I was really impressed by Goodwin, a 6'3 or 6'4 guard who averages over 10 boards a game and can almost score at will. As it turns out he was ranked #55 by ESPN in his senior year. That's a big get for SLU. As a comparison, Tre was ranked #74. That's a big get for us. :D

Goodwin is a terrific basketball player. He is also a pretty garbage human and if he was #255 instead of #55 he would be playing at a different school right now.

STLToday wrote: Three women accused the four of sexual assault in late September. The players were allowed to practice throughout the preseason and regular season, but Goodwin was the only player to play in games. SLU officials have not said why that decision was made.
4 players accused of sexual assault... The highest ranking one is the only one that remained on the team and was allowed to re-enroll at the school.

Seeing Chris Lowe in TF’s staff made me wonder where Dante MiIlligan was. He’s an Asst. at NYU after spending time on TF’s staff.

^ Is this the "soft as summer rain" game? Clutch shot by Pierre to get the win.

^ Just watched the second half. Yes, it is.

What a joy watching Tre, especially knowing you will win. :)

I just Emailed the guys I went to the game with. I remembered that Tre had a big 2nd half but I forget his halves were 2/22. I'm trying not to over-hype myself for this year (I pray we have a this year) but we should be a lot better offensively.

East is the only guy we lost who had skills on offense. The other guys were all about hustle, playing hard and defense. That's fine, but it put too much pressure on Tre to give us 20+ per game. We've already hashed out the "if's" on the new guys, the return of Weeks and the potential improvement of Walker so no need to do it again. I'll be happy to if anyone asks. :lol:
