Dusty Hannahs
« 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.

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.

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.

Par Bradley says Dusty is far more athletic than he was and Pat is the all time leader in 3pt shots at Arkansas. He believes he will fit in.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 was excited to get him. He can possibly earn a starting spot. I certainly expect 15 to 20 min a game and 7 - 10 points. Should be balanced scoring this year. Dusty will get some shots.
