Kur/Merritt/Alondes...How concerned are you with these 3 guys after the exhibition game?

Kur was the biggest surprise since he's been with the team, but maybe just jitters and he hasn't played a game in over a year. Alondes will find his footing I believe. I don't expect anything from Merritt this year, so that's not a concern of mine.

Definitely going to need Kur more imo, especially if Hill keeps playing this well.

  • Kur Kuath had 2 points
  • Corbin Merritt played 2 minutes
  • The bench scored 23 points... That means the primary starters were heavily relied on just to win the game. Starters had to stay in the game and score about 70 points.

Were there bright spots? Sure? Harmon looked great, Hill looked good, and Manek played like you would expect Manek to play against Southeastern Oklahoma. I am positive Harmon is going to be a really good player, but lets not forget he was facing off against Adam Dworsky. Who is a 5'10'' math major playing point guard, and a 6'5'' forward put up 25 points and 7 rebounds on team that is supposedly big, athletic, strong, etc... Those stats wouldn't matter if the game wasn't competitive. If OU won by 35 or something it wouldn't matter.

But I see a lot of risk of more scholarship players unable to contribute in a meaningful way again, no defense, bad rebounding, etc. Those are the things that have plagued Kruger teams these last few years.
tap the breaks man. We've looked terrible before in exhibitions. GIve it a couple real games before the doom and gloom

I've been concerned about Merritt since we signed him. I don't think he ever sees the floor.

My less than cheery attitude could be in part because I am under the weather.

Perhaps it made me grumpy.

Hard to take much away from an exhibition game in October. The team is young, but should be pretty good by Mid-December.
