    Joe on Dancsecs when he signed him:

    "He's a proven big-time shooter at the international level, and we also feel he can give us depth at the point guard position. Sometimes the transition to the American game takes a little time, but we believe he has a great four-year career ahead of him."

    Yeah, you could see where Joe thought all those things BUT when you put him next to Foster, Miller, Lombardi, etc, you could see defensively he wasn't close. The game was just to fast for him.

    It wasn't a major investment. I think he got a few bucks. Maybe a quarter ride. Worth a shot. He was a summer add. Only so many spots. I'd guess he wasn't invited back.

    I think he can play at this level but not here.

    It was clear when they chose not to redshirt him he'd be in and out fast. You don't waste a year playing the final 30 seconds of games if you're in the future plans.

    The kid they did redshirt was Alan Glover Jr. He's a big boy -- about 6'5" and 230 lbs. He's pretty ripped. I think Tort would love him. He was a walk-on last season. He looks like he could be a nasty TE or DE.

    You are correct. For some reason I thought she was a senior. They are going to again be pretty strong next year. Well, actually, the next several years.

    Her brother Joe Mascaro was a senior on the Pitt basketball team this past season. He got to start in the final game of the season at home against Notre Dame.

    They both played high school ball at Bethel Park.

    Next year got a whole lot better looking today with Morris Jr. signing.

    That is going to be one heck of a guard trio next year -- Malik Miller, Armoni Foster and Morris Jr. Add to it incoming PG Bryce Radford and SG K.J. Rhodes, along with returning junior guard Anthony White ... That is a deep rotation.


    MoTown to Indiana. Love it.

    With Chucky and Ulrich back underneath, it's a good start down low. I sure hope Keyes is finally in the picture. Ethan Porterfield will also be in the mix. I still think he'll add one transfer big. They will be pretty deep next year.
    It's almost as if IUP's recruits visit on April weekends when it's really warm, the youths are out all day chillaxing/day-longing as they get to pal around with the basketball players (who are some of the most-popular students on campus). The "Hawk Family" vibe is real...yes, IUPatty's and events like that are not exactly good press for the university, but for a 20-something looking to have fun and play extremely high-level basketball? That's a sell. (Oh, and the male/female demographics probably don't hurt either if you're a recruit, either.)

    LOL ... yeah. Say what you will about the academics, etc., but IUP is Ivy League when it comes to the ladies on campus. Always has been.

    I think we know by now that Joe only wants to play four of those guards with a fifth dressed in case of emergency. I’d guess White is, at worst, that 5th guy again leaving Radford and Rhodes to battle to see who gets redshirted.

    I was thinking about that today. I kind of think we may see a different Joe next year. He's going to have a ton of speed in that guard group.

    Bryce and KJ will be ready to play immediately in smaller roles. White is abnice defensive pest.

    But ... only so many minutes.
