    Paradise Jam

    Anyone know if the website the games will be on this weekend might also have an app to download on firestick or like devices?


    Edit: According to FloHoops...which I think is what televises the games, there is an app that can be dowloaded.

Yes, I know it's early in the season, yes I know it's a new staff, yes I know its star player has been hurt, and, yes I know there is a bunch of newbies on the court, so I hope we can expect better things in the future, but right now that is really scary!
    Just attempting to answer your question. Considering the players added this year came from Western KY (via a community college, via New Mexico, via Tennessee Tech), Oakland-Mi, Northern Kentucky, Valparaiso, and a few random high schools - I am not sure any of us can say this year's version of the Bearcats are definitively better than the schools you list.

    I am not down on the Bearcats. I like the potential for upside. But this is absolutely a work in progress

    I think it means this team without a healthy Jarron is going to struggle particularly early in the schedule away from the Shoe. Early season games away from home are generally difficult for any team with a lot of new pieces. Guys like Tre and Keith are used to having healthy Jarron being a big part of the offense. It's going to take them some time to adjust to not looking for him. Obviously getting the ball to Vogt is a priority as it should be. Anyone shooting 74% from the field needs the ball. It was good to see them pull the game out yesterday without him as you have to start somewhere. I'm encouraged by what i see out of the frosh. They definitely play hard, and i think Zak is starting to relax out there. I'm still amazed we pulled Mica-Adams Wood that late in the Spring. I think he was basically a trade for Samari Curtis who i don't think had done much so far at Nebraska. He looks to be a very solid pickup. Bigger pg that has the left hand option. If JC can't get back to health, it's going to be an up and down deal unless all these guys mature very quickly. I heard them talking last night that between JC and McNeal one was an 80% ft shooter last year, and one was a 76% ft shooter last year. The odds of them missing 15 ft's in a game was low, but it happens. Have to cut down on the turnovers. New system, growing pains. Vogt has been a revelation as far as i'm concerned. Much better than i thought last Spring.

    I didn't see the game, but listened on the radio. In addition to Adams-Woods, it sounds like Harvey played a lot of minutes. How did he look?

    Turnovers...I think we will improve on it, but if we don't, won't even make NIT

    OT again. Blew another big second half lead. Hard to watch.

    Fans at the game are reporting Jarron is in street clothers

    The way we've shot the ball away from home this year makes it real hard for me to see us dominating anyone on the road.

    This game tonight should be over in the first half with OR without Jarron. I fully expect this team to dominate tonight coming off a game they know they shouldn’t have lost. Anything short of a 20+ win is a disappointment for me tonight.

    It will be interesting to see in the next several possesion game down the stretch if Brannen keeps the ball out of McNeal's hands. I respect that he stuck with him down the stretch particularly this early in the season as he needs him to be that guy. Obviously it didn't work, but the crazy thing is JC even shot a worse % for the game than his 8/19. It's a tough situation when you have new guys. All the focus on ft's, but the defense down the stretch was abysmal. I like Keith Williams a lot, but he couldn't/didn't guard that kid who was hitting those shots the last 4 minutes. He either got the shot, or Keith fouled him. Inability to get stops in the last 10 minutes of the game was their undoing.
