    also team rebounding was 27 - 27, so its not like his team was killed on the boards. and the possibility of tipping the ball to a teammate which isn't counted as a stat, which he might have done a couple of times.
    True but L. Rytas did win by 26 points and 13 of the 27 rebounds were offensive.

    I am not or was not meaning to question his rebounding abilities. In asking the question it had everything to do with strength and nothing to do with ability, desire, or skill.

    Rytas starting center is injured so it looks like more minutes for Valanciunas, good news for Raptor fans is that he was very efficient in 32 minutes, so there is some proof that they are sort of holding him back, and maybe he is more ready for an NBA schedule than it seemed

    highlights are up, got to watch the game today, Valanciunas was by far the best player on the floor, and also displayed some great passing skills, only getting one assist but moved the ball very well out of the double team

    That's awesome! Hopefully they start getting him some more minutes and possibly the starting job if he continues like this!

    Do you foul out with 6 fouls in that league? If so, great use of the fouls!

    Thanks for highlighting those one more time Matt. Didn't catch them first time around! Unreal!

    I can see JV being very effective on the P&R in the NBA with his quick hops.
    I'm already seeing Jose tossin up Alley-Oops all day long! haha

    Not sure if those are Jose's forte... But we'd better make sure we have some shooters next year, as teams will be clogging up the paint if our shooting stays this bad. Especially when we are playing JV with Davis or Johnson the other three need to be able to shoot the three at least at a league average percentage.

    Did you not watch last season? Jose certainly is excellent at throwing the ally-oop. There was a misnomer earlier in his career that he couldn't do it, but it turned out that he couldn't do it to players who didn't want to or were unable to catch them. Once he got the players who could (DeRozan, Amir, Davis) he started throwing a lot of them.

    Honestly? Last season i watched the fewest games I have in a long time... my predetermined mindset must not have picked up on it. So I have to assume you are right, and in that case: Jose, I'm sorry.

    Pretty sure Jerryd will start and play heavy minutes. He better start taking some Ally-oop throwing lessons from Jose.

    I"d rather he learn how to actually run a team first. I think that will help FAR more than learning to throw an ally-oop. Unfortunately that's the whole problem with PGs today. So few actually know the fundamentals of their position.

    Kabongo throwing up those alley-oops? That would be nice.

    I've never seen Kabongo play. I'm looking forward to some Texas games this year.

    Anyone catch the other Canadian freshman PG in action last night? Kevin Pangos went off for 9 3's and 33 points leading Gonzaga over Washington. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDJgeqKaUwo

    From what little I've seen, Kabongo is a real PG. He might be flashy, but he makes his teammates better and knows how to run an offense. That's why I like him better than Teague.

    It's early in the season but I think it's fair to say that Kabongo isn't the best point guard at U of Texas right now. That would be J'Covan Brown.

    No doubt Brown had a great game against Boston.
    But I think Brown and Kabongo play two totally different style games.
    I see Brown becoming more in the mold of Jerryd Bayless, than Steve Nash. Which is who I see Kabongo modeling his game after.
    Mind you, I'm still of the mind that Bayless can be a stellar PG in the NBA as well, so not meant as a slight to Brown by any means.
