makes me wonder how hard Carr is hitting the weights. He needs to devour tons of ANYTHING-though hopefully protein enhanced- to add to the his skinny frame. He also needs to be working on his quickness which hampered his production last season. I believe he found out that college ball-even CAA- is quite different from hs. I still expect big things from Andrew(AC) down the road and hope he takes the free year of eligibility to play longer for us. We need a major upgrade in quality opponents to recruit and retain our top notch kids. So far no 2021-22 schedule though I'm sure MI is working on it with the AD staff. I would love to see more positive stuff on our bball program so enhance our profile and move season ticket sale.
Keep the faith kick butt go Hens

I’m not worried about Carr. How many freshman big men at the mid major level come in and avg 8-9 pts/game first year? The fact his dad and uncle played here and he wants to be a physical therapist tells me we don’t need to worry about a transfer because IMO he will be coveted by the big boys at some point.

We lose Painter and Ochefu next year...absolutely need another big man. I think that big will come from the transfer portal but can’t hurt to get young talent as well.

MI usually doesn’t offer a kid unless he thinks we have a real good shot at getting him. Doesn’t just throws offers out like Towson. Really like these first two kids we’ve offered as well as the guys we’ve had in for visits.

Jett Roesing, a 6’4 guard from Duquesne committed to Rider. We had contacted him after he transferred. With 14 players, I didn’t think we were 100% on him…maybe if someone left the team this past month but nobody did. Surprised he ended up at Rider.
