While I oved watching Jon Jon play we almost won both games he missed and against Ball state they played better than the game they lost when he played in the game.

One more thing when they won the MAC in 06/07 Tino Valencia was the post play and while he was listed at 6'4" He was really probably not taller than 6'2'

Very good point about the 06/07 team. The tallest player on that team was 6-7 Jerrah Young

RE: MBB: PG Dylan Alderson Commits
The roster is now up to the 13 allowed players. We have one transfer who has to sit out this year. We have one player who will be eligible at the end of the first semester. Therefore, we start the season with 11 eligible players. Most years we redshirt someone but I do not think it is necessary this year. It would be great to have a full roster of guys who can contribute. Under Coach K it seems that we have always had a short bench. Hopefully, that will not be the issue this year.

If everyone returns after this upcoming season, we will have one scholarship to offer for the 2018 class. He needs to be really good and big-no mistakes.

The way things go everywhere there will be at least 1 transfer as well and this is not an indictment on anyone it happens at all schools these days

Tino... was a master at getting his shot off even for his size. Bulk matters ;-)

I like the roster for 2017-18 even though we are "short". Pono and others in previous posts have provided very nice analyses of the team . Coach K has increased the overall athleticism dramatically since his arrival which I applaud. Just how good the newcomers will be as basketball players is to be seen. I'm sure my season ticket money will be well spent this season. I look forward to a fun season at savage.

Go Rockets!

yeah, should be a fun team. and there is a good non-conf home and away schedule for a change. early indications are that willie jackson is one of the top players but he doesn't become eligible until mid december so i wouldn't expect the team to fully peak until mac season.
