2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

Let's talk about how awesome we are!

We return 4 out of 5 starters.

Top scorer from this year will only be a sophomore.

Ethan O'Day is the #1 recruit in the country!

Becker now has the confidence and the clout that comes with winning a conference tournament and a game in the NCAAs.

Brian Voelkel has another year to improve on his biceps.

What else is making you excited about UVM Men's basketball!?

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

Well, Coach Becker was just interviewed on the news, and said that he was giving the guys 2 or 3 weeks off but then it's back to work for next season. He's excited. So we can be, too. Maybe it's not too early!

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

i agree with that. very little weaknesses going into next year. we dont have a third string pg. We need O'day to fill in for glass and be the freshmen that outplayed highmajor talents in high school. we need more depth down low. can Mckeany gives us a few good minutes a night?

thats it. it will be interesting to see what we do with that scholly open. Rugg or some freshmen.
i could see santo leaving for more playing time which means we could get both. rugg a scholly and some freshmen

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

I think Sandro has solidified his spot as the teams PG. I wasn't convinced headed into the season and still wasn't convinced about 10 games into the season- but something clicked and Sandro was terrific the rest of the way. He played so well down the stretch and I am completely sold on him handling PG duties.


The biggest thing to look out for next year is the back court. We will have 5 guards that all get minutes. You have to imagine there will be plenty of people in Four's ear this off-season- I imagine a lot of people will want to talk to the only player in the NCAA that led his team on scoring from the bench. I obviously hope nobody leaves but you never know. Have to imagine reports on places like Recruit Scoop for 2012 guards has only been insurance, can't imagine we'd add a 6th guard to next years squad.


Bald seemed like he was willing to accept his role this year which is good. I don't think we'll go back to the Bald 30+ min again. I think the coaching staff did a great job handling the situation and easing him into a reduced role but still allowing him to start. Smart.


Really hope this team stays intact, because it could continue to be special.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

hoopcat we have had interest in a couple guards but they have all been pg's i believe. we only have 2 pg's on our roster. i think you would want 3. i'm ok with spike and that kid from ct mcloughlin??? coming in. i just hope they would be ok with a chance to be recruited over. i think we would still try to get a top tier pg in 2013. we have two juniors pg's next year. we need to start grooming a future starter soon

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

I'd like to see Big Ben have a big year next season. He's had some unfortunate set backs and injuries- really hoping for a healthy senior year for him and giving us quality minutes in the paint.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

I don't think O'Day replaces Matt Glass. My understanding of O'Day is that he is a traditional back to the basket post player. He does not have much of an outside shot. As you know, Glass mostly played on the perimeter and did lots of damage from deep and in the mid-range. I'm not sold McKeaney will see minutes next year. He just plays soft out there and if O'Day is as advertised he will be a rotation player for the post replacing Bergman's minutes not Glass'. We still have Apfeld and Crenca to rotate down low as well. I too hope Santo stays because I really do think he can be a valuable all purpose player for this team. I also think alot will depend on how Rusin fits into the equation. He will need to define his role and play within the system which often can be difficult for a guy coming off of a year on the bench.

Next year will be harder for Becker. He came into this season flying under the radar. Many people doubted his abilities to lead this team and after a 5 game losing streak in November/December I imagine opposing coaches and players underestimated this team. Next year we will get everyone's best shot and the expectations will be much higher for Becker.

I'd like to see guards added to 2013 class- I don't think there's enough minutes for 6 guards next season, and the coaching staff is clearly committed to playing Elbaum. Rusin didn't transfer to not play.

If a guard is added for 2012, I just don't see how they see the court next year.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

Santo definitely stays- where would he transfer to first? Second, the kid definitely has ability and will be solid rotation guy.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

I'm curious to see if the coaching staff will try playing Voelkel at the 4 any next year to get more perimeter threats on the floor.

In AE play and some OOC games against teams like Dartmouth I think they definitely can go small.

Pretty amazing Voelkel, Sandro, Apfeld, and Four were all sophomores and freshman this year.

Re: 2012-2013 Vermont Catamount Thread!

i see o'day replacing matt in minutes and production not in style of play. O'day will average a lot more minutes than pat did this year. O'day is def a traditional post player. He will get different stats for UVM but same amount of production. I think he is pretty good off the pick n roll though. Apfeld i think can turn into a pick n pop guy. He hit a crazy % of his outside shots this year. theres no reason for him not to shoot more. I like the idea of going with two guys who can score down low.....think fjeld and blakely and not just 1. we dont need a pick n pop pf. i would rather have a pf who block shots and score down low.

mckeany will have to play some games. he will prolly play less minutes than bergman but you have to use more than 4 guys down low in some games. We could use voelkel at the 4 instead for a little bit and it may be a better option. you would think with voelkel at the 4 it would open things up more for cutters.
