Competition at the 5

Before yesterday’s practice, Meyers Leonard dropped ten straight buckets from behind the three-point arc. This is Tisdale territory, and Mike took some umbrage at the encroachment.

Friendly competition? Perhaps.

But don’t believe for a second that these guys don’t want to beat each other at everything they do.


Bruce Weber described Jereme as the most coachable kid he’s ever had. Jereme’s cognizant of his strengths and weaknesses.

He’s also among the best at listening/responding to media questions. Where some players give stock answers, Jereme seems to absorb information, compute, and respond informatively in real time.

The maturation process continues. You can see it all over his face sort of.
