I haven’t seen a lot of games live this year and I spent my last few days off watching some games.
My take away is I think we could end up being very good again. We need to be more consisteht for sure but I truly feel we have the talent to make a run.
Teskes play is huge as I think our bench is obviously weak right now but it’s got potential. I don’t think Simpson is as weak as everyone states though. I saw a lot of things I still liked out of him even if it’s not in the box score.
I think our d could be good and potentially better than most previous years. On the perimeter most guys move well and have active hands. I also think our rebounding could potentially be decent for once.
We still go through too many scoring ruts which has been a problem in coach bs tenure but a lot of that is relying on the deep ball in years past. This year I think it’s been poor decision making it looks like, along with guys finding their niche.
I think by the end of the year the pg platoon of Eli and X will be solid enough that it won’t hurt us. Hell they could end up being a nice combo.i do think playing moe with teske for spurts might end up being a good idea and in certain matchups it could be useful.
Mathews, Maar, and Wagner is a great trio. I think they could lead us pretty far. I’m pretty optimistic here and I think coach b has shown he can do a lot with far worse. The program is pretty talented right now. If they can blend this group just right another deep run is possible and with the influx of 18s next year I think we’re on a big run here.
