  1. Wiseman made the best decision for himself, congrats to him.

    Will be many of no contests for Briarcrest and Lausanne in D2. Are Wooddale's two studs mature enough to get it done against the great coaching they will encounter at the state finals? Chandler and Alvin were great help last year. Mitchell is Mitchell and they always have a chance. And as far as Region 8 AAA goes, I could see Whitehaven's "dog" outdoing Houston's length and youth.

    Cisse is supposedly trying to reclassify but it’ll be a lot of work for him to graduate in May. The roster changes in the next two years is a tough situation. The emergence of Alo and Tyler in their second year has been a great surprise to the masses, not so much to the non-casuals. I say that because no matter the talent that was on those East and EYBL squads Alex would always find himself among the top in production. And Tyler's numbers haven’t changed much from last year, he's just shown he can produce in a lesser role more efficiently. Without Lester's injury and James' eligibility, I would say it would be safe to say that Tyler may have entered the portal sometime this year also. But those guys sitting out has provided growth opportunities for the guys in their shadow if you say and shown coach that this group could work just the way it is. What makes the roster additions tough is knowing that you have two 4-year quality leaders in Lomax and Harris that are only sophomores. Baugh who is figuring the pace of the game out, Lester is solid, and Boogie is talented but not consistent (see Tyler's first go around but more talent and size). That's 5 guards that will be here on the average for at least another 2 years. Do you really want to bring Green in and stunt someone’s growth or risk a transfer for 1 year of his stardom? If Chandler emerges as the one and done type before May 2020, is it realistic that he will come join a squad that has two seniors and two juniors that can all play the point guard position also? DJ Jeffries will also be a true wing candidate after an off season of refinement so there's another variable. There's always room for talent but sometimes it comes at an expense and the Kentucky way of doing things doesn't always yield the best results. I know I’ve done a lot of ranting and this isn’t a tiger forum, but this has been on my mind since the two guys have been out. I'm interested to see how Hardaway will develop this roster with it being so young and all the promises that have been made.

    Good move. 2 years left of high school and most of the point guards will be seniors when he steps onto a campus. He's getting better and better and could go down as the best PG in his class. Dont think itll matter much but his Dad is a frat brother of Matlock and Penny's. But when you're a kid ranked as high as he will end up, its about the best opportunity to get you to the next level.

    Matthew Murrell and Kennedy Chandler finished atop the UAA and EYBL respectively. Hoop City's 16s were bounced in the final 4 of the Adidas gauntlet in a 1 pt OT loss. Memphis kids represented well this summer. Salute to the boys.

    Great guy to fill in and produce with what he has. Could see him grooming the next guy to take over the helm in a the few years.

    Chandler is my #1, kid has really gotten better over the years. And i'd take Brown then Lawson. Miller is raw. And Jackson is young. Chandler could somewhat compare to Garland when its done. Garland was a special kid that would arguably be the #2 pick had he been healthy, top 5 is still a huge blessing but i think he couldve taken some of the Ja Morant spotlight. Not saying he will be Garland but maybe his Briarcrest career will be similar to Garland at Brentwood.

    Southwind lost 6'7 big Kameron Jones and veteran pg Ashton Smith. I know Edwards loses alot year in and out and gets a squad together every time, but i think Houston is the team that should take the next step. Very young and long team. I wonder how scarce Whitehaven will be next year. I know alot of the core kids their followed Phillips to whitehaven, and I've seen Jesse Payne playing with Trezvant this summer so i wonder how it will look next year. But then again its the summer. I saw a kid play with 2 different schools one summer and was enrolled elsewhere when August came. Also remember the summer before Wiseman came to town East had all the star players that won the championship at Hamilton two years ago on the squad. Summer is crazy sometimes.
  10. If this does happen, will suck for Alvin Miles. No way he can transfer from whitehaven to his neighborhood school woodale and then go back because his new coach heads to his old school. If this plays out I think he will end up at East to be their pg for a year. Just like you said, they will find a way for him to be eligible.
  11. Expect the Whitehaven job to be officially open very soon whenever Vanderbuilt announces the hiring of Faragi Phillips. Putting my money on Keelon Lawson filling that role.
  12. Coach Kevin Starks left to join Hubie Smith at Brentwood if im not mistaken. Maybe a move towards Hubie's replacement on the down the road. Hubie is also a Harding graduate so there has to be some connection there.
