Major #update in mubb instagram content. Most of the team followed up Oso and posted pics of the season on their stories. A lot of a pic of Michael Kennedy holding the Big East trophy, the Oso confetti shot, and different Zach Wrightsil ones.

My #analysis is that the team all got together as a group for the first time after the loss to have some emotional conversations and celebrate their accomplishments one last time. And now they’re gearing up to start the offseason work needed to handle some unfinished business next year. 💼 🔜

Maybe that suitcase just means Maui can’t come soon enough aina?

Absolutely. Still frequent this board since it’s a great place to find info on my alma mater. But when especially dumb chit is said, I’m compelled to chime in.

Everything kids post today has meaning. Everything.

Whether Oso goes pro or not remains to be seen, but they all know he's on the fringe. No secret.

It's a perfect example of why this board needs a "like" button or upvote function.

If it makes me literally laugh out loud at work, it must be acknowledged somehow for posterity sake.

If no one other than Ellis transfers, the team roster will look essentially the same as this past season with the addition of the three freshmen. The starting lineup will remain the same, and the style of play will be unchanged. So, given that context, what has to happen for the team to be better and have a better chance at even more post-season success?

1. Oso, Gold, and Ross all have to get physically stronger.
2. Oso has to develop a 12- 15 ft shot so defenses cannot sag off of him.
3. Joplin and Omax both have to improve their ball handling.
4. Gold has to get confident in his outside shooting.
5. Stevie has to get confident in his shooting so he can consistently take the wide open 3 shot.
6. Itejerre has to do whatever necessary to be able to give Oso some relief instead of relying on Gold to do it.
7. Sean Jones needs to develop his outside shot so he has a way to score when in the game.

Think that's asking for a lot? I don't. Look at the progress Stevie, Kam, Tyler, and Oso made in just one year.

Exactly, every kid coming back next year has room for improvement.  Also, they all can get stronger which they happen.

The Athletic is the 1st real trusted site that I've seen have OMax getting drafted.

They have him at 49th as of today surrounded by 3 Creighton guys.

Kalkbrenner at 48, Kaluma at 50, Scheierman at 58.

No sign of Oso.

It will be.  We’ll probably have a predictions thread at the start of the year.  We can take a look at the end of the year to see what teams over and under performed on the Marquette schedule

200 minutes (per team) available in a College Basketball game.

2022-2023 Minutes Distribution (Rounded to Nearest Whole Number)

Kolek- 32
Ighodaro- 31
Kam- 30
OMax- 29
Stevie- 23
Joplin- 19
Ross- 16
Jones- 12
Gold- 8

That is 200 minutes. 

If the roster stays in tact Lowery would almost certainly be a redshirt candidate because there is already 0 minutes available based on the numbers above and the guard room is even more packed. 

Tre Norman is going to find a way to get Ross-like minutes from this season if not more.  That's an additional 16+ minutes that aren't available right now.

Even if OMax (the most likely pro candidate) leaves for professional opportunities, that doesn't solve the guard logjam and in turn makes the front court even thinner.

After analyzing the roster and numbers from last year it is pretty clear it is going to be a hectic few months in Shaka's office.

Exciting times for Marquette fans though with so many talented options.  Not every school has this much talent available.

Until Shaka wakes up and plays Gold all 200 minutes, he's on the hot seat.

Playing time will work itself out.  Injuries happen, so it's good to have as many good players as possible.  More depth also means less worrying about foul trouble.  Maybe the defense turns the aggressiveness up a notch this year.

Competition for minutes will be fierce, which will push everyone to work super hard.  The cream will rise to the top. If one or two players surpass expectations,
Marquette will be even more dangerous. It'll be fun to watch it all play out.

Let the record show that for the past decade we have averaged MORE than 200 minutes per game.
Thanks for ruining summer, Canada.

The sum of mpg of all your players will always be greater than 200. Even in a season where you play no overtime games.
