    Antino has been one of our steadiest players this season. It's great to have a senior point guard, especially at season's end.

    I sure would have loved to have seen him start and end his college career at UNM. He is a really exciting player and fun to watch play. He is becoming the cog that runs the Lobo offense. You could tell the Wyoming players were dreading having to guard him, or should I say, try to guard him. I think when it's all said and done, he will be one of the fan favorites along the lines of a Greg Brown.

    He definitely showed leadership but more importantly a PG that was the QB - it's been a while. When the season started, it looked like McNeal would be the QB and Sam would be the leader. But as they struggled, we saw a lack of a QB and a leader. Everyone was trying hard, just some missing links.

    Right now Furst has shown the leadership. And now if AJ can duplicate his performance from last night especially on the road, I believe we can make some noise.

    His step back jumper reminds me of Kemba Walker.

    Odd thing is he seems to be much more accurate on threes out of his step back....rare commodity, indeed!

    He's made some big strides with the half court offense and defense vs. early in the year. The way that he uses his speed and ball handling has become a lot more strategic.

    His ability to be a floor general will probably improve as the year progresses and he gains experience. This is his first year playing the point since he was a 2 guard at Akron. His emergence here at PG could make a big difference in how well the Lobos do in conference.

    Perhaps me, but I thought he struggled during the last minute or 2. Lots of over dribbling, not enough passing.

    The title refers to whom the post is referring to, what exactly is wrong with that? Geez!

    Honestly, there’s been a lot of bad news over the past year, so vague titles like just a name do set some people on edge.

    Something like “Props to Antino” would probably be better, but that’s just my thoughts.

    Looked to me that it was deliberate to burn clock and make sure he had the ball in his hands when time was expiring on the shot clock.

    I'm sure it was deliberate but I wasn't happy with it. It took the Lobos out of any offensive flow. They started it too early, like with three minutes or so left.
