He's a ghost in the OK state box score. It's like he doesn't even play there.

Ugh, wrong O State school. Silly me. Would think I remember Oregon State since they had that crazy run in the tournament last year.

Kentucky was worse than Wojo's Marquette last year.

Theo thing is weird because he thought there would be money for him in Europe that wasn't there (partly pandemic driven). So he'll get an above average NIL stake from Duke, raise his profile, and hope to have a good season in a system he knows. His hope is probably to out play Mark Williams, thought I doubt it happens.

Garcia is the weirder one to me, not that he left, but that he chose UNC. UNC kinda sucks. 84-34 and now 51 in Ken pom since 2019. Brady Manek is easily a player that can play him off the court if he gets hot. Armando Bacots gotten off to a great start. In a small 3 game sample size but Garcia has the worst offensive rating in the rotation, and I know from the eye test all last season hes better on offense than on defense. He also really doesnt fit an uptempo style that he has at UNC right now, nor the style he would have had to play at MU. Unless he gets wet as a trailing big man from 3,I really dont see his role to becoming a 2022 NBA pick, which had to have been the goal. I guess at least he isnt out recruited for next year, and he'll get to play some 5 his Jr year? I guess I'm surprised he didn't go become the face of MN or go to a school that "needed" him to be the face of the front court.

Too lazy to look up when he committed to UNC vs. when Manek committed, but he will really struggle to get into rhythm playing with Manek and Bacot. Last season, Walker Kessler (top 20 recruit) was the odd man out of the UNC big rotation. Maybe the same with Dawson this year? He's not going to beat out Bacot and I think he'd struggle playing with Manek.

I believe he was in the 40s when he reclassified. For some reason 41 is stuck in my head, but that might be wrong.

I don't think the Theo thing is weird at all.  He gets a chance for a national championship and as you said raise his profile for a better deal in Europe. 

Not to mention a Masters Degree from Duke.
Have some patience, FFS.

Im pretty sure Symir and Dawson were pretty similarly rated in that 2020 class before Symir reclassed.  So somewhere around 40 sounds right.

Wish he has another season to transfer back 😂
I’m sure most of us are surprised that he’s doing THAT well, but not surprised he’s taken a huge step up.

Hope he keeps it up and gets to play in the association, I can see it.

Very surprising Greg stayed and he left, they are very close as most here know.

Also, not to disparage Olivier but yes he would have taken most of OMax minutes and woulda made this team a legit sweet 16 team, but hindsight is dangerous. 

Jamal is also an awesome dude and great representative for MU, love to see it

Koby McEwen 30 pts 5 reb tonight for 4-0 Weber State.

Averaging over 20ppg on the young season shooting over 60% from 3.

Nice start for him and Weber State!

Something about playing for a Utah school gets his game revving.

Some kids really don't work well with certain coaches and systems. I don't think Cain and McEwen were good matches for Wojo and his system.

I actually think both would have thrived in Shaka's system, but also understand the desire/need to start fresh (for everyone involved).

Has much as Koby drove me nuts during his time here. I do think he woulda fit really well with what Shaka wants to do.

Glad with what we got though

Looked good on O. Definitely gave up some easy looks at the end

Garcia just had 26 and 8 against #6 Purdue. Nice outing, still rather have JLew though.

Jose would have been a poor, poor fit with Shaka.

But I think he was better than he showed here last year.  He had Covid and was clearly out of shape.

I'm really happy for Jamal. It's a shame he wasn't able to build the confidence to do this here.
