MyBB We've got LEGIT height
I know pictures can be a little deceiving, but this pic has me excited.

I've stood next to DJ and Malcom. They are big. James is towering over them. Precious looks to be a legit 6'9".

Can the season start tomorrow, please?

Last year we were 312 out of 353 teams for team average height. That will change this year. We were one of the youngest teams last year, even younger this year.

Yep. That pretty much sums it up. If Penny looks short you know we have some tall players.

We were one of the youngest last year?

With 5 playing seniors?

Many JUCOs perhaps less experienced at D1?

Stokes can’t help this team.

I got used to Penny and Mike being the tallest players on the team last year.

Haha.. yeah, at first glance i was really confused. Only players who could be maybe a little short of their listed heights are boogie and Damion (although looks like school lists him at 6' 3" instead of 6' 4" on his recruiting profile

Is Quinones wearing high heels?

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

-Lance Thomas listed at 6'8" 224 is now listed at 6'9" 224
-James Wiseman listed at 7'0" 210 by 247 is now 7'1" 240
-Precious listed at 6'9" 215 by 247 is 6'9" 225
-Boogie listed at 6'2" 165 by 247 is 6'3" 165
-DJ listed at 6'7" 218 by 247 is 6'7" 225
-Lester Q listed at 6'5" 180 by 247 is 6'5" 220
-Dandridge listed at 6'8" 245 by 247 now 6'9" 250
-Baugh listed at 6'4" 185 by 247 not 6'3" 180

Dandridge is going to be a beast inside if (seems the coaches are trying to convince him) he accepts a role of rebounding, defense and garbage baskets along with a few wide open 12-14’ jumpers.

Strong enough to body up good post players. His ball handling is not good-had 11 turnovers vs the Cali team with both Mobleys playing. Hung with them everywhere except trying to make tough outlet passes and got stripped after rebounds. Don’t think he will be bringing the ball down court in so called position less basketball but we really need him on D.

So they're asking him to take a similar role (if not the exact same) to his role at East HS? Makes sense.

I expect Dandridge will redshirt. It may depend on whether Stokes gets a waiver to play this year.
