Regarding Bacon....he transferred in from Coppin so it make take him some time to adjust to A10 level of play.....and certainly Bad Boy Mower level of play. If this had not been a Covid year, he may have sat out this season to work on his game with the team in practice. Now he gets an extra year and gets to actually learn - on the job - as in real games this year.I share your optimism. Lots of teams have big guys that sometimes look awkward. It's probably more pronounced on our team b/c we have so many truly athletic wings and guards. But Stockard and Medley-Bacon have the one thing you cant teach or learn -size. We need there big bodies. They will get better. I think there will be more than once they step up and help us in a big way this season.
As for Stockard, I think he is still trying to get used to our speed and style of play. He certainly has skills and once he gets used to our speed and style, he will contribute even more.
Meanwhile both Ward and Corey are doing a great job for us under the basket. Throw in Brown-Jones, Levi, and Bacon as they build their way into our game........Our front court is looking great. Hopefully we stay injury free.
