Random Thoughts

  • Who the hell is Adrien Sturt?  A quick Google search brings up an Australian kid..can anyone enlighten me?
  • I think this may be the time to bring out the newly bought Hoopsfix van for a road trip. This team is gonna bring some serious highlights.
  • A huge shame in my mind that none of these guys are playing in the UK competitively (through no fault of their own, I don’t blame the players, I would do the same thing); when we get to the point of being able to develop talent in this country, I think the sky will be the limit for British basketball.
  • Anyone know why Matt Guymon isn’t currently playing anywhere? (edit-shout out to Ben Davenport who explained on the Hoopsfix Facebook page he’s on a kind of year out but going back out to Oklahoma next year)
  • This team is as skilled and athletic as hell, if I do end up managing to get out there I think they’re gonna be awesome to watch.
  • I’m surprised Devon Van Oostrum wasn’t selected seeing as he made the men’s training roster. Add to that, Joel Freeland who is technically eligible, Dan Clark and Eric Boateng. I assume it’s all been done around player availability.
