    Thomas

    I just want to mention that I was extremely impressed with Thomas tonight. He had 6 huge rebounds, and had a nose for the ball all night. He broke down on defense a few times, but this team really has some great young talent, including Morris. Thomas though really impressed me with his nose for the ball tonight.

    He is a guy you can tell immediately that he will improve with experience.

    Re: Thomas

    I also thought it was his best effort so far.
    I expected Naz to start instead of Matt.
    Guess coach Fred knows what he's doing and why he is doing it.
    Great experience for all the freshmen, will help us play better in the league.

    Re: Thomas

    Ya MT definitely played like a FR at times but hit a couple of big shots and had some crucial boards down the stretch.

    Considering we were missing 3 of our starters in the final 90 seconds I'm really proud of our squad.

    As MT's confidence grows he'll become very good.

    Re: Thomas

    Scared to shoot a few times tonight. Needs to get the confidence to step up and jack up threes in this offense. There are times the team we have out is not a very deep three point shooting team. Will come with time though.

    Re: Thomas

    You can tell the lack of experience is currently holding him back. However, the talent is obvious, and playing an important role in a very tough road win is a great early game for a freshman.

    I think he is still out there getting comfortable playing with and against D1 athletes.

    Even more important than his D IMO is he needs to work on getting himself open and getting shots.

    Re: Thomas

    He's played extremely well considering the games he's played in this year. He'll be more than ready for conference season.

    I don't think he's scared to shoot, he's just patient. We're all used to the sight of someone jacking up a three at the slightest opening, it might be a different plan this year.

    Re: Thomas

    I was happy to see how Thomas found other ways to contribute. He was known as a shooter, but I am certain that Hoiberg didn't recruit him only for his shooting ability.

    Re: Thomas

    Baby steps. He just wrapped up a very tough two game stretch for a FR, one if which being in a very hostile arena.

    He will continually get better throughout the year (MM too).

    By the mid conference, commentators will be commenting about what a great fit he is for Hoiberg's system and how he'll make opposing B12 fans mad for years to come.

    Re: Thomas

    The threes he made today were from NBA+ range. Showing his mid-range game (that floater was pretty) from time to time will only help get more open looks from 3 later.
