    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    IMO I think he would've been good, not great. I think the beaurocratic/administrative side of college basketball would have driven him crazy. I've seen his coaching clinic spiel twice and spoken to him a handful of times on other occasions. He always struck me as being a mentor first second and...

    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    I seem to have attracted the ire of the outcasts of the yard today. It's really fascinating when basketball fundamentals and coaching come up in non-coaching circles. Some things like a dip are basically a given for all but the most old school coaches. I probably shouldn't bite on the trolling...

    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    I am telling you full stop that the best shooting coaches on the planet do not have players at any level unlearn a dip. In fact, building from the ground up they will teach it. Most guys I know of teach a dip when wide open, and to shorten it under pressure. How many shooting coaches have you...

    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    You can learn and forget whatever you want, doesn't mean any of it was right to begin with. The guys I've learned from listed above (with the exception of KO) have more basketball knowledge than both of us combined jammed in one of their fingernails. Bob Hurley Sr. has always struck me as a...

    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    You do realize whether or not dipping a basketball is a good thing has nothing to do with how much time one has spent around UConn basketball players right? I have learned that in person from amongg many others Bob Hurley Sr., the shooting coach for the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, the Dematha...

    2021 Recruiting: Rodney Rice

    What is with you old farts and thinking dipping the basketball is a bad thing? It's like you don't even watch the players you claim are elite shooters. The best shooters on the planet dip--the best of the best adjust their dip depending on how much time they have to shoot. It's used to find...

    Three four-star recruits in 15 days for UConn, all recruited by different assistant coaches

    Not sure exactly where to put this, but... Finally got around to watching the 7OT game. GREAT game. Rashool fouled out in the second OT, so this is from about 35 minutes of play. Definitely looked like the best player on the court today. Roach/Keels each had 30 points, but also played 20+...

    2021 Recruiting: Samson Johnson to UConn

    Yes! This was the comp I haven't been able to put my finger on. Johnson is probably an inch taller, and slightly better built/more athletic at the same stage. Boucher definitely had a more refined post move package and maybe a better BBQ. Nice memory though... haven't hard of Boucher in years...

    Three four-star recruits in 15 days for UConn, all recruited by different assistant coaches

    Don't technically have to wait I believe, though it would obviously be harder to convince a recruit to come when no spot is available yet. Seems like our coaches aren't interested in that though.

    Three four-star recruits in 15 days for UConn, all recruited by different assistant coaches

    "But the Huskies aren’t totally done recruiting for that class. James Bouknight would appear highly likely to declare for the 2021 NBA Draft, so UConn will continue to look for players....Bouknight’s decision wouldn’t come until after this upcoming season (if it’s played), and most of the top...

    2021 Recruiting: Samson Johnson to UConn

    11 PTS 1 REB AST 1 TO 3 STL 1 BLK He is really bad at playing in a zone. Both times I’ve seen it he doesn’t really get where to rotate… it’s a good thing we’re a man team. The two future UConn commits had 35/54 points for TPS. The Patrick School (NJ) vs IMG Academy (FL) - HoopHall Classic -...

    4 PTS 2 REB AST 1 STL 3 BLK He only played about 15 mins this game. I assume foul trouble, but it’s hard to know since it’s just highlights of the scoring plays. Luhi is exceptionally well coached. INTENSE NY/NJ tilt! Noah and Jon lead The Patrick School against Andre Curbelo and LuHi! Big...

    2021 Recruiting: Samson Johnson to UConn

    Huntington Prep is a VERY good team and TPS was finally at full strength (no Sanogo or Kuminga until this tournament) so this was a good test for Johnson and how he could fit in on a talented UConn team. Note: He sat the whole 2nd quarter and came back wearing #25 in the 3rd, so be aware of...

    I don’t recommend watching this one. Johnson was only on the floor maybe 15 minutes, and his team was holding the ball for 5:17 of them. 6 PTS 2 REB 0 AST (2 potential/foul) 0 TO 0 STL 3 BLK 0/0 2FG 2/2 3FG 0/0 FT Two fouls in the first minute of the first half and sat the rest, then his...

    2021 Recruiting: Samson Johnson to UConn

    I have heard Kenya will be the first to leave for a head coaching job, assuming Tom will stay and retire here with Hurley. Kimani even describes himself as an aau coach that happens to be at UConn (or something to that effect).

    Clingan 7'2"

    You're asking for a counter-argument for something that can't be proven. The best evidence you can get about a recruit's ability is their offers, but you refuse to acknowledge that piece... because it pretty much disrupts any notion he isn't a high-major player. On the plus side, you're getting...

    Something that everyone (even those that love Donovan's game) seems to be doing is treating Donovan like a "normal" recruit...which he is not. He's already 6 inches taller and 30lbs heavier than our starting center, and he's the age of a 2023. There's a good chance he shows up on campus 7'3 260+...

    2021 Recruiting: Jordan Hawkins Commits to UConn

    Hurley Zoom Call 8/3

    True. I'm just getting at the fact that we have 2 senior Cs, Sanogo and potentially Springs ahead of Javonte Brown Ferguson right now. He's also a year young for this class... so a redshirt might make sense if the staff thinks hes a 4 year guy.

    Hurley Zoom Call 8/3

    I watched maybe 3-4 of his games at Thorlea and personally think that he's closer to a redshirt candidate than earning significant minutes. Judging performance of 7-footers is not something I can really attest to that well though. If he is getting minutes, it means he has REALLY dedicated...

    Hurley Zoom Call 8/3

    The quote posted earlier about Javonte Brown Ferguson from Amore was kind of misleading. Not as positive of an assessment as I thought it was initially. Sounds like Hurley is hedging his bets regarding immediate availability for playing time to me. “He’s exactly what we hoped he’d be,” Hurley said, “a 7-footer...
