Penny Hardaway

I LOVE what he’s doing at Memphis.  They just came back from 17 down to beat UAB on the road.

He didn’t just recruit a bunch of good players.  He recruited a roster that fits well together and is EXTREMELY deep.  They will be at full strength when Wiseman and Quinones return.

He’s basically doing what Dave Rice was supposed to do.

Exactly. Sign a name ex-NBA baller that can actually coach and have a personality and you too can rock the top 20 vote every year.  Roll out the cash and make the right choice....they don't grow on trees.

It’s not as simple as signing good players.  Dave Rice showed that.

With that much talent, they all fit together. 

Tell that to 2004 Team USA Basketball.

I will be happy when I see Unlv get a guy better.  0-2 since he left.  MM compiled the worst record in modern Unlv hoops.   This guy is following the path of MM.  let’s see how long it takes.

Agree.  What part of Dave Rice screams ex-NBA baller that can actually coach....AND has a personality?

Dave Rice never put together a class as good as Penny has in his first year. Also, Pennys staff is much better, and Penny played PG.

I’m pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t think they would make the tournament before the season.  They will likely be a top five seed.

Freshmen teams are wildly inconsistent.  I’m still concerned about how they will do in conference play.

Coming into the season a 5 seed would be considered a mild disappointment.

Then the expectations were stupid.  The ceiling is Sweet 16.
