you and passat25 are blind.

The guy should be averaging 18/19 PPG like he showed today and several other games. He's the best offensive talent on the team. So when someome averages 12.5 PPG instead of 20 then that is a little bit of a let down. I like the guys game a lot but it would be nice to get that most of the time. But I get that we have other dudes that can score so he isn't going to be "the man". But he could be.

Honestly, I hadn’t been checking box scores this year, but when he was announced on the all-conference team, it surprised me a little. I guess Nolley was more like the “quiet assassin” type of player all along for us. Glad he used his talents to our advantage this year. And he doesn’t seem to be so overly demonstrative when he is doing it.

Both Nolley and Williams as transfers...yeah, Penny knows what he’s looking at.

Why would you expect a guy who shot 37% from the floor and 31% from the 3 the previous year to average 20 ppg.

I don't think the issue is with Nolley's performance but more with your expectations.

How could anyone test positive at this point? Didn't they have to pass every day from their arrival at indianapolis?

Yeah, heard that. Got to wonder who else might be exposed & test positive? How tight is the bubble? Are teams, since they continually test negative, able to interact or are they isolated except for game exposure?

59% FT shooter stepped up and drained them to win the game like it was nothing. Talk about earning the W.
