i railed against some on this board that were upset when pascal left cause they thought we were ripe for a special season if he had stayed. my apologies, you were right we would've had a real special season if he stayed one more year. Pascal's hustle and defensive intensity would've fit in perfectly with coach weir's uptempo style of play. top 25, longest win streak in the country and a real good chance to win a game or two at the ncaa's is what we could've had if he stayed. but I don't begrudge him for leaving, wish him the best of luck.
that said, coach weir's first season has been special. now lets go upset Baylor and make this a truly memorable season.
i'll be driving up to Tulsa to cheer on our aggies. shoot me a DM if you're going and want to meet for a drink and talk aggie basketball.
He is still full time with the Raptors. He only played in the Monday Raptors 905 game, because the game was played in Toronto. I believe that was only the 2nd game he has played with the D-League squad.
If Pascal ever wants to be more than a 9th man, learning to operate offensively on the perimeter is critical. This includes being able to make a play off the closeout in addition to hitting jumpers. I'm glad to see him getting some run at a level where he can contribute in a more meaningful way.
... in defense of FLJ, I also was happy for Pascal. This is because I was excited to see a dude I cheer for realize his dream and the dream of his recently passed father. That real, tangible life success for a real person is more important to me than a couple more wins or even an NCAA run, which is just entertainment at the end of the day.
