Well...that's the first video I've seen of Amardi, outside of the promo on CTV. That kid has yeast in his shoes!!
I added K.J. Bluford to the list.
Northeast Community College - NJCAA Stats
Men's College Basketball - Athletics - Northeast Community College, Nebraska
Looks like he is averaging
39% from 2 pt range,
attempting 4.9 2 pt field goals per game
making 1.9 2 pt field goals per game
39% from 3 pt range
attempting 10.3 3 pt field goals per game
making 4.0 3 pt field goals per game
73% from the free throw line
attempting 3.3 free throws per game
making 2.4 free throws per game
32% of his overall shots are from 2 pt range
68% of his overall shots are from 3 pt range
I'm wondering how this will effect Dorsey-Walker's and Thomas' minutes considering he will be playing SG like both of them. I'm assuming that he will be taking the majority of the minutes from Dorsey-Walker.
Thanks nallen for the Buford info. Really appreciate you, Dryburn, and the others for keeping this thread going.
From the explanation, Bluford is going to fill McGee's roll, probably as 6th or 7th man. Obviously anything can happen but that's what I expect to see. Maybe Armadi, Bluford & SDW are first off the bench. Who knows. I hope Armadi improves enough to earn a spot and we can play a little bigger next season but then again, the thought of not having Niang on the floor to start seems impossible.
Does anyone else think Edozie might red-shirt next year? Amardi has to play next year since he will be a RS Senior. So we will have Percy and Amardi at C, Niang and Ejim at PF. Also if we play small Hogue is 6'6 and could play the PF if we play small similar to when Clyburn plays PF this year.
Red-shirting Edozie would make a lot of sense if you ask me instead of him playing 8 mpg next season year. We will need him more for the 2015-16 season than we will next year IMO.
I could see it as we don't have any big guy recruits for beyond 2015.
though at the same time, he didn't come here as a junior to redshirt
Amardi is really getting more minutes and putting up more numbers as the season goes on. And that Indian Hills bench has some D1 post players on it so he has to compete for his minutes. Hopefully he can adjust quickly to ISU basketball.
I think that a high-major defenses are good enough that most teams can really only handle one offensive liability on the court at once. I mean look at the difference between the team with Niang on the court instead of Booker or Gibson. If a defense can relax on one guy, the game can change drastically. Another example would be that loaded Washington team with Terrance Ross and Isaiah Thomas. They were incredible offensively until they put their 7'3" guy that couldn't put the ball in the basket on the court.
