    Paging Matt Thomas...

    Would be nice to have another consistent 3 point threat.

    Naz Long did step up last year. Truthfully, I wasn't expecting that from him. I expect Matt Thomas to be "that' guy next year. From everything I've heard, Thomas couldn't miss in practice but couldn't translate that to Big 12 games. After getting his feet wet, he's going to be a big part of our gameplan next season. I can see Matt making 3-5 3's a game for us next season and being a "Tyrus McGee" type with no fear.

    Agreed. Monte will be 1st or 2nd All Big 12 with some impressive counting stats. Won't beat his Ast/TO ratio but will still be very impressive with more Ast and pts/g.

    I don't expect a 'breakout' from Naz, though I do expect a steady improvement, especially with driving/ putting the ball on the floor. His breakout was this past season.

    Naz will at least put up the same numbers he did this year. His ability to create offense only improved as the season went along. He was taking many more 2 pt. FG's later in the season compared to only shooting 3's the majority of the season. His dribble-drive will only improve IMO, and we'll see it a lot more next year.

    I would love for his dribble drive to improve on par with what Phil Forte did this year. Can be very effective for a three point marksman.

    Love the way Naz finished the season. Kid has no fear, whether it be pulling the trigger from anywhere on the floor, rebounding, taking it to the hole and generally mixing it up.

    I hear that they are collaborating with National Geographic on a program about how to better protect endangered species. That same protection, I gather, can also serve as a safeguard against McCabe's advice to the Hok fanbase.

    Monte Morris will play in the NBA very soon, he has the brains and drive to do it.
