Of the schools that have offered Lonnie Rivera, are we not the most competitive?



He has an offer from American, who obviously was a lot better last year and figures to be good this year. Winthrop won 20 games and returns most of their players but I expect LC will be better than them this year.


5 transfers on the roster for AU this season, is that correct 137?



Actually I think it's six - four of whom have yet to play:

- Austin Carroll (Rutgers) - has turned out to be a bust
- Pee Wee Gardner (SF Austin) - obviously very good
- Jonathan Davis (GWU) - eligible this year; never played much at GW.
- Kevin Panzer (Nevada) - likely starter at center this year but a perimete player
- Leon Tolksdorf (UConn) - from Germany; has to sit out this year.
- Paris Maragkos (GWU) - from Greece; has to sit out this year.

Over the years, AU's success/failure rate on transfers from higher-level schools is probably 50/50. AU figures to be good this year - although losing Wroblicky is huge. After this year, they may take a step back however - unless a couple of the transfers turn out to be very good.


Thanks, 137.  Amazing.  I guess i'm stuck in a time warp , but all these transfers (gate 4 starters) blows me away.   You've done a nice job explaining the transfer admissions loophole.

I sat next to Klimewski(sp?) at the football game last night which he left at half time. He attended with his family. He is tall but slighter than he appeared on line and in photos. He does look like he has broken his nose several times thereby supporting his rep as a tough rebounder.He is sturdy but not overly large or bulky.

Evans' HS coach for the last 3 years, btw, was Jaye Andrews. Andrews played for Bucknell from 1981 to 1985 and was the ECC POY in 84-85. Also drafted by the 76ers. Andrews continues to teach at Greenhill but stepped down as coach this past May after 10 years at Greenhill which were preceded by a long coaching run at Landon. Andrews' daughter, btw, is part of Bucknell's soccer recruiting class for next season.

Andrews also participated in one of the most painful BU losses in history, when they lost the 1984 ECC championship game in OT when Rider's big man, who had hit 30% on FTs for the year, went 15-16 down the stretch, including two that banked and all that were ugly.

The 84 game was not a big upset. Rider was 20-11 overall and 11-5 in the league. I believe Kevin Thomas is the Rider center who you are referring to.  The bigger upset for BU was 1985 when they were upended by 12-19 overall and 6-8 league Lehigh. Of course, LU had probably the best two players ever, Mike Polaha and Darren Queenan.

Yes it was Thomas. Unfortunately I was at both games. Might not have been a big upset but definitely was an upset, given that BU had a league record of 14-2 that year.  As for the LU loss, that was admittedly a bigger upset.  Bucknell's Chris Seneca threw in a very long shot at the buzzer to tie it but unfortunately the 3-point rule didn't take effect until two years later.  BU fouled out a few key players and lost in OT

Bucknell did get some measure of revenge in the 1987 tournament when they took out LU 103-100 in two OTs despite Queenan's 49 points.  Queenan and Polaha were great players but not the best LU players if CJ is included.

Evans is variously listed as 6-3, 6-5 or 6-6, so I guess you take your choice for the moment. He is also listed as 187 lbs. - or 178. The Greenhill School is a "private day school" near Dallas with 1,200 students in grades K thru 12. It is therefore not very large and does not play in a league with the larger Texas schools. If you check the photo galleries here

http://www.greenhill.org/Page/Ath...Hornet-Athletics-/Boys-Basketball

you will see some photos of Evans' signing day ceremony.

I haven't found any stats, but Evans was his team's MVP in both his sophomore and junior seasons. Checking the schedule, Greenhill plays mostly against private and Christian schools.

We all wish the kid nothing but the best, but it would appear that he will have a sizable adjustment to play at the D-1 level. We all remember Jared Mintz who came to Lafayette from a similar background. I seem to recall that he was a fair to middling hoopster after our friend 137 and other members of the loyal opposition laughed themselves into near unconsciousness after his signing. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Come on Carney, this is the kind of kid you say we never get. As a junior, he averaged 16 ppg ,3 assts, & 5 rbds. He played AAU for Texas Select, a team that's sent players to Vanderbilt, Colorado State, UTEP, and Baylor.  It appears he is 6'5, 180#. Maybe he'll be 6.6 next year. He can shoot the 3, drive to the hoop and rebound. Looks like he can play the 2 or 3. Based on the video I watched, I think its a good recruit.

My hat's off to you.  This is the information I couldn't find.  Good job.

What determines the adjustment is less the H.S. and more the AAU competition. I have no idea who his AAU team played, but it sounds like they had good personnel. FWIW, he had decent offers: Colgate, LIU, S.F. Austin, Texas State, and Dartmouth. Not great, but a lot better than no offers.

As for Mintz, there were a few who were very down on his signing on this board - but I don't recall being one of them. I likely wasn't high on him since I knew nothing about him - but I don't think my attitude fit your description.

Fran offered another 2015 yesterday - 6-9 230 PF Jack Lieb. Unfortunately so did about 6 other schools. The kid is suddenly red hot. If we dont get him will Fran hold this scholarship for next year? It appears that Zalys remains committed to LC.

Good news, although not a surprise. Kyle and two other Parkland players and an Emmaus player attended more games than Carney. Its good to see some local players in multiple sports considering Lafayette.

Alas, the hi-lited passage is so true. My wife knows that she cannot disturb me me on Saturdays in the fall. She is not nearly as forgiving on the other 354 days of the year. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Keith Groller did a good story on Kyle Stout in today's Mourning Crawl:

http://www.mcall.com/sports/varsi...sketball-0506-20150506-story.html

His high school coach, Andy Stephens, says this in the article:

"Once Kyle matures and grows into his body, he's really going to be a heck of a player. It just may take some time,"

Probably another project, but I guess that's our position on the recruiting wheel when it comes to front court talent.

"Stout shot 47 percent from the field, including 43 percent from 3-point range. He made a team-high 52 3-pointers overall and was an 83 percent shooter from the foul line. "

Enough said for FOH.
