: : : : : : : If Dasca was that good, he would not be
: : : : : : : playing at Costa Mesa!!!
: : : : : : :What an ignorant comment - smh
: : : : : Nico Dasca is really good, and has been for all 4 years. Good competitor, has become a very good shooter, pretty good floor manager and does a great job setting up Hefner (great shooter with deep range).. the problem is they've had a revolving door at head coach, they had decent size his FR year but it's been basically him and Herzog for the last 2 years.
: : : : : As for the ignorant comment about "If he were that good..." He's not a D1 caliber player (too small, not quite quick enough), so if he's not a D1 player anyway, what's wrong with just going to the school you're supposed to go to and enjoy four years with your friends? Geez, what a concept! Then you play AAU in July, play well enough to get some looks and then go play D2 or NAIA..
: : : : Some kids play D-1, some D-2,Some D-3,some Junior College, some Prep! He will play after High School and this is the 5 percent of High School Basketball Players! Congrats for being a great Student/Athlete and playing in College.
: : : A great high school player doesn't necessarily translate to a D1 player, just like a number 1 pick doesn't translate to a good pro player. There are great college players that aren't good pros. You can be first team at the level you are playing but not be great at the next level whatever that level is. But fortunately it's the award for what you are doing now not who thinks you can play college basketball.
: : Dasca is a good HS player. He probably will play somewhere at the next level, just like a bunch of other OC kids, and thousands of kids across the country do every year. Unfortunately when Mike Moore comes on here and says he's the best PG in OC, posters end up attacking the kid, which isn't fair to the kid. Mike's the idiot, but the kid gets the criticism. It happens all the time, though. Kids gets over hyped, whether it's by Mike, Julius, Silver, etc. etc. and when the kids don't end up being what they've been proclaimed to be, a bunch of adults talk crap about the kids. In the end, its just a bunch of kids playing basketball, a bunch of adults making money off of them and their parents, and another bunch of adults debating about it this forum.
: : Very accurate last post. Mike no doubtedly is a joke and whoever is dumb enough to pay him money, the hoke’s on them.
If Coach Moore says he can play, he can play! He has over 100 players playing in College. Most importantly Coaches and Scouts call him to ask "What level a Kid can play"! I know he understands the level, since he was a Pro Player, High School, College, and Pro Coach.
