Looks like a perfect fit for Hayford's offense. Last JUCO scoring guard SU landed ended up going pretty well (Terrell Brown). SU will be a young team next year. Just two seniors in Aaron Nettles and WSU grad transfer Daron Henson

Good to see you back here SV.

Glad to be back, excited for the WAC and how it's shaping up 04-cheers

I was wondering where you had been. Glad to see you back.

RE: WAC Commits 2020-21
Apparently, it appears, Tarleton State has received a commitment from NAIA player Konstantin Dotsenko, a 6'7 forward from Oblast, Russia. He played his freshman year at Freed-Hardeman so it is unclear if he is immediate eligible. However, he did dominate at the NAIA level; averaging 18.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg, and made 3.8 three per game shooting 43% from behind the arc. He has real deep range. Dotsenko was 1st team and Freshman of the Year in his NAIA conference. For what is worth, Freed Hardeman finished with a 18-10 record last season.

Oblast is a term like county, district or such. There is usually a specific location before Oblast. Think County Mayo in Ireland, Linconshire in England, or Canton Valais in Switzerland.

I took the information as written from his Freed-Hardeman roster profile...

If Tarleton State signs him to the Texan roster, maybe they will clarify where's his hometown.

Well, Dotsenko will definitely spread the court with his shooting. The key is can he play good defense at a D1 level?

Paul Westhead implemented a similar style at Loyola Marymount back in the early 1990's... The Guru of Go. To run that type of offensive system a coach needs to have a deep roster with interchangeable players. All must be good athletes with high motors and highly skilled scorers. They must all be able to rebound since there is no traditional big man in the post.

Keep in mind, under Jans, NMSU's roster goes 10-12 deep every season. All are very good athletes and play a tough brand of defense. Also, NMSU typically leads the WAC in rebounding yearly. Can't have a fastbreak if you can't get a rebound to trigger it.

No criticism, just trying to help add something to the conversation. I would hope that Tarleton would fix that.

That's not true. In Jans' second year, NMSU went 13 deep. All those players were interchangeable, we had different starting lineups all season, the minutes were evenly distributed, etc. Contrast that with Will McNair last year, as an example. He played in just about every game, be he played sparingly and didn't contribute much. I would not consider him to be a part of a 10-12 man rotation. Jans has had one season with a large rotation.

Last season, Jans' deep rotation was circumvented by injuries, Harris, Henry, and Likayi would have likely seen at lot of minutes. If not for that, the Aggie rotation would have been very similar to the 2018-19 season. Even despite that, NMSU had nine players who played at least 15 minutes per game. In 2018-19 it was 11 players who played at least 15 minutes per game; and Keyon Jones and Jabari Rice were seeing about 10-12 minutes in a game.

Another thing, Jans doesn't necessarily recruit all his players to be interchangeable like in "Nellie Ball". Jans puts high demands on his point guard to direct the team. I remember him saying that he builds a roster to specifically have three functional point guards and three functional post players. And, the rest of his roster can be interchangeable over the other three starting positions.

Chicago State adds a transfer from Idaho State; Coreyoun Rushin, a 6'6, 195-lbs, Junior, who is a Chicago native. He averaged 3.9 ppg and 3.2 rpg for the Bengals a season ago.

He might have to change his tune if BCG is right. By the way BCG's complete flip of our roster is shaping up, it's clear we're going full Nellie Ball, at least for year one. As a longtime Mavs and Don Nelson fan, I'm really curious to see if it'll work in the WAC. A lineup of quick, lengthy and scrappy 6'5/6'6 guys isnt what I initially had in mind, but maybe coach is on to something.

RE: WAC Commits 2020-21
Running Nellie Ball is a gimmick style of play. It might cause some trouble in the WAC in the short term. But if Texan fans ever hope to see Tarleton State compete with the D1 big boys literally, BCG will need to recruit more size and transition to a more conventional style of basketball. I see BCG trying to replicate what he did at UTEP; where he had one true big man the paint with four wing players either slashing to the basket or setting up on the perimeter. His 2003-04 UTEP averaged 77.5 ppg which was good enough for 20th in the nation in scoring. If Tarleton State's wing players are suitable in 2020-21, I see BCG locking in on signing an athletic big man (6'9 or larger) for 2021-22.

As for Jans, I don't see him changing anything in the way he recruits; only to continue signing players good enough to win the WAC yearly and challenge/upset P5 programs in the Holiday and NCAA tournaments.

It's pretty clear now he's betting on that. Nelly would, and now Steve Kerr will often have their "big" bring the ball upcourt (Draymond Green). Because they're also good passers and a 3-threat, it causes confusion and mismatches, allows the smaller quicker guys to get open around the rim. BCG adding the 6'7 Russian perimeter/3-shooter is making more sense now. I agree out of necessity, this is what he has to do for year one until he has a season and a full year of recruitment under his belt. Should be fun to watch though.
