This is a huge class both in size and importance. Like the class it is replacing, we are getting 5 guys representing 5 different positions. Initial impressions are Hurley and staff did really well their first full year recruiting, but we will see how it pans out on the court.

Now the rumor is Ndour is transferring out of the program. If he goes, I can imagine a Niagara-like exodus to follow.

Bad for the MAC, but probably good for the Bulls.

I remember reading previously that he was a 4 star recruit when he initially committed to Seton Hall, but then there was a coaching change or something and he ended up at Marshall instead. When that happened his recruiting ranking dropped.

Doesnt VMI normally score a ton of points? It seems like they play that style every year. I didnt follow them this season but Im guessing thats more to do with it than Canisius.

Yes. They were the highest scoring team in the NCAA this season.

I wouldn't peg Bearden into a starting spot quite yet. Battle was a steal as a top 100 recruit and though he started, he basically had to since there was little talent under sanctions. His numbers were decent for a frosh, very similar to what Evans had for us. Oldham was also a solid recruit with MVC offers but he backed up a vet in Mulkey. Evans did everything needed to be the leader to PG, so I see Bearden backing him up, at least the start.

Though Skeete had a soph slump he's worked hard to improve physically, so as a jr he'll be a leader for SG, since he's not really a PG. I think Diane will be a capable bench player in stretches and Much's D will earn him minutes in a backcourt with defensive ?'s.

We'll have good forward depth so Ford could continue starting, even if he gives way to more minutes for a 3-guard offense once again. I see Regan and Hanner being starters at this point. Hanner showed great hops, energy, and skills befitting his recruiting rankings when I saw him in Bulls Madness and some practices. Moss had good per minute averages so he should improve with more minutes. Johnson is intriguing based on his JUCO numbers and could be the best rim-protector on the roster. We were spoiled with sWatt/McCrea the last feel years.

It's obviously up to a young roster to acclimate quickly, but we've seen UB teams do it before. When Pierce, Betts, Smiley, Boyer, and Max moved on from '09-'10, we continued winning with the surprising production from Filzen, Mulkey, and a frosh in McCrea.

Good points. While Bearden looks immensely talented, even McCrea came off the bench as a freshman (I know it was Reggie), and I really want Evans to get a fair crack at starting point guard since he has arguably looked better at PG than at SG this year.

I think practices from now until the start of next year will determine who starts between Moss and Hanner. I think Ford will start at SF again although won't necessarily garner tons of minutes.

As of right now, I'll say starters will be:

G- Evans
G- Skeete
F- Ford
F- Regan
F- Moss

Between Moss, Ford, and Hanner, I think it's about even odds for any two of the three to start.

I think Bearden will play a good first off the bench role, and will allow Evans to shift over to SG. While I see us starting 3 forwards, I think the majority of the time we will play with three guards on the court like this year. This could spell great things for Diane and Frasco who sound like three point sharp shooters.

UB and VT's seasons ended last week. I'll give you a week from today until I call it out as complete bullshaq.

For the ninth time, I reported that sources said  the two were in talks for the job. If I said "he will be the next head coach" you would be in your rights. I didn't. Myself and it appears the Buffalo News are simply reporting that there are reports from quality sources. If you wanna call bullshaq to the sources, knock yourself out.



Nope, that's not what you said. See below, your first post. You didn't say "will be," but rather "will become," so I suppose if you want to be as pedantic as you've already shown yourself to be this statement remains true, but you went a lot further than "the two were in talks."

Heard from two different sources that Bobby Hurley will become the head coach at Virginia Tech at seasons end.

I think you're an ass. At the same time, I don't think you should have been banned, but now you've proven yourself to be a liar who changes his position on topics to try to hold the upper ground, so I'll pay your posts the same 0 attention I give BSF.

Second, you correctly quoted me saying that "two different sources said" which clearly isn't me saying  that, its reporting that people are saying that. Big difference.  

It doesn't work that way. There is no difference between saying "two different sources said" and "I said" if you can't cite your sources.

That my friend is an absurd statement. The distinct difference is that I am saying I heard this, not saying I know this.

It's not an absurd statement to say that since you are new and lack credibility, your attribution of a rumor to two different unidentified sources to back your statement up also lacks credibility.

What an utter disappointment that was
11  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: UB vs EMU Quarterfinal Game Thursday Night at 9PM on: March 13, 2014, 11:00:15 PM
with little over 7 minutes remaining, we are down by 1. this is not good. not liking this.

I'll gladly take down 1 with 7 to play now... Down 5 with under 4 to play and EMU possession.
12  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: UB vs EMU Quarterfinal Game Thursday Night at 9PM on: March 13, 2014, 09:23:00 PM
Awful start. McCrea can't sink a basket. Hopefully they get things in order.
13  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Bobby Hurley to Va Tech? on: March 13, 2014, 05:31:59 PM
I don't doubt that Hurley would be willing to jump ship after one season with his 3 best players graduating. What I question is any major team worth it's salt sniffing around Alumni Arena after his first season, a 19-9 one at that, without a particularly difficult non conference schedule when the ball hasn't even been tipped in the conference tournament. It makes no sense.
14  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Bobby Hurley to Va Tech? on: March 13, 2014, 06:50:58 AM
flynnkat is trolling, but my bet is Hurley isn't looking to stick around too long. He's going to be Turner Gill 2.0, eye on Nebraska, picks Kansas as an intermediate stop.

Completely agree. Nothing inherently wrong with that as long as he leaves the program in a better place than it was when it was given to him.
15  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: McCrea - first team All Mac, Freelove - Honorable Mention, Evans - All-Freshman on: March 10, 2014, 04:08:50 PM
I think Oldham should have been considered as an honorable mention as well, but that list looks pretty good otherwise. Glad to see Evans recognized on the freshman team.
