Not sure if D is just ahead of O or just bad O but it’s not pretty.....

Gabriel looks good.... active

Poor shooting by everyone....

Mast is legit 6’ 9”

Antonio Thomas looks stronger then i expected.

Glad it’s early.....
So I was in the airport the other day and I saw AL B., PM me if you want more details.

Coach stated it was their 5th practice of the day. Say what?

Don’t expect the core players from the Sweet 16 to ever play again in The Basketball Tournament. Father Time strikes again.

He’s undefeated!

He meant to say this is only their fifth practice total, not for today!

The regulars looked ok... it’s not like we don’t know what we have with them. Really wish Boya was getting some reps.....

Gabriel DID have a crossover move n dunk that put a
smile on everyone’s face.... now does he play guard or out top or PF down low where they want him to ......he also crashes the board hard.... in fact i liked how everyone crashed the board and got after it.

Think Henry is going to take a big leap..... he also looked solid. He’ll continue to be a mismatch and give some bigger slower guys fits.

As i said the poor shooting was the only disappointment but when it’s your 5th practice of the day....... :shock:

Really hard to say much about a scrimmage that was run more like a practice.
Gabriel and Thomas both built already like college players.
Nolan is going to be a very special player in 2020-21.
Kingsby did not stand out at all.
Ville is a great stand still shooter.
Wish Mast and Boya could play as they are both huge players. Mast shot the ball from 3 after and he can shoot it very well.
If coach still wants Nate to be his 6th man I see Henry or Gabriel being the 5th starter.
We will know a lot more after the first exb. game.

As was mentioned earlier, the defense is way ahead of the offense.

After Brown & Bar, it looks like a bunch of interchangeable parts on defense that can switch on man to man.

The perimeter shooting is a concern, but I think most teams will struggle with three point shooting due to the longer distance.

There weren't any lost sheep. All the new guys looked like they belonged at this level.

Highlight of the day right here (not you coach, sorry :-)).

That won’t slow down the Stephan Gabriel hype train.

How would people that have seen all (3) players rank the transfer guards: Kingsby, Nolan, McAdoo?
