Title: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: Modsquad24 on July 04, 2015, 10:00:53 am
I was just curious what you guys that have seen him play think his role on this team is going to be? I know he can shoot really good, but is he a starter/play a ton of minutes type or a Al Dillard spark plug that averages about 10 min per game type? Thanks.

My opinion is that he will not get much playing time because he is a poor defender.  Not quick enough to keep up in the full court.  Probably not quick enough to create his own shot on O, and we aren't likely to run sets to get him open.

I seen him play once. In Jonesboro I'm not sure he will start but think he will play more than 10 minutes. Will have to see how good on defense he is.

Probably will average about 15 mpg this upcoming season.

I don't think Bell is any better defensively, and is not as good of an all-around shooter, and he certainly played.

Dusty will play. How much? We'll have to see. More than 10 MPG, IMO.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: What's Shakin' Macon on July 04, 2015, 07:04:16 pm
He might have played 10 mpg or less on last year's team but there is an availability of playing time on this year's squad.

I hope Hannahs can be a consistent 3 point shooter, we are going to need that. I think he will be vital for spacing the floor when Witt/Beard are driving. Our defense and rebounding will be a struggle regardless of whether Hannahs get major minutes or not.

Bell's perimeter D has improved dramatically.

Bell's perimeter D has improved dramatically.
Definitely better than his freshman year. He was completely lost on D that year, our fans never understood his lack of playing time but it should've been crystal clear.

My issue with Bell is that he was wildly inconsistent last season and doesn't have the all around game to make up for his shot not falling.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: Hawg Red on July 05, 2015, 12:51:26 am
Bell's perimeter D has improved dramatically.

Cannot co-sign on "dramatically." Nope. A dramatic improvement on defense would be James Harden this year compared to last.

My point still stands that he and Hannahs are similar defensively, so that won't be a reason why Hannahs doesn't play.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: gmarv on July 05, 2015, 09:27:01 am
well from what I,m reading here,it looks like it gives us another 3 point shooter who can replace bell when hes not on.i don,t see how that can be a bad thing.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: k.c.hawg on July 05, 2015, 12:31:58 pm
I see 10-12 minutes per game and 6.5 ppg. I think his ppg will be a result of 12-15 point games along with 3 point games. If Hannahs and Bell can put together some games with 8 3's between them and then one be hot when the other is off I see effective production from them on the perimeter.

that's kindof what I,m thinking and if bell should hit upon being consistent game in and game out so much the better.

I'd say that he'll play as much as his defense allows, although he won't be the only one in that category.

I agree with Lanny. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he's a 10+PPG scorer for us. I was impressed with his handles in the red white game last year. I look forward to seeing him play.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: TexArkHogFan on July 05, 2015, 05:18:50 pm
I am really looking forward to watching this team play.  With Hannahs, Whitt, Bell and Beard all capable of filling it up on any given night, I don't think we'll see much zone against us and in the past that has been our downfall.  This may well be one of the highest scoring teams we've had in recent history.  Of course, our defense may give up a ton of points also, but I think we'll see some exciting games. 
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: HoopS on July 05, 2015, 06:25:33 pm
I keep reading doubts about his defense. So what is it that you've seen that he does poorly? Slow feet? Gets caught out of position? Lazy? Just curious because clearly some have doubts and I haven't seen him as much as many of you.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs

He's white, so people assume he's not athletic.
Title: Re: Dusty Hannahs
Post by: Hogimus Prime on July 05, 2015, 10:51:51 pm
I think DH will come off the bench and get as many or more minutes as Bell.  If MA is going to play a 3 guard lineup then someone outside of Beard and Whitt is going to have to step and be more than a one trick pony, which Bell has been his first three years, so I could see Hannahs being that third guard.

Arkansas's coaches do not view Hannahs as a poor defender, and they believe he is a versatile player who can score from anywhere and play as a combo guard on both ends. They have had him for a year. I bet he comes out looking like a different player.

