Between a longtime college basketball addiction and looking for academic jobs, you learn a lot of schools.

Odessa was advertising heavily for years. It's apparently tough to get and keep people in Odessa.
The jewel of the south? No way.

Particularly right now! Russia and SA are going to see to it.

Scratch that. I thought Northwestern Oklahoma State is where Dennis Rodman went. Nope it was Southeastern Oklahoma State.

Wow, I can get behind this spin :)

32% in high school equates to what next year at the college 3P line? I’d guess it goes down a little, but maybe not. A 30% 3P shooter isn’t worth the downside of playing two bigs on defense. Why not just play a wing?

Fwiw, Jacobson was 32% on 3Ps at ISU.
I don't think Foster is the next coming of Kevin Durant but he isn't a typical ISU recruit. I might be wrong, but Foster might be our highest rated post recruit since Brackins.

Playing 2 posts doesn't have to be a defensive liability. The converse can also be true. Two posts can create mismatches as well. A little tough for a 6'6" guy to guard Conditt or Foster in the post.

There were a lot of very good teams that played 2 posts over 6'8" last year.

Man to man may be rough with two 7' bigs, but zone done right could work. Key is to do something we haven't done in a long time, win the rebound battle.

Playing two posts doesn’t have to be a defensive liability, but two posts like Young and Foster under this staff will be imo.

Foster, as a freshman, isn’t posting up 6’6” forwards any better than Jacobson did last year. Imo, of course!

I’d be surprised if we have success with Foster seeing a lot of minutes at the 4. Maybe the staff makes it work
