  1. That's what the White Bronco is for! Wait... wrong get-away...
  2. My goodness that's beautiful. Go Zips!
  3. Shhhhh... dead horse beating in progress. Don't interrupt. 😬😁
  4. Agreed, especially with taking over for LCJ at starting Point. It was pretty evident in the highlight videos and practice videos I saw from the off-season that this kid's a player. He's very fluid. I think LCJ is the perfect 6th man candidate. High-energy gnat (in a good way) that annoys the crap out of opposing players. I like LCJ - a lot. I think he's very cerebral when he SLOWS DOWN and let's the game come to him. Too often I think he goes into "hero" mode, which is the exact opposite of what his strengths are - distribution on offense and quick hands on defense.
  5. So it's the YSU Quisenberry's vs. the Akron Zips. Got it. Keep the effort up, and good things will happen. Out-efforting a team will make up for not shooting lights out. We have the talent to compete at the top of the MAC; establish the fundamentals early this OOC season, and we'll be in good shape. Go Zips!
  6. The jump shots are a head scratching to say the least, as in today's game, it's not like everyone on the floor didn't come up through AAU which promotes nothing but shooting. Interested to see in year 3 how Groce corrects that continuous problem. The free throw shooting shouldn't be a surprise. Since the day Groce took over, he has emphasized the fundamentals, and we've seen consistent FT shooting for the most part these past couple seasons.
  7. A win is a win. NCC didn't give up as I expected with their tourney experience. Our shooting HAS to improve, but I like our defense and pace of play. We also need to finish around the rim better.
  8. To say the least. The effort and pace are still there, though, which is nice to see. We aren't becoming stagnant.
  9. Taylor Currie is a very fluid, versatile 4 that stretches the floor. Here are his HS rankings when he committed to Wisconsin. He also had offers from Michigan and Xavier. Some of his highlights from 2017. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Garvin is going to be a true freshman, and has been turning heads for the past year or 2. Multiple Cleveland-area articles on his rise. Here are his recruiting rankings according to 247Sports. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When Groce was at O-Who, he ran a guard-based, athletic front court system. His "bigs" were more stretch 4s, and his guards were all combo guards. Kellogg & Cooper ran the back court, Keely & Baltic ran the front court; that system got them 3 tourney wins. That is what this team is starting to look like. Athleticism at each position, and matchup nightmares. These 2 guys fit the mold perfectly I think.
  10. You would be surprised. There's a reason the NBA is cozying up closer and closer to China - these international leagues are paying very well from top to bottom pretty much. Basketball is way bigger internationally than it used to be.
  11. Guys transferring out that were fringe players these last 2 years to begin with, should point to the program moving in a positive direction. Directional Carolinas get me almost as excited as Directional Michigans, but NC Central is actually a decent OOC opponent with all of their recent tourney experience.
  12. The Roo on the thumbs is awesome. The field is coming along very nicely as well. Wow.
  13. This is one heck of an effort by the Zips.
  14. Back to double digits after a couple quick buckets by WVU. Damn.
  15. Every time I hear the WVU announcer say Sherman, I can't help but think...
  16. Great, aggressive start to the 2nd half.
  17. 33-47 at the half. Not bad. Make a few more shots, cut down on the turnovers, and this is a game.
  18. 3 fouls on their McDonald's All American.
  19. 1350 on the radio is airing the Akron game. 1350 on iHeart is airing the Hoban game. Listening to the WVU radio on their website. Reece had a block then scored. The WVU announcer, "Blocked from behind, RUDELY, by Reece."
  20. I'm getting premium content. Tried to sign up, it was charging me $0, but then wouldn't process the payment.
  21. Outstanding comments from Alford. Very respectable.
  22. This is about as accurate an assessment as you can make. Well said. When you look at the past couple of seasons, we've been a couple made shots away from flipping the records. The biggest thing I appreciate from Groce's teams thus far is their commitment to the defensive side of the ball. I think we took for granted last year what it meant to have a top 25 defense IN THE COUNTRY. It's an aspect of basketball that is quietly disappearing as AAU continues to promote offensive stat sheets over basketball fundamentals. Hopefully the shots fall this season as we continue to commit to high-intensity defense. We'll see tonight pretty quickly if this team has bought in from the get-go, or if we'll need 2 months of OOC basketball to develop the commitment to the fundamentals we've seen in recent seasons. If WVU doesn't get you amped up, sheesh. Wow. Thanks for that insight. I wonder if other coaches trust previous players to stay through a coaching change when they take over the program. I'd have to imagine Parrish was one of the key pieces.
