Re: Messiah Thompson 5-8
Hart has zero minutes of college ball and wasn't highly rated. Any contribution he makes as a Freshman is a bonus.
Could be that he needs another year to grow into the #2 PG spot?
Thompson is the ideal type of guy to have for next season.
Sounds like a decent guy on both ends of the court?
Thought Hart was Pg...?
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.
