Joe Dooley won the ASUN regular season conference title for the second straight year in 2018. They start the conference tourney Monday night.
Always happy to see former KU coaches do well!
Is it possible the big guys are playing a bit soft to avoid fouls, hence fewer rebounds? Given that the big guys spent a lot of time on the bench in the first half, it had to impact rebounding.
If Preston can return, those numbers should change (I would hope)…

What am I missing?
I have almost no doubt that Self will massacre the league and make a tournament run with RS JR Agbaji, JR Braun, JR McBride and whoever else is added to that future roster.
Who are you and what have you done with @BShark ?
He had a great game for Ukraine, scoring 22 points and helping to defeat previously unbeaten Spain!
@JayHawkFanToo , it should be an interesting matchup for Clay Young, also!
There are articles and comments today regarding the “fun”the team was having. Newman had 8 points in the 1st 6 or so minutes and opened up his personality. Svi was his usual “all business” demeanor. Doke never smiles, like this is a lot of work! Looks like Devonté tries to have fun but carries the weight of the team on his shoulders. From a (very) high level, the team looks really stressed. Can HCBS get these guys to have fun yet play efficiently? Personally, I’d like to see more smiles and arm waving.
I hope the next trough hits against Ft Hays in our next pre-season…
I doubt Dave starts this year after his suspension. Braun really seized the opportunity.
Dave needs minutes and confidence to prepare for next year. Thoughts?
Just curious as to y’all’s thoughts, but Big Dave needs playing time to prepare for next year. If he doesn’t start, he will only get time as a sub for Doke, when HCBS goes with 2 bigs or when KU is in a blowout.
Doke needs to play for his value to the team and his Pro development.
IMHO, Self is starting 2 bigs to get Dave court time. KU needs him next year and starting him is his development time.
