It's in the eye of the beholder.

Was following game online then decided to tune in late.  So glad I did.  Hopefully the W sends the team on a run.  First half and second half, a matter of execution.  Danes are always prepared. 

I guess. Still, 56 of 63 points came from new players. That’s pretty remarkable. The team needs some time at the charity stripe in practice. WB must be having nightmares over missed FTs. 

It was so weird watching the second half and for most of it all new players on the court. It was like watching a different program. I really hope they can come together and grow as a team and win a bunch of games this season.

We looked like we had more of an identity as the game went on. Roles became clearer, etc.

I thought Doles was really a difference maker as well. He hit some nice midrange shots and is a nice combo with Taylor.

Kellon Taylor is just straight-up alpha. There's no other way to say it. I'd like to see hit catch it in the post a little more.

Hoping Jojo Anderson comes around. He's a good player but in trying to be aggressive he's taking some bad shots and launching threes way too early in the shot clock. He's too smart of a player for that.

Chuck Champion looked a little more like the guy I'd hoped for.

I know there have been a lot of naysayers so far this season, but I do think we need to reserve judgement. Team is missing an all-conference guard, a big that was expected to play a lot of minutes, and is still learning each other.

The glaring stat right now is how well they have controlled the ball. Shot selection may be off, there isn't enough movement, but they aren't turning it over. If they can keep that up they will have a chance to beat anyone. 

The biggest issue so far has been another poor start to defending the 3. I'm not sure what it is, but opponents always seem to shoot well against us..

Healy is still having problems with his obliques (back)

Thanks did not know. Also don’t have access to the TU articles so not sure where to get updates. Are they filling games with out of conference teams for next weekend since SB is postponed?

I understand Healy and Luka are injured and may be for a while. But what the heck is the matter with Hutch. Showed a lot  of promise last year {a little inconsistent @ times, but for a freshman, I really thought we had something may be even a star in the making??} Shafer reported as the "BEST" player in practice. Is it nerves, he like Hutch seems totally lost when on the floor. And JoJo played only 8 minutes yesterday. Counting Healy & Luka that is what many predicted could be UA's starting five this year???????  Also, for a team that has only played 4 games, WHY are we SO beat up. Brown must be killing (just kidding) these guys in practice.

Anyhow, looking for thoughts and opinions:  Will any of the 2019-2020 roster come around?? Or is what we saw yesterday all there is???

I agree, Hutch and Shafer are heading for the end of the pine at this rate.  Are the newbies just quicker and faster and more athletic than them?  Obviously.  And as for Healy and Lulka, I wish nothing but the best for them to recover quickly but "injured" has become their middle name over the past year.  Can't help the team and certainly may losing PT if they do return while others may rise to the top of the rotation.
