Just wanted to give a shout out to Miles, our man in the middle.
Has any player on the team improved as much as did Miles??
I always thought Scheyer was awesome and I never doubted that Nolan would make the leap that he did this year.
But Miles? The improvement from last season to this season is beastly: from 1.8 points and 1.4 rebounds to 8.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in less than 20 minutes of play per game. Wow.
The media and even some here on the board talk at length about Mason's potential without saying much about Miles. While I agree that Mason has probably the most upside of any player on the team (he looked so good in the Wake Forest game), I still have to give mad props to Miles who's getting it done for us. And the really cool thing is that he's just getting started -- Miles is going to be an even better player by the end of the season.
What a steal this guy has been. If his high school class was re-ranked again no way would he be in the 80s and 90s. Mobile, athletic big man that can rebound, block, defend dunk and make put backs? Check!
