^ Holloway still needs to lose weight and get into better condition. He can't guard smaller quicker centers/forwards which is what we typically see in the A10

You wonder how much how much "worse" the season would have been if Kellogg had deal with injuries(relatively none) and Gresham getting the OK to play this year . . he really has NO excuses like other coaches have (ie: Dayton, GW and SJU) just to name a few!

I thought the same thing about Holloway, although he could just be tired because he needs to still get into better playing shape and the season wore him down. I also agree 100 percent re: Clark. Probably prefers not to transfer, but if he graduates on time, if DK stays he will definitely go. Although, he may go either way if he gets his degree.
I don't doubt if DK stays and Dante graduates he would consider leaving. On the other hand if we get a new coach, that's fundamentally the same as leaving from a basketball perspective. So in that scenario it is just a question of does he like the new coach and his expected role in the program.

Not wishing for anyone to leave, but a "goldilocks" scenario for the program might be if all main rotation players return, 1 of the deep bench guys transfers (for example Zack) but the new coach assuming he (or she) is actively recruiting guys wherever he now coaches brings an impact recruit with them.

We could have an even more competitive roster next year if that scenario played out. Imagine another Deeky caliber freshman that follows a new coach. Could happen, we don't have a clue who a new coach might be at this point and who they are talking to.

UMass finishes the regular season with an RPI of 193. Can't remember but I don't think even Lappas plumbed those depths.

Have to wonder if that loss to UMass is the only reason Dayton isn't ranked (or wasn't before the GW loss I mean)...

Some teams with a better RPI than UMass:

University of Missouri Kansas City
Houston Baptist
Fort Wayne

Teams that were nipping at UMass' heals:
BU (forgot they still had a team)
Lipscomb (Who?)

I don't care how young the team is, this is sad.

Don't know either but I'd pay to have Mike Tyson say that name over and over again.
