Class of 2023 recruiting! Don't know if he can play, but I'm liking his name:

Team Thrill @TeamThrillUAA ·1h
Congratulations to freshman Mike Williams on his offer from UMASS

I see 32-86 for a .372 average 3pt FG %
You are correct ...... Weird thing is I found my stats from the Wiki home page. I went to players and they only listed 3 years of his stats..... I could not remember of he played 3 or 4 years. Obviously it was 4 and that page did not list his senior season (for stats at least)

He still took way too many 3's and gathered way too few rebounds for a "4"............. that point still stands.
In Matt McCall I trust!

How about Scott Drapeau
The one who played 5 games at UMass and 9.8 minutes a game? You have a great eye and a great memory!!

He was pretty good in that first game, though... He had Harper and Kennard ahead of him. Gasperini is way better than Scott D. but he was fun. Gasperini will be better than Kennard Robinson, too. I don't know who to compare him to. HS film looks good but, you know, highlights always do.

From my collection, probably my favorite:

Some video of Gasperini

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAjSC2ttLNE
Looks pretty fluid with a nice shot. Good size
Should be a nice complimentary player up front. The experience will help too

^ Keep in mind that this video is from 2016 when he was a senior in high school. I'll look for anything I can find from the last year or 2 at American.

Seems to have pretty good hands too, for a 5 from that conference. Some offensive skills.

My concern for next year is defense up front. I know little about Gasperini.

Looking forward to seeing how DeGray responds to the off season weight lifting regiment at UMass. He developed quite well the past 2 years. Starting to look more like an adult than an average freshman. A good sign.

Are we done with roster moves? I would think but surprises happen.

Gonna disagree with you here, Julius. I was a freshman when Drapeau was a freshman and thought he showed some potential in those few minutes he got before leaving and then he went on to have a really good career at UNH. I haven’t seen much of Gasperini but I doubt he is as good as Drapeau turned out to be.

I don't remember him at UNH. I will defer to you on this but I did like Scott, dont follow UNH.

I think Gasparini could be a huge bonus if he works hard. He is a man and has experience. Hands look great. Bigger guys frequently develop later. Love this addition! I could imagine him as a 5 and 5 guy in ten minutes PT which would really help us!!
