  1. No mention on this board... Can Holley play in the MAC? https://twitter.com/EricHolleyIII1/status/1395126573683126279?s=09
  2. Newest upgrade to come to "The Coop" and Duquie Land: KD becomes first coach to hire The Personal Brand Coach. Gonna make kids rich by exploiting social media. Name, image and likeness profiting. With this the NCAA has thrown in the towel on trying to control boosters and will now introduce a bigger, better brand of exploitation. https://theundefeated.com/features/duquesne-empowers-athletes-by-hiring-personal-brand-coach/
  3. Thanks, somehow I missed that! She played at Gilmour Academy with Naz Hilmon, B1G POY at Michigan. https://gozips.com/news/2021/2/5/akron-womens-basketball-announces-signing-of-corcoran.aspx
  4. Zakia Rasheed, the 5-8 guard from Avon, IN (Indy) appears to be the star of the class. She's got LONG range shooting ability, has quicks, a defensive ball-hawk. 4.0 student.

  5. Update: Akron still has more NCAA championships than Gonzaga U. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  6. Long as we're doing admissions, I was wrong too.. Bonnies never made the top-25. Neither did anyone else from the A10. Despite Dayton's great but sadly interrupted campaign in 2019-20, the league has taken a downturn from the days when it could get 3 or 4 teams in the dance. MAC can compete with them.
  7. It will be Nuga's 6th season and third stop in 21-22. He made great progress from being a fairly average Big Sky guard at Portland State with reasonable 3-point accuracy to the #2 scorer on a decent PCCC club. That said, there's little to no chance he will contribute much at any high major. I saw his PSU team a few times, he played alongside Holland Woods who transferred to play for Bobby Hurley this season at AZ State and he had a rough time, only getting in double figures six times after averaging 17 and 6 assists in PDX. Nuga averaged 11 ppg as a junior at PSU. El-Amin (who's played only four years, but I guess will get just one more Covid season) will get looks from high majors, has a good ability to get his shot off but isn't in the skill category to lead a ranked-level ball club IMHO, only averages 2 assts/gm. He might make a team like Northwestern or Nebraska better. I hope they both prove me wrong and become high major stars... πŸ˜‰
  8. He's ONLY 100% committed. Not sure he's our type of recruit in that case!!
  9. Adante Holiman, McAlester, OK. 5-9 PG. Next LCJ? https://247sports.com/player/adante-holiman-46099972/
  10. Te Holiman, '22, ESPN #1 in Oklahoma has Akron in his final 7 -- along with Zona, Bobby Hurley, St Louis... To make announcement Tuesday. https://twitter.com/TeHoliman/status/1359586188248698881?s=09
  11. I don't know how you can consider Taylor Currie a "presumed non-returner" based on what we saw this year. We DIDN'T see him this year -- and no one seems to know WHY! Could coaches simply be holding him back anticipating his maturation for the future? I have no idea -- but I can't simply guess that a former high-major recruit is suddenly a bust in the MAC!
  12. Somehow, some way, we have to find a way to create turnovers, or interrupt Buffalo's offensive flow. And -- as one poster on the UB board said -- Lil Loren gotta both score AND kick to the corners to create three-point opportunities. Trimble and Jackson have BOTH gotta have scoring streaks and get us around 14/15 treys as a team. And the bench...Marshall last night. Either him or Dawson has to contribute tonight and deny Canada the second chance shot. Play as the underdog and #StealitBack. This team had it stolen from them last year. Steal it back this year in CLE. Home court!
  13. We want to be playing at 7:30 EST (2:30 in the islands) the next two games (knock on koa wood). Go get it. πŸ€πŸ†
  14. Nice, but I really want to see a Jackson-on-Jackson MACC game! Get that 13 seed, BABY!!
