    Re: Alabama Hoops Holds Their First Official Practice today.

    A few minor observations from me:

    - Jalen Shackelford is going to be really, really good, and will contribute immediately.

    - John Pettyís ball handling looks drastically improved, and he isnít missing many shots. Kira, Bolden, JP, and Reese on the floor at the same time will be very dangerous. Thatís is going to give great spacing for Kira to drive too.

    - We are tremendously athletic, and we are going to play an exciting brand of basketball. We already knows that, but the video confirms.

    - I really like what I see from Alex Reese. He is going to be a major mismatch for some teams.

    -I canít wait for Nov 5th.

    Also, I will be attending Nate Oats coaching clinic on Oct 4th. I will get to watch practice, which I am very excited about.

    Every time I see Davis I wonder who that guy is; he has worked hard.

    Yes, Reese was a match-up issue for teams last year; hope his defense has improved.

    I am EXCITED

    Trying to temper my expectations but can't help to get excited about their progress thus far.

    I think we are going to shock a lot of teams this year ... plus CNO and staff is really hitting the recruiting road HARD. This twitter site has a lot of good coverage:

    Did I mention I'm excited?

    Everything that Iíve heard from Fleming has been great. Honestly, 80% of rebounding is effort, and that was a part of our problem in a ton of areas last year. I donít think that is going to be as big of a problem as a lot of people think. Just look at both of our matchups with the barn last year. We majorly outsized them, but they out rebounded us. Itís mostly effort.

    I like this comment "Reese is already kind of our perfect four because he can shoot it and space the floor, Oats said." A stretch 4, which means we are gonna spread the floor. We'll be a lot more fun watch!
