  1. Im not worried about our shooting at all. We don't shoot it well, that won't suddenly change. If anything it may bring some teams back towards us and be an asset. I so share your second concern for Okoro's health, which is why I am very curious what rotations CBP will use. You nailed this one. When we have bad offensive stretches, it is less about shooting and more about lack of ball movement. Stagnant offense is our worst enemy. We at times really hurt ourselves not getting into any offense until 10 seconds on the shot clock with a high pick and roll. Have to get going earlier in the
  2. PG: as expected SG: overall production above expected SF: as expected (which is a compliment due to CBPs preseason praise of Okoro) PF: below expectations C : as expected bench has been inconsistent but about as expected
  3. 4,5,6 seed may or may not make much of a difference. The draw, who plays who, matters much more. Right now when looking at the potential seedings, there are teams on all the 3, 4, 5 and 6 lines that I would like our matchup and that I wouldn't. Right now, I'd like CBP to figure out our new rotations and we will see where all the chips fall.
  4. I think all the OT wins factor in as well. If voters look at metrics, we are in the 30s. Our record is a bit better than our level of play. We have 13 wins by single digit margins, games won or lost in essentially 3 possessions. Our record could easily be a few games worse. At this point in the season, I wouldn't get too hung up on ranking. Its much more about seeding and draw. We are a 5 seed right now and I think that is a fair seed. I'd like to get off that 5 line though with a few wins in Nashville.
  5. Currently we are on the 5 line, with a 12 matchup in the first round and likely a 4 in the second. While the top looks pretty weak this year (comparatively to recent years) the 3 and 4 seeds look brutal. Not sure a deep run in Nashville will move us much at all, but I'd sure love to get off that 5 line.
  6. Per Ken Pom: Auburn has a better probability to reach the SEC semis and Final than any other team, and has the second highest probability to win it all, 1.3% behind UK.
  7. Well the game have been played, post-season and the big dance await, it's great to be an Auburn Tiger! So let's jump right in and take a look at some preseason predictions and where we ended up, as well as look at some particular players and what we need as we begin postseason play. (First lets review some predictions) From my season preview: "My mostly uneducated prediction for the season is 19-11 overall and 9-9 in the league. Think we will likely be a bubble team that hopefully gets the benefit of the doubt on selection day, as we have a pretty unimpressive out of conference sch
  8. In addition to @cole256 Point, it was also to get Wiley out of those high pick and rolls. We were really getting hurt in those so going zone eliminates Wiley being in that play and keeps him in a position to protect the rim.
  9. I agree we aren’t good in the half court, but I do think the guard weave has helped the stagnant half court offense. Nothing is more effective than unpredictable true movement. I think our movement is best when we go small at the four. Maybe Cambridge has earned some more time in the floor and we will see that lineup more this game.
  10. I can't begin to describe how badly I want AU to put on a great performance tonight. I'll always take a W, but I would like a whipping tonight. The problem with that is Bama fits the mold that can give us trouble. They rebound the ball well, shoot good percentages and can make outside shots. IF we are struggling to make shots against this type of team, we struggle. Looking back on our first matchup, we played quite poorly, 21 TOs, 31 PFs, 64 points on 31% shooting from the floor, we missed 13 free throws, Samir had more turnovers than points, McLemore, Cambridge and Flanigan gave us very littl
  11. Well, so much for wait and see about his return. Good for him. Now let's see how far he can take us this year. Still kinda strange having two and dones and one and dones coming through Auburn. We are going to lose our entire starting 5 and our 6th man next season, but we can worry about that another day.
  12. I have no sources, so I'll take your word for it.
  13. I'm rushing this on a short lunch break, but here we go: This game comes down to two things: rebounding margin and turnover margin. We need to win the rebounding big and keep it even in the turnover department, Arkansas needs the opposite. Arkansas is small, like Cimeon Bowers Auburn days small. They play 4 guards and a forward basically, and yet as a team don't really shoot the 3 well, getting most of their shots and points inside the arch. Our 4s will be challenged to guard the dribble drive and we may go with our smaller line up some tonight as well. Arky wins games by slo
  14. I'm not saying he won't go, just that it isn't a lock yet. He isn't a lottery pick in every projection, and mock drafts at this point change a lot going forward. I've seen him as high as 6th and as low as 22nd in recent mock drafts. Let's be clear, he is likely gone, but not a lock at this point. A little food for thought. The 4 year deal for the 7th pick last year was 24 million, and the four year total for the 20th pick was 12 million. Depending on a lot of variable with draft class strength, projections, etc...coming back for one year could net him 10+ million if he ends up a later fi
