If he leaves there will be one ride to give but it won't be someone as good as Heron. Without Heron next year's roster will be a step down in overall skill though hopefully the stronger frontcourt will address one of this team's worst flaws, rebounding. Hope they can stay middle of the pack.


I agree. I think next year this roster (and who knows where we'll be with defections), without Heron, would be a bit deeper, but certainly lack the top line talent we had this year with Heron-Ponds. Still think a realistic goal, assuming everyone but Ponds & Heron (and obviously Clark) returns is to make the tournament again. Could be 4th or 5th team next year in a much stronger Big East. We'd have less talent, but we'd have no real holes with Steere/Manuel/Roberts/a hopefully improved Keita up front, Simon/Mack/Williams/Trimble/Wright (haven't heard much about him) in the back court. LJ/Carraher out on the wing.


It is way too early to know what our roster will be next season but I don't see earning an NCAA tournament bid with the players you mentioned. Outside of Simon if he returns and Figueroa, we don't know what any of the others will provide next year. Trimble would need to improve substantially to continue being anything but a reserve as would Keita. The rest have either not played enough or at all to form any opinion. Even under the unlikely scenario that Heron and Simon stay it seems a stretch to me. Can't say it won't happen but I sure wouldn't bet on it.

Can’t argue w that. Looking at the way our bench played. Really can’t expect much from anyone next year from our bench, which is a sad thought.

Wright was more like a top 80 player, while Steere was a top 120 recruit. Besides, Wright has already played two "underwhelming" years of college ball. That's not to say, he won't get it going at St. John's next season (for our and, more importantly, his sake, let's hope he does get it going).

I'm just not exactly enthralled with the potential makeup of next season's roster. You already know what I think about the coaching.


Agree with everything you said. I think it all hinges on Mack and/or a fifth-year PG transfer. If we can get a David Cain impersonation out of him/them, I think Wright and Steere both have good seasons. Throw in Figgy and a Simon who hopefully finally understands his strengths and weaknesses on a daily basis and I think we can be better than advertised. It's going to be tough, though, and I still wouldn't be shocked if Simon headed closer to home.

Looks like Vermont is one of our campus games. Vermont is typically a very competitive team.

Yes and it might be a little embarrassing if we lose to them because we still get to advance to the semis of the tourney while they are relegated to the out bracket games.

Does anybody on the Board have any eligibility left?
We may need a ‘6th man’.
Lol.

Wouldn't be the first time that's happened to a team. In fact, some of those teams have gone on to win their tournaments.

Their big scorer, Lamb, should be back for one more year.

www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/sports...ce-slate/3288669002/

The schedule:

Home games: Boston University, George Washington, Lipscomb, Towson.

Road games: Bucknell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Northeastern, St. Bonaventure, St. John's, Virginia, Yale.

The road contests at Virginia and St. John's are part of the on-campus sites for the Hall of Fame Tip Off tournament. The location of the St. John's road game has yet to be determined between Madison Square Garden and Carnesecca Arena in Queens. (As an aside: do they really think they're getting MSG?)

Joining UVM, Virginia and St. John's in the HOF field are Rider, Columbia, Central Connecticut, Arizona State and Massachusetts, according to Jon Rothstein of Sports Illustrated.

Keep telling yourself that! Heron played like a beast, and for a good part of the year was our MVP!

Yeah, when he wasn't going through the motions.
