Re: Game Thread - New Mexico Highlands @ UE

I’m no good at doing quotes.

The Aces were wearing new uniforms. Pat Hickey tweeted a photo of KJ modeling a couple of days ago.

Dalen Traore and his fiancée were also courtside for most of the game.

Agree the new intro is good! And it’s not rap or hip hop so us older folks can relate.

Re: Lance Wilkerson's Tweet

For what it’s worth - I was told on Thursday that we have two recruits for 2019-20. Marcus Henderson and an unnamed student athlete. DeAndre (and Marty Hill’s) NCAA eligibility has been appealed to the fullest. UE is not going to announce to us that so and so has been declared ineligible “but we’re ...

Re: Will the Aces finish last?

I’ve no idea where we’ll finish. It would be nice to avoid Thursday’s play in game tho. I’ve made a lot of trips to STL that were such disappointments. <sigh> We have 9 players and 2 walk ons. I do not expect Will Becker to play any time soon, if ever for the Aces. He has ongoing knee issues, not ju...

Re: DeAndre Williams

A member of the athletic dept staff told me that DeAndre will have to sit/only have 3 years of eligibility. It was a couple of months back so I can’t remember any specifics.

Re: Show me the roster!

Introduced Logan the Director of Basketball Operations and DeAndre the new recruit. KJ was also there. Other players away from campus ...
