Those are pretty serious numbers. Played against likes of Bradley, Drake, some other decent Midwestern schools

From yesterday:

@willie_anderson

Appreciate all the schools recruiting Denzel Mahoney at the present time. However, Denzel is down to his top 4 schools Creighton, Ole Miss, Georgia and Virginia Tech.

Thank you

Wonder if Dayton still has interest in Braun Hartfield from Younstown State? Supposedly, he visited Valpo last week, but not sure who else is after him.

Very inconsistent and not the best FT and 3pt shooter.

.622 free throws
3pointers i pulled page down, but wasn't great wasn't bad.

Positive 6 foot 6 guard, 4.2 boards a game
Neg 185 pounds.

Inconsistent numbers if you look at individual games and scoring records for 2017-'18

2.6 assists per game too. At this point, he doesn't seem to fill a real need. We NEED a big.

But I can also see the logic in stockpiling guys who have the size and skill set to play multiple positions, who can fill every area of the stat sheet.

Hartfield leg the Horizon League in steals, shot 34-35% from 3 despite being ice cold to end the year and had good games offensively against Butler and Depaul.

I would guess he's off the board now with Watson but I would have been fine with taking him

Nevada forward Marcel Pettway will transfer and has the chance to play immediately next season, he tells @Rivals. Sat out this past year after transferring from Bryant where he averaged over 10 points and six rebounds his sophomore season.

Pettway got recruited over at Nevada with a McDonald's AA and another grad transfer big coming in. Undersized power foward. He's only 6'5 but the guy is 250 and built like a tank.

A 6'9" 240lb SR center, Connor MacDougall transfering from New Mexico is immediately eligible and hasn't been mentioned on this thread as yet. He injured his ankle last season and missed many games. He is listed as a 3 star and scout even had him as a 4 star. Shoots 80% from the free throw line and has good post moves.

He could be the big man that would give Cunningham some rest. We should at least invite this kid in. It would be worth taking a look because the list of available big men that are available is dwindling fast.

Attended Corona Del Sol High School in Arizona and was the second rated center in the state his senior year in 2014! He was recruited by Arizona St. and then decommited to New Mexico.

He isn’t by chance related to former Alabama star, Antoine Pettway, is he? Grant hired Antoine as an assistant at Alabama and I think there is a pretty strong relationship there.

Pettway was the Northeastern Conference's freshman of the year

During his two seasons at the D-I level, Pettway has averaged 10.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and one steal per game while shooting 58.9 percent from the field. As a sophomore, Pettway ranked second in the NEC in field-goal percentage and ninth in rebounding.

Bryant is considered a low-major D-I school, but Pettway has had some success against higher-level schools. He recorded 15 points, 12 rebounds and three assists against Georgetown during his freshman season. He scored 15 against Michigan and tallied 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting against Gonzaga. He's scored a career high of 26 twice: against Central Connecticut and Fairleigh Dickinson. He had a 25-point game versus Yale.

Built like an NFL linebacker, Pettway was a true post player at Bryant, but he wants to expand his game during his redshirt season at Nevada.

Too bad! We could really use an ice cold guy after losing Svoboda and Crosby. Who will lay the bricks now??

He went to the free throw line more than anyone on his team but was only 92 for 145 for .634%. Pollard improved his senior year. Maybe Dishman could get some instruction and improve his percentage as well!

I agree. That's within a range where there wouldn't be a radical Hack-a-Shaq strategy by the opponent. Like any marginal free throw shooter, he would be pulled on offense in the last minute if circumstances warrant it.

Low foul rate I'll take two. In 27 minutes a game. 2.4 fouls

Shot 57% from the field too!

Where do we sign!

