And just think we still got one on the bench who is just as good or maybe better than the current guys.

I am seeing Gabe getting more and more comfortable out there, starting to feel like he belongs. You can see this with how he is now looking to be active on the offensive end when he catches the ball. Cook needs to give up all his minutes unless someone gets in foul trouble, just don't see much of anything he is giving on either end of the court.

Just about to make this same post.  If Dan, Gabe and Darius had not stepped up tonight....it probably would have been way too close. Nice to know we have options.  However, FTs are a concern right now.

True. Hope he plays net year, we'll need him.

Also it's time to recognize that Osabuohien is not a transfer candidate.

Good analysis. Cook has had his moments in spot play this season, so I'll give him that. Gabe has huge potential though, hope he figures that out and dominates.

I noticed that as well about Gabe. Looks like he's got a burning desire to get better.

Taking nothing away from the freshman - who played great.

36 and 20 in a big road game in the last qtr of the season. Freshman class missing one of it's top 2 players still comes up huge. Great recruiting class and the coaching staff is bringing them around at money time. Screw the people that thinks this staff is incapable.

Fans want to see players play with passion.  Him and Darius both played with that freshman desire to prove their worth on the team. That's a very good trait to have.

I donít understand the hate this year for Thomas. He doesnít make dumb turnovers and he defends in the post if the other team has more than one big on the floor. He may not score a ton but he doesnít freeze the ball and he hustles.

Thompson played a damn good game. Barfiord played very well. Thomas played a fine game. Macon wasn't scoring at ease but took the ball to the basket and more importantly defered to the guys that were shooting well. I don't know what else you would have wanted from the seniors tonight

K.C. - you and I have a difference of opinion on how JB played tonight.  Where was the energy?  Hustle?  Macon's stroke was off but he did try to create.  His defense wasn't the best of his year.  JB and Macon can be special but they have to bring energy, hustle and play a little D.  The freshmen are showing the old guys how to play with passion and exhuberence.

Thomas has made some pretty good moves to the basket with the dribble. Just wished he did more of it. He would be a solid backup player for us if we had a more offensive option at the 4.

Macon was pressing a bit in the first half to make things happen but he settled down and was a creater in the 2nd half. I think Barford was off all night.

Chaney maybe, but I doubt Henderson makes a push. The three I mentioned will all have experience in the system and we know that goes a long with Anderson. Usually only exceptional freshmen like Portis and Gafford start unless you have seniors who arenít pulling weight (like when Mike started Hall over Macon or Bailey over Thomas/Cook). Next year might be different with such a young roster, and Iím not sure Bailey will even be here (just based on my opinion that MA is under-utilizing him and he might be unhappy with his reduced role).

I'm finally getting a chance to watch the second half.  Gabe looks much more comfortable.  Hall and him were huge gets.  I don't know if kids are getting better at basketball or what but I don't remember 3 stars coming in with this much potential.  Love to see the them coming along.  They're both 6-8 with tremendous athleticism and look comfortable on the perimeter or attacking the basket. I wish our sophomores would step up too.  We'll need them next season.

Gabe has been a nice addition to the team dynamics the past few games.  He demonstrated some serious immaturity at one point last night and maybe some insight as to why it took him until late to play during critical times of a game.  Could have gotten a T as easily as it was to read his lips saying something he shouldnít with kids watching.

Thomas always makes at least 2 really dumb fouls.  Typically he does have two-three really silly fouls as well

It was refreshing to see a PF(Gabe) be decisive on the offensive side of the court.  And he hustles his butt off on defense. 

I would like to see him take all of Cooks minutes.  Go 50/50 with him and DT on minutes.  Mix Hall in at the 3/4 depending on the flow of the game.

Hall will play 4 in occasional situations, but man at this point he's almost strictly wing and  thriving. Provides mismatches, rebounding, energy, and defense from that other wing which was needed.

If you don't see that CMA was setting Gabe up for the desire to transfer,  you are not very observant. He has done it time and time again, and the players have left. It's tough when you and everyone else knows you are better and you're riding the pine. I think CMA is feeling the heat to win , or Gabe would still be wasting away on the bench.

Maybe Mike thinks Gafford is leaving and he doesn't need Gabe's scholarship.

Geez lighten up Francis. Kids cuss, it's what they do. It just so happened the camera went on him as soon as he said it and there were only like 20 people in the stadium so it was loud. It was also a horrible call. Kid extended his arm and pushed Gabe down and he got called for a block. I'd be ticked too if I played great d and got pushed to the ground then got a foul called on me.
