assuming bouk leaves to nba after the season, this recent stretch of games is basically a preview for next year.

what has become painfully obvious is that we badly need a scoring threat who can consistently create for themselves and others. hopefully hawkins can be that guy quickly next year.

Hawkins is not a threat to create for himself. Diggins is the guy that can create his own shot and create for others

It's reliant on freshman, but a lot of what we're missing these past 2 weeks can come from the freshman and injured players. We need a PG and playmakers, which Diggins and Jackson can provide. We need better help defense which Akok and Johnson should be able to provide

There wasn't a livestream of this video as far as I could tell, but this video has good highlights. Hawins dropped 23. Mcnamara isn't a top 25 team or anything but they do have Favour Aire a 4* 2022 that I think we offered, so they at least aren't a cupcake.

Look at this ridiculous 50 feet shot to end the half https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=203

This pull up is just as smooth as you'll find. Elite shooter. https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=157

NBA range https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=235

Wacky finish over length.. not sure we want that as part of our offense lol https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=281

He is absurdly good at playing the baseline like this. https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=311

Goes 2/2 from the line to ice the game https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=434


A few minutes interview with Jordan at the end. He seems like a pretty reserved but well-spoken kid. https://youtu.be/tbDIs0gpTYY?t=489

He’s another UConn “Dam Breaker” kid. As Chief joked, a real “Heart Breaker” for schools that missed out. Good job by coaches to keep him in fold after Hunter left. DMV

Not sure but my guess is that Diggins is kind of small to create for himself consistently at the college level. Granted he can penetrate and dish and score enough to keep them honest. Maybe he will be crafty enough to get that separation - time will tell?
