  1. Thing here is, Iona (pre-Pitino at least) wasn't a promotion over Fairleigh Dickinson. Not sure how IU gets alot more $$ for coaches (rich Catholic alumni? 😁) My only past knowledge of FDU was seeing them beat Hipsher's team for 7th place in a tournament in Honolulu in 2000, and that the Adidas 3-Star camp used to be held there -- Sonny Vaccaro & Co.
  2. We will see... hopefully sooner, rather than later. 😁
  3. Yes. I have to think the list is through 2022-23, because last time I looked (earlier this season) Enrique was not listed. 👍
  4. Waiting for LeBron, in ...1...2... 🤔
  5. Freeman is already the all-time rebounding record holder?? I've been trying to find the numbers. I have doubts that he has broken the record (nearly 1300) in just 3 years. Can someone post an updated list, please?
  6. Hire her and get a famous national anthem singer in the deal? https://www.wideopencountry.com/brandon-blackstock/
  7. What's the news on Luke Skaljac of Brecksville? How was his junior season. He was maybe the first '24 player Groce offered.
  8. Mahalo ME 102. I'm impressed if only by your cut & paste skills! Not sure how you managed that without it all disappearing into thin air multiple times, as seems to happen when I compose over two paras. My best case scenario would be to get a top assistant from one of those always-ranked mid-major programs like UWGB, Missouri State, Gonzaga, etc., or a top young up-and-coming coach from that area. I did mention earlier Chelsea Lyles the Assoc HC to Karl Smesko at FGCU. She's going to be a great head coach some day and we'd might as well get her first. I expect Megan Vogel to take over for Borseth in a couple years. How about the coach at Cleveland State? She came in and moved her team way up the ranks very quickly. One hope I would have is that the new coach maintain the strategic style that Jodi Kest brought that everybody needs to be a shooter and the first player with an open 3-pointer takes it. That's the way the game has developed and how mid-majors beat P-5s.
  9. Or when Charles arrived in town! lol (but only slightly) 😒
  10. WAC regular season champs UVU starts NIT play at New Mexico tonight. Imagine if Aziz had stayed and we had a rim protector averaging nearly 3 blocks per game! https://www.abqjournal.com/2581868/nit-basketball-new-mexico-men-get-the-home-court-but-face-tall-order-in-utah-valley.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1678898424
  11. I mentioned Lanae a few weeks ago. She was probably the most heavily recruited player in the Akron area by Melissa Jackson. Signed with MTSU, played in just 6 games for nationally ranked team. She was offered by KSU and Miami from the MAC and a few mid-majors (Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, etc.). Don't know if there is any coach left behind who's recruiting. When Kest left, Jackson continued recruiting.
  12. As a tournament ticket-holder I can't disagree. And BTW, someone tell John Groce we still have one spot left for next December! 😃 https://collegehoopstoday.com/index.php/rothstein-files/field-for-2023-diamond-head-classic-nearly-set/
  13. Well, that beats any newspaper in town. 🤷‍♂️
  14. Dukes open the CBI as the 5 seed vs Rice. Looking at the bracket they should expect to make at least the semifinals! Good luck to our second favorite coach! 😊
  15. Had to review the story! Senderoff basically got what John Loyer got from Hughins at Cincinnati -- the convenient target treatment. Kelvin Sampson was the real responsible party. And...hmmm, whatever happened to him 🤔😉 https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/news/story?id=3086559
