DJ will see the court, but the videos probably scared away Mane

Clearly, they red shirted Dexter to keep him from showing up Markus.

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Or, in the case of St. Johns, just keeping up.



That Dexter's a bad...
Shut your mouth!
But, I'm talkin' about Dexter.

Spencer Dinwiddie just tested positive. Hopefully Dexter didn’t get it while playing with him.

Does anyone know I can change how I voted in the predictions of where MU finishes in the Big East with DJ poll?
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

It's not often we see current MU players take on current NBA players, so don't mind me, just climbing on the Dex hype train after seeing him take Donovan Mitchell off the dribble.

You are correct it does not happen often. Not to compare in any way. But unheralded at the time, sit out Marquette Freshman Dwyane Wade beat Milwaukee Bucks All Star Ray Allen in one on one. Am told Ray Allen said “Get this kid away from me”

Man, that would be awesome if he could an NBA prospect.  MU's future will be significantly better.

Love the the smooth criminal at the end.  Hoping Akanno breaks out this year.  Will be fun to watch.

I had no idea Dexter was that strong. He is built. Did that happen last year. I thought he was a lot skinnier than that.  I want on this bandwagon. However, if he really is the stud he looks like in this video why redshirt him?

I like everyone else have no idea how good he really is. But even if this video hype is leaning more towards "real" I don't think it's that weird he redshirted.

We had Markus who was going to get his his PT, his touches, his shots. We had Koby who coming into the year had a ton of hype(and even still got loads of PT), we had 5th year senior Sacar who was going to be a main piece regardless.

Then there were still guys like Greg and Symir in the backcourt and Cain on the wings. Two guys that are older and a guy who reclassified for a reason.

I'm not looking too much into the redshirt.

Let's hope the video is pretty accurate.

Oh god. The hype train is leaving the station. And I bought a sleeper car ticket. ALL IN.

Really excited to see that he's been putting in a ton of work and making the redshirt year count. I know kids want to start out of the gate, but Wojo is making the RS year look palatable if Dex comes in and makes a Sacar-esque impact. Heck, by soph year he could be exceeding that.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Yeah I don't think he'll be an All Conference player next year, but I do think this is showing he has a skillset that I honestly didn't think he'd have at all in his time at Marquette, let alone by the first season he's going to play.  I thought he'd be a defense first big, strong guard who could slash a little bit in the half court and hopefully by his senior year he could be a junior year version of Sacar.  I now think he could be a junior year version of Sacar as a freshman.  But maybe it'll take more time.

Compared to the God awful shot that Koby has, it is nice to see great looking form on the outside perimeter.  He looks to me like the starting small forward next
year or even better then the incumbent Koby.  All I know, it is exciting to have 5 new players next year that look on paper that can all play and be successful.  That is
if there is a next year,  I can see what the Big Ten did today, and play 20 conference games and that is it.  Maybe the early tournaments can be saved as the kids
could be in a bubble.  Going to hard for the traveling buy games for the lower 50 teams in the NCAA.  Going to really hurt those programs.

I think it’s more that the rando 3 star worked out with an NBA HOFer/2 time MVP, then played pickup with a bunch of NBAers and fit right in, then played pickup with at least one Kentucky commit and fit right in, and has quality NBA players Tweeting about him.

I would say that any hoopster can watch those videos and realize MU has gotten a steal, thank you D Wade for seeing real talent.   One thing for sure he is more
athletic then Sacar and even Howard was.   Having Carton and Dex, your going to see some crazy dunks next year.  If Cain or Oso, can not handle the wing, I see
lots of playing time for a 3 guard line-up.

I hafta admit that I'm falling for the Dex hype!

I so want there to be a season for obvious reasons (and a multitude of them), but right near the top of the list is I want to see our 3D Attack: Dex, DJ and Dawson!
I'll be right eventually.

Does Wade have a connection to Akanno?
