    Wiley and Purifoy

    Based on what Heron has shown, he is Auburns version of Sindarious Thornwell. Potential to be SEC POY but likely a rotational /role guy at best in NBA playing limited minutes. People take for granted just how dang hard it is to make it in the NBA Heron isn't near quick enough to defend the 2 and not long/quick enough to defend the 3 based on AU llay Heron can create some shots on his own at the college level but not at an elite level that is NBA worthy The reason he hits contested jumpers is because he isn't able to create his own shot at will at college level like a NBA talent guard. The fact that Heron is even taking contested jumpers is a negative in terms of decision making Hard to say he is a great outside shooter when he is sitting at 30% on 3FG right now. Ya he shot better FR year, but inconsistency is a huge negative for a shooter. Plus those Melo "Shake n Shoot" long 2 bricks areNt doing him favors. On the drive, Mustapha hasn't shown the explosion necessary to be an offensive threat off the bounce. At the NBA level he won't be as physically imposing on drive and needs to show more finesse/athletcism

    Okeke injures knee at Team USA tryouts

    Kyle Tucker, a UK beat writer who was in CO, said they took him out if a brace and he didn't need ice. Seems to believe it is similar to Kevib Knox situation where playing it ultra safe is the right call

    Purifoy position change

    I posted this awhile back pointing out just how big of an effect that ankle injury had on Purifoy shot selection Assuming 2FT= a 2FG attempt, Purofy went from 5+ 2FG attempts to <1 2FG attempts per game Average Purifoy 2FG Attempts Per Game Pre Inj : 4 Att/Game "6WK Recovery Period 8 Games": 0.75 Att/Game Last 5 Games : 5 Att/Game FT/game First 7 games back : 0.7FT/gm Last 6 games : 3.2FT/gm
  4. Shun Williams Tweet guy runs "On the Radar Hoops"
  5. Not sure why people think players that stay for only 1-2 years won't develop a connection and/or affinity for Auburn. We had a one year hired gun in football and ended up putting him in our national commercial. Any one and done player at Auburn who leads us to tournament success will be remembered and cherished. Likely that he revels in that glory and comes back if we love him enough

    Steven Pearl promoted to assistant coach

    1) Tony Jones is almost for sure not coming back to AU. His departure wasn't on great terms 2) You can't compare this to Lashlee, Lashlee was at least a solid to good recruiter with a track record of success at other stops Steven may end up being good, but on paper this is a huge downgrade. Dollar had extensive connections to our #1 recruiting area (ATL), was a good recruiter and had experience as a major level coach

    Chad Dollar to South Florida

    First, Porter Sr is a natural fit at Mizzou as he coached there already (women's) and daughter plays there. It isn't quite like Simmons as Porter Jr has a younger elite brother which gives Mizz at least 2 years of top talent. Worth the trade for sure As for Dollar, keep in mind a few things 1) It is his alma mater 2) He was a longtime assistant of the new coach 3) He likely got more money/path to being AHC while AU that doesn't exist

    Tired of watching basketball

    Hopefully the new coach can recruit, Dollar has been a big part of our ATL success with his connections Wouldn't mind bringing someone in with NYC/Norrh East connections or someone with INTL connections
  9. -Coaches can force players to shoot Rick Barry style if they suck so bad at the Ft line -Coaches are responsible for allowing players to play if lazy/lacking energy on defense -Coaches are responsible for ensuring players are aware of the clock situation and what to do It was a team that lost this game and blew the lead. Players and coaches deserve blame for their contributions to the loss. Both parties definitely made it possible

    DeSean Murray. How good is he?

    So Purifoys lack of driving/defensive effort was almost certainly related to playing very injured. Typical recovery from high ankle sprains are 4-6 weeks for athletes Seems to fit nicely with the stats on Purifoy's inside offensive game Average Purifoy 2FG Attempts Per Game Pre Inj - 4 Att/Game "6WK Recovery Period 8 Games"- 0.75 Att/Game Last 5 Games - 5 Att/Game FT/game First 7 games back -0.7FT/gm Last 6 games - 3.2FT/gm

    New Williams

    That wasn't me speculating. I've heard it twice now from people who work with basketball Just pay attention to the video you posted, everything New does is straight line vertical stuff while his fellow dunker is spinning all over. New is having trouble moving side to side not jumping. One person made the comment he is having trouble keeping Keim in front of him on defense for example He can jump all day but that is no indication of his knee health

    New Williams

    That wasn't me speculating. I've heard it twice now from people who work with basketball New is having problems with lateral movement/mobility. He can dunk all day because that doesn't put the same demands as say playing defense on his knee. From the videos I've seen of him dunking or practicing, he rarely if ever demonstrates high stress on his knee from a lateral movement

    New Williams

    On the New Williams note, his knee isn't fully recovered. His lateral movement is severely diminished right now and whether it improves is a question mark He is technically healthy enough to play basketball, his actual quality of play clearly shows lingering knee issues. If his knee knee ever gets 100% , he will easily be in the rotation. Kid is an absolute stud even in his skills as well as athleticism

    End of the first quarter, where we stand

    To add Massey prediction has us win% v* Boston College 72% v* Oklahoma 17% @ UCOnn 32% @TCU 23% To to add to the UCOnn game though, this should be less home court advantage/crowd being a game near Christmas with students on break during a down year

    End of the first quarter, where we stand

    Don't know if you weren't including TCU since it is mid SEC slate but as of now, we won't be favored @TCU They are ranked higher by a healthy margin in the following rankings -KenPom -Massey Composite -Sagarin While TCU did just lose big to @SMU, they have a number of other solid wins so far and Jamie Dixon has done a great job thus far
