Why would we let them stay close?
Screw that! Drink the Kool-aid, Memphis is going down!
We were shorthanded and still kicked the X men's ass.
We might not lose another game….
I think we got our 'attitude' back!Close **** that let’s beat their ass
That play where he sprung a trap was hilarious.If he plays four years Hunter is certainly going to break Monte’s steals record.
Haliburton and Morris clearly had ability to get steals right away but Hunter is on another level.
Hard to be critical with how George is playing. If anybody has a great season I hope its George. High energy, positive dude. Love the guy.Kind of is what it is at this point. I was kind of hoping we would sit him until the last TV timeout of the half after his first.
On a brighter note he looks so much better and more engaged under TJ. He's literally twice as good as he was at any point since maybe the very beginning of his sophomore year. He's actually a pretty good 5 man and yeah it'd be nice to keep him on the court. He gets some silly fouls for sure but IMO he gets screwed more often on cheap BS ones too.
He doesn't get enough credit for his range on defense. He actually has the ability to get to just about everything on the floor and in the air and it backfires on him a lot because if he couldn't get there then we wouldn't even be having this discussion. But he does, and he's always getting whistled right or wrong.
Also since I made this comment VT fans have shown up and they probably have as much as usCouple random observations.
Memohis by far brought the most fans. Followed with a big gap then Xavier then ISU then a massive gap to Virginia tech. Like VT brought 40 people.
Memphis and Xavier are the only teams to bring cheerleaders and Memphis brought 3x as many plus their mascot.
Barclays Center is a very modern and dark arena. Most of the concessions are closed but the seruo Is fantastic.
Xavier fans just aren’t that friendly. Not mean. Just not that open to conversation compared to the other schools.
VT fans are the nicest
All the floor seats are taken by Upsie employees
and they don’t give a **** about any team and I still don’t understand what Upsie is.
Memphis’ and Iowa State’s pregame videos are light years ahead of both VTs and Xavier’s.
Hardaway looks way skinnier in person
Keeping George out of foul trouble might be the story of the season.Hard to be critical with how George is playing. If anybody has a great season I hope its George. High energy, positive dude. Love the guy.
I think TJ and Kyle Green will work on him/coach him on how best to direct his effort, for the team. If he could just curtail his fouling even just a little bit?
Heard thru the grapevine that some accused him of being a 'drama queen' type when he was a freshmen. While surely he has matured alot, lets hope he does play smarter as the season progresses. He can really help us.I love George’s emotion and intensity but he needs to keep it under control, that is at least technical #2 (maybe 3 but don’t remember) on the season. We can’t afford him constantly being in foul trouble.
Seems like GC gets at least one mystery foul a game. I really want good things to happen for GC, he's probably not gotten the best coaching but has remained a hard worker with a positive attitude.Keeping George out of foul trouble might be the story of the season.
