We were seeded higher than we deserved. Awful game for a national audience to see. Had to hurt recruiting. Ugh.
An NCAA appearance hurt recruiting? You can't be serious.

Re: 2019-20 Coaching Changes thread

Truman is rolling over in his grave. At least UMass had (has?) a modicum of cache to it... Good luck to whoever inherits the dumpster fire of UMKC. On the other hand, UMKC never had anything to lose. Nothing more than a single postseason appearance in their 30 seasons at DI. And that was an invitat...

Re: Who will not be back next year?

^ In the last 5 years I haven't heard of a single case of a school denying a LOI release indefinitely. Sometimes they fight it, but nowadays with social media they always end up backing down to public pressure. Outright denial no but as stated they have put restrictions on where the can transfer to...

I hope Jalen Thomas still wants to come.
I understand that an assistant is likely the connection a recruit has with the school. But if you're coming to a school because of an assistant...

Re: Around the A-10 (2018-19)

So it should be NCAA T- VCU ,St Loius ...........-NIT-Dayton ,St Bona, Davidson...No? If we had 5.... Yessir. And while Bona wasn't likely to make it as an NIT at-large (25% chance), since they did make the conference title game I think one could argue they got robbed. Some have certainly argued Sc...

With the later start hopefully they can organize a few buses there so the students can go.
The Militia is organizing a road trip for members.

Re: 2019 Recruiting

“Challenges” and “problems.” Sounds more like you are describing the role of a parent, social worker, or friend. A coach can certainly be empathetic, but maybe the point is to have more players with less “challenges.” Good luck with that. The head coach’s focus should be on the court. I'm in 100% a...

Re: Around the A-10 (2018-19)

FWIW I think the A10 will have several NIT teams as well. Who you thinking? Davidson, Dayton ..... I ran a logistic regression on KenPom rating vs postseason appearances for the past nine seasons (since the NCAAT expanded to 68 teams in 2011). Using that I summed the probability of making at least ...

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Closest on staff to relate to players... This idea of being able to 'relate to players' has started to be thrown around here quite a bit. What exactly does it mean? It means understanding the challenges they face as a D1 basketball player. Maybe even challenges specific to UMass or the Atlantic 10....

Re: 2019 Recruiting

Me three len+jackson.

Closest on staff to relate to players would be Lucious Jordan who was a guard at Loyola (MD) and Albany in the early 2000s. Jacob Kurtz was a walk-on at Florida.
