Thought it was a pretty entertaining brand of basketball. BC still likes to chuck it, but they actually play with energy on defense now, which is refreshing.

The one thing that still bothers me is the perimeter defense. At the end of that game you knew Wake was going to take quick 3's to get back into it and BC was just happy to sit back and give them uncontested.

Holding out to see if the letting three pointers go sticks around against other teams. I think most teams playing awake will let them shoot. I think they were last in the ACC in three point percentage last year.

Agreed. Let them shoot.

One time in three, Wake will hit it. Two times in three, BC gets an easy rebound, immediately hand off to the best shooting guard and get fouled. BC just needs to get better at the charity stripe. 63% is just not going to do it.

One time in three from three is one time in two from two, Costco.

Explain it to 2001eagle: how did this come about?

Camby was the best high school basketball player I ever saw.

According to a comment under one of AJ Black's tweets, Kamari is his nephew. I have no idea if that's true.

As the people that actually watched the game can confirm, it is true. He is related to Walt. This occurred during the 10 minutes Camby was on the broadcast in a BC shirt and sweatshit while Malcolm Huckaby waxed prolific about Walt schooling him in the NBA, and Camby and Huckaby bonded as the only two good CT hoop players not named Vin Baker.

This was also the same period of time that the NBA alumni team got 8+ minutes of run and squandered half the lead.

I thought Hopkins said thanks but no thanks because he thought he was Boeheim's heir apparent at the time

No... wanted the BC job badly. When it was clear he wasn't getting it, Cuse gave him the coach-in-waiting title. He then took the UDub job when offered.

Killer mistake. We would have been in tournament multiple times with Hopkins by now I suspect.

Hopkins turned down BC because he thought he was about to be Cuse's head coach. Cuse gave him the official coach in waiting title a year LATER when Boeheim recruited his own kid. There had been a belief Boeheim was about to step down and Hopkins would succeed, but Boeheim said he wanted to coach his son and that added 5 years to the clock. The coach in waiting tag was to try to convince Hopkins to stay. It failed as Hopkins was unwilling to wait Boeheim out, and Washington snatched him up. Would Hopkins have gone to BC if our opening was the year he moved? No one knows
