    More like overseas ball where hotdogs are served.
    They actually play defense in the Almost Competitive Conference.

    i sort of expected to hear this about Mann. Shocked that AN chose this route. I wish him the best in his future endeavors. There is zero doubt we were better with him than without him the last two years.

    Looking forward to see what the future brings for both parties.

    Here are some interesting comparisons/stats of previous Mike White teams.

    When Florida had Hill/Chiozza who are both fast, athletically quick 6'1" ish point guards, Mike White's teams in 2017 & 2018 averaged 78.3 ppg and 76.1 ppg, respectively. Those were arguably Coach White's best two teams at Florida.

    In 2017, the duo of Hill/Chiozza averaged 16.9 ppg, 8.3 apg 3.0 stl/g and 6+ reb/g. This was not quite the triple-double that Russell Westbrook enjoyed for a couple of years under Billy Donovan but it's pretty great for a college point-guard duo.

    When UF had Nembhard at Florida, those teams averaged 68.3 ppg (in 2019) and 71.9 ppg (in 2020) which were noticeably lower than before. During these years according to KP, Florida's defense also took a dip:
    2017- #5 overall UF (#25 off, #5 def)
    2018- #22 overall UF (#41 off, #24 def)
    2019- #26 overall UF (#61 off, #16 def)
    2020- #32 overall UF (#27 off, #61 def)

    We'll see how Florida does next year (hopefully) when they return to the quicker & smaller sized point guards in Appleby, Glover and ?Mann.

    It's called having a small mind.

    A lot of that going around in talk forums these days......

    Per TOS, coaches moved on from AN once he entered the draft, which is why the accepting the big kid..

    Not so sure. I think Gonzaga prefers their G's be consistent shooters. They don't play slow either. It's a great offensive system thought in which talented players can really flourish. They also work the transfer market aggressively.

    I think White is having some trouble, but I’m not sure is one of the problem stats. White seems committed to having 13 players on scholarship at all times, so I think we should expect a lot of turnover there, and it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

    Nembhard is a different case though, as he wasn’t buried in the depth chart.

    No doubt we were better with Nembhard as the point guard in his freshman year, although Okauru deserved more minutes. Plenty of doubt on his sophomore year when he was a completely different player.

    Andrew was a quiet leader, leading by his efforts. Always in control of himself. I don’t know how he contained his emotions at times when he was getting slammed to the floor or mugged when shooting, but it was leading by example and the team kept their heads when he was in the game. This was his strength in his game. The SEC coaches are glad he is not with the Gators anymore. We will survive, hopefully flourish, but Andrew strengths will be missed.

    He needs to go to a mid major that likes to play slow. He can thrive there

    You mean the one that could finish at the rim?

    AN was the starting point guard on a tournament team and averaged 33 minutes a game. To transfer even with the possibility of having to sit out a year indicates there was a problem. The likely conflict was between AN and CMW. I have no idea what the conflict was but if the conflict was with anyone or anything else then it could have been resolved. It could have been something on the order of “I want to play this way” vs “I need you to play that way”. Details are unlikely to be forthcoming and I really don’t care. Say thank you and move on. Having said that, it does add an interesting additional degree of interest to next years team......

    Yes, and also the one that continuously used up way too much of the shot clock. By the way, Glover finished at the rim better than Nembhard.

    Calling BS on this. Late in the game AN finished at the rim in heavy traffic lots of times. Glover got caught without knowing what to do more times than I can count and threw up crappy shots.

    You can of course name a few times that Glover actually did finish at the rim and pretend that was the usual outcome.

    Just curious but does anyone ever blame MW for this offense? AN has taken so much blame, but where does MW fall in this? It’s his team isn’t it? And if he wasn’t happy with AN, why did he keep playing him? If he sits him he sends a message that he wasn’t happy with his slow play, right? But that didn’t happen. So our coach allowed this to happen, so I can’t blame AN for the way he played.

    Hate to see Nembhard go, but I'm confident he'll be appreciated more at his next stop. So, good luck to him.

    Okauro? I love your opinions around here but you've chosen this weird hill to die on. Okauro was terrible, and is putting up pedestrian stats at UNC Wilmington.
