Hope he doesn't come back to bite us.

I guess if we still wanted him, he might've commited to us since he ended up in the Midwest.

I'm glad we got Spike, he's more of a PG and that's what we needed more than another SG, we have plenty of those, MBB is looking good for the future!

Della Valle will light up the scoreboard against us every time we play them, while his own players will struggle to shoot even 40%.

From what I've seen, the Buckeye fans seem to be convinced he's the next coming of Jon Diebler. I haven't seen more than a couple minutes of his highlight film, but he doesn't seem like a ~50% 3-pt shooter.

I wasnt impressed with the games I watched on ESPN.. He seemed very passive and his stroke was effective but a bit awkward. He did play on an all-star prep school team and hasn't played in the U.S. for long, so that may be an adjustment that he needs to make, but I don't see him being much of a threat in the B1G. I watched because I was worried Burke would leave and hoped he would be capable of handling the ball for us for a year and ended up thinking that he wans't capable of doing what we needed from him and he may or may not be a legit long range shooter. Good for him to get in to a big ten school, I'm not worried about him killing us next year or anytime in the future.
