South Florida grad transfer Troy Holston has committed to St. Joe's, per a source. Immediately eligible. Should be Hawks' replacement for Nick Robinson.

4-10 has especially declined. 11-14, only a little (of course, when you’re already at the bottom, it’s hard to go down). 1-3 have declined a bit, but are still competitive. But having the #4 in triple digits? Yikes!

Several writers/sites making A10 predictions for this year in the below link.

I think we were picked 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 10, and 10.

The picks are not that surprising.

I think most of us think we know better. The potential is there for us to be better at almost every position 1- 9. But will it materialize and is it enough better? We have the whole ooc to get better and be ready for the A10. Nobody on the outside is going to factor that much improvement in. I see us fighting for 3 to 5.

Duquesne freshman Sincere Carry looks like the best freshman in the Atlantic 10. 12.2 PPG, 5.8 APG, 4.1 RPG, 2.8 SPG. Kid is a stud.

Those numbers are impressive. I'll take Obi all day though.

I went to the DUQ vs. GW game over the weekend. Sincere Carry is very good. He is a great passer, drives to the hoop well, and he has an outside shot. He still needs to work on the decision making. Some of his passes are we a little reckless, but other real quick touch passes got DUQ easy points and helped them build an early lead. He is both creative and confident.

At one point GW cut the Duquesne lead to 3 and Sincere Carry, despite some good defense from GW, took his time and calmly sank a shot to quiet the crowd. I don't know every freshman in the A-10, but Jon Rothstein might be right.

I’ll give you that Carry is a he!uva player, who’ll give our backcourt a really tough matchup. But between him and Obi, I’ll take Obi because (to paraphrase John Wooden) you can’t coach a guy to be tall.

I am wondering if the rise of VCU has increased the pressure on Richmond to step it up. Local competition always seems like a good thing to me, local competition can bring a lot of pressure to keep up with your neighbors.

I have a friend at the gym down here who is a long time Richmond alum and supporter. He said that last year Mooney was toast except he pulled out some rabbits at year end. He says this year he is done.

IIRC, Mooney has a sizeable buyout, I get the sense he would have been fired several years ago if not for that buyout/remaining contract.

Mooney was hot there for a while a few years ago.

IINM, he was offered an ACC hc job, Wake Forest? in 2013?, which he turned down.

In hindsight, he should have taken the job, as that was his opportunity to move up to the p5 level.

Showing loyalty to UR like that may also explain how he has been able to hold on for this long, the UR administration gave him around a 10 year contract extension after that I think.

There's some deep, deep pockets at Richmond. They've got a 2 billion dollar endowment and they're plugged into some old tobacco money

Mooney signed a 10 year extension in 2011 thru 2021 after turning down the GT job.

And then GT proceeded to hire BG. I did not remember that.

Mooney through the years also apparently turned down BC, Seton Hall, and Miami.

Very hard to recruit to Richmond. It is an upper crust little school that will make some prospects feel uncomfortable. Then you add in their close by neighbors, VCU and UVA, and Mooney struggles. The school is similar to the Davidson situation, but they do not have Mckillop or the Stephen Curry factor.

A10 board is apparently saying that UR will owe Mooney $3.6 million if they fire him this year.

Looks like it will be a case of “put up or shut up” if the Richmond supporters want Mooney gone. That’s a fairly big nut to crack for a program with somewhat limited resources.

There is a lot irony here IMO...CM was what all the mid-major schools want: a successful hc who spurns all the p5/high-major offers and stays put...except this time, after he cashed in with the big, long-term contract from UR, he then hits the skids, and now all the UR fans rightfully want him to hit the bricks.

He was the Mark Few of Richmond in 2011.

In the 2011 offseason, he was hot, coming off of back-to-back ncaat appearances, one of which was a Sweet 16 in 2011, the other a round of 64 appearance in 2010.

He turned down multiple p5/high-major offers.

Sometimes things do not work out despite all signs indicating that they will work out.

There is no such thing as a sure thing.

If the "billboard fans" don't step up, they can dip into their 2+ billion dollar endowment.

Richmond has a bunch of money and a bunch of wealthy supporters. Basketball does not have a high priority there, so we will see.

Surprised this hasn't been posted. 34 years of College, down the drain.

It is being discussed on the "2019 Coaching Carousel" thread.

I wonder if St. Joe will get all the flak UD received when they parted ways with Donoher in 1989. The talk then was that all the bad press UD got by firing a "legend" severely limited the pool of candidates willing to take the UD job.

Brent Mussberger had a radio show back then and spent a good chunk of it railing at the UD administration for firing Donoher. I remember him starting off saying their memories were short and recalled the ‘84 and ‘85 back-to-back NCAA runs and Elite 8. It also came just a season or two after Donoher flirted with an offer to coach Navy. I think he had a son at Annapolis at the time. In retrospect, he might have been a perfect fit there.

UMass hc McCall fires all 3 of his assistant coaches. He must be feeling some heat I guess.

Makes you wonder who would want to be an assistant in that program, if they are going to fire their head coach next year anyway. And, if McCall doesn’t get better results next year, I would think he’d be gone.

Huggy Bear wanted the job. At the time Huggins was at Akron and asked Gerry Faust, Akron football coach, for a recommendation. Faust told him he couldn't do so.
