If they had a season of analytics to use, they probably could have but that’s not the format.  Lot of those guys played for Buzz and he used KenPom analytics quite a bit, so I’m sure they’re better players because of it

Two new additions today. Ohio State great Kaleb Wesson joins Golden Eagles TBT because Carmen's Crew isn't playing this year. Former MU & Iowa State player Deonte Burton is also on the roster. Both are significant additions.

According to the TBT website, this is the current roster:

Deonte Burton
Derrick Wilson
Elgin Cook
Jarvis Williams
Luke Fischer
Kaleb Wesson
Sacar Anim

Joe Chapman indicated DJO will also be back on Twitter yesterday. IMO that leaves Dwight Buycks and Jamil Wilson as the biggest question marks. If those guys both return, I think this team is probably the favorite to win it again.

Other than when we played Sullinger, is there much size in this tournament? I remember Davante not getting much playing time due to not being able to matchup with anyone on defense.

Jamil not playing hurts as he’s been our MVP. Hoping Deonte can help that. Plus, having DJO back should help the offense.
Title: Re: MU TBT?

Maybe Deonte and Vander can lessen the blow?  We have solid guard depth and versatility. I can't see Luke or Stone playing much.  Cook is an excellent TBT player and Jarvis has his moments.  If Deonte has his explosiveness you have to like our transition game.   We may go DB, VB, DJO, Deonte, and Cook for our death line-up.

Not to burst everyone's "Jamil" bubble, but last year he shot 32% overall and 30% from 3 in TBT.  Even in Puerto Rico, he shoots only 36% overall.  He's become a negative player in terms of overall contribution as he's aged. 

The missing link is Buycks.
Burton is a good addition and seems to shoot 3s much better these days. 
Vander will have to play excellent defense and take part of Buycks role getting to the hoop/creating his own shots.
Cook is really the heart of the team now.

snippets from the article on jsonline today:

Jamil Wilson and Maurice Acker have been on every Golden Eagles TBT team, while Darius Johnson-Odom is back after missing last year with an injury.

While Diener is the graybeard of the team, 24-year-old Sacar Anim is the youngest.

The Golden Eagles will open the tournament Sunday night in Dayton, Ohio, against a team that features Ohio University alumni.

But before that, there will be a scrimmage against the current MU squad that, if history is any indication, will include future TBT players.

Exactly.  Someone like Elgin Cook who played Euroleague level for the last 5 years is going to dominate even All Conference level 20 year old kids.  Coaching wont elevate guys who have dedicated their whole life to basketball, and nothing else, for the last 5 or more years

If you have any streaming service, you have access to "all the ESPNs." If you pay for ESPN+ or the "bundle," with Disney+ and Hulu, you get 'em too.

Even if you have cable and therefore only get ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, you probably still can get access to stream ESPN, either on a computer/tablet or via Roku or Amazon Fire or Chromecast. When you add the ESPN app, it will ask you to sign in through your "provider," aka your cable user name and password.

My guess is the amount of impressions the game winning shots get on social media makes paying $1K for a player to wear the shoes. At least that’s my thought on the theory. Not sure if that’s how it works out.

I totally get why Puma is doing this; the publicity is priceless. And I totally get why many players would be willing to switch into Pumas late in a game; a thousand bucks is a thousand bucks.

But it's not the best look in a team sport when players are scrambling to change shoes for personal gain even as their team is in the process of blowing almost all of what looked to be an insurmountable lead.

Here are the main questions I had as I watched MU's Elam Ending shyte-show last night: Are any players wearing the Pumas all game long? If not, why not? Are they that effen uncomfortable?

I don't have it recorded, but I wonder if they were deliberately kicking from someone who didn't to someone who did have the Puma shoes on.

Derrick played really well last year, and last night was a good start for him, too. This team has so many shooters, he doesn't need to shoot or even drive to help the team a lot with his defense and hustle. I think he only took one shot yesterday, and he swished a 3. Also made a few 3s last year IIRC. It's not surprising that he improved over the years since graduating.

