We should have a poll - which unforseeable bs happens to get Fran an extension?

Sandfort turns into a 42% 3-pt shooter.
Perkins suddenly starts averaging 18ppg.
Mr. Peabody averages a double double.
Sandfort was 46% in HS (closer line of course) and 96% from free throw. Shooting 42% isn't out of the question

Hawk fans are gushing over Luka's big/last game yesterday. It was against the 76'ers who rested their starters. What are the hawk fans going to talk about now? They are probably going to say he got screwed for not being selected to the all-rookie team. We know the portal is like a porta potty for Hawkeye basketball, they never want to go into it.
That was a NBA game in name only.

Maybe I should have said "turns into a 42% 3-point shooter and gets more minutes per game than Connor"

Yeah, that's a head scratcher. From 3, he shot 37% vs power 5 teams this year and 36% overall. Also, if he's truly 6'7" then his length in a guard role has to be better defensively that Connor. I could see him being problematic if his usage adjusts

Meh that guy sucks anyways.
I don't think you're necessarily wrong. He shot 31% from the field last year, had a decent assist rate but he's not a needle-mover really.

Iowa probably still wants a PG but not Phinisee doesn't seem like a guy I'd lose sleep over.
