Re: Pitino to UMass

Wait this thread isn't a joke and/or started by Steve? Am I losing my mind?

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

there seemed to be the least amount of buzz about CJ Jackson coming in, but he looks to be hitting 3s at a high rate. Small sample size, I know, but he looks to be a fluid guard with good length, and a knockdown shooter to boot? "intriguing" I'd disagree. Unless I'm reading the room wrong. I think ...

Re: Virgin Islands, August 2019, exhibition trip

So was Carl the one that had a passport issue? I thought I heard somewhere MM said a player was having an issue with that. Correct. I didn't want to give the name until it was obvious and also to clarify that he wasn't left behind due to injury. I'm a touch confused. This is the US Virgin Islands. ...

Re: 2019-20 season

Solid. 4 Power 5 teams, 7 NE teams, 2 neutral games in a tournament. Not much to complain about here. Not too watered down, and not too strong. Couple of swing games. I can see anywhere from 5-8 to 8-5 in there. I wonder if the Akron game is part of a football package as well seeing as how the footb...

Agreed. His upper body strength and length help make up for his pretty bad footwork IMO.

I COMPLETELY missed the verbal from Sean East until today.

Am I missing anything?

Only one Senior on scholarship next year. That is a complete rebuild and hopefully no more players leave early after next season.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

That is quite the mixed bag of schools. Intriguing though. As for the PG situation. We need a guy who can get 5-6 APG, control the pace on offense and hit a couple 3's. That's basically it. We don't need a guy who has to score 12+ PPG or anything like that. Feed Mitchell and Pierre and put them in ...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

We went from having a weird feeling about still having 3 open scholarships on Friday, most of us wanting at least 1 commitment from a PG with those 3 open spots to Sunday getting a commitment that helps us fill a need at PG and the feeling is lukewarm at best about it on here. I'm not sure I get it.

Re: 2019-20 season

So we've got the following for sure on our schedule. Rutgers (Home) South Carolina (Home) UVA (neutral) St. John's/Arizona State (neutral) 2 of CCSU/Rider/Columbia (Home/Home) So 7 more TBD I'd imagine based off of prior schedules. Who would everyone like to see on there? Realistically. We know we a...

Re: 2019 Hall of Fame Classic At Mohegan Sun

Just as I suspected. I have no proof in how they determine the matchups, but you'd have to think they'd want the two best "supposed" teams in the finals, for the tournaments sake and for the teams involved SOS. I'll go out on a limb and predict Umass plays St. John's in the other game. They are a tr...

He and Melrose have been awesome this entire tournament. https://youtu.be/Gu_wM35c-qI I know I'm in the minority but I'll disagree there. They were both pretty terrible last night. All they did was hype up the best players and talk a...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Don't get me wrong I'd love to have Adams-Woods here, but why the massive drop from Nebraska to some of the schools he's considering now? It doesn't make me think less of him as a player, just wondering where that is coming from. I know Nebraska isn't Michigan, but it's still a Big 10 school that is...