I saw Dusty on TV while at TT and in HS and he will have a role here for sure.  He shoots well and is athletic enough to play in our system.    He will have to play smart which I think that is his strong suit. I hope he doesn't think he is only a 3 pt. shooter and comes off the bench firing but lets the game come to him.  I would love for him to shoot somewhere around 38% from behind the arc and score around 10 PPG.  That would be huge for our team.   We will need to set some picks for him sometimes to get him a good look because he will not be able to create all of his shots particularly if they guard him with a long  and athletic kid.

People with real names who don't post on message boards and are known to possess good skills at evaluating basketball talent have told me that Hannahs is much more than just a three point shooter. The notion that he can't play defense and can't create his own shot is bogus according to them. We will find out soon enough.

You guys way, way underestimate Mr. Hannahs.

Mike is going to create an unstoppable offensive juggernaut with Hannahs, Bell, and Whitt firing up threes at near record rates!!

And Moses and (fill in the blank) will be there to mop up the rare misses!!

Now, we will probably need to score 85 or so a game to win games, but we're going to have the shooters to do it.

And they're probably going to have to play 35+ minutes a game, but since we won't be playing much defense, that could work.

Paris, France - USA East Coast used a 17-2 third period run to defeat a talented Paris AMW All Star team 90-72.

Game Quick Facts:
- Syracuse's Kaleb Joseph led all scorers with 23 points
- Arkansas' Dusty Hannahs provided the offensive firepower necessary for East Coast to win tonight. With 17 points, 11 in the second half, Hannahs broke the opponents chance at a comeback by draining back-to-back deep threes against a desperation zone late

I haven't seen him play since he was high in school, but PA was in our conference. I was not wowed by him to be playing a lot of minutes at a power conference school at that time. He's thick for a guard, and can shoot leaning in, going away, etc, but our guards got by him a lot and Hunter was cleaning stuff up at the basket because we got by him. I'm a little scared to be honest. Again, that was, what? Three years back? Could be a different player defensively.

Really?  Neither guy has played a minute in the 2015-16 season, and yet somehow you just know this??

I thought Bell improved his offensive game quite a bit from the previous year.  He developed a nice mid-range jumper, and had a good year.  I expect him to make further improvements.

It frequently amazes me how some players become adored by fans, protected to an extreme, and have their deficiencies covered and excused ad nauseam, while others become frequent targets of attacks by fans, with every deficiency highlighted and every bit of contribution diminished.

I just don't get that.

I've seen it with Brandon Allen and our WR corp.  It's never okay to criticize BA for anything, yet those same BA defenders are just fine with calling our WR's crap over and over.

I'm seeing the same thing with Bell.  He's not an All-American performer, but he's no POS either.  What he brings to the table has value.  His production this past year was an important factor in the season the Hogs had.  He's never been in any trouble, as far as I know.  His attitude as far as I know has been good.  He's stayed in the program and given great effort, as much as anyone else.

And I'm already seeing it with Bell and Hannahs.  Mystifying.

Over-react much?

Hannahs is a better ball-handler, FT shooter, and slasher than Bell. They're both adequate defensively. That isn't me attacking Anthlon Bell or saying he isn't a good basketball player. I just think, from what I know/have seen, that Hannahs is a better player. Is that okay? Do we know have to think that every player on the team is equal? I don't get this place. It's become crybaby central. It's becoming not worth it to post my thoughts here because people would rather whine and cry about EVERYTHING than actually talk hoop.

Yeah, sometimes.

It just hit a nerve I have, and, yes, I do over-react to that sometimes.  It's just very annoying to me how some Hogs become beloved and others hated, and an injustice to the kids who worked hard to give their best, only to have fans constantly put them down.

I've just seen frequent put downs of Bell on here, and I don't think most of is anywhere close to being justified.

