If everybody here follows Rothstein on Twitter, I will stop, but for now here is an update from him on URI's OOC schedule.

Rhode Island's non-conference schedule for 19-20:

Home: Alabama, Providence, Western Kentucky
Away: at Maryland, at West Virginia
MTE: Two high-major games

David Cox is giving his team a chance to make the NCAA Tournament; a MUST if you're not in a power conference.

UMass gets a commitment from 2019 guard Sean East. Fordham had recently offered East, too.

That's six members of the 2019 class for FJK. Usually, that's a sure-fire way to continue having big roster turnover every April.

The NCAA allows, but does not require, 4 year scholarship agreements. Fordham grants them. The Big 10 guarantees them.

Despite that, kids still get pushed out. We have had at least one instance under Neubauer where we were at 12 scholarships b/c one kid was enrolled and on scholarship, but not playing b/c Neubauer no longer wanted him on the team.
Well, it looks like we have a grad transfer player that the NCAA ruled permanently ineligible and we are still providing a scholarship next season and not just a scholarship one of the thirteen basketball scholarships...

Chasing Ghosts: John Calipari Left, and UMass Basketball Died


Throughout the offseason, ESPN will take a closer look at the programs that have faced the challenge of moving on from a single historically revered coach, evaluating the successes and failures along the way.

This week, the "Chasing Ghosts" series continues with the UMass Minutemen, a perennial top-25 team in the '90s that faded from the scene soon after John Calipari led the program to the Final Four.

Regarding above ESPN article/\

OMG, Doing it again, but the truth is the bb folks are a solid core, vocal and think they should be driving the bus, but really - we have not been in the A10 Championship game since Bruiser did it and they fired him.

UMass has a HUGE band wagon following and if BB picks up it will be crazy. The sad part is this vocal bb group do not show it with their cash based on a recent fund raising events. The band wagon effect shows as hockey was #1 , but the difference in BB is sad. To be fair, a lot of donations are made to the all sports Minutemen Club.

1. Hockey $ 55,892.16
2. Gridiron $ 53,712.58
....
7. Court Club $ 12,063.06

You're playing Tenn and Florida State this year, and next.
