    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    While his schematics and charisma have been complimented well, and rightfully so, I'm beyond thrilled to see how well Hoiberg can develop all these guys (Nader, Hogue, SDW, Custer, etc..). It's not just a flash in the pan either. Fred has developed the game of Melvin, Diante, etc..., and Naz obviously. Truly could not be more excited for the future. Hoiberg is a dream come true for this program. We've got a great one and I'm excited for this ride.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    Naz can elevate and release his three shot fairly high. He is tough to stop.

    Naz plays much better D than Tyrus did tho. Long's D alone earns him the start. Let alone the fact that he is currently our best shooter.

    He can play for long stretches (30 minutes tonight). He also had couple of rebounds and only one turnover. He is the team's second leading scorer.

    Nice. You didn't have to press for that one, either.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    I'm not sure we should start Ejim, Niang and Hogue just because we don't seem to have a backup we are ready to play at this time for the bigs. We could go small if we got in foul trouble and go with 3 guards but I like Hogue off the bench and starting Long and Thomas.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    Whether we decide to go big or small with the starting 5 I don't see how we can keep Naz out of the starting 5 with his ability to stretch the D & play great defense. Seems like a no brainer at this point....discussion is probably between Hogue & Thomas at this point. Which is a damn good problem to have.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    Love the development of Naz into a very good player. Also think he has taken on the role of Chris Babb. Even his hairdo reminds me o Babb. Very valuable to this team.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    First off, 3sus of Nazareth is one of the better nicknames I've ever heard.

    Secondly, 3sus seems like the type of kid who really wouldn't care if he started or came off the bench. And really, does it matter if he starts or not? It didn't seem to hinder Tyrus's game, or the team, last year.

    Re: NOTEBOOK: Naz Long, the silent assassin

    If Naz keeps working with Fred he is going to be quite the player by his senior year. A valuable, versatile player. I look for SDW to be the same way.

    having an effective 6th manis obviously important. However, it is equally if not more important to shut the other team down at the beginning of each half so they don't gain momentum. Naz is currently shooting the ball better than Thomas and is the better defender. Plus, Thomas may relax a bit more coming off the bench.
