Neither Chartouny or Hicks will be on the team in 18-19.

Article from Zagoria on Donatas Kupsas recruitment.

http://www.zagsblog.com/2017/12/13/2018-forward-donatas-kupsas-talks-recent-official-visits/

On his visit to Fordham

“It went great. Fordham is a great place and it’s close to Manhattan,” said Kupšas. “It’s in New York, close to my high school and my friends are out here. It’s also a high academic school with great basketball.”

Encouraging. The comments from RAM71 are very specific. Those comments are usually reserved for post-commitment...Sounds like he has a coach in his ear nudging him to Rose Hill.

What country?

Jericho.
4  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Fordham vs. Florida A&M - PreGame/InGame 12/21, 7pm on: December 13, 2017, 01:18:49 pm
As drunkel stated in the Rutgers thread "this should be a doozy"

A&M comes in at 1-11 (with 10 of those games on the road) with L's to national powers Green Bay and Grand Canyon.
Mississippi State, Miami, and UNLV all took a sledgehammer to them, non-competitive results.

Outside of Marcus Barham (16ppg, 35% 3-pt), they really struggle to score. They seem to have no legitimate perimeter threat, I wonder if speeding them up is the way to go? How effective can they be in the half-court  Huh?

Head Coach Robert McCullum spent three years at Western Michigan, four years at South Florida, and was an assistant under Paul Hewitt (Frank's HC choice) at Georgia Tech. Nearly the entire A&M roster is from Florida/Georgia.

They play Thursday evening at Southern, and Sunday afternoon at Georgia Tech, 4pm on ESPNU.

I'll admit they don't look like happy campers.  

That's what I see, from afar.

How is Depaul lateral? The Big East is a different level than the A-10.

You're right, Big East is a different level - but that doesn't mean the majority of players on DePaul's roster are Big East caliber. A few would be, just as a few of Fordham's are A10 level. Not enough are. Is Portley? Hope so. Is Gazi? Doubtful.

I'll bring up Rhoomes for a reason other than his inside presence... His emotional presence and leadership was so important. We don't have anyone like that on the team right now. Its a major void and its going to cost us games.

It's a great point.

Going back to chemistry, there seems to be a very low rating for this team's propensity to band together. I am not involved, but my take is that they do not like each other.

what is most disheartening about this type of result...

1. Down by 18 at the under 8, the sentiment is "Rutgers isn't that good, we're almost right there!' - No, we are not.

2. Rutgers isn't good - and they are running this drill at 70% , the outcome never in doubt, it's a warmup.

Give Downing a couple of minutes if only to dish out some hard fouls

Down 9, not 29, don't need to find yourself in the penalty (yet)

If it helps him shoot, I don't care if he wears a lace garter.

Post of the Year consideration

I hope we get a surprise win, but my gut tells me we're gonna get smoked . . .

I completely agree. Smoke Show.
12  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham @ Rutgers PreGame/InGame - 12/12, 7:00pm on: December 11, 2017, 12:17:04 pm
Perhaps a misprint but NY Post shows Rutgers 101 Fairleigh Dickinson 35.  If accurate we could be in for a disaster.

Not sure what you see. Score was 92-54. Bottom line, they could have named the score.
13  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Fordham @ Rutgers PreGame/InGame - 12/12, 7:00pm on: December 09, 2017, 06:04:54 pm
Myles Johnson has not appeared in a game. Can he shift to us in exchange for a free parking pass to MetLife Stadium? At least Myles Mack isn't there anymore...

Some strange results - beating CCST by only 4, losing to FSU by 5, losing to Michigan St by 10, beating NJIT by only 9...would assume they played a lot of bench minutes against the lower level competition.

This should get ugly.

We constantly take the foot off the gas. We can’t do that. No killer instinct on the team.

Would require having any sort of instinct first  Wink
15  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 09, 2017, 03:19:54 pm
Stream is working. And there are 53 people in the gym.
16  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 09, 2017, 12:39:51 pm
Rams 73
Pooches 56
Snow on Rose Hill at game time 2.3 inches

I had 73-59 above, we’re seeing the same game.

Who do you see breaking through offensively for our 73 side?
17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 09, 2017, 12:29:14 pm
In Vooter's defense, he only included a link. I converted it to an image without realizing how big it would be. I converted it back to just a link to the image.

good job.
18  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 09, 2017, 12:11:54 pm
St. Francis game thread and we have photos of the Loyola gym.  Huh?

