Nick is rusty, but I'm not concerned. He had 9 assists last night. On a team with this many weapons, that is shat he should be doing rather than scoring. Keep in mind that the only players on this team he has played in games with are Lee, Cokley and Sullivan.

Totally agree. He had some moments in half court sets though were you could see he was bit slower in anticipation than usual. But like you said he does have all these new pieces. He was tough on himself in the post game and I love that.

I’m not worried about Nick, he will do what the team needs him to do. There was always going to be an adjustment period with him coming back from injury. I hope he is rounding into form by the time conference play starts.

Must say I was impressed with the 9 assists myself. Not impressed with HaHa's rebounding numbers. Cokley and Bryant will lead this squad.

Perry,Darling,Lee, and Norton will pick up the rest of the scoring load.

Sullivan,Fueye,Lavender are still trying to get a good feel on how they help out.

Watching those highlights...the lineup with Nick, Scootie, Nate and Ha-Ha, we have four 3-point threats on the floor at once. Been a long time since we could say that.

We are on another level compared to last year. Interested to see how we adjust to real competition.

I have been pretty impressed with Lavender's play coming off the bench. He and Sullivan are good sparks off the bench. I think Perry will be starting by mid season and maybe taking Darling's place.

We have unprecedented guard depth. Lew, Coke, and Haha are going to be fantastic for us in the front court and if Gueye can slowly improve we're in for a very special season. Depending on how some pieces fall we might have a 901 area code addition in the spring.

Are you talking about Tyler Harris at Cordova HS.

I hope so. I saw that kid play as a freshman in HS and was blown away. Memphis is salivating for him and he blew them off in the early signing period, apparently waiting for the late signing period.

I'm not worried about Nick either. If he's still not playing very well during CUSA play, then we may have a problem. 9 assists suggests he's not too far off from being his usual self.
