    Sorry to be off subject, but I thought this message board was about basketball. Why do the moderators allow somebody like fangfangfang2 to join this board and post items about items that look like nothing but television advertisements. I didn't view any of his posts because I seriously doubt they are about shocker basketball. It's bad enough you get ads on everything on the internet now, but I hope our moderators end this nonsense . Go shocks.

      The mods might want to check into the “High Strength Thread Locker”...

      Then post what he tells you here, paraphrased and prefaced with the smokescreen line "So I had this weird dream about Shocker Basketball last night, and in it ..."

    Has anyone seen what the shockers look like after summer workouts? The only one I have seen is E. Stevenson. He definitely lost the weight he was shooting for.

      Is it OCD when someone checks SN 11 times a day or is it desperate attempt for any news about the Shocks? Asking for a friend.

        Tell your friend, it's perfectly normal, and perfectly healthy.

        I'm no doctor, but it may be Yellow Fever.

        Definitely not OCD. Coming from a family afflicted/blessed (it can cut both ways) with OCD you have a ways to go. Like maybe 12 times a day. Not that I am necessarily admitting to that.

            SN is the only think I check more often than the markets. I hope the Shockers do as well as my investments have done so far this year -FF

                  • As I see it, we really only have two knowns going into this season: 1) Jaime Echenique is effective and efficient on offense and also a good defender, and 2) Dexter Dennis is an efficient 3 point shooter and excellent defender

                    Early on, teams will be focusing their attention on these two players. We need consistent scoring and distribution from the point guard position, we need our SG to be a serious scoring threat from 3 and we need help in the post from the 4 spot, preferably a guy that can stretch the floor on offense. We have potential to fill these holes, but the guys we will rely on need to improve their games from last year. The good news is that the biggest improvement are usually made from year 1 to year 2. I’m expecting big jumps mostly from Burton and Stevenson. We also need better slashing to the basket from Dexter. If we can have a pleasant surprise from any of the others it will make us an NCAA Tourney contender.

                      If they can finish from 2 feet, we will go undefeated.

                  • I feel that our backcourt will be a strength, whether that is Burton and Stevenson with the freshman off the bench, or some combination of freshman and/or sophomore starters. How much of a strength that will be, is yet to be seen.

                    I’m still concerned about the 4. Need hustle and defense from that position and we will be good.

                      Just an optimist’s view:

                      Not disputing the strength of the backcourt. But I think we should be seeing a much improved frontcourt as well.

                      Jaime was playing hurt last year, and is going to be much more mobile and active. I think he improves every stat line this season, and becomes an elite rim protector.

                      Poor Bear has cut up his body, and the weight loss and resultant increase in quickness makes him a legit option at the 4 if we need to go big. The question with him is his recognition and desire on D, which I think has to at least be better than last year. We already know he’s got the offense, so I’m less worried about the size problem at the 4 than some.

                      Asbjorn has already been singled out by Marshall as having made a jump. He’ll be a force inside as well.

                      For these reasons, I don’t see Joshaphat and Deantoni playing large roles this year. They can sit back and learn and adjust their games with an eye toward 2020-21.

                      I’m pretty much freaking psyched for this campaign. We’ll be a threat from day 1 with huge upside and even brighter days ahead. Let’s do this!
