    (2022) - SF Alex Karaban

    For the past four years every falling out with a top 100 recruit has felt like a gut punch. Just a short time into Woody's tenure and my reaction is so be it...we have several great options on the table. Refreshing!

    The top 4 feel solid to me heading into next season. I suspect that 5th spot will involve a lot of competition and rotation unless/until somebody breaks from the pack. And I agree with sentiments on Rob...of all the guys on the team he requires the most significant mental adjustment to stay in the conversation. I could see him landing anywhere from 5 to 10 on the list by mid-season.

  4. Good for him. The days of competing with Purdue for talent are quickly coming to an end. Woody intends to compete at a higher level, and rightfully so.

    Is anyone tracking private jets between Lexington, Fort Wayne and Bloomington yet? Kidding!

    I don't see Woody going 13 deep.

    Galloway brings a lot of intangibles and can guard multiple positions. Even if he never starts I see him as a 6th man of the year kind of guy by his 3rd or 4th season.

Still no mention of IU but the timing is interesting given that Bates just committed.

    Wonder if the Bates commitment opens the door for Woodson to get involved with Efton Reid who plays for IMG as well. He's the only top 25 recruit for 2021 without a single crystal ball prediction. 2021 Top Basketball Recruits (247sports.com)
  10. Very true. My sense is Ricketts is done investing in the team for a while. One championship was enough for him...he's going to milk it as long as he can.

    Something tells me he'll jump at the chance if we truly offer. Kyle Mangas helps Indiana Wesleyan basketball stay an NAIA powerhouse (indystar.com) “It’s kind of hard sometimes because you want to play the comparison game. I’m an IU basketball fan. So I’m watching games sometimes and I’m like, ‘How could I fit out there? How could I help them?’ But I don’t want to fall into that trap because it can play with your mind. I love it at IWU. I wouldn’t change a thing.”

    You are very focused on making one-to-one comparisons of the individuals on the roster. Do you not believe that a change in staff can/will improve how they execute as a team?

    Ideally they'll get plenty of time late in games, with a focus on maintaining leads.

    Indeed. I wish Miller well but he was stuck in quicksand and pulled the team in with him. To the point that the guys would have had more success without any coaching at all...if they had just played streetball.
