I was thinking about that as well, he's missed multiple games 2 years in a row with back issues.  I've never heard the staff, media, or anyone say if it's something he'll eventually always deal with and may eventually need surgery or if it was just 2 isolated incidents.  
that’s because it would be a HIPPA violation for anyone at the University to disclose GW’s medical condition unless he gives written permission.

Based on my experience I can tell you that 2 subsequent back injuries like this are almost never “unrelated.” These are chronic issues that flare up every now and then and take some time to subside.

Also, schools are not an entity covered under HIPAA so they aren’t being quiet because of HIPAA, but purely because it’s not really any of our business.

In order to get more minutes they'd likely need to drop down to a mid-major or a power team that's worse than St. John's.

St. John's is likely the best option for most of them. They had a successful year and next year should be better. I'd be very happy to get GW back, I hope he decides to return. 



You're not alone, but I personally disagree that Wusu was our 3rd best player.

I agree, would love to call Greg a fellow alum!

If I had to do a Power Ranking at the end of the season I would say 1. Champ 2. Posh 3. Moore 4. Wusu 5. Williams as the top 5. You could for sure argue Williams as #3 or #4 though, it was just the consistency with me.  

And I hope he comes back, I think he's for sure a starter, and we know what he gives us and we know he can catch fire at any given time.  I'm just skeptical on if CMA would take him back if he wanted to come back, he's always had that you're either with us or against us mentality, however this is an unknown situation with Covid and the one time transfer so maybe he's more understanding of that.

Plus, Mr. Williams has been a big supporter of CMA .and the program. If GW Jr is reconsidering his move, maybe that changes the coach's mind at the end of the day?

In case it hasn't been clear, I'D LOVE GWILL BACK. 

I'd also love ME back because as much as he was streaky, the dude has a deceptively good offensive game when he doesn't force things. 

I'd also LOVE Moore back. As volatile as he was, the dude should have been 6th Man of the Year in the BE. That's huge for a first year player.

I highly doubt CMA cares how big of a supporter the parents are to the program when making a decision what's best for his team.  It doesn't matter how all in the parents are if the kid isn't, they are the one's that are playing, if a kid has doubts he wants to be there that's always going to show in their performance, especially if any adversity happens, you want kids that are 100% bought in.

I hear you, except that the large majority of the kids who left played like they would run through a brick wall for CMA. Which makes all the defections that much more baffling: there was no writing on the wall with most of the kids.
