BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- It’s the middle of May and the 2021-2022 college hoops season seems like it is off in the far, distant future, but in reality it is only six months away. Hoops news is a bit hard to come by these day, but “FTS” has scoured the intrawebs to dig up some relevant and not-so-relevant linkage.

Goodman is right...with over 1,000 hoopsters still in the Transfer Portal, it is way too freakin’ early to project anything.