During his time at Marquette, however, he didn't play on good-shooting teams. Defenders sagged 10 feet off Derrick and that hurt the offense. Buzz and Wojo hamstrung themselves by not recruiting anybody better to play PG during those years. It wasn't Derrick's fault that he only could do what he could do. Always seemed like a nice guy and great team player.

Yeah, but it was a wide open three.  They have won games over the years by hitting those and it might be a better shot than a contested two.

Can someone help me understand why Puma's marketing team would permit the rule where a player  (ie DJO) can change his shoes to Pumas in the last possession solely to win the $?  Why not require them to wear the shoes the entire game?  Its a complete disrespect to the sponsor / Puma in that the only way DJO would ever wear Puma is on the last possession and for $1k.  Hell I may wear Pumas for 5 minutes under those circumstances.

Because, did you notice how the announcers pointed out for 3 minutes straight that guys were changing into the PUMAs?  That is direct shots of the shoes, and guys strapping them on.

A part of me wanted to buy the shoes before I woke up and was like... oh this is great marketing.

You clearly don't pay attention to sports.  They are the main sponsor of Usain Bolt, the biggest track athlete of the last 20 years.  They sponsor a TON of high level soccer clubs and national teams.  They have a growing golf portfolio.  The sponsor Melo Ball and a couple other young NBA stars.  Its not like its LA Gear

Puma did practically fade away in the early 90's
It looks like they had revenue of approx $200-400 million yearly during the decade.

They're now up to about $4 - $6 billion annually.     

The aformentioned LA Gear took a chunk of that early 90's sales as they made it up to around $1 billion annually.
But as the days of glitter disappeared and the age of grunge was born, LA Gear was finished.

Although there still are shoes made under the LA Gear name.   Annual sales of around $5 million.

Rickie Fowler popularized Puma for a lot of kids. They loved the golfer who looked like a kid himself and who dressed in those bright-colored Puma clothes and shoes.

When I was a kid, Walt Frazier was the coolest athlete on the planet. He wore Puma and they named one of their shoes after him. I begged my parents to get me some Clydes and they finally did. One of my favorite birthday presents ever.

My parents were pretty anti-materialistic so I always had to deal with generic shoes while kids were wearing first generation Air Jordans. Until I had foot problems in high school, and my doctor recommended Nikes because they support the foot well and are cut more slim - so they were good for my long, skinny feet. I was never more happy. I certainly didn't get Jordans, but I at least got a more decent shoe to wear.

Nikes are still the only tennis shoe I will wear because it actually does fit my feet well.

Caught a lot of the game but not all.  What I did watch was a lot of mostly solid D but a completely stagnant offense.  I also saw DJO twice at the end of a quarter toss up a shot too early and give up a 3 on the other end.  Inexplicable really especially for our wise old team.  As others have said, I'm wondering who's back going forward.  Buzz guys are getting up there and an early exit doesn't leave a lot of optimism for next year.  But hey, that 2020 run for the championship was really a ton of fun and at least they did get one of those with these guys.

I see this has already said here multiple times
1. Offense disappeared in the 2nd quarter and only returned for the first half of the 4th.
2 Missed way too many shots they usually seem to make.
3  Was fun viewing summertime Marquette basketball.  Was hoping for another game or two.

There is a VERY small part of me that is happy for Dayton because they were robbed of the 2020 NCAAs and that team's hero Obi Toppin was in the house and helped corral 8,000 fans last night.  Maybe that was the moment they never had.

I will now shower to remove the stench of this Dayton softness.

Was discussing this in a group chat today. Buzz was the master of the upperclassmen fringe NBA guy. Jamil, DJO, Buycks were all cup of coffee guys that dominated TBT.

