    Eric May

    So Gatens fed it to him under the basket and he didnt want to go for the easy lay up. he runs out to the edge and shoots and ugly 3. wtf? no confidence? Only Gatens and Oglesby should shoot the 3 ball.

    Even Oglesby missed a wide open shot. He seems too inconsistent with the 3 ball for my liking.

    Agreed. At that point we are down 8 and could have cut it to 6. I dont understand why when directly under the hoop he catches it and runs the baseline to the corner and shoots a three. Makes no sense. He is a liability on offense.

    Well he would have gotten blocked by Leonard had he attempted the layup...so lose-lose.

    May should walk on to the football team. He could be of more use over there. Also, not sure what JO brings either.

    Oglesby was one of our best players in the 2nd half.

    Oglesby showed some good turnaround moves and short range jumpers to go with his 3 pt game.

    To answer the person who thought JO was bad, I think JO will be a serviceable scorer but not a star. I would lay off a freshman who is playing hard.

    I will agree. I had an emotional overreaction. After calming down, I do think he brings more than May and BC.

    i think that greene is being looked because we will need a back up for marble and fran isnt sure if may will recover fully. and if he does will he be useful? if greene comes in we have a sf back up. if may can play redshirt greene so as to not overload schollies as much.

    Re: Eric May

    I was thinking the same thing and thought he should make the most of his opportunities because next year he will play about as much as Brommer is this year and that is about 6 minutes or less a game.

    Huh? No way we would reshirt him. Just because May is able to play doesn't mean he is able to play well. May is the Illinois basketball of players. Talent is there but he has completely lost confidence, even before the injury which has just made him much worse. The way May is playing now he makes us a worse team every time he gets on the court. He's incapable of scoring in a non-fast break situation but his injury is preventing him from running like he used to. I don't even want to see him on the court for more than a few minutes a game next year unless he improves. It's tough to do that to a senior, but Fran is here to win.
