    Not sure of this is what to expect from Naz but night and day different between now and last year.

    Re: Naz Long and player development

    Getting big production out of a guy like Naz would mean this team is going to be very good, IMO. We know Kane, Ejim and Niang are players. That much is certain.

    If we have another 5/6th man who can give us production like Tyrus did last year (obviously maybe Naz isn't as profient on offense, but his game as a whole), then we'll have some very good depth to go with a pretty good starting 5. Morris will obviously give us some good production too.

    I thought he looked great out there and said the same thing after last game. He will be an excellent 4 year player for us.

    Re: Naz Long and player development

    If Naz can continue to knock down shots that just makes this team that more dangerous. You still have SDW who can Hest up in a hurry too. (Yet to do it but he only attempted two shots). Once Ejim comes back you could have a bench of Long, Morris, SDW, and Gibson/Edozie. That's a pretty dangerous bench.

    And he's only a sophomore too. Got a couple more summers to develop still.

    I am so happy to have Hogue because I still don't have much confidence in Percy or Edozie getting more than a handful of minutes a game. With our guards being fairly solid, Hogue can play a lot of minutes at the 4-5 for Ejim and Niang rather than the 3.

    Agreed, I'm not sure how much those two will play once Ejim gets back. Somebody will lose a lot of playing time and I hope it isn't SDW. We haven't seen much from him yet but I know he has the potential to go off. He did only take 2 shots today.

    Re: Naz Long and player development

    Long looks like a guy that can light it up when he's confident. We never got to see him get that kind of volume of shots off last year, but man did he look good today.
