    Unless there is a significant dip in talent between starters and reserves...i dont know why more schools dont commit to uptempo style. especially schools that dont get "top 100s"

    I don’t either. We had a niche in a very small pool. Konkol came in here saying we would maintain that identity. We haven’t. That is my biggest problem with him. He hasn’t kept his word and we have no identity.

    I think uptempo and press is the way to go. Itís excting basketball that people come to see (yeah I know our attendance is way up this year).

    But uptempo also evens the field against more slow down teams. But as others have said if your starters and bench are comparable, play uptempo and rotate frequently.

    Re: 2018-2019 Roster

    I would like to see a couple of more contributors, since we have 2 schlorships left. I probably should be happy that it appears they are placing a value on them.

    If we canít find anybody now, hold them for the fall and avoid having a class of one for 2019 Freshmen.

    Yea he can't seem to force himself to do it. Seems contrary to his understanding of "good basketball". I've often wondered if his "press" is a weak nod to the fan base that he trying.

    Get turnovers, dunk the ball. I just said something similar in football. It applies across the board: we should be playing the most aggressive and exciting brand of whatever sport. And as much as the AD should stay out of coaching, it needs to be understood by every new hire.

    Amen. In Football TECH almost invented the forward pass. Not so much anymore...

    In furtherance of TD123ís point about excitement, if Konkol canít stomach the press, do the next best thing and implement a suffocating 2/3 zone on occasion.

    Re: 2018-2019 Roster

    Added the McNeese Transfer. 1 Scholarship available.

    After this season, we look to be way top heavy with upperclassmen, so they may
    hold the last one until the Fall.

    Re: 2018-2019 Roster

    To recap: on opening day in November, we had 1 Senior and a Full Roster.

    Signed Stacey Thomas (HS) in November as Boykins Replacement, so we were full up for Fall, 2018.

    December - Jalen Harris (SO) transfers (Nevada)

    April - Joniah White (JR) retires due to medical issues
    Jy'lan Washington (JR) transfers/leaves for parts still unknown
    Harrison Curry (JR) transfers/leaves for parts unknown having scored 1 point in his 6 minute career at TECH

    April/May signed

    Armstrong Ojnkwu (JR)
    Rashawn Langston (JR)
    Kalob Ladoux (SO)

    As much as I have been irked at times, I don't envy this staff.

    College basketball fans have gone from "if we don't stop this transfer culture it will be free agency every summer" to "it's free agency every summer"

    Re: 2018-2019 Roster

    I think it's time coaches adapt recruiting approaches. Maybe a team chock full of transfers is actually more stable than a team chock full of hs signees. A transfer on average is less liky to transfer again (I'd think).
