I love these moments- if you can’t root for our guys - your rooter isn’t working right.
At least they couldn’t play both of their bigs at the same time because we were too quick if both were on the court. Unfortunately most all of our ready talent is about the same size (or smaller!)I agree they are hurting us on defense compared to what we need from the position. However, compared to what we saw last night I don't agree. We were worse defensively last night than usual.
Post and Karninick average right at 17 a game together in 40 minutes shooting under 50% from the field. Against us they combined for 32 points in right at 40 minutes shooting 13 - 18 combined (72%). And it wasn't like they were doing anything much special to do it. They just had such a size advantage and we never tried to throw them off even when it was their only reliable plan on offense. And in general, BC scored nearly 10 points more than their average and their second most of any game all year. Some times that happens because a team just shoots lights out and you tip your hat and move on. That isn't what happened though. They were mostly scoring in predictable ways against a glaring weakness that we just decided to have for little reason. If we go tiny that is an effect that we can expect every game
Offensively sure, they are hurting and having another wing probably helps. But if we want to get more shooting threats on the court then we should either sit Moore, or play Mike at the point and sit Smith and Sturdivant. That makes even more sense considering we aren't really using a PG to run the show much at all.
I’ve not been a fan of the changes NIL is bringing to college sports, but since it’s happening, I think these road win gas station trips could be ripe for some creative and attention getting NIL deals. Somebody needs to get on that.
Das deep, techst.Bucees. That would be my vote. Go in trying to buy one thing, $50 later, leave with a brisket sandwich, 2 packs of large beef jerky, a Bucees snack mix, candy, and drinks. I love Bucees...and hate it at the same time.
Should be a marketing type person or position in the athletic department to hunt these NIL type of deals, or is that even allowed?I’ve not been a fan of the changes NIL is bringing to college sports, but since it’s happening, I think these road win gas station trips could be ripe for some creative and attention getting NIL deals.

Cut hand- he really has been snakebit by injuries the last couple of years.According to the AJC, Maxwell told Pastner at 5:30 he would not be able to play - cut on his right hand. He tried during warmups and said he could go. Played with the hand taped.
It is much easier to win when you can shoot the ball - team shot 50% for the game. Maybe it will continue.
