    Maybe I'm also surprised he's still on the team. Clearly not going to get playing time. My guess is Prohm has told him what's holding him back and he's either not disciplined or not able to take that next step.

    Really like Bolton's craftiness. We've been missing somebody with his craftiness. If he can get himself up to even a 35% 3pt shooter he'll be all conference.

    That was TH's worst game I've seen him play and definitely the worst this year. Turnovers, bad shots, etc. Glad we got the win it will be a good learning game for him. I liked his aggressiveness.

    Or, transferred before the first game once he learned after practices that there are too many better players ahead of him.

    I find it odd KenPom dropped us from 16 to 15 projected wins after last night. I assume one of our future opponents must have got a nice bump.

    For the Grill lovers, he just about got crossed to the floor by a player on NIU player not named German. He has a pretty stroke, but on ball defense needs some time to catch up (Especially against big 12 play).

    It was good to see Solo posting up aggressively on the block and really looking for the ball. Much like Nixon I don't think you necessarily want him to be the team's primary offensive option, but him being a legitimate scoring threat should help loosen things up a bit for the perimeter guys.

    Not clamoring for the kid - rooting for the kid. Seems like a great kid and a great teammate.

    Was he the defensive weakness in the first half?

    The game on defense is still really fast for him, and you can tell. His effort is there, so that is all that you can ask. His lateral quickness and anticipation will progress.

    No, but NIU also doesn't have any ballers outside of German. He was their offense in the first half, so whoever was guarding him automatically became the weakness in the first half.

    Is it even remotely possible that he likes his teammates, his coaches, and university?

    Big fan of his game so far, especially that Monte-like floater he's been using. He's averaging 14 points a game already and that's only shooting .133 from deep. If he gets that percentage up around the .361 he shot at Penn State he'll be deadly.

    Could German potentially be one of those NIU to ISU transfers?

    The list of players beat by guys other than German is longer than Grill.

    He’s not that much behind on defense for it to cancel out the gain from his shooting. Not to mention his feel for making the right play.

    I’ve wished that for years, but he’s now a senior

    Probably not considering he’s a senior

    God, I love Conditt and his presence/blocking ability. That dude improved so much since last season. Conditt really sets the defensive tone which helps other guys to focus on perimeter defense (which we lacked for so long).

    Didn't he shoot 40% in high school. I know it's high school but have you seen our 3 point stats?
