Re: 2020 Recruiting

^ I do think we need to add a big or forward who can rebound.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

The biggest issue with one big is if, god forbid, Mitchell gets injured. They would lose every game by 30 I think the obsession with having lots of size is outdated in today’s game, especially in the A10. If you have 2-3 good forwards who can rebound the ball, the need for a more traditional big ma...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

That's a nice way of putting it. I was gonna say something like this: We have two PG's in the freshman class, we have another PG in the 2020 class, and now we would add a fourth PG? What's the point of that? (Get it? The POINT of that? Hahah) I haven't seen Odukale or Garcia play in games, but my r...

Re: Game 15, 2019-20: La Salle (1/8)

I noticed in our last time out with under two minutes, McCall was red-faced screaming at Sean East. I hate to sound like I'm trashing him because I really like his game, and I think he does a lot more good than he does bad...I just wish he'd be a little more careful with the ball...and it's obvious...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

He was there...got a chance to see him a couple weeks ago...he knows how to play and has a strong, athletic presence. They want him bad and I agree Kid can play but is a bother 6-5 wing really the guy to take. Tre is great but have to have a guy to spell him if he gets in foul trouble or gets fatig...

I mean you just go on the roster page and the DOB’s are right there.
Have you actually seen them listed? Because I'm not seeing a date of birth anywhere on the official roster, or in the player bios.

Re: 2019-20 season

Seems odd that his mom would know the exact ages of everyone, but I for sure don't know. If he is the youngest, which would be surprising, it can't be by much.

Re: 2019-20 season

Oddly it is "younger" in class only. I'm almost certain Sy was the youngest player on the team in terms of age since he was fresh out of HS whereas all of our current freshmen did a year of prep after HS. You bring up a good point that Sy probably isn't a year older than most of our freshmen, and a...

Re: 2019-20 season

Pierre is within 4 or 5 games of 1,000 points. The career points on this team show how utterly inexperienced they are. Second is Clergeot with 312 and third is Mitchell with 170. TM has played 12 games and he's third on the team in career points. This actually makes me feel really good about this t...

Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

I'm pretty sure it's been made clear this is not an academic or disciplinary issue. I think you're wrong... it's been made clear it's not a basketball related issue. I believe the terminology used has been "personal reasons"... which means it's not basketball related, but could be anything else. Bu...

Re: KAEO: Sy Chatman

^ The fact that Sy is still at UMass, and still part of the team in what appears to be an unofficial capacity, the only conclusion that makes any sense to me is some sort of school suspension handed down by UMass, and not by the basketball team. I'm not expecting him back any sooner than after the 1...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

How many of us, myself included, didn't think all that highly of him when he was recruited. He's been better than I expected, and gotten where he is faster than I expected. I think his rapid ascension is partly attributable to Chatman & Kolton Mitchell being out extended time. Keon might start at P...