I'd love to see Dayton go after him as a Josh Cunningham replacement. Dishman plays physical in the post, and scores a lot on put backs and hustle plays. You don't have to run offense for him. He'll get his regardless. And he can be better with a year to get stronger while sitting out. Probably ideal to get him bulked up from 215 lbs, closer to 225/230 like Pollard or Cunningham. Dishman's rebounding prowess -- not quite at Cunningham's level but superior to Pollard's -- should translate, and will be much needed next year when Josh is gone.

Oh, and PS - Dishman is sort of an ironic name for a Bull in a China shop kinda player!

Thomas played in 12 games for Louisville last season. The Norcross, Ga., native averaged 2.2 points and 1.3 rebounds while shooting 64.3 percent from the floor.

The 4-star prospect ranked as the 28th-best power forward and the 120th overall player in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Probably not returning because he'd be behind Nick Marshall, Memphis 4-star transfer via JUCO. Look at TSU's roster of centers and please explain why we can't get someone 6'9" 250. If the answer is their's aren't any good, read Marshall & Mekowulu's resumes again.

We're far too busy going after 6'3 guards and 6'8 forwards that weigh less then 200 pounds to worry about big post guys. I've seen posts on other threads about "banking" a scholarship. We've got one true PF/C on the whole roster, and he graduates after this year. We've got no big signed on the dotted line with two scholarships to give. And there is talk of "banking" a scholarship?

This has gone from frustrating to apathetic disappointment.

I'm very curious to see who the staff gets with the last two scholarships

With these grad transfers it's a case of using a scholarship for a year versus leaving it open. Doesn't tie up a scholarship for a guy in 2019 or beyond. Pretty low risk for UD

I'm starting to wonder if there's some sort of issue with maybe a lack of grad programs at UD

BRob2Perryman3: I concur completely. A head coach does not earn the title of “great recruiter” by how well you recruit 6’0” guards. You get labeled a great recruiter by how well you recruit BIGS. That is, centers and power forwards who can get the rebound and play interior defense. Games are won by excellent defense.

If you live by the three pointer than you can die by the three pointer on a bad shooting night. Ask the Houston Rockets about their bad shooting night when all the chips were down on the poker table.

But, i understand Anthony Grant’s dilemma. Dayton historically has not been able to compete for top talented BUGS against the power 5 conferences or state schools. I have seen with my own eyes on this blog that Dayton fans will not accept recruiting a BIG with any flaws in his background. Dayton fans were so burned by Dumb and Dumber from Columbus Northland high school thAt they are convinced that recruiting a kid with mistakes on their record is a mistake. Dayton fans say, “recruit a kid with a bad history? Look how recruiting Dumb and Dumber worked out?” So, This is why Grant gets paid the BIG bucks. He needs to recruit a BIG kid who is a saint with a squeaky clean record and can actually play the game of basketball.

It is June bro. At some point there is no more recruiting for 2018. Toppin, Mikesell, Policelli and Cunningham will be fine for this year. I'm sure bigs are #1 priority for 2019.

Also, how much college basketball do you watch? There's like 5-10 true back-to-the-basket centers in all of college hoops (good ones I mean). We've had a grand total of 1 during my time as a fan (2004 - present).

Don't think he's talking about back-to-the-basket centers, necessarily, as much as getting that 6-7/6-9" guy with girth.The guy weighting 240-250 that can be a bruiser with some skill that will mix it up and not the guy UD "hopes" to put 25-30 lbs. on in another couple years.

That's fair. The closest thing we'll have to that is Landers and Cunningham. Trey isn't 6'7", but it isn't crazy to think he'll be pushing 240 by next year. Cunningham is close to that mark already.

I think we'll see Trey slide to the 4 quite a bit next year, when Mikesell, Policelli, or Matos are playing the 3. Though not tall, Landers/Cunningham would be quite the beefy load down low.

You just won't let this go. I guess you define, strong arm robbery, theft, and credit card fraud as "mistakes," "flaws," or "blemishes." I would call it a criminal history.

Okay, so I read this too fast and I swear I thought you were talking about a back-to-the-basket center who was just 5'10. That would be awesome!!!

