And Jordan Page, whom I consider to be one of SMC's best players, had his ACL surgery just 3 days ago....so he probably won't be available next year.

Ha-ha, I've had a few contact me to say the move by Cullen Neal to New Mexico is just a "rumor." Perhaps, but this picture of Cullen at a TV studio in Albuquerque an hour ago says otherwise.



And Cullen's tweet over 5 hours ago:
I'm going to be a Lobo. And it looks like we got some #unfinishedbusiness ! Lets go!!! #nuffsaid

From SMC Coach Randy Bennett regarding Cullen Neal:
He has the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play for his father, Craig, at the University of New Mexico. Because of this special situation, we have agreed to grant him a release of his commitment to Saint Mary’s. Cullen is a great person and will be very successful at New Mexico. I wish him and his family the best.
SMC still has some good players coming in with highly touted Calvin Hermanson (Lake Oswego) and Dane Pineau (Australia) arriving this summer, but who will play the PG? Some of the options are Stephen Holt, Jordan Giusti, Jorden Page (who is recovering from ACL surgery), or Treaven Duffy….but they are a long way from being Matthew Dellavedova.

Between Mickey McConnell, Patty Mills and Dellavedova, SMC has had a string of really solid, if not great college point guards for the last 6 years... Which pretty much coincided with their string of tourney appearances.

Even without the sanctions, it would have been interesting to see how they would have fared without that clear PG prospect ready to step in (Although Jorden Paige is pretty solid when healthy)

I already heard that announcement on the radio.
Still trying to get confirmation from another source, but I just received word that Mike Moser will NOT be transferring to UW or GU, but will instead enroll at Oregon for his final year of college basketball. Shocked

If true, the NOT transferring to GU will be a huge relief to many WCC coaches. tongue

Confirmation from Duck Territory:
UNLV junior power forward Mike Moser has decided to transfer to Oregon according to his former AAU coach and mentor Kumbeno Memory.

"Mike just committed to Oregon," Memory said by text message.

The 6-foot-8 power forward will have one year of eligibility left and can play right away. Moser chose Oregon over Gonzaga and Washington. Moser officially visited Oregon three weeks ago and then saw Washington following that visit. Moser proceeded to visit Gonzaga last two weeks ago and has since been deciding on a school.

A last minute unofficial visit to Oregon last week may have sealed the deal for Oregon.

The former Oregon prep signed with UCLA in 2008 and transferred to UNLV after his freshman season. In 2011-12 Moser was named an honorable All-American averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebounds. In 2012-13 Moser suffered an elbow injury that caused him to miss seven games and was forced to play small forward instead of power forward. He finished the year averaging 7 points and 6 rebounds.
Good school, good team, a very good coach.....a wise choice in my mind!

GU fans mostly resigned, and happy he didn't go to Udub.

OT- there is a pretty funny series of posts about Fr. Hightower moving from GU to a new assignment: Fr. Hightower Transferred. Well done, Zag wits.

Haha, yea, I saw that a couple of days ago and thought it was hilarious.

As a young boy I was greatly impressed by the Catholic schools that had a priest on the bench with the team during games, and it's a positive impression that’s still with me today.....I love that GU has continued the tradition.

I enquired of our AD a couple of ADs ago about Fr. Pru or another priest occupying a spot on UP's bench, but was given a nothing more than a laugh and, "It would cost too much" for an answer.

I had Craig as a religion teacher back when he was still Mr. Hightower and he officiated one of my best friends weddings. Hahaha now I'm glad I don't have to shoot him looks of scorn whenever I see him at home over the holidays...
