Notes from Open Practice last Friday

Postby The Falcon » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:08 pm

Forgive me for reposting this. Since that practice is past, I'm not sure if many saw my post
and I wanted to see if any other Ponyfans might have been there. I would be interested to
know if they agreed or not with my observations. I would especially like to know if you had
any other opinions. My original post is listed below:

Anyone have some notes or thoughts on players?"

Hunt is even more athletic this year and can hit the 3. Chaggy hit a couple of 3's behind
the longer line. Both the red and blue teams were very disciplined in setting up plays and
in playing defense. It was obvious that McNeil (transfer fm Cal) and Davis (transfer from TCU)
will be our best point guards - so getting NCAA wavers is important as most of you know, but
Bandoumel and Jolly both handled the point well so there won't be a huge drop off if wavers
are not granted. CJ White looked improved and I think he will be a help off the bench.
Everett Ray looked much improved from his freshman year and has recovered from his
injuries. He has taken on a leadership role. He definitely played good defense against
Chaggy. Douglass continued to look like a non-factor. Isaiah Mike looked good and scored
a few alley oop dunks. He continues to play good defense. Young seems to have gained some
confidence and played better than I have seen before. Both freshmen, McBride and Smith
looked athletic with some talent & possible backup point guard material. It will be interesting
to see how they play when they get a chance.

The main takeaway is that we will be much deeper without a big drop off between the first and
second teams. Jasey was in the gymn but did not play that I can remember, but he should make
us even more competitive especially with defense and rebounding.
