    Ejim

    Just got back from the game and wanted to say good job today Ejim. I think he's going to be a very good player for us. He seems to be more powerful and accurate. 80% shooter today and made all of his free throws. Good job Ejim.

    You can tell he worked on his game a lot this off season.

    It sounds like we are going to need his rebounding this year. How close was the game, and what are the major issues that need addressing?

    Honestly he looked like the best player on the court today, the game was closer than I thought it was going to be. I think Ejim had something like 24 points at half.

    Rebounding is going to be an issue.

    Also I think Royce is going to be one of those pouty players when calls don't go his way.

    Hope we can be saying the same thing come conf. play. He started out strong as a freshman but disappeared when it came time for conf play.

    Just got back from the game as well and these comments are all on point. Ejim is doing a very good job moving without the ball and this team has some nice passers, so he is getting great looks at the hoop.

    Royce was indicating he wanted an intentional foul at one point. His free throw shooting was bad today, so he better get used to it.

    I think we had a 10-20 point lead pretty much throughout the game. Just couldn't fully put them away.

    To me, the effort seemed to be lacking. Especially in the case of challenging outside shots and finishing at the hoop.

    Shooting was pretty good, and we played good defense at times, but it was inconsistent.

    We obviously can't play like this and win many conference games, but I'm not too worried yet.

    Not having a point guard seems to be the biggest.

    I'd say rebounding is the biggest.

    Of course it was; they're not going to go all out for an exhibition game. They'd be stupid to do anything but sandbag it; games that don't count aren't worth overdoing or getting injured in.

    Exactly. We could of easily blown them out, but CFH seemed to be experimenting with lineups and getting lots of different combinations of players on the floor. I don't think our starting 5 were on the court together for more than 5 minutes all game.

    Re: Ejim

    Having 12 turnovers is another thing. Seemed to me like they were really relaxed, but it's the first game. I'm sure we'll do fine and shooting was a strong point.

    Re: Ejim

    It was one game. An exhibition. Hoiberg was constantly subbing in and out to experiment with lineups. Some of you people need to quit jumping to such ridiculous conclusions after one exhibition game.
