Default Sindarius Thornwell and PJ Dozier

I wonder if a better job can be done to get their names known on a national level. They are both great players and I think it would help raise USC's national profile if we better exploited their stardom and NBA potential. I wonder what forms that would take but I would assume more social media post about them from our university and local media. Winning games and getting ranked of course will also increase their and USC's recognition but it is never too soon to work outlets into grassroots campaigns and building hype.

Good performances in the NCAA and SEC Tournament would do it.

January 18th and 21st. Home against UF and @UK. If they want to get noticed find a way to beat both. Even just a W against UF and a really close game @UK would raise their stature a bit. But you find a way to beat both and the media is talking us up in a big way and those two would be getting lots of the attention.

Keep winning I think in all honesty. We usually hit some funks in conference if we can avoid those and get ranked again then I think mission accomplished here.

Default Re: Sindarius Thornwell and PJ Dozier

I apologize if this question seems odd-I think is important to try to capitalize on having good players excel here and use the momentum generated to get other very good players to take more serious looks at joining our programs. Nothing succeeds like success and being a winning program is 80% of the solution. I just hope that outside of winning we are also doing everything we can to talk up this team, these guys and how future stars can find success and national recognition at a place like South Carolina.

The biggest way to do it would be after this season Dozier jumps to the NBA and is taken in the lottery. It would show top players who think they are 1 and done or 2 and done that we can put them into the lottery and give Frank more ammo. It would be one of those things that would hurt us next year but help us long term.

Just gotta keep winning. Social media posts dont help if there isnt any traffic and traffic is driven by winning. Today was a good start being on national tv int he middle of the afternoon. Need more games like that. SEC Network BS doesnt get the job done.

On top of that, when the team has those games the fans have to show up. TV will stop coming if the stands are empty.

Why in the world would he jump there this year when he could be a top 10 draft pick even next year?

Because of how the NBA contracts are set up. Unlike the NFL your money is capped by your number of years in the league. Getting into the NBA a year earlier starts that clock sooner. Also if he starts getting projected around the lottery the money difference isn't that big between let's say 8 and 18.

Fan attendance doesn't drive tv exposure, winning does. Attendance helps our home court advantage and we draw very well when we win. If we win at UT on Wednesday, we will likely have a near sellout on Saturday at home. Nothing increases our home basketball attendance than big road wins.

A little off topic, but a sell out would help football recruiting with OVs in the stands. Some real needs coming in the next few weeks.

They're less likely to broadcast a game on national tv when the stands are half empty and the croud is boring. Its part of the equation, all be it a very small part.

It's a stretch to say PJ is great. Nevertheless, stars are born every year at tournament time. It's pretty much up to PJ and Sin to make themselves known with their play.

I have no doubt that Sin is going to ball out. However I have a feeling that PJ's back is still bothering him, so it will be interesting to see how he plays.
