    Well, I wish I could have seen the game because stats don't always tell the story based on what you see or vice versa. However, I'd say you are probably right since we had a whopping 13 Offensive Rebounds. Granted, we gave up 9 ourselves which is never a good number but yeah its hard to rebound defensively and get the ball in transition (which is where we want to be BTW) when the other team is shooting 53%.

    The question is not how many years. No, No, No. The question is how many MORE years since we just extended him you know.

    I don't profess to be the best basketball mind around. But it seems we have zero inside players and too many people rebound watching. I may be wrong but our whole game is predicated on hoping someone is open for a 3 pointer and praying it goes in.

    Exactly. Could not agree more.

    Trajan Wesley was a great spark, I hadn't seen him play before. 2-2 (3 pt), 5-7 (fg), and 2 steals in 20 mins. He didn't overshoot the 3 and took higher percentage shots. I'd like to see a couple of assists from, but he looks like he'll be a great addition. It kills me to see us shoot so many 3's when they aren't falling.

Is that not being done this year? I wouldn't understand not running that similar offense again. We have similar personnel.
    We are doing similar things. However Bartley could catch and shoot quickly off the pass. No one can do that on this squad. Recall Frank was player of year in Louisiana a season ago. Washington was also very good at facilitating the offense through the post as he has a high basketball knowledge base. He usually made the right play. While we have similar personnel, they don't have the overall talent of a year ago. The Julien and Gladney injuries are affecting depth and they need to find a way to overcome it.
