Mitch sold his L.A. home for $8 million (profit of $6 mil) 2 years ago. But the way that CA real estate is going it would probably cost $50 million to replace it now. Don't think assistant college basketball coaches can afford California.

Yoda-like indeed Paultz! I’m guessing Marcus Carr? He was 3* out of HS? Solid freshman stats at Pitt: 43% 2-pt range, 33% 3-pt land, 81% FT, 1.46 A/TO, 20 steals, 10 pt/g.

And now we're getting pumped up about these guys on matt's radar?
Has the program fallen this far?


Have you checked the 2019 recruiting section? We're certainly still in the mix on plenty of legit names. This post is just about a snapshot of what Matt is currently going after in the transfer route, since we all know that's a huge need right now. Clam down people!!


I'm sorry it is a fair complaint. A big part of the reason Lavin was fired was because of his recruiting or lack thereof you cannot simply excuse the current staff's lack of success as that is just the way it is at SJU.

Also the failure to target and follow thru on key recruits and continued focus on transfers is partly due at least to the laziness and staff screwup (see Slice) of the current regime.

You cannot simply dismiss that as "Oh we never get top 25 recruits anyway." That is a copout.


I'm not dismissing the current staff at all! I'm not happy with the results either. I'm just being realistic about the situation here. Are there any recruits on that list who anyone could have realistically expected us to land, especially now knowing about the pay for play behind the scenes? Sure I'd like to see this staff seemingly work harder. The results will speak for themselves. Next year is make or break. I'll let the results speak for themselves instead of harping on something we don't have all of the information about.

Are the other two assistants involved in any of the recruiting, and if not, what else would they being doing at this time of the year?

Retired multi millionaires with NBA pensions an easily afford Manhattan Beach or Hermosa Beach AND have enough left over for a bachelor pad on the upper east side.

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Retired multiillionaires also don't necessarily have the motivation and drive and passion to put in the grind required either. Just an observation.
