    Default LSC Men's Basketball

    WT started the season off yesterday with a 68-62 OT win against Drury in Anaheim, Ca. Drury is a #2 pick in the GLVC behind NABC national #1 pick Bellarmine. Buffs play Lindenwold and Concordia, Ca today and tomorrow.

    This season should be very interesting. Can WT reload now that Chavlovich and Evans are gone to pro leagues in Europe? Is Commerce going to be as good as everyone says. Can Lonnie Jr do it on his own? Can the new guy at UTPB win without street thugs? Who else went out and recruited some real deals? Who will surprise? Eastern, Kingsville, Cameron, Angelo?

    Austin Grandstaff at Commerce has the talent to take over the conference if he can put it it all together. Was the sixth best player in Texas coming out of Rockwall, and one of the best shooters I've ever seen. He's one of those guys that are within range as soon as he crosses half court.

    Transferred around from Ohio State to OU to DePaul, so the paperwork might be tricky but he's going to be fun to watch. He's one of five really good recruits we got this season.

    That's why the preseason #1 pick. Where's Grandstaff's next stop.....Our Lady of the Lakes? We've seen this stuff before. Sometimes they work out, sometimes a big bust because they're head cases not interested in TEAM. I guess the coaches at Ohio State, OU, and DePaul just weren't the right fit for him.

    Buffs hung on to beat Lindenwood 65-62. Down by 15 at the 7:43 mark in the first half, WT went into the dressing room behind 37-30 Buffs only made 1/13 threes in the first half. Finally, they started clicking in the second with 7 threes. Freshman Qua Grant led WT in scoring with 17.

    Hence why I said 'if he can pull it all together.". The problem isnt him, unfortunately. I'll leave it at that

    One of "those" Dads, huh? I read all of Wes' comments when sonny boy left Ohio State......and Oklahoma......and DePaul. The Commerce coach should bar Dad from attending practices and games. Period.

    Tarleton got a 78-76 win in their first game at the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame Classic in St. Joseph, Missouri. They knocked off Missouri Western in a “neutral” site game 6 miles from the Missouri Western campus. Great way to start the season, and Congratulations to first year Head Coach Chris Reisman on his first career win.

    Where was Missouri Western picked in the MIAA preseason poll?

    Never mind. I just checked. Missouri Western was picked dead last of 14 teams in the MIAA.

    Tarleton is playing William Jewel today in Missouri. One of the officials is Nate Gammet(?), who was the head men’s basketball coach at Cameron a few years ago.

    That's a BIG statement. Hmmmm.

    Are you saying the best shooter coming out of Rockwall or truly the best you've EVER seen??

    WT Buffs won their third in a row today, beating Concordia-Irvine, 65-57, in the D2CCA Tip-Off Classic. Freshman guard Qua Grant again led scoring with 14 points. Freshman PG JoJo Murray added 9 and had 7 assists. Buffs still are shooting for crap. Only went 5/25 from three point land. That won't get it done. For Brown's offense to really be effective, the guys need as a team to shoot at least 33% from outside.

    Drury and Concordia won 21 last year. Lindenwood 17. All three returned much more experience than WT. The Buffs next game is on the road Nov 9 at Western State, Gunnison. RMAC teams are always tough on the road.

    I m excited about this season. Lots of senior leadership, some great transfers, and we have a coach that cut his teeth playing in Connecticut. The play a different brand of ball up there and I think it will transfer well to the LSC. He is the equivalent of the hiring of Colby for football. I expect this program to rise quickly and sustain it.

    Best shooter you have EVER seen!

    Curry, Allen, Kerr, Bird, Korver??? No, it's Grandstaff.

    Ok.

    If he's that good, think of the ACU HC who lit it up for a few years, Grant McCasland, who boogied for the top asst job at Baylor at $300,000 plus a year. Ot the ASU guy who recruited a bunch of "questionable" recruits, won big for two years at Angelo, spent a year at Little Rock and is now pulling down $800,000 at Texas Tech. That was the plan of the ex-UTPB guy. It didn't work out for him too well. We'll see how Commerce handles the 5 D1/7 Juco transfer circus. Long term. It could be Knucklehead City. Or not. Roll the dice.

    If he's that good, he won't be around for long. Think of the ACU coach 9 or 10n years ago, who lit it up and boogied

    If someone moves on and leaves your program better than they found it then you thank them for their hard work... and early returns are good.

    I agree about that. WT Lady Buffs have done exactly that. Bob Schneider wins 500 plus games in 20 years. Followed by Krista Gerlich for 5 years, who's moved on to a successful run at UT Arlington. Followed by super duper Mark Kellogg, who moves on to Stephen F (and I predict this will be his last year before a move to a Big Time D1), followed by Kristen Mattio, who's had WT in 2 Elite 8's and 2 Sweet 16 finals in four years.

    When they go the JUCO route, how are they leaving the program better than they found it? Look at UTPB for example.....
