Marcus Lewis gets a nod

Post by Geezaldinho on Mon Dec 15, 2008 5:35 pm

I just noticed Marcus got a mention on the summit league preseason all conference team.
Nice to see he turned himself around. I hope he does well in this, his Senior year.


Summit league


Marcus Lewis bio

My favorite part of his bio:
2008 Summit League All-Newcomer squad ... Solid low-post performer looks to build on initial ORU season ... Space-eater surprisingly light on his feet in the post ... One of three seniors on the team ... Has an “old school” low post game ... Does lots of little things well ... Great passer and screener

space-eater, indeed.

As long as we're posting about former players, maybe someone can tell me the story about Greg Anthony's transfer from UP to UNLV. I've only heard rumors; so I take them with a grain of salt. Thanks.

We are talking Tark the shark.

Figure the rumors are true.

Anthony's freshman year, Greg had an impact season. but Avina was let go at the end. Larry Steele hired because he was an ex-Blazer, I guess. Bring in fans on name value. UNLV beckoned. Rumor was that Anthony asked Steele if he could provide "extra" benefits, and the answer was "no". So GA went home to Vegas and won a championship with UNLV. Fans never appeared in Chiles, and we transitioned to Chavez, Holton and now Reveno, looking for someone who can win.

Haha I've heard well tenured professors mention the week after Anthony decided to transfer, he was seen on campus driving a brand new Porsche...

Jack Avina's last season, we went 14-14.

I would give a lot for a 14-14 season this year.

I started to write a paragraph about Jack's record. He went 5 years in a row with 17 to 19 wins. And that was playing without a real home gym. Then it fell off to an average of 12 wins for 5 years. But I don't know why the decision was made to make a change. Jack may have thought that to win he had to take some players who may have fallen short in academics, character, whatever. But whatever the issues were, no one has come close to his record since.

Any truth to the rumor that he left because of grades? Or is that slanderous?

As an alum of both UNLV and UP, I would like to comment on the Greg Anthony posts. While there has always been speculation about Tark and his "extra benefits" to players, most notably Lloyd Daniels, Greg Anthony actually as I remember being told was never on scholarship at UNLV. This was due to the fact that Greg had started a small business of his own selling T-shirts and other merchandise and because of that reason he could not be a scholarship player. I also recall Tark winning/settling a lawsuit against the NCAA for harrassment because they would accuse him of cheating for just about anything. Anyways, just wanted to tell my side of the story since I grew up here in Vegas during the glory years, what great teams to watch play. GO REBELS & PILOTS!!!

Thanks, I appreciate that. I'm not into hearsay. I'm not sure I'll believe the porsche story unless one of those profs actually posts...

Well Greg is working for CBS now doing color analysis... Maybe when we make the tournament and he does a game one of us can walk up and ask him. What's he got to lose now?? He already got fired by one network...

Back to Marcus

Post by Geezaldinho on Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:38 am

Oral Roberts will be at North Carolina next. the buildup to the game includes this.


Less is More
Senior forward Marcus Lewis was charged with losing weight and getting in better shape following a solid-but-unspectacular junior season. Lewis responded by dropping over 40 pounds, and his recent play has been a boost to the Golden Eagles. Over the last three games Lewis is averaging 16.7 points and 6.7 rebounds, shooting 64.7 percent from the field. Despite being ORU’s only true low-post presence, Lewis is third on the team in scoring (11.3) and second in rebounding (6.0).
The fromer transfer from the University of Portland is also nearing a siginifcant career milestone. Lewis has scored a combined 869 points in his career, leaving him 131 shy of 1,000 career points. Lewis also recently went over the 500-rebound plateau, and enters Saturday’s game with 519 career rebounds.


If he trimmed down, he could have a monster year.

Golden Eagles

I think they played that game already, Geezer. I'm pretty sure Oral Roberts already lost to UNC; it was on ESPN...unless I'm thinking of a different team.

Ah, yes. Oral Roberts lost 100-84.

Still. Marcus dropped 13 points on 6-9 shooting and got 6 boards.

Here's a picture of him against Hansbrough. The Photo is captioned as a foul. That's what happens when you play away-





He looks SKINNY!

It's easy to look skinny in photos with Tyler... Actually, that looks like pretty good defense though.

Anybody blocking his shot is my hero. But, it does look like he got him a little. I'm sure he got called for a foul the way everybody thinks the other guy is the best player in Nation and "star" players get the call.

I know it's not the point of the thread and pic,but you know me guys I just had to add my big hot two cents and try to hijack the thread in my own selfish direction pirat . He look's good in the black uniform and that's great about his stats too.

I know there was a thread about 6-9 months ago about spell check am I not finding it?Rob's Jacket, Sci-fi,Pilotnut and other moderators/administrator's would you please put spell check on the site if possible. Thanks for the Stohl correction Jacket for some reason I was thinking of the actor Eric Stohl.

Here's an update from the ORU website. It looks like Marcus is finally playing like we knew he could.

Senior forward Marcus Lewis was charged with losing weight and getting in better shape following a solid-but-unspectacular junior season. Lewis responded by dropping over 40 pounds, and his recent play has been a boost to the Golden Eagles. Over the last five games Lewis is averaging 16.6 points and 8.2 rebounds, shooting nearly 66 percent from the field. Despite being ORU’s only true low-post presence prior to Kevin Ford being activated, Lewis is second on the team in scoring (12.4) and second in rebounding (6.6). Lewis has three double-doubles in his last five games. He ranks fourth in the Summit League in field-goal percentage (.592) and sixth in rebounding.
    The former transfer from the University of Portland is also nearing a significant career milestone. Lewis has scored a combined 978 points in his career, leaving him 22 shy of 1,000 career points. Lewis also recently went over the 500-rebound plateau, and enters Saturday’s game against Oakland with 578 career rebounds.
