Re: Recruiting under Sellers off to a good start...

I hate to mention what's possibly a bad omen. I think the last time we recruited a big man from Quebec (2002 I believe) he left before the season began. But hey, we went on to the dance that year and to CCSU-4's points, the big man isn't the same asset to our program that he used to be.

Didn't Ellison's dad also play a year at Western CT?

Re: 2021-22 Non-Conference Schedule

CCSU is playing NC State on 11/16 at Mohegan Sun, UMass-Lowell on 11/17. A nice opportunity to play a high-major at a quasi-home game. We need to get as many students/alumni there as possible. A nice test to see if Patrick Sellers and Tom Pincince can lead a campaign to get students interested/invo...

Sorry to Hear of Kevin Oliva's Passing

This was sad news. I only met him once, but remember he was good guy and funny. Sympathies to him, his family, and all others affected.

Re: Big Board!

Not sure. Am I embarrassed because it's taking long or just depressed that not many (especially those outside of the program) are expressing concern over this long wait. I hope for a coaching staff that can bring the program back to a point where there IS more global interest in a CCSU coaching vaca...

Re: Big Board!

I wonder if they're giving the new hire time to arrive on campus so a press conference can complement the announcement. Or something small like that. I know none of the candidates live particularly far, but am just sayin'.

Re: Big Board!

When I look at how other D1 vacancies across the country are filling up, I don't see how this can take much longer. Especially considering no one on our list is a prospect somewhere else. (as far as I know)

Re: Time to Start Naming Names...

Oh wow, I'm just realizing now that I had a pretty long conversation with Kelvin Jones way back when he was at USMMA. He was recruiting at the Kingswood Invitational, was a nice guy. But I'd have to agree with those lower odds for him on this gig. We'll see.

Re: Time to Start Naming Names...

Sorrentine and Kingsley don't come from scholarship programs. How much consideration should that receive, if any?

Re: Time to Start Naming Names...

If Sorrentine were hired and named Taylor Coppenrath an assistant, we'd have coaches who, as players, put a mid-major on the map!

Outlaw enters transfer portal

I say this makes it official we're starting from scratch next year. For a moment, I thought we might get enough back to make some modest improvements since last season. And though we might have a better record next year, I highly doubt it will be significant. But hope I'm wrong.

Re: UHart out of the AE????

In terms of basketball, I think a move to AE would be a lateral one. AE is a better hoop conference, but that shouldn't be the only reason we make the move, or work to make the move. If I were looking at men's basketball conference prestige only, I wouldn't look to make switch until we could get int...
