Re: 2020 Recruiting

I'm as petty as the next guy and might even take special joy in watching Drexel beat Pitt tomorrow. Drexel's getting 9. If I were a betting man... (their coach also might've played college hoops w our AD. I'm curious whether he would've been in contention when we were last hiring.).

Re: KAEO: Preston Santos

Hugely disappointing. Preston was one of my favorite players to watch evolve and step up last year. Everything's f'd in 2020. I hope Preston addresses whatever's going on in a productive, positive way and we see him back soon.

Looks like Alexis Reyes committed to ECU - https://twitter.com/MikeYagmin/status/1 ... 6172576769

Really curious who UMass is prioritizing for remaining scholarships

Re: 2020-21 Season

As for the waivers, I checked on other Wichita St. transfers, Jamarius Burton and Erik Stevenson, and it doesn't look like either of them have received a waiver. Stevenson is in a similar situation to Noah, where he transferred back to his home state of Washington. I don't know if any of the Wichita...

Re: 2020 A10 Offseason News

I'm infuriated. How does URI get all these guys cleared, seemingly with different circumstances, but we can't get one who returned to his home state during a pandemic?

What is UMass doing wrong?

Re: 2020 A10 Offseason News

Ya, SLU doesn't scare me. They'll be good, but they don't scare me. We shit the bed against teams with more complex offenses last year - Davidson, Richmond, GW, SBU... Coach B mentioned something about this is an interview I heard a few months ago. When asked how he'd plan to defend these offenses, ...

Re: Duke

It's like Coach Cal saw it coming! In USA Today, on Zion and Tyler Herro's recruitment: “When you’re doing what I do and as hard as this is here and as much as you have to do in a short period of time, you don’t have a whole lot of time for B.S.,” Calipari said. “You just don’t. You have to keep it ...

Re: 2020-21 Season

So if the NCAA transfer waiver fails, is Garcia the starting PG? Does Buggs have enough to unseat Kolton as prime backup? Does Carl continue to start? Will Weeks return to form? Is Preston "the man" at the three? Who rises to the top at the four? Will Tre go for 20/20 some night? This sho...

Re: 2020-21 Season

I agree about Baptiste and Gasperini. Djery's offense was picking up as the season wore on, and he could rebound and defend. I think Mark will be serviceable, and Tony will work with him on what's needed from him. I disagree Noah might be a disappointment or underwhelming. He has the intangibles. He...

Re: 2020-21 Season

Tre's staying for 3 years. He'll then assess options. They've already said this. The staff's prioritizing a 4/5 for the 2021 class

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Niles, hearing anything new on DeGray's recruitment? You called Gasperini on the none. Anything on Frederick Scott? I like his game and , if DeGray doesn't pan out, he's a good option. To answer your question, they are actively recruiting Degray and will probably get him. I'm a little surprised. If...

Re: 2020 Recruiting

Sounds really solid. Welcome aboard, Mark!

It would be ideal if we could sign Richards to wrap up this class. Keeping it moving in the right direction..
