Nice Rodger Sherman write-up on Moe.

"The best part of each play is the instant after he gets the ball. He’s like a video game character that has more weapons than any person could conceivably hold in real life — he needs a second to go to the weapons interface, pick which gun or melee item is best for this specific attack, and then he goes to work."

I regret that I have but one up vote to give your title. One of the little appreciated parts of Mo on the team is the infrequent but always very fun Wagner opera puns. Just do not get enough of that in my daily life

Being a star on an NCAA champion helps your draft stock!  Obviously I would love to see him stay, but if not he has already had two games for the ages during tournament time.  Great job by him, this team, this staff, water guns, biscuits...the list goes on.

...plane slides off runway. Horrific tragedy narrowly avoided. Team goes 6-0. The three W's - Walton, Wagner and Wilson - become, if possible, a better version of Burke, McGary and Robinson. This is a tournament season for the ages.

Right?  Even after he blasts through the tourney averaging 18-19 ppg on high efficiency, and narrowly loses tournament MVP to Walton.  Coach B has lots left to teach.

The best part of the livestream from Louisville was the follow my exchange (they were convinced Wagner got BS fouls on every play):

Cards fan #1: I want to see Wagner hit by a bus.

Cards fan #2: I bet the bus will get called for a foul.

Mo's verstality on offense. He can step out and make 3's (shooting over 40% for the season) but can score down the block. He also can blow by slower defender from the outside.

His struggles come when teams play small on Mo where his athleticism advantage is neutralized. This is where he needs to learn how to deal with smaller player and I hope he can stay one more year to figure out on how to bully smaller player to be more effective.

I dunno...  I think he did a pretty good job bullying the smaller players that switched onto him this afternoon.  He took it straight to the rim every time.  Every. Single. Time.  He beat Louisville at its own game!

That said, he's got lots of extra work he needs to learn .. He should stick around for next year.
