Re: 2021 Recruiting

Both CJ Kelly and Steadman sat a year after transferring previously, so they're allowed to take advantage of the new rule. How do you figure? It's a one-time transfer exception. I think grad transfers are immediately eligible, as they have been before. That might include Steadman and Rich Kelly. No...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Just saw that the NCAA has put out guidance on the one-time transfer rule for this year; it states that anyone that had previously transferred will still need to sit out a year. This appears to include grad transfers. Ya, that's interesting; hadn't really thought about it. The waiver process is sti...

Re: KAEO: Ronnie DeGray III

If the rest of the team sticks around, I will be pleased and satisfied with McCall. Tre and Ronnie were two guys who didn't really want to be here and now they're not. If the transfers buy in, we could be pretty tough. Yep, if this is it for defections, and I hope it is, I'll be pleasantly surprise...

Re: KAEO: Ronnie DeGray III

DeGray shot 37% from 3 on almost 2 attempts/game. That's excellent for a freshman 4 in the A10, or really any conference. I do agree about the deficiency in interior defense. He only made 10 3's all season, and he was 33% in A10 conference play. He only ever took them when there wasn't a defender w...

Re: KAEO: Ronnie DeGray III

DeGray, while talented, wasn't a particularly good fit. He's effective from 15ft and in, but he's not really much of a deep threat. His rebounding is mediocre at best, but the biggest problem is, like you said, his defense. DeGray shot 37% from 3 on almost 2 attempts/game. That's excellent for a fr...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

He'll want to play more 4, and we'll use him there, but Buttrick played 5 in the Big Ten. I think he'll manage just fine in the A10. Again, the issue is foul trouble. Maybe not an issue for some. The big thing for me is whether this team will play hard and play together for every possession of every...

Re: 2021-2022 Season

We'll certainly try to speed things up, I think, but if a team is going to try and Daddy Ball us, I suppose we could have DeGray, Buttrick, and Steadman in at at the same time, and still have some offensive spacing. Foul trouble is the big concern, but I guess not as much of a concern for some. We h...

Re: Is MM a winner?

I don't think anyone would be too upset about (seemingly) screwing over a kid who wanted to come to the school because he wasn't going to be good enough, if the team actually won. Like some of the other guys said, what is bothersome is MM saying he wants kids that play for the name on the front of ...

Re: Is MM a winner?

Not a huge fan of the yearly drama and turnover this program has seen for a few years now. Rather build a program where kids stay/play together and develop together. Not a lot of consistency with all the transfers and its going to hurt the program in the long run https://twitter.com/CBB_Central/sta...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Part of the issue is the double-talk. "We opted for a quick fix and brought in transfers. It didn't work. We're going to build a program with guys who want to be here, create the right kind of culture, etc." Ok. The Administration talks about wanting continuity, which, I guess, pertains on...

Re: KAEO: Tre Mitchell

Chatter on twitter is UNC or Illinois. Doubt TB would join either payroll. It's been quiet w him, though. Doubt he returns, but anything can happen, I guess.

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Dropping a kid who looks to be a defender and rebounder and wants to be here for another transfer who wants to jack shots and "just hoop..."? Yup, sounds like McCall. I really want to be optimistic, but viewing McCall over the years is like watching a series of bad decisions unfold. I feel...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Ya, McCall seems to like guys who like to shoot. Hopefully the new guys like to do the things necessary to win games, as well. OFFSeason, the reference to the one year job doesn't sound optimistic. Do you think this could be a bubble team? If so, I'm curious whether McCall would be extended two year...

Re: 2021 Recruiting

Saw on Twitter that Rich Kelly from BC/Quinnipiac could be on the way to Amherst. Nice! With no clear focal point on offense, the ball should be zipping around, with lots of player movement. Looks to be a fun squad. Edit: The guy on twitter is saying (unofficially) CJ Kelly is still heading this wa...
