    Can't name the source, who also referenced a Dayton transfer we are close to landing.

    Maybe Coach Shinnick can help Skerry out here 😆 16ppg; 44% overall and also a very stellar 44% on 3’s; 81% on FT’s. Worth a look I would think

    Fought hard against a good Charleston team last two days and lost both in extras. Same old Towson story, but this one had to be taken with a grain of salt. Just sucks they haven’t been able to finish. Would be Nice to have a spring sport at Towson!

    aren't scholarships renewed annually? I 100% agree with this post, we don't need all 3 of these guys - i'd swap all 3 and gamble on transfers...

    Paar played 36 minutes last season, avg 2.4ppg. Biekeu avg’d 1.7 ppg; Coleman avg’d 0.6 ppg. If all three are back next season I have to ask myself if Skerry has lost his fire and is just kinda going through the motions. Numbers don’t lie. None of these 3 young men are D1 players.

    I mean if he's good, who the hell cares what his age is? Are we to the point where we nitpick everything including a kid's age? When he's 25 after next season and wants to start a career then he'll leave after one year. This is college basketball as part of the NIL/COVID era. It's not about 18-22 year old's anymore. At least not in the next couple of years.

    Just so we’re clear, my comp was in his scoring avg last season compared to what Russell & Rizzuto scored here. In that limited context, I stand by my comparison. Fervently hope he comes in and averages double digits

    He received an extension a few years ago after he was looking at the Hopkins job. At the time, he was a big name. Not sure what the status is but with a new AD, it’s time to turn this thing around or I’d assume the seat would be very hot next season.

    I just assume others have to transfer whether they choose to or it’s chosen for them. Can’t got into a season with hicks May Conway Coleman beku and 2 transfers. I mean you can but if you do that, there will be a lot on here not counting next years record in skerrys career numbers …

    How many years left on Nads' contract?

    You assume we have 3 open ships. NT, Holden, Sylla, Russell and Gibson out; the 3 freshmen in. Since CT is apparently returning, it would appear there are only 2 open spots. Now, that assumes Paar, who didn’t play last season (or if he did, it was for like 5 minutes) returns. TBH, I don’t see why we need all 3 of Paar, Biekeu and Coleman back. That’s a lot of dead weight if all 3 return

    They are on spring break. I’ll find out more next Saturday

    1 and 6 my god. I want to say that we are so much better than that record. Cant afford to take many more L's or the season is over before it got started

    Those Dulaney teams had some serious talent. Got to see them play in person a few times. Che Evans was arguably the biggest name on those teams and he ended up transferring from SDSU to UTEP to USC Upstate. I would not have guessed that none of those kids would have stuck at their original school. Nature of the beast that is the transfer portal I suppose.

    Agreed, someone like this could work if you can also land a first or second team All-Conference guy from a mid-major (easier said then done). People act like that is a heavy lift for Skerry to accomplish, but as much as I stick up for him this is the current climate of college hoops and a big part of his job now is working the portal to land talent. If you can't do that off two of our most successful seasons in the conference when can you do it. I think Cornish seems like a risk, but a decent target. The portal is such a weird mix of waiting for the right player, but making sure you strike before everyone gets to the targets you want. A lot of these players seem like they have higher end options than us, and we will just have to wait for the pool to shrink a little or for the absolute perfect connection to pop up. This definitely makes mid-major recruiting a heckuva a lot more interesting than it used to be.

    I probably wouldn't take any bench players from Maryland, but here is one we offered and he's from Baltimore https://umterps.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster/ike--cornish/10462 https://verbalcommits.com/players/ike-cornish

    Ken Reeves was an all-time great coach

    Well, I remember Coolidge, Thorpe, Salami and Gomez all went to public school. Wait, that was The White Shadow 😆 Ok, point taken. Private schools have siphoned off the cream of the crop of kids who otherwise might have gone to public school

    How many of those Baltimore Public School kids are qualifiers?

    I think it’s logical to closely scrutinize kids from this area who are in the portal, in the event any of them are particularly keen on coming back home (family issues, for example). I think it’s also logical to look at kids we originally recruited, who are now in the portal, seeing as presumably each side has familiarity. While watching 1 of the NCAAT games the other day, it was interesting to hear one of the announcers explain how a kid on one of the teams (might have been San Diego State) was recruited by SDSU, but went elsewhere. The head coach told him something like, “good luck, but hey, keep us in mind, just in case for some reason things don’t work out for you at the school you chose over us.” Sure enough, things didn’t work out, and sure enough the kid wound up transferring to SDSU. One thing that’s always intrigued me about Skerry’s recruiting is the lack of players he’s brought in from Baltimore City. There was Mims, from Poly, and we know how that worked out. Am I forgetting anyone? He’s been big on the Philly area and the DC Catholic League and even Florida (EK, Prophete and the U brothers, Victor and Solomon). I get it that the top tier Baltimore kids aren’t coming here, but what about those in the 2nd tier?

    Well there goes someone from the D1 ranks who has a longer streak of not making the tournament than us. There are now 3 original teams without ever making it to the dance. legit question, why is this area so obsessed with local kids? How many of these local guys work out? Not many. Most kids don’t want to stay at home. There’s plenty more talented players elsewhere. Need to look elsewhere.

    St. Francis College in Brooklyn is dissolving their athletic department. They currently play in the NEC (with FDU). Looked at their roster and they have a couple of local/regional kids....a 6'8" Forward from Wilmington Delaware and a 6'3" guard from Baltimore. Not sure if they're any good but they're available. 2022-2023 Men's Basketball Roster - St. Francis Brooklyn Athletics (sfcathletics.com) St. Francis (Brooklyn) to drop NCAA D-I athletic program (espn.com)

    Right. A team that used to throw up bricks and rely on getting fouled or offensive rebounds, led the league in three point shooting this past season.Never suggested the offense was perfect, but they have made major strides. It starts with recruiting more skilled players.
