So - hopefully NCAA next year, then we make some noise in the tourney in two years as a veteran team with a high seed.

If we are going after Delarosa, that tells me that we are losing a big man - likely Ringer. Ringer was supposed to be physically ready to play this year but he did not do much. Not much upside there. Henry underachieved also and has to learn how to shoot before he can be a player, but he was more highly rated and comes from an area that Martin wants to recruit hard. Martin will give him another chance next year. I think that Henry got PT at the expense of Chat this year because Martin wanted to keep Henry's confidence up and he wanted to send a message that he will play first year kids. Next year, Henry needs to step it up or he will lose PT to Chat and Delarosa. Henry could also give us some size at PF if we want to go big.
No, no , no. That kind of thinking is what spurs all the 'Fire Martin' garbage as soon as we lose 3 games. That is way too big of a jump to expect to make in one year. NIT next year, probably 2, then NCAA if things go right

I think we'll be much improved next season, especially since Ty Johnson will be back. With Laimonas', Minda's and Duane's improvement and Sindarius continuing to be a force, we could win 20 games next year. There are definitely 6 games on this year's schedule that a slight bit of improvement could have turned into wins.

Tons of if's but if Thornwell stays healthy he is the type of player that when he is on his game and his teammates play in the Martin system we have a chance against anyone, the NCAA is the goal every year or why play!

I couldn't agree more. Competing for the SEC Title and making The Big Dance should be our top goals each and every year no matter what the circumstances are leading up to the season.

I think we were a lot closer to making the NIT this year than we think. If Ty didn't break his leg and we could have held on and won @ Baylor, I think the season would have ended with a tourney invite.

It's obvious we need more attrition this year. I hate to say it, but we need to get rid of the dead weight and bring in more bodies that can contribute. We need depth across the board. We have three new players committed, and I'd like to see at least two more brought in. Delarosa would be a huge get, IMO.

The staff waffled on whether they wanted to recruit Delarosa. He doesn't really fit what they want to do but I guess they are desperate for bigs.

Sounds good...

They had considered visiting next week but with the dead period approaching for the Final Four, they've decided to wait until the following weekend.The USC visit is the only one Delarosa has set at this point and his coach said they're not sure about other visits right now.

He's set to announce April 18th. Haven't found much film on him from this year but it appears he's slimmed down a bunch and gotten more nimble since his sophomore year. The Center class this year is downright good. LSU already got themselves the next Shaq...7' 322. Wish we could pull a guy like that.

Lol at University of St. Johns. Might want to get the name right before you get there, Adonis.

Maybe he's going to play his college ball in Newfoundland.

Another missed opportunity at recruiting the post. I'm not sure Delarosa was the answer to our post woes, but he would have been better than nothing, considering that we currently have zero post players in our recruiting class.

Any improvement will be no more than marginal until we tremendously upgrade the post.
