Brooks play
Not sure if it got talked about much, but Brooks had one of the plays of the game. A textbook block shot that was tapped to Jennifer, followed by a sprint to the other end for a dunk. That was the best sequence of play I've seen his two years here. Wonder if there was a replay of that.

He seems to have turned a corner recently. He's playing with a lot of confidence, not rushing on offense as much, and continued improvement on D.

RE: Brooks play
I'm glad because I really like his defensive prospect and mobility, etc. We will really need him to step up another level or two next year. Glad he is looking better.

RE: Brooks play
I want to see him pull down more rebounds when he's in the game.

Yes. I posted game highlights video on the game thread. Agree that it was a great play and to see a guy about 7 foot run like a tall gazelle is a thing of beauty!

RE: Brooks play
Poor guy got a foul called on him last night because he was so much bigger and stronger than the guy he was boxing out who just fell down.

I remember that. 03-hissyfit I know a lot of people are worried about replacing our bigs next year, but I think Brooks has the potential to fill in quite nicely.

Agreed. He has the physical tools, and we don't need him to be a jump shooter as long as he can catch the ball on the roll and dunk like he did last night. But he sometimes loses rebounds and passes he shouldn't because the ball bounces right off his hands. Hopefully his increased confidence will lead to him holding onto the ones he would have previously dropped.

I liked the play where he went for the dunk but the defense would have stopped him, so instead he slid off to the right, reached as close to the rim as he could and then tossed it in from a foot away. Nice adjustment.

Damn straight, Jarr Jarr Brooks. I came away so much more encouraged about our prospects in the paint next season. He could be a beast his senior year if he continues to develop.
