    I am excited about the transfers as well. There is one thing I want to watch in particular. I caught a little bit of the South Carolina vs Clemson game the other night and was watching Hasanni Gravett play. Of course we have Stroman who transferred from South Carolina. In a roundabout way we "traded" Point Guards with the gamecocks, I want to see how that plays out for both teams.

    With UGA being an anomaly, the ability to hit the three ball this year makes this team successful. The three opens up so many other opportunities and we don't go have to our big man every series.

    We did not have a consistent 3 ball person the past few years, which is why people had our number going down the stretch the past two years.

    The best, and possibly hardest move made in the off season was Register. We all wanted the local guy to be great, myself included. His transferring out was the best thing for our program and for Marlin. The kid just lost his mojo somewhere along the line and never got it back. LSU-A seems to be a better setting for him, a few good nights have gone his way.

    Now some of the transfers have been there multiple years and are listed in two different season. I did not have the time to see who was there multiple years.

    To answer your question, I want him to play just about every game albeit the time he plays will depend on the opponent. Exactly how much time has he had to develop? Sometimes guys just need some game time to get comfortable and develop via playing good competition. I think he can be a shot blocker of some sort and rebounder and if nothing else, a shot changer in the lane. As a matter of fact, he got hurt in the UNO game while blocking a shot.

    My comment had to do with no matter what you teach and no matter how hard a player works at their game, you can't teach 7" tall and a player that big you should give every opportunity to play and develop. Now, that shouldn't come at the expense of chemistry and if the guys getting the bulk of the minutes at this point have developed a nice chemistry with one another, you have to be careful how much you insert him into that mix.

    Watched UCF/TooLame last night. UCF had a 7'6" player, tallest in NCAA,NBA, who was an absolute stiff. He was out quicked, and outplayed by people he had ten inch advantage on. You can't teach height, but God given quickness and slowness also cannot be thought.

    According to CajunMike, TooLame who the NOLA media claims should be the 2nd best in the state stands 3/10.

    Of course not. But you give that player EVERY opportunity to help your club and each game likely has a time that he can help you, especially on a team that averages about 6'7" on its front line.

    To me the dynamics of basketball as a whole are changing. You don't see every team build around a big centerpiece. There were days when every team from biddy ball to NBA built teams around a Center. Now-a-days you see long, athletic "tweeners" filling out the rosters....and those rosters are better and more versatile to me. The slow, still 7-footers are a thing of the past. It's great to find one that can actually move, but the others just make your team more one dimensional, lacking transition, speed, etc.

    And the really good athletic big men will very rarely find their way here. If Shawn wasn't from Morgan city he would haven't been here.

    Miller and Washington can't play the whole game. Someone has to sub for them. That is Plaisance occasionally. I have noticed that they are playing Jekarius Davis more at the 4 spot. I bet that continues as he is strong enough to occasionally play inside.

    Jeff Duncan is a TP sports writer. He wrote an article after Dunleavy was hired to be the Green Wave coach. In that article, he stated the hire should make the Green Wave the state's No. 2 basketball program. People at UNO and McNeese don't believe it as they defeated the Wave earlier. McNeese win had to hurt as they paid the Cowboys in what they thought was a rent a win. Those results tell me they will continue to refuse our home and home offer.

    We don't need to drag down our RPI by playing the Lamers. We already play enough caller dwellers.

    I'm fine with him spelling Miller, Washington and others. I'm not fine with him playing instead of a better player to gain game experience. That's my view on every spot.

    Stalcup started that first game of the year against Minnesota. The coaches must have seen something preseason to make that call, it just hasn't translated into the games. He is playing D1 ball for the 1st time, maybe he can come around to the speed of the game by the end of the year.

    Only issue I disagree with you there is in a situation when the game is out of reach one way or the other. In those instances, bench guys should play. When the game is on the line and they don't need a blow you are correct in that Miller and Washington should play ahead of Plaisance. Foul trouble of course can change things. Note that Miller is often limited in his minutes due to knee issues.

    Interesting note about Pepperdine? Last night they lost on the road to No. 7 Gonzaga 92/62 a similar score to our 90/64 victory. That is a twenty six point win vs a thirty point win. Pepperdine held in the sixties in both cases and allowing ninety or more in both cases.

    Note Pepperdine was only down 7 at half in the Gonzaga game. Conference play is different of course so they were likely prepared well. Talent differences showed up in 2nd half obviously. In another game involving a former opponent, Georgia won at Auburn by 12. Bulldogs may surprise some in SEC this year

    Even at that, he came by way of Mississippi State.
