Re: Player Pipeline

Unless Barcello comes back we're going to struggle at PG again. Barcello and Avarette handle duties. There isn't that third guy getting a few minutes here and there. I don't see Harding running point his ball handling and passing just isn't there. Same with Johnson and Knell. So either Pope knows so...

Re: Post Season

If we can get a 6th seed that would be great. I don't see us getting higher than a 6 unless we beat Gonzaga in the WCC finals.

Post Season

Unless the wheels completely come off, it looks like we are tourney bound. Even if we lose against SMC on Sat and lose the first game of the WCC tournament we'd still be a bubble team. But I don't see us losing on Sat and something tells me after a first round exist last year Pope is going to have t...

Re: Don't look now,

Harward is a beast. If we didn't have Haarms, we would be plenty happy with Harward at center. Kolby Lee has all but disappeared. Feel bad for the guy, but what a luxury we have right now. We have three solid centers. Harward, I suspect, will start next season. Between Baxter, Lee, and Harward, we'l...

Re: WCC schedule change

Glad we get a few more games and glad we get to finish at home. Both those games are winnable.

Was fun watching the team roll again Pacific and LMU this week. We're looking good. As much as I feel for Lee having to sit, having George and Lonher start is much better rotation.

Looking for a non-conference game,
There has to be someone out there willing to play. Some Q2 team at least.

Re: What's the Chance?

I suppose there is a chance Barcello and Averette stay another year. If there is a coach that could convince them it would be Pope. I can see Barcello playing in Europe. I am not sure about Averette. I give the likelihood of them staying another year about a 30% chance. Haarms is a better player tha...

Re: Gonzaga Game

This team seems jittery. I wonder how much that has to do with so many new players and little time to practice before the season started because of COVID. Timing seems off on plays. They seem to hesitate a bit. Chemistry isn't as crisp as we've seen with other teams. I also think we were really spoi...

Re: Gonzaga Game

6 min left and we have 17 turnovers.

Pope needs to spend the off season getting a solid PG, a couple shooters, and preaching ball security. For how much this team turns the ball over it's amazing we are doing as well as we are this season.

Gonzaga Game

We keep getting close and turning the ball over. This team plays tough but so sloppy.

We get stops and then run down the floor to either turn the ball over or take a bad shot.
