Re: 2019-2020 George Washington Colonials

Christian is a mover and a shaker. A few months ago, Siena folk thought the guy walked on water; now, though, they consider him a scummy carpetbagger (they also can’t fathom JC taking the GW job, which many there consider inferior or, at best, lateral to SC).

From the outside, he seems like a really good evaluator of players’ ability, yet makes no bones about climbing the D1 ladder. Being a DMV guy probably accelerated the anticipated departure from Loudenville, but any success JC has with GW will probably have him
glancing pretty quickly at Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia, etc. (should the jobs open up).

However he does, it’s more than likely that GW will play a really fun brand of up tempo ball once his recruits make up the roster.

Agree that his time in Foggy Bottom could be limited but hopefully he sticks around long enough to bring us back from irrelevancy. The whole Lonergan saga and the decisions made by our former AD left the program a shell of its former self.

Re: 2019-2020 George Washington Colonials

A bit odd, especially considering his game seems perfectly matched to Christian's system (steal, run, shoot 3s). I'm guessing he needed to get away from the DMV.

Havoc comes to the DMV. He needs to rename it. Maybe Gridlock.

He’s called it “Mayhem” (lame) at MSM and Siena.

Re: 2019-2020 George Washington Colonials

Bit of a head-scratcher as he averaged 1 & 1 in 8 games each of his two years at Mount St Mary's. The first year was under Christian. Sit one, play two 6-10 center from DC's Sidwell.

Ehhhh... stranger things have worked out. Christian must like the kid. Maybe he's had injury issues?

Anyhow, most coaches don't play 13 guys, so if Stallings is a good kid, teammate, and student, then a program can do a lot worse with a 6'10" kid at or near the end of the bench. Five fouls and scout team size.
