    My goodness, just stop.

    Sounds like he’s a superior player and the clips show that as well. It’ll be fun to watch him. One thing though, knowing that this kid is off scale in talent and performance, our guards need to watch and defend like crazy. Can he be locked down? I dunno but I hope so. With our newcomers, it’ll be fun to see how we defend!

    Well if this kid is as good as advertised, w/ this new era of almost anything goes player movement and open transferring, how long til he gets poached by a bigger school?

    You put it anywhere but a basketball board. You know the trouble the content would cause. You’ve contributed much in the past. Welcome back when you want. But it wasn’t about john. It’s wasn’t about basketball. It was about the topic which would lead to days of political fighting. Good luck!

    Watched his father do amazing things for the GS Warriors during the Hardaway - Mullins - Richmond era. Scrappy baller who was fun to watch.

    Dare him to shoot. That's the glaring weakness in his game, though he seems to be steadily improving on it.

    3PT% by year:

    2018-19 - 26.0% (2nd Lithuanian league)
    2019-20 - 31.8% (2nd Lithuanian league)
    2020-21 - 33.9% (1st Lithuanian league)

    Yup, as of now he looks more like a pass only point guard vs a pass first one.

    I suspect that he will play out his college career at St. Mary’s. He obviously believes that the Gaels offer something special in terms of player development. If he wanted to play for a more prominent program, I am sure that he could have landed plenty of offers from bigger schools. He may only play a year or two before moving to the professional ranks, but he’ll probably stay in Moraga for the duration of his college years.

    This is great news for the WCC.
    Gonzaga has defeated Baylor, Illinois, Virginia, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA, Arizona, Creighton, Oklahoma, Florida State, Texas A&M, Oregon, Iowa, West Virginia, Auburn, USC, and Washington over just the past three seasons.

    It would be a lot easier to guard SMC's pick and roll if the PG can't shoot.
