lmao. Maybe frank should be more enamored with star ratings because once the two highest rated recruits he ever got left we lost all the momentum we had been building in basketball

Here is a full game, a state semi final game played on March 16th. He scored 23 pts, FG's 8-8, FT's 6-6, 3pt 1-1. Pat Ewing was in the house and offered him after the game. Frink is #20. His championship game is Sunday.

Better hope Bowen is eligible or we will be playing for a NIT bid. Everyone in the SEC outside of SC and Ole Miss are recruiting high level players.

We were an NCAA team this year with decent point guard play. We will be improved there, with or without Bowen.

Eight newcomers this year and no true PG. Frank has the type of players that he can win with - with more experience. And a PG.

We are not a NCAA Team without Bowen. We will battle to be one with him. The SEC is not going to be down like it has been. I said at the beginning of this year this Team was not a NCAA Team and we weren't. Without Bowen we will not be a NCAA Team next year.

There will be many roster changes on all of the SEC teams between now and next season. And even when we know who each team will have, it will be difficult to predict who will win which games. There are too many variables to make accurate predictions.

Honestly we weren't too far off this year, if we had a half decent point guard then we could have easily won a handful of games. Illinois state, Texas Tech, Ole Miss, MSU twice, Tennessee twice, Arkansas and Auburn are all games we could have definitely won if had a decent PG to set up our players and take care of the ball. If we had won even half of those games you're talking about a 22-11 team with some decent wins. I think even with no Bowen we could potentially be a NCAAT bubble team if we can get at least one reliable PG.

If you're being honest we were Rah Felder or any competent PG away from playing for an NCAA Tournament berth this past year. We've gone over the multitude of bad luck deals we had last year from PJ leaving early to Rah getting suspended to Holden the guy who many thought would lead the team in scoring never getting healthy, all that with being 1 player away. That was on a year with more depth than the SEC has ever had AND we played arguably the hardest in-conference match ups with two match ups with the top 3 seeds plus the 5 seed during the regular season.

Frank develops players and the guys that stick around for four years turn out to be really good. We just did not have any guys that had been around very long - one third year guy in Silva and two 2 second year guys in Gravett and Kotsar. Were you bad-mouthing guys like Thornwell and Carrera when they were not stars as Freshmen? They turned out pretty good, huh?

The light seemed to come on for Kotsar at the end of the year - he was more effective with his drives and his shooting improved, both the short jumpers and free throws. He will team with Silva to give us one of the better inside tandems in the SEC, and Haase/Cudd will be able to give more quality minutes as back-ups. We will be very strong inside.

Even if Bowen does not play, we have a future star at the SF position with Minaya. But Bowen should play.

Rah gives a true PG and Gravett will be better in his second year at the position PG.

The weak link figures to be the SG position - Beatty and an inexperienced Couisnard are not great options (yet). But even if they are not ready, we could still get Holden back, Bowen/Minaya/Gravett/Hinson can all play some SG, and there will be plenty of Grad Transfer options. We will be fine.

And an easy NCAA team. Think about all of the close games that we could not close out at the end - the reason for that was inexperience. That will not be as much of an issue next year.

Holden left on his own accord, likely out of frustration of his physical injuries. So I'm sure Holden will be free to come back at anytime if he wants to barring that there's an open spot on the roster.

Holden is still in school and Frank was the one that shut him down. He was more concerned with his long-term future than with him playing basketball in the short term, even if it benefitted the team.

If he sticks around and gets his head and health back together, he could come back for next year. Unlikely but still possible.

Jamie Shaw said we were in good shape with Frink. He’s the PF we have really lacked.

He also said we were in good shape with a high profile transfer.
