RE: Dickens
Fantastic news! Any word on if this counts as his freshman year (since he only played three games and got hurt last season) or is this his sophomore season? Also, any word on who we played the closed scrimmage against and how we did?

He'll have 3 years left to play starting this season. Coach stated at the tip off dinner that they will scrimmage GW...I haven't heard how that went. I'm not sure any details will come out on that.

This takes us from a solid NIT team to a possible NCAA team especially with this group of starters. Again...if we can get a little consistency shooting from the outside we could be a dangerous team. This will also give us time to develop the younger bigs on the team.

I believe the answer to your first question is unknown at this time which is why you have not seen it already answered in the reports. Patience may be its own reward in this case.

Both Dickens and Elbert were highly rated recruits. If they can temain healthy and play anywhere close to their potential, look out.

Pilot article says he has "sophomore eligibility" so he has 3 years.

How??

We weren’t an ncaa tourney team last year and neither transfer is anywhere near as good as stith or porter.

I know you guys love to “win the offseason”, but we still have some HUGE front court question marks. If either of these guys is a stiff we still have a huge hole to fill in the starting lineup.

Glad he got the waiver, now let’s see what he and the other 7 footer can do before we make any grand proclamations.

As of TODAY that is true but as I said above be patient.

Dajour is an inside threat and he is every bit as good offensively as Trey. Dajour can get stronger. Plus with Kithcart and a few others we can be a very dangerous team. Like I said if all goes well this season I can see us being in a good position to be a NCAA team this year. I always look at things realistically and this team has the potential on paper. With a little consistency from the outside shooting the ball and some defensive toughness from Dajour we have the pieces in place.

Good news for everyone. Glad Providence helped our NCAA compliance office in getting this done.

First of all you have no way of knowing that whatsoever. He’s playing against no one in practice so even if you’ve seen those, it’s meaningless.

Secondly, with our very mediocre schedule yet again this year, it once again means we will most likely need to win CUSA to get in, something we’ve never once done. I’m sure someone will convince me it’s great but it looks very similar to last year’s schedule and I just don’t see the high end signs yet wins anywhere to be found.

We might have a couple of chances but I highly doubt we win those games with such a brand new mix of players early.

Finally, I’m glad dickens is eligible and I’m glad we will at least have a chance this year, but anyone who sees this team as an at large right now with the weak schedule and the massive question marks in the front court is absolutely kidding themselves, just like you were last year.

I’ve been right every single season about jones teams not being NCAA tourney teams and I have little to no doubt about this team again this year for a variety of factors.

We won 25 games last year and didn’t sniff the NCAA tourney. This year’s team is NOT better than last year’s and only the most irrational, least knowledgable fans would argue against that at THIS exact point in time.

But please, tell me why I’m wrong so I can laugh at you all for the sixth season in a row lol.
