One trip under Lefty and a couple of nice wins against decent teams. One trip under Brady that was an accident as much as anything. Mid-majors go to the NCAA tourney more than once in a generation.

Now, I'd say we're a solid mid-major in women's hoops...or were under Kenny.

"Mid-major"...hate that term, and the horse it rode in on (which were the talking heads on Sports in Spanish (ESPN-like) programs promoting the P5 schools. Lefty railed against the term too. The terms has done "major" damage to college sports, and have turned them into minor-league farm systems for the pros.

Coach Rowe was in to visit Taevion Kinsey the other day- staff putting in work on the guys who just visited JMU to get commitments. In separate news JMU offered several Gonzaga (DC) players the other day (2019 and 2020 recruits).

Thanks for the update. Should be a lot of movement over the next 4-6 weeks regarding verbal commitments being made. Fingers crossed we can land a couple (or three).

My high school. I can say without blinders on, that Gonzaga plays in one of the toughest conferences in the country. Think DeMatha. Matt Lewis played in the same conference. If he doesn't pan out, it is definitely NOT because he dominated lesser competition.

A measure of the quality of that conference is that Matt was probably the third option on an ok team in that conference. The center is going to Providence and the rising junior point guard is getting ACC looks.
