    We have seen both especially last year with Jalen shooting the non-3 outside shot off of a pick and roll. We've also seen the backdoor pick and roll from the top of the key, but only a little bit with Calixte. Those videos definitely show more polish. Hopefully, we'll get there soon.

    In reference to the vidoes....none of these screens and screen actions work if you have a team of dudes who can't shoot!

    Does any offense work if you have a team of dudes that can’t shoot?

    All you cry babies. Are you all on the same blow up raft, floating in your river of tears? We are still rebuilding, do you understand what that means? You can't compare rebuilds bc they all start at a different place and ppl rebuild in different ways. It took Hurley 6 seasons to rebuild and everyone thinks he'll get poached this off-season. Do you want the rebuild to go faster? Throw more money into the program. Front up or shut up!

    I won't throw $ at a problem where the people handling my $ are incompetent. I will, however, purchase some Diet Mountain Dew to be delivered to Coach!

    So, we're coming to the close of year 3. If the remainder of the schedule plays out in line with the current standings the team will have finished 9-9 in conference two years in a row.

    At some point you are what your record says you are, and George Mason is, at this point a solidly middle-of-the-pack A 10 team.

    From my perspective, that's a roaring success for three years in.

    I can't speak to whether Paulsen can field an elite a 10-team, but I think it's fair to give him credit for stabilizing the program out of the death spiral the virus had us in.

    Now that PiKapp is alive and kicking, maybe he can put the smack-down on our Three-L'il-Trolls!

    DJ3, PoorManProfit, and MasonLawyer. Sadly they are home-grown. Three knuckleheads who come out from under the bridge whenever we lose a game. Stay tuned!

    Interesting I did not know that.

    Bottom line is everyone said at the end of last year this would be a tough season because we lost a lot to graduation and have underclassmen. We do have talent but are not complete and Paulsen has to engineer approaches to games as best he can. If our recruiting holds as documented - next year and the following year will be solid. Its only the third year from the dumpster fire years of Hewitt.

    I have watched Mason basketball for 30 years now and I saw how it took Coach L a bit to get us going and he took a team that was not as bad as what Hewitt left Paulsen. So I think Paulsen has done quite well.

    Last night - Paulsen utterly out-coached Anthony Grant. I remember when AG teams would give us fits.

    So everyone chew on that.
