Thought I would start a new Savage thread to talk about what people's expectations are for him in Brooklyn. I'm as excited as anyone to have him back but I think it's smart to temper our expectations until we see how he looks. Assume we get the 4 seed and get UMass in the quarterfinals. 10 minutes of playing time seem fair?

No--probably not worth it to stress the foot for a few minutes.

My expectations are basically nil. Anything we get is a bonus. I'm hoping instead of the three minutes Cartagena plays that kethan can take those and try to get his legs back under him. Maybe even 5 minute or so. Any scoring or defense or whatever would be a bonus.

If Kethan could handle the ball a little bit, if he is in shape to do so (such as having been practicing) that would be a big plus.
Especially if we wind up playing VCU at some point, but have to see if he would be up for the tempo.
Basically any ball-handling without being stripped that allows Joe a small breather would be most helpful.

When I reported the conversation between Keithan Savage and Eric Copes outside the Smith Center after the GW-GM game, some posters discounted the accuracy of Keithan's "two weeks" prediction (that would be two weeks after March 2d, or March 16th). Their reason was that the "boot" came off shortly after that game so the timetable should be moved up. Well, the radio announcer at the game (I did not watch it on any TV) pointed out that Keithan was still wearing a boot. I believe that Keithan's original timetable that he indicated to Eric Copes still holds true. Keithan will not be ready prior to March 16th but by that time the A-10 championship will be over. So look to Keithan participating in a game at the NCAA games -- if of course we make it in.
