    Not saying he can't be, but Percy & Edozie last year and Booker his senior year didn't avg. 10 a game. Even Matt at the end of last year was down to 10 or less.
    People don't realize how long 10 mpg is in the offseason.

    If it was obvious I doubt they recruit BDJ or Kane. He is not ready to contribute at the level we need yet. Like the kid, but I doubt he plays much again this year.

    The 7'-1" kid is 17 years old. Let's be patient.

    Even if he could score, there is no way you pass on the multidimensional game of Kane. I'm not sure how you think otherwise. He didn't say SDW was better he said he could score. You may be right and he isn't ready, but the recruitment of Kane and BDJ isn't proof of it.

    What proof is there that he can score? The ccl? In that case bubu was one of our best players.

    Giorgios is a greek Hakeem. At least that's what I'm hoping.

    Or next year either. Hallice Cooke is obviously going to be the favorite over SDW unless he improves drastically going into the 15-16 season. Naz is also the first guard off the bench, and he will NEVER lose that role to SDW. SDW may play some his senior year, but I wouldn't honestly count him in too much these next two years. These cupcake squads we play out of conference will be a decent test to see if he can actually score.

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    He is damn near a head taller than Fred. His height is definitely legit. He might be even a little taller than 7'-1"?

    I know exactly what averaging 10 minutes per game means, and its not that much. He may not meet that, and if he doesn't then fine. I'm not one to call someone a bust if they don't meet my expectations. The pump the brakes crowd should just chill out. Its not outrageous or unrealistic to think he could play 10 minutes a game..

    Link to a Johnny Orr and Murphy segment breaking down Julo.

    I always remember whenever Julo bringing the ball up and doing the behind the back dribble. I guess it was just seeing somebody his size with such great ball skills that amazed me. I wonder how he is doing these days. Last time I ran into him he looked a little rough. I know he was lucky to survive the car accident, but just curious if anybody has any insight on how he is doing.

    True....Matt THomas and Monte Morris playing as TRUE freshman was plenty of proof of it.

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    I think Tsalmpouris' minutes in the non-conference schedule will depend upon McKay's waiver. If McKay's waiver is denied, Tsalmpouris has a chance to see higher minutes than if McKay's waiver is approved.

    It's probably unrealistic.

    A TALLER greek version of Hakeem. That pic next to Fred should put to rest any of the questions about him being a true 7 footer.

    That's kinda what I was getting at. Thanks. And having guarded expectations doesn't mean we don't think the kid can develop into something valuable or special in the future.
