    General Basketball Thread for 2024-25

    Fortunately, I only deal with HS and below. There isn't enough money to pay me to work adult league games. I did it for baseball when I first started at age 22 and wow, the crying that would be involved in some situations. I think if you also played the game, you get a better perspective as an official as to what the player and/or coach is complaining about but there are some times, I've wanted to turn to a whining coach and be like, 'if you'd like to switch spots, I know I could draw up a better offensive set than whatever it is you're running right now'. I also wear glasses on the court and once had a kid react to a foul call by looking at his coach and saying 'he even wears glasses too'. That was maybe the easiest T I've ever given out. To the kid's credit, he did apologize at halftime for it.

    OMG Chris, it is a men's league in Wilmington, actually they play in the 76ers G-League facility. Age range I would guess is 20's to 40's. Some decent talent, there is a guy who is going to play at Sacred Heart University next season. But mostly it is usually an "organized" pickup game as depending on how close the game is fatigue sets in at some point usually mid-way second half or sometimes even first half and the cherry picking starts and it can look like a lacrosse and where it appears only a certain number of players can play on either end of the court. Few Notes: 1) Every single player thinks they are LeBron James. Not as much talent wise but they have the attitude of on offense every time they shoot and miss they were fouled. I told a guy once that if he was on the playground and he called a foul on that play they would laugh him off the court. On the defensive end they never committed a foul their entire life. 2) THREE separate occasions had guys while their team was on offense turn to me and point at a defender in the lane telling me to call defensive 3 seconds. Dude just because we are playing on a G-League court doesn't mean we are playing G-League/NBA rules. 3) I wear glasses which is never good for an official in a player's eyes, so I have been told multiple times that either my glasses are broken or they don't work. As I am sure you know Chris, they will try to intimidate you, but once they realize you are not about their BS they eventually shut up and "play".

    I wanna know more about this league you're reffing in Delaware and just how much crap you get from those guys on the court.

    Would the indoor facility for football be freestanding? If so, where would they put it?

    Sekou Sylla was about 6-4, 230. Undersized. Didn't have much of a perimeter game. Couldn't really defend perimeter players. Not a great athlete. He looked good in that Miami-Fla. ex. game and had pretty good length. But his size and game really didn't translate to D1. I thought Sulaiman was a tad better though he had his problems adjusting to the size and speed as well. The numbers are pretty similar, but when you're D2 POY, the expectations are higher. Sylla 2022-23: 6.0ppg, 4.3rpg, 50% FG, 71% FT, 3-6 3pt, 13 assists, 31 TOs, 5 steals (15+mpg) Sulaiman 2023-24: 5.8ppg, 4.2rpg, 47% FG, 33% 3pt, 83.6% FT, 17 assists, 25 TOs, 27 steals (18.5mpg)

    He was a very good D2 player. His lack of size didn't allow him to bully people at our level.

    Sounds like it might be a half a step up from the adult men's league games I ref in Delaware! Wonder how he is going to spend his $200 Foot Locker voucher.

    Zoom Meeting on 5/22

    There was a Zoom meeting for donors on Wednesday at 6pm. Probably not the best time but it was better than not having one. Steve Eigenbrot, Pres. Ginsberg, Coach Pete Shinnock and field hockey coach Katie Gerzabek Salem. Personally, I just wanted Steve to talk about NIL and the CAA, while answering questions. While they addressed some of those questions at the end, but there were no major surprises. They weren't going to say, "we're unhappy or concerned with all these teams leaving the CAA in all sports and basketball." Just didn't happen. I'd like more specifics about NIL. How far are we down the list of CAA teams? I assume we're in the middle of the pack, which is good enough to keep most of our key players. What about football and other sports? Speaking of football, the improvements are finally coming to the Field House, the Towson Center and more. Here's the thing. If you are going to spend $14M on improvements to the Field House (additional offices, team meetings, film rooms, expansion of academic center, more space to watch the games from an enclosed surfac) and $20-30M on the Towson Center renovation for training room space, turf for a football field and replacing the additional courts, football is not staying in FCS and the CAA forever. They are also adding a much-needed second weight room, but for some reason, it's also going in the Towson Center instead of the Field House. Having an indoor practice facility for football is a game-changer (likely 60 yards) and some sort of basketball practice facility, also used by volleyball, can't hurt recruiting.

    What is the NBL1? I’m no expert, but this guy was a marginal D1 player, regardless of what he’s doing now. The real problem here lies with whoever on our staff vetted this guy, and Skerry then stamping his seal of approval on signing him

    Here's something mystifying. Where was this production when he was here? It's like we were the desert around his oasis of success before and after playing here. https://twitter.com/NBL1/status/1792822971196965066
