    That was great.
    I like the way his team mates were looking for him.
    It shows they trust him, and that is what we need in a big man right now, for team mates to have faith that he has their backs.
    Also, since it popped up at the end of the video, I had to watch the Olidipo highlights against Iowa………….excellent!

    Not a lot of defense shown by anyone, but Bryant still was showing good basics by blocking out for the rebounds, chasing down the fast break to intercept the pass, and seemed to follow the ball well. It looks to my like he has a pretty good motor and a decent BB IQ. Can’t wait to see him play for IU!

    My favorite part of the highlight was him running back on defense in an All Star game and intercepting the pass.

    Underrated? He seemed very competitive against some of the best big men in his class. The best scene I liked was his hustle back to block the long pass and steal Zimmerman’s cookie.

    I like his hustle. Given Thomas had no specific plays run for him (and was in no specific offense I could recognize) I thought TB showed some game. He likes to take the 3…but I hope his game at IU gets developed as a post/4 player…who can face the bucket and score when the right opportunity presents itself. He is not a great leaper..but seems quick off his feet.. has good timing and looooooooong arms:) Put about 15 pounds on this guy (in the right places) and not many people are going to push him around. Swanigan’s entire game is within 10 feet of the basket..I think Bryant is much more versatile than that in the long run…and he will beat Swanigan down the floor at every opportunity. See no reason why TB and HMP can not be on the floor together at times next season.

    A 6’10” Marco Killingsworth? I’m beyond excited to see Bryant at IU.

    See no reason why HMP should not be first-team All American next season.

  • Dereck Johnson

    Is he a recruit or transfer, or am I missing something.


    I think playing another true big along with TB, and playing TW at the 3, is going to be the key to doing more than just winning a few more games next year than we did this past season. Whether it’s HMP or EH or who ever, having that other true big is the key to next year IMHO. I feel like having another true big starting and on the floor all the time is also the key to maximizing TB’s contribution. I, for one, won’t be surprised if HMP looks like a better player and is someone able to contribute more, than this past season, if played in this way.

    Style of play. Monsters that can shoot the 3
