Re: Off Season Improvements

I always tell her there is only room for one perfect person in a marriage 😇. As far as our Assistant Coaches I think there are guys ready to take over. So we all agree the team and Coaches need to continue to improve. We agree for the most part that the arrow has remained upward and we agree my wif...

Re: 2018-19 DI Hoops Coaching Carousel

Apparently one name being mentioned now for the St. John's job is former Mizzou and Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson. And according to Jon Rothstein it'll be announced as early as tomorrow: Anderson and SJU came to an agreement last night. If Anderson can hire someone from the New York area to rec...

Re: Off Season Improvements

The best coaches are surrounded by sound assistants. Do we have an assistant that you'd plug into as HC if BW left? If so then I'll stop harping on this. That's a question I've asked in the past and gotten no response. I'm of the opinion that no one on staff is currently ready to assume the helm if...

Re: Off Season Improvements

If we are trying to quantify the success of a season, a conference tournament title and an NCAA bid carry more weight than the first 5 games of the conference season. Now this is just preposterous. in 2017-18 Wardle and staff were 9-9 in conference and finished 5th. In 2018-19 Wardle and staff were...

Re: Off Season Improvements

So you don’t think the program continued on an upward trajectory this last year? The last month of the season, yes. Through the end of January, no. It's still too early to say if last season continued the program on an upward trajectory, but I do think the program appears to be moving in the right ...

Re: 2019 MVC Recruits

With Porter staying at Loyola they got another JUCO commit today. Jalon Pipkins, a 6-4 guard from Paris JC. He averaged 21.4 ppg, 4.5 rpg and 4.5 apg. Decent player who didn't do much as a freshman at Cal Northridge. He may develop into a decent player by junior or senior year at LU, but I don't ex...

Re: Off Season Improvements

I'd like us to improve our coaching staff. It took BW an awful long time to make the needed adjustments. That does not just fall on him. What if Shaun Livingston wants to start coaching. He is most likely retiring after this season. He'll need to be an assistant. I know he'll probably stay in the N...

Re: 2019 MVC Recruits

Loyola got a commitment from a really good JUCO PG today. Keith Clemons from Vincennes committed to the Ramblers. He is 6-1 and originally from Georgia. Sounds a lot like Danya Kingsby. 15 PPG, 5.0 APG, 44%, 40% from three and he lived at the line and made 85%. 73rd ranked JUCO player. He's going t...

I'm not sure where you've seen that Bradley is interested in Fojo Adetogun Lake Camelot. :?: Outside of maybe being friends with Jashon Henry I don't think the kid even has any American college offers yet. He's not ranked in the top 25 Canadian players like Henry was, and the video of him does nothi...

A name being discussed for the Lipscomb job: Ayers has been an assistant at Belmont for 21 seasons, the last 8 as associate head coach. Interesting shuffle between the two intra-city schools. Definitely. Belmont would run the risk of having some serious egg on their face if their bypassed, loyal an...

Re: 2019 BU recruiting

And Thomas is going to be a pretty good player eventually, maybe not right away, but I do think he would be steady already. Based on a few game videos I've seen I agree. He's coming into a perfect opportunity to serve an apprenticeship and learn the position the right way behind Brown and Kingsby.

Idaho State

Mississippi Valley State
Hiring by these five schools will likely precipitate additional coaching vacancies elsewhere. And if I'm Lipscomb I try to lock my coach up ASAP.

Looks like Valpo is going to try the Bradley blueprint. They got a commit from Canada after a couple from Europe the previous day.
Thanks to all of the defections, it sounds like they're facing the same desperation for recruits that Wardle faced in his first year.
