i hope for us but i could see an OSU pull, i liked the way Boyton's team played last year vs an unknown situation at OU....the sell is be the next Cade Cunningham....which is not realistic but "realism" isn't how these things work.

Boyton showed me a lot last year, his teams played hard....he got good shots or a layup against us when had to run half court sets, went to the boards hard on both ends.

he beat the national champions.

that could be a strong sell.

I know the coaches
I can shoot 20 times a game

Going to be a really interesting announcement.
Is he good enough to be a 1st round pick after another year? If so the both Tulsa and osu can make sense.

He’s “the guy” do he’d get full open to make his name. At OU he’ll be in a system so maybe not “the guy”.

Just a thought

I can’t envision a scenario where he is a first round pick a year from now regardless of where he goes.

Needs two years ... but he's got the tools to work himself into the lottery.

Juan Patillo's probably a good comparable. Athletic, good hands, attacks the rim, does not have elite ball skills. He's a little taller than Patillo and a better shooter, but probably lacks a little of Juan's quickness.

Unreal coaching staff Moser has assembled! I like Patrick’s connections overseas. That might be a viable option to counter the local bagmen. Although bagmen are probably not constrained by players being overseas with the Xbox payments and such.

Future looks bright! Hopefully BT rounds this thing out!

If we land Mawein, I don't think there is ANY doubt we've substantially upgraded our inside game.

T. Groves / Chargois / Mawein >>> Manek / Kuath / Iwuakor

Still have J. Groves and Hill that are small/stretch 4's as well.

SUBSTANTIALLY UPGRADED is right! I never thought I would see the day when our front court would be equal to or stronger than our backcourt.

If he can score, that's wonderful. But I hope he's the type of guy who brings the things every night when scoring can come and go... defense/rebounding, physicality, and mental toughness.

Why do you always look at the offensive side of things when you talk about positions?

It's more about what you can defend and simply who you are on the court with. In today's basketball, offensive positions are almost non-existent. Teams frequently play 4, sometimes even 5 guards. I'd think Mawein would be the 4 MOST of the time (playing along side T. Groves or Chargois). But I could see him being the 5 at times playing alongside J. Groves or Hill. Depends on a host of factors. It's okay to have a 5 that can play outside on offense.
