Travis on Scruggs

Postby muskieman » Tue Sep 11, 2018 9:15 pm

"I think he could be an all-conference-level guy, I really do. He’s like Marcus Smart with the Boston Celtics. It doesn’t always look pretty with Paul but he just gets it done. He’s tough, he’s competitive, he plays to win,”
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Shannon has add this tidbit

"Paul Scruggs graded his freshman performance a D-minus. But did you know he was coming off an MCL tear, surgery and a 30-pound weight gain?"

well it was gained because he could not workout because of the injury.

We saw spurts of what he could do and thought he was decent after 10 games. He is so fast and tough to guard. His only issue I saw was his outside shot which also improved throughout the year. Heard he was shooting well this summer so I would expect he and Naji to have very good years

I expect him to be an impact player defensively along with Marshall and others. X had the athletes, length, and depth to pressure more. I never understand why CM never did, especially when he got throttled by teams like Nova who showed him the template. I expect Steele to pressure a lot more this year.
