I feel like Cole is a lock to grab 10 boards this game.

If he can't turn it around this season, I see no reason to continue playing him next year unless we're tanking again.

If Gillespie is ahead of Mo Wagner in the rotation, then why is Wagner on the roster?

We play pretty well/hard against good teams. We’re just overmatched from a talent standpoint in those games and ultimately wilt down the stretch.

We are absolutely horrendous against our fellow bottom feeders.

Starting to get the suspicion that RJ has low basketball IQ.

He looked good with minutes. Some guys can do good in small roles but seems Okeke needs the ball a bit

Freddie Gillespie fun to watch at the end of the half there. Dude hustling all over and getting after it. He’s like a shorter Khmer Birch.
