    Default GDT: Shrine Game @ Frost Jackrabbits vs Alabama State Hornets

    At least the defense picked up in the second half. Without that, we might have had to sweat this one out. Iím glad AL St broke out that zone and played it well.

    The bench looked better than Tuesday and they get another tune-up game next week before the difficulty picks up. Thereís definitely some potential there. I loved those O King assists.

    True, I have heard many people say it now.

    As time goes on, there is going to have to be some scoring off the bench. Hopefully Arians will settle into that role with some more experience. Have been surprised that Krueger hasn't seen any action yet. He is supposed to be a good perimeter shooter.

    Yeah the zone definitely bothered them... but they got some good looks against it. Had a nice little alley oop to Daum that he mishandled, and he also missed an open layup cutting across the lane. And also missed some pretty wide open 3's from several guys... it was in my opinion, after they had missed those open looks that they started struggling a bit... got into their own heads.

    Just something to work on. Agree that Ariens and King looked more comfortable out there. Would like to see Ariens continue to pull the trigger when he's open... you could see him pass up some looks after he missed a couple. But that will come.

    Was very impressed with the young big guys, Dentlinger looked solid again, and you can see the potential in Alou Dillon.

    Owen King has a "bounce" to his step... you can tell that he has really only scratched the surface of what he's going to be.

    First game of the year for me last night and liked a lot of what I saw from the Jacks.

    Skyler Flatten- How fun is it to see him out there being aggressive and being a leader on the floor. His athletic potential is through the roof. It took him a while to get to that point but I'm glad he did. He is going to be a beast this year! You can tell he is having fun.
    The athleticism of the freshman is fantastic. All of them. They just need to get comfortable on the court. Dentlinger and Dillon will be huge assets inside. Both have the braun to hold their own. Dillon had an amazing rebound late in the game and REFUSED to let three defenders get their hands on the ball, more of that nattiness please! Dentlinger is physical and has a really nice touch around the basket. Owen King really impressed me handling the ball and pulled off some crazy good passes. The players on the receiving end of them were looking for them too so you know he must be doing it routinely. He is going to be fun to watch. Looking forward to seeing him shoot and drive more as time goes on. Tevin King had a typical hard nosed game. David Jenkins had a tough night offensively but that is one player we don't have to worry about. He will come out firing on Saturday. Just didn't get anything to fall and had the assignment on their best scorer.

    Wish I could have seen the game against GCU. Last night there was definitely some sloppy play. We went for 7 minutes without scoring at one point. With that many new faces in there you have to expect some of that early on in the season. You have to be excited about the team overall. Not only because of the veterans but the athleticism of the entire team is going to be fun. There will no doubt be some ups and downs in non=conference but they will be tough to beat in conference.

    Get to Frost and watch these guys play. You will not be disappointed!

    SUPERBUNNY
    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, BIZUN!!!

    Meant to mention this before because I get asked about it alot: Michael Carter, the transfer from Washington, is very much on the team. Right now TJ is choosing not to have him on the bench during games.

    Agree with everyone that Owen King had a much better game. Had some dare I say Nate-like passes last night. Would like to see him shoot it a little, he air balled one bad in the exhibition and has looked tentative to shoot since. Same thing with Arians. They are here for a reason and they'll get some to fall.

    Did anyone else think that team was sneaky chippy? Thought our guys kept their cool and didn't even subtly retaliate
