Very welcomed news. Geno, work on whatever advice was given to you and make both yourself and the Huskies better this season.

It all starts with selflessness and a team-first attitude. If that does not happen and the team does not gel, it will be another long season of mediocrity.

I’m hoping that what you said was a bit of the advice given to him.

There is no question that this team has talent. With the addition of a big for center, this team can absolutely go all the way. But, what I think we saw last year was that some of these players were selfish and the team did not really gel. I also sense that there is not much respect for Monty. If this continues, it will be dangerous because all the talent in the world won't make it unless the team actually plays like a team. Here's hoping that somewhere they were able to get that message.

If they are healthy the starting line-up will Alize Travis at point guard, German at shooting guard, Thorpe at a wing position, Bradley at forward and Key at forward.

Here's hoping that somewhere they were able to get that message.


1. Why do you say some players were selfish? You could stretch that Geno was selfish but he did what he did because he knew he could score and usually he did score.

2. Why do you say there is no respect for Monty? I do not see lack of
respect and what you say is an easy excuse when the team is not winning. He is a class act and he and his team is getting no respect at the gate. I wish I could attend every game as they are a fun team to watch.

3. How do they not play as a team? Don't tell me there have been yelling matches, because that just shows me they want to win.


Instead of most of you just bitching about this team, turn off espn3 and go to the convo. And take a friend.


If Key comes back healthy and plays at or better than 16-17 and if Daow progresses and can score in double figures this will be the best team NIU has had in ions.


GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I go to the games at the Convo. I watch the away games on ESPN3. It is apparent that either you have not seen the games or perhaps the Florida sun and heat have dulled your senses a bit. If the team was as perfect and harmonious as you suggest, then those arguments and altercations on the floor and the poor record must be an illusion.

Also, I'm wondering if you're aware that NIU was right at the bottom of the country in assists? Did you see all those games with single-digit assists?

I won't give up my season tickets because it's a true bargain. Over the years I have seen some terrible basketball, but I enjoy watching sports inside and I also enjoy being with the group of season ticket holders in my section. One of these years, I'm hoping for a fun season where everything comes together. I don't see that happening until there is a coaching change, but I hope I'm wrong.

RE: German withdraws from NBA Draft, returning to NIU
I too watch all of the espn3 games and attend games I can drive to. Part of the assist problem is they are given for a pass to someone who hits a three. We don't have good three point shooters. I know I am old but the 3pt line has ruined basketball. Like 222 says the lack of 3's is what is holding this team back.


And as pdog said, thank you for your attendance. I hope others are like you and we can get some support for the men and women.

I get very frustrated going to the games when the Huskies lose. Let's just say that there has been a LOT of frustration over the years. Sometimes I just tune the play on the court out. But, I do like the camaraderie with fellow fans in the section where I sit. We have been together in that section for many years, and it's great seeing the same faces each year. Many times the conversations among fans are more entertaining than the game itself.

Just for clarification there is no clarification. Stats are very vague and are subject to interpretation for assists.

Just to clarify, if a young girl in my office makes a pass at me, do I credit her with an assist? And when I wake up, is that assist still valid?
