    Re: Monday Musings: Bevins' departure, CCL opinions too

    Great, now even Williams is hating on Percy




    Love, love, love Monte Morris and Matt Thomas - those guys are going to be so fun to see this year - I still think Monte has a REAL shot of being the starting PG come conference play. I've said it all along, and I'll keep tooting the horn to whoever will listen. The kid just flat out plays hard and wants to win. Doesn't hurt that he's one of the more talented players on the squad. Could be another awesome freshman like Georges was last year.

    No hate. No hate. Just pointing out the obvious fact that he really needs to get better between his sophomore and junior seasons.

    "One thing that has been obvious to me is the fact that Thomas seems to be very uncomfortable playing in the CCL. By nature, he isnít a chucker." So true...

    I think you could see a line up of:
    PG - Morris
    SG - Thomas
    SF - Kane
    PF - Mel
    C - Georges

    Kane is 6'4" and more of a slasher. Gives you two ball handlers on the court plus Thomas who isn't bad either. I'm sure SDW, Naz, etc will have something to say about that however.

    Don't forget about Hogue...

    Meaning, he could very well be a starter too. Not in reference to the ball handling comment.

    Decent analysis of Bevins' departure and how it will impact the team, but the elephant in the room is "why did he leave?" A statement of some sort to answer the question will suppress any speculation.

    Sorry. I thought you were inviting criticism earlier. I didn't want to miss out.

    Agree 100% ;-) You did SEE the pirate, correct?

    Best part about this year is that there will be competition at pretty much every spot other than Georges/Ejim. Competition is a good thing - it pushes these guys to be better. I'd rather have a team full of hungry players than guys who just sit back and want it handed to them.

    IMO, Percy could fall into a bad situation if he doesn't show some fire - losing Amardi essentially took his 'competitor' away in some regards.

    Re: Monday Musings: Bevins' departure, CCL opinions too

    Anyone else think with the lose of Amardi and the addition of Kane we might see a decent amount of Hogue playing the 4, especially if Percy and Edozie aren't as serviceable as they need to be?
