RE: Cokley and Lee invited to Portsmouth Invitational Tournament
Maybe I will head down there to catch the games one of the weekend days. Hopefully their teams will be playing on the same day. It was fun when I went to see PDIII, Vaden and Kinnard play in the PIT. I got to speak to all of them.

I'm shocked that you did not cast aspersion on the point guards they've played with.

They've only played with one.

Neither had great first games. Haha kept chucking them from deep, going 0-6 from 3. He did have a nice block though.
Cokely had 10 points and 8 boards, but was bothered by the bigger player he was matched up with and missed a lot of contested shots in the paint and got exposed a bit defensively.

Haha kept spotting up for threes and would get a pass... but I think that after a bit the other team was letting him shoot. Commentator kept saying he should go inside or play pick and roll. When I think about it, i don't know that the pick and roll is a big part of our offense. Have I just been missing it or is that correct?

What’s a pick and roll? I can’t recall seeing UAB perform one in quite some time.

Haha think he's a stretch because he played one in College, but rarely stretched the floor. He can hit the 3 but is a rhythm shooter.

Haha has to be a stretch player at the next level. It makes sense that he is focusing on that part of his game.

Before this past season, Lee was a better than decent three point shooter.

One of the most maddening things about watching our offense the past four years. Lee and Cokely were the prototypical guys most coaches would run a pick and roll. Maybe the coaches didn't think we had the guards. I always wanted to see Lee and Cokely run a P&R together at least once.

Two things not used at UAB: A pick and roll and apparently the weight room. Lee listed at 206. Was listed 210 coming out of high school. Would have been nice to have him work on his all around game and not just standing out on perimeter shooting 3s. Put on some muscle, work on low post area. You know things that would help his UAB career first. He could have been so much more on the court. His responsibility for sure but good coaching could have gotten more from him. Don't give me the whole blocking shots crap. A lot of those were just his long arms, athleticism. Not being in right position defensively. He was a good player but I think most would agree we expected more when he signed with us.
