I have never figured out why Silva and Kotsar have so much trouble right around the basket. What Silva does is hold the ball until someone knocks it loose or try to hit a fade away from 3 feet. Kotsar just puts too much on the ball and refuses to use the dunk. (or can't jump well enough to dunk it) Neither can seem to time their shot correctly.

Frink does this better than both of them as a true freshman playing in his 3rd game.

Kotsar lacks confidence, imo. It has always been a problem for him and still is. They say he is 6-11 and I hear he can dunk the ball, though I don't recall ever seeing him do it. He seems intimidated by defenders, even if they are shorter than him. Again, no confidence in himself around the rim. He has no post moves, other than reverse layups. As I heard someone say, "Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane."

I admire your resilience as a Gamecock fan, but I get the feeling you don't watch many games. You certainly don't post during the game in the game threads.

If you watched the game last night you would know that we are a terrible basketball team and after 8 games we have not improved much if at all. If Frank Martin is going to turn this team over to the freshmen this will be a long season.

I know you addressed Ace but I will give you my views. I am sure Ace watches most games just as I do. I did not see last night's game as it was not available in my area and I don't know what happened. Apparently we did not play well at all based on the comments I have seen. As for posting in game threads I have never done this and never will do this as my full focus is on the game.

I agree with Ace on our four freshmen. I think all will be very good players and we have yet to see who most people regarded as our 2nd best recruit. This looks like a solid recruiting class but as freshmen they will make their share of mistakes.

If the older guys are not playing well it is fine with me to turn this team over to our freshmen class. The more they play the more this should help us in the long run. Combine this with the return of Minaya and Anderson and Bolden joining the team next year and I think we are fine for the future. I have also heard good things about Hannibal, don't know enough about the big guy to comment on him.

We had a chance to have a good season this year and bring the freshmen along slowly. The chance is still there but the door is closing. Next year we will be without Silva and Gravett. Kotsar and Haase will be our big men. Levesque is a raw talent and not ready to take Silva's place. Frank should have brought in someone like that last year to work behind Silva, but instead he gave a scholarship to Jason Cudd who has shown no improvement. My point is that next year will probably be worse than this year - however this year turns out.

One other point. Visit the basketball recruiting page. How many active threads do you see about men's basketball recruits? There are none, but there are 4 or 5 active threads about women's basketball recruits. That tells me that Frank ain't doing squat about raising the talent level. He can't even out recruit Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn and Alabama. His teams lose to Stony Brook, Wofford and Wyoming.

I find it hard to be optimistic.

Unless someone leaves, we have no scholarships to give for the spring. But, I expect the staff is looking at some guys, in case someone does leave. As for the 2020 class, the only senior next year will be Kotsar. I know the staff is very interested in the two kids from Dorman. Ranked one and two in the state for their class. And a kid from the Columbia area.

As for Cudd, I wonder if he is redshirting this season? I believe Frank said he should have redshirted last season, but didn't. That might be the reason he has not been on the floor more. But I have heard nothing official.

If you had Frank yelling at you and yanking you from the game after every mistake, would you have any confidence?

If Cudd is ever a contributor here we'll be in trouble. He belongs on a mid-tier Big South team.

I agree with you on the season being very disappointing to date but I do blame part of this on the numerous injuries we have had, being short handed on schollie players and being forced to play the freshmen more as a result of this. I disagree on not being optimistic for next season. I think we will be much better.

I like the 4 freshmen I have seen and the one we have yet to see was regarded as our #2 recruit by many. I also like the transfer sitting out this year. Both Kotsar and Hasse are better players than they have shown, especially Hasse who I think will be a fine player for us. He lights it up in scoring in practice and this should also become true once the lights come on at some point. I like Minaya, remember he was playing with a foot injury before his knee went out. Anderson also looks like a very good addition to next year's team and Hannabal to a lesser extent so I am very optimistic on next season and the forseeable future.

As for Cudd I see him transferring to .a small school after this season, maybe even at the semester break.


As for the active recruiting page it is only natural to see more active threads on the better team and the WBB team is that team at this time. As for myself I am much more interested in men's BB.


I also think the semester break will be great for our team. This will give some injuries time to heal and the freshmen can get much more development as we won't have limited practice time since school is not in session.

I think Silva's sub par play might go back to when he had a bad shoulder injury in the pre season. He is a much better player than he has shown as we have seen over the past 3 years.
