Ugly so far and I still hate the transfer portal.

I agree. Transfer portal to college is akin to free agency in the NBA. One of the things I liked about college was that you pretty much saw the same roster for 3-4 years at a time with only 1-3 additions. Now every year half the team is new.

Caoches cant put the ball in the basket. That being said our sets are terrible.  Our defense is terrible.  Those things can be coached . Very poor.  This is a mid major team . Not Kansas.

Troubling trends emerging with DK's recruiting...brutal shooting teams. They are athletic but absolutely can't shoot....

Was going to ask the experts who are are 3 point threats?  Trey clearly has the green light again but he’s not it (I hope).

Early thoughts:

1. Beagle will be very, very good 

2. Drumgoole could be a solid glue guy/gets you what you need when you need it guy.

3. Reddish is about a year away from, I personally think, breaking out.  He does some things well, and some not so well (including the charge just now).  The talent is there but going back to 1882...he needs to be coached up.  He gets coached up and listens to it, he can be really solid.

4. Every single guard is a mess but for Patel.  Edmead seriously looks like a walk-on.  Amica has made about 4 bonehead plays.  Evans continuing the St. Rose "drive into a mass of bodies" and / or go run ahead of my whole team causing a reverse "numbers" issue.

5. Except for Reddish and Evans, not a single guy can put the ball on the floor and drive on Towson.  

6. Neely changes this team...we are likely looking at a 5-7 differential right now.

Won't judge after one half...but some of these things are holdovers from last year and they need to be fixed.  This is Killings year to grow as a coach.  And he MUST go out and get another big in the portal.  We have a frosh coming in...but we need some height for next year.

Supposed to be Davis and Patel...per my understanding.

Towson has 6 layups and a wide open 3. The sets they run are awesome.  Our sets look like pick up ball. 

Sets? They’re running SETS? I was thinking the same thing…playground BB.

I was thinking the same on 2 & 6 above. Neely changes a lot.  And 1, like Beagle after the early travel.

It's called a playground set.  "Here's this orange ball, you dribble it, then you try to put it in that hole over there.  Between those two things, act as chaotic as you can but make sure to run forward when you have the ball, backwards when you don't.  When I call out "FFS" you run that "set", got it?!"

I’m really liking Beagle. Athletic, looks strong, making some good decisions to avoid fouling, has a variety of shots and gotta love those purple sneaks…I mean COME ON!
