I believe the state final games are all on PCN tv.  If you need more bball this weekend, and live in PA, you can watch our prized recruit.

Just randomly looking around that transfer list, one kid that stuck out was Nate Sestina from Bucknell, 6-9, 245 lbs, PF, averaged 15.8 ppg and 8.5 rpg, 78% FT.   Grad transfer.  Put up nice stats vs 3 A10 teams this year.

Wouldnt mind adding that to our team, if the chance arrives.

I'd be fine if Charlie Brown left their program.  :-)

Hey sorry for being ignorant on this one but did we get invited to the Battle for Atlantis?  I saw the reference to the Bahamas tournament.

We'd go there and come back like the ladies team after going down to Texas this past season. 
No thanks. 
The tournament takes place at Atlantis Resort and will feature a premiere field, which includes Iowa State, North Carolina, Oregon, Michigan, Gonzaga, Seton Hall, Alabama and Southern Mississippi.​ 

Now, the Bahamas tourn hasnt announced any teams yet.  That looks more our speed tho judging by past winners.
Nike is a tourn partner, maybe we can get on the good foot thru them, and get down there, would be a nice trip come end of November.

Interesting.  KD might already know the guys who are leaving the program.  Or he might just want to keep in good standing with this kid in case enough leave that a spot opens up.
To add Maceo, Ellis and Swingle(RS), plus this kid would be a pretty solid roster boost next year.

This kid looks like the kind of player that you see on ESPN on a tuesday night championship week game dropping 25 pts in the conference finals. 

I'm sure some here will question his game tho, the Duquesne Debbie Downers.

I dont think there will be an issue with at least one player leaving the program.  I've been thinking of one in particular for most of the year, and nothing has made me change my mind.

Here is something the team should look at often over the off season....

Go play the tallest international teams they can.  Try to learn how to rebound.

I'd wager $1 today that FT shooting does not improve next year, it might go up a point or two, but will cost the team some games. 

It sickens me that there are no home games next year, PPG sucks for bball.  But, if thats the cost to pay in order to get the Coop, cool.

Lots of talent on this team, but now they need to mature, improve on their individual weaknesses, and come together as a team.  2020-21 cant get here quick enough.

Interesting.  Wonder why play by play announcer Alex P. said the Palumbo will be no more.  I will check the details. Thanks.

Because the name is gone, well, in most part, because it will be known as the Cooper Fieldhouse.
And it wont look anything like it does now.

I feel a little better today about this game than I did Sunday night.  But just a little bit.  Out starting 5 all need to score, and not get in foul trouble.  Its really that simple, for tonight.  A little help from TDM or Lamar would not hurt.

Kennedy beat PR by 19. Play Mt Lebo next. Austin had 20 tonight.

https://tribhssn.triblive.com/tshiebwe-kennedy-catholic-use-2nd-half-surge-to-oust-pine-richland-in-piaa-2nd-round/

Saw a clip of the Mt Lebo game on twitter, they were up 1 with 5 minutes to play and just held the ball.  Clip was only about 1:30 long, but I thought Lebo wont get that chance vs Kennedy.   Could get ugly if they do.

The old barn looked pretty nice with a crowd, like I remember it when it opened.  Hopefully the Coop will host a lot more full houses...

I thought TDM would be in the running for 6th man, his few games when Sin was out probably cemented that award.
EW needs to get rid of, or greatly limit, the number of games scoring 4-5-6 pts.  He can be a 1st teamer next year.

Didnt Temple have some 7' guy too that made an impact that game?  It was intense, at my house anyway, that day.  Soooo close to NCAAs.

I would like to get #20.  It wont be easy.  Will need EW to score, 20+ I think.  No one else can be counted on to fill it up.

I think the girl from Peters has family tradition at PSU and was going there regardless of who the coach was.  Wouldnt hurt to inquire tho.

What DU needs to do, give the visiting team 4-5 rows behind their team bench, and thats it.  
Now, with the technology being what it is, and people buying tickets online, there is no way to prevent 100s people from buying blocks of open seats, Dayton, URI, VCU, SBU...dont matter.   I feel bad for what DU fans were stuck in the middle of that, I woulda moved or got in a fight.  
Maybe, check for billing zip codes online?  IDK.
