Will Conroy! Antonio Anderson! Ryan Forehan-Kelly! Tonight on Versus!

New, 9 comments


Tonight's Versus game features Rio Grande Valley, who sport the second-best record in the league, and the Los Angeles D-Fenders, who sport the second-worst.  Hmmm...well, I suppose there's a chance it could be a good game anyway.  I'll be around and watching the game, so why not try and make this an open thread for anyone who wants to join me and comment.

 

  • Rio Grande Valley's strength is its backcourt, with Will Conroy, Antonio Anderson and backup Jonathan Wallace.  Conroy and Anderson both have gotten 10-day contracts, and both deserve call-ups before the season runs out.
  • Los Angeles has...well, Forehan-Kelly, who has picked up his game in March to bring his season stats right in line with his career numbers.  He's also shooting 48.5 percent from outside this year.
  • There's also Michael Fey, who is talented (at least on the offensive end) but also maddeningly inconsistent.
  • Dar Tucker has started to get consistent playing time, though his performance hasn't always followed.  He had just eight points last night, so maybe he'll play really well tonight!
  • That's right, once again Versus (or is it the D-League's doing?) gives us two teams playing on the second night of a back to back.  Fun!
  • RGV just signed Travis Holmes, who was drafted by the Utah Flash this year but then disappeared, as far as I know.  Holmes played for VMI last season, finishing as the school's career steals leader.  Could he follow Reggie Williams from VMI to the D-League to the NBA?  Maybe!  (But I doubt it, this year anyway.)
  • If you're looking for even more reasons to watch the game, Matthew Brennan has you covered.
