He also says he continues learning and growing as a coach


He is on the National radar. Awesome for UH.

I would really love to see Powell get more minutes. Every time he gets on the floor I see good things. He already has a better jumper than the other bigs, and he has the athleticism to play above the rim for dunks and rebounds.

It’s about matchups for him.

He’s still “undersized” and a liability defensively.

Most of the bigs he would go up against outweigh him by 20/30 lbs.

He needs to really hit the gym and the meal plan this off-season.
