Best game of the season was at Grand Canyon

We seem to be taking WAC players that played well against us, that impressed the coaching.

Fills a Guard spot, with good size and experience at that. I think it's a good pickup.

Dropped 18 on us in Vegas.

Agreed. Probably a strong net positive for the Tezeno hole he's filling.

One year to play. Good size. Seems like a solid pick up, although playing time and stats dropped off some from his first three years.

Who is our back up PG next season?

Do ya'll think that our new basketball facilities had anything to do with the WAC players committing to SFA?

Good point. I was wondering the same thing.

Also, it appears that the SFA coaching staff is grabbing players from the portal much earlier this year than in the past couple of years. Reaction speed to players entering the portal may have something to do with it, too. Lessons learned?

And the coaches have seen these players in action up front in game time, and like what they see, in a player they can work with and who can contribute.

Agreed. Having played against them eliminates much of the guess work in evaluating players via video clips, word of mouth with other coaches, etc. "A player they can work with." I like that!

I'm placing the following in several places here on The Sawmill so that everyone sees it and is aware of its message. I feel that it's that important.

________________


I recently joined the Sawmill6thMan collective. This is an NIL collective that financially supports the SFA Jacks MBB players. I encourage other Jack fans to join, too. Monthly memberships are available for as little as $10 per month, and I'm sure they'll gladly accept one-time donations. 100% of the money goes directly to the athletes!! This organization is not and cannot (by NCAA rules) connected to SFASU. It is administered by SFA alums, most of whom are local businessmen.

For details, go over the SFA NIL thread in the General Discussion Forum.

We say that we want to compete with the Big Boys to get the best players to come here, so we need to act like it! Please consider joining.

So if we have 2 spots left, what do we expect them to be filled with?

A true PG and maybe another center?

If we're going to have both Nana/Beaubrun back...along with the Forwards we just added, I'd go after 2 guards. A PG and another SG.

Stone has a good opportunity to fit in this system. If you start him next to Nana as an example, you already have a bigger lineup than we've had (we won the league with Kensmil & Solomon starting at 6'7).

That gives you a lot of room to play with different lineups. Either 3 guards, or going bigger with Hall + 2 guards. Beaubrun/Stone/Hall would be a ridiculous lineup to have to deal with in the paint.

Either way...with how Keller substitutes, a starting 5 isn't a big topic for me any longer.

Got to have a center IMHO

As long as they can get some offensive production inside, that could work.

This much length could give us a lot of lineup options. And with both Nana and Southwick able to make a 3, forces teams to follow them everywhere.

I'd be cool with 2 more guards but with the injury risk to the bigs(and lack of a lot of offensive production) I wouldn't mind a guard and center.

AJ's former teammate that we offered last year if I remember correctly.

Yeah. He was actually the hotter recruit.

Ya. Starting to figure out that, Keller has about 14 different lineups he might run with, (exaggerating there). But for real, I see him running with AJ and Jossell rotating at PG. The rest is just gumbo. You could go with REALLY NASTY defensive lineup like, AJ, Hayman, Staine, Hall and Beaubrun. With a little bit of development this off season, Jalil could be a net asset on defense.

I just can't see Jossell running the point except out of necessity due to injuries. He's a shooter, not a floor general. IMO, we need another true PG, along with another big. That would be my wish list for the two remaining slots.

Agreed. He's done it though, for 4-5 minute stretches with a little help from Roti.

The biggest challenge with not having a 2nd point guard who's capable of playing 20 minutes a game to backup Cajuste is that you're one injury away from a derailed season.

Jacks need to sign another point guard. I wish they could get Nate Calmese from Lamar. Stud Freshman. Southland Conference Freshman of the Year. Averaged 17 points per game.

I'd be wary of any team taking a single player off that roster without knowing who was involved in what.

Sucks for the kids who minded their business but I don't think NMSU current or former employees will be particularly forthcoming in time to do proper vetting.

SFA should also be attractive to an elite guard with the need on our roster.

Absolutely agree. SFA should be attractive to a top guard.

I would settle for a guard that averages a triple double a game. Post only needs to average 20 and 12 along with lots of blocked shots. Shouldn't be a problem. Lol