But yeah, I have to imagine Grant's staff is still hoping to add some size, even though time and the odds are now against us. So hoping against hope. Ideally, the size could play next year. But we're going to need size even more than we need it now the year after when Cunningham is gone. So we'll take what we can get as soon as we can get it ya know.

It is what it is. I get that. But I don't know if I'd say we're going to be fine. Hopefully we can win small and quick. At least we know that it is possible.

There's still some guys left out there as sit out transfers that could potentially step in to replace Cunningham.

Bryce Nze from Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Justin Gorham from Towson, Deandre Dishman from Eastern Kentucky, Lance Thomas from Louisville, Donovan Mitchell from Wake Forest

JUCO is tapped out now, high school maybe Kenny Isnord.

Gotta get something this year because I think tapping a freshman to take over Josh is a tall task, grad transfer big next year is gonna be tough to get and a JUCO big is a coin flip.

Going forward there's some good big guys in this conference and the lone top 100 recruits in the A10 this year are power forwards. I'm a small believer but you still need some size to defend and rebound against Hassan French and Gordon from STL for the next couple years

Well we are not Nova....

not only did we NOT win the National Championship, we didn't even win half our games. What's your point relative to UD???? Mine is we are not going to do well with the team we have. We need some beef and fast.

This is true but I think somewhat misleading to fall back on the Villanova example. Spellman wasn't a traditional center but he could defend the traditional bigs. Their PF Eric Paschall is 6'9 255. They could still matchup with anyone with that line up.

To me at least there's a big difference between using the Warriors, Rockets or Nova as an example and then saying because they can do it, the current roster for Dayton can.

You can win without a traditional lineup but at least my mind there's still some real defensive and rebounding questions outside of Cunningham for the taller guys.

Can UD play man with Trey Landers on a Hassan French, Grant Golden, Cart'are Gordon? Can Ryan Mikesell be the guy who defends the other teams biggest player in man to man defense?

I think we can compete for the A10 Championship with what we have and what we know we are getting to-date. The main reason is the A10 is lacking virtually any separation this coming season. Two wins or two losses can determine 1 -14 in the A10 next season.

Will it open up 3 NCAA invites? Maybe.

Not saying we are going to win the championship, but there are many ways to win.
Villanova had a stud big, Omari Spellman, so it worked out great. He will get drafted by the NBA. Spellman had 59 blocks, and was a space eater on defense. No one on our current roster compares with Spellman in size.

It is not only about inches of height, but wing span, big body, leaping ability and hands.

We can talk about no need for next year, but what happens when Cunningham gets into foul trouble or gets injured?

St Louis, Richmond, VCU, Davidson and Bonnie, to name a few, all have decent bigs.

Playing small worked out pretty well in 2014-15. Sure I'd like to get a big soon, but it is not mandatory. We are bigger right now than we were in 14-15.

Last year was a disappointment. You blame it on us playing small. To me, it was more about losing 4 seniors and leaning on Freshmen to play big roles.

The comparison to Nova was not to suggest we can win the NCAA title with this team. Just showing the right combo of players can win even without traditional bigs. But we can win games in the A10 with what we have.

Just because no one on this board is talking about a big (over 6'8", 225) doesn't mean the coaching staff is not recruiting a big. I suspect UD will have atleast one more big (either a freshman or a grad transfer) on the team next year. This coaching staff is much more quiet than than AM's staff. And, no, I have no inside information just a gut feel.

It seems to me that we have Combs potential contribution more than covered with our current squad in 2018/19. Plus 3rd school for him? Bench help maybe, with some scout team contributions and some insurance for one season.

I simply cannot imagine any player transferring to be "Bench help maybe, with some scout team contributions...". If they are transferring, it is because they want to PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what they all want. Then there is reality. A fair amount of time they don't get the minutes they expected, and after seeing the talent they are joining, they know why. For every Sanford or Sibert, there is a Bass or Cordeiro.

