Get 'em Buckley-
"What type of attributes will you bring to this team?
“I look at myself as a point guard who can take care of the ball and not make mistakes. As far as winning, I will do anything Coach McDermott tells me to do. If he needs me to be a leader or a role player, then I will do it.”"
God I hope so.
I can't wait to see Buckley on the court!!
Very excited about Buckley. The first ex. game is only 5 weeks away. I love that time of year when there is still football going on and basketball is just gearing up.
Do they have this years basketball poster out yet?
nice read.. looking forward to seeing him play and help win ballgames for us!
I'm really hopeful that Buckley can give us something we were missing last year - a guy who can dribble the ball anywhere on the court and not get trapped or give it up. Someone who plays like Kantrail Horton did.
Ball handling should be much improved from last year...DG, Buckley, Petey, Lucca, Wes can all handle it in the open floor...Should take some heat off Petey, as many turnovers came from playing too far from the basket.
As long as they're not setting the offense up 30 feet from the basket, it will be an improvement. Hopefully they can push tempo a little more too.
I saw him play in the Cap City League. He seems to have a decent outside shot.
all I care is if he is able to dribble the ball up the floor.
