Thought this might be a fun and useful thread for those that like the topic of former Johnnies...transfers out or perhaps any Johnnie alum

I'll start...

Mikey Dixon, former Mullin era, then Grand Canyon, and now at Idaho 

Had 35 points, 8 asst, 5 reb, 5-7 from 3, and a perfect 16-16 from the FT line tonight vs. S. Dakota St.

He also had 27 pts in prior game vs. Southern Utah..

Legend out West...

I'm catching a red eye as soon as the first poster says they wish Mikey Dixon were still here so I can be there to strangle you by morning.

Sad to say but there wouldn't be much of a drop-off with Dixon as opposed to Smith and Coburn.

Maybe stretching it to call him an old friend but our former torturer Max Strus has earned a spot in a good Miami Heat team's rotation, playing 20 mpg and averaging 9 points shooting 41% from three.

Max Strus could play ! Period .  Great shooter , tough kid , worked hard .  Him playing in the NBA shows how hard it is to play in that League , if you are not a first round or high second draft choice .

Dead on.  I saw Bill at UBS.  It's incredibly easy to have a candid discussion with him, which is great.  He really missed not being at Looie's statue dedication, loves SJU to death, and was also happy Mark was inducted in the HOF.  We spoke about Mark's coaching aspirations and he was very honest about that too, offering some stuff I wasn't aware of.   Great guy.