With our current roster, and assuming no injuries and a little luck we can win 8 again. Wooohooo. We don't need no bigs!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, we need bigs that can defend bigs and rebound. It doesn't matter what type of offense they play, small or back to the basket, its about defending true bigs and rebounding. That's what Nova did with their bigs. They played small offensively but both could guard big and rebound.

I agree. Our court savvy went up six clicks when when we add Cohill, Toppin, Jehry. DD is out of the mix. He did some good things, but was generally not a leader. Williams and Sam were cancerous. We are going to play quicker because of the added court sense, and the loss of those didn't have it.

I did not say we don't need a big to win the A10. But we don't need one to be a whole lot better than last season. We won 14 games under an umbrella of turmoil.

While every team would love to have good bigs, it's a want and not a need to compete at the top of the A-10.

Quickness trumps bigs in the college game.

Because there's no 3-second defense rule like the NBA, it's not that difficult to make it tough on bigs in college. If a team with a good big also has great shooters, that's a different story. Usually, only the elite national contenders have that.

To win the National Title, yes you need good bigs. To win big in the A-10, you don't need it.

For those hoping to land a big-time prospect with beef ... when's the last time UD landed such a player?

Finn and Big Steve were projects from Day 1 and Keith W. was a walk-on. Unless I'm drawing a total blank on someone, was the last good big we recruited in the '60's?

Look we don't have to have a big in the mold of Sean Finn. We need people with some size and versatility that can rebound, defend and play within the arc.

Saying Villanova, Rockets or Warriors play positionless basketball doesn't mean Cohill can defend St. Louis's incoming 6'8 4 star power forward who had an offer from Kansas.

Open question whether Obi or Frankie can do that or whether they want to as players spend their time in the paint most of the game.

Just in case this needs to be said...

Would I love to have a mobile big who can defend? Absolutely! But I prefer guards that can play vs. another Jordan Pierce.

Chances are decent we don't have anybody who can guard a 6'8" power forward good enough to go to Kansas and won't when the season starts either.

But, CAG has shown he's not against going to a zone. So maybe no one man has that responsibility in the first place.

But let's say the worst case scenario happens and a guy like Cohill is asked to guard him and the PF is just too big and strong for Cohill. Then it's on Cohill to make sure his quickness and ball handling are a mismatch at the other end.

I see teams taking out decent bigs to match up better with smaller, quicker teams all the time. The key is that we need to be good enough offensively to dictate that other teams have to match up to us and our strengths.

As it stands now, I think we have a lot riding on Obi's defense so that we don't have to go to zone all the time. But even playing man, without the 3-second defense rule, you can sag and help quite a bit. And if you have quickness, recovery out to shooters is that much easier.

I watched a really good LSU team with both Shaq and Stanley Roberts lose to a team that played a 6'6" center. Yes, Chris Jackson went for 41 because of all the collapsing down low, but LSU still lost. (Negative 5 points for the first poster that says it's because Dale Brown was their coach.)

Your argument that UD has not had good bigs does not match well with UDs overall record in the A10. With 2-3 exception periods, UD has been in the middle of the pack. During one of those periods Sean Finn was pretty good.

I can name a lot of top A10 teams during its history that had very good bigs. I think the lack of talented big men has hurt UD a lot in the past.

You can win without good bigs, but it is a lot harder and you have to have a lot of interchangeable talented positions.

At this point Josh Cunningham is the only guy on the roster who can play around the basket primarily

It doesn't have to be a James Cripe or a Pierce just because they're near 7 footers. Height doesn't matter as much to me as the ability to play in the post. Pollard, Perryman, Josh weren't the biggest guys but could play around the basket

You can absolutely win with your biggest guy on the court being Kendall Pollard but that doesn't mean you can stick Luke Fabrizius in the post and expect to have any success

I've seen no indication that Frankie or Obi are anything other than perimeter oriented combo forwards. You can get away with using them as a small ball center some of the time but there's teams in the A10 that won't work against

There's more quality bigs in the A10 coming in and in the league right now than most people I think realize

So we just score before anyone has time to get under the basket. Shot clock never goes under 25.

