    I think he's gonna have a lot of trouble getting his shot up at the D-1 level. Plus the 3-point line is moving back about 15 or 16 inches. Not sure how that will affect the shooters yets but the percentage of made 3-pointers is bound to go down.

    Let's all hope he has a particular knack for getting wide open for that set shot (or Coach Terry has some great plays designed for that wide open shot).

    Thanks for your thoughts, Train. The problem is that, on paper at least, this kid's playmaking skills don't seem that impressive. That's why I listed his assists and turnover numbers, and the 1.5 apg and .88 assist to turnover ratio at the JC level don't lead me to think that he will be any better a backup than what we have right now.

    I agree that .363 isn't bad, but it's not that great either. We came into this offseason really needing two things: a good outside shooter and (as Train just pointed out) a backup at point guard. I don't really think that an okay, but not great, shooter without playmaking skills is worth burning a scholarship.

    Good point, axingfools. If he's not on scholarship then I think it's a quality decision. If he is on scholarship then we're in agreement, Terry should have held on to it.

    This one is a head scratcher? Need to see more video. Does have a sweet outside touch.

    Is it just me or has CRTs freshman recruiting efforts been a bit poor the past few cycles so far? I like the transfers, but if we win and CRT leaves in 2 years then what will have left? The recruiting from the ground up needs to improve so this team can improve, not start over again in a few years.

    For me, I am into the "wow, this team should be exciting to watch" aspect at this point. That aspirin moment is for another day.:p

    This is exactly why I donโ€™t see him staying long and poaching some of our players like he did w/Fresno. Then again, I got flack for saying it so :cool:

    Better be ready to redshirt if you pick UTEP young man.

    I disagree. Him getting transfers tells me he is going to stay a while. Or at least until the transfers are done. It would be pretty messed up if they have a good year and he leaves. I dont think Bryson Williams can transfer again?? Would he have to sit out again if he transferred??

    Williams would need to graduate in order to transfer to another D1 school.

    Is 3-4 years 'a while?' I know its impossible to tell, but that's what CRT is looking at before likely moving on to a power 5. This would mean that he did well and won here at UTEP. The winning part I like. The starting over part I don't. I just hope we have some talent left if and when he leaves.

    The year Terry makes the NCAA Tourney will be his last season here. If all goes according to plan, I would be very shocked if Terry is our coach after the 2020 season.

    He stole the ball from Tarke and dunked in front of Hawkins. From what I can see it is Tarke, Lathon, Williams and Hawkins in the blue and Efe, Campbell, Archie and Stroud in the Orange.

    We got athletes! No more guys who get playing time because their only skill is taking charges. We have guys who can play. It's been a long time since we've had that at UTEP. I'm excited.

    Do you think this team this year is going to be better than the 14-15 team? Even after losing M. Moore the year before, I thought they were the best CTF team that he ever fielded at UTEP (after his 1st season). That team was big, athletic, could score and defend and shoot 3's. They were a bad free throw team. Unfortunately they were not as deep in the backcourt as they could of been and never got over the hump. How does this year's team compare?

    I think so. Additionally, I think Floyd became a net negative from an Xs and Os standpoint at the of his career. He kept sagging off shooters, too stubborn to realize that teams now want to shoot 3s and he kept giving them exactly what they wanted.

    This is Coach Terry's first real year. I'm expecting a NIT appearance because now a days it's next to impossible to get a NCAA birth of you're from mid-major. 25 wins.

    Mike D'antoni basketball. Strange because NBA puts emphasis on ten to fifteen foot range. If I remember correct that's what JWash had to work on.

    I thought today's basketball was about getting to the rim, the foul-line, and shooting threes.

    Have you watched a Houston Rockets game with D'Antoni as coach? If someone shoots a mid-range shot there's ca good chance they're getting benched.
