Pre-season 2022

You also could argue for Lamp/Raker. Although I think they were half '70s and half '80s. (And Raker arguably was more of a small forward.)

The U-Hall announcer used to love saying “Lee Raker.” Leeeeeeeee RrrrrAAAkeerrrrrrr!

Jerome/Guy and Brogdon/Perrantes is a funny one because it seems clear that Jerome/Guy go ahead because of the Natty. But what if Mamadi missed his shot and Devon made his? The difference between the two groups largely comes down to two plays that their teammates were responsible for.

You could sub in JJ for Raker. JJ played point, Lamp played the 2, and Raker played the 3. Lamp and Raker graduated in '81, JJ in '82.

A big difference though — in those Elite 8 games in 2016 and 2019 … in 2016 - Brogdon played terribly vs Syracuse and London had an uncharacteristic 3 turnovers and 1 assist.
In 2019 - Jerome and Guy played really really well in that game - scoring 49 of the Hoos’ 80 pints and Ty had 7 assists and 1 TO.

Definitely @JoeBoxley the source.

Also, Reece looked ACC POY at last year’s Blue-White scrimmage. Positive sign for sure but coronation will come in the regular season!

I’ve said it before but I think Reece let’s the game come to him a little too much, sort of like Deandre did. Then ever once in awhile he’ll remember he’s the best player on the court and dominate

If you word it right, it’s like we’ve only had one player instead of two in those combos: Wilson Carlisle, Alexander Smith, Reynolds Singletary, and Ty Guy. Heck, let’s add Deane Staples and Clark Beekman to the list.

Cory would find a way to make it say Alexander The Great only

Carlisle?
He got abused by yours truly in slaughter during a sprin intramural game.

So they are posting best-of clips from Italy for each player on the hoops Instagram. Odds on the Ryan Dunn dunk being included?

Taine is up today for those wondering.

I’m really really pulling for that dude this season

Me too but I unfortunately just don’t see it with Taine. Hoping he can be a solid role player but imo that’s his ceiling. Hope I’m wrong though
