As does the coaching staff!!

He's a been a very good leader during his redshirt year and should make a big impact on the team....it's pretty obvious that he really wants to win and has high expectations.

Still a very long way to go and mountains to climb in terms of other teams in the WCC, but if the Pilots can sign some key guys, they'll at least get closer to their goal.

Maybe Clark’s prediction about a UP tournament appearance is based on insider knowledge about GU moving to the MWC.

Thanks for that, SV,

I watched some of it on Twitter this morning, and look forward to Tyson and the WCC making it through to the ESPN2 games tomorrow.

The great thing for these seniors, besides the fun and exposure it gives them, is the $105,000 in prize money:

The total prize pool for the Event is One Hundred Five Thousand US Dollars (US $105,000.00), to be distributed as follows:

   Each Team winning a Game during pool play, but excluding any Pool Tie-Break Game, will receive a prize of One Thousand US Dollars (US $1,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team.
   Each Team winning a Game during the first round, second round, and consolation round of the Event bracket stage will receive a prize of One Thousand US Dollars (US $1,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team.
   The Team winning the Event’s bracket stage will receive a prize of Fifty Thousand US Dollars (US $50,000.00) to be distributed equally between Players on that Team.
So far, the WCC has beaten the American Conference, the Ohio Valley Conference, and the Horizon League....so there's at least a little spending money for the boys. Cool

Worth sharing: it's a ranking of D1 schools by basketball budgets based on those Department of Education numbers.

Pretty impressive what Loyola Chicago (#137) accomplished.  They got there with KU #10, Villanova #11 and Michigan #39.

GU is #38, BYU is #61.  The other 8 WCC schools all are in the 100-150 range, and average 117; UP is #121.  They all (excluding SMC) need to get their RPI to a similar range.

2018-2019 Season

Post by The Wingman on Sat Apr 07, 2018 4:04 pm

I just read that Pacific is losing two of its top four scorers next year. Number two leading scorer, Miles Reynolds, and number four leading scorer, Jack Williams, are leaving the program. Ouch!

If the Pilots can avoid any major injuries or unexpected transfers, I am cautiously optimistic about next year.  My vote for starting lineup is:
1) PG - Marcus Shaver, Jr.; 2) Crisshawn Clark; 3) Josh McSwiggan; 4) Tahirou Diabate; 5) Hugh Hogland or Jacob Tryon.   In my opinion, that’s a starting lineup that can compete most nights in the WCC. Equally important, we have potential to have a strong bench led by Franklin Porter, JoJo Walker, Malcolm, Rashad and others. I’m still at a loss for why Rashad did not play more minutes last year.

We still have two open scholarships.  These two scholarships can add a lot of depth to the forward/center positions. Any updates from the recruiting visits this weekend?

I'm definitely intrigued to see what Tryon can bring to the team but I'm not sure if the current plan would be to give starting minutes right off the bat to either of these guys.

I'd be more inclined to guess Shaver, Clark, Malcolm Porter, McSwiggan, and Diabate as a starting lineup with the knowledge we're still seven months out. Walker and Franklin Porter off the bench, Tryon/Hogland/Phillips I don't know much about so don't know which would be the leading candidate to spell Diabate. Same for Fahrensohn.

Would sure be nice to find an immediate-impact type 4/5, but there's probably 350 other D1 programs looking for the same thing.

Very true... but we would have the selling point of said immediately open starting position. Let's hope the coaches can work some magic!

Way (waaaaay) too early 2018-2019 WCC rankings by a hand few has us at the bottom (again), but hey, this is March April so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

9. Portland. They were better than I thought they'd be at 4 wins but once again, don't have a viable inside game.
10 @PortlandPilots the Pilots have some talent, but are still young and have some issues namely, rebounding and defense. In the spring the Pilots need some bigs and we'll have to see how much they develop individually and as a team.
10. Portland. Porter lasts through next season, then you give it another shot. I thought firing Reveno was a mistake, and I think I was right.

He told me it was a toss-up between attending Brown or Columbia, but he went with his "gut feeling" that Columbia was just a "more comfortable fit."

Dubious choice. My best friend from high school chose Brown.

Brown has a unique grading system. Students can choose between a system that only distinguishes between satisfactory/no credit, or they can choose a system that grades A,B,C.

There is no D, and fail is not recorded.

And the South side of Providence has some great Mafia bars.

Basketball awards dinner tonight. Brian Smith was named Most Inspirational. Philipp was named Best Defensive Player. Josh McSwiggan received the Coaches' Award. And Marcus Shaver was MVP. Marcus was also recognized for being All-WCC Freshman team and WCC Honorable Mention Team.

All returning players were recognized. Philipp and D'Marques were not present as they were practicing for the Nike Hoops Summit. They gave their Senior Speeches via video. The two departing players were not present nor mentioned.

Good rundown (and memory), up7587, thanks!

As I recall, the only other award, Most Improved Player, deservedly went to Malcolm Porter.

Talking to Joseph, it seems his choice of Columbia over Brown was more pragmatic.  Columbia was being much more flexible about allowing him to graduate in 5 years instead of 4.  Tough for an engineer, depending upon focus of engineering studies, to finish in 4.

Saw an Instagram story from UP Athletics about the Chiles Center video boards getting a “facelift.” Anyone know what that means? Are they finally going to get HD screens?

I don't know what that means, but the video boards are really out of date. Poor quality screens, no replay, and they are pretty darn small. It doesn't look like they are installing larger screens, but maybe they will fix the other issues.

I think we all have experienced the repeated crashing of the video system during games.  I have heard through the grapevine that the system that was installed many years ago was done the cheapest way possible--the software and hardware were not up to snuff.  This is great news and something else to look forward to for next season!  

The AD once told me that the "fan experience" was the next item to be upgraded in Chiles, after all of the locker room work, training and medical facilities, coach offices, etc.  Video/scoreboards are part of that.  I had heard the staff mention replacing the outdated center-hung boards and the press table signage... I had not heard that any of it was already happening, however.  Good news!

I know a while back there was discussion of making the 4-sided center-hung screens solely scoreboards/stat boards, and then hanging a video screen or 2 in the corner(s)...  I have no idea if that is the plan here.  Whatever it is, it has to be an improvement!

The old board certainly had the capability to do video replays... in fact, replays were often shown during the first few years the board was there. But operating the board at a level beyond simply doing stats and slideshows requires a lot of manpower and technical know-how, and at some point I think the decision was made to dial down the "whiz-bang" features of the board.

Certainly, better screens and an upgraded operating system would certainly make the board better and easier to manage.
