Word is they still may add 1-2 more. They lose Graves, Nickelberry and Gallion plus Chanse so that should leave a spot open unless Jack wasn’t on scholarship last year despite practicing with the team. 

Is Jack on scholarship? I don't know the deal with his mom being an employee if he gets a free ride either way. If I recall correctly its what Michigan was doing with juwan howards son in walking on because he gets a free education just for being an employees son

Family of employees do not get free rides. I believe they may get a small discount.

Would be nice if these guys could be led by a coach that they win BECAUSE OF, and not IN SPITE OF, as is the case with Whitesell.  

Uhhhh..... ok

The goal for the coaching staff was to address the needs of the roster in recruiting and to get this team prepared to win a MAC title next season. So far goal 1 has been addressed. Expectations are high headed into next season. If the ascension/improvement under Whitesell is any indication, at this point there’s no reason to believe Whitesell can’t lead this team a MAC title. We will see how big a loss losing Graves is. But at this point it’s fair to say we could have a better overall roster next season. 

I’ve never called for him to be fired, I’ve been critical of him but this year collectively the players and coaches seemed to figure some stuff out. And we got to the title game. Next year with an improved roster and returning what we are returning...could equal big things. Not Oats final season big, but MAC title big.

I wouldn’t say Ohio is much better than us. We blew them out, they blew us out and they beat us by 1. I think the two teams are neck and neck and the two clear favorites in the conference. With Ohio being the overall fav to run it back. Which is a position I like bc it should further fuel our team.

Ub the year they were ranked all year lost wes Clark who was the best player on the team the year before

Ub and Ohio are going to have really good basketball teams next year

We will likely lose a little in terms of PPG from our starters, maybe 2-4 points, as I expect collectively Williams, Mballa, Segu and Hardnett will score a bit more this year than last and this will offset differential between Graves / Jack scoring.    However, we should have a much deeper bench than last year especially if we are able to add Blocker and Thiam. This table highlights how the Bulls are potentially a much deeper team.

No jail time. I hate this story all around. A part of me wishes he enters the portal so that both sides can move on. Another part of me doesn’t want him back. Especially with the players we have coming back and coming in. Another part of me doesn’t want to be that school that turns their back on a kid bc of something like this. Just an awful story.

Mballa has declared for the draft, will still be able to return I believe. Will be good for him to get some advice, like Graves

Hope he comes back. Hope one day he gets drafted. A player being drafted is a major program boost. That being said I think he needs more development and I don’t think he gets drafted. Maybe second round but that means no guaranteed contract and G league life.

Yadda yadda yadda He’s just getting his name out there yadda yadda yadda. He ain’t getting drafted. Focus on the upcoming season and let’s get back to the tournament. Why do players really bother doing it.

Networking and practice are important.

Just want to let you guys know that I’m also declaring for the nba draft but at the same time retaining my eligibility for my current 9-5 job. I’m just testing the waters. Big thanks to all who helped me get to this point. Horns up.

They do it to get feedback on their game. Allows them to focus on things they need to improve on at the next level
