I get the lack of athleticism to a point. Is he going to average 15 a night in a P5 conference? Probably not. But he’s a well built 2g who can also spell at point and gives really good effort on D. That’ll play pretty much anywhere in my book.
I don't see why not. He averaged 15 PPG against those teams with four other guys on the floor who can and will get NBA looks, so I do think he can average double figures on the right "P5" team. I also don't necessarily buy the "lack of athleticism" argument. He's a big, strong guard who defends well and gives great effort 100% of the time, as you mentioned. If I was making a comparison among recent A10 guys, I'd throw names out there like Jared Terrell from URI or Jordan Goodwin from SLU. There are hundreds of P5 players who wouldn't have taken a minute from Holmes, and we'd have to look no further than our own bench.I get the lack of athleticism to a point.

More to the point too is I don’t think these morons realize that there are still some very, very bad basketball games played between P5 teams. I can think of a handful of teams from each conference, aside from maybe the Big 12, plus the big East who would have probably only narrowly avoided the pillow fight if they were in the A10.One of the many BannedWagon dunces just said Holmes "is not a P5 player." What does that even mean?
He averaged 15 PPG against P6 teams last season, and was the best player on the floor for two of those eight games (vs. Clemson and Oklahoma). The P5 cartel's decades-long misinformation campaign has really melted the brains of Wagon types. Sure, his shot disappeared for a long stretch in January/February, but you'd think "The P5" was the NBA the way people talk about it.
Meh. Do that any other time. I’d kill to have another year in the thick of things at SBU with some of the best and funniest people I’ve ever known.Gotta be honest, if I were a guy who played at Bonas, graduated, and still had the bonus year of eligibility to use, I would highly consider going to like, University of San Diego and just having fun in the sun for a year
Just get that Starbucks built between the liquor store and Perkins. That’s a nice one-two punch for me on Bona game weekends. Grab a trenta cold brew and a few nips of Bushmills for the game.Only pickup, though, from what I understand. You still won't be able to enjoy your meal in the ambience of a Chipotle dining room.
Ever since that Pearl Harbor job by 0, 1, and 21, I haven’t gone NEAR that board. One can only imagine the absolute nonsense.
