    The boys barely pulled it off. Chet didn't have his "best" game. Ivey and Lofton for the U.S. played well. Good to get the win against a good French team.

    Victor. He’ll get his looks. 17 years old? All that skill? Glad the US win. Chet did well . Just not his best game. We have a younger team upcoming. We need to get the youngins back and begin the moulding of a team.

    Chet uses his length very well defensively. He can sag off a player into a help position but his length compensates for the distance. He effectively plays help and stays on his man simultaneously.

    Couple things from this tournament that will apply for Chet as a Zag:

    Just really hard to score on him, even if he doesn’t block the shot. Forced a bunch of hurried attempts on top of all his blocks.

    Extremely skilled and willing passer. High-low to Timme and cutting guards will be fun to watch. Ayayi would have gotten 3 layups a game off cuts if he overlapped with Chet.

    Lastly, he’s able to be the guy if he needs to be but he’s also willing to sacrifice numbers for the team. He was not exactly hunting his shot the last couple weeks. He’s going to fit in really well. Can’t wait!

    Chet is going to be great at Gonzaga and beyond, but Wenbanyana has the look of a potential GOAT.
    Getting vaccinated isn’t a political issue. It’s a statistical issue of which the evidence of the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines are abundantly clear. Staying unvaccinated is denying reality around you.

    f Wenbanyana is 17 maybe the Zags can get him. Afterall, isn't Ayayi and Turiof from France?

    Whambamyama is some tall dude. He's listed at 219 cm or 7'2" and Canada's Zach Edey, also all tournament team, is listed at 220 cm.
    That doesn't seem right looking at this photo:

    If Whambamyama is 7'2" then Chet would be somewhere around 6'9" from looking at this picture...so my guess is Whambamyama "LOOKS" like he is 7'4"...
