Re: Off Topic Kobe Bryant

As a fan and more so a father this gutted me. Any time a child loses a parent it is tragic. When a parent loses a child, even more tragic. When both happen, you just don’t have the words. Still doesn’t seem real. Yeah, man, it’s just so brutal that a daughter that was so obviously eager and natural...

Re: Gabriel released

College kids often behave stupidly in college, and a lot of times we are lucky that not that many people care about our stupidity in our youth. Bradley will be fine without him. I sincerely hope that he will be fine without Bradley. It would be even better if he learned something valuable from his t...

DK seems to know how to find AB better than the other guards. Great court chemistry between those two.
Very true. He has that ability to get into the lane and be dangerous, and he has an eye to dishing it to the bigs when he gets in there.

Boya is murdering them. I doubt anyone will say he isn’t progressing at this point. And this defense...my goodness. Can they do it for 20 more minutes?

Re: ISU Blue

DB will dress, play if needed. Anyone who watched the Wednesday game saw that Braves were gassed at end of game. Blue ISU guards will drive the paint to get fouls. All Lansing teams have done that. So playing 7 will be a risk this time. No way does our bigs get by with 5 combined fouls and foul pro...

Re: New guys

If this comes to fruition, Wardle will be leaving. Leaving? I'd say he'll have options. Wardle seems to be the type of guy that will only take the right job and not just any BCS job. He also has young kids and I'm betting his wife likes stability. I hope he has positive options! Agree, he'd absolut...

Re: Child’s, Linke, Hannah, Boya, Mast

I've only seen Henry on TV, except for last year's MVCTC game, but although he's effective and does a good job filling the box score, it looks to me like he's a couple inches shorter than ideal? Bad camera angles or is that right? Well...I guess it depends on your definition of 'ideal'... Henry is ...

Koch was just getting banged further toward the basket for 2 foot shots Ari showed more strength and was able to hold his ground better. He wasn't spectacular. ...

Re: UNI Part 2

Even though UNI dominated us inside, I really liked Ari's game. It wasn't his best, but it is the type of consistent night he's starting to get more regularly. He is showing nice progression. He is proving, at minimum, he will be reliable off the bench, and there could well be more to be mined ther...

Thought he deserved his own thread. . .I had more tempered expectations than most for him this year, but once he re-discovered his 3 point stroke, here are his stats since mid-December (Dec. 10 to be exact - so 9 games): 8.44 ppg with a .551 3-pt % (16/29) Those numbers include a goose egg vs. Tole...

Re: Mo.St.

That’s an interesting point. I’d add that it is remarkable to be able to run a team tired, when you have so many scholarship players unable to play. I agree. The Bradley training staff, like most areas of athletics, has come a long way under Dr. Reynolds. There’s been a lot of investment in infrast...

I almost think Wardle pushed Ford into this type of game. Last year, Wardle made many derogatory statements about MSU’s sloooow pace. On the post-game, Wardle mentioned that this was the fastest pace MSU played all year, and possibly resulted in MSU being too gassed at the end. That’s an interestin...

Haven’t got to watch each game lately, but a remarkable run of basketball by the team, and more so considering there are 8 scholarship players right now. I don’t know what the ceiling of the team ends up being, but this is one tough *** team. Kudos to Wardle. Missouri State, on the other hand, is no...

We have 2 pretty good transfer guards sitting out now, we could use a 6-7 wing that can shoot and rebound plus a freshman combo guard.
What if they are 6-6 or 6-8, and can shoot and rebound? Would that still be acceptable to you?
