[quote=“Powerbait, post:19, topic:27066”][quote=“cibik02, post:1, topic:27066”]Clark is the stud of the freshman class. He’s strong in the paint and prob our closest thing to a CC3. Prob one of our most complete players. I can see him playing 20 min and avg 10+
Clayton could be great, just needs to work on handling the ball. Def impressed for him being a freshman.
Thorne might be the best FT shooting big man in a long time. Was disappointed though, thought I’d see post moves of some sort. But hopefully in a couple years he’s a Phil jones type guy at least.
The “potential” of or young guys look promising. If you include Thorne as a freshman, this might be best freshman class in a long time.
Wish I could have seen Thompson play to see what he brings
Very sloppy 2nd half. Lots of dumb passes. Hopefully it’s because of it being an exhibition and just trying pass more and playing more loose
Still not impressed by Nickerson. Too wild and clumsy with the ball. I’m prob being too hard on him but expect more from him
Ingram looks like he can score but needs to protect the ball more. He didn’t do we’ll with pressure
Williams and Henry looked the same.
Benkovic needs a lot of work. He’s a Ian Anderson type but far from that level. Hopefully he just needs a couple years then he can be 10 min per game type 3 pt threat. Hope he surprises us.
We’ll see next Friday what our season might look like. Hard to tell against feefer and 3 guys on the bench that will see major minutes.
So, Clark is going to be as good as CC3 and that’s a good thing, but you hope Thorne can be a Phil Jones level player as if that’s just okay and Phil Jones was on an NBA pre-season roster…[/quote]I feel like Phil was very under-appreciated here. He was a solid player by his senior year and it is a shame that he was not able to finish.
Watching Thorne last night actually reminded me quite a bit of freshman Phil. A big guy with questionable hands, but a great stroke.
As long as he shoots like he did last night from the FT line and can draw fouls, he’ll see playing time.
