Yeah, I wasn't trying to imply anything nefarious like we were going to run them off or anything. More looking at it from the perspective that sometimes walk-ons decide to move on from basketball because it's a time commitment, need to focus on academic and post-graduate pursuits, etc. And we aren't usually privy to those kinds of decisions until well after they're made (Summer Roster Release Date!). Add in the fact that we're carrying a lot of guys (which is normal for some D-1 schools, but not typically for UVM), and I'm just curious if they'll be in the fold or not.I don't see why they wouldn't. Garrison is a senior he might as well stick around. Adiang is local, and there's another reason to keeping him around too (his brother even if he probably goes to a Power 5 at first, you want to ensure that relationship doesn't sour in any way, because well, guys transfer). Maybe someone has to sit out on travel or there's a healthy scratch situation, but it's just for a year. I don't anticipate the entire rising true senior class to stay and use these blanket extra years for various reasons highlighted before for both reasons financial and personal. So they could potentially have 19 guys this season if they're using their full true scholarship allotment, and as low as 8 guys total next season. As logistically cramped as the benches are at Patrick, they'll figure something out.
They're good guys, they work hard. I'm sure they're definitely welcome back.
