for his shot, too. That will put a lot of pressure on the defense if we're not just running the offense to get Bones the ball in his spots every time. The more threats on the floor the better.

    The Official Beat the Nittany Lions of Penn State University Thread

    Pretty distinct size advantage on them. Not sure if the VMI box score is indicative of their normal rotations but really on play one big at 6'9 240. The other big who's 6'8 240 played 9 minutes and no foul trouble. They're deep at guard, but didn't shoot from three particularly well. Sounds like...

    20-21 Opponent Tracking

    Looking at the box score Dayton played 8 guys and got 4 points and 1 rebound out of those guys. 4 guys with 30+ minutes, I believe. Losing not only the NPOY, but Landers and Mikesell, was huge for them. Crutcher is very good and Watson can be great as well, but I'm not so sure about them this...

    It's token, and by design I believe. Biggest thing is make the opponent uncomfortable, throw off their set, and then clamp down if necessary.

    The Official Beat The Utah State Aggies in Sioux Falls South Dakota Thread

    That's a heck of the way to start the season. That will be a good TOURNAMENT team. Rotations will get figured out, but our D saved the day after being lackluster in the first half. According to the rest of the A10 we're down, but we all know we just reload.

    That Zone D was getting picked apart from the high post. No adjustments until they went press when it was too late.

    How about the freshman that's 6'10 185 lbs? Seems like they have a few Porzingis type builds on their team. Also, think they have a big freshman who's heavier, Zapala I believe, who's supposed to be an impact freshman and spell Queta.

    VCU to play in Crossover Classic (Sioux Falls, SD) 11/25-11/27

    The tourney is in a bubble, no? Thus WSU not being able to play since they were denied entry. Probably safer than pretty much any other tournament we could be in.

    VCU to play in Crossover Classic (Sioux Falls, SD) 11/25-11/27

    Agreed on the well coached and share the ball, but Merrill shot 41%, everyone else was low 30s/upper 20s. It will be a contrast of styles, but if we can defend the 3 well and speed the game up I think it could be a good one.

    VCU to play in Crossover Classic (Sioux Falls, SD) 11/25-11/27

    I don't know, shooting averages for the returning players aren't great. Replacing Merrill will be a big task and they're young. Could be nice a match up with a team who has has a similar roster composition as us. They're definitely big, but outside of Queta, not very hefty. Need to use our speed...

    Sweet video. I think this also gives you an idea of the starting lineup plus 6th man. Ace, Bones, Vince, Key, Levi, Corey, and Arnold in Gold. I think Key is first off the bench. Obviously actual minutes are the most important stat, but just an observation.

    2020-21 Season Outlook

    I think the approach to appease all will be minimized by the COVID scholly rules this season. Corey is a Rhoades guy, Stockard will get solid minutes because of his size and strength. Nobody is losing a year. Rhoades can play who he wants as much as he wants and figure out who's really going to...

    2020-21 Season Outlook

    When you're an elite scorer, or the a team's best offensive weapon, the name of the game is separation. Playing on the ball, outside of pick and roll/pop, creating space is difficult. Creating space off the dribble can be done, but again, difficult. Running through screens, being able to cut at...

    Nick Kern has committed to VCU

    Interesting. I didn't catch the post, but I'm assuming you're insinuating there will be a few underclassman defectors from this years team? I don't think it's appropriate to speculate who, but based on freshman year usage and potential I don't think it's as clear cut who will and won't play as...

    Bones will certainly have his work cut out for him and I agree on his usage. I do somewhat disagree on the two bigs, and your worry about our offense is certainly warranted. I just don't think in the past we ever really had a true option, due to depth, to run two bigs. Corey is pretty mobile...
