Ok man crush building on this recruit. Wow.
Ok something looks suspicious - he makes free throws. We cannot have any of that here.
You seem to be forgetting that our last coach ran off a forward who shot 81% from the charity stripe their junior season (79% sophomore season).
This is Troy:
And, this is Troy's mother playing for Syracuse:

When you find out your mom had 90 offers...
I wonder if his "eccentricities" are what limited Troy's recruitment.
No. Most schools thought he'd have to go JUCO like his brother and backed off.
Fortunately for us, Troy worked his ass off in the classroom as a senior and was able to qualify.
So, yes I can only imagine what this kid was like in the classroom in high school.
I think it's more the fact that he comes from a nowhere in terms of basketball. He's from suburban Syracuse, which is a wasteland. They have the university, but Boeheim isn't recruiting the back yard, you know?
That's not it. He played AAU with Albany City Rocks and got plenty of exposure to D-I coaches. They knew what he could do.
Troy is a stud. Endless energy. Our fans will love him. Opposing fans will hate him and it will only give him more power. His fellow players will look to him to keep the game loose during tense situations. Every teams needs a guy like this. TT-- go nuts. Feed that fire. Break a backboard and blow the top off of Eagle Bank...
Troy's mom looks pretty nice.
All right, some of you say Troy is eccentric. Why? All I've seen here is that he made a workout video with the Pokē-mon theme song or something. I don't recall seeing the proof. What do you all got on him or is this insinuation nothing but tabloid fodder?
Doesn't he just go around saying moose for no reason?
OK. I just saw the videos on the Dave Paulsen thread. Troy is certainly a little "special", but aren't all geniuses? Let's hope that his nuttiness gets Mason back to an NCAA tourney run.
when is he due back from injury?
This is how you get a freshman big going -- out in transition with a retreating defense. I bet that was a huge confidence boost for him.

Troy looked pretty good defensively vs. UMass. Playing good D got him in the flow of the game and he was thusly rewarded with a pretty fast-break feed and one-handed dunk!
Just goes to show, play good defense and the other elements of the game will come to you. Here's to many more one-handed dunks over the next three seasons, Troy!
