This is what highlights should be.. pick and pop for 3.. drive and finish.. mid-range game.. like Offseason said.. he wont beat you by jumping higher.. he will beat you with skill. It also sounds like this year he really started to come into his own.. please sign him this weekend!!

If for some reason this doesn't come to fruition, I will be so devastated that there won't be enough alcohol in Western Mass to fix things. That's a sad state of affairs and it shows the level of fandom for some of us, myself included.
I've got a lot of wine stored up, and will be draining bottles if this all falls apart.
You're in the right spot for good wine. Anywhere near the Russian River Valley? They make great Pinot Noir in that region.

Marin County.. quick drive into Napa/Sonoma although usually my drive doesn't get past Trader Joe's or Costco :)

Oh, man, it's gonna be one big happy family. Or one big family, anyway. Or one big something.

p.s. Tre seems like a natural PF, so the line-up with both him and Jalen is realistic and elite.
Len, a week or so ago when suggested they would be a great PF & C tandem you said you didn't want both. Why now? :wink:

Nothing special, but Bergeron keeps dropping subtle messages, which is a good thing:

^ The opponent is Montverde Academy, a BB powerhouse from FL. Check out their website. Recent grads are Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and that Kyrie guy.

I think the 2 guys Mitchell is going against are 7-1 Koprivica, a 4* player going to FL State and Precious Achiuwa, the #12 player in the country. Kind of hard to tell from their photos, but they are on the roster.

Kyrie did not go to Montverde. He did play for Kevin Boyle who is the coach at Montverde

If you haven't seen the highlights from the hoophall, it shows the kind of game Tre has.. I'm pretty sure the kid he was going against is going to Gonzaga so it's not some 6'3 high school kid.
I saw TM last year and he had the hands and feet that you see in that video but he wasn’t tough or aggressive...would float out to the perimeter as the game got competitive. This year it’s the opposite, he goes and gets the ball, he goes to the rim etc. Watch games this weekend and you will see that the winning time of the games are still won around the rim...he has that ability and will be able to do it in the A10 from the start.
I realize that was a highlight tape but it wasn’t about dunks and flashy plays that happen few times a game, if that. His highlights are about doing things that help win games:
He is never in a rush which helps the other 4 players get into the spots they are supposed to be.
He always looks when he catches the ball before committing himself to a move...this cuts down on turnovers and gives him time to not only find a cutter or open 3 pt shooter but also to use his footwork properly to get his man off balance.
There is a play on that tape where he throws a high-low pass to a teammate for an easy hoop...one game I was at this year he hit Matt Cross with that pass 3 times in the first half.
You can run an offense thru him and be sure it goes all the way through.
He is not going to wow you with athleticism but he was matched up with a top 40 junior this year(who I think will play in the NBA) who is a great athlete and he picked him apart with his skill...made him look like a jv player as Tony mentioned. What he was ultimately saying is that many top ranked kids are there based on potential and TM is about production...production>potential
I was watching LSU and he reminds me a lot of a there PF Naz reid who is probably more flashy than him but can stretch out to three bang in the post and play in the middle. I think our lineup could look very similar to LSU current setup

Man, I like Tony Bergeron already. Just like me, he wants to watch games anywhere other than The Hangar. Get it done McCall! Let's Go!

Serious question, are you still wondering if TB, TM and TW are coming to UMass?

Won't feel comfortable until UMass has signed Letters of Intent in hand.
