Despite his height (or because of his width) Hank didnt seem to play above the rim much, instead having those Rowley-like moves on the floor. Have to see how his quickness compares to the rest of the league, I thought Foster was at least even with him rebounding.
 

True but he did have that nice rejection of Foster late in the game of what looked like a sure-fire dunk. For a freshman, he was solid.

Getting back to guards, Clark was on the bench taking NOTES on a scrap sheet of paper. OK, maybe he was playing tic-tac-toe or something; but if he was really taking notes, how cool is that!

 

 

 

 

It wouldn't surprise me if he was taking notes. One of the fun things about these events is talking to the players and the amount of attention they pay to detail. They were talking about watching videos of post-up plays (on their own) and when to employ them depending of what the defender is doing against you. I'm guessing there was some Cremo influence there.

 

-Not sure how Travis Charles doesn't start. That was a clinic last night. We can really build around a post presence.

-Maybe I've forgotten how good Nichols was but he was just unguardable.

-Hank doesn't look like a freshman. Just from what we saw, that's a nice combo of frontcourt players in Hank, Stire, Charles and Foster.

-Cochran looked good. I'm guessing he'll start a little slow coming off the redshirt year.

-If Clark is as good as he sounds it will be tough for the guards to find minutes.

 

First 10 games or so will be interesting. There are a lot of different potential combos as a lot of the new guys can really play.

Anyway, bye week coming up then need to win 5 in a row to make the playoffs.

 

I admire your optimism Sir! Especially after two heartbreaking weeks in a row.

 

One small thing to cheer me up today - Stony Brook lost to Delaware. Hey, I'll take what I can get!

I have high expectations for Clark. DJ Evans and Evan Singletary have made me a sucker for JUCO point guards.

A couple of those clips were of Foster who looks, well, like a power conference guy.
