I am really impressed with Bobby Maze. I think he is the most valuable player we acquired this year. I’m not saying he is the best player we have or the most talented, I’m just saying he is the most valuable player. He plays the point very very well which is what we desperately needed. This team looked really good against Chattanooga, which I was glad to see because in my opinion the exhibition games left a little to be desired.
I saw nothing on the court that leads me to believe that this team will not be better then last year. The only problem I saw was half court offense, but none of Bruce Pearls teams have ever had a outstanding half court offense. The Point looked better, the rebounding looked better, the defense with those long athletic bodies looked better, the athletisism just looked better. Sure we are gonna miss Lofton’s game and everything he brought to the game, and were gonna miss JuJuans heart and talent. But that is it, Maze already better then Ramar ever was, Hopson already gives you more then Crews. Then only question is can the Team Gel and play the whole year as a team and keep believing in Pearls system when the SEC season gets here and Minutes may be limited? If this team can play with half the HEART and PASSION and SELFLESSNESS that last years Team. Then we are in for one heck of season sports fans.
