Senior (5/7)

  1. From what I see he's a solid defender and rebounder/shot blocker. Transferred senior year of high school to Shadow Mountain (Arizona) coached at the time by NBA vet Mike Bibby. They played the top high school teams in the nation. If Lamin was a decent enough big man to be recruited by that program, he'll can be a solid backup at SLU.
  2. Anyone who is a 6-5 junior point guard averaging nearly 6 assists a game is worth a look. Stat sheet stuffer who can play PG, SG and wing, mega versatility there.
  3. "Kramer the Gamer!" Certified Baller!!!
  4. Somebody grab the briefcase—STAT!
  5. Interesting timing, seeing how Verge entered the transfer portal just a few days ago. Hope this means SLU is on the verge of Verge & time to play the Pit Bull.
  6. Verge averaged 14 points and about 4 rebounds and 4 assists in a better conference than the A10. What’s not to like?
  7. "Jacobs did not become our best player/scorer." OK, that may be true, but where's the logic in using that yardstick when every player but one will fail? Jacobs succeeded in his sixth man role; he came off the bench and turned the tide of games more than once. This board was praising him. He was never the same after the prolonged COVID break, and neither was the team. The fact the NCAA is granting eligibility for another season underscores how whacked everything was. Jacobs was WAY better pre-COVID this season compared to his turnover-prone initial season. Surely that took drive, motivation and a work ethic. Kudos to everyone wishing him well, agree he was great for the program and fun to watch.
  8. I like Cook's experience and scoring, but no way would he unseat Yuri as the starting point guard. Ford would be a nutcase to sit Collins (6 assists/2 turnovers as a soph) in favor of Cook (2 or 3 assists/2 turnovers). If he comes to SLU it means getting minutes at multiple positions, and both Cook and Nesbitt are good insurance for sliding over to play the point behind Collins.
  9. Memphis: Not many transfers away from SLU, stability says something about the program. Cook: The Gonzaga coverage says he's looking at playing pro overseas. Similar decision Perkins faced. 50/50!
  10. Nesbitt averaged 4 assists at St. Louis Christian--unselfish distributor.
  11. TheOne rules but Coach314 announced Perkins well before SLU did, never forgot those smoke signals!
  12. For this board "Happy Friday" from Coach 314 is like when smoke emanates from the roof of the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
  13. Nesbitt can play and has played positions 1-4 so he can slide over when Yuri sits. Ford will use every opportunity to keep him on the floor like he did with JGood. I don't think Russell transferring is coincidental.
  14. Ford has been cursed. Situations, big men turnover in Santos and Gordon, then two seasons dashed due to COVID. Hope springs eternal with Ford's level of recruiting. Not buying into the hype is akin to no joy in life for us MBMs.
  15. I like that lineup, too, and it should stomp mid-majors like A10 teams. SLU was a little undersized, but normally that wasn't a factor due to so much athleticism and rebounding. We saw in the loss to St. Bonaventure, however, that size could become a factor due to all the swats. On paper, FT and 3-PT shooting should become stronger. Question marks: team D....plus team leadership/chemistry due to JGood leaving. Hope to be pleasantly surprised, plus it's good SLU is in a position to reload (and possibly improve) rather than rebuild.
