    AN has taken his fair amount of criticism since he's been here for his lack of athleticism, but watching him glide up and down the court with ease, his ball control, and night and day difference taking it to the hole this year, has me a little worried about next year...

    Quez has been a liability in SEC play, and not sure if Tyree is a true PG.

    Thoughts on our PG play next year?

    Appleby should be the starter as it stands right now.

    Another year for Ques: anticipate he’ll be much improved.

    early in CMW’s career here, we were referring to him as the “Guard Whisperer”. We need to see similar player development from this young crew.

    Has anyone commented on his practice scrimmages or have you heard anything in any way that gives of hope for the pg position. I would think Nembhard’s games like Texas A&M, Auburn should propel him to a contract if he decides it time to pack his bags and leave the sunshine state.

    Tyree Appleby is definitely a point guard. His assist rate was one of the highest in the country last year (higher than Nembhard's and higher than Chiozza's in 2018) and he does all his best work with the ball in his hands. He's definitely a different point guard than the Gators have had in a long time due to his lethal scoring ability but I wouldn't see his scoring numbers and think he's not a point guard. I'm definitely comfortable with him running things. His defense wasn't great, but coming off a redshirt year I think he'll be improved. I'm a big fan of Appleby and I can't wait to have a scoring point guard like him

    I love hearing that about Appleby!

    If Nembhard returns, I can't imagine him not starting. But, there's no reason we can't have two capable PGs in the starting lineup.

    Or, how about three? Nembhard, Appleby and Mann*? :cool:


    * - if Mann returns

    I think we should trade off all our assets and run with 5 bigs...let's see how that works out o_O

    I'm with the OP in that watching AN and how smooth, decisive, shifty, etc - that he could find a home in the NBA. He's a little like SGA on the Thunder, a master at shifting speeds - with better court vision but maybe not as good ability to finish (obviously, since SGA is playing at borderline All-Star level in the NBA). He may or may not go - but if he does we'll be in good hands with Appleby

    So you’re claiming that he doesn’t get any assists when the ball is not in his hands?

    I cannot imagine AN in the NBA. He loses 3-5 seconds bringing the ball up against any SEC defender who pressures him and struggles to create off the high screen due to his slow speed. Guy has size and good vision but just do not see NBA athleticism there (hope I am wrong). He has nothing on the fast break and for every great pass he makes, it seems we have a late clock shot or violation due to us not initiating the offense crisply. I see him in Europe or Israel.

    Why would you think that when he almost left after his freshman year. He has demonstrated that in the right offense and in a position to run an offense the way he wants to, he is a double double point guard night in and night out. He also is good for at least 5-6 rebounds a game which means he'll get his share of triple doubles in the next league. AN is gone after this season!

    That's the offense we run not because AN is not capable of pushing the envelope.




    He is running a completely different offense than in high school so we are not even closely seeing what he is capable of doing. It's like getting a top running back to come to a school and then throwing the ball every play. "The best part of his game is when he is attacking" RJ Barrett. When he does that for us we are unstoppable. When MW has him running this last second offense and then have someone chuck it up and pray, we don't look as good.

    I was just throwing out possibilities, and if we run a 3-guard offense, it might be better if all 3 guards have some size. It's certainly not a requirement, however.

    I'm sure Glover will get plenty of opportunities to contribute also. I like Glover even though I'm not as high on his current play as you are.
