    you know, he did that this summer too. I think the difference is he's developing belief that his stuff works at this level, like, right before our eyes the last 20 minutes

    Yes. And I'm expecting Florida to knock off Duke.

    Rui’s biggest challenge now is confidence. The little Goodman snippet was informative along those lines.

    No way. The whole tourney was a set up for Dook and NC to be affirmed as the best in the world. Not the cleanest, however.

    From court side he is still mechanical in understanding what to take. He had several looks that could have resulted in dunk or layup but you could almost feel his mechanical thought process and immediately was looking for a spot up shooter

    But that will slowly dissolve

    Duke v Florida will be a track meet, but Duke doesn’t have the defensive chops to keep up.

    beginning to look like it Former. Our Zags are looking better and better. When it comes to hard fought and entertaining games in PK80, nothing comes close. Became two heavyweights just going at it. FF game in my view. We may see these two again.

    wish I could vehemently disagree with you. Zags will need to answer the run(s) when it comes, keep rebounding and scoring

    For those that give Bilas a hard time, he was gushing our praises throughout the 1st half. When told that we were picked 2nd in the WCC, he said that's like picking Kansas 2nd in the Big 12 and there's no way SMC is better than us.

    yep, developing belief in his reads, what he sees, and that he can handle the responsibility...at least that what it looks like to me...not deferring when it's on for him. when it's on and he makes the move he's sick unstoppable, the toolbox exists

    I just rewound it, that wasn't the question at all. Goodman said that Bilas said there's gonna be a sitcom called Rui and Fewie and Few said, "uh....I dunno what to say about that". I twas pretty funny.

    Rui off the pick n roll is interesting.

    Rui has a 7'2" wingspan, Fwiw.

    Take advantage
