    How do Cook and Amardi look?

    I am not at home and catch watch the game. Could someone report how these two former Cyclones look for Oregon? Thanks!

    Long and athletic. Better athletes than they are Basketball players.

    Re: How do Cook and Amardi look?

    Amardi doesn't touch the ball much on offense, but he is basically playing starters minutes for a top 25 team. He is 6'9 and very athletic. I think he would be starting for us while Ejim is out, maybe even ahead of Hogue just due to his size. He would for sure be ahead of Gibson and Edozie. I really hope we don't regret not keeping him.

    Cook looks ok. I'm not sure whose spot he would have taken. Looks to be similar size and athletic ability as Hogue but probably not as strong down low and not as good a rebounder.

    We won't regret missing him because we have Deandre instead.

    I'm saying I would rather have him than Edozie. I don't see Edozie playing much the next two years.

    Re: How do Cook and Amardi look?

    Tough game to judge Amardi on. Not many games where you have to guard a 350 center. Would have loved to have Amardi and Cook. Especially because Cook has 3 years to play.

    Amardi wouldn't play on this team much either. Edozie at least seems to completely grasp and accept his current role and is doing all he can in practice to upgrade. He has two years to do it.

    Armadi just hit a nice jumper, the announcers said he scored 20 in an exhibition

    No, someone else scored 20. He just says Amardi has to race back because he can eat gtowns big guy down the floor. Amardi would not be starting at ISU. Oregon has two suspended players which is why he is playing so much.

    Re: How do Cook and Amardi look?

    Cook is still a pup, so I'm not looking at him much. Amardi is playing a lot, but are they "real minutes"? After watching a bit of this game, and how he's being used, I don't know. He has been open a few times and nobody for Oregon looks his way. Nobody.

    I think he's very athletic, but if given the choice on a 1 year scholly between him and Kane? No question at all. In response to those that may say 'rather him than DE'? First...I'd like to ball you out for a lot of reasons. Second...my 1st post.

    Re: How do Cook and Amardi look?

    Amardi is making his presence known in the 2nd half. He's almost Cato-like as far as athletic with a better shot. Can't cry over spilled milk, but imo he would definitely be playing for us, especially over Gibson, Edozie , and maybe Hogue depending on whether they'd go big or small. I realize we wouldn't probably have Kane, though, and without Bubu it's obvious we needed another experienced guard. I think if Amardi had been a '2 year' guy, he would be a Clone but he was odd man out.

    Amardi is going to be on sports center top 10 tonight with his last dunk He's going to be very good for Oregon, who plays similar to us.
