    As I was setting up the IPad to make sure it was ready to stream this afternoon's game vs TTU, I noticed Iona was playing Indiana State on ESPN3. Tavon Sledge is starting for Iona. Glad to see his transfer is working out for him and best wishes for his continued success. Also noticed Iona has the country's 3rd leading scorer starting the other guard position.

    Fun to watch and get a basketball fix.

    Man, he loses the handle a lot. That's rough to watch.
    I felt for him when he crashed the boards. He had a good box-out, but the other guy was a foot taller.

    I think he's too short to be an effective basketball player. Not trying to be a hater, just from the 10 minutes I've watched.

    Just out of curiosity, is it an iPad with Retina display? If you say iPad 1 or mini I might throw up.

    Sincerely,

    I also consider myself an apple snob. My Apple IIe is doing me wonders.

    There are plenty of basketball players who have success despite their height. I would say him not having an outside shot hurts him more than his height.

    I should prolly have said, for what his game is he's too short to be effective. I agree with what you said ya.

    I turned on 2nd half and he has hardly played non factor at this point, mo mo jones is a great player and he looks to be about 5'10 at most.

    Why didn't he have to sit out for a season?

    This is the 3rd or 4th time Iona has been on that I've seen, Tavon would have been way over his head in the big 12. A redshirt year would have been huge for him, even at Iona. He could turn into a nice player for them but right now he's trying to get by strictly on being a great athlete first, great basketball player second. If his fundamentals and Bball IQ catch up with his athleticism, he could end up special player. He just has a ways to go.

    Jones is good, transfer from Arizona. Iona has had some really good players the last few years.

    I'm pretty sure he transferred because of family reasons? He appealed and they granted him immediate eligibility. If he even had to appeal idk how that all works.
