    We might be more defensive this year

    But tonight proved we can still win with offense

    40 points in 1 half for Markus helps that

    Against some teams Howard looks unstoppable. Against other teams, he looks physically overmatched. He's gotta play with more consistency.

    Joey Hauser is going to be a player. That guy can ball.

    I don’t really think it’s much of the physicality. He’s exploded against Buffalo and Kstate two great defensive teams with guard length.

    His issue is teams can “speed him up” and get him rushing his drives, usually when he hasn’t started hot. That even happened today. He was brutal for the most part for the first 25 min. But the guy can get it going quick. Sometimes I wish he would see the open man more and be more efficient but he’s really our only true guard option so he’s gotta sacrifice efficiency at times.

    Regarding Joey. Yeah he’s good. Sam is more fundamentally sound, but it’s clear why Joey was considered the “better brother”. Both are great.

    Southern might be the worst team in D1

    Butler looked pretty slow against Florida today. Can't remember the last time they scored under 20 in a half.

    Big East should be pretty fun this year.

    I think Villanova or Marquette will win the regular season, but Providence has an outside shot. Solid team, solid coaching.

    Seton Hall has a team, but not enough talent. St Johns has talent, but too many deficiencies.

    Those are your 5 tourney teams.

    I think it will be Nova. Maybe Marquette. St John’s and Butler have chances but a lot must go right.

    I don’t see it with Prov. They can be tough any night. But just so hit or miss and especially til Reeves is back need some help at Guard.

    SJU is dangerous(got hosed last night) but their lack of size and depth will most likely be way too much to overcome over 18 games to win the league.

    I think Providence can be good. They've got a lot of young talent. If they can put it together a little.

    Butler looks like shit this year. Granted, they always overachieve, but I think they miss the tourney.

    Honestly Butler has a lot there. The issue is Kamar Baldwin. He’s probably the most overrated player in the country.

    His production per his usage rate is embarrassing

    But if he gets it turned around they have potential to be tough.

    Man we fucking suck on the road

    At the same time, we have no fucking luck.

    Creighton is legit making 45 footers

    Let’s hold home court on Saturday

    Holy hell. How'd they get that to OT.

    Creighton had the ball with 0.6 seconds left and I changed the channel.

    This is the worst I’ve ever seen a Marquette team play.

    Can’t make anything

    Handing SHU all their points on TOs

    We shoulda been up 18 and then absolutely melted down

    Jesus somehow someway we pulled that out. Clutch free throws.

    Hall is not very good. But they have a knack for making teams play terrible. Us, UK and Maryland

    After taking a few hours to “take the win and run” I gotta add one thing I love about this team and it’s future

    Theo John. My god is this guy simply a man.

    Being from Minny I told some people not to sleep on him. Last year he showed some things. This year he has become a defensive beast. His offense is still very basic and sporadic but what a physical force. Been so long since we had a guy like this, hell even our great teams under TC and Buzz didn’t have a Theo.

    Only a soph.
