    Villanova has lived on kids in the 30-60 range. I'm very confident kids ranked around 50 on average easily outperform kids ranked around 125. I think the 30-75 range is the sweet spot because you are getting really good players that likely aren't going pro after 1-2 years.

    Shouldn't you be somewhere evangelizing how overrated Carsen Edwards is?

    Yes it is misleading and it's just a lazy analysis. Plus as mentioned you aren't taking volume into account at all. Lumping a low volume 20% shooter into a group that is shooting 35% overall is just dumb. He is not a guy that is keeping the defense honest so what is the point of including him.

    Steph Curry and Andrew Bogut are shooting over 40% from 3 as a group this year.

    The post I believe you are referencing was from Bailey on Feb 10th. Green was suspended in January so that timeline doesn't make sense.
  6. You're right, it's probably someone blowing off steam. I mean I couldn't stop rooting for IU even if I wanted to. I'd only have enough clothes to last about 3 days!
  7. That is only part of his problem with being a perimeter player. Have you seen him play defense on the perimeter? He gets torched consistently. I went to the northwestern game and that guy Falzon who had averaged 2 points a game went for about 20 with Smith being his primary defender. I think his post defense is actually much better. Also where are you getting he is a pretty good ball handler? He is absolutely a below average ball handler for a perimeter player.
  8. Justin Smith epitomized the lack of effort and tenacity on this team. He was a guy who just went through the motions. I truly hope he is not back next year. Not because he isn’t talented enough to help us but because IMO he is a net negative due to his attitude.
  9. He could have 30 points, 12 assists, 8 steals, 5 blocks, and 1 TO and you would focus on his TO.
  10. I don’t know why I’m indulging this, but let’s make a hypthothetical timeline. 1) Keion announces at 8 2) Media obligations and talking to others he knows there lasts until 9:30 3) Somehow and inexplicably Keion breaks from his entire family immediately afterward and the three of them find a place to drink together by 10 4) They drink from 10 to 12:30 AM 5) TJD then begins the multi-hour drive home drunk 6) TJD gets home at 3:00 AM the night before a semi-state game There are almost zero universes in which this is a remote possibility
  11. It’s easy for me to buy the narrative that they want to support their good friend regardless of his decision. The idea that they are going to hang out, especially considering TJD’s circumstances, is borderline idiotic.

    And the other sad thing is that this is basically a home game. There are about 8 OSU fans here and the place has gone nuts every time we made a run.

    I’m at the game and have pretty good seats. Not sure I could be less impressed with Romeo. Stupid plays and jogging up and down the court.
