Re: 1x Transfer Proposal

First proposed a year ago by the B1G and tabled at that time, a NCAA working group is currently considering a 1x / don’t have to sit transfer rule. https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2876937-ncaa-working-group-proposes-waiver-change-for-immediate-d1-transfer-eligibility If passed , the availabilit...

Re: Penn State Scrimmage

If Painter isn’t much, much, much, much, much better than Goss and doesn’t have some kind of real inside presence on offense and defense, this team will struggle. Whoever thought Goss could be a big factor inside, well .. . I question their eye sight and knowledge of the game of basketball. We’ll s...

Re: Towson

Really good win against a good Towson team. The Hens are starting to put it together. They have a big time scorer (not just shooter) in Darling, get scoring from 3 or 4 players a night, an inside presence in Painter along with playing good enough defense, rebound just enough and get just enough off ...

Re: They're Back Again - Sixers 2019-20

Hey, maybe, just maybe it's Embiid who needs to go in exchange for more puzzle pieces in this failed process. Not saying he can't mature at some point but they did play 3 weeks without him. The guy is simply an immature kid who won't, or just as likely, doesn't have it in him to rise to the occasio...

Re: Drexel

Good wire-to-wire win against a pretty good Drexel team. Balanced scoring, inside and outside game and good intensity the whole game. Need to clean up playing out of control at times. But the team is coming together and Painter is fitting in and having an impact.

Re: They're Back Again - Sixers 2019-20

Losing to a 12-36 team by double digits is not something championship caliber teams do. Bad loss. They simply aren’t HJ. They are not athletic enough nor do they shoot the three well enough. At the near 50 game mark they have the 6th best record in the the East and 10th overall. Sure, things can ch...

Re: Cubit

No one here knows anything for certain, that's the nature of message boards. Heck, we see time and time again that those supposedly on the "inside" have their "inside" information consistently refuted and proven wrong. I never once said that I had a fact, that's what you inferred. Until we see Chri...

Re: Northeastern

Finding a way to win is a good quality as in winning in a variety of ways. While the road sweep was promising, I have seen too many ups and downs, and really low downs to be convinced quite yet. The team is only 5-4 in a weak CAA right now. I am hoping for a strong second half to build on the moment...

Re: Men's CAA Half Way

With a three game winning streak, there is now some hope. It has put the Hens in the mix in the CAA where there is no dominant team and no team that is really close to as good as some of the good teams the last few years. It is wide open. I am glad the Hens are finding different ways to score, not r...

Re: Northeastern

Found another way to win against another woefully undersized team. I don’t think I have seen a CAA team start 5 players listed as guards and no one over 6’6”. And players 6’7 or greater only played a total of 20 minutes. This time the Hens matched that and went small and spread the floor to win as o...

Re: Hofstra

Very good and gutsy win. Yeah the defense was better, but make no mistake they won the game near the basket. Mutts and Painter scored 46 points and got 25 rebounds against a very, very small Hofstra team. And they won once again, when the team shot very poorly (3-20) on threes. This game is how the ...

Re: Live Construction Footage

Rome was not built in a day but it may have taken a lot less time than this construction project. After a year I would have expected more progress than seats installed and a frame of a building I really don't understand WHAT is taking so long. This is not the most complicated construction project i...

Re: Elon

Got the much needed win. Great that Cushing got the game winner and is contributing and getting some confidence back. They need another player that can contribute off the bench. With all that said, way too much trouble beating a bad Elon team that will likely win no more than 3-4 conference games. T...

Re: William & Mary

Just for clarification, Van Vleit transferred under shaver's tenure and sat out last year. He is not a Fischer recruit. I was very upset over the Shaver firing and they way it was handled. He deserved the opportunity to coach what was arguably his best team yet on paper. After he was let go we lost...

Re: Missouri State's new coach

Nice job as usual Band. And no matter the near 20 years of attacks starting on Day One from some of the old guard, there are no asterisks for that ESPN Top 150 list just like there will be none for the Hall of Fame plague. But I do agree with Henzone that KC would a the logical choice to replace a d...
