    #21 Thomas

    I think he's doing great as a incoming freshman and starting on this team.

    But Im worried about his starting position.
    I don't think his defense is a liability but surprisingly his offense is, and not from being to greedy; he needs to fire it up start blasting some shots!

    I know the 'he's not big man on campus anymore' BS excuse but he is, he's a starting FRESHMAN on a top 25 team in the BIG XII!!!
    Wonder what CFH needs to do to light a fire under him?

    Seemed CFH is starting to realize this as #21MT is riding the pine a lot after starting (only 19 mins today)

    Im really excited to see some of his magic and wish he could get his confidence up, were gonna need his range come Big XII time.

    Maybe he just needs a cheer from us GO #21!!!

    Really would love to here thoughts of others on this. I really thought I would see a coming out party by now.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    I did not expect to see countless posts and threads knocking Matt Thomas every day. I thought people picked Percy as the guy for pointless criticism.

    Kid's a freshman that defers on a highly effective team. What's the problem?


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

    He'll be fine. Our guard future with Naz, Monte, Matt, Custer is really bright.

    Matt is playing within himself, and doing positive things. Needs to be a like less jumpy on D, but he'll get there.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    I still think he's adjusting to college ball. I think he starts still but we see his minutes go down and SDW get more playing time in the guards rotation.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    He's still adjusting to playing against much stronger competition. He will be fine. His mechanics are top notch and he's smart. He'll get better every week on D. His offensive confidence will grow. By next year, we'll be very pleased with him as a player. This year will probably be up and down, which is common for FR.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    I like him....a lot. He goes quiet at times, but for a Freshmen, dude can play. And his game is more developed than I would have thought, plus he can defend a lot better than I expected. REally really hard to come in and play at this level, and I think he is doing a great job. Long way to go but great start.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    It's gotta be a little intimidating starting with guys like Kane, Ejim, Niang, and Hogue. He will be fine, he just knows we already have go to guys right now.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    I am REALLY impressed with the fact that the guy gets to start, can't wait to see him deliver the gold like Niang does in his sophomore year. I guess I would just be afraid his confidence might take a hit if he would loses starting position for a game or two.

    Re: #21 Thomas

    We have four ridiculously good players right now. Matt is deferring to them and only taking good shots and making smart decisions. He doesn't need to go off for this team to be successful.

    Would you rather have him forcing shots?
