Just a quick heads up in case anyone is able to watch. BTN is replaying our exhibition match up with SVSU. Scheduled to start at 3:00 PM est.
and... i like them? I think I like them.
I know they weren't popular here, but I do like the new uniforms, especially from the high BTN angle.
Edit: Also, I kind of expected Robinson to have Robinson III on his jersey. Not sure why, but it was surprising to not see the number.
Beilein ran a few 1-2-2 sets in when McGary and Morgan played together. Had a high/low look similar to Kansas (Bill Self) type offense. They didn't get deep enough into set without getting a shot, but they look to have another post option right away. I am hoping they add the single down pick to this concept Kansas runs on the backside for Hardaway/Robinson/Stauskus because it is great action and hard to stop. It is very similar action to what else Beiein likes to do and I have a feeling they will add it.
They also had McGary catch the first pass on the wing. He then passed to the top, set a downscreen and then posted up. Great action to work both bigs together at the same time. I haven't seen much of that before. These type of movements allow McGary and Morgan to play together and utilize both of their skill sets.
