Pretty sure it was his own security, not VCU police, that escorted him off of the court. Mike Eades is the coordinator of SEC officials, and those were SEC officials. I think his bigger problem is going to be calling out officials from his own conference. That could very well garner him a fine from the SEC.
Yep, knew that, but a security official had to physically pull him off the floor. That kind of sh*t just shouldn't be happening. It wasn't even a conference game, nothing on the line, and that was his reaction.

My take is Stackhouse's own security was more concerned about the safety of Stackhouse than he was "pulling" him off of the court. You're in an opposing arena that is fired up. The last thing his security wanted was for him to be hit with something from the stands.

Didn't think about that, but had his asst. coaches, and that guy not intervened I think we'd have had a physical altercation.

Is it me or are the 3s coming rushed and not in the open corners for instance? I do remember a wide open corner 3 badly missed by Jackson but not many more. Seems like the shooters are not finding space or the permitter passing in the halfcourt offense is not giving players off the ball enough space. That can be helped by more inside out passing. Unfortunately VCU's bigs have trouble receiving or giving passes. Or at least it seems that way to me.
Agreed. When we go inside to Deloach the chances of a kick out are slim and none. They collapse and strip and he makes it easy by always putting it on the floor.

I think all of this is just a group of kids who haven't jelled into a team yet. That is on the coaches to get them thinking pass when you need to, and shoot when it's the right time. Don't force shots, use your teammates.

Shriver’s 3’s are often rushed, which is his biggest problem. Zeb has had some bad misses. His form looks pretty good, but his feet are often turned and not pointed at the basket. That will mess a shot up.
I agree I think we need to run plays to get him going early. Nunn as well.

You really believe Shriver is the type of talent we should run plays for?

Regardless of his "talent" he is here for the year and has shown he can make a shot at a high % when his feet are set and he doesn't rush it. If he's going to be out there we may as well put him in the best possible spot. It's not like we have a group of proven D1 shooters behind him.

Sorry, I have to disagree with that...A handful of coaches were having trouble keeping him under control and there is absolutely no reason to think any student or fan would even have a reason to throw anything at him. He just made an ass of himself and gave us 4 free throws. I know of no history of anything being thrown from the fans in the Stu...There was that one can of beer at the Coliseum but that was even weak.

All you have to do to see he's proven he can shoot it off the dribble is look back at last year. He did it all season long.
I think the argument that he is playing against longer better athletes and at a faster pace may be valid. Its unlikely that he had to face that in the America East last year.

If you look at the 5 teams that are high level, better athlete type teams he's struggled. ASU, Pitt, Memphis, and Vandy 6-26 with and 0-9 egg agains Memphis.

To me Chill makes a great point. Its unlikely that at 6'6 and playing in the AE, he ever had someone in his face that was actually in his face.

Regardless this isnt shoot around. Its live gamete and he really needs to get it in gear. I like the way his shot looks. I am just hoping that he can put it together. We need him.

I stated earlier that Josh Banks could play he just needed time and confidence. Most if not all on this board disagreed at the time. Regardless, Josh proved me correct.

I am not confident that Shriver can do more than just shoot, he'slow and foul prone. However, I am confident that this kid can shoot it. I am just wanting him to fix what he needs to fix and start ripping the nets. We really need that. If he can sit him and let one of the other guys who can contribute in other ways get those minutes.

They totally ruined the "Hit Jerry Stackhouse in the head with a beer and get $1.00 off your next Papa Johns Pizza" promotion...

He's already getting open looks and not hitting them. Baby steps. Let him start hitting the open shots he's getting first, THEN maybe start running somethings for him. I'm sorry, I'm not running play for a .275 three point shooter. This ain't Hartford. Prove it in 2022-23 first.

As I think about it, I'm not sure we ran many plays specifically for Troy or Melvin.

Facts indicated this made little sense from the beginning. So I'm glad you shared that this was driven by hope versus anything tangible.

There you go again sounding snarky/douchy. Do you talk to people like that in public?

Best case scenario: Vandy does just enough this season to turn out to be a good win on our resume. Stack has a couple more outbursts as bad or worse than the one he had at the Stu. The AD decides to give him the boot. Mass transfers ensue and this time next year we have a new Ram on the team who shoot 50%+ from 3 (Stute) 😃
