    Has a little ways to go on D, but like his offensive game which this team could use...I will say while Jackson has struggled shooting Ive been very impressed with his D...

    He's not comfortable handling the ball, but he looks fine doing everything else.

    Grill has flashed athleticism and was able to hit a couple of 3's and considering last night that is something. CG was swimming a bit on Defense, and getting over pursuing and getting out of position like most freshman would be 3 games in. I can see him gaining minutes later in the year once the game slows down some for him. Him getting playing time this NonCon is important to lower the learning curve.

    Tre is comfortably in front of him in the guard rotation today. He's played good on ball and the staff has rewarded him playing over Grill to this point. I don't see that changing soon. Tre will hit 3's soon, he has his entire life. Much like Caleb on defense I think he's rushing a bit right now one he sees a few go in they'll come in bunches.

    Both freshman look like Big 12 players and are worthy top 8 rotation which is pretty good to see this early.

    I've been very impressed with Tre's defense so far. On offense he seems to be pressing a little bit but he'll figure it out. Grill will continue to get minutes as long as he keeps making plays and shots on offense. His defense will continue to get better, but I really like those two off the bench.

    He would be if they had Bolton, Hali, Nixon, and Grill with just one big like Prohm talked about in the preseason.

    We could see that line up for short minutes to run and gun... but I doubt it'll be often due to the size limitations on def and rebounding. Plus Zion looks the part of PF and working hard on both ends he's earned minutes. Plus he has hit some 3's too, there is no reason to go away from Zion to force in a 4 guard lineup.

    I disagree. Zion has looked good imo.

    Doubtful it’s that definitive yet. It could take some time away from the two big lineup, as well as the Zion lineup.

    We’re susceptible to defensive and rebounding issues with two bigs, too, largely due ball screen defense. Zion’s got a great opportunity to get playing time as the small-ball four defensively, but he’s not preventing a four guard lineup if Jackson or Grill start to progress like freshmen tend to do.

    Four guards wouldn’t be “forced” as much as it’s a different option, which is likely why Prohm has discussed it a couple times.

    I thought Zion really battled on the boards last night, but man....that shot is still such a line drive.
    But....he did make 1 more three than all but one of his teammates. :eek:

    His game actually reminds me more of Naz than Matt. Not sure Matt had the athleticism to finish that play last night (where Tyrese dove for a tip out under the hoop on the inbounds). Tyrese rightfully gets more credit for that play, but wasn't an easy finish by any means

    I hope they practice anticipating that grill will be a regular rotation guy and give him a little more go VS USM. Having an extra guy playing quality minutes will really help out during the back to back battle 4 Atlantis games.

    That play needs to end up on ESPN's top 10

    He is 3 of 4 from 3 for the season and he looks pretty confident when he shoots. He also seems aggressive on the floor. It's way to early to make any assumptions based on what we've seen but if the rest of the team keeps shooting like they have and he keeps shooting like he has I don't know how you don't put him out there.

    Actually, Scotty is a thug, the original thug. I don't think Grill is a thug. Jacobsen, he is definitely a thug. We need more thugs.

    This took me a minute to figure out what you were saying. I thought for a hot second you through TJ was coaching for us last year.
