    "George Mason Patriots: Justin Kier

    Justin Kier is potentially the most underrated freshman in the Atlantic 10. He doesn’t take a lot of shots, but he’s efficient when he does. Kier is shooting 45% from long range this season. I think he, along with a number of other young Patriots, really have a chance to do something special for Mason in a couple of seasons."

    I like that story, too. I really didn't think much of him when we signed him, but he's turning into one of my favorite players. I really like this team.

    My only wish is that Bryon Allen got to play with Paulsen.

    Pretty cool stuff. Be interested in a text version for the next player.

    DJ3 - I don't see a text version happening, just not enough time. Did you not enjoy the other parts of the podcast?

    MasonCrew - Thanks for listening but I would not be too excited for the Boyd interview ha. It's dropping Thursday though!

    How long are they? If they are under 20 minutes I can transcribe them in my spare time (whatever that means right now).

    It looks like he's been bulking up a little too. Marquise's upper body strength has to have had an impact on the rest of the players.

    Justin Kier joined By George and co-hosted a segment on our latest podcast #Kierweek. Check it out here - http://giantkiller.co/ByGeorge/2017/06/29/kierweek/

    The kid is destined to be a captain and is tons of fun to talk to. When predicting the starting lineup, we don't always see him fitting in it, but he may just be the starting 2 guard. In his segment, he explained that he is taking on a bigger role handling the ball. He was a point guard his whole life and claimed that last season was a little difficult playing off ball. With the absence of Moore, Kier seems ready to fill that secondary ball handler/back up PG void. Look for a bi-weekly By George segment with Kier next season.

    I always considered it a battle between Kier and Boyd to fill Moore's spot. The nice thing is whoever wins between those two is going to have earned their playing time.

    I was able to listen through the link provided, but not through the podcast app. through the podcast app I only saw the old Kier episode, that's why I asked.

    Don't want this to turn into a "rosterbation" thread.. but I have a hard time with leaving AJ out of the starting lineup, knowing that he has spent the last year improving under this coaching staff. Either way, it's an extremely good "problem" to have.
