I dont think so - he s good but still needs to improve. It would be a huge career mistake. His day is coming but he is not ready for the NBA yet.

For those who thought we blew it by not hiring Anthony Grant, can we all agree now that he is not an elite coach. Alabama's program has less upside than ours.

These two games make us sunshine pumpers feel good. It's nice to see the team pull a few out. First back to back sec wins since 2011 fl and Arkansas. 3 years ago, so it shows you truly how bad the program has been and that we are heading in the right direction. Those saying this team hasn't gotten better from the start to now I think are definitely wrong. Lots of work to go, but progress is visible

There's always something to find entertaining, and the team winning makes it even better


Good prediction on the end of the game too

Sindarius is having an excellent year and he's a wonderful player, but I don't think he's quite ready for the NBA yet.

I agree. I remember him being 2nd or third on my list at the time, glad we didn't go there.

Good win, I wish we could string together a complete game but winning is the best thing for the teams confidence.

One of the most gutty wins South Carolina has had in a few years. 2 games in a row now I can say with 100% confidence that South Carolina was just tougher.

I bet that's a direct reflection of their head coach!

Just got a chance to watch the game, since I was working most of Saturday. Really fun game to watch.

It was nearly identical to most of our recent Saturday games - opposing team can't make a basket in the 1st half, we build up a decent lead, they start hitting their shots in the 2nd half and we start collapsing under the pressure - with the difference being, of course, that we won. I believe it was GH that posted "this team is learning how to win" or something similar. After watching the game, I don't think we won because the team is starting to learn how to finish but because we finally had a player, Thornwell, step up in crunch time and wanted to put the team on his shoulders win-or-lose.

Our recent losses of this nature all happened when the other team started hitting their shots in the 2nd half. Once said team got closer or took the lead, our offense came to a halt. Brenton would stop shooting the 3 or driving the lane and would just pass it off every chance he got, Notice would stop driving the lane and begin passing more and even Thornwell would stop taking his jumpers, 3s, trying to finish around the basket, etc. And let's face it, Williams, Thornwell and Notice are about our only offensive threats, so when they become hesitate and stop wanting to take their shots, who's going to score for us unless it's a Carrera/Kacinas offensive board-put back or the occasional L'Chat hook shot?

This game followed the same formula. As soon as Bama started cutting the lead, Brenton became non-existent and stop taking shots, Notice stopped trying to finish around the basket, and even a pretty hot Shaw stopped shooting. The offense started becoming our classic "every wing player pass the ball back-and-forth around the perimeter, run the shot clock down and hope someone else takes the shot or a big can grab a rebound for an easy putback." More than any other facet of the game, I contribute this problem to our inexperience - a bunch of young guys not wanting to be the reason we lost, thus not wanting to step up and take the shots during crunch time. Brenton is the exception being a senior, but I think it's just his personality - maybe too shy, not aggressive enough, whatever, which is what Martin has hinted at.

But the difference this game - Sindarius Freakin' Thornwell. When the offense started to become stagnant after Bama took the lead, Thornwell wanted the ball, took the shots, got to the line, D'ed up on their best player... wanted to be the "man." Even when we were going to get fouled and hitting the 2 FTs were going to ice the game, Brenton, our 96% FT shooter, wasn't called upon, but it was Thornwell. It's the first time this season I saw one of our players not afraid of failing, and because of that, he ended up winning the game for us. From here on out, win or lose, I hope Thornwell continues to want to be the man during crunch time. I think our team will be better because of it and perhaps even follow his lead.

Sorry for the long post. Didn't realize it was a novel until I read back over it.

He is a key guy in the recruitment of Dozier and Woods too. Frank can sell those kids to come play with Thornwell who should be a household name by the time Woods decides.

IMO thornwell will only ever be known in south carolina and in whatever city drafts him. That's just me.

Strongly disagree. In SEC play he has been around almost 20ppg with multiple games in the mid 20's. When analysts talk about USC the next two years, Thornwell will be the player they talk about. He is the face of our program right now. He is one 30 point game against a national opponent from turning a ton of heads (like Downey) outside the conference. I have a feeling its coming with UK and Florida both at home.

Sindarius is averaging 17.1 points, 4.5 rebs, 4.1 assists and shooting 45% in Conference play. He's probably going to make 1st-team all-freshmen in the SEC.

I don't know how long he plans on staying, but if he does stay 3 years, he would be guaranteed to play with Dozier. I doubt he stays 4 though. Sindarius looks like an NBA prospect.
