    Re: Hamilton Learning on the Fly

    To say the least, I think his improvement has been the brightest spot on the team so far this year (though if Staiger can consistently drive and finish and drive and pull up and make mid-range jumpers, I may have to change my mind).

    Yeah KG, I liked the dunk in traffic. He needs to dunk even more when he gets a rebound in traffic though. He seems to miss his fair share of bunnies in that situation, whether he is just tapping the ball with one hand or trying to shoot too quickly. He showed he can just jump and dunk; now use that agression more!!

    My mancrush on JH only got bigger during the Texas game.

    Re: Hamilton Learning on the Fly

    Usually guys his size catch the ball, fumble it a bit, bring it way too low and possibly even try to dribble and then turn it over. He, however, seems to have great hands and keeps the ball high. He is really learning quickly. He is JUST a freshman. Cool.

    Brackins biggest problem in the first half with the double team...aside from the fouls.

    Yeah, that really drives me crazy to watch. He works with his back to the basket and has the ball low. He is typically looking over his shoulders to try to get a look at the defender and rim and some help defender will come over and swat the ball out of his hands. But, I'm being picky. He is nearly averaging 20 a game.

    IMO, he turns over the wrong shoulder a lot.

    He does. That and he has no left hand. He will turn like he is shooting with his left hand and the shoot with his right. Then he gets blocked.

    Once Craig Brackins develops a left he will average 24 a game in college. Mark it down

    Re: Hamilton Learning on the Fly

    I have really enjoyed Ham's progress so far, he really looks like he is having fun on the floor. The more experience he gets the better and better he will get, which opens up a bunch of things for this team.

    Re: Hamilton Learning on the Fly

    Why does the article call him a "forward". Isn't he the only true center we have?

    Re: Hamilton Learning on the Fly

    I'm concerned that with his seemingly exponential rate of improvement from age 16 to now, he'll be a lottery pick by his junior year... oh to have those kind of issues again with ISU players...


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    This is the one thing besides Craig's inability to perform a shotfake that annoys the bejeezus out of me.