But looking ahead as this team is washed up, it's...Sacar, Fischer...maybe they can get Haanif and Sandy? Markus is probably the best prospect, but there isn't the wealth of options there once were.

It was a fun era, hopefully we'll have more to cheer for from the proper MU team, because TBT is entering the Wojo era.

Me too - was joking saying it to my buddies but then we started rattling off options and it’s very clear there is a significant gulf in available talent from the last few years compares to previous options.

Would like to see the team pick up JJJ . Lots of steals in this league which is one of his specialty's , can also shoot the 3 and drive. Has a nice pick and roll relationship with Luke. Pair him with Swaggy Du in the backcourt and you would have some good energy. 

Then get the rest of the 2016-17 team that is available. Rowsey was on this team for a few years but rarely played in games. We sure could have used him last night.

Rowsey rarely played because he can't defend a hat stand. There are three real keys to a successful TBT team. You need fringe NBA talent, you need guards that are willing defenders, and you need mobile bigs that can stretch the floor. Jamil, Buycks, DJO, McNeal, Juan, and Cook all checked some of those boxes.

Going forward, Markus is the only guy who looks like a surefire TBT star. Fringe NBA guy, great scorer, willing (not great, but willing) defender. Blue and Cook help, but they're on the wrong side of 30.

The rest of our alumni from 2014-21 just aren't great. Luke looked stuck in molasses and can't shoot. JJJ and Duane would be fine role-players, but like Sandy Cohen and Trent Lockett (on Gutter Cats currently) are TBT bench players, not stars. Similar to Sacar. Who else is close to the NBA? Maybe Carton or Justin Lewis (check back in 2 years), but guys like Koby, Katin, Theo, Cain, Bailey, and other recent grads are probably role-players at this level.

I hope they keep the team going, it's fun to watch, but 23 wins in 7 years is something we probably won't see again in this competition for a long time. Build something around Markus, like TMT and Jimmer, and hope for some development from the next few classes if they want to stay competitive. But if this year's games are any indicator, we were already a ways away and that was with Jamil, DJO, and Buycks, who I doubt we'll see again, and definitely not at all-TBT levels.

For as much love as Chapman gets, he’s been terrible. Can’t get the ball moving offensively and is playing guys like Mo and Jarvis who are awful. Also not sure we’ve really run any Jamil/Buycks pick and rolls that have dominated the TBT for years.

Agreed. And Bucky is pretty much made up of guys that are good college players but not good enough for the NBA. Might be a way to retool and give both fanbases a chance at a summer title. At least, after we all guzzle some Listerine to clear the little bit of throw up in all our collective mouths.

Considering Jamil already said he won't be back, DJO will be 33, Buycks will be 34, and Acker will be 36 when this next tips off, is it that perplexing? Even Cook and Blue are the wrong side of 30. Unless the will be reverse aging, a need to upgrade across the board seems logical.

I don't disagree with adding more youth. Not that the same squad will return, but I still think the same team plus 2-3 swapped players would be very competitive next year. Rebounding is definitely a need. I'm wondering if Jamil's comment was only because he's done and some of the other core players may return (Cook, DJO, Buycks, Anim, Fischer, Blue). Burton would have helped this year.

As much as I love these guys, it's hard to be Acker and a 5'7" 1 guard who's starting to lose a step. Pretty much everyone on the squad felt like they were a half-step slow. Time comes for us all.

Not going to lie, the well needs to be basically filled with the fringe NBA guys, and we haven't been churning a lot of them out of late. Plus between schedules and risk, a couple things have to break the right way for the international guys to come play. Is it worth the risk/does the schedule work for Markus to come hoop for the TBT when he's under contract in Europe? It's not an easy problem to solve.

JJJ would be an excellent addition to the team . Can shoot it, can drive it , has good passing especially in pick and roll , likes to go for steals which is big in TBT

I really look forward to the tbt years with wojos guys. I really want to relive those 7 years of memories like I do with Diener.
