      • Haha Kel, no...just a couple of big fans living the dream here in Scottsdale, Arizona watching our beloved Shox.

        I’m a 1998 graduate of WSU. We come back every Christmas to see our family and watch a home game. This year was the VCU game and was the start of Dex absence. We were shocked of course but confident that’s he would come back very soon and get back to his old self if he focused on D and rebounding and let the game come to him. And Marshall has instilled confidence by giving him the green light to shoot as long as he plays tough D (so the announcers said last night anyway). You never know with young athletes of course, and all the potential distractions, but glad he is back.

He became aggressive on offense again and not just settling for 3. Even though he didn’t shoot lights out, 8 points including clutch free throws and 8 rebounds leading the team is HUGE for his confidence going forward. Plus great D without dumb fouls. She has declared him as “back”. I hope she is right! Go Dex Go!
            Something similar happened to Erik early in the season. He was struggling with his shot for the first couple of games, and he nailed a three (can't remember which game) and you could see everything about his demeanor change. He's been a bad ass mofo ever since.

            If indeed this has happened to Dex, this team may be unstoppable.

              (every time I type "Dex", it autocorrects to "sex". My apologies if I don't catch the mistake in future)
              Just add "Dex" to your dictionary and that should take care of it.

                The shot that told me Dex is back was the tw-pointer from just below the right elbow. Shot with 110% confidence. It was after the made three. His shooting form is 250% better than his slump form.

                  • Boy oh boy, if we get Memphis Dex the rest of the way we’ll be in tall cotton the rest of the season! His defense was so much better last night and you could tell he was just letting the game come to him. Glad he didn’t let that missed dunk get him down but I’m pretty sure the crowd reaction would have done serious structural damage to the CKA roof had he thrown it down.

                    • Dex makes us ominous! He may take a few games to get fully back but oh yeah Dex will be back!!!

                      • Shooting 11 times tells me he has overcome a few things. I was kinda surprised when I saw the box score. I didn't realize he shot so many times.

                          Yep. I was actually stoked to see that even though he was 2-11.

                          IMO, beating Memphis was the 2nd best thing to happen to Shocker basketball last night. And it was really great. But getting Dennis going removes basically any limits for this team.

                          • It almost looked like it was the game plan to come out after halftime and feed Dex the ball and have him go crazy. I think he shot it like 3 or 4 possessions in a row. But the end of the succession, and another clank, I think it was time to cool the jets.

                            But he definitely got after it in other areas. In that sense, he is back.

                            I REALLY wanted that jam to go down and the backboard to break.

                            • Dex has a couple of shots blocked by Memphis plus the missed dunk. Clean that up and he would have had 14.

                                The one thing I really noticed was his face. He seem to have the look of the 'eye of the tiger' again and that's good for the shocks. Keep moving forward shocks no excuses.
