Jalen Green's going to make $500K this year on the G League Elite team, plus endorsements, including having an agent to help him get said endorsements.

The sound of Johnny Holiday, Chris Knoche, and the Wizard (Walt Williams) on the radio sound good. Different without the fan/arena noise but they call a great game.

Also if ever there was a year to bail on college hoops and go to the G League route, this is it.

Nothing more upsetting than when Philly kids go to an out of city A-10 school.

Nice start for UVA. They were preseason #4 in the country and got a surprise waiver for their transfer from Rice that they weren't expecting to play this year. He's a 6'9" wing and he hit 6 threes and scored 21 yesterday in 17 minutes. So yeah, the Cavs are gonna be pretty good again this year!

Jalen Suggs (freshman Gonzaga) is the real deal.

U San Francisco lost to UMass-Lowell a few days ago, and beats UVA today?

Yeah, my bad. USF shot lights out today. They played very well and UVA had stretches where they couldn't throw it in the ocean.

I don't believe in jinxes, but the halftime show of that game all about anointed UVa a championship on the basis of the first half. I tune in 40 minutes later and the Dons are dancing at midcourt.

UVA had a higher shooting percentage, overall, and made 13 more free throws. But, SF was 46% on 3-pointers.

I blame it on the ridiculous meme that was being shared on Twitter earlier that day comparing UVa and Gonzaga.

I'm really not too worried about UVA. The loss doesn't really mean anything and hopefully it will help the team avoid getting too caught up in expectations. They have a bunch of new additions to their regular rotation and Bennett is trying out a completely new offense. It looks more like a 5-out motion-style offense and it's producing a lot of drives to the basket, which is very different than what UVA has typically run. They'll get it sorted. Assuming the season can actually happen, that is.

If you're interested in that sort of thing (basketball wonkiness), this article is a quite good analysis and statistical breakdown of UVA's new motion offense. What's amazing is the writer of this piece is a 17-year-old high school kid.

Seems really bad especially with benefit of hindsight but I'm sure the players were thinking that he was going to be fine even after being carted out. Kids that age think they're invincible.

I agree the kids couldn't really make that decision with any level of judgement or care but I don't put it on them in any way. Which is why the coach, after the opposing coach offered twice, should have said, let's suspend this.
