Sounds like Anderson is challenging Steere a bit there too before his first game. I’m not worried. He’s got skills. If he starts putting it together halfway through Big East play, he will be a big boon for us inside,. His five fouls are invaluable as we have seen when we have had to bench a guy like Roberts for two early fouls etc. looking forward to the addition.

Anderson gotta create a possessed freaking beast in Steere, rebound and dunk on opponents like an animal.

Disappointing to hear, but hopefully correct on the undersell.

I very much doubt that he's soft. But even if he is, the worst we have is a backup big man with good hands who's been listed between 245 and 261 lbs.

Think this is just MA possibly doing 2 things one is to motivate Steere since all he's probably heard since joining is he's the guy we've been missing can't let that get to his head. The other is possibly to temper expectations because the last thing this kid needs is to have a few bad games and have the entire fan base calling for his head saying he's not a BE player and waiting for him to transfer, calling him a bust, Etc.

Steere may just be one of those guys who thrives with some extra motivation. Reason I say that is I recall after preseason MA making a comment that Steere needed to improve his conditioning. Maybe I'm misremembering, but don't think so.

Steere's father is a complete beast. Would be honestly shocked if he plays soft.

But why does anyone have to be motivated to play their first game anywhere.?
Me if i was good enough to play in div 1 college, as my first game approaches I'd be off the hook, wanted to make sure my first game wasn't a crappy game, i wouldn't be able to sleep.
Only place you'd find me is at gym.

I'll guess some need motivation though

Being more assertive with his size could be referencing that he needs to play more inside and also as a freshman, he needs to be able to use his size but not be a foul a minute player.
Fans need to back off expectations for Ian and let him grow into a contributing part of the team. He will be making mistakes at first--hopefully he grow into a competitive, team oriented player.
