Wide open layups don't get missed my SEC calibur 7'3" guys.

I didn’t watch the game but why isn’t a 7’3 guy dunking the ball if he truly has a wide open lay up?

That's an even better question. It was right there for the taking.

Justin Smith hid the vanover weakness.

Yup. He's a missing piece that we just couldn't afford to miss.

His vertical jump is only 6"

He reminds me of Alan Bannister, the 7'4" guy who played at ASU in the late 80s.
Bannister was thicker so harder to push around, but equally un-athletic. When he held a beer can in his hand you literally couldn't see the can.

Comment made on TV last night about Vanover wanting a sports car, but would have to take out the front seat... Bannister had a Camaro where he did something similar.

Smith it turns out was likely the ONE guy we could not lose during this part of the schedule... probably even more-so than Moody.

After playing 28 games at Findlay Prep he averaged 8.3 ppg 6.4 rbs and 1.5 blocks.

He still seems weak and timid, not what we need in SEC play. Smith is definitely a better prospect for the league we play in.

Long term our best rotation will be Jaylin williams at the 5 and Justin Smith at the 4 with Desi, Moses, and Jalen Tate making up our backcourt.

EDIT: I think guys like Conner, JD, Devo, and Vance will be better off the bench.

Smith looks like Julius Peppers.

Vanover looks like a Gulag inmate...


For those thinking he's going to get more aggressive.. That's not going to happen. He's obviously just a timid player. That doesn't get out of your blood.

It took Pau Gasol a decade and Kobe riding him like a jockey to get even a shred of tenacity, and Vanover ain't Gasol.

Because his legs can barely get him off the ground. He can't jump quickly. He has to prep and launch every single time.
