2022-23 Transfer Portal

Recommended Posts

I’m glad he’s (apparently) coming back. At this point though, I won’t officially believe he’s back until fall semester starts. At that point, it would be too late for him to transfer to another school. Who knows, maybe he’ll tweet tomorrow he’s turning pro & is going to play overseas. I can only imagine what other CAA message boards are doing with this-1st probably happy he was leaving; now probably disappointed he’s staying. IF he does come back, you can’t help but liking our prospects. We’ll be a bit small, in terms of the starting front court, but hopefully between Paar, Coleman and Bieku (sorry for misspelling his name-I can never remember the right spelling) we can get some serviceable minutes. Besides, Sylla & Russell will help on the boards. I’m also intrigued by the 2 incoming freshmen, and wouldn’t necessarily sleep on either of them, although minutes might be tough for them to come by, unless one or both force Skerry’s hand by impressing during the preseason.

It’ll be interesting to see how proficient we’ll be shooting the 3. Timberlake & Gibson are known commodities, but what about anybody else? Conway maybe? Russell was ok from 3 last season at SEMO. Cam wasn’t particularly effective from behind the arc, as I recall.

Conway can shoot it from deep. Went 11 of 12 in a HS game once when he put up 55 in three quarters. Russell shot 34% from 3 and Rizzuto shot 36%. Cam is not a proficient three-point shooter as we saw, but is a damn good passer and I'm sure he'll be working on the 3. As I said, I'm not 100% sold on him playing the 3 with Sylla, who never shoots threes. But I think he's a smart enough player to adjust.

Agreed. Until he’s out there on November 11th, who knows haha. 
But this team, as of now, is built to win the CAA regular and tournament.  It’s NCAA or bust. No more excuses or moral victories.

Agreed. If the roster stays as presently configured, the pressure should be on Skerry to finally break through & get to the dance
