Strike ~ hot iron : exploit ~ seize The Initiative
Hopefully no hangover from the West Lafayette win
Time to put on a good show !!
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
Girard ... averages over 50 points a game
Schnikeys. Is the rest of his team awful, is his schedule bereft of competition, is he a shooter without a conscience, or he is simply that talented? There are some central Ohio teams that barely score 50 points per game.
Somehow, I don't see Holtmann allowing somebody to go full "Trae Young" every game.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
Team is ranked 5th in state of New York. Nationally like 140th. More of a shooting guard, but at 6'1" might need to be a point.
Have read he's Jimmer Fredette 2.0
If he's a 6'1" shooting guard, he's going to need a quick release. He's also going to have to defend taller shooting guards. But, still, 50ppg is 50ppg.
Kid's got a real smooth stroke and loves the 3 ball.
Joe Girard looks like a sweet shooting Aaron Craft.
Flashbacks to ThreeBler?
Is he the second coming of Lonzo Ball? :)

Lonzo can't shoot enough to average 50 ppg...........
Brings to mind former Buckeye great, Alan Hornyak. A prolific scorer for a small high school (86 in one game!). Many thought he couldn't cut it in the Big Ten. He could.
I remember Jay Burson averaging about 44 a game his sophomore year (only 34 his junior and senior years) at John Glenn High School in New Concord, Ohio. Never heard of 50 a game.
Many, many years ago, Cincinnati Lockland had a 6-6 kid named Greg Johnson. He averaged 32.6 ppg as a senior and signed with UC. He had unlimited range and was considered a national Top 10 recruit. Our HS played Lockland his senior year and beat them something like 49-48. Johnson had 44 of Lockland's 48 points. They just kept feeding him the ball and he hit shot after shot. He broke his foot as a freshman at UC and never recovered. I've heard rumblings he turned into a con man, scamming lots of people around the country ala Art Schlichter.

I was at the game and watched Hornyak from St. John's fighting irish against my Bridgeport Bulldogs in early 1969 @ Bulldog gym. Hornyak scored 51 points that night in an 89-83 loss. I recall that Tiltonsville Blue Rambler game when he scored 86 points as well. If memory serves me right, I think that game went into double overtime won by the ramblers.

Reminds me of Diebler when he was in high school. Or go way back to the days of Allan Hornyak. Same height, unbelievable scorer.
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
The Bellaire Bomber one of my favorite Basket Bucks, if they only had the 3 point line back in his day.
If they had that 3-point line back then, he would have scored OVER 100 points in a game against the Tiltonsville Blue Ramblers in 1969. He scored 86 points from 2-point land that night in a 102-99 loss. I recall that game well.
Holtman would not allow his PG to average 11 assists per game and lead the nation in that category!?!?
Stxbuck, you have caught me red-handed. I had no idea that Young is averaging 9.4 assists per game.
I was aware that he scoring a bunch of points, and I had seen an article with the headline "Is Trae Young shooting too much"? I watched about 7 minutes of an Oklahoma game recently (against West Virginia); it was fairly late in the game, Young had 0 assists, and he was launching a tough shot on virtually every possession while I was watching (he finished with 20 shots and 1 assist).
So, I allowed myself to make an inference from an exceedingly small sample size.
I humbly withdraw my snarky comment directed toward Mr. Young.
I was just messing with you somewhat-Young is definitely a one man show for the Sooners-he has gotten too shot happy at times this year-he had 39 shots in one game! Oklahoma gets in trouble when opposing teams shut down their transition game-Young gets 5 or 6 assists a game on on lobs/outlet passes.
In Holtmann we trust. Sincerely appreciate his composure on and off the court and in the press. Can't help but believe it is and will continue to be noticed by recruits and will pay off in the long run.
In Holtmann we trust
Amen. I trust these guys can play D, rebound, play team ball, go to class (and pass), and stay out of trouble?
If so, invite them aboard.
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
Let's go Buckeyes!
Alonzo Gaffney would be an absolute star here. Yes freaking please.
Near sellout?? Come on now Buckeye fans what more does this team have to do for you to get out and support them!? Only 2 home games left get your butts to VCA!! In more positive news, I have a great feeling about Gaffney... what a stud he would be!!
I don't remember hearing much about these in-game recruiting visits in years past. I'm glad Holtmann has the team moving in a direction where we can take advantage of it. Hopefully the Schott will be rowdy tonight!
Maybe Urban can swing by. I hear he's pretty good with these recruits...
Holtmann's got a tough act to follow.
My aim, then, is to whip the Weasels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. - William Tecumseh Sherman (with apologies)
Coach Meyer showing love to the BasketBucks program with a visual of him talking to Coach Holtman would be awesome
“Save yourself and relax during every game. I recommend a fine bourbon.”
He did it for the wrestling team during the big Iowa dual.
Urban should be doing whatever he can to pay Iowa back.
I am sure Urban will be paying close attention to the Happnen's at the Schott
The last few years OSU has really lost out of some really good Ohio talent.
It appears there's a good chance OSU lands Gaffney—if Holtmann wants him.
Gaffney has a big OSU tattoo on his chest.
Pretty sure that was a recruiting edit and not real.
Agree about Hornyak! He was fun to watch.
Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!
I'd say a great time was had this afternoon.
I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...
Would love to see us land a 5* Ohio kid
