Wyoming offense is good enough to do well in conference but their defense needs a lot of work and that is why we will struggle. It will help next year when we have Graham Ike down low.

Hunter Thompson can't do anything at a division 1 level besides shoot occasionally. I haven't seen this bad of defensive footwork ever. He overcommits to every move from his opponent. He's so useless when he shoots 1/8 from 3. The opposing team is sagging off him because his shooting is so bad tonight.

He’s nailed 3 big ones in the last three games. Not sure why we haven’t seen any zone D? Not a huge fan, but might be worth a try, especially against these teams that haven’t shot well against us, but killed us in the paint. Marble and Maldo are exceptional help side defenders

Last year, we lose this one by 10. Linder is going to be a good one. I was a skeptic and I appear to have been very wrong...and I couldn't be more delighted.

As for Hunter, Linder has indicated that he thinks he can be a great contributor. Like most of you, I am not there. We shall see.

We are a much better team than recent years, in many different areas. Come conference play we might be an okay team or good but not great team, but a better team for sure. Both a credit to Linder and a statement of how we were scraping the bottom in the Edwards years. Hope we stay healthy (in all ways) and get as many games played this year as we can. I have a feeling that the improvement with this group will be VERY quick.

I really like watching this team.

They will definitely be better once Ike is in but they’re still a productive power forward away from being dominant. It just isn’t Hunters game. I think playing against high schoolers that were all a good foot shorter than him really hurt his development. Man, he could really be deadly if he cleaned up the glass more.

I have to say it is a breathe of fresh air when listening to Linder's press conferences compared to Edwards. I couldn't stand watching Edwards talk after games even if we won.
