McNeese playing Bama and Miss State next season I don't want to hear that no big schools want play SFA.
Ehhh. I bet some schools will slowly figure out McNeese with time. Thinking it may be a one off thing. If they do great again, it'll be harder as time goes on.
McNeese played a Charmin soft schedule last year and were exposed in the tournament.

Teams played include:
College of Biblical Studies
Champion Christian
LeTourneau
Mississippi University for Women
Along with a WEAK SLC schedule

Wade is a good coach, and with the NIL in place, I have no doubt he will be able to recruit some good talent to Lake Charles, but they were extremely overrated last year.


They got picked apart by Gonzaga. Only a few quality wins (VCU, ULL, Michigan). Like you said , exposed.

Usually I would say Michigan is a good win. Last season they were 8-24. That puts a damper on it for me.

Coach needs to hurry up and start making moves. This is taking way too long!

Keller said he wanted to be sure to get the right guys this time. He's definitely taking a different approach from last year, when he had all of the players chosen and signed before the WD-40 was dry on the portal door hinges.

I'm curious what Keller's opinion on the Southland is and if he'd want to make that change this season or next.

I talked to Keller at the reception. He seemed to be VERY OPTIMISTIC about signing a couple of bigs, that will make an immediate impact.

Heard there was some dude named Kavin Gensmil we're targeting who is totally unrelated to any former players we might have had.

A Mo Bamba, Flo Thamba type situation.

I'm also excited about Womas Thalkup and JT Molyfield. I heard we may also get that Hevon Karris kid.

I like the sound of that! Make it happen, Coach K.

Just heard they are in contact with some kid named Pacob Jarker. Heard he has a lot of flowing hair.

McNeese is bringing in a ton of talent this year. Will be better than last year.

Is it the Will Wade name that's bringing them? They can't be loaded with NIL?

I think that's largely the case. His name & connections.

wonder if these guys are still on the radar? Any news about who we're after? Also will the conference change effect recruiting?

That got my hoops blood flowing good. Thanks, N-look.

And I agree. I sure hope Keller can land a couple of athletic bigs. This waiting is killing me, as it always does this time of the year.

Played in 32 of the 33 games with 10 starts, averaging 14.9 minutes per game. Shot .381 on the season, .279 on 61 threes, and .657 from the FT line. Averaged 3.9 rebounds and 4.3 points per game.

I am underwhelmed.

I'm excited. That kind of height doesn't grow on trees. Two years of eligibility remaining. He'll help fill a big need. Keller and the coaches obviously think he's got an upside. They'll put him in the weight room to bulk up more, for sure. Only 210 pounds.

Now we need one more...

EDIT: Another source says he's 225 pounds. Better.

Body-wise, he seems to be similar to Nana. Also, he apparently was given the green light at UCF to shoot threes. Personally, I hope Keller limits that here. We already have a big that does that, too much, IMO.

Honestly, I disagree wholeheartedly. Let the guy go to his full potential. If you start limiting various things, he won't perform as well as he can. If the guy has an open look and he has some success taking a three, go for it. Sure, we have a Nana for that, but having two Nanas opens up the court way more if both are there. Since some free points.

100%. Nana shouldn't be shooting threes. Unless we are up by 30 with 4 minutes left.

Not to belabor the point, but we had already signed two very good guards to (among other things) shoot threes. I'm assuming we didn't sign a 6'11" guy for the purpose of shooting threes.

As big as he is, with as good of a touch as he has, it should be "buffet time" every night in the SLC.

Really like the big that the Jacks picked up today. Lots of length on him and moves really well for his size. Looks like he has a lot of upside. Like that he played in the Big 12. Need to pick up another point guard and the Jacks will be set.
