Great profiles by the WBR team. My comments;
GG- Great profile. IMO GG has a Stainbrook type of breakout year…for the Jays this season. He’s healthy, he knows he can play with the big dogs, and he’s hungry. Go Geoff. As for ingame durability – as long as he paces himself, 20 minutes should not be an issue. Hopefully ZH and JP can squeeze in a few minutes.
jMilli- Great profiles…good stuff guys. James’ game should improve due to experience, confidence, and greater team depth. He won’t have the burden of “carrying” the team, which will allow him greater flexibility and less pressure to perform.
IZ- IZ is a Phoenix…he gets burned…but “again I rise”. He rises from the ashes again…in triumph! He will be a spark for the squad with his shooting and his leadership.
Chase perfection – catch excellence.
THeggs– Sounds as though THeggs has his confidence back, enthusiastic and excited for the season. The quality and depth of our bigs should reduce / eliminate any thoughts of having to carry the team. He can contribute and just play the game. He should have a good frosh to sophomore jump in his stats.
CoopDreams (Malik)- This young man, along with Khyri…are the wildcard players. Malik is a scoring machine (in the Marcus Foster vein) and is a good PG to boot. Should injuries mount at either guard spot Leek can come in, augment the team, and boost production. Humble but talented. He was and is a great late pickup, who will pay big dividends this season.

Media articles: I was set to go on a tirade against small ball and excessive dependence upon the 3pt shot. However, Coach Mac knows better than I and a series of OWH articles have put me in my proper place. It is wait and see time, regardless of my small opinion. Also a piece on transfers and one on the Jays inclusion in the 2016 Paradise Jam. Two articles on current injuries and effects on practices.
