Shooter

The bar keeps going higher in my book. Muggs asked me the other day what I thought the ceiling was for this year and still holding out for a few more games. That said, winning a game in March is checking a box and not the goal anymore. The next few games are extremely big, and not hyperbole big. My hope is the remaining mopes will have changed their mind or checked out on posting on scoop.

Agreed on the upcoming games.  Should be fun. 

As Shaka keeps saying, this team should only get better.  That is a very pleasant thought going forward.  I have no reason to doubt him.

Kolek.

1st player in the last 30 years of Big East play to have 15 Assists and 0 TOs.  Easy.

Tyler, and after today's masterpiece I ran some numbers.

He's at 7.94 apg. If he plays in 32 games (the minimum with a BET game) he's on pace to become only the second Marquette player to crack 250 assists in a season (254 pace).

If Marquette makes the NCAA tournament and manages to win a game there and at MSG, TK is on pace to break Tony Miller's 274 single season record.

If Tyler stays two more years and Marquette averages 36 games per year while maintaining that 7.94 average, he would shatter Miller's career record of 956 (that pace would be 1,045).

If TK did hit 1,045 here, he would be at 1,095 for his career thanks to 50 assists at GMU. That would break Bobby Hurley's NCAA record of 1,076.

I once thought of Miller's assist record as unbreakable, like McIlvaine's blocks. TK has changed that thinking.

A record once thought to be untouchable. thanks Brew for the info.

Muggsy

I am sure he is going to get bigger and stronger, but hard to tell how much muscle he puts on. Of all of the things I have liked about this season, Gold is high on my list for the future. My guess is we are going to see more and more of him the rest of the way.

So Shaka has struck Gold down under.

Yes , but Hurley set his record over 4 years not 5.

Sure, but if Tyler improves, say he gets to 9 apg next year and 10 in 2024-25, and Marquette plays 37 & 38 games instead, his Marquette numbers could blow Hurley away and his 50 at GMU would be incidental.

The evolution of Scoop’s perception of the freshmen has been interesting.

Before the season, just about all talk was focused on Sean Jones, the quickest guy Shaka’s ever coached. It was only a matter of time before he took Stevie’s spot.

Then Ross had a nice game against the Sisters of the Poor, and folks were over the moon about him.

Now Gold is gonna be best of ‘em all. And he might be … or Ross
might be … or Jones might be.

As many have said, each brings something to the party, and they all contributed in the second half today.

Shaka’s done a nice job bringing them along, that’s for sure.

I'd like to hear the recruiting story on Kolek - how Shaka got clued in on him.  As I recall the day he signed with MU, Shaka's Instagram posted a picture of Diener.

Yes, some have had fun with the "he reminds me of Diener" schtick, but, Tyler's F*ck 'em quote was Diener energy all the way, and Tyler IMO is a better passer than Travis.  Tyler of course is nowhere near the shooter Travis was, but Tyler is more physical and a better defender.

If* Tyler can keep improving his perimeter shot, which I believe he will solely due to his insane work ethic, we very well may see a Diener-esque campaign next season. 

Enjoy it Scoopers because Tyler's passing is incredibly special/elite, the likes of which we likely won't see for decades.

He's a wonderful passer and one of our two MVPs, and I'm happy he has worked his rear off to become a fine PG for Marquette ... but he'll remind me of Travis Diener when he hits huge shots and when he wins NCAA tournament games.

Some forget that Wade was bad in our first 2003 NCAAT game and that it was Diener who saved the team ... and then saved us again (along with Novak) in the next round against Mizzou. Diener was 10-17 from 3 in those two games, and we needed every effen one of those 3s. Then, he had 15 assists as we won our next two tourney games to get to the Final Four.

No Marquette player since then has reminded me of Travis Diener. It would be abso-freakin'-lutely wonderful if Kolek ever does.

My understanding is that Coach Hatt was the link to TyKo. He's a New England native and before joining Shaka's staff at VCU he worked at Vermont Academy. I imagine he was a familiar with Kolek's AAU program. He also wasn't much of a secret, he was A10 freshman of the year. IIRC, Providence, UConn, UVA and others were all on him too. Definitely didn't expect him to become what he is based on his freshman season at George Mason.
