  1. She's super impressive, and so is the team. Definitely check this interview out.
  2. Names of SLU interest in the portal, updated. Current school in parentheses, followed by next year's class status and expected remaining eligibility, including COVID bonus year. D.J. Horne (Illinois State) is going to Arizona State and Mason Madsen is staying at Cincinnati. They have been removed from the list. Had an offer from SLU at some point: -John Bol Ajak (Syracuse) - Freshman, 4 Years -Madut Akec (South Florida) - Junior, 3 Years -Myles Baker (Central Connecticut State) - Junior, 3 Years -Dudley Blackwell (Iowa State) - Sophomore, 4 Years -Kevin Easley (TCU) - Junio
  3. Foster Loyer is in the portal, leaving Michigan State. Had a SLU offer at one point. Has played three seasons, should have two left. Not sure he fills a need but he's a familiar name.
  4. The draws the past two years have been rough, but I feel like SLU was given some respect this time. I don't mind the draw at all. UNC is obviously tough, especially with the tournament taking place in their home state, but the 15-seed overall is a nice achievement in and of itself. One win puts SLU in the third round, which would officially be the deepest the program will have ever made it in the NCAAT. Full bracket.
  5. You're not missing anything. He's on the radar of or in contact with dozens of D-I programs. Schools are just not prioritizing JUCOs this year the way they are other D-I transfers - same reason the HS class of 2021 is going way underrecruited. Unfortunate timing for anyone trying to get in D-I for the first time. So there's a lot of monitoring of these players, but the offers are slow. I've noticed that the portal news in the past 5 or so days is really starting to shift toward commitments and new entrants have slowed to a trickle, so the offers may start to come in for guys like Leons ve
  6. D.J. Horne (Illinois State, SLU offer out of HS) chose Arizona State.
  7. That's basically an impossible thing to search, at least to me. I try to keep track of local/regional names to the best of my ability but it's all a manual process that relies on my imperfect memory. There are plenty of STL/MO/downstate IL kids playing D-I who never really hit our radar in a big way, who go out of town for school, and who may or may not transfer at some point. I try to point them out when I can, although some are never really of interest. If there's anyone of Nesbitt's caliber from the region on the board, he will not go unnoticed.
  8. I'd heard that Madsen really liked Wes Miller, the new coach at UC, and is thinking abouts taying now. If this guy is to be believed, Butler may be moving up and SLU down.
  9. Jamal Mashburn, Jr. followed Richard Pitino to New Mexico, as had been rumored.
  10. Names of SLU interest in the portal, updated. Current school in parentheses, followed by next year's class status and expected remaining eligibility, including COVID bonus year. Deivon Smith (Mississippi State) to Georgia Tech, Torrence Watson (Mizzou) to Elon, Woody Newton (Syracuse) to Oklahoma State, and Jamal Mashburn, Jr. (Minnesota) to New Mexico. They have been removed from the list. Had an offer from SLU at some point: -John Bol Ajak (Syracuse) - Freshman, 4 Years -Madut Akec (South Florida) - Junior, 3 Years -Myles Baker (Central Connecticut State) - Junior, 3 Years
  11. Okay, now the Artest son SLU briefly showed interest in is recruiting - Jeron Artest is leaving UC-Irvine, not to be confused (again, by me) with Ron Artest III, who left CSU-Northridge. Deivon Smith (had a SLU offer) left Mississippi State and is going to Georgia Tech. Aundre Hyatt is leaving LSU. Got a SLU offer in Ford's early days in spring 2016.
  12. Fordham with an own goal! 1-0 SLU. Buendia whipped one into the box and just a brutal strike by the Fordham defender.
  13. There's definitely some aspects of their team game that can be polished, but I have to think they're going to get sharper over time. Bri Halverson is really the only major player who graduates this year - the other three seniors come off the bench and don't play major minutes - and she plans on returning with her COVID bonus year. So they lose literally no one, unless someone transfers out.
