Bloggin' Rick Rises

Louisville's most famous blogger is back for his first offseason installment, complete with areas where he'd like to see each player improve, a look back at last March's improbable postseason run, and the same surprising "LOL" drops that established him as the best in the biz.

Here's a snippet:

Gorgui Dieng

- Strength and weight gain

-Turning over his right shoulder with low post moves

-3pt shooting- One make per game (have to keep the big fella happy).


Chane Behanan

- Balance on jumpshot. Release out and above head instead of behind his head.

-One on one moves. What we call straight line body to body moves, bullying defense to the basket.

-Defensive footwork


Russdiculous

-Introduce him to passing (lol)

-Improve balance on jumpshot

-Recognize high percentage shots vs. low percentage ones

-Improve his 3pt shooting


Peyton Siva

-Just continue what we started the last month of the season.

-He has made great strides with is technique on jumper.

- Passionate worker!


Luke Hancock

-Rehab until August.

-Move his jumpshot more on right side of head.

-It will take him all of September to regain form.

-Like Peyton, passionate worker!


Zach Price

-Free throw shooting improvement a must

-Arc on jumpshot

-Low post moves, turning over left shoulder

-Passing vs. pressure

-Conditioning is his biggest weakness


Angel Nunez

-Strength

-Defensive footwork

-Like Russdiculous, will introduce him to the art of passing

-Developing consistency with his jumpshot.


Tim Henderson

-Arc on jumper, major key to improvement on his shot.

-Buy him a hair brush so he can brush once a month

-Also passionate worker


Michael Baffour

-AKA (Dark Slime) Don't ask, Russ's nickname.

-Newest walk on from Lexington, will replace the Bullet.

-Have to determine what his best position will be.


Rock and Mike Marra

-Will continue rehab and quickness drills.


Stephan Van Treese

- Like Zach, arc on jumper

- Conditioning

- Turning over right shoulder in low post

I've been saying we have to find a position for Michael Baffour ever since I found out he was on the team 45 seconds ago. Classic Dark Slime.
