    Yeah.....I’m not ready to say he’ll be our leading scorer but I think he contributes right away.

    Payne to Illinois. Could be good situation for him. They’re coming off a good season but could lose 6 of their top 8 players in terms of scoring and minutes played so they may need immediate help. One challenge for him has to do with their current center Kofi Cockburn......rumor has it the 6’11 290 pounder may declare for the draft. If he returns Payne either backs him up or looks to move to the 4. Not sure how that will sit with him as he obviously wants to start. Their might be some intel that Kofi will leave which opens up a spot for Payne as they rebuild their lineup. We have a South Florida player that spent 4 years there and calls it the best time of his life. Could set up nice for Payne.

        Something of additional interest next year = checking on our many transfers to see how they're "developing" anew.
        Also, comparing our new-gators to the gone-gators they supposedly replaced.

          Antoine basically missed the two years. Only played 26 games total. 10 this year and 16 last year

          Need to look at how he scores and plays, what his shot looks like, how he scores when contested etc. Not just the size he is playing. The same thing I saw in Mann I see in him. Kowacie is more aggressive though, which could clash with White lol. The one on one skills are top notch and when you can hit turnarounds on a triple team, you can score

            Have any of the transfers that MW has lost really do anything of note anywhere else?? Nembhard went to Gonzaga and is in the Final 4 but he has accepted his role as a role player and the 5th or 6th option on the team. His numbers have dropped drastically and his NBA hope is all but gone now.

            Scottie Lewis averaged 8.5 a game as a freshman. I'll do an avatar bet that says reeves doesn't average more as freshman.

            A contested shot against a 5-10 highschool guard does not translate against a 6-6 d1 wing.

            Pretty disparate views. I think I’m with T. I see superior skill and size at that level, but not the hyper athleticism/explosiveness that immediately translates. But, I also understand that explosiveness was what made Walker and Lewis stand out, so I’ll take the skills.

              Nobody else has done much. While Nembhard hasn’t put up big numbers he is contributing on a top ranked team. He may not be an NBA player but at the very least he will have a long career overseas. He could eventually get to the league or at least get a decent opportunity because he has pretty good court vision and IQ. Decent with both hands on the dribble and pass. His issue is lack of elite speed and not a consistent shooter.

                Scoring in that range would be acceptable and productive. I’m more comfortable stating that he will be a more complete player. He just seems to have some skill development that Walker and Lewis didn’t. Now there were times Lewis played some very good defense and others when he didn’t. I really have no idea what Reeves commitment to defense is. He certainly has all the intangibles to be an elite defender but I have to see it first.

                Whatever high school deficits Reeves arrives with, he will have to depend on Mike White's program to get him better?? He'll transfer out.

                  He’s getting only 2-3 less minutes per game, a 10% better shooting percentage, similar rebounds and 2 less points per game than at Florida.

                  All while playing with great coaching and talent around him IN THE FINAL FOUR. Over years of bad takes, this is a top five highlight of dumb statements.

                    yeah he is GREAT as a role player but not as THE MAN like at UF. Coaching 1000 times better under Mark Few even though its VERY surprising that Few doesn't have at least 2 NCs with all his great coaching and all the talent they have had there in Gonzaga the last 22 years. Great wins, but underwhelming in the NCAAT yearly until this year.

                      Nembhard - 8 assists and 11 points in an all-time classic Final Four game. Yeah, we didn't want him anyways. Just a role player I guess....

                        Will Nembhard be back next year to spearhead another NC run? Then he might be more crucially relied upon. He stays on auto-pilot slow-glide while his teammates zoom around like fighter jets. Nembhard was needed tonight. Only came out when he got dinged up for a while.

                        Just watched the game. Nembie made a damn fine decision to transfer. Prolly gonna win a nattie and then go get paid to play somewhere overseas.

                        He hit a huge clutch 3 down the stretch.