This board has become (always was?) an extension of Dagger Johns degenerate haven.

As for today's "crowd" it would have been empty regardless. Go win the game convincingly. They should. They have to.
19  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 08, 2017, 10:05:40 am
At halftime, perhaps Jalen Jordan will want to tour around campus. 45% 3-pt, 3 years of eligibility after the year. Region 2 5A POY. Time well spent on a Saturday afternoon.

Not to get off topic, but another player that was a complete miss at Fordham, but did just fine elsewhere (albeit it a lower level) is Jeff Short. I believe he ended up with an NCAA appearance at Norfolk State, averaged 19 ppg his junior year, 16 ppg as a senior - and shot it well too.
21  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 07, 2017, 01:09:23 pm
and again, I'm not just looking for a bs 7-point victory. As I alluded to in starting the thread, need to see huge gains from some of the big question marks. Can't have a 2-man lineup, need 5+ guys giving us something.

Raut is 3/16 over our last three games. Right now, he's probably the third best scoring option. Need to see him fill it against an inferior team. Perris Hicks was a non-factor last night, 10 minutes and zero's. It's now or never. Evans with just 6 shot attempts last night, 4 the previous game over 32 minutes. That's difficult to believe. If he's going to break out of it, he'll need to attack the rim and build his confidence at the line. and is there anything, at all, in Pekarek?

Fordham 73
St. Francis 59

But I wouldn't bet on it.
22  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Fordham vs. St. Francis - PreGame/InGame 12/9, 3pm on: December 07, 2017, 11:07:43 am
Once you're able to separate from the Harvard hellhole thread, join us.

St. Francis is pure dogsh*t. They played Manhattan OT in November, and lost to Duquesne by 10.

After seeing the Maine result, anything is possible.

Need more than just a victory - need to see players aside from Slanina or Tavares take control and assert. Otherwise, we can't be competitive outside of Florida A&M.

Need something to look forward to for league play.
23  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 07, 2017, 07:37:18 am
No good assistant with the hope of moving up the ladder would take the Fordham job.  It's a career killer.  JN is finding that out now.

Stop

I don't disagree overall, but I still think he is the best coach we have had since Macarchuk. Not saying much, but why is it that we also have not gotten better coaches apply for the job either?

Lets go through it for a moment.

Hill - 10 year contract, NBA resume, name recognition, keys to the car and then some. On talent alone, assumption was that we would be respectable (at minimum), with upside as a perennial postseason program. what ensued was unthinkable.

DW - NC State tournament history, Diversity, Wagner tournament appearance, hot name, apparently had no idea what was behind the curtain.

Pecora - Local guy, Hofstra tournament resume, prime of coaching career, NY/NYC recruiting contacts. logical that he would have success.
25  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 09:26:54 pm
Unfortunately, Slanina is as good as we have - and that's not even close to good enough. He's a starter. He's one piece. You need 6 to compete. 8 to be formidable.

*not to detract from Tavares, who has been good. My point is that Slanina's skill-set is unique. He grades above average within the A10. I'm not sure Tavares is a "plus" starter. Chartouny is not cutting it, he's below average right now. So, 2 players above average. Need 6-8.

Fordham’s basketball world is flat.
27  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 01:23:29 pm
We are way overthinking small sample sizes. I agree some of the numbers are mind boggling but let's see where we net out.

Agreed. Talk about on January 6, not December 6. Lets go.
28  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Men's Basketball / Re: Harvard @ Fordham Pregame/In-game 12/6/17 7PM on: December 06, 2017, 10:34:20 am
Evans had numerous in rhythm open threes and literally missed them all.  He’s taken the ball to the basket and not finished most of the time.  His offensive woes have nothing to do with the system.  Very concerning he looks over matched right now.  Maybe he adjusts as the season goes on but other than the ets game where he got to the line 10 times his offense has been atrocious.

but...as 85, pointed out, nice haircut - and that is just as important for social media purposes in 2018.

I'm confident he will turn it around, three more shares of tre.

Opening Harvard -1.5. McShane is moving the line.

Good info you have been on this one since day 1.

Yes he has. Hope it goes down, need it.
