Re: SHU Announces Television Package With SNY

Anosike transferring is a big loss for SHU. He had a 15 ppg/12rpg average. Players with those kind of numbers do not come along very often. We have seen that the graduate transfer rule is a double edged sword. Central got a pretty good QB in football last year. Anyway, there is no reason for anyone ...

Re: Next Season

Nigel Scantlebury, a great name, sounds like a character from a Dickens novel. He looks good on the highlight reel. A PG that can also shoot threes is a bonus. Verbal Commits has Scantlebury listed as a Sophmore along with Newkirk and Segwai, both of whom will be Juniors next season. So is Scantlebu...

It seems to me that, by the present NCAA rules, if there is no spring athletics then every affected athlete would be eligible to be red shirted.

Re: 2020 NEC Tournament

I watched the NEC Championship game. It was domination by RMU. Either SFU just did not bring their A game or RMU has just improved to the point where they are the clearly the dominant team in NEC MBB.
One thing for sure, they have a great Coach.

Re: Next Season

Guess we all agree that we need a good NEC caliber PG and PF. I am not worried about having only one scholarship to fill, because the assumption that everyone returns is not realistic. There will be transfers, it happens every year. Anyway, it appears that Udofia is gone so that is a second scholars...

Re: I know things are bad

I know things are bad when the highlight of the last game of the MBB season is that we had the opportunity give a standing ovation to the 2019 Football team!

Re: “Likely Out the Door”

Assuming DM is returning for his final year, if I were the AD I would be putting out informal feelers directed at Patrick Sellers letting him know that he has the inside track to be the Central HC for the 2022 - 23 season. I know the procedure is more complicated then that but it doesn't have to be,...

Re: “Likely Out the Door”

Unless I am grossly underestimating the university's Administration, they are not going to do a buyout. Not that they wouldn't like to do that but the easiest thing to do would be to just go for another year.

Re: FDU 2/18/20

I am for DM's return.
The reality is that eating the last year of the contract is not a good financial move.
Let's see what he can do in year 5.

Re: Time for a change...

Yes, there is no reason to go the administrative leave route in the middle of the season, something more is going on here.
This "administrative leave" is spin control.

Re: I know things are bad

I know things are bad when die hard fans post under topic called " I know things are bad" after a win. Sad but true. As the game had 7 seconds left and a 6 point lead, the realization that it was now almost impossible to lose this one, sunk in. What a strange feeling... that only highlighted that t...

Re: I know things are bad

Nice win! I liked the way they played with a "this is our game to win!" attitude at crunch time. There was some good defense in the final minutes. The three point shooting is developing nicely, that despite that Bryant did an excellent job of containing Krishnan for most of the game. Baker, Reed, an...
