  • Nice article on Durley.

    http://www.kansas.com/sports/story/261855.html

    Too bad we don't have football, he could be in the band.

    Or he could play some TE for us.



    Maybe both.



    It was also nice to read that Gene will make his first Shocker game since he was fired. It was great to see Randy back at WSU and now Gene.

      At this point, I think that you have to put him down as the biggest surprise / positive of the season? I am a little surprised that he hasn't received any MVC recognition yet.

      Can you just imagine Durley, Garrett, Ellis and our new point guards next year?

      Holy cow! No wonder KU doesn't want to start a series with us!

        Yes he is a huge surprise. And I'm sure those guys aren't the reason KU isn't playing us. I think we've beaten that topic down into submission.

          Nothing Durley has done has really surprised me. But I will say that he may be the biggest positive of the season so far.

          Durley will be even more dangerous next year as he'll have a season under his belt and some post help with size. Our depth next year at every position will help him as well as I don't think we have to worry about subs coming in that can't get the job done or fall too far off of what the starters do. We could run some nice hi/low stuff with Stutz and Durley in together.

            You don't need shades for that Sub. Anyone could see the potential for next year. Even our friends from other schools.

              If he keeps progressing, there are going to be some interesting times at Koch!

              Is it just me, or does Durley seem to have an exceptional skill set as a freshman?

              Not being able to attend any of the games, what clips I have seen of him impresses!

                I think Durley will at least get votes for NoY and 6th Man this year. If his game keeps improving the way he's going now, he could win both. It's going to take some work, but J.T. seems to be starting to understand that part of D1 ball too.
                The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.

                  Durley has a ton of potential as I've mentioned a few times. His offensive game is advanced and he continues to improve and learn how to use his body and strength inside. I don't worry about his D as some do. He's a freshman and does a decent enough job as such and is already showing some improvement. He's going to be a beast of a player and I think he finally realizes that as well. There's reason to be impessed and excited about JT.

                    I was lucky enough to watch him play at some of the pickup games before he hurt his knee. He was overweight and didn't have the stamina of the other guys, but the skill set was there.

                    Watching him respond to the "encouragement" of the coaching staff has been a delight, but not unexpected.

                      What I like about JT is his game instincts, and being able to finish a play good.
                      He rises to the challenge.

                        JT is playing strong, has the tools to be a very solid Shocker player before he graduates, and a needed shot in the arm to this years inside game. He is head and shoulders above where I thought he would be at this juncture. Reply # 11
                        Shocker basketball will forever be my favorite team in all of sports.
