    The time he spent with the team at the highest levels of NCAA competition will give him a huge confidence leap over his peers.

    I think playing last season is a huge factor. Practice with the #1 ranked recruit also helps.

    Smile Mr. Harris!

    Very excited to see Dom play. Seems to have the athleticism to be a great defender. Looks smooth and quick. Good size.




    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    for committing to a legit 10 man rotation all year because of the unprecedented depth to do all of that stuff you listed

    I will go with Watson....his defense has always been dependable....and he was the 4th or 5th option on offense last year.....he might be asked to do more on offense this year....he did have several remarkable post season games..... where it really matters....

    I am hoping Harris and Strawther are our surprise breakout players this year. They have waited patiently for year and should be ready to make a bigger impact.

    We’ve already had the biggest surprise of the season.

    No one guessed it.

    As for the second biggest surprise, I think Timme gets POY honors.

    Considering he is going to be the projected NPOY prior to the season, that won't be a big surprise. You were right on the first biggest surprise though-- we all struck out on that one.

    I think it is Anton. You have to remember his last offseason he was recovering from surgery and the team struggled with prep because of COVID. We need him and Stawther to be legit to win the natty this year.

    4 games in (including exhibition games), my retrospective answer to the biggest surprise question is absolutely Rasir Bolton!

    The drem of going 9-10 deep seems to be a little off. Anton's aggression is much appreciated.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I have three biggest surpises:

    1) Timme, yes we new he was good but his footwork this year is so much better and midrange shots look good.
    2. Boulton is way better than i had thought he would be. Good on both defense and offense. Will help stretch the court.
    3. Watson. He is more agressive than last year. The coaches have convenesed him to look for his shot. All around a super player.

    He makes a huge difference on defense. Good length and quick hands.
