By the way, I thought MH may saved this from being a blowout with his initial entry into the game.
We talked about this briefly at the game. There is a bias here that MH is not very good. However, he seems to do quite well against larger, slower centers.
We were down 8 or 9 when MH came in in the first half and I believe we cut it to 3 or possibly may have even tied it up.
He played 8 minutes and scored 4 points. I didn't do the KY points per 40 minutes but that is a rate of .50 points per minute. The next best on the team was AT with .39 points per minute played. MH only got one rebound in his 8 minutes on the court for .13 rebs/min. But MA only got 2 rebs in 37 minutes on the court or .05. MH had a turnover but also had an assist for a 1:1 assist/turnover ratio. He was 1 for 2 behind the arc. 50%.
I, for one, would have preferred MH getting more floor time this afternoon. He played a lot better than some of our starters and deserved more time on the court. At least today.

We have now played 11 games against teams in the top half of Division 1 in the last season-plus. In those 11 games, teams are shooting an average of 50.9% on FG's against us. This should be a far bigger concern than how many three pointers we can make.
hcgrad94- Stop calling him 70. What are you trying to prove? Stop being a wise guy. Why is it your business if he is 70?
because hc70 was banned from crossports. this ban was for violating the rule of creating multiple accounts, which he had obviously done on the old message board ("accgal", among others) and has done once again here as "ncaam".
p.s. - nobody needs your lecturing regarding how to respond to any poster, especially one who is banned and is breaking the rules of the forum.

when will an hc player make all pl first team again? the lack of any player since dave dudzinski to make pre or post season first team in our league does say something about the lack of top-level individual talent. collectively, the guys came together very nicely during the pl tournament last year. but nobody has stepped up as the go to guy, save ma during the pl tournament last year. tough to tell if he will be that guy consistently this year, since we've only played far superior teams to date who are not representative of the bulk of our schedule.
ma, rc, and kc seem to have the ability to be go to guys - and pb's emergence has been very encouraging - and i think we'll need three of these guys to play well every night to be a consistent winner. anyone else playing well will be icing on the cake. inconsistency out of any of them would spell trouble for us since we are not deep.

I'll judge this team on PL play, and PL play ONLY, as that is the only thing that matters.
If struggles continue through the first few PL games, then I'll get concerned. If still struggling at the midway point of league play, then I'll press the panic button. It's foolish to judge this team at this point after losses in 2 games they were never going to win, and one game they were a longshot to win.
An impact frosh is a real prize. Based on posting many of us thought we had one with TC. Alas, we don't even have a frosh giving us any minutes to rest the starters. And for those who criticise the Jr and Sr classes, give me next year's top 8 rotation. Maybe Coach is hiding one for the conference season.