I don't have anything against Bell. I don't think he's the worst player on the team. I just think Hannahs is better. They'll both player and give us some good 3 point shooting this year. I just think Hannahs will do a little more than hit 3s. If Bell can do more than that (consistently), he'll have to show me. I hope he does. His defense has gotten better and he's shown flashes of a mid-range game and some passing ability. No consistency in those areas, though. Hannahs' numbers from Texas Tech aren't that great, but those were really bad teams and he was the only long-range threat out there. I think he did very well considering.

Maybe some fans are just frustrated by Bell's hot/cold act. When he's cold, it's hard to argue a reason why he should be on the court. He just didn't do anything to compensate for his inability to hit shots last year. All of those things I said he got better at (the mid-range J, passing), he only seemed to do when he was also hitting 3s. I think that's just frustrating people. People get excited by a 3 point shooter, so when a guy teases them so much, they might get tired of it. I honestly haven't seen any true hatred or personal insults directed at Bell. Doesn't mean it hasn't happened, I just haven't seen it.

I just think, from what I know/have seen, that Hannahs is a better player. Is that okay? Do we know have to think that every player on the team is equal? I don't get this place. It's become crybaby central. It's becoming not worth it to post my thoughts here because people would rather whine and cry about EVERYTHING than actually talk hoop.

BDH will get fired up on ya ;D. I really think more of his ire was directed at the top quote rather than yours! A lot of what he says is very salient, I think Bell showed much improvement on defense all around and made some great plays in transition D ( I can recall a few blocks he made in transition that were big time especially for a guard).
I said last year the team would only go as far as Bell went and it was somewhat accurate, the emergence of Beard in the middle of the season kind of shaded that somewhat, however when Beard faded Bell had to pick it up and he did for the most part. Bell will have an even larger affect on this year's team, I believe he will be your scoring leader for the season, and I expect his defense will also improve!

Back to his point however it is sporting to Bash Bell in here, but not Jacorey for some reason maybe now it is OK after his couple of off field incidents.
In MMQB you can't mention anything BA does less than great, but you can act like our receivers couldn't play for UAPB and that is OK!

I'm excited about Hannahs, I think he's underrated in a lot of things he can do.  I watched him in the red/white game and at an open practice, and he was doing a lot of slashing and attacking the basket, when most people think of him they just think of a 3 point shooter, but that's not all of his game.  I think he'll surprise a lot of people this year, and probably be one of the top scorers on the team.

After the PA Blue-Gold Night last night, a guy I know walked through Alex Hugg Gymnasium. Dusty Hannahs was shooting 3- pointers and trainer Todd Ross was rebounding for him. 8:00 on a Friday night....nice work ethic Dusty! WPS!

Slasher? I will have to see it first.

I watched him while he was at Tech. Never saw him slash at all. He was a stand still shooter at the time.

I read the article where the coach in Europe likes how his game has grown since last season. I hope he is as improved as reported. He is a big key to our season next year. He could be that guy that steps and takes some pressure off of Whitt and spreads the other team's defense out.

Thoughts on the Texas Tech transfer who average a little over 7pts a game in the Big12.

Hannahs definitely validated some posters' opinions and silenced other's doubts. He had a very good Razorback career.

Over 1,000 points in just two years, and our leading scorer both seasons. And he left with his degree as a fan-favorite.

Not a bad run for a young man some posters said would have little impact on the program.

Back to eat my words. I predicted 6.5 ppg with a mix of 12-15 point games and 3 point games to reach reach the avg. Really enjoyed his 2 years, loved the way that guy wasn't afraid to take it on himself when we were down or in a tight game. Super glad he didn't settle on Tech for 4 years. An outstanding Razorback!!!

Agreed.  He really developed in his season sitting out after transferring.  He developed into a reliable scorer.  Glad he is a Hog!

Before the downfall of the team, I thought he would get 8-10 a game. Now, it wouldn't surprise me if he got 14+. He's gonna have plenty of opportunities.
I may be wrong, but with our lack of true offensive play makers, I can't see how he's not a main contributor.

Hey, got one right!

One of my favorite things about Dusty was that you could really tell he loved being a Razorback. You  could tell from day one that he was having a blast and I think that rubbed off on the team.
