    This was written by a high school student. So sad to see what Maven has done to the SI brand. :vomit:

    I ALMOST feel bad for the expectations that UGA is going to have for Kier. Their fans think they are getting the next JJ Redick if they are expecting him to shoot above 40% from 3 next season.

    Agreed. So much of what I’ve seen written about him mischaracterizes his game or is just flat out wrong.

    agreed... they obviously know very little about his actual game. He makes threes but can he really be characterized as a gunner and three point shooter? That is an added part of his game that tends to work when he is wide open or off a great kick out pass... hopefully he is fully healthy so he can slash and play great defense again. Kid always gets a ton of steals but also plays ole defense quite a bit.

    SEC defenses are going to be a lot longer and bigger than he faced in A10... wish him the best

    Congrats to Justin and hope it works out for the best. My lasting memory will be his 14 straight against Bona in the A10 QF two years ago. Team just didn't have it but Justin was sensational.

    We've all forgotten about it because it was a disappointing ending to a brutal season, but that sequence from Justin was outrageous. Otis's ankle was failing him and Reuter had nothing left in the tank. Being courtside to watch him take over, he's special man. I'll miss him. One of the only players that makes me turn into Jon Gruden when I talk about him.

    If Pons returns instead of staying in the NBA draft, he'll eat his lunch.

    Pons is a freak. His pregame dunk show is a sight to behold.

    I’m very interested to see Kier play at this level. If Pons isn’t guarding him, it will most likely be 5-star Jaden Springer, 5-star Keon Johnson, or 5-star Josiah Jordan-James.

    Attended GMU at Duquesne - I believe it was Kier's sophomore season. It was the first time I realized how good Kier is. Team down the whole game, but he had a great 2nd half to help get it to OT. Eventual loss unfortunately.

    Quite the memories!

    I do hope his injury doesn't turn him into Marcus Evans, although in fairness, Evans had many more injuries over his career.

    Wish him the best..an outstanding representative of our program in every aspect.

    Technically, Kier gave us his four years. Now he is rewarded with another season in an exciting new environment for him. I wish him the best!

    Absolutely. And here's hoping he has the same level of personal success as Hancock did.

    Couldn't agree more. Good on him. He earned it.

    Yessir. He gets the Luke Hancock "good luck, kid, go tear 'em up" well-wishes from me.
