  1. Four's team makes the championship game with an upset over the 2-seeded Overseas Elite team and that game went about how you'd expect an upset like that would occur. I only watched the 2nd half and Four didn't play. Not sure if he was in during the first half. Championship and $1 million on the line Tuesday night against the Marquette alumni team.

    I guess Dartmouth Game is now Postponed

    Also makes sense from a travel perspective that a conference has a situation where Penn State will play at Nebraska and Nebraska will play at Rutgers yet Nebraska won't get to play South Dakota State at home. I agree with the tweeter that says we should get back on Maryland's schedule. It's tough to say you're going to kill games because of travel and then go 1500 miles for a conference game when there's a non-con game available 30 miles up the road.

    2020-21 Schedule

    With the Ivy League making their decision about sports in the fall semester yesterday, I'd guess that Penn game on November 24 is off the board.
  4. I watched the nightcap between CP3's team and whoever their opponent was with NC's Christian Keeling going off. I admit that the idea of the Elam Ending is gimmicky but it made for a real exciting ending of that game and I can see why they'd want a game to end on a made basket rather than have a parade of free throws.

    After the schedule synopsis just above me, I was like, where's the Emerald Coast Classic that was posted last month? I went to their website and I see Florida, Illinois, Oregon on there. Then I click on this Heat Check CAA twitter page and he's doing a SIMULATION of a season and he had us scheduled in that tournament as a part of the SIMULATION. Spoiler, we went 7-22 in the simulation and got walloped by UNCW in the 1-8 game.

    That's a good grab especially since it'll be on CBSSN. So I wonder who that will put Navy against. That 2-game series had been an attractive one having gotten Carolina, Florida, and Auburn among others to show up. I saw NC-Temple and Florida-Navy a few years ago. So if we're playing St. Joe's in one game, I wonder if Navy attracted a big name to come in.

    Shame

    "An amazing situation at Delaware". Yeah, and that amazing situation, if you're a part of it and lead your team to the Tournament, will get you noticed by PLENTY of scouts. But if you go to a bigger school and you don't see the star minutes there that you would have at UD, you won't get as noticed. The grass isn't always greener, kids. But hey, Delaware's loss is the CAA's gain.

    I think he said Wright State and not Kent State as part of that tourney in Nashville (Wright State + Valpo + one other). St. Pete will have Liberty and us and 2 others.

    Transfer Portal thread

    Son of Terry Porter, the former Blazer great AND coach of your Portland Pilots. That’s right, son is skipping out on pops and apparently, it’s not the first time this has happened as older brother Franklin did it last year by taking the grad transfer route. As of this writing, Terry is still the coach at Portland.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    And it'll be interesting to see just how damaging those other circumstances will be once those other schools learn them.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    Because this is night #45 of no games on TV, I decided to do a little research into Skerry's transfers and how they performed at D-1 schools after they left Towson. 2011-12 Transfers -- Deon Jones (left after freshman year to Monmouth), Jervon Pressley (left after freshman year to Hampton) Jones -- at Towson -- 7.0 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 1-31 record. at Monmouth -- 12.8 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 57-45 record with an NIT appearance Pressley -- at Towson -- 3.6 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 1-31 record. at Hampton -- 6.4 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 56-42 record with 2 NCAA appearances (win in the First Four) and a CBI appearance 2013-14 transfer -- Four McGlynn (left after junior year to Rhode Island) McGlynn -- at Towson -- 10.5 ppg, 39.3% from 3, 37-31 record with 1 CIT appearance. at URI -- 11.6 ppg, 34.7% from 3, 17-15 record 2014-15 transfers -- Byron Hawkins (left after sophomore year to Murray State and then Bryant), AJ Astroth (left after sophomore year to Hampton) Hawkins -- at Towson -- 10.2 ppg, 37.1% FG, 32-33 record with 1 V16 (really V8) appearance. at Murray -- 7.2 ppg, 44.3% FG, 26-6 record, scored 8 points vs WVU in NCAA. at Bryant -- 11.7 ppg, 38.1% FG, 10-20 record Astroth -- at Towson -- 3.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 12-20 record. at Hampton -- 5.9 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 32-33 record with 1 appearance in NIT & CBI though he only played 6 games in his final year 2016-17 transfers -- Zane Martin (left after sophomore year to New Mexico), Justin Gorham (left after sophomore year to Houston) Martin -- at Towson -- 12.5 ppg, 44% FG, 38-27 record. at New Mexico -- 10.1 ppg, 41.5% FG, 19-14 record Gorham -- at Towson -- 6.3 ppg, 53.4% FG, 38-27 record. at Houston -- 3.0 ppg, 34.1% FG, 23-8 record 2018-19 transfers -- Yagizhan Selcuk (!) (left after freshman year to Montana), Allen Betrand (left after sophomore year to TBA) Selcuk -- at Towson -- 1.8 ppg, played in 5 games at Montana -- 2.5 ppg, played in 11 games Betrand -- at Towson -- 9.1 ppg, 41.5% FG, 29-35 record Yes, there were other transfers out of the program -- the Ingrams, Flashes, Hairstons, and Prophetes of the world -- but those didn't register on the sports-reference database as going to another 4-year D1 school. Of those who left, I'd say that only Jones, Pressley, and Hawkins for one year made somewhat of an upward move. At least those 3 contributed in a major postseason tournament. But did the others better their basketball situation by leaving Towson? It doesn't appear so and we certainly could have used just about all of these guys in the seasons after they left (except for that Selcuk character). You can make whatever inference you want but mine would be that the personalities just don't gel with either the team or the coach or both.

    And there you have it...a spot has opened up

    Big games against Delaware and Drexel and he was paving the way to be a star and then he just flames out at the end of the season and now he's gone. I remember he had a crap game against Regent and it seemed like there was something weird in that he got disinterested after that? I just don't get it. Guy can be the alpha and basically run his own team and now he's going to go thru the process again to try to find another team. I get it that nowadays, the environment across the country lends itself to kids looking to better their situation and they should but in a number of instances, I just wonder if the grass is really greener.

    20 Game Conference Schedule

    UMBC -- Natural rivals and we'd play them twice a season which would inevitably tick you off. 🤣 I think it would depend on what city the conference would want to get into. They're already on Long Island with Hofstra so Stony Brook makes about as much sense as my UMBC proposal would and Elon/UNCG are pretty close to each other as well. Guessing that if they invited one for basketball, it would be someone who is already involved with football so SB and Albany seem most logical and it doesn't really add any extra miles to the travel budget. The power conferences are starting to take their cues from the Big Ten and ACC who went to 20 games after seeing how successful they were. It kinda sucks for us if we wanted to try to schedule a bigger name but from a basketball fan standpoint, I'd much rather see a Virginia-Carolina game or a Michigan State-Illinois game in late November/early December than these bought games against the likes of Radford, Longwood, Oakland, and Western Illinois. Plus, given what could happen in the fall with football season and the economy, AD's aren't going to be shelling out the cash for bought games.

    Tom Flacco article on ESPN

    The article says he graduated from Rutgers?

    Transfer Portal thread

    That's the first name on this whole thread that I'd genuinely want to see in black and gold. With the signing/commitment of Allen, that probably takes anybody else out of the running. Minlend's dad was a hell of a player at St. John's and son is pretty damn good in his own respect. I would expect a P5 team will snap him up as soon as they can.
