It says that completes the roster, so we have 15 players available. I guess that means Curtis and Pippins are walk-ons.

"Highly regarded for his defensive skills." I like that. Also that he can play point if needed.

We shouldn’t run out of players this season

A lot different than last season. Lots of points. Lots of size. Two things we have not always had in the past.

From the article this morning in the ADG, it is far from certain that he will be eligible to play this season. There was a coaching change at UNLV where he came from, so maybe- I really don’t know how the NCAA currently considers that for a waiver. Also, along those lines, he got very little PT at UNLV, so a new coach may have been something you might think he would have welcomed.

In any case, I figure he was just gravy at this point - UNLESS he really is that defensive stopper.

He is a graduate transfer. At least that is what a previous thread about him said.

That is what I recall as well. But, Verbal Commits does not list him as immediately eligible. Maybe, he just finished up his course work to graduate this summer. I guess we will know pretty soon.

The school release says he has 2 years of eligibility. He has already redshirted and played 2 seasons. So if he were to sit out a year he would have only 1 year left.

I’m pretty sure you get six years to play four. If so, two years of eligibility left even if he has to sit this season.

Ben was taking more hours than he could handle in order to try to graduate from UNLV. He didn't quite get there.

The new MBB coach at UNLV had Ben Coupet, Jr. and Trey Woodbury, both, put their names in the transfer portal on the same day. Woodbury has already received his waiver to play this year at Utah Valley. I feel pretty good that Ben will get the same waiver, but I've watched the NCAA do some goofy stuff over the years. Never count them out to throw a wrench in your gears.

Is Coupet good enough to be a difference-maker in Little Rock?

Ben was a three star recruit coming out of high school. He is a likely starter for the Trojans, but won't be a lottery pick, so it depends on your definition of "difference-maker".

Ben didn't get much run at UNLV. Had Menzies kept his job, Ben would have had a chance to break into the rotation this year. Menzies got canned, the new coach came in and wanted to make room on the roster, so Ben was sent to put in for his transfer.

If he is good enough to start, he well obviously be a great addition to our team. Just hope he will be declared eligible.

If he can make the rotation at UNLV, he probably can make it here, and that definitely would make a difference to us.

Last night, at Little Rock Trojan Day downtown, I asked a couple returning players who they were most impressed with among the newcomers and they stated "Rout and Ben".

I get that this program has had a few bad seasons since Beard left, some of you are suffering from BFS (battered fan syndrome), but there is reason to have some hope.

Every season is a new one. And even coaches can learn things, so yes, that is correct.
