  1. Yeah, that was an overlong way of saying his shot works. Though the drift is a thing. I have a kind of pathological need to break things down. Makes my wife nuts.
  2. It’s ok as long as it’s repeatable. A little like Trey Galloway’s stroke, but Galloway elevates more. Wrist and elbow are aligned. Ball’s off his palm. Ok wrist snap. He does have some leftward drift. Similar to Robert Johnson, but not as pronounced because Johnson elevated so much. Drift creates inconsistency, it sure did for RoJo. I think the drift is what the coaches will focus on, wherever he ends up.

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal

    Thanks for the feedback. I want to find more game footage of Leal. Funny that you make that comparison. I really like Windham and I was watching Leal to try to project him as a true frosh against Windham as a redshirt frosh.
  6. I think he walks in and gets 12-15 mins as backup pg immediately. Neither Green nor Durham are remotely effective in that role. Also like him next to Rob as a secondary creator. Think he’s one of those kids who will just force Archie to find him time. And I agree with you on Carton.

    (2020) SG Anthony Leal

    I need some feedback from the folks who have seen a lot of this kid. Just got done watching the Regional game against Center Grove. 1st full game of Leal’s that I’ve watched. Knew going in that he had a tough game and had rolled an ankle in the 2nd half. Was prepared for that. But, sorry, he was lousy before the ankle. Just incredibly passive. Didn’t run or cut hard. Didn’t defend hard. Wasn’t physical. Got flat outhustled on 2 loose balls. Just didn’t really compete, and in the biggest game of their year. I had no idea that’s what I was going to see. It’s one thing to have a bad night, everyone has them. It’s another thing to just not play hard and not contribute. The effort was the issue. So was he sick or hurt, or is he one of those kids who doesn’t always show up? Have seem multiple games of Galloway’s. Hasn’t always played well, but has always, always, played hard and found ways to contribute.

    If the kid is ready to start the next phase of his life, good for him. But if he’s leaving because he thinks he’s an NBA player next year, he’s getting very bad advice.
  9. Man, if you created an NBA 3 from scratch, that’s what he’d look like. Most talented kid on this roster. With a full year of skill/physical development, assuming he’s good to go, I would expect Hunter to be Conference Freshman of the Year.

    Ayo Dosunmu officially coming back to Illinois. Good decision. Making the Thomas Bryant move and not even bothering to go through the process. Illinois will be one of the few improved teams in the conference next year.
  11. A single like doesn’t really do it. Great post. Bravo.
  12. Maryland just took a commitment from ‘19 6’6” SG Hakim Hart, per Corey Evans.
  13. Anthony would be the 2nd guard in this class for UNC. They signed Jeremiah Francis in the fall. And they have 3 returning guards, Woods and Robinson, who played, and Platek, who didn’t. So I think Harris is probably a contingency plan for Anthony, otherwise he’d be the 6th scholarship guard. Doesn’t mean Roy can’t pull it off.
  14. Not sure he’s quite as physically talented as Quinones, and not as good a shooter, but, man, would I love to have this kid. The kid radiates toughness in a way that we have not seen around here in a while. Kind of reminds me of Xavier Simpson in that whenever you watch UM his competitiveness just pops and he’s clearly the heartbeat of that team. This needs to happen.
  15. Wow. Good, good player. Game changer for somebody
