That is great news! This kid is a true power forward with hops, shot blocking ability, and likes to play above the rim. He will be a great complement to John Hall. I still see the need for a center, especially after next season when Dainius is gone. I hope they can bring Silva on board to fill that gap.

I am not so sure as before that Silva is out. If he still wants to come here I doubt Walter would refuse. They still another guard I hope it will shea unless an over the top recruit is available.

He has wanted to come here for the last 10 days, the ball was in our court, so I don't know, i don't know.

Becker is 6'8" 200 lbs. Silva is 7'1" 250 lbs. The old regime they may have played the same position, but I hope that isn't the case with the new. I see now reason they both couldn't be on the floor together.

Hey all. Listen. Did anyone else just hear the rest of the MVC say “Oh s***. These guys are serious now.”?

I always felt like we blew a big opportunity with Sawvell, although I didn't know the particular circumstances of the situation. Becker reminds me of him. Also reminds me of Nunge from Castle who will be a sophomore at Iowa. Looks a like a great addition to me.

Will has unique traits for a guy who's 6'8. He can play above the rim like a wing, and has a good knack to block shots. Looks to be a great pickup and his athleticism will allow him to play a small ball 5 if we need it. Definitely needs to hit the weights though, but I'm sure he knows that. Welcome Will!

All the coaches are already in meetings now trying to design offenses and defenses to use against Evansville. The old playbook used for the last 11 years just went out the window.
