Re: Non Conference Schedule Released!

Update on UNCA. They have announced they are playing in a 4 team tourney with NKU, Coastal Carolina, and Manhattan at NKU on Nov. 16-18, so it appears that we'll not have them hare as part of the Maui Mainland. So, unless I've missed something, who will be the other 2 teams for our 4-team as part of...

Re: Marty Simmons hired by Clemson

Article in Greenville News this am says, "Simmons Apparently Hired as Clemson bball asst.". Brownell quoted that he cannot confirm because the "process is not complete." I don't doubt that Marty will go to Clemson, but he's in a lesser role there that doesn't include the authorit...

Re: Depth chart

The coaches will sort it all out, but Tom is pretty much 100%. Unless we get a late transfer, ALL of these kids will get playing time. I'd be surprised if Givance redshirts. Agree that PG could be a tough fill. Riley didn't seem to be totally comfortable there last season, although I'll respect othe...

Re: Recruiting

Agree with ace card. We are under promising, but I think we'll be an overachiever in the MVC. I have tremendous respect for the SIX who decided to return. The 5 recruits are high quality kids who have a lot of grit, talent, and heart. I wish we had just one more kid, but only because injuries are a ...

Re: Recruiting

Tenn Tech is a head scratcher. Of course, any offer Walter might have made could have been conditional, so You can't question Troy considering his options. Still, TTech is not WKU or MTSU. It's a good sign that we can get Becker vs. Wisconsin, Newton vs. UTEP, and getting DeAndre, who could have gon...

Re: Recruiting

I hope he brings his talent to UE. He seems to be a class act and if you look at his body of work at USF, he can play! Troy has also fought thru a lot, so he'll bring some grit and attitude to the table. With the final decision by Hurley, maybe Troy sees a clear path to a leadership role as part of ...

Re: When will MVC expand?

MSU would add strength to the MVC, but look at it from the Racers' perspective. They have been to either the NIT or NCAA 5 of the past 9 years, and 14 of the last 25. Could they fare that well in the MVC? probably not. As stated previously, NKU and Belmont may be better fits. Belmont is similar to U...

Re: Non Conference Schedule Released!

I've heard UNC-Asheville, but no confirm yet from them, or Auburn or Duke, who were supposed to be their Mainland opponents. Hopefully, the Mainland 4 team tourney won't end up like last year's which was held at Wofford to showcase their new arena. It ended up a hodgepodge of D2 and D1 teams, taking...

Re: Recruiting

UE falls in a category that recruiters call "non-Ivy League academic." This first recruiting year is certainly a learning experience for the staff. We'll have limitations on which kids we can recruit, like Belmont and Butler, not like ISUR, ISUB, EKU, Murray St., etc., who might have lower...

Re: Recruiting

Wish Rosel all the best. Hopefully, Walter has a prospect or two sitting in the wings. It's late, yes, but other schools are still signing transfers, getting jucos to go D1, rather than play their second year at CC, and getting an occasional 2018 prospect. Didn't KJ forgo his 2nd yr. of JUCO to join...
