Too soon!!

The Pilots were favored by 12 in that game and lost in 2OT....

Of that game the late Dean Murdoch wrote:
Well that was incredibly frustrating. Both teams looked awful for most of the night. That NTU three-pointer off the back rim, 10 feet in the air, and back down and in is the only reason it went to the second OT, and then that Taylor took over for them.

Ohhhhh Pilots, you can be such a tease sometimes

RIP Dean. (For the official record, T.J. Taylor would never again break the 20-point barrier in his NCAA career. Dropped 21 on the Pilots that day)

Ahhh well, they can have that win. We'll just have to get over it by watching Ray Barreno in a Pilot uniform for the next couple of years.

Implies that the trip to Europe was for a 2015 prospect.  And if it was productive, that means . . . what?

Everyone needs a back-up plan... After Barreno decided to come to Portland, North Texas signed 6'-10" high school center Trevor Thompson, from Prosper, TX.

And also wrote: "When Berry and Barreno faced each other in November, Berry played 18 minutes and Barreno played 17. In that time Berry had 4 fouls and Barreno 5.

These guys are either bangers or rather slow to react...”

If both those statements are accurate our 7’0” may should receive plenty of playing time. I am hoping the young man keeps developing given the description of his improvement Reveno suggested on the radio.

Can't help but believe that both Philipp and Ray, with seemingly contrasting styles of play, will each be better players by going against each other day after day in practice.

Although, with Germany's much better success in the World Cup, but Mexico's upset of Germany in the U17 World Cup semifinal game a about 4 years ago, there could also be a friendly feud develop between the two.

From what I've heard of his game and personality, I'm surprised he's considering Pullman as a destination.  
Lot I know.....Connor Clifford signed with WSU today.

I'm guessing it was his only Pac-12 offer, and that's the conference he and his dad wanted him to play in.  Good luck in Pullman, Connor.....I hope UP plays WSU during the 2016-17 season when Ray Barreno and Clifford are seniors.

Russo passed on both Wichita State and Minnesota and is headed to Fresno State.   sunny

As a Minnesota native who played in Hobbs, New Mexico for two years, guess he liked the sunnier (and extremely dry) climate.

I've lost track, but I believe that's at least 6 NMJC players who will be at D1 schools next season.

Just as Telly Davenport was the backup in the event Rashad Jackson didn't sign, Rev was probably "camping out" with the backup (probably Karolis Kundrotas) if Ray Barreno had not committed.
After decomitting from UNC-Charlotte, Kundrotas has signed with another D1 North Carolina school, Elon University of the Colonial League

I wish we could have got that guy to come to UP somehow. Couldn't we have stashed him away at some prep school for a year? Or Clark College?

Berry, once a Top-10 prep player in Rhode Island, today signed with the University of Rhode Island.....a program that was rated #56 in the nation by Pomeroy last year.

Only two 2015 grads on the first team:
Eli Lininger, Yale
Kadeem Strickland, no known college offers
Former UP assistant and brand new Western Oregon head coach, Jim Shaw, has signed his first recruit....Kadeem Strickland.

Strickland averaged 21.3 points, 7.4 assists and 2.3 steals a game in his senior season at Jefferson to land on the Oregon 6A first team.

Sometimes it takes a while to research these things....

After finding a video of the Olympus High School Class of 2014 LDS Missionaries read there assignments to adoring friends and family in a "Where are the going" segment, it was revealed that Alec was headed to Guayaquil, Ecuador.....where he is still on duty and apparently staying in touch with the UP coaching staff.

If he's got the time, a little research shows quite a few places to shoot hoops in Guayaquil, a city with a population of over 2.4 million people... tongue

UP loses one Central Catholic point guard/football player and gains another.

With the graduation of David Carr, UP was momentarily without a Central Catholic point guard, but now Xavier Hallinan, 6-1/160, will join the Pilots as a walk-on this coming season. In his senior year Hallinan led the Rams to a 23-6 record and 4th place in the state tournament played in the Chiles Center in March.  

Walk-ons like David Ahern ahead of him generally don't have much chance of earning a scholarship, but instead find their role is to make their scholarship teammates better by going against them in practice every day. With only one scholarship available next year, it would seem Xavier's roll will be to make Alec a bit better each day.  On the other hand, remember it was walk-on David Ahern that was pressed into emergency duty to keep the ship afloat during his only year on the Bluff....

Xavier on the court and catching the winning pass against Jesuit last August:

In a word, no.

It is expected that Chiir will be enrolled at UP this summer, along with all the other recruits, but it is not clear what hurdles he must overcome to be eligible to play basketball for UP.

Regardless, it is my understanding that he will be using one of UP's 13 men's basketball scholarships.
Chier Maker is listed on the 2015-16 roster on the UP website. I'm not sure if that means/implies anything about his NCAA eligibility. Obviously he could still redshirt.

All of the other expected guys are listed, too. Including Hallinan. Young squad this year!

It had to even tougher for the North Texas fans when their team lost 66-7 to "Portland freaking St." in the Mean Green's homecoming game last Saturday.

Not only did they lose the game, their head football coach was fired the next day.... Shocked

Have been curious all season how well Conor (just one n) Clifford has been fitting-in with WSU and the Pac-12.....and today I finally got to seem him play in Pullman against Cal.  

Of course Cal won, and Conor did not impress me as a Pac-12 caliber player (no surprise really), but he could have been a force in the WCC or some other mid-major conference.

Very skilled with his feet and hands, and BIG at 7-0/285, he's just not athletic/quick enough to go up against the athleticism possessed by so many of the big men at the upper major level.  

I certainly hope he's happy in Pullman (and his dad too, as it seemed he was the one who steered him away from another mid-major after spending two years at UC-Irvine), but at 1-14 in conference play, I don't think anyone is very pleased with the fortunes of the Cougars under first year WSU coach, Ernie Kent.
