RE: 18-19 Basketball Roster
Thanks for the list...

Interesting talent and most have some college playing experience...with multiple years of eligibility left.

Tall guards, a bruiser at 6-8 and two other 6-9 forwards. Not as dire as I feared. Hopefully perimeter defense reappears on the Southside this fall.

I would say this year's success comes down to chemistry, and team chemistry can't get much worse than what we had last year.

I suspect the Cornell guy could turn out to be a much more important addition than the stats (previous, and this upcoming season) show.

RE: 18-19 Basketball Roster
hopefully, to improve chemistry, our marketing department will learn, that if they are going to promote one player, make sure it is the best player on the team.

As we only have one exciting and proven player left from last year, hopefully the marketing department can figure it out.

Nahhhh...who am I kidding...

Or maybe just promote the team instead of one player.

If there is a year to do that, it is definitely this one. Probably a good idea to publish a promotional video just letting us know who is on the team.

Damn good idea. Our history in sports marketing leads me not to expect one.

Will Bathurst is not on the new men's basketball roster posted today on the UAB website. Is he still part of the upcoming team?

If the focus is only one player and we start calling it one particular player¡s team, then it is a recipe for failure. It’s all of the players team
