I have heard good things about Northweather but who knows he is a big ?

i have doubts that Keita will ever contribute at OU knee injuries in 2020 and 2022 ..
I'm right there with you! Keita has been limited due to injury for several seasons, so I'll be surprised if he ever gets significant minutes/production. I HOPE he does, but if it's been this long already...

Aside from size what does Soars bring to the table? Shooting, scoring is nothing special and low avg assists. Less impressive stats than Bam brought with him last season.

He sucks. Started 32 Games. All that matter are stats.

Oregon is the same as George Washington. Get conf probably is tougher.

Taking sucking players to make 61 sooner mad.

Significantly worse offensively across the board, so unless he is Draymond Green defensively, he is a downgrade. And defensive rankings indicate he isnít as good as Jalen at that end of the floor. I hope he proves me wrong but this seems like a downgrade at the 4 unless he takes a huge step forward.

He averaged 7 and 4. Hill averaged 9 and 5 with more minutes. He isn’t going to start at the 4 either. That was a problem with the team last year. We had a mid major at PF. Now we will have someone similar as a back up.

If Soares is a backup that is a great get. And they arenít similar.

They arenít similar in the way they were deployed but they are similar in skill set. Hill is an embarrassment at the 4 in p5.

He was bad on offense. Scored 0 points against sam Houston state. I called him out as a problem for the season in that game and I was 100% right.

He also couldn’t defend legit power forwards. See osu.we are better off without him as our starting pf.

Respectfully disagree.

He was the primary reason why our 4 out 1 in offense failed. No one covered him on the perimeter because he canít shoot out there. He got swatted inside by legit PFs. Guy is a tweener that doesnít belong as a starting pf in the big 12

Would be nice, but he seems Illinois-bound.

Soars would be a nice add if we didn't have Oweh and Cooper, but we do, so it seems like a strange add. He started all year at Oregon, so I imagine he's not looking to get under 20 minutes a game off the bench. I have to think he's planning to get significant minutes at the 4.

Lol how are you right? He scored 26 against Alabama if you want to use 1 game as an argument. He was 3rd in points, 2nd rebounds, 3rd in fg%, 2nd ft%, and was far and away the best defender. He could definitely defend power forwards and could switch out to point guards. But yeah, he was the problem.

He was the third leading scorer on the team, half a point behind Tanner. His shooting percentage was 10 points better than Sherfield--even given the different positions they played, that's notable. If he had opted to return, he'd be our returning scorer.

But let's compare Soares and Hill: Hill outscored Soares by 2.5 points per game, outshot him from the field (50-43) and from deep (29-27). He got to the line more often than Soares and averaged two more rebounds.

Both Hill and Soares scored in single digits in 18 games. Soares scored 5 or fewer points 14 times (he went scoreless twice). Hill scored five or fewer points 8 times, with just one scoreless outing.

Hill was honorable mention all-conference in the toughest conference in the country; Soares was unmentioned in the Pac 12 all-conference honors.

Untrue.

I hope this guy isnít the starter. I said that in other post. We need quality depth.


But I also know 13 guys arenít gonna play. I know 1-2-3-4 guys are gonna transfer next offseason most likely.
