I had a chance to check out some pick-up ball today at Comcast where Tobias was playing with the guys. Here are my thoughts...
- Sean Mosley looks greatly improved. Not only was his shot falling more consistently but the guy just looked like a leader on the court. He made some great passes, talked up his teammates, and seemed a lot more assertive on the offensive end. If there was one player that really stood out today, it was Mosley.
- Tobias Harris can get to the hoop. I didn't see him hit many shots from deep but when he drove to the lane he was virtually unstoppable. There was one play where someone missed a jumper and Harris came out of nowhere for a gorgeous put-back. When he's inside the paint, he doesn't miss.
- Jordan Williams is huge. He didn't show a ton offensively today but defensively, he played pretty well. There were numerous occasions where Padge or someone else would go up for a layup and J-Will would block it. I'd be surprised if he wasn't starting at the 5 by the time the season starts.
- James Padgett also looks pretty decent on the defensive end. Like Williams, he didn't do a ton offensively but he did have some nice put-backs and he also brought in some nice boards. Both freshmen bigs should get significant playing time this year.
- Dino is another player who's shot looks to have improved this off-season. He was pretty aggressive offensively and hit a good percentage of the shots he took. I'm not sure if he was just having a good day or what, but he looks like he could definitely increase his point production this season.
