Its been awhile since our guys have been on the court ( home or away). Anybody have any thoughts on who is ready to play for us ( Q ?, etc). What should we expect from S Miss?? Cant wait to attend another game.

I am with you, BlazrDawg, I can't wait to get back to Bartow tomorrow night...and Saturday afternoon. I have no idea what to expect; I haven't heard any reports about Quan but I can't imagine that he will be back just yet. And we clearly were a different team when he was not out there.

No idea about Southern Miss either, but because of this crazy scheduling we will get to see them twice in 24 hours, so we should know all about them in a few days.
Quan is out indefinitely with MCL tear. Been reported a couple of times. Was looking to be the heart of the team, in my opinion.

I believe Terrell Ard Jr had knee surgery and is out as well.
Q was the motor that powered the D and also the attack O after turnovers, etc. He will be sorely missed. I hope he can save the year and return next season.

Let’s get these W’s
It doesn’t sound like Quan is out for the entire rest of this season, as of now. They sound like they are gonna take it week by week, then see where he and we stand late in conference play
Forgot Tae Hardy went to USM


Blazers lead 40-31 at halftime
50-45 blazers

53-45
After TSGs 4th three

10:27 to go.
Timeout
61-49 UAB

7:20 to go
__________

66-55 UAB
TimeOut
Just started watching. How did we end up taking so many threes? Part of the game plan, or were those just the open shots available?
They went zone in first half. We Made shots here and there. They got sloppy with ball.

Blazers win
72-60

Play again at 4 tomorrow.

Is on ESPN plus, too
UAB with 15 assists and only 5 turnovers. 7 steals.
Really tough not being able to yell at full strength without the whole arena looking at you like you just committed a crime. Either way still fun to watch our Blazers play. Really need Trey to tear up the paint tomorrow afternoon.

They went to zone. Took us longer to adjust than I expected. I haven't watched all of our games this year, but I don't see a "drive & dish" guy like AJ getting us open looks.

We’re relying on our shooting a little more than we should be. Overall we’re still putting forth an awesome product, there were just times when we looked sort of lost tonight. I think that had more to do with this being the first full game without Quan, he seemed to be one of the big leaders in the locker room and obviously on the court, so I think we’re still trying to find an identity after that unfortunate injury.

We only played seven tonight. Depth among our bigs may become an issue. Will Kirkland see the floor or is he the second coming of Beas Hamga?
