Subject: My take on the Fan Fest
In reply to: CLK 's message, "Fan Fest" on Friday, October 22, 06:15:53pm

My take:

Not a bad crowd for a 9am start, it doubled when the men came out. I like the new seats except they are attached to each other in a way that makes them all rock at once if you lean forward or backwards. This could be quite annoying with a full row of rowdy fans. I sat in the "good" seats on the North side and thought they were overall comfortable. The scoreboard looks nice, definitely not HD though. No score on it either... I think that is odd. They should add a graphic to the video feed or something. Also they should make a video of the players for their "player card" that shows their attributes. I hope as they get used to using the screen they will develop ways to utilize it well. The video feed from above really makes the arena look nice. The lack of bleachers gives the arena a more professional appearance on TV.

As for the players:

Marhold: : looked confident and bigger than last year. Also saw him giving some orders/advice to several players. Had some big dunks. He is one athletic dude. I think he will get a lot of playing time at the 4 and 5.

Talley: Very small and wiry, but lighting quick. Seriously the quickest guy on the court by a long shot. Good ball handler.

Wright: Looks ready and mature. Should see some minutes this year.

Evans: Shot the ball well and played consistently well through out.

Jones: Bigger than I though he would be, looked decent.

McConnell: Seemed to have a rough time shooting the ball. This was my first time seeing him. I thought he looked confident and didn't seem to let his misses bother him. He played very hard and was after every lose ball, hit the floor a few times diving for balls. I don't think he met my expectations but he plays the game fundamentally well. Isn't a flashy guy, more of a blue collar guy.

Theis: didnt play

Monteiro: Made some nice moves with the ball to the hoop

Saunders: Played great, acted like a true leader. He called the players into huddles and was an all around coach on the floor throughout. This guy is going places.

Clark: Shot the ball well! Played hard on D and O.

Johnson: didnt play

Peggau: Solid all around. Probably our best option at 5 right now.

Martin: Looked kind of timid. Has he been allowed to practice? The guy is tall though and had loooooong arms. Made a couple good plays but is not going to be starting at the 5 this year in my opinion.

My opinion:
Starting 5 would be: Evans, Montiero, Clark, Saunders, Peggau
1st off the bench: Johnson
best of the rest: 2nd McConnell 3rd Marhold , 4th Wright/Jones/Talley

10/40: 1st line: Evans McConnell Clark Marhold Saunders
2nd line: Talley, Johnson, Monteiro, Wright, Peggau

Just my opinion here, feel free to throw it out the window!
