    John Thompson passed away at 78. R.I.P. Coach.

    Marcus Morris has been cheap as hell his entire career. You’d think by now he’d be better at it.

    (2021) - CG Hunter Sallis

    Pretty good extended highlight reel of a game Sallis played against Lincoln North Star, which has Donovan Williams, a 6’5” ‘20 kid going to Oklahoma St(and who looks every bit of 25). Looks to have a lot of Ayo Dosunmu to his game, except he’s a much more dynamic athlete. Uses a lot of change of pace to create space for himself, and once he has an advantage the defender is basically helpless. Also looks like he competes pretty hard on both ends. I want to see some full games because, though he makes 3 or 4 perimeter shots in this one, and I know nothing about his shooting stats, he has an inconsistent release point on his shot and sometimes his elbow flys. So I’m comfortable guessing streaky shooter. But he’s so explosive downhill that a bad shooting game wouldn’t negate his effectiveness. Would be a killer in any system.

    Strikes me as a pretty accurate list. Would probably have Maryland above the 2 Michigan schools based on their insanely good recruiting base. But otherwise, 2 things; 1) Yet more validation of the extraordinary job Steve Pikiell is doing. I am such a fan of that guy. 2) Didn’t know Iowa’s standards for admission were softer than other schools. Interesting.

    Here it comes. Wade might be the guy brazen enough to defend himself with something like, “We’ve been taking advantage of these kids forever. I couldn’t be a part of it anymore.They deserve to be paid. The rules are arcane. So I got them what they deserved. I won’t apologize for being an agent for justice.” See, Will Wade is actually the Robin Hood of college sports. God, I loathe that guy.
  8. Agree. A Miller signing would in no way lessen the need for Kaufman. Kaufman is physically ready to come in and play 25 mins. With Miller, that body’s just not. The kid still looks like a calf on ice. He looks more like a 15 min guy to me as a Fr. But, man, when that kid grows into his frame he’s gonna absolutely kill people.
  9. UK offered, per Corey Evans.
  10. If he’s heavily connected in the DMV, I would assume he knows Shawn Harmon. No way that’s a bad thing.
  11. Was also on Sean Miller’s staff at Xavier. I’m a fan of Dan Hurley. The pedigree is pretty unassailable.

    (2021) - PF James Graham III to Maryland

    Yup, just like that. And I’ll be waiting for it like Barney Stinson waiting to be slapped.

    (2021) - PF James Graham III to Maryland

    Since I’m just not a fan of this kid’s game at all I can say with complete confidence that he’s going to roll into AH in probably ‘23 and drop 8 3’s on CAM’s top 5 ranked Hoosiers and lead sub.500 Maryland to the shocking road upset.

    I freely admit to being fashion challenged. But that combo of pants and shoes is.....troubling.
  15. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/eight-assistant-coaching-candidates-that-could-fit-iu-basketballs-needs/ Nice article by Mike, as always. Not sure how many legitimate candidates on this list, and a couple I’m pretty confident aren’t. But his profile is spot on.
  16. https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Article/Mason-Miller-Germantown-Tenn-basketball-recruiting-150383013/Amp/?__twitter_impression=true Nice interview with Miller. No matter the article the constants are IU and Creighton. From just a roster construction standpoint not sure OSU makes a ton of sense.
  17. Looks an awful lot like Isaiah Joe.
  18. Announced a top 8, IU not among them. Sean, we hardly knew Ye.

    Can’t really like this enough. Had 2 overpowering rock crushes at that point in my life: Lisa Germano and Maria McKee.

    https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/page/zachlowe29627328/ten-nba-things-like-including-michael-porter-jr-zion-williamson-power-rising-east Nice, mostly flattering, write up from Zach Lowe.
  21. See, I was going to include something like, “insert snarky shooting joke here.” But I sort of figured that would take care of itself.
  22. Don’t remember Griffin as a player at all. So looked up his stats. 2 things: 1) Had a really nice Sr year. Averaged 10.8 pts/6.5 assts/2 steals. 2) Couldn’t throw it in the ocean from 3. 29% for his career including 24% as a Sr.

    Bruiser Could Leave for UK?

    I won't pretend to be incredibly inside here, but it's my understanding that at this point Archie is communicating directly with Mohammed/Harmon and has been for a while. The only impact Flint's departure would have is if he convinced Cal to jump in. That would absolutely be a problem.
