Watched game with a buddy tonight and he would be surprise if Locure is eligible. Good kid he said, already been through a lot. I guess his brother was the dude who crashed into medicap last week after the drug deal.

I think you guys are overplaying the whole "mommy made him apologize" angle. Margaret is a savage. It is more likely Fran made him apologize.

Connor's senior highlights...


He really does have outstanding vision and passing skills. Should fit in nicely backing up Bohannon to start.

Intriguing option is then to start Williams (and unleash him as a slasher/defender) alongside Moss and Bohannon with a Cook/Garza front court.

How will Iowa baseball take that?

Those are 4A highlights too, so you know they count for something.

CR Washington appeared to have a junior high age kid trying to guard him.

Nunge is our least heralded recruit in terms of rankings but he is awesome. State semi steaming now.

Nunge has 16 and we aren't to halftime. Hitting deep threes against an athletic team with hands in his face.

Seriously, if Fran wants to use Nunge like he did Uthoff at SF his soph and junior year, he might be a starter next year. Moss would swing to SG next to Bohannon with Cook and Wagner/Pemsl/Garza. Baer is your sixth man which fits perfectly.

Don't know if he can guard wings in the Big Ten.

Nunge reminds me of Baer with more length and a smoother ball handler. He seems to have great instincts on the boards. They have him playing the top of the press. Kid looks legit.

Agreed, that makes him like every other potential starter at that position on our roster

They were down 8 in the last two minutes I think. Nunge tied it with 25 seconds left then Ben Davis hit a 3 at the buzzer for the win.

Those fuckers couldn't hit a free throw but threw up a three with Jamal Crawford like arch and it went in.

For anyone not watching, Nunge's team was down 8 with a minute left and they did the foul game and got it within 2 points. Then the other team turned it over and Nunge tied the game with 20 seconds left.

The other teams comes down and nails a three at the buzzer to win the game.

His feet no longer look like they're going to break when he moves. He also looks skilled. I am wet.

He's gonna make a HUGE difference next year in the middle of the defense, which was fucking awful this year.

He looks like he may have finally grown into his body.

I am officially excited for the Garza/Nunge era. I now have hopes Nunge can be a sort of Uthoff and taller Aaron White hybrid.

I think we see something approaching Kreiner and Garza full time at the 5 next year unless its a small ball matchup.

Plodding would be an understatement from his video last year. This year he is dunking with ease, blocking shots and running the floor. I think Fran got a steal.

He looks like a fucking Duke player. The type North Carolina fans make fun of for three years before he goes for 18 and 10 and leads them them to a national championship.

I'll allow it.

I love this guy.
Lol at #24. Poor bastard didn't stand a chance.
The reason he didn't stand a chance is because Garza is a full head taller than him. I hope he is able to improve on that 16" vert or is very good at using his body to create space. Looks like a nice player but also looks like another tall white dude who plays below the rim.

The fucker has obviously never had to jump in a bball game. If I was his coach, I'd let the guy guarding him in practice carry a snow shovel.

He appears to have considerably more skill and polish and longer arms than Woody, King. If he's got Woody's effort level, I'll take that player 100 times out of 100.

I too would take a top 125 player with offers from Notre Dame, Louisville, and Indiana.

The "plays below the rim" thing is always an amusing statement....the majority of rebounds are taken below the rim, the good rebounders are usually guys that work hard at getting good position. At his size protecting the rim by at least making guys alter their shots is what Fran's team really needs. If he scores double figures that's great, be he doesn't need to do that to be effective.

Most dribbles occur below the rim as well.

Jumping and being athletic are highly overrated when it comes to basketball.
