"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Let's break out our||
Champion and Russell Athletic gear and take a nap.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||My new Steph Curry's||
are the best ball shoe I've ever had - and I've had a large many.
Never tried another UA shoe, but they are fantastic.
The uni's are what the AD approves...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Very underrated suggestion||
It's never even an issue. Hell they use a smaller ball, they are 1/2 way there.
9 or 9 1/2 would do.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Sure||
a small pg going high off the glass with a 6 ft 8 POY bearing down is sure awful.
It's like you trying to lay it up with Howard or Gobert d'ing up - except there is no way in hell you'd even get it to kiss the glass.
But hey, awful...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Agree with this||
35 shot clock does the college game no favours. Boring is every team floating through their sets while flipping the rock to each other way beyond the perimiter, then start their real 'set' with 18 on the clock (oddly enough we have the 24 here in Canadian college). Widening the paint is also great. Hand check, well they've tried to ban it in the past and it always creeps back in unfortunately. Timeouts are absurd now.
Only thing I'd do different is eliminate the charge circle.
Geno is a brilliant showman and great at attention-getting. He's also a phenomenal coach and recruiter. He's better when he talks about strengths of WBB, intelligent movement, reading and react, spacing, defensive shifts, etc. Poor comment designed to draw attention to the WBB Final Four, nothing more.
The best pro teams embrace modern ball and are killing it - Atl, GS, Memphis, SA, etc. They are far better than any NCAA team just in terms of pace and movement.
That said, nothing beats the NCAA atmosphere in basketball. I am biased of course but really believe JB is at the forefront of modern basketball in college, maybe a few seasons ahead of his time - through a post destroyer 7-footer would still be nice.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly. DJ is what WCS||
Exactly. DJ is what WCS should aim to be. We dont know where the ceiling is but that should be his target type.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The kicks, man||
Pop into a House of Hoops sometime. All player-branded gear at the one here - zero team merch.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And AAU ball||
is off the charts.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||DeAndre Jordan||
is probably what WCS could aim for with a lot more work on his athleticism.
In today's pro game it's rim protect (he can certainly do that), set pick and roll, look for lobs.
His straight post game on O is pretty mediocre. Towns at least can back shorter guys in, use that shoulder-elbow bump effectively, and is murder at short range.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||It's easy||
You're the Leafs. We're not.
But you know that a good number of our best ever players have not been French right? And anglos here are almost all Hab fans right?
Wonder if Mac Bennett might do something. In the AHL now I think.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Trolololo||
Well done Max. Can't wait to see you and PK troll the borg in the playoffs. Oh wait...
Btw another ex-Wolverine Greg Pateryn is up with the Habs and playing 10-15 per game, playing well.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Great stuff!||
Congrats WBB! Great to see this after that bad end to the season.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Canada is still kind of a colony||
Queen is on our money and all that. But very very little cricket.
Our Ntl team made 3 WC's in a row (03-07-11) but there was very little coverage, and now the team is down in the dregs.
Very poorly promoted here. And facing impossible odds against hockey, basketball, soccer, baseball, football.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||But England is the OSU of everything||
to everyone everywhere, at least in the rest of the world.
And they were nasty cricketers, once.

Gotcha. I just couldnt see anyone except maybe SA finishing top of that pool.

A few days ago vs. SL. :)
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||Exceeded expectation, really?||
Exceeded expectation, really? I thought they were a semi final team before the WC, despite their previous couple of months in Aus. A lot of class in that team and that incredible talent pool to pick from.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||They do, the worry is that||
They do, the worry is that they dont have that batsman superstar to carry them if needed (though Smith could end up being that guy).

It was bad indeed. Was it the strategic approach or our players mental approach, or both?

Think Aus will win. Got a bit too much of everything batting and very exciting young bowlers. And of course Starc.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Except if you follow The||
Except if you follow The Ashes. And the way the ICC carries on with everything down to Test and Associates, test will be here a long, long time.
|4 weeks 18 hours ago||Australia. Family roots. Host||
Australia. Family roots. Host nation. Plus our bowlers are better than yours. And that top six...
|5 weeks 50 min ago||Good stuff||
Stay sober and stay home. Enjoy.

Or gold and white...

Best big event of the year for us of Irish descent. Well, the parade is anyways. We have a great one here in Montreal, one of the oldest in North America and gets about 500,000 spectators.
I'll be wearing kelly green, a lovely colour - except during football season, when it gets banished. UM shirt underneath of course.
ND fans are what I really think of as poseur Irish. Even the Irish ones. To hell with them.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Spike is the hardest working player||
But Walton started to find his stroke deeper into the season, and his decision making was getting better - slowly, but surely.
He is simply quicker and stronger than Spike, and next year will surpass him in many fields. Not to belittle Spike at all, and it only benefits Walton from playing with him and watching him; but Walton has a way higher ceiling, some of which we saw as the season wore on.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Think Walton is better||
when 100%, especially defensively where he is physical enough not to get constantly torched. And he does not need p&r action to drive-draw-dish.
Would rather Rawk come in from the bench. Think Spike's ability to curl and use screens + his quick release is underrated. Plus in JB's system one guy is not the exclusive ballhandler up the court, one guy does not trigger all the sets.
Healthy Walton is really, really good.
