Man that was hilarious...I actually got a few PM's from him on the subject. Funniest stuff I've ever seen on this board. Boy were both of them out of touch with reality.

I'd go:

G Gilliam
G Talley
G Raffa
F Clarke


Not sure who the 5th would be. Don't think it's Garvey.
Add Garvey and that team wins the AE.

I'm not sure what was funnier - this, or Greer Wright's family/entourage/whatever yelling for him to "just get [his]" in the Bing-BU game at Agganis two years ago where BU absolutely beat the bag out of the Bearcats.

Actually, Gilliam cherry-picking on possessions where the shot hadn't even gone up yet is still the best thing ever.

That is all Wright was ever about.

True.

But the best part about that specific incident is how obvious it was. IIRC it was during a timeout in the second half, it was pretty quiet in the arena (when the home team is up by that much I think the fans get bored, there's no tension), and you could hear the people yelling to Wright to "just get [his]" so clearly. I was sitting across from the visitors' bench at the press table and you could hear it clear as day.

I mean, the game was over, there was no way in hell that Bing was ever going to come back from that deficit, and I can't remember but I think Bing might have already announced that they would be skipping the tournament that year. If there's ever a time where it's forgivable to try and pad your own numbers, that would probably be the time. But it was unreal to hear it out loud like that.

A little birdie told me his dad was in Randy's ear a lot, too.

Re: Outbound Transfers Catch-All Thread

I've always been curious why Wright came back to Bing- was it because he was a JUCO previously and was stuck? Nothing against Bing, but he would have had options to be at higher schools, and it didn't seem like he was too in to Bing anyways.

Speaking of Gilliam, another funny observation. When UMBC was on defense, he would routinely head up court just as the opposition released a shot and before his team has even secured the rebound. He wanted to be hit on the long outlet pass for easy buckets. In one game in particular against UA at SEFCU 3 or 4 times UMBC was caught in a 4 on 5 situation because he was doing this. Does anyone else remember this?

Man, that kid was bad news and about as anti-team player as I've ever seen in this league. If you remember, he was a one time UA recruit but we cut bait. I know his dad and Gilliam were butt heart over it (PM's to me).

He only had one year of eligibility left and was denied a waiver to play right away without sitting out a year. UConn and Cincinnati (among others) were apparently interested but once he was denied the waiver the interest pretty much dried up.

Wright is now playing in Kazakhstan.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was talking about - that's what cherry-picking is (in case it wasn't clear).

Yeah, I thought that's what you were saying but wasn't certain. Not sure I've ever seen anything like it...it was lots of fun. Sure enough he got his but the team got their clock cleaned if memory serves.
