    Demo got a reaction from HoosierAloha in (2016) PG Curtis Jones to IU   
    Cujo finished with 21. Took a couple of poor shots, particularly 1 in OT that was just a poor decision. Overall played well. Handle is tighter than I've seen it before. Was very good defensively on the ball. Did not get beat off the dribble a single time. Lost spatial awareness twice off ball that got him beat backdoor. Fearless and explosive going to the rim, but does not pas off penetration. Can really shoot off the catch. Needs to play off the ball. Like him a lot as a really talented 4 year kid.
    Btw: Josh Jackson is incredible. Everything Andrew Wiggins was supposed to be coming out of HS this kid actually is.

    Demo got a reaction from hoosierpap in (2016) C Thon Maker   
    Finished 24/13 by my count. Not as impressive as it sounds. Curie didn't play a guy over 6'5". Thon spent most of the 1st half picking and floating to the wing. Had more turnovers, 3, than buckets, 1. Much better in the 2nd half. His feet are so quick in the post and he is so long that if he played like a more or less conventional 4 he would be pretty much unguardable at the college level.
    Would love to have him, but that pounding the ball thing has GOT to be coached out of him. Mitigates all of his advantages.

    Definitely a bad break for you. This will be the 4th year I've gone. Watching that much premium talent in a 1 game at a time setting is just the best.
    Really interested to compare Maker to last year. Talent's almost beyond belief, but l thought he played 3 pretty mediocre halves and 1 pretty good one. Competed really hard, like TB hard, but made so many poor decisions that they often mitigated his physical advantage. Looking forward to seeing how he's developed. CuJo as well. Played really well down there last year.

    Jesus, I cannot believe that some of you are upset that we have one of the best SGs in the country on our team. Most teams would KILL to have a player as good as JBJ on their team. This IU privilege some fans seem to have is ridiculous, we haven't been an elite program for a long time, we are LUCKY to have players like Blackmon here.

    Demo reacted to Magnanimous in Indiana defeats Ottawa 82-54 - Post-Game Thread   
    This is a top 5-10 team that is rightly ranked 15th due to the defensive question marks leftover from last year. My expectations are they should contend for the championship. Senior PG, one of the best shooting teams in the country, and four potential NBA players in the starting lineup. Not too much hype going into the season, which is a good thing, but the team needs to believe in itself that this could (should) be a special season.

    I think your Howland point is a good one, and all the grist seems to be about MSU. But here's the math to me on this one.
    This is a kid who:
    1) left the state for his Junior year to attend a high profile, highly competitive Prep school in Florida.
    2) spent the summer playing in every single showcase event he was invited to.
    3) then transfers to the absolute highest profile, most competitive Prep school in the country, which is in Virginia, for his Senior year.
    To me, that doesn't sound like the plan if you want to spend your college career in Starkville, MS. That's the plan if your goal is to play at the highest profile and most competitive program that you can. I think this kid wants exposure and he gets that here, or Maryland, not some 2nd tier SEC football first school.
    But since I didn't want Jamal Murray, what do I know.
    Really looking forward to seeing Kegler at Marshall County again this year. Great chance to gauge development.

    Maybe, maybe not. This will certainly be a monster class for MSU, but things can change quickly in college basketball. For example, say we land Kegler, Davis and Brown. I'll take those guys as sophomores and juniors, instead of two 1 and dones. MSU's class is amazing, but it could be looked at as a "what could have been" if a bunch aren't around long.
