    That's an odd situation. They'll likely be in a rebuild this coming season. Him leaving sure doesn't help.

    Ellis is definitely not a D1 caliber player. Wonder if he hates Manchel's guts as much as everyone else?

    Contenders:

    IUP - The roster isn't set yet but they have a ton of talent for next season. Guards are completely loaded.
    UPJ - Just about the whole roster returns plus a key guard who was injured last season. They will be very good. NCAA expectations.
    SRU - A healthy Micah Till gives them a chance. However, they have some key pieces to replace. Grady's first class will be interesting to see.


    The TBD crowd:

    Cal - The Vulcans have a loaded freshmen class coming in and several key players returning. They should take a giant step.
    Mercyhurst - The Lakers lost two mega-stars. That's not always an easy system for imports to grasp quickly.
    Edinboro - The Scots should score a ton next season. Give up a ton, too. Coleman returns. Staunch is coming back. Still need another legit big.


    Long Season Awaits crowd:

    Seton Hill - Nathan Davis may score 45 ppg next season. He's gonna have to ...
    Clarion - Still with no coach on May 6 (and just a few players) ... could be a historically bad team.


    Need More Info:

    Gannon - Who is staying and who is coming to town? This story needs more time before making a prediction.
    you sure Staunch is back..?! He was a senior this past year... played 3 years football and 2 basketball seasons.

    Somehow he has a season of basketball remaining. I read that in an article in one of the papers up that way. In it he stated he was playing next year.

    Clarion's leading scorer last season, Khari Williams, has signed with Millersville. This is a big signing for the Mauraders, who already have 4 of their top 5 players returning next winter. Millersville was on the cusp this past season. They are going to be pretty strong next year. Williams was a very good player on a horrible team. With talent around him he may really breakout in 2019-20.

    Mason Mraz, to my knowledge, is still unsigned. Recall Mraz won (7) PSAC Freshman of the Week awards two years ago before sitting out last season with an injury. He announced his transfer shortly after the season ended.

    Clarion's other top player from last season, Elijah Cottrill, appears to still be there.

    What in the world is Clarion doing? Marcess Williams was fired on 3/6/19. It's pure speculation, but perhaps Williams is under contract through end of April or end of May, and Clarion is too cheap to have any salary overlap with a new head coach???

    During this now 2+ months delay, Clarion's best players are transferring, no recruiting is occurring, and the next head coach will be asked to work for peanuts and recruit leftovers with very few scholarships. But he will be expected to succeed?!?!

    C'mon Clarion, just issue a press release that you don't care about men's basketball.

    It's beyond embarrassing at this point.

    It would be hard to believe that Clarion cares any less about men's basketball than they do about softball and that team went 0 and 43 this season! Oh and freakin' FORTY-THREE!!!!

    Wow!!! 0-43!! Outscored 456-132. Would have been worse if not for the 15 games ended by the mercy rule.

    Outhit .403 to .238. Gave up 235 walks for a .509 on-base percentage to .305. That is staggering.

    At least Clarion finished the season. The 2016 Lincoln (Pa.) softball team lost their first six games and ultimately cancelled the rest of the season (I couldn't find any stories from that season on the LU website; sounds like they had a problem keeping enough players that season).

    But, wow, 0-43. Only two other D2 softball teams finished 2019 without a win: Livingstone (0-28) and Paine (0-21); Lemoyne-Owen came close, finishing with a 1-21 record. The three schools I just mentioned are from the SIAC.
    Cal U (Pa.) Class of 2014

    Mercyhurst has signed (PF) Melkisedek Moreaux (6'8", 195 lbs) ... although he looks pretty jacked so that weight is likely several years old. He previously played at St. Bonaventure.

    Looks like he was a deep bench guy at St. Bonaventure. He'll have one year at Mercyhurst.

    Clarion taking their good old time. Makes you wonder if it's all just about saying you have a basketball team. If so, what a waste of all that state money for Tippin.

    I was starting to wonder if they couldn't find anybody to even take the job.

    JR or KR. Easy decision. Of course, neither is going there for $49k.

    Well, most of KR's tenure at SRU he only had between 3 and 4 rides -- and he put some awfully competitive teams on the floor. I think he was a master at the 'work around' and found other ways to get those guys money. That's just talking out loud ... no clue if he even applied.

    Here's a mind bomb: Either JR or KR as head coach and the other as assistant. You'd have game officials on suicide watch by the intermission.

    Meadville's LaShawn Lindsey has signed with SRU.

    This kid can score a lot of points in a hurry. I will be curious how he will do defensively. Going to have to hit the weight room and wonder if a redshirt year is in his future As a PIAA district 9 fan we will be rooting for him for sure. And I am sure there are a lot of north central PA HS coaches glad to see him graduate!!

    So as a newbie here and the last thing I needed was another site to follow, but oh well..... my question is this.... I see a lot of not really bashing but suggestion that Mercyhurst doesn't play the most exciting of basketball. And that certainly may be the case, but looking at the scores from their games the last two seasons their offensive average isn't horrible. Again, I am new not only to this site but to PSAC basketball as well so I really don't have a clue. I just find it odd that the Chambers kid would end up at a slow it down type system as he always seemed to be a score and score a lot kind of player. I guess slow it down systems still need shooters!!!
