I had a discussion some years ago about replays, and at that time the directive from the WCC was to not show obvious referee call errors.

If that’s still the case, what’s the point?

We ought to be able to see the same replays the referees see on video review, or what they should be looking at.

Portland will be hosting Cal Poly, Texas State and one team TBD in a round robin event. Games will be played either November 22nd-24th or 23rd-25th.

Was mentioned on the podcast linked in the 2018 recruiting thread. Coach Cantu also name dropped some other teams he could remember. That being said, I think this is an updated list of known teams we're playing in next year's offseason. In previous years there were a total of 13 non-exhibition offseason games, so far we know (or assume) 12, but with the changes to the WCC regular season schedule next year with slightly fewer games, my guess is there'll be slightly more than 13.

I think this coming season the tournament we are playing in in Hawaii is the Outrigger Resorts Rainbow Classic. In the Cantu interview, he also said that we are playing in the more prestigious Diamond Head Classic the following year (2019).

I sure hope we can get another game our two against Pac12 or MW teams for this coming season. How about another series with OSU?

"I'm really excited about taking that next step next year," Porter says, pointing to a .500 record as a reasonable goal for a team that figures to again be among the youngest in the West Coast Conference.

Hmm, just guessing, but I think Pilots fans are wanting/hoping, even expecting, something better than a .500 record.

Maybe a .500 conference record, they mean? I'd be all right with that!

Seconded.

Lets hope this is a case of under-promising and over-delivering...

I will take a .500 record next year if you don't count the non-D1 games. Hope for better. But take the improvement.

The good news about anticipating an even won/loss record next year is the source from which it comes, which is clearly not an exuberant scouting service. It is from head coach Porter who likely is reluctant to issue publicly optimistic views unless those views are born by what he has seen on the court.

If coach Porter believes the Pilots will even their record, perhaps he is understating his assessment.

Let's hope for more, as suggested. "[W]hen we play the right way and everybody's locked in, we can play with anybody in our conference," according to Porter.

Nice to see mention of Fahrensohn and Hogland in the article: "the 6-9 Hogland is one of Portland's more polished post scorers, and Fahrensohn is a shooter."

Fair to say I think that the Pilots style of offense to date depends for success on  shooters, and posts.

Lest we forget about Diabate, the article suggests: "When it comes to rebounding and defending, figure Portland will look to Tahirou Diabate to be a tone-setter."

Go Pilots.

Probably feeling a little displaced and homesick again, I'm sure Chier will appreciate our support when the Bengals play at PSU this coming season.

UP Athletics wrote: Two-time NBA Champion Head Coach… MVP of the top league in Germany… Triple-doubles… Averaging 30 points per game in China… multiple EuroCup and EuroChallenge qualifiers… These are some of the many highlights from the 15 former University of Portland men's basketball players still active in professional organizations around the world. With international leagues ending their respective seasons, here is a 2017-18 update on the various Portland alums still active in the professional ranks.
An excellent "where are they now" article with some good videos.  I had no idea Jarrel Marshall was playing in Ireland... Shocked

Here's another math problem for you, up7587....


As you can see by the chart from maxpreps.com. George Conditt (signed by Iowa St.) led all high school players with 351 blocks this past season while committing 93 personal fouls in 27 games.

UP signee, Theo Akwuba had 191 blocks, but only 24 fouls in the 17 games he participated in.

Using the same methodology that was previously used to figure a blocks to personal fouls ratio, how does Theo stack up against Hartwich, Okonkwo, and Conditt?  scratch

Obviously high school stats can't be compared to college stats. Conditt had a very nice blks/fouls ratio of 3.77. But Theo had a great ratio of 7.95. Only 24 fouls in 17 games as an aggressive defender seems really good. Of course, the level of competition also plays into this. Philipp and Okonkwo had comparable competition. No clue how the competition compared for the high schoolers.
