    Wow, I loved this highlight.

    That dunk was very impressive, but what stood out to me the most was an expolosiveness and burst that I don't think I've seen from Zion yet.

    Looked like he was dunking on a 9 ft rim.

    Prentiss's 3pt percentages continue to struggle. Is he nursing an injured hand?

    I haven't watched enough live action, but based on the highlights I've seen from CSU and CCL, his shot selection might be the issue. He likes to shoot contested shots off the dribble, often kicks his leg out, and fades away. These all lead to inconsistencies.

    Prohm said that he improved his three-point shooting in his year off. I guess we'll see. Every player is better off catching and shooting open three pointers. Nixon appears to prefer the fake crossover pull-up jumper with a hand in his face (not sure what the actual move is called), which looks cool, but is low-percentage. I wouldn't doubt if Nixon shoots well on the gun or in workouts, but struggles to translate it to live action. Just a hunch.

    There's a reason why Haliburton shot so well last season. He was wide open and didn't dribble.

    Do I need to post a link to all my highlights from tonight or does everyone know where to find them if they want to watch?

    Rasir in dunk contest.

    Grill in 3-point contest. Weird setup, he didn’t win despite a first round score of 22 and final round of 17. Winner went like 18 and 18 to win.

    I’m excited about Tre but then I always think back to feeling really excited about Tavon Sledge after cap city league. I do think Tre will me more of a contributor than I originally thought this year.

    Not exactly the most comparable players lol. Sledge was 5'9. Tre is 6'1.

    And Sledge was a worse shooter than me while Tre has the potential to be one of the best shooters Iowa State has had. Prohm is going to struggle to keep Tre off the court.

    I get Tre is said to be 6’1” but I have a really really hard time believing that. From video his body looks similar to Tavons. I’m sure though he probably is taller than he appears. I don’t see that as a limitation anyways for him. Like I said though, I think Tre contributes a lot this year and looks like a great outside shooter.

    He’s probably 6’1 with shoes considering how most b-ball folk measure.

    He probably is. I remember thinking the same about Monte then I ended up getting the chance to stand near him. Was definitely proven his listed height was accurate.

    Iowa State almost always measures correctly. They do it with shoes. He's listed at 6'2 on the official site.
