Didn't know that GU had a club team. They actually play NIC (http://nic.edu/athletics/index.asp?area=Men's Basketball&season=2010&subArea=schedule) twice this season. The team (http://www.gonzagabulletin.com/sports/club-basketball-jump-starts-season-with-mixer-1.1092797) seems to contain some decent former high school players. Should be a couple blowouts for NIC, though. My reasoning is not just based on NIÇ's perceived superior talent, but also the fact that the club team does not seem to have a coaching staff nor the benefit of daily practices. Still, must be a blast for these guys to be able to play a top notch junior college team such as NIC in regular college season games. If one of the club players has a couple of superior games against a legit opponent, it might enable him to catch the attention of the GU coaching staff and thereby gain an advantage to make the varsity GU team as a walk-on. Does anybody know if they beat the ex-GU players city league team by the way?

There is this one kid that I played pickup with that shoots the lights out. Obviously not a D1 calibur player with the rest of his game but I think he hit like 20-25 3s and most were from nba range...it was crazy. If he is on the team they atleast will have good shooters.

Man, I would have loved this when I was at GU. When did this get put in place?

The team was started last year by two guys who graduated in may. I always saw them practicing early in the morning and sometimes in the evening. It is a student run team so i think the coaches are students as well but might have changed now. seems like a great idea for all the basketball enthusiasts who arent at D1 calibur but are also looking for more than just a pick up game.
