2018 - PG - David DeJulius (Commit)

If the staff decides to stand pat in 2017 and it becomes clear in a few years that the guard spot is inadequate, I hope no one says we weren’t able to see it coming. I hope no one hesitates to put the blame squarely where it belongs.

A frontcourt player? I’m sorry but JB has mismanaged and misevaluated this roster going back to 2014.


#206

If the staff decides to stand pat in 2017 and it becomes clear that the guard spot was adequate, I hope no one still insists it is inadequate or the staff got lucky. I hope people put credit squarely where it belongs.


#207

Are you saying it is adequate with “still insists?” Thats hilarious. I’ll definitely own Poole not being starter level in year one and Brooks being a bench shooter. I’ve been on the record plenty saying there is a gaping hole where shot creation is concerned, so call me out if I end up wrong, but I doubt you’ll be around to own the long list of foolish opinions you’ve voiced on here.


#208

Can we point to wins and losses as proof of adequacy, statistical proof of a yet-to-be-determined threshhold, or is this another issue of style points?


#209

Not going to win tons of ball games with no shot creation and relying heavily on freshmen so I’m more than willing to use a certain win/loss baseline to gauge roster mismanagement and misevaluation.


#210

It’s always easier to talk about results than philosophies. If the wins fall below Warde’s threshhold, then there’s no reason to split hairs about style anyway.


#211

No, I don’t expect you to hesitate.


#212

No, that’s not what I said.


#213

Right? Haven’t heard that name in ages.


#214

#215

Excited to see this kid during the summer vs elite comp.


#216

#217

They couldn’t stop him. He was 15 of 19 from the foul line


#218

First game of the eybl was tonight and he had a great game
24 points
2 rebounds
3 assists
3-4 FT
5-9 3pt


#219

Killed it again in loss. Kid is going to shoot up rankings. I think he’s going to be very good. X , Brooks, and dejulius give me a ton of confidence going forward. Love what belein gathered here at the 1/ ball handlers spot.


#220

Correct. This morning he had:
22 points
4 rebounds
5 assists
9-17 fg
4-7 3pt


#221

He’s one of the best off the dribble 3 point shooter in the country


#222

His ability to shoot the ball off the dribble has been impressive from the start. Looks like he’s doing the same thing to start EYBL play.


#223

#224

I agree it’s clear he’s that good. Ever since the first Mattd video a year or more ago I loved his game. He was posting guards up and hitting faders ect. Just a crafty player.

I think if you look at the roster make up that adding some athletic 4 and an athletic wing would fit well with our current young guys in 18. Some guys who can defend/ rebound and take it off the dribble to the rim.
