    Eikmeier, Vanderbeaken, and Staiger....

    Justin Hamilton the hidden gem. Hamilton should be getting more minutes, preferably some ofAlex T minutes. He in a lot of ways looks better Alex T. when he is out there, he knows how to position his body and when to put the ball on the floor and when not too, almost everytime he gets the ball he scores. His D is the biggest hindrance but i can't say one thing negative about him. He alters a lot of shots when he is in there but he is not the strongest rebounder, he needs to work on his defensive and rebounding footwork. When is the last time we had a big man that is close to seven foot as a freshman. He is coordinated and has a very bright future.

    Alex Thompson played a good game today. He went after some offensive rebounds and played better defense than anyone else we had down low. I have been surprised by Alex so far this year

    I think AT is our best post defender, and all he does is hustle, rebounds and grab loose balls. I don't think we should be cutting any of his minutes. Also, he got some tough fouls called on him today.

He brings an edge to the BB team like we haven't had for 3-4 years. Kind of extroverted vs. introverted. Opposing teams and fans will grow to hate him. Good stuff for us.

    I agree. Alot of folks rip on AT but he hussles and does make a difference even if he isnt ripping up the stat sheets.

    McDermott isn't playing AT out of sentiment. He gives him minutes because he's bringing something to the table (already pointed out).

    Re: Eikmeier, Vanderbeaken, and Staiger....

    About once a game, AT unveils some post moves that really, really look good. Then he drops a pass that would lead to easy points. (From there on, you see that they don't pass to him in some spots that would lead to easy buckets.)

    His defense is a nice bright spot, and I love his hustle. At least two of his fouls didn't look like fouls at all from the cheap seats. I really enjoy seeing him. It would be nice to have a frontcourt of Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell together, side-by-side, but who ever has that?

    you are not getting what i am saying the the three in the first subject line are great and are huge for us right now i am just saying down the line i think we are going to look back and say wow what a recruiting class eikmeyer and hamilton. That being said we do not know what pomlee and buckley will end up being but i think we will take are chances at this point. It could be the recruiting class that helped our two stars DG and Brackins turn this thing around.

    Bingo. Leadership too. AT, Petey and Haluska seem to be the guys that calm everybody down. At looks to be more muscular than in the past, but looks to be in better shape. Same with the 2 above. It looks like they really dedicated themselves in the offseason.

    As for big men, I think GMac makes it an easy sell because he really likes the position and knows it well. Players want to be polished at the little things, and I think Greg can really teach that stuff very well.

    No love for Diante??? 8 points, 7 boards, 7 assists is the kind of line I would like to see from him every game. He 10 times better than he was at this point last year.

    I like the part where he is making suggestions to the coaches, his basketball IQ is very high and he will be team leader in the future that other look to.

    Re: Eikmeier, Vanderbeaken, and Staiger....

    AT is a good defender, smart, experenced, and physical. He cannot make his own shot well but when open can hit, when needed. Honestly everyone that plays brings some positive to the game that in the past hasnt always been there. Hamilton is going to be good once he learns the game better, nothing but upside for him. There are not many 7 fters are athletic as he is or with the size he can be. Eikmeier is another that is going to be speical, he brings so much to the game other than his sweet shot. Staiger us getting more confortable and closer to 100%. Vanderbeaken is getting better and he still is learing once he gets a hang of it he will be a good player as well.
