pretty sure Kante and Martin are the only one's who cannot return...not positive on Levesque but would think he falls into the Covid category and can get that 5th year back if he chooses to.

^ Correct. Only Kante and Martin have used up their eligibility. Everyone else has at least 1 year left if they choose to use it. This is my best guess at how many years each player has left after this year:

1 year:
Noah
Leveque

2 years:
Cross
Weeks
DD
Diggins
Gianni

Everyone else has 3.

If TJ stays for his full eligibility, he will have been here 6 years. By then he'll have a PhD, or get paid as an Asst Coach.

If TJ stays for 6 years he'll be Dr. Weeks by his 6th year.

Noah revealed that his girlfriend's (?) due date is 2/24.

If someone has to be "that guy" who hears that and then checks the game schedule, I guess I'll start :D
2/22 at home for Dayton
mini-bye
3/1 at Duquesne

So 2/24 would actually be as good a day as we're gonna get at this point in the season. Stay on time Baby Noah! :D

Noah was asked about chasing a championship, and he said "Got this year and maybe next year." So it seems he's at least considering using the bonus year and going one more in college.

I hope he does come back. Injuries have kind of messed up this year for him, a full, healthy year would be good for him, and us :D

^ Not just this year, but it seems like he's had something every year.

- Freshman year at Wichita, I believe he had something that kept him out for long stretches, maybe an ankle
- Sophomore year, first year here was the shortened Covid year, only played 11 of 15 games
- Junior year, last year, remember he collided with Trent Buttrick during a game and went into concussion protocol for a while and missed 4 games
- Senior, this year, missed a ton of games so far. It doesn't sound to me like he's babying it and being overly cautious. The report of swelling from the plane ride down to George Mason indicates that there's still something going on with his ankle.

Rahsool has stepped up in his absence, and Keon to a lesser extent seems at the very least capable. I hope he takes his time and is 100% for the tournament.

Great interview with Noah. All UMass fans, find a moment in your day/evening to check this out, or listen on your drive to the Mullins Center tomorrow. Noah is outstanding. I can't wait to see him back out there, and hopefully back here next year.

Glad you enjoyed! Nathan Strauss did a great job conducting the interview and the open question session.

We have live interviews with Sam Breen, Dyondre, RJ and a recorded interview with Tafara coming up. We are going to be conducting these on Spaces for the engagement of folks, but will also be posting them in Podcast format so those without Twitter can access them as well.
