Ben is a euro-big.  Or a Henry Ellenson big.   There are different ways to be 6'11 240.   And looking at that freshmen video, it is going to be OK.   Patience.

We need more Caedin. He's flown under the radar from a highlight perspective for a year now.

Wrong about that one. He might be an Ellenson big, but not Euro big. No where the ball handling and passing skills of a Euro big.

You watch that sequence with Josh vs. Kam and you have to wonder why he generated no interest.

Probably because its just a few seconds on a highlight tape.

Would be totally cool with Ben averaging a double-double, 2 assists and a block and a half a game. Let him be an Ellenson big all he wants.

I am enjoying the aggressiveness and athleticism being highlighted in these clips.

So much for the image of a kinder, gentler Tower.  :)

Yeah, it's great to see the guys show what they can do. I want to see the team be able to get into our opponents' faces more often this season. Like Stevie taking out that smart ass Xavier player in Milwaukee. I forgot his name, but Stevie's "you're not going anywhere" when he pinned the guy against the line at the end of the game was great!

Souley Boum.    And I missed the full court pressure last season.

Thanks Tower. I forget a lot of things lately. I'm trying to remember what I had for breakfast. Not sure.  :)

It's so much fun to watch Shaka build this team and the players to build themselves (with Shaka's guidance) as young men. There is not so much as a hint of "me me me" with these guys. Love it!

I still remember that first open practice when Darryl Morsell was dogging the young guys. You can see all the things Morsell was doing reflected in this team now. All the habits and tendencies drilled into them that first year paying off in the years that followed. Morsell (and Kuath) were incredibly underrated recruits in terms of their long-term impact on the program.

Basically he is a small forward that will have to play center! Oso was twice as quick as well, it will interesting how the offense is run this year because one thing Oso brought to the table were easy at the rim baskets.  Gold barely did pick and roll.

I've never heard of a 6'11" small forward.

Brad Sellers.  Dirk.   Danny Manning (with good knees).  Giannis.

To name a few. How about KD.
