    Anyone pay attention to the bball game? Looks like the younger players can shoot. The older ones, well, they need to keep practicing.

    I didn't watch it but seen a highlight of Andrew Jones making his first basket. Awesome!

    I watched the Kent St./Buffalo game last night. Even a MAC football game is better than regular season basketball. (((yawn)))

    Normally I'd agree, but Andrew Jones kinda makes this a special story.

    He is a good story and I'm very happy for him. However, regular season NCAA and NBA basketball is very hard to watch.

    Granted it was against EIU, but the young guys look hungry and like team players. It wasn't about feeding it to one person. I was slightly impressed. Lots of full court pressure. Looked more like the VCU teams he used to coach. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    True. Still better than kickball though.

    Start of game looked like last years team.....then they started to figure it out. He kept changing combination of players and then you could see the groups that worked well together. Depth is way better and we have some talent for sure. Just no dominant big man in the middle. The kid from Alaska is raw, but could end up being very good.

    watching mo bamba doing so great in the association makes me scared about our ability to utilize a strong post. maybe it will be the opposite effect and we'll play solid small ball

    Does Osetkowski still appear to be eating like a f*cking truck driver, or did he finally undergo some actual proper S&C this offseason?

    I did see that he looks MUCH slimmer and, more importantly, he does not have cornrows anymore

    He looked way better! They said he had worked hard with one of the assistants on "playing with two feet on the floor" meaning he was using head fakes and not getting caught in the air. You could tell he has worked hard. Think they said he dropped either 30 or 40 lbs.

    I watched it. It was typical play for the 1st game. A lot of new faces and very little chemistry. I liked what I saw. I absolutely love Coleman-I think he will be the heart of the team at this point. Even more than Roach or Jones. Ever since he missed those free throws that cost Texas a game, he has been spot in including his 3 point accuracy. We have not had a point guard that is a 3 point threat in years. Isaiah Taylor could drive but, was never a shooting threat and opposing defenses had the luxury of not having to cover him. Osetkowski gets a lot of heat, but, i like his game and attitude. Texas will be playing Arkansas here in El Paso on friday, but, it is closed to the public because it is the Armed Forces game on Fort Bliss. Sucks.
