I wished the article had addressed the possibility of a Spring Basketball season, the possibility of no Basketball season until Fall 2021 resulting in the potential return of any current seniors either as undergrads or grad students, and how schollies & recruiting would be handled in that eventuality.
Nobody knows what’s going to happen, Bill. MI is preparing as there will be a season and will adjust accordingly should any of the above happen.

Asking questions that there are clearly no answers for at this time is a colossal waste of KTs and MIs time and a insult to there intelligence.

As the first troops were landing on Omaha Beach was the pertinent question how are we going to take Berlin? Spoiler alert; it was not.

The article did speculate, "There will be four seniors on the Blue Hens’ 2020-21 team, provided that season actually takes place amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The Colonial Athletic Association has not announced any modifications yet to winter sports." It is not too far of a reach to mention the possibility of Spring Basketball and how the speculated "no season" could impact the seniors and the number of incoming recruits for the 2021-2022 season. Finally, please don't equate war and college sports.

Yeah, My expressing a wish that a couple of elephants in the room had been discussed is like "finger nails on the blackboard" but another poster equating sports with warfare doesn't get a rise from anyone but me. My post was clearly more offensive. :roll:

We all hope we play a full season of basketball and we can all be in DC on March 9th watching the Hens playing for a conference championship and a ticket to the dance. The facts of life as they exist today are we don't know what the virus landscape looks like in September, let-alone November through March.

When they know, we will know. But, but, but how will we take Berlin!

We are assuming that the spring will bring either a vaccine or some more successful model for conducting a sports season.

Found a couple other '21s the coaching staff follows, both in the Baltimore area:
- Jared Billups (McDonogh) 6'4" SG
Offers: Loyola, Bryant, Mount St. Mary's, UMass Lowell, Bucknell, Brown
- D'Angelo Stines (Mount St. Joe's) 6'2" PG
Offers: Howard, Mount St. Mary's, Quinnipiac

Doesn't mean too much, just worth bookmarking
No offers yet, but some confirmed interest in Stines. Our staff likes to work in person, that’s for sure.

Stines to ODU

First offers have been made.

Sean Durugordon 6’7 Wing, 4 star out of Queens, NY. Not sure we have a shot with these offers. Though also not sure why we’d offer this late if we didn’t feel like we had somewhat of a chance, or in hopes that if things don’t work out he transfers.

http://verbalcommits.com/players/sean-durugordon

Nick Marshall 6’4 SG from Maryland.

Offers: Penn, UNCW, Dartmouth, Lehigh, Rice, Fairfield, Howard

http://verbalcommits.com/players/nick-marshall-md


Jaylen Stinson 6’0 PG from Archbishop Wood.

Offers from: Drexel, JMU, Southern Illinois, Hofstra, Robert Morris, Del State, Rider, St Peters, Iona, Stony Brook, Binghamton, Siena, Mississippi Valley St.

The Durugordon offer seems to be a reach on the surface but at this point, with him having so many other higher offers, there must be something there for the staff to offer.

The other 2 guys I don't see a school listed that concerns me...doesn't mean we land any of them but with Allen and Anderson graduating plus Darling gone, PT is up for grabs

Which of those offered Guards would be considered combo guards that could play the PG (1) and the SG (2)? Why 2 SG's offered, but onIy 1 PG? If Stinson is the only prospect who could play PG (and maybe the only PG who would be on the team after Allen & Anderson are gone?), shouldn't UD offer 1 or 2 more at the 1 in the event that Stinson goes elsewhere?

I am assuming that Durugordon would play the 3. Shouldn't UD offer 1 or 2 more at the 3 in the event that Durugordon goes elsewhere?

UD could lose both Ochefu (if eligible for the next season) at the 4 and Painter at the 5 after the next season. Shouldn't UD offer 1 or 2 at the 4 and/or 1 or 2 at the 5?

I like MI's approach of not offering too many and I know that the # of availalble schollies should constrain the # of schollies offered, but shoudn't UD offer 2-3 at each projected postion of need in order to not be left high and dry or forced to offer someone who isn't projected to be a significant contributor?
