NB. There was a blurb in this morning's Philadelphia Inquirer stating that Eric Klimewski is the hardest working player in South Jersey and expected to be a force in his high school's district playoffs. It also featured is photo. He is a moose.

Thanks, 68.  "He's leading SJ in scoring with a 25.1 average."


List of schools joining us in offering 2015 C, Tony Lewis:

Seems like odd company for us.

Same kind of kid we were recruiting before scholarships - maybe he has a huge upside and is very athletic, but on the surface it sounds like another from the skinny kids who can shoot pipeline.....

Wish I could argue otherwise, seen. No response from the first three offered, on to Plan B, I guess, a young man with no other reported offers.

I haven't seen him play live yet but expect to see him this summer. His high school team, LaSalle College High School did make it to the PIAA class AAAA finals this past season, I think he had 8 or 10 points but they lost to an undefeated team. He also plays for the Jersey Shore Warriors the same team that one of this years recruits, Eric Stafford, played for.

We offered a Lithuanian player today Paulius Zalys 6-7 SF from Perkiomen School, his first offer. Another Jersey Shore Warrior player.

Offer tweeted by Deirunas Visockas who, xbo has informed me, has a venture representing foreign players.

You don't seem to like any of the players we are looking at. Perhaps you could give us a list of players you think we should be recruiting.

To the contrary - I like Zalys - just not sure we get him. But, you are correct re: Krmpotich. And I like Klimewski a lot. We need some wide(r) bodies who can provide some physical play underneath.

PS - as I look at these last names would also like a Smith, Jones and Brown.

When your team hasn't won a championship in 15 years and losses to a conference member by 34 we fans should be forgiven for a bit of sarcasm.

But, this could be the year!

BTW, BU has 2 2015 verbals and 18 remaining open offers. They've offered 6 or 7 2016s and a few 2017 just to contrast styles.

I'll admit, I've kind of given up on Lafayette basketball...  Sad

It will be a replay of the past dozen years or so:

4 shooters on the floor at all times.

Out-rebounded and out-muscled in the paint.

Will win some games we shouldn't (just to build your hopes).

Will lose some games we shouldn't (just to give you a reality check).

Contender, but no trophy.

And that, folks, is Lafayette basketball.

The only surprise win last year was over American, unless one contends that all the D1 wins were upsets. Next year will be better? It has to be. More production is needed underneath. Just like a lot of years.
The program -- adjust for issues all you  want it doesn't change the bottom line -- needs to turn around.
We are 0 for the 21st century in 20-win seasons and titles.
