Re: Dean gets his number retired

I didn’t think Barry could make the NBA because of his size and inconsistent shooting. After watching him for four years, I never would have thought him capable of shooting around 40% from the NBA line. But if he can do that consistently, and with the current trend toward “small ball”, I believe he...

Re: Dean gets his number retired

Latest Barry Brown game. Made 7 threes. Now shooting 40% from three on the year on 170 attempts or so. (30) more than any year at KSU. https://twitter.com/i/status/1231776584660639745 Good for Barry. There may be room for him in the NBA. Here's hoping. I didn’t think Barry could make the NBA becaus...

Re: Mercury Article on Kaosi Eseagu

Can he catch and make good decisions? One of the most important things for a big, and something often missing, is good hands and then just doing the right thing with the ball.

Re: May be the worst team in over 70 years.

We just came off what was arguably our best back to back years in modern history. Elite 8 followed by Conference title even with the bad luck of Dean’s foot is extremely rare stuff for KState - and without a whiff of scandal. It makes this year all the more disappointing. But this is also the way it...

Re: Next Season - Thoughts?

We will have enough talent to be middle of the pack. The question for me is leadership. Our young guys appear to be talented. Are they winners?

Re: TT Game Thread and Notes

Behind everything, behind every loss, is the same unchanging fact - we can’t shoot. We went to Lubbock, which is presently a good home court advantage, and lost by 7. Why? They outscored us by 12 from 3 despite talking only 4 more than us and outscored us by 3 from the free throw line despite taking...

logical landing spot, texas?
Logical landing spot? - he plants his 67 yr old self on a beautiful beach somewhere, counts the money he just took from the Cavs (he’s going to get a nice portion of the 5 year contract he signed), and rejoices he’s not in Cleveland or Ann Arbor in the winter.

Re: TCU Game Notes and Thread

How completely must we be outplaying them in every other area to be only down 2 while getting out scored by 27 from the 3-point line?

Re: May be the worst team in over 70 years.

The old Big 12 was truly terrible at the bottom back then. Baylor, A&M, Colorado, Nebraska, Tech, ISU - all were usually bad, and often really bad. This team would still not be good, but we’d easily win 5 or 6 Conference games against those teams.

Re: OSU Game Preview and Thread

We got good shots all night. This team just can’t shoot.

Our experienced guys played OK (not great, but OK), but the 3 Freshmen have hit the wall and we got nothing from them.
