Ok, so I'll discuss next season then...


I think we rebound nicely from this. The recruiting is still strong and the young kids this year played a lot and showed a lot. I think they will take a big step forward next year. I think the team can get back to the top of Hockey East again.


EDIT: DAMN IT TB, you deleted your post! :lol:

Thought it was the Women’s BB for ‘23-‘24, where it would have made sense😁

Off topic a tad, but Robert Morris is using the portal to recruit an entire new team. :)

Lebster and Keifuk are also in the portal, I think Carvel nudges them out of the nest after their senior year.

I have a feeling that Carvel was instrumental in helping them "decide" to enter the portal.

All were major contributors, plus size and really stretches the UM recruiting reach, Colorado,Massachusetts, Finland. Appreciate the news! Where do these names come from? Would like to keep up on the recruiting and this is the first I’ve seen these. I know the incoming Freshman class is in flux until basically September. Thanks!

^^ This is where I go for transfer info. There are other sites as well but this one seems pretty accurate. You can sort any of the columns.

Some good news and another guy enters the portal. Mixed bag.

@FightMA247
UMass freshman d-man Noah Ellis, a Vegas draft pick, has entered the Portal after his first season in Amherst
As a draftee you'd have expected a bit more from Ellis this season but he battled injuries and inconsistency. Probably needs a fresh start
