Re: 2019-20 season

If we compete consistently on both ends of the floor and cut down on turnovers, I think (hope) we will finally have a season where we get better as it goes along and not the opposite. Seems simple...but simple doesn’t always equal easy. I think the actual ceiling (record-wise) will hinge on Samba’s ...

Re: 2019-20 season

So it sounds like it’s gonna be: Baptiste, sr, big Turner-Morris, jr, big Mitchell, fr, big Chatman, so, big Samba, so, wing (smaller big also) Pierre, jr, wing Jackson, fr, wing Santos, fr, wing Weeks, fr, wing Clergeot, jr, guard Buggs, fr, guard East, fr, guard Mitchell, fr, guard (if he commits)...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I don’t necessarily have a ton (or any) expectations for our freshman point guards (assuming we are going to land one more), as I have no real idea how quickly they will be ready to play, but I don’t think rankings play much of a factor in all about how easy the transition is. Sure the top of the cl...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

I just nose around and find things really. Figuring out what is good and what is a bunch of shit is the biggest thing. Then I do watch a little bit but (I think) there’s only so much you can tell from what you see and also how quickly it will translate. I find it it interesting even if I know I don’...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Seems to be a lot of Indiana and South Carolina chatter for Cross so I am betting he will not be the easiest fish to reel in. I know we offered that Farris kid -- I think we will need some more help up front with Baptiste and potentially KTM both bidding adieu after next year. Would leave Tre, Sy an...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I don’t put a ton of stock in high school stats — I guess I look more at percentages than counting stats but I don’t drill down deep enough to know what the stats really tel us. I dont necessarily know the competition very well and think some stats (like rebounds and assists) can be inflated a bit.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Twitter Detective Agency (TDA) update: The Mitchell kid is now following/being followed by 7 Twitter accounts directly associated with UMass basketball and according to Fight Massachusetts is setting up an official visit for when the current dead period ends later this month. Seems like he could be ...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

I agree these kids do seem to have bought in and have brought some excitement to the program. I also know it’s a “been there, done that” situation. It’s the offseason and this is what happens during the offseason around the country every year. I think the tricky part is the coaching staff making sur...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Looks like one Mitchell (Tre) is reaching out to the other Mitchell (Kolton) on Twitter so it seems like they are trying to reel him in here.

Here’s one recruit that I am sold on and it only took two minutes! Plays above the rim, inspires his teammates, ball skills...he’s the total package. Hope we get him...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Yeah you have to trust the coaches until they prove you can’t trust them. I don’t think it’s been proven either way with this staff yet for a variety of reasons. And so I’ll trust them until they prove otherwise. If they prove otherwise. I hope they don’t.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Yes it means he threw fast and threw strikes that day. Maybe he doesn’t throw strikes the next time out and the time after that. I think most folks who get paid to do this probably want to see someone play more than once unless the talent is so far off the charts they don’t have to. That is not Mitc...

Re: 2020 Recruiting -- not kidding

I don’t have any inside info. I just know what I read and what I’ve read is that Cross is getting a lot of attention. Indiana and South Carolina seem to be quite interested in him. I think he’ll be tough to get but maybe he wants to stay local and maybe Bergeron is his Pied Piper. Knock on wood we w...
