    Speaking of talent, I missed the Bemidji game but watched it delayed on Roku. Boy Winona has a sweet pair in Taylor and Wagner. At the start of his career I didn't expect much from Wagner but has he proven me wrong. One gauge I consider a separator for guards, often displayed from the D2 to D1 level, is ability to finish when they get to the rim. Wagner can get to the rim and certainly can finish well with either hand when he gets there. Plus good long ball threat, solid defender, dependable ball handler and whatever else you want out of a guard. Treated the viewer to a very flashy in the air, split leg bounce pass from under the rim to Whitelow in the bench corner (who promptly buried a three) that was a piece of art. Great all around player.

    And speaking of Wagner's, the one from Galesville can sure throw up some of the longest bombs I've seen at any level, college or pro. He should shoot more.
    Agreed. Caleb has really developed into a great player. He can take over parts of games just like Taylor. If this WSU team can find some consistency, they will be a team no one wants to play come tournament time. Big if, but if.

    I don't think the program is as dire as some as there is clearly talent out there. The lack of depth in the front court has been a problem for a few years and it's mind boggling that it hasn't really been addressed.

    Part of the problem is they’ve lost their frontline recruits through quit, transfer, injury or a combination thereof, several before they played a down so who knows if they were any good. The list started with Treder and the 7 footer, neither of which were very good. Others include Larson (hurt/left), Max Miller (left, don’t know why) Plombon (transferred), the kid from Turkey (hurt), the JC from I think last year (bad injury/disappeared) and maybe others I’m not thinking of. Some of the names I’ve already forgotten. So it’s probably a combination of recruiting problems, injuries, talent shortfall and left team for whatever reason. Seems like they found a good one in Lo Biondo. Hopefully things improve in this area.

    I've noticed the trend for Eisner's WSU teams to start alarmingly poor and improve so that by mid-season and beyond they are very competitive. The problem is the early season flop is an albatross when Region time comes around. I wish they could get their act together early in the year.

    Thanks WSUguy87. Sounds good. Looks like Winona has improved considerably since their home loss to NAIA Clark. I know several of your posters were really concerned. Looks like a nice turnaround and you're in the hunt.

    Both teams played fairly well, at least through my eyes. Just a good half court game by both teams. Winona's defense was solid and it lead to some hurried shots by BSU. But both teams played fairly clean.

    Only 8 total turnovers in the Winona (2) -Bemidji (6) game. Was it well-played? Limited pressure? Or just good decision-making on both teams, especially Winona? Anyone insight on that?

    Well, I would assume I have watched more NSU games than you and considering how we are tenth in the NSIC in three attempted and I watch as Parker either comes high (as Doyle and Evan's and Decker did) or posts up down low (where he gets the majority of his points) you just have nothing to back up whatever you think you are saying. Parker has shot 23 threes on the season...in 18 games... They recently gave him the green light to shoot a three if open (no different than Levi Hamilton going back 15 years. But keep on trucking little buddy, you'll make sense some day.
    Doubt I will ever make sense to you. Similar to last year after I commented how good I thought fox would be in the future and your typical condescending retort was something to the effect that such praise was premature given the small sample size.

    In my opinion, so far the only team in nsic, that Moorhead has played this year, that consistently looked to pound the ball inside to its big back-to-basket post players has been Bemidji. Augie did to reimersma some too. Even janssen surprisingly played out of low post quite a bit.

    Fox constantly caught the ball on perimeter looking to use his quickness on slower bigs or to handoff plays to stark, etc. Fox was not on low block with back to basket very much in two games against Moorhead. He is much more mobile than Evan’s was, for example, so it appears to me that this coaching staff is moving him off the low block more to run different perimeter sets (pick and roll) rather than the more traditional inside-out sets that were run when Evans was in the game a few years ago, for example and since Evans was a more of prototypical back-to-basket big man. I compare it to how the timberwolves use towns today versus 4 years ago. Much less back-to-basket low post touches for towns today.

    Also, my guess is a larger percentage of Parker’s 23 threes have come in his last 4-6 games. Seems like he is trying to add that shot more as season goes on.

    We are likely going to just have to agree to disagree on this one...just like we normally do.
