That’s a good roster. That Webley news is kind of frightening. Usually a 6’10” 250 guy in this league is here because he has the mobility of Frankenstein. Otherwise he’s playing higher.

Very interesting podcast that Gal was on.

One thing that really stood out. Freshman Thomas Webley 6’10 250 ( New Zealand) will be the starting center. Says he’s the highest level recruit he has had. Potential player of the year type of guy. Says Stafl will possibly play the 4 or sub in for Webley.

He also joked that carter was awarded a 6th year of eligibility. He said he might be the first player that gets a 7th year ( since this year doesn’t count against eligibility).


Sounds like starters are:

Carter
Flowers
Marks
Williams
Webley

probably first off bench
Mitchell
Stafl
Dombek

next
Henry
Dunne

next
gray
Mcclain

last
Sipkovsky
Great info in that podcast. A couple things that stood out:

Last year coach said Flowers was by far the best recruit he has had in his tenure with Hartford. This year he is saying its Webely and that he was being recruited by major programs. Seeing these two play together for the next few years will be fun. A front court the size of Webley, Stafl and Marks is pretty big. And all have offensive skill. Coach even mentioned in the podcast Marks getting time at the 2 this year.

Coach mentions the team is very deep this year and his 6-10 guys on the depth chart would have started for him in his first 5 years. He also said he feels the program had turned a corner in his 8th year.

If Traci Carter wants to come back for another year next year, he will be able to. With his leadership qualities, we would be lucky to have him for 3 full years. That's quite a difference from the "one and done" we were expecting.

He also mentioned he has no idea how his team will play together until the first game of the season because there are no scrimmages.

It really was a lot of interesting info....even talking about recruiting as he has 1 commitment for next year but the core of this team will be here for a while As this is a very young team ( other than Carter Of course).

so true....not much video on him....I found highlights from one game here. Granted I can’t say the defense against him seemed to be too difficult.


here is one from 2018

In today’s podcast Gal said:

Carter is the best defensive guard he has ever had.

Williams might be the best defensive wing he has had.

talked about Flowers and Marks being a high level.

Wembley better than they even thought he was.

Dombeck very skilled.

deep 10 man rotation.
