1. Wow…I haven’t watched a ScoopTalk in a long time. You both do a great job. Really noticed the improvement in comfort level. You two work very well together.
    I didn’t hear any mention of Morgan…I sort of felt Morgan set the real tone in this game. Romeo played great. Robert Phinisee too…Big spark from Fitz with the triples. But Juwan was hauling down one-arm boards and exuding leadership/toughness. Really glad he stuck it out. We’d be lost without him.

  2. Nope. No complaints. I’ve become a fan. It’s not easy with so much hype surrounding Romeo, but he has embraced elevating himself as a leader by example. He has surprised me with his maturity. Many left our program without making that leap. A young team benefits immensely from that sort of leadership.

  3. There’s something very humbling about sticking in college long enough to see yourself in the mirror of your first steps onto campus/basketball court.
    Juwan will now be teacher and mentor. He’ll balance the need to temper his his young teammates lofty view of themselves without stealing confidence…He’ll find satisfaction beyond his game in the chances to develop and build a team.
    The opportunities in distractions away from your own individual pathways to greatness is the immeasurable gift of basketball in its fully nurtured and matured state. There will be as many lessons in the mirror for Juwan as those he’ll bring as example for his young teammates.
    I hope he is rewarded this season….I hope they rally around his leadership.

    1. Yeah, I posted that on a dying thread commenting that there has to be a metaphor in there somewhere.

      1. Crean was said to be calm during the whole affair: “No worries…I’m still actively pursuing this plane. Nice hops, an impressive wing span, and a lot of upside. High-flier …Has a good future at the next level. Great attitude. Willing to work the tail off. No, I wouldn’t say it’s a one-and-done….but there is always that possibility.”

  4. The last time Crean saw that much wet dirt fly, it was a clay pot fastball from Eli Holman.
    Where was God when I needed a better metaphor…? All I had was the Joey Glass letter. I thought that would suffice.
