Nothing definitive in this article, but CSD said he could've gone back in so I expect him to play.

Ok, he's not starting.

Brown 3-3, 2-2 from deep.
DanaDane

No surprises. We are gonna win by offense this year, not defense. Really poor man defense so far.

Disagree. Poor? Hardly
DanaDane

Wow. What a no-look pass to Sochan. Wow
DanaDane

You and I are watching 2 different games. We're out of position on almost every trip down the floor. Announcer was dead wrong. 2 of the 3 TO's were unforced. Try again.

Wouldn't say poor. Maybe needs improvement.

Bonner looks like no threat out there. Looks very timid.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Hate that Flagler is still hurt but glad to see Bonner get a lot of time in a game like this. Could be pivotal later in the year.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Yes. That's why it's good to get him some time and hopefully he gets over the timidity.

I don't think he is ready for this level, I think the plan was a redshirt year and now he is forced to play meaningful minutes.
IowaBear

Akinjo needs to have a good game. Him in Mayer need to take over
CTbruin
How long do you want to ignore this user?
We are very aggressive with man to man.

Yes. We are watching different games

DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Redshirt year definitely would have been the preference. Plus, the tradeoff is that with Love's injury we lost our only "big" guard at the same time.
BUBradley
How long do you want to ignore this user?
If Akinjo could find his shot this would be a different game.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Being aggressive is not being on the correct side of the hip playing man defense. Plus we're getting outrebounded 10-4 while they're shooting 56% from the floor. Play D like that against Nova and we'll lose by double digits.
BUBradley
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Making up with these great assists tho!
IowaBear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Good analysis DD. Defense is definitely going to get tested next week in the Bahamas
DanaDane

Did they give Flo a flop warning? What were they saying?

Confident LJ Cryer is a fun L J Cryer to watch when we have the ball.

Now, CT, you can say they're starting to play some good D. They're fundamentally in the correct positions to make plays, well all of them except Bonner.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I just keep pinching myself when I watch Brown and Sochan. I knew they were gonna be good on offense, but I didn't realize they were gonna be this good this early. Both with amazing court vision and excellent passing skills, which you don't often see at that age or experience level.

Definitely boards are an issue.
vanillabryce
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I wouldn't say the D has been poor, but…

We have been out of position
Haven't finished with a blockout
Missed some rotations
Mayer plays straight up and has allowed two guys to get by him

All fixable items
CHP Bear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Myers 0 pts, 1 rb.

That block by Sochan without fouling was fantastic
