    I dunno...I'd sure feel more like a champion with a victory right about now. The CAA is getting hit this year! On a sidenote...I really hate Sunny 104.5 FM playing music before the post game is completed. Stinks!!

    They jumped ugly on us as we never recovered.

    Sherwood sounded like a bright spot. Sounded like Matt Wilson gave solid minutes.

    It will be interesting to see Brian Mulls productivity stats.

    The good news for this team is the CAA stinks this year and they might be able to compete with every team.These kids are just not very good players yet and it will take some time to mold this into a team because right now they look like they all have different game plans.Just a thought but it looks like Smith and Simmons shoot way to much and Milson has never made shots as a Seahawk so why not try to go inside or at least pass the ball to the open man.This is not Georgia high school ball and the other guys will play defense so give it a try yourself and maybe you can stop them.I saw nothing worth a damn out of this game,not ready to play and no effort.Team grade-D.coaching-D minus.

    Milson won us some key games last year and shot a good % for the year as I recall. I do agree that some of the shots were not in the flow of the offense, especially KK today but he can hit that shot. Lacking the "swagger" type of confidence necessary to hit shots of that nature. Like you said, feed the post or have better ball/player movement.

    Check out his percentages and you will be surprised-good free throw shooter but thats it.35.9 % from the floor last year and 0-7 this year is not real good.I like his shot but it does not go in the basket for whatever reason.

    He shot almost 40% from 3 last year and shot over 100 shots. That's VERY good! His problem this year thus far has been a lack of confidence. Much of that has come from a mindset that is like....well, Adam is the man so I'll just defer. If you're a 3 point specialist, like he is, that's a mindset that won't work. He will find his niche. It's certainly not his mechanics although when you're not locked in and confident you don't instinctly set your feet and snap with confidence. He needed that last one to fall today but he did at least rotate defensively in the 2nd half when others were out of position help side. There's a lot of work to be done on both sides of the ball.

    35.9 from the field is horrible and 0-7 is what it is,you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig.The kid has good form and bad results and should make at least 42% to counter his lack of defense and T.O.s.I do think he can contribute to a team off the bench if he shoots the ball well but if he misses he has to sit down quickly.His niche is as a hired gun.

    40% from 3 is very good and most of his shots were from 3. I'm not saying that Tanner is all world but just stating the truth. We agree that shooting is his biggest asset.

    I think he should higher than that to be effective on offense and I think he had to do to much last year and it affected his percentage.He is not a point guard and is not a great defender.He and Tomko had to be the worst defensive back court in the CAA and he was just a freshman forced into a tough spot and had to grow up on the job.I think he shoots better this year simply because he should be fresh most of the time and appears to be a little stronger as well.I was all over him last year but he has improved but still needs to knock down the open shot and not drive the ball and take a bad shot.

    Exactly! But we do have the pieces to get there and we will.
