Dude needs minutes from here on out! No matter what is going on he needs to play. Spangler is hurt or worn out. Cut his minutes down and lets build of this.

Great game and again I'm not too upset. We have 2 losses and both I think make me feel better about this team which is weird, but these games show we can play anywhere and with anyone.

As his confidence grows he will give as an added dimension on offense. I think he has a quicker first step than most fours that will guard him. Eventually we will be able to isolate him and let him get to the rim.

He played well and was not a liability when playing in a very tough environment against a good team. He earned more playing time.

He was a liability?

I think he accidentally put him on the wrong side of the ledger. He has played very well the past 2 games and we needed him both times.

Buford and James really have done well for us the last 2 games. Gotta really hope they continue their growth so our guys can get some rest. Love their potential.

I'm glad to see him start to get things figured out. He was the one I was most looking forward to out of the new guys at the beginning of the year. I hope this game is the starting point of constant solid contribution from him.

He played really well tonight. His offense is going to be there on most nights and he will eventually learn the defensive side (switching, movement, etc.) as he gets more playing time.

1 thing I really wish Buford would concentrate on is defensive rebounding. He has the ability to really make an impact there, he has a thicker body then both Lattin and Spangler and could really create some space there if he committed to it with his athleticism.

Great game by Dante. He's going to be huge down the stretch. I love his aggressiveness around the basket. About the only thing keeping him from major minutes is defense and rebounding. If he cleans that side of the ball up even a little he'll be a key piece to OU's run in March.

I hope he can drive some and score in the post. If he could perfect one post move and improve that drive, he will be a very good offensive player.

I'm very confident he can get to the rim, his first step looks really quick to me.

Yes, he can, and with authority. Dante can be good down low when he figures everything out. He'll get there in time. This game has to be a huge confidence builder for him.

He has already shown that. I want to see one post move. If he adds that to his game, he will be a very good offensive player because the defenders will have to come out to the Bree point line, he can exploit bat to get low post position on his defender. His drive will make it difficult to defend him with the ball on the three point line.

I think he is going to be a big part of the team next season.

Default Buford

Really happy to see this kid break out a little. I know it was a loss but a lot of good came out of this game. Cousins was on the attack and fantastic all game. Buddy was Buddy but we need better shot selection at times. Buford has stepped up in the last 2 games and I think that's huge. He was really aggressive and confident in his game. AK also affected the game. James was aggressive. They just need to keep on coming on and we'll turn around at a point this season with a really solid 9 man deep rotation.
