Was thinking the same about Jamir and MBJ. Jimmy still looks raw but he does bring energy especially on D.We need to figure out the rebounding situation fast. Our starting bigs vs theirs on the boards 5 vs 31.
Tough night shooting but felt great being on the winners side of a bracket and today didn't hurt at all. Pure joy to watch the Rams during Turkey time.
When Ace figures out how to score on college level competition, look out! Jamir, MBJ and Jimmy look really solid to me.
Plus Williams brings leadership and spark on both sides of the ball. Put him the starting lineup and you could lose that. Unless one of the starters can dod that on the 2nd group.Starting means next to nothing compared to match ups. You realize that if you put Williams in the starting 5, when you go to the second 5, you lose the scoring punch he brings to that group.
Hyland is the only good offensive player we have, right now. Ace is a freshman shooting 16% from the field. Two games, but has a way to go before he’s a threat. Curry and Williams were the next two top returning scorers at 4 ppg. They are Juniors and have proven to be poor shooters so far. Douglas is very limited but is playing within himself Stockard is bringing nothing. Probably statistically the most unproductive player on an 11-21 & 3-15 bad K-State team. I agree it is pointless to have them together. Neither rebound that well, Douglas has always been a decent defender. Seems likeI tend to disagree with you here. Most teams put their best players in the starting line-up and don't worry so much about the second unit scoring punch. Aside from Bones, maybe Ace, maybe Curry sometimes we have no real scoring punch with the first unit. I see no reason to start both Douglas and Stockard. Crap, look at FMooney, he plays his starters 35 minutes every night.
Our guys actually did a decent job of boxing out today... the problem is they had 3 huge guys that don’t quit on reboundsWas thinking the same about Jamir and MBJ. Jimmy still looks raw but he does bring energy especially on D.
I agree that the rebounding discrepancy today was more about personnel. Stockard had position on his guy multiple times only to have his guy get the rebound over him. If it’s going to be like that then why not play Ward more, as he has the athleticism and reach to occasionally get a rebound.Our guys actually did a decent job of boxing out today... the problem is they had 3 huge guys that don’t quit on rebounds
that WV team does that to their entire conference
while you’d like to see us with an even split on rebounds... sometimes it’s just a personnel issue
we’ll be fine... coach has theses kids buying in on boxing out, which can’t be said for other vcu teams
Former Ram thoughts on startingI tend to disagree with you here.
In the case of Tre he is perfect coming off the bench and backing up both Ace and Bones. He will still get his minutes.Former Ram thoughts on starting
