    Why did we let Marquise Moore teach Greg shooting technique? MM lives!

    Hah! I said during the game, when I noticed the hitch in his FT, that he looked like Moore shooting FT's. But Moore was a pretty decent FT shooter!

    Frosh Four Series - Big Haiti

    Listen to our interview with Greg Calixte. You never know what to expect interviewing freshmen but Cali was funny, candid and easy to chat with. He also had some interesting things to say about both Stanley-Douglas and Reuter. Listen here - http://giantkiller.co/ByGeorge/2018/01/26/frosh-four-big-haiti/

    The file won't play. Is it working for anyone else? I'd love to hear this one.

    Nice job on the interview. Calixte is a natural speaker.

    I really hope he has a tremendous senior season. Need a quality 15MPG from him to be top flight A10 team in conference

    His freshman form was also his sophomore and junior form. That’s the problem.

    Unfortunately I agree. He and AJ being benched for Reuter’s useless ass still pisses me off.

    Yeah, obviously hindsight is 20/20 but I still think Reuter was hurt worse than was ever let on by the staff. And as useless as he was at times, I understand wanting to have a big in there that can pass and hit free throws. Nothing Greg was doing at the time was enough to offset losing a big who could get some points at the line and a few assists.

    But def agree, it stunted AJ.

    Ehh I don't know. I'm sure someone can't point to something like mpg or rebounds or something and argue he's trending down but the eye test showed me that no matter his playing time, he hasn't really done anything any better or worse than when he was a freshman. He'll have his good games, and he'll have his games where I think to myself after reading the box score "Greg played tonight?" I was really hoping for him to make a big leap into sophomore year but I think he's missing a little bit of aggression as opposed to any skills.

    He's missing some skills, namely he doesn't have particularly soft hands when catching the ball on the move; his shooting mechanics are not good (although, he had the beginnings of a decent baby hook last year, so hopefully that continues); and he can be foul prone -- he especially has a tendency to foul when it's obvious he's been beaten, which is just a waste because he gives up the basket and the foul usually.

    If you could have put Reuter's skillset into Calixte's body, we'd have a monster, but that's not what we have (maybe Oduro can become that eventually). If he can develop some consistency, give us solid defense and rebounding, and those quick-hitter layups he's so good at when sneaking in behind the defense in a solid 15mpg I'll call it a successful senior season for him.