I can name a lot of top A10 teams during its history that had very good bigs. I think the lack of talented big men has hurt UD a lot in the past.

You can win without good bigs, but it is a lot harder and you have to have a lot of interchangeable talented positions.
Yep and your last sentence literally mirrors a team like Villonova who has been referenced or a team like even Temple back in the day. The thing about those teams compared to UD is those guys are long and have great strength. They're in that 6'5"-6'7" range but those guys got ass on them and shoulders. They can get shots off anytime with their strength along with their athletic ability, and, as you mention, can defend multiple positions.

UD does not get those types of players very often. I'd say that Landers fits into that role and as a 6'4"-6'5" guy he's become/is becoming a much better shooter and can guard multiple positions..

Finn and Big Steve were projects from Day 1 and Keith W. was a walk-on. Unless I'm drawing a total blank on someone, was the last good big we recruited in the '60's?
Not quite 50 years, but BIGs sure haven’t been breaking-down the door to come here. Ashman was the 2nd highest rated HS BIG in Ohio in 1996 (behind Collier). Hare was pretty highly-rated (IIRC) coming out of HS in 1991. McCracken in ‘86. Wells in ‘76. But yeah, your point is well-taken. If you have to go back 22 years to find a 4-star BIG commit to your program out of HS, then you’re striking out more than you’re hitting home runs.

Grab him fast - all the draft prospects for Nevada are coming back, plus a stud freshman and incoming transfers. They are a top 5 - 10 team.

He would have to sit out a year! If he was a grad transfer and could play right away he would be a good addition because he could give Josh some rest at the center position.

Anthony Grant and his staff are busy recruiting bigs as a priority for when Josh graduates.

reading the Lincoln paper it seems like he was unhappy about playing time. Could be walking into a good situation here

The last day to register for fall classes is August 21. Dayton has two open scholarships. It is hard for me to believe that Anthony Grant would not take advantage of the resources (scholarships) available to him. If he has an unsuccessful season then he cannot say that the administration did not support him fully; afterall he didn’t even use what was provided.

In the business world you will be given headcount. If you don’t fill these positions then you cannot cry that you did not have enough people to grt the job done; afterall you didn’t even use what was offered. Next year, that headcount will be taken from you.

I see no indication that Grant would say that "the administration did not support him fully," or would "cry that he did not have enough people to get the job done." Don't know why you would even bring that up. I'm sure if there were grad transfers out there that the coaching staff felt would help the team they would have gone after them. They could have gone after some players we don't even know about and simply failed to land them.

I venture to say that you will never hear Anthony Grant say the administration didn't fully support him or anything else that sounds negative about The University of Dayton.

Anthony is not one to make excuses about anything. He knows what he as to accomplish and he will make sure he does that. Failure is not in Anthony's vocabulary. After all, he is a Flyer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It only takes five players in basketball, or probably eight. To fill the bench with guys who cannot and will not play at a high level is a waste of money and time. No different than in business, you wait until you can find the right person, even if that takes months.

Why not both? This guy would be a 4th year junior when he is eligible and given past history it's going to take time for a true freshman big to physically develop in order to contribute.

Emmanuel Tshimanga is coming in for an official visit. I jumped to a conclusion that he was a brother of Jordy when I saw the French on his twitter. I knew Jordy was from Montreal. Jordy does have two siblings but none named Emmanuel. Perhaps another relative.

Any notion as to when Emmanuel’s visit will be?

Nope, I would think it's probably this week if Jordy is coming too... Got to get him (Jordy) into school/program as quickly as possible (if he commits/signs)
