Re: Ivy League

It is possible but there still could be an upset in the conference tourney that maybe gets 2 in.

Re: More News on Sam Merrill

There are guys in the NBA who aren't good defenders. There are guys who aren't all that athletic. It just depends what teams are looking for. In Merrill's case, he is a tremendous shooter. He can put the ball on the court and get his own shot. He is a willing passer. He is an absolute dead eye from ...

Re: New commit from Russia

Re: Roster is now filled out

Boise has quite few this year. NM gets their share too..It doesn't always work but the MW is an attracti...

Re: Sam Vecenie on Sam Merrill: "I think he's gonna get picked"

I think there are similarities between Merrill and Luke Babbitt. Though Babbitt was on the radar even in high school and entered the draft at a younger age they share some assets valuable to an NBA team. Both are knockdown 3 point shooters. Both are coachable and disciplined on and off the court. Th...

Re: Depth chart predictions

Yes it is. However, 6 of them have at least a season of play under their belt. I think Alford will open the season with a starting lineup that might look different by the end of the season. The sophomore jump would really help the Pack.

I don't think St Mary's has too much trouble getting games but Nevada has offered home and away for years and Bennet always says no. He will happily play the Pack in Moraga though. We had a neutral site game last year.

Mugtang used to run it and it was great..He sold it to someone else and now he has the MWC board. I think 247 actually runs the Nevada board now. It will perk back up again but it is a little slow now fer schizzel.
