Re: Around the League

In college basketball the only term I hate more then mid-major, is recruited over. It has to have been coined by player and/or their parents. A coaches continued employment and perhaps advancement up the program ladder is predicated upon wins. You bring in the best players you can, and if a newcomer displaces a rotation player, that's life. That said, you bring in the best players for the openings you have not ones you'll create. Once the LOI is signed, the NCAA should require that the scholarship automatically rolls over for the four years of playing time. A coach should give the player an honest assessment of his prospects for playing time and let the player decide to stay or go elsewhere.

Fordham has 4 year scholarship guarantees as long as the student-athlete remains in good standing, i.e., meets academic and athletic obligations. Despite that, guys at Fordham get run off. Coaches find ways to push players out, as most guys won't stay where they are clearly not wanted.

Ace, I don't doubt that runoffs occur at schools where the four scholarship is guaranteed. For that I blame the AD and university leadership for allowing it to occur. Players want to play, but some might not mind being the 11-13 guy occupying the bench, because they like their teammates. the girlfriend is there, family is close by, or perish the thought, the academic programs.Running off players is easier for a blueblood program, but many other programs will incur the wrath of high school and AAU coaches in doing it. If the player wants to transfer fine, but being forced against your wishes is a no-no. Sooner probably than later, some kid forced out will sue the coach and the university.

I'm surprised this hasn't happened as a regular course of action. I suspect the player probably doesn't want to kill his chances somewhere else by being labeled.

We had a guy occupy a basketball scholarship for an entire season even though he no longer played basketball. Basically the coach did not want him anymore, but the kid was on a 4 year scholarship, so he spent the year as a regular student and the team went on with 12 scholarship players.

I think that was handled in an ok manner, as the guarantee is of a scholarship, not of being on the team.

Re: Around the League

Dayton has received a commitment for 2020 from Lukas Frazier, a 6'3" SG out of Lake Catholic HS in Mentor, Ohio.He had offers from schools in the MAC, Fl Gulf Coast, Northern Kentucky and Wright State. He's a little on the thin side, so UD will be looking to its conference brethren to import some beef on weck from upstate NY, cheesesteaks from Philly, southern barbecue, and NYC pizza.

Re: Around the League

Hawks pick up a transfer from Gonzaga, 6'-6" PG Greg Foster, Jr., son of former NBA player and current Atlanta Hawks assistant Greg Foster. The elder foster served on the Sixers' staff with Lange. He's a sit one, play three transfer.

Sounds like a good get!

No cheesesteaks for Dayton. We've all heard that excuse before.

Re: Around the League

I have fond memories of Franklin Street gym. As a freshman, I sneaked into a practice and quietly sat on the wood bleacher. Coach JD Barnett peered over at me and he seemed fine with my visit. Well, fine until a freshman named Phil Stinnie made a mistake and then he went ballistic on Phil and then he turned to me. JD probably let me have 30 f-bombs in the span of 5 seconds before kicking me out of his practice. That same year Franklin Street hosted a intra-squad scrimmage for the team. JD walked over to me and said, when are you coming to your next practice? he then smiled. That is about the nicest you will see JD Barnett. Helluva a coach but not the most cordial person to say the least. JD left after my freshman year at VCU but not before he gave my Rams a top 10 team. They beat Jim Calhoun's Northeastern squad who was led by Reggie Lewis. Anyway, I have many Franklin Street gym stories especially due to the fact that I took mass communication classes in the basement.

PS-The article is behind a paywall.

Re: Around the League

From the article for our Rhody friends.......

The original Franklin Street Gym opened in the early 1950s as the home of the Richmond Professional Institute, then known as the Green Devils. It seated roughly 500 — a capacity that was, by all accounts, more than enough to satisfy local demand. Interest in the program was so low even within the school that in 1963-64, when the Virginia General Assembly split RPI out of the Colleges of William & Mary, and RPI was allowed to choose a new mascot, oversight was sparse enough that longtime athletic director Ed Allen was able to change the mascot in homage to his beloved alma mater — the Rhode Island Rams — and no one really batted an eye.
