We don't have good passers to the post. Lopez and skylar are really the only ones that can, and that's a bad sign. Yemi passes better than our pg

Thought Reese showed some good flashes tonight passing into the post.

The problem is he gets double or triple teamed constantly. Attack the boards, the points will follow.

Yes he did. Looks like he has a good feel for the game, especially a freshman off of injury. If he can stretch the d, and mcbee can find his stroke, the floor should open up for everybody. But if I see the film, I make him put it on the floor. Don't know if he has a post game or if he can handle the ball and take his man.
Don't know whats up with Edwards, unless its D related. And I haven't liked Chievous, who kindof spazzes out.

Martin said that Yemi has the IQ of a point guard on the defensive end.

He does a lot of little things, not just the rebounds and charges. Even things as simple as coming to the ball when someone is in trouble, rather than just standing and watching.

I really think he looks more comfortable in the pick and roll than posting up with his back to the basket.

Yemi is an extremely smart player, especially defensively. Having only played the game for three years in the states, his relative understanding of it is impressive. If his offense comes around to the level of his defense, he will be a really nice accidental find by this staff. Ironic, as offense usually comes more naturally and defense takes longer.

What from? Didn't hear that.

Read that Miller still hasn't come back from knee surgery. I'd say he's done for the year along with Maymon. I hope Maymon comes back.

Haven't seen details but spotted his fingers bandaged up and in a splint.
