Bears add Grad Transfer Center from New Mexico St.

Postby BEARZ77 » June 2nd, 2017, 5:03 pm

Bears add a little depth and size with Tanveer Bhullar , a 7'3 graduate transfer from New Mexico St. Played most in 2015-2016 when he averaged about 5 pts and 5 rbs. May allow Bears to rs 6'10 frosh Darrian Scott, but at worse gives us a different look to try for a few minutes against teams with superior size inside.

Are we just going to stop acting like MSU isn't the best team in the league anymore.

This addition takes them from a team that is going the the tournament, to a team that might win a game or two.

Unfortunately with a coach like Lusk, nothing is a given, he's been that bad. Over the last couple years various Bear fans have run numbers about his record against top 150 teams etc. in his tenure and it's staggering to see just how inept he's been. And of course what that leads to is questioning your talent as well; are Bear fans over-rating their roster or is it just Lusk, has been a question for a number of years now. I think this year, that question will be clearly answered as even outside sources recognize this is a roster that should be no worse than top 3 MVC and honestly probably better than that even. Our fear of course is that the roster + Lusk = 20-12 , 3rd/4th and they extend Lusk. If he wins I have no problem with him being rewarded[ he has talent on the roster beyond this year, and maybe that would mean he's matured some as a coach] but win for me is 25-7 , 1st/2nd MVC, NCAA or NIT at worse. It would seem to be a pivotal year in his career at MSU, but we've thought that for a couple years. It could be a great year, it could be a train wreck, but his history suggests it will be painfully in between. But I like our guys and we at least will have some entertaining talent to watch.

Seriously? Adding a 7 foot plus guy who averages 5 points a game at his best is going to make them the best team in the league? Maybe you were being facetious, it's hard to tell in print.

I think he's just looking cumulative at this point; the one thing we lacked was size/depth in the middle. Now we have some. If we get 10 -12 minutes of serviceable play from him in games where the other team has significant size, then he will have been a good get.

That 5 ppg was 2 years ago.

Last year he played a whopping 7 minutes per game and averaged 2 points, 2 rebounds, less than 1 block and shot 52% from the floor. At 7'3 you should probably shoot higher than 52%

He's also like a 46% free throw shooter.

He did all that playing in the WAC against programs like Chicago State, UC-Irvine, Seattle, UMKC, Utah Valley, and OOC games like Samford, Bethune-Cookman, Nicholls State.

Let's not act like this is a dominating 5* First Team All Big12, Big 10, ACC, Big East transfer.

Like who said anything close to that; certainly nobody from MSU is seeing this as anything but depth and size off the bench. But he is experienced, he is 7'2 , and he just makes us less vulnerable to any guy over 6'9 having a free pass in the middle. With the 6'11 freshman Scott, we now can run some size at bigger front lines if the quickness and athleticism of Johnson/Church/Scurry isn't matching up effectively.

Funny you'd diss his stats when your two post reserves[ Dahl/Friedman] combined to average 2.1 ppg and 2.1 rbs, and shot .375 and .167 from the foul line. And neither came close to 52% from the field. You'd think players their size could shoot a little better.

Dahl played 50 total minutes against D1 teams last season. Half of them came against Wyo and UNC. UNC was a 40 point loss and Wyoming had Carlson pick up a 3 first half fouls plus a T and Koch 3 first half fouls

Friedman only played if every other player that could play a 5 spot couldn't play

I can also tell you that if UNI signed one of them as a transfer there would be about zero discussion of them as a piece that will/could put UNI over the top.

Again, that post was from a fan from another school, and again I think they either were being facetious or probably were just talking collectively about the roster. Can't really control how other fan bases perceive our roster.
And yeah it's probably true there would not have been any UNI posts about a guy like that putting you over the top; I mean it'd be hard to fit those in over all those telling us how a guard who has averaged 4 ppg to this point in his career and shot 25% and 32% from trey the last two years is gonna be that guy.

Every MVC team could do worse than adding an experienced 7-2 grad transfer with their 13th scholarship.

GreatAgain may or may not be continuing to troll LU (you'll notice he commented on every LU recruiting thread). He dumped all over LU for adding a 7 foot grad transfer from North Dakota who averaged 5 and 2 boards in 12 minutes last season, saying we were swooning over the addition and way overrating him even though he'll prob only add 15mpg.

Also BEARZ definitely isn't claiming this is a superstar player.... adding a player with big size who can play right away is solid. Bearz also noted it was 2 years ago when he averaged 5 and 5, was a pretty understated post. Some of ya'll gotta chillllllllllllll.

Not sure what a Rambler is, but I think it might be a clown.

The difference between this guy and your sub par guy is that Missouri State isn't expecting their guy to come in, start, and play 20 minutes a game. You guys are. Missouri State just needs this guy to play five to ten minutes a game to give Church a breather.

And unlike you guys this guy has actually played in the NCAA tournament.
