    Positives From Exhibition

    I love the way Kane and Hogue rebound. Once Ejim comes back, team will be unstoppable on the boards. Plus I think Percy looked better rebounding.

    Freshmen, once the nerves wore off for Morris and Thomas, they played great.

    Going even faster. I hope we bring the ball down the court that quickly the entire year.

    All in all, IMO, a very good exhibition. Reveals a lot of stuff to work on, but that's definitely okay

    Morris looked like a starter to me.

    Morris & Thomas look even better than I expected. Morris' intangibles are off the charts!

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    Morris looks like the answer at PG. He will definitely struggle at times as all freshman do but I expect Kane will slide to the 3, Thomas stays at the 2 and Morris takes over at point.

    Long is scrappy and is going to be that guy that does things that don't show up on the stat sheet.

    Kane is a manchild, with Ejim and him I'm not sure teams will out rebound us ever.

    FREE THROWS!! Much improved which is huge.

    Morris/Thomas are going to be very special.

    We are extremely deep at every position. I feel comfortable with anyone on the floor.

    Hoiberg can flat out coach, just an exhibition game but we come out with adjustments after half and flat out dominate.

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    I thought Percy gave very solid minutes for us tonight. If he can give 10-15 minutes a game while Melvin is out, I'll be happy.

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    Maybe it's just because we're a small team but Kane looked like a power forward to me. He's not that tall of a guy, but he appears to be terrifyingly strong.

    Not sure about that statement....getting a bit carried away I think.

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    Morris looked better than I expected. He got better the longer he was on the floor. Hogue and Kane are grown-*** men. Niang had a bit of a tough game with misses, and TOs - but I'm not worried. Will be nice to get Hogue and Ejim on the floor at the same time.

    We WILL get out-rebounded this year. We need to keep in mind this is a D2 team.

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    SECOND HALF ADJUSTMENTS! I'm not sure what was said in the locker room but whatever rust we hadn't knocked off on the court seems to have been knocked off in the locker room.

    Kane was in beast mode!

    Morris and Tomas - could be really really good.

    Re: Positives From Exhibition

    I know it's just Augustana and an exhibition game, but if Morris/Thomas play that well all year and into next year... with Niang, Nader, Hogue... and a shot at RV... I am swimming in the coolaid.

    Niang had six assists! I'd attribute the turnovers to rust and nerves.

    I liked how Thomas scored all his points within the framework of the offense....he didn't do anything special to score all those points.
