Source: Don't be surprised to see Quade Green transfer from Kentucky to LaSalle. Ashley Howard recruited him while at Nova. Cal already prepping for the loss. I'm told LaSalle would be the choice.

LaSalle rumored to be getting former McDonald's AA & Top 25 recruit from UK

I think he was asking more about how does the kid already have a new school picked out if he hasn't gotten his release yet. There are a lot of schools in Philly not named LaSalle.

I know he has a connection there, but sounds like the conversations have already been had, which would be against the rules.

That's fantastic!! Now Spina won't have to refer to St. Patrick's day as March 17. He can call it Selection Sunday.

Ben Howland now has all hands on deck for 18-19. All four Mississippi State's players who declared for the NBA Draft are coming back. Bulldogs should be in SEC's top tier.

Auburn had Jarred Harper, Austin Wiley and Bryce Brown return after testing the NBA draft waters but lost leading scorer Mustapha Heron to transfer. Even with Heron gone it still looks like they should be a top 15-20 and contender in the SEC.

Auburn and Mississippi should be two chances to get statement victories next year

Hard to believe a young, totally inexperienced UD team that had 26 TO's lost by only 2 last year down there after being down by over 20 points in the 2nd half. UD had the ball in the last seconds only to have it stolen away..

Stanford power forward Reid Travis is transferring from the program, a source tells @247Sports. Averaged 19.5 PPG & 8.7 RPG last season.

Big blow to potential Battle for Atlantis opponent

We would love to have this kid. A back to the basket, tough player, who still has his name in the draft. If he pulls out, he is KY bound.

Recent bracketologies...Auburn 3/3...Miss State 4/7...Davidson 10/11...Indiana 7/9...Nevada as a 2/3, wow.

Very tough year for the A10, Juan Bid.

It was supposed to be one bid last year too.
Its way too early to know, but a ‘normal’ year in the A10 is three bids.

I think the A10 top to bottom will be a better conference next year top to bottom but I can buy it being a 1 bid league.

On paper right now I don't think there's a dominate team coming into next year. The key to getting multiple bids has been having teams that finish with 14+ conference wins and the top teams getting separation from the pack. I could see a situation where 12-13 wins the conference next year.

Other than George Mason the teams getting projected at the top like StL and Davidson have some talent coming back but are breaking in a lot of new guys and St Joes has some serious injury question marks. Might take them a while to gel and cost them a chance at some marquee OOC wins

We are slotted to hang out with our pal Juan Bidd every year it seems and every year we get in three or more.

Still no big signed. Absolutely laughable at this point

I keep reading about not having a big man. Toppin is 6'8'', Mikesell is 6"7", Matos is 6"6"and Policelli is 6"8''. Last year the first person off the bench was Savboda who was 6"6" but was a step slow. Next was Kostas who never improved his game and was 190 lbs. I don't know how good these players are but there is plenty of overall height.

The game has changed over the years. A big man who can't move, dribble penetrate and shoot from at least 15 feet is more of a liability than an asset. Those 6"9" and above who can do all that are few and we have little chance of getting one of them.


We really need a backup point guard. Maybe the non scholarship freshman is the answer?


Last year ,we had no bench. I think will be much improved this year

Crutcher will play a lot... Cohill will spell him at times at the 1 in addition to playing mostly at the 2

I don't think height matters so much but whether or not a guy can play around the basket.

Pollard at 6'5 can bang in the post, X. Williams at 6'8 can't. Luke Fabrizius was 6'9 but he couldn't rebound or defend a big guy down low.

Open question whether Obi or Frankie can play in the paint.

Very legitimate question whether the players that are here are able to defend and rebound against the better front lines in the A10.

I get what you are saying, but it is still very valuable IMO to have a guy that can play with his back to the basket. Having somebody like that just seems to create so many problems for the opposing defense, it really opens up your offense.

The defense has to collapse, which opens up the perimeter, creates passing lanes, and makes it easier to dribble drive. Good inside-out basketball is hard to stop.

I have solved the big man issue. We just have to wait a few years to get him. 6'11" 12 yrs old Canadian. He has a 15 year old brother and dad is 6'8".
