    It’s fine. You keep trashing him. I will keep defending him. He should be playing big minutes because he is our best option at the position without question. Without looking at stats through 4 games I would guess he is averaging close to 10 points per game while shooting around 50% from the field including around 50% from the three point line. Not to mention a big bucket and 2 big free throws in the Xavier game. That’s all we need him to be for this team. I swear some fans aren’t happy because he is labeled a shooter if he doesn’t make every single one of them. It’s crazy the hate he gets on here. He still offers tough perimeter defense and gets a lot of deflections and digs and is almost always in the right position.

    Let’s just sub in Banks for Geronimo and let the frosh run things.

    Not a fan of the lineups out there right now especially Bates and Geronimo together. Where is Galloway?

    I disagree. I’m in the camp that doesn't get the Kopp hate. I have never really understood it. He is by far our best option at the position. He knocked down the baseline jumper after he put it on the floor in the first half. He made a huge three and free throws in crunch time. His defense is very underrated. He continues to get his hands on a lot of balls and is usually in the right place. I noticed in the first half he had a couple of digs and deflections that caused them to get hung up. He also forced a turnover because he was in the right place and they turned it over because he was basically just in the way. His perimeter defense is tough and underrated and he is always talking out there. He will get beat off the dribble by elite athletes so I’m not saying he’s perfect. I just think a lot of the criticism he receives on here is unfair. I want Kopp playing a lot of minutes on this team.

    I think you are spot on. Freemantle had a couple of dunks and stared our guys down but they were just calling it on us. The nature of this is just way too subjective. Just let the kids play.

    He seems like a really good kid that’s a good athlete for sure. He can hit the outside jumper and that’s nice. He has a long way to go in terms of basketball skills and I don’t know if he will ever get there or not. I mean dribbling and catching/holding onto the ball is an adventure. If you compare his basketball skills to Reneau you can see the difference. I don’t know where he fits on this team. He can’t play the three that’s for certain. Race and TJD are going to play a ton and Reneau needs as many minutes as possible. That leaves little minutes for Geronimo. I like how Woodson handled his minutes tonight. He got in the game in the first half played 5 minutes and didn’t play well so he didn’t play again. I suspect he will get another chance Sunday night and if he plays well he might see a few more minutes but if not he won’t play. I do think he will have games where he will contribute but he will also have games like tonight. His biggest opportunity to play will be if those three guys are in significant foul trouble. I think a lot of fans are still waiting for him to ‘arrive’ but chasing his athleticism is fools gold. He is an athlete that lacks some serious basketball skills. I don’t like the comparison to X. X makes some boneheaded plays for sure but he is a very highly skilled basketball player. Geronimo is not. A lot of fans I think see the athlete he is and just assume certain things. I mean their has even been talk on here in the past comparing his trajectory to Oladipo and that’s just not who he is.

    I disagree with some things here so maybe we were watching a different game. It was a great game and I loved the toughness and fight we showed in a tough environment against a quality team. I think maybe Coach Woodson heard me at halftime. Geronimo and Bates played…..well let’s just say they were not good. I liked that he shortened the rotation in the 2nd half. I’m all for having depth but it must be quality depth. Those two got in early but just did not play well. I don’t know the path for Geronimo to get minutes. Race and Reneau are going to play a ton. No way he should cut into Galloways minutes. Again I like depth and if I’m Coach Woodson I don’t know how long I go to Geronimo and Bates before I either shorten the bench like he did in the 2nd half or give those minutes to Banks and Gunn to see what they got. Hopefully they just had bad nights and will play better Sunday.

    Simply yes. Bates was equally as bad.

    A lot of complaining about Race and Kopp but Geronimo and Bates looked unplayable in that half. Either go with Race and Kopp or go further down the bench and see what Banks, Gunn, and Leal can bring.
