Is Holliday going to be much of a help to us this season?

He leads the team in Steals.

He'll be fine when his shots start finding the mark.

When he gets the start, that's always a sign of what's happening in practice every day. He did not show any offense to speak of tonight, but CM is certainly in the position to know what he's capable of.

He got the start because Javeon was injured. Granted, Matt could have started someone else so that speaks to his ability and work ethic but that’s still why he started tonight.

Personally I think Chico will be the starting PG by the end of the season, with Daquan being that first guy off the bench that can come in and get buckets. I may be wrong, but I just see Chico as the more natural PG. But can we talk about Robinson??? He is raw, but my word is the skill set there for him to be an unbelievable player for us. I was not expecting him to have that soft of a touch around the rim this early. Him and KJ are going to be an absolute handful in the paint, think about what kind of numbers they are going to put up in a couple years when they are both upperclassmen :shock: :shock: scary!

I get the “tune-up game” argument, but I personally feel that can be done against higher quality D-1 opponents. Our program has come a long way. Tune-up opponent quality today should be higher than it was 15 years ago.

I live an hour and twenty minutes away with three small children. I am a season ticket holder. I like to see us playing better competition, even in tune-up games. MHO.

I think everyone was aware of that situation. I was equally unimpressed by his offense, but am willing to give the coaching staff the benefit of the doubt.

That KJ/Tevin senior year season after next if things hold together and we add another key piece or two is shaping up to be something else.

PS in regard to Chico/Quanny I really liked that Chico at the 1, Tevin and Quanny SG/wing and Nell/KJ or some combo inside lineup we showed a lot of last night.

Was this game on ESPN Plus? Is the quality any better this season ? I don’t know if I need to upgrade my Roku, or, if it’s ESPN. But, last season I started missing OVC digital network.
I canceled my subscription. The quality was awful last season. I'll just listen to Neal on the radio when I can't attend. Much more reliable and crystal clear.

I tried that with mine. Constant buffering. I live in the middle of nowhere, however, and can only muster two Verizon bars of LTE. I'm so far out, internet isn't an option. :lolno:

Gotta pay but it’s not outrageous.

Have you tried ATT fixed wireless internet? My cousin is installing that (3rd party installer) and has told me he is having great luck getting great speed and connection even where there is little cell phone signal. $40/mo for 215 GB data according to their site: https://www.att.com/internet/fixed-wireless/

Yep. The guy came out and said he couldn't get a signal. Too many trees he said. Funny enough, everyone else that's in the house that has AT&T picks up at least two bars from inside the home. And the guy couldn't get a boosted signal OUTSIDE??? I think I need a second opinion on that.

I’ve got an AT&T tower a half mile behind my house but that link says my area is not eligible lol.

I would try satellite internet, but if you know anyone with satellite internet, you'll know that streaming is not a likely possibility. Too slow. Throttled.
