    Was it Kyky who had the highest vertical jump?

    It’s hard NOT to start getting excited! Thanks for the recap.

    I don’t care if there is no defense, shooting 68% from 3 point land is impressive! Can’t wait to see ALL these guys!

    Agree - I hope he has a role, otherwise, not sure why he stayed. I think he can contribute if used correctly. I honestly don't care if he can't guard anyone - he can be a spark plug off the bench in spurts.

    Travis must be a smooth talker… but yea this makes no sense. Guess we will see when the season starts. Injuries happen but it looks like he will struggle to see the floor a lot based on what we know.

    This is probably true given the history, but all we “know” now comes from the most hyperbolic poster ever to exist.

    My random takes from attending MM (and I left two minutes early):
    • New scoreboard is awesome.
    • I’m aware he was on crutches but they didn’t even introduce Freemantle.
    • No one sitting in the student section (aside from the band).
    • Miles, during warmups, looked incredible. Quick off his feet with great elevation and ATTACKS the rim.
    • Miles, during the scrimmage, looks like he needs some more time. Not very skilled in the post and didn’t finish on a few opportunities around the rim.
    Showed nice touch from 10’ but seemed to get pushed around a bit. Still thin in the upper body.
    • Edwards didn’t show me much if anything at all.
    • Nunge seemed to move well during warmups and is a BIG body.
    • I know some will disagree (in favor of Scruggs) but I think Johnson is the best player on the floor.
    • I was hoping to see Odom take a 3 but he didn’t. Curious if he has been able to transform his shot.

    What’s wrong with Odom’s shot? :)

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

    I think the agreement though is that he’s quick off his feet.

    Honestly, I think we all know that the offense isn't going to run through the bigs, but the bigs have to be some type of threat in the post on the offensive end. I don't think we will see alot of scoring from Miles on post-ups and post moves - he's in there to dunk, block shots, get rebounds, and be a menace for the opposing offense.

    I think Nunge, Free and Stanley are capable of getting post buckets. I really hope the Freemantle standing on the 3 point line experiment has ended, unless he's pulling out the opposing big man.
