New name on roster

Re: New name on roster

Wait. What?

Re: New name on roster

National Championship surely coming now.

All kidding aside, a body at a position of need. He can't hurt, and as such, he raises the ceiling just a little bit, as the odds become better that at least one of these guys works out.

This is more intriguing than an Agatha Christie mystery!

Re: New name on roster

Led the team in pts and rebounds with 12 and 7 in a weak conference. Hey sign him up.

I'm at the point now where I'm just going to accept that Keith Dambrot is some kind of wizard and we will simply never understand his roster magic.

Re: New name on roster

I'm looking forward to asking Keith about the roster situation at the Meet & Greet on Thursday.

Re: New name on roster

He is for next year.
Start four centers and Lewis?
As usual,  the puzzle over scholarship numbers.

Here's what we're getting:

Looks like he's quick, pretty athletic, and has decent hands. Don't see much from a technical skill set from the video.

As I said previously " It"s raining men." Some of which are pretty big.

Re: New name on roster

I guess there's no guarantee this guy is on scholarship. With several hundred transfers still floating around, these kids can't be too choosy.

Econ69 he is playing this year as a grad transfer. He provides much needed back up to Robinson.  Go Dukes!

Re: New name on roster

Back up?  I watched 10 seconds of that clip and see him as a starter day 1.  He can actually move, with force and determination.

Exactly, one of the biggest question marks and concerns with this year's roster was interior depth and experience. This guy provides both in spades. Yet another sign that Dambrot just "gets" it before we ever even play a game.

Re: New name on roster

With the recent exceptions of a Damian Saunders or Ovie Soko, mid major programs like us get big men that generally fit into 1 of 2 categories.

1. They have true center height of 6'11" or 7'0" like Darius Lewis, but that comes with them having the skill set also similar to a Darius Lewis, basically such a project that 4 years likely isn't enough to iron out all the kinks.

2. They have the athleticism, skills, post moves, and technical playing ability that you want from a big man, a pretty polished game. Those guys are usually lacking in what you can't coach, height.

This guy seems to be leaning towards category two. I've seen him listed at 6'8" and 6'9". I just remember guys being here in the past listed the same way that end up looking closer to 6'7". He looks long in the videos though, which can help offset some size deficiencies.

Re: New name on roster

Coppin State players are always tough as nails, it takes courage just to go to that campus. I remember Scott Edgar getting stuck with the John Carroll return home and home game, they got beat by 50 and we're glad to get out of Baltimore as soon as possible.

Good luck to this fellow, thanks CLK, you are the best finding these additions.

My thoughts exactly.

Re: New name on roster

Reminds me of Ovie a bit.  Though he is undersized for the A10, he is long, athletic, & will have the "man among boys" thing working in his favor.
This roster thing is bananas but fun to follow.
Welcome aboard!

Where did Nick Washington go ?

Re: New name on roster

Nick Washington no longer appearing on roster at goduquesne.com.  Any idea what is going on with that?

Re: New name on roster

Maybe not qualified for first semester? Don't know.

Re: New name on roster

Re: New name on roster

When did Chas Brown enroll in school ? What graduate program starts the first week of October ? Now the scholarship numbers this year and next year are worrisome . Now his relationship with Lebron and Nike are a concern to me. I would love it if the Dukes turn it around but not by doing it the wrong way. But then again, maybe it's the only way now a days .

With all due respect, I hope Dambrot would be doing better than a kid who played 18 games for one of the worst teams in the country last year with dirty money.

I agree. All things considered, I would assume he is not on scholarship. There are several hundred transfers still on the market with no scholarship opportunities still available. I assume this was a kid just looking for a last opportunity.
