  1. He’s on an unofficial visit to Va Tech today. Gonna be a long line for him.
  2. He was in Virginia along with tons of other coaches at a top 150 type event. I read a tweet that said Key was a late bloomer. I suspect tons of schools are gonna jump in on him now.
  3. RJ Barrett. Brandon Clarke. Lougie Dortz. All potential first rounders this year from Canada. There’s basketball being played at a high level in the north. We need to capitalize on it.
  4. Strongly agree. Just imagine John down low and Skogman being a stretch 4. Or Mballa running pick and roll with Segu. Endless possibilities. With our strong wing players on the perimeter and wider lanes now bc of the extented 3pt line. Exciting.
  5. We don’t need every big man to shoot 3s. His twitter profile says true big man. I would expect him to be a force down low. Which could work well freeing up guys on the perimeter. Seems to me to be a true 5.
  6. 6’8 with a 7’3 wingspan. Crazy athletic. Yes a project but we potentially have him for up to 4 years of development. The upside is there. At worst he becomes a more athletic version of Ikenna Smart. Let’s say he becomes a rim protector who averages 2 blocks a game and deters teams from driving to the basket...that’s game changing. I’m not expecting double doubles from him nightly. However I’m excited at the thought that he could be the athletic lengthy big we need who plays down low and does the gritty things like rebound, block shots and defend. Works well in pick and roll on offense. If Chris Beard saw something in him that’s good enough for me. And we know firsthand how grind you out that Tech team was.
  7. He committed to Tennessee Tech today. https://twitter.com/VerbalCommits/status/1137848732186226694?s=20
  8. That’s fine. We don’t need every big man to be a 3 point shooter. With an expanded lane now since the 3pt line has been moved we can use more pick and roll. And action towards the basket. Every team needs interior grunt workers.
  9. I love it. Sometimes on this forum names get carelessly thrown out there but I’m glad this one became fact.
  10. Game changer! This should no doubt keep things status quo here. Is he eligible right away?
  11. F yea!!! Some height and length. A guy who was around a national championship caliber team. I’ll take it.
  12. I’m like a kid on Christmas morning!!!
  13. Maybe someone around the team can confirm but I think in practice they tape an extended 3pt line around the arc. Therefore leading one to believe that we’ve practice taking shots at this distance as standard operating procedure.
  14. I live in NYC and can tell you no one gives a hoot about Rutgers basketball. No one. The UB Harvard game is the 2nd most intriguing matchup on the slate.
  15. Keep this real simple...Harvard is better than Rutgers. Therefore I rather play Harvard on the neutral floor. And if anyone has sour grapes about it not being a home game then get your butt to Toronto. Only a 2-3 hour drive. This should be a defacto home game. We should as a student body, fan base and administration do all we can to get there.
  16. Not reconsidering anything. Our staff has done a great job retaining rostered players and bringing 3 players that can contribute right away. I like how our staff was rounded out. We are in great shape. Was just simple saying that we can compare both these coaches tenures to one another directly. Bc we interviewed him and passed on him. And since he took of Georgia state he has brought in two players that had scholarship offers from us. The parallels are there. Will be interesting going forward to compare and see who was the better hire.
  17. I think recruits are a little skeptical of Whitesell. Maybe they don’t think we will be as offensively dominant as we were under Oats. And that potentially is shying kids away right now. Oats just signed Quinerley from Nova. And the kid praised Oats and his style. I think we need to get out there and show that we aren’t going to revert back to slow ball on offense. Then recruits will be open to coming her again. Idk just a thought.
  18. Makes you wonder had we hired Lanier huh. He’s done a solid job recruiting since taking over there. Gotta admit since we rounded out our staff, especially with the hire of the JUCO coach, I’m a little disappointed there’s no activity. I’m not just talking about with the two scholarships we have left. I’m talking about jumping on kids in next years class and beyond. But I’m overall happy.
  19. I wanna win the MAC and make the big dance every year by any means.
  20. This makes an already dangerous team more lethal. 4 star rated 6’11 big. Irks me.
  21. It strikes me that CJ has so much to give beyond playing basketball. Like I can see him playing for 5 years or so, where ever his on the court career takes him. But I can see him possibly transitioning into the front office or coaching or something where we see the human side of CJ that we’ve come to know over the last 4 years. Either way wish him the best. He will be a great representative for both UB athletics and academics.
  22. Lol. I’ll believe it when I see it then.
