Re: Messiah Thompson 5-8
While Silva appears to be the starter and Thompson the backup, my guess is that Thompson was told he has a chance to earn the spot. He is the more experienced guy, as with the covid year he will be a 5th year super senior. It will be interesting to see who evolves in the position. The good news, is between the two, I feel we have the PG position covered.
The backup is here. Thanks for the heads up Freg. Its on Verbal Commits too.
Crazy stat, he shot 41% from 3 pt range last season, and 58% FTs! The year before he shot 32% from 3 and 79% FTS! Has a 3 to 2 assist to TO. Feels very much like an experienced backup to Silva who can run the team when needed.
