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:
- 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).
- 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.
-Introduce him to passing (lol)
-Improve balance on jumpshot
-Recognize high percentage shots vs. low percentage ones
-Improve his 3pt shooting
-Just continue what we started the last month of the season.
-He has made great strides with is technique on jumper.
- Passionate worker!
-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!
-Free throw shooting improvement a must
-Arc on jumpshot
-Low post moves, turning over left shoulder
-Passing vs. pressure
-Conditioning is his biggest weakness
-Like Russdiculous, will introduce him to the art of passing
-Developing consistency with his jumpshot.
-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
-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
- 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.
