    Know what’s really sad? I read an article about Night at the Phog or whatever their event is called and apparently it featured a video where Bill Self was wearing an adidas shirt with a gold chain and dollar sign pendant. He might as well have given the NCAA the middle finger and I’d bet my next paycheck that the NCAA gives them a light slap on the wrist, if that.

    If he legitimately thinks Matt Painter is arguably the best coach in the NCAA I’m a little concerned about the impact he’d have on our APR lol

    Just like you’re ignoring the sources that don’t fit your narrative. The Indystar article is from July. It includes quotes from Lander himself. You can choose to believe the reporter didn’t bother asking Lander about his height if you want to, but I’m not buying it. Anyway, I’ve said all I have to say on this topic. Lander will have top programs promising him PT and IU will be offering him an opportunity to split PT. I’m not getting my hopes up.

    There were 3 guards on that team that played more MPG than Clark and a 4th that averaged a better stat line. I’m not sure you can say Virginia won a championship running a “5’9” guard and a 6’3” guard all season,” when there were 4 guards on the team that were better than the 5’9” player.

    I hope so, and i’d be thrilled to land him. I’m simply going off the information available to me.

    Probably trying to sell him on the idea of splitting time at PG. And I don’t think Lander will go for it.

    24/7 and ESPN have him at 6’1” and Rivals has him at 6’2”. The primary newspaper in his home state had him at “about 6’2,” as of a month ago. It’s really neither here nor there because I don’t believe Phinisee and Lander each play 30 minutes a game unless Lander hits a 4 inch growth spurt.

    If that’s truly the case then I could see them playing together but all of the recruiting sites still have him at 6’1” and an Indystar article from a month ago described him as “stretching to about 6’2.” If he was the 100th ranked player, I could see the information being outdated. Considering he’s the top ranked PG, I have a feeling it’s probably accurate. Perimeter defense is the biggest liability of the pack line and I just don’t see Miller playing two short guards when their assignments are the largest concern.

    Phinisee and Lander are both listed at 6’1’’. Very few teams consistently play two short guards together, and they definitely don’t do it in the pack line. There’s a reason Miller is stocking up on 6’5” guards.

    2 other guys? Lander would get Durham’s minutes right now. Don’t get me wrong, I like watching Durham and appreciate his effort, but he’s not what I would call a particularly good player. The fact that Al would be a senior and would have to compete with a freshman for minutes pretty much says it all. Lander’s only competition for minutes would be Phinisee, and I have a feeling that’ll be the primary reason we don’t land him. Miller clearly wants height and length on the floor and a lineup featuring Phinisee/Lander is a defensive liability in his system. It’ll be one or the other most of the time and I have a hard time seeing Lander take the lead in that battle.

    I remember seeing him on Fee checking out the freshman girls that were sunbathing quite frequently. Always found it a bit creepy tbh

    Ahh ok. Makes a lot more sense now. We could really use that kind of shooter at the moment.

    I didn’t know if you were agreeing with my comment or citing Brian Evans as a counter to what I was saying. My bad man, it’s just a little difficult to decipher the meaning of your post when it’s limited to the name of a player that I’m not old enough to remember.

    You’ll have to clarify; I was 4 years old when he began his college career.

    You can have a low release point as long as your release is quick. Galloway appears to be able to put it up quick enough to offset the low release. That said, the numbers make me think his shot needs some work. Regardless, this is probably my favorite player in the state from 2020 and the one I was really hoping we’d get. I think we got a diamond in the rough. Not an immediate impact player but a guy that’s good for the culture and could develop into a very good player. I really like his ability to finish around the rim and through contact.
