Offseason Edition: UT Basketball discussion
Let's get this rolling boys. It almost feels like a season long thread with this team and staff has to be mandatory. I'm still on cloud 9 after Saturday's win. VOLS and Lady VOLS knock off #1 Gonzaga & #12 @Texas on the same weekend

The win over the Zags is up there all time for me with Kansas 2010, Memphis 2008 and the W over OSU * Game 3 with UK in 2019* to make it to that Elite 8 appearance. Schofield's performance was legendary af

I had only seen 3 of the 8 or so games so far, and was really wondering where Schofield had gone. I felt like he was our best player when it mattered most last year. He absolutely went off in that second half though and reminded me who he can be when it matters.

The Gonzaga game was eerily similar to the Kansas game but this Schofield was back to his normal self. In some ways, the experience of losing to Kansas probably helped us win against Gonzaga.

Also, I think it fired Admiral up that one of the Gonzaga players was talking so much smack to him. I think that was even mentioned after the game that it motivated him a lot.

Schofield and William's are going to mess around and go down as some of the all time greats before they leave UT.. for me at least. Maybe not at the top of the list, but close. The way Barnes has developed our roster is nothing short of a miracle.

The BasketVOLS are really exciting this season. I'm hoping the last game of the season (@ Aubie) doesn't matter because we have trashed the rest of our schedule. Every game looks winnable at this point, with many, even in SEC play, looking like gimmes (knock on wood). We need something to get excited about in regards to VOLS athletics.

I’m goin to the game Saturday in Membabwe


I fully expect it to be a nail biter, Memphis is gonna play the game of their life, we are gonna be on a high from beating Gonzaga, finals week being a distraction, and most importantly I’m gonna be there....

Norvell was definitely talking a bunch of shite to Admiral all night. He started it and Scho finished it

Update on Lamonte's health from VQ

quote:

Turner did a lot of 5-on-5 work today, first time that's happened in weeks. 

Would guess there's a good chance he plays Saturday based on that.

Here's a great article from The Ringer written about Admiral and Grant, the matchup vs Gonzaga and how well the VOLS are playing right now. This might be the most complimentary article I've ever read on UT hoops from a non UT writer. Check this out and read it in full if you guys get a chance.

Good news on DJ Burns from the Warroom post on VQ. He's on the same S&C path that Admiral and Grant took on to become more lean and is a legit 6'9-6'10 with soft hands and a nice touch (pause) -- Rob Lewis seems to be very high on his potential for us after his RS year.

Jordan Bowden looking a lot better after being benched for Pons in the starting 5. Averaging 10 ppg since coming off the bench and was a big factor for the W over Gonzaga with those 2 critical 3's when the game seemed like it could get away.

Lamonte was practicing full contact yesterday & looks like he will be ready to play this weekend vs Memphis.

Just hoping Lamonte can get back in last year's form. We will need that bench production if we want to seriously contend and push into the tourney.

He's a game changer when he's feeling it. If him and Bowden can get hot at the same time I'd lose my shite What ever happened to his shoulder anyway?

He's had two surgeries already, but they said its still a problem for him that started getting bad again in November. Hate it for him and hate it for the BasketVOLS.
