Re: 2020 Recruiting

After rsox saw Offseasons post OFFseason is a quality source as I mentioned before. His information comes through often, have to give that consideration. I changed my CB not long ago today after touching base with some other sources on the matter as well. No disrespect to OFFseason but I just wante...

I wonder if Brycen Goodine is a name that we will look into..
UMass has reached out to Goodine, and Noah Fernandes.

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Mike Traini tweeted some minutes ago he's still confident in his prediction. I'm not holding my breath. For what I had heard most recently I was, but OFFseason's post here came after I was asked. To his credit he is not a glory hound and is often correct in his assessments. If he has heard differen...

Re: Jamaica Classic 2020

^ To clarify I was quoting that article re: the changes to MTEs. I read the release from UMass and it does say they'll get two and two from this MTE next season, which is different than what the proposed changes would be. The part that says "up to four games" in an MTE in that article is listed unde...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

What's level of competition Tyriek is playing against? I mean, 2 zillion points and a zillion rebounds is impressive, but against whom? Public high schools in RI, or in other words, not the best. It's the primary reason it would be in Tyriek's best interest to at the very least transfer to prep sch...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

To clarify the last two, and I do always recommend reading the pieces over on Fight Massachusetts, these two players were no longer takes for UMass this cycle. That's different than a player electing to leave on their own. FWIW.

Re: Makar The Younger signs on

Taylor is going to have a very tough act to follow obviously. His Jr A stats aren't as gaudy as Cale's, and he's also a forward not a defenseman. Taylor is not playing in all of Brooks' games this year either, though I do think the plan was for him to come to UMass next year. Taylor is bigger than C...

Re: 2020 Season

For clarification here, I believe what Bamford said was more to the effect that UMass in this recruiting cycle cannot take mostly or all transfers in the hopes of having some sort of immediate, band-aid-type success He was talking about letting the current coaching staff have the time to build the p...

Re: Jamaica Classic 2020

With the new Multi-Team Event (MTE) rules, you won't be getting four games as part of a tournament anymore. That should take effect officially next season, but there may be some tournaments that are implementing it for this season. https://www.bloggingthebracket.com/2019/6/27/18307537/college-basket...

Re: KAEO: ‪Khalea Turner-Morris‬

Does anyone get granted a waiver because their program was in bad shape? Seems like there would be a hell of a lot of waivers in that case. Thanks rsox1221. Would you mind explaining what the criteria are for getting a waiver, and what the situation was at CSU last year that gives them confidence a...

KAEO: Dibaji Walker

As of Friday night Walker had not received a waiver. However I was told that the coaching staff feel "very confident" that he will get one given the situation he left at Cleveland State last season. CSU was, to put it delicately, a hot mess last year and that plays in Walker's favorite regarding the...

Re: KAEO: ‪Khalea Turner-Morris‬

Turner-Morris has been medically DQ'd. He'll remain on scholarship at UMass but it's not a basketball scholarship and doesn't count towards the team's scholarship limit.

Because KTM was medically DQ'd that means that Dibaji Walker is on scholarship and not walking on this season.
