If you are more athletic, it holds you back on your shooting. Why practice 3s non-stop when you can take it to the rim or score inside. That is why guys like Carrera had to learn over time. If we make shooting priority #1, then our D/rebounding/ball handling will suffer because of a lack of athletes.

GAMEKEM nailed it - for everyone that laughs at Frank's statement on having his best shooting team, it was actually pretty accurate. Booker, Myers, Holden (if he had been healthy), Haase, and Minaya were all additions to the team that can shoot. Plus we returned Gravett, and at the time of the statement, it looked like we would get Rah back also. And Silva/Kotsar were much improved as shooters last year. What we lacked was Frank's usual soul-crushing D and the ballhandlers needed to get our shooters high-percentage open looks.

Frank has addressed that by adding three Guards that will improve the ballhandling, but also have size and athleticism, which will improve the D.

Add Bowen to the returnees and newbies, and next year WILL be Frank's best shooting team.

Right. Good PG play is critical to getting good shots. As we all know PG play was not there last year. Anyone who knows BB knows this. Frank certainly does as he has gone all out to solve this problem.

Despite some of Frank's critics in here one thing is certain. Frank knows BB as any of his peers and national announcers will tell you. In 2 of his last 3 years he has given USC two of our best years ever, yet some want to jump him because we did not do as well last year. Two of the main reasons were the Holden injury and Felder not playing. Another was PJ leaving a year before he should have.

Players who stay the course under Frank turn out to be good players. Those leaving his program early usually don't do well elsewhere. We are blessed to have Frank as our coach. He took over an awful program and advanced us to two great years and the best is yet to come.

If Silva and Bowen are back we are really going to be good next season. Even without them I think we will be a much improved team and I think Frank is going to bring in his best class ever next year.

Regarding all the recent hubbub concerning Martin's so called lack of recruiting prowess, we are so close to having two Top 30 5* players on the roster. I hope things all work out in our favor, because I am tired of the letdowns of so many close calls.

He has a top 2 for the 2 spots, and backups if he misses. That is as it should be; I would be disappointed if he did not.

I just want him to hit on #1 and #2 this time and not have to resort to Plan B or C.

Frank was in a great mood when he said he was expecting good news. He knows something we don't know. We can only guess. My guess, the good news is about one or more of the following: Bowen, Felton and Burns. I would gladly welcome any of this trio.

AJ Lawson must be one of the guys he was referring to.

2019 G out of Canada. 4 star on 247. He is OV here June 1st. Potential for 2018 reclassification.

AJ Lawson was on the same team this year with Kaosi Ezeagu. AJ Lawson was potentially the #1 player in Canada for 2019. This could be great news.

It would throw a little bit of a wrench into that argument for sure, especially if we get Burns on board as well. And I do feel better with Burns after Ezeagu didn't come here because I think if our staff felt it was in a bad spot with Burns he would have had a commitable offer and be a Gamecock today.
