    We are undefeated when he's on the court.

    pretty incredible to go from manager to walk-on to seeing the court, all in less than a week!

    He's giving me hope that I can quit my job, abandon my family, work out for a year and walk on to the team. I'm only 42 and have 4 years of eligibility left!

    Got to love when someone with no name on the back of their jersey gets in the game for us.

    Was hoping he would shoot a rainbow jumper to end it

    Honestly, he could have been put in with 2 minutes left in the game, not 30 seconds. They weren't going to lose that lead. CMW with bad TO management yet again!;)

    MW is actually really bad about getting the walk-ons in, if that is a thing. Billy used to get them in with a minute or so left when he could. Even in blow outs MW will sometimes not put them in or do it with like 18 seconds left. I wish he gave them more time.

    Also huge hats off to the Rowdies for chanting for Chris. Way to be aware.

    I was surprised that Jitoboh didn't get in at the end of either the Ole Miss or Auburn games.

    It may be just junk time, but the young guy needs to get his minutes and it would have been great to pull Payne and Blackshear at the end

    i saw somewhere that he averaged 16 points a game, but not sure how accurate that is.

    Thanks, I think him getting in the game was, “who”? The first time I have ever heard of him. Looks like a nice young man, didn’t know where he came from. Can he shoot threes at a high percentage? LOL

    As mentioned earlier, he was good.
    Dunbar High School. Would have played against Emmett Williams when they were younger. May have even played with him on same travel team when they were younger.

    Something I found on the internet showed him playing just 9 games at Dunbar in his senior season, so my assumption is that he was injured. But, he is 6'-3" and had pretty good stats over 3 seasons. Happy to have him on the team and I sure hope he gets some points before it's over.
