Charleston's rotation is also mostly made up of D2 and JUCO transfers, impressively.

Pretty cool for Hofstra to get a home game against Cincinnati in the NIT. Or it's at least a little cool. Based on ticket sales, it looks like they'll have a decent crowd too.

Also read that, after dropping 17 and 6 on the Lakers Anthony Lamb got bumped up to a full contract with the Warriors, which means he'll be on the playoff roster. He hit the max limit of 50 games for a two-way guy and got the backing of Kerr. Pretty awesome. Didn't see it coming.

Good for Hofstra.  Not sure how an 8 seed gets a home game though - I do remember SBU getting a home game against Illinois in NIT though, due to a concert conflict at Illinois.  Maybe the same here.

Amazed that Lamb has made it this far, due to his size and speed.  Good for him, but doesn't he still have those sexual allegations hanging over his head back in Vermont ???

Good get for Monmouth in the portal. Xander Rice, who led Bucknell in points and assists this year, joins a young team that showed some flashes in the second half and has everybody back.

anyone see princeton manhandle missouri from whistle to whistle on its way to the sweet 16?

passing.  that's all they did.  share the ball.  just like st. peter's last year.  or vermont every year.

There is definitely a role to be bombs away from downtown though as we saw from Charleston and Princeton (they took 34 threes and only hit 12 of them).

Yeah, I agree, we're old school guys.  But the metrics say if you can shoot 33.33% from 3, it's the equivalent of shooting 50% from 2, in terms of total points.  Everyone tries to exceed that 33.33% threshold as a team.  Surprisingly, we shot 32.2% from 3 this year (seemed worse to me), which equates to 48.3% from 2, which isn't half bad.  With more 3's taken, we see more misses overall, which certainly gives the perception of worse shooting, choice of bad shots, etc.  The game has certainly changed over the years, for better or for worse.

actually i wasnt even commenting about threes... i just meant they move the ball well.  and so they do more with less (we do less with more).

which opens up the outside shot of course.  if youre on defense, would you rather the offense be predictable, or unpredictable?  8) 

obvious but not all attempts are equal.  there is situational awareness, who is shooting, is it contested, where on the floor is the attempt, shot clock, is anyone in the paint, what personnel are on the floor.  the stats dont tell that story.

Yeah, all true, and good points.  Sounds like an avenue for some additional in-depth Kenpom analysis.

Notable transfers:

- Kam Woods and Duncan Powell out at A&T
- Raekwon Horton out at Charleston. He's from nearby Santee, SC, so I wonder what the rationale is. He played a prep year in Vermont so maybe Becker could swoop in?
- Myles Foster, Tahron Allen and Myles Ruth out at Monmouth. All solid role guys.
- 6-9/235 fr C Tyler Houser in at Delaware. He averaged 11 and 5 in his debut year at VMI, shooting 36 percent from three. A solid stretch 4.

I got a like on Twitter out of Jamel Warney when I tagged his name about SBU desperately needing an HC, and that they need to hire Warney. This is the very first time Warney acknowledged anything associated with his name with coaching and coming back to SBU to coach. Maybe I am reading into this way too much. But it's a start and a spark. Maybe if people start throwing his name out there, the President will take notice.

Although it would be pretty cool to see Warney at SBU, I'd like him to get some coaching training somewhere first (can be at SBU as an assistant).  Just remember though, being a great player doesn't make you a great coach.  Ewing was a great player, and a great guy, and years after putting in his dues as an Assistant, he flopped big time at Georgetown.

If Im stony brook (and Hofstra) Im looking at the whole st Johns roster right now.. with pitino going there Im hearing a lot of the team will be leaving.. it seems like Andre curbelo (Illinois transfer, from Long Island) is sucking up to speedy.. hes tweeting at Hofstra & speedy and liking their tweets.

I know lots of the St Johns players were allegiant to Anderson, but why would you leave a program that now has one of the all-time premier college basketball coaches in Pitino. To go to SBU or Hofstra?? Pitino will have them back in the Tournament next year.
