    The Booker

    I just want to give this guy some props, he is playing solid right now. We need his kind of minutes for us to make a push for a top 4 finish in the Big XII. Even though it takes him a ton of time to get his shot off, it is one of the prettiest shots for a big man I have seen. Anyone have any stats on his 3 point % in league play? I dare say its the best on the team.

    Plus he was contending on every shot that Mizzou took in the paint and had at least 3 blocks by my count even though a couple didn't count as the player was fouled by someone. But its great seeing that effort from him, we need his length in the paint on defense, and his shot can help stretch D even further. We gotta get this guy some more playing time.

    Re: The Booker

    He has become very active defensively and is shooting the ball really well right now. He is a valuable piece of this team.

    Re: The Booker

    Booker has impressed me. He is money behind the arc and works harder on D than any of our big men.

    He is 10 for 16 from deep. 63%

    Re: The Booker

    Great post. Really happy with (and for) Booker. I'll be rooting like hell for him to keep it up.

    And I actually think his release isn't slow at all. He got the step back 3 off in a hurry against KU, and has been fairly quick on the catch and shoot shot.

    Re: The Booker

    Book is very athletic but lacks some pretty basic defensive fundamentals. Fortunately he's athletic enough to recover when he gets beat most of the time. If he can improve his defense he'll really be a huge asset to this team for the remainder of the season and next season.

    Love his stroke too, he really shoots it with confidence.

    Re: The Booker

    Booker is far more effective from the outside than from the block.

    Re: The Booker

    This kid has a lot of potential, he'll be a very good player over the next 2 years. He's got some things to improve on, but he's been a pleasant surprise so far. I think as long as he keeps getting open looks, he'll keep knocking down shots but I expect teams to not just let him keep shooting.

    Re: The Booker

    Just found the stats I was looking for. Booker is not only leading the team in 3 point percentage but is leading the league. He's 8-10.
