    Lol. Not sure why it's such a far fetched idea that the scouts who travel the country to watch these guys play actually use their own opinions for their rankings, but I guess conspiracy theories can be fun sometimes.

    Five assist is really good, actually I would say great for a small forward

    Four "pets"? That will get you in a lot of trouble in the U.S. unless your last name is Trump.

    So I see it's been referenced here by the czar, but Isaiah didn't do much in the FIBA U-20 tournament. Isaiah had a DNP in their round of 16 game and then got just 2.5 minutes in their semi final loss. With very small sample sizes, he shot 40% overall and 30% from 3 with 14 total rebounds and 3 total assists. The only encouraging stat was that he did manage to block 4 shots in his limited playing time.

    Contrast Isaiah's lack of playing time and production to Kayne Henry from Great Britain who will play at Jacksonville State next year. Kayne actually shot worse than Isaiah (over a much larger sample) with 33% from the field and 31.6% from 3, but he averaged 11.9 points a game with 8.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.9 steals over 30 plus minutes a game.

    Now Kayne is a good year and a half older than Isaiah (Kayne is 20, Isaiah is still 18) and his team situation could have been quite different (Germany was much more successful in the tournament), so those number should be taken with a grain of salt. It's certainly something to at least raise your eyebrow at that a top 100 kid barely made a dent in this tournament while a kid going to Jacksonville State was an/the anchor on another team and was able to put up numbers.

    The German player for NDSU put up better numbers also...Hopefully Ihnen will eventually bloom ...was hoping he would his production would support optimism of a likelihood of him starting and or putting up solid numbers for the gophs this season...with him being the most heralded incoming recruit

    How many other players on the German team, or any other team for that matter, are 18? If there were a bunch that were 18 then I would be a bit concerned. If he's one of the very few then I think this is a good thing. Think about it for a second. How often are freshmen better than Juniors? Yes, with the star players that happens. But most of the time it doesn't. I have no idea if he will do well or not but I'm willing to give him a chance.

    If Ihnen is not ready ( I admit I have believed he would be) there are certainly others in the mix at the 3 spot:

    Willis and Williams are also possibilities there or we could play Carr and Willis at the guards and Kalscheur on the wing

    So, if we recall he would have preferred not to participate on the German team. But the UofM has a rule he can't be on campus until 30 days before enrollment or some such marker coming from Europe. So he was forced....essentially to be on the team. He likely knew he was not going to get playing time. Pretty hard to impress or improve sitting on the bench...practices likely focused on the chosen older guys learning "the system" versus competition.

    Ihnen can play! He doesn't have to beat out Coffey or Murphy or McBrayer to see the floor. Give him a chance fellas...he is going to play well for the Gophers!

    True. He started the last game. He is still raw, but with tremendous upside.

    He had 31 points and 7 three pointers in this game back in Dec.

    You may criticize the opposition, but you can’t criticize his shooting.

    That video certainly shows that he is raw. The left guide hand flies out and his release is a bit slow. Good coaching will fix those things. But, you can see he has athletic potential.
    I'll be surprised if he contributes a lot this season...based solely upon this video.
