  1. Rules are made to be broken. Especially when basketball news is winding down until the late Summer AAU/recruiting period. I say, break the unwritten so-called rule. LOL.
  2. The way he cut through the competition wonder the level of competition in Maine. Not exactly a basketball hotbed. And NO STARS! Cant't be too good.
  3. Obviously Ford has pretty strong interest since Mack is visiting next week. If he was "poison", he would not be getting the invite.
  4. You know nothing of what happened at TX. Perhaps some immaturity issues now passed. I will trust someone in the know, Ford, on this one. If the kid has NBA/professional ambitions it would behoove him to stay clean, be a team guy, and have a successful last year.
  5. https://www.thestate.com/sports/high-school/prep-basketball/article231246253.html Article on his travels, etc. Says he is a silky smooth shooter and just got his degree. I say SLU could use him and if family wants to see him play SLU would be a good choice.
  6. I think it helps defensive teams and of course the inside and mid-range offensive game. Both a plus for SLU .......
  7. Or maybe the NCAA said he must sit out the first semester since he played the first semester last year and Lewis said screw that. Maybe that made it not worth it for him.
  8. Well, not really. NIT pays squat. The only tourney that matters is the one that pays, the NCAA.
  9. Love Collins' potential and press clippings but Jacobs was just as hyped coming in last year. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on Jacobs to get more minutes than Collins next year based on one factor ..... he has a year in the SLU system. Most freshmen take awhile to get acclimated to the college game. And also, I have a feeling Jacobs is driven by last year's injury misfortunes.
  10. Well, and coverage after Summer AAU is just about zip except probably for the few loaded national hs squads. Hargrove switched AAU squads and played limited minutes last Summer. Collins was recoverying from surgery and before that was playing limited due to the injury. Then they busted out after AAU, and Collins after his recovery. Both would seem to be under-ranked. And Hargrove, has even been given a 4 star ranking by some services after wowing his senior year. So SLU's class, I 'd say it is top 50 considering the above plus Jimerson's breakout season; and the 2 bigs are not even factored in on 247. Perkins and Lewis, gravy on top of all that. Very good class.
  11. I think this sophomore tape, before injury, shows more athleticism. Hopefully he gets back to that and better, given 2 years older and more experienced. considering he is 2years older/more mature and experienced.
  12. That would be great. Way too many 3 point attempts per game at the expense of the mid-range and inside game. Just my opinion.
  13. Agree on Rogers. Was a frosh his last year, what a player!
