    Did we hire two new basketball coaches??
    So, Elkins is officially gone. Right?

    I can't remember if another assistant was added. The new Associate Coach worked with Happy for seven seasons at Georgetown. He came to KWC from Valdosta State. He helped Valdosta. Happy likes a large staff. I like that.

    So I was surfing Twitter looking at incoming players posts. I found a retweet from a kid by the name of Erik Bell that said he is transferring to KWC to play for Happy. Another guard 5-9? Really Happy????

    The Panther Athletic Fund raised $200,000 this past season. New score boards have been installed for baseball, softball, volleyball and soccer. The soccer field has also gotten new lighting. The college hired a full time men's and women's golf coach. New upgrades to the hitting facilities for the softball and baseball teams were also completed.

    In addition to the work already completed at the Sportscenter, a new Digital Scoring Table along with new refinishing of the basketball court will be added

    The Panther Athletic Fund is going to do well.

    Transferring from D3 so I would bet he's on academic scholarship, not athletic.

    Why would Happy take a kid that led the state of Indiana in Assist? Three years is not bad and I suspect he has friends that may follow.

    I am pretty sure a 6' 10" was on campus this week. A one star or less but tall and well coached.

    I still say we are missing a scoring wing

    We can lay off Happy now. I have. It's time to get behind him. Everything is going to be fine.

    The current athletic department is definitely headed in the right direction. The administrative growth in the athletic department will pay good dividends. I really feel the athletic department is poising itself for the next four years.

    USI attendance was ranked #17. KWC was right behind them at #18. The numbers were almost identical.

    Wesleyan's attendance will go up this season due to conference expansion. Wesleyan can do better than 1,400 a game. The Sportscenter will be spiffed up this season as well. That will help raise attendance. However, local television news coverage seems minimal. I think KWC basketball should record a great commercial video and recruit local businesses to sponsor the commercials.

    Thats pretty sad because USI attendance was horrid. Just goes to show nobody wants to see the products being put on the floor. I remember when KWC was averaging 3000+ a game and USI was over 2000.

    #17 and #18 is not bad. There are over 300 programs in D2. Wesleyan could easily be in the top 10 this season.

    Or, it goes to show that attendance has dropped everywhere in D2 (which we've been saying for years) and your attendance really wasn't nearly as bad as you guys like to whine about it being.

    I think it's sad that such a storied program, the best in Division II history, would be behind us considering our attendance is dropping like a freaking rock!

    Really appreciate your negativity and overall disgruntled attitude toward everything D2.

    Wesleyan could do better attendance wise, we know that. The truth is Wesleyan leaving the GLVC hurt that conference in men's basketball, probably baseball as well. It also hurt KWC in basketball. That's a fact, but the move was worth it.

    Bellarmine and USI should schedule home and away games every season with KWC, or at least rotate each year. That needs to get done and everyone act like adults in the process, especially the coaches from all three teams. That is the Wesleyan Way! Leave your petty grievances behind and help all three teams every year.

    I want to see the inside of the Sportscenter. It has already gotten a crucial project done and more work in the arena were the two most crucial improvements. A refinished court will obviously make a big difference with a digital Scoring Table that further lights up the court. I bet they keep working on it. Somebody may want the Owensboro Sportscenter on CBS.

    Saw something else on Twitter related to KWC Basketball, Willie Patterson , from Indianapolis has committed to KWC. Anyone aware of him?
