    Appreciate it. I try to show the positive side of things, and you're absolutely right about JB.

    Last year we thought we were contenders to win the ACC, and make a deep run in the NCAA tourney. Now everyone is down on us a bit, which is fine. It makes absolute sense, but we may just end up with the talent to make a run depending on who we add.

    I have said in the past that it's a developmental year, but the options opening up give me more hope.

    Good to see him in action. I was a bit cautious because he seemed to still have a slight limp moving around on the bench all season. Then again, he appeared to have the same limp walking to the stage at the recent 'Cuse Awards so maybe that's just how he walks :noidea:

    Nice video. To me Moyer is a four who might be able to play a few minutes at the three. Obviously there is no difference in the zone. I think he will be much more effective catching the ball at the high post and on the baseline, than if he had to start his move outside the three point line.

    Exactly my thoughts. I've watched a few Oshae games and he does operate pretty well starting his move outside the three point line. I do think Moyer will have a decent handle. The only issue with Moyer is I haven't seen any sort of back-to-the-basket game. Hopefully Thompson is working on a few post moves (Moyer too).

    Let's add Matthew to our recruiting crew; he seems to be the most consistent recruiter we have!

    Matt getting some work in with coach cals boy. His shot is looking pretty good lately. Really hoping between him and oshae that we all will be surprised cuz they will definitely be getting playing time and we sure will need some scoring to come from somewhere.

    Hey everyone long time lurker and I mean a real long time lol, but I always compared Moyer as a John Wallace important type recruit to the program. Both players sticking with the program despite our probation lets hope Matt can develop into the player John was but we already know what great recruiter Matt has been for SU! Go Orange!

    Very impressed with the way Matt used his redshirt season. It looks like he's all lean muscle everywhere. His handle is improved and his shot is completely different. When we add Dolezaj a lot of people are going to be surprised by our group of forwards.

    He's gunna turn some heads for sure. You can tell he has used his redshirt year to really work his butt off. Hard not to root for a kid like him that works hard, represents us well and WANTED to be at cuse! Can't wait to see what he does this year

    You know MM was a top 50 kid last year. He's had a year to get stronger and improve and learn our system. It's reasonible to say it's like getting a top 30ish kid this year.

    "Up all night again — as for sleep, no comprende
    I don't sleep 'cause sleep is the cousin of death
    Least that's what Nas say
    Sleep is a state of mind
    And to know is to be on your way"

    Footwork seems a little slow as well. I don't foresee him taking many people off the dribble.

    If he's at the 4 probably not at all, if he does get run at the 3, could be a problem.

    Matt working hard at home...kids been doing two a days on his own. Seems to be really driven and ready to show people what he's made of! Like what I've seen from him lately.

    While at first I might agree, it actually depends on if you add the word "made" in front of it. If they are attempts, math will favor the dunk, even with the point differential. While at the Wisconsin game with Zippy, I remember thinking, "Man, if Lydon would do more of that", as I watched his counterparts taking it strong to the hole and dunking...one time even landing on Lydon's shoulder. I guess I miss seeing players more aggressive at the rim. Feels like it's been awhile.
