My impressions, please add comments:
1. Very very athletic team. More so than any KD team I can recall.
2. Reece is a beast.
3. Williams is the real deal. Probably not a prolific scorer, but an all around star player. Great defense, assists, basketball sense. And amazing defense. He needs to be the team leader and make the team his. Lead by doing.
4. Reece is a beast.
5. Tribble will be a star. He has some moves. And a ton of confidence. Could be our best PG since - Dru Joyce? Help me out here. Good size, great moves, plays very smart for a freshman.
6. Reece is a beast.
7. Cheese is the real deal. Plays his A$$ off and is all over the Court. Wish we had him for a few more years.
8. Reece is a beast.
9. Most improved player - Riak! Very pleased with the way he is playing. I did not think he would ever be a factor, I was wrong.
10. Reece is a beast.
11. Banks had a great night. I hope this is the new normal.
12. Reece is a beast.
13. LCJ has great hands. He is a disruptor on defense. I wish he would not chuck up threes quite so much, it is still a team sport. Very happy to see we have his eventual replacement in Tribble.
14. Ali took a shot! Awesome. He has the size, hope to see him playing more aggressive.
I think we can be very very good in the Mac this year. We seem to have all the pieces. This is not only the most athletic team I have seen, it is also pretty tall (although we don't have a 7 footer and we have to see how THAT plays when we come up against one).
Did I mention: REECE IS A BEAST. I don't expect a ton of scoring unless we post him up a lot, but FINALLY we have a rebounder and a big body defender! He sort of reminds me more of Nik than of Tree, but way more athletic. I wonder how the major majors let him get away. He could for sure play anyplace.
