Wow, that's a lot of Americans on a Canadian University roster, but since its the only NCAA school in Canada, that may have something to do with it

I know it may be too early to answer this question, but does anyone know if this game is going to be on television? Is anyone planning on streaming this game?

It has been a long off-season and I am looking forward to seeing this years team in action.

My understanding is that they could only play in the scrimmage, not in any games exhibition or otherwise.

I expect a good game with Simon Frazier. They have a senior dominated team with a couple of good scorers in 6' 4" Taylor Dunn and David Cebru. Cebru is a 6' 9" senior from Rainier High in Seattle. Dunn is from Vancouver, WA. Maybe some of our fans here know these two kids. They have a 3rd player Elijah Mathews a 6' 1" from Washington DC who is also capable of scoring in double figures. I don't expect SF to slow it down. I think they will be a perfect foe for Gonzaga who will try to run up and down the court with us.

I expect Pk to have a good game with SF. I am also expecting Coleman to look better then he did last weekend. It will be fun for fans who get to see this game. Personally, I expect that the scrimmage in Kraziness in the Kennel was tougher then this game with SF will be.

Guy Landry Edi played in an exhibition game back in 2011-12 when he wasn't eligible until mid-December of that season, so I would think Nunez could play.

Guy Landry Edi played in an exhibition game back in 2011-12 when he wasn't eligible until mid-December of that season, so I would think Nunez could play.

Edi was sitting through December due to a NCAA amateurism suspension, not because he was fulfilling transfer requirements. I believe a player with a more similar situation to Kyle and Angel would be Gerard Coleman last year, who didn't play in the exhibition against NW Nazarene (http://www.gozags.com//ViewContent.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=26400&CONTENT_ID=247173).

My interpretation of the rules is that Kyle & Angel are still completing their required academic year of residence and are ineligible for intercollegiate competition at this time. http://i.imgur.com/qmUMpbr.gif

From the 2013-2014 NCAA DI Manual (http://www.ncaapublications.com/productdownloads/D114.pdf):


14.5.5.1 General Rule. A transfer student from a four-year institution shall not be eligible for intercollegiate competition at a member institution until the student has fulfilled a residence requirement of one full academic year (two full semesters or three full quarters) at the certifying institution. (Revised: 1/10/91 effective 8/1/91, 4/14/10)


14.02.9 Intercollegiate Competition. Intercollegiate competition occurs when a student-athlete in either a two-year or a four-year collegiate institution: (Revised: 1/10/95)

(a) Represents the institution in any contest against outside competition, regardless of how the competition is classified (e.g., scrimmage, exhibition or joint practice session with another institutionís team) or whether the student is enrolled in a minimum full-time program of studies; (Revised: 1/10/91)


14.02.15 Residence. Residence is enrollment in a full-time academic program (as defined by the institution) at a collegiate institution during a regular term of an academic year. A summer term may not be used to satisfy an academic term of residence. Any student-athlete (e.g., qualifier, nonqualifier, transfer student) admitted after the 12th class day may not use that semester or quarter for the purpose of satisfying an academic term or year of residence. (Revised: 4/14/10)

14.02.15.1 Academic Year of Residence. To satisfy an academic year of residence, a student shall: (Revised:4/14/10, 5/14/13)
(a) Be enrolled in and complete a minimum full-time program of studies for two full semesters or three full
quarters; or
(b) Be enrolled in a minimum full-time program of studies for two semesters or three quarters and pass a
number of hours (including hours earned at the certifying institution during a summer term) that is at
least equal to the sum total of the minimum load of each of the required terms.

I saw Staudacher play a couple of times in hs. Made the state tourney final 8 his last year with Darien Nelson-Henry (Penn). Staudacher can really shoot it from 3; scored over 20 in at least one game at State if memory serves. Brother Ryan played at Montana, but Ryan is 6'4 and Matt a shade under 6' if memory serves with average quickness at best, hence a typical D2 guard. Started as a soph on a pretty good LW team, so he can play.

the Lewis & Clark game wasn't an exhibition game, just a game against a DII school during the regular season

Last year, Root Sports NW did not pick up the Northwest Nazarene exhibition game and same went for the Carroll College exhibition game in 2011

As a Can-American (or is it AmeriCan-Can?), I was surprised to hear that SF was an NCAA aligned school. I have always wondered what was stopping some of the bigger schools - UBC, Univ Toronto, McGill, etc from playing across the border.

It is my understanding that Canadian schools do not give athletic schollies - which explains why at any given time the hockey line-up at Michigan is stuffed with guys with "Sask" and "Ont" after their hometowns.

Anyway, glad to see some WA kids will be playing. Thanks for the info Reborn and Maynard.

Season can't start soon enough as far as I am concerned, talk can shift from rebounding in march of 2015 to rebounding last night.

DII schools give schollies, SFU is DII. CIS (The Canadian equivalent of the NCAA doesn't do scholarships, although that's slowly changing). UBC almost went NCAA a few years ago, but changed their minds. As of now SFU is the only Canadian NCAA school.

Canadian universities are run by pretentious snobs that look down on the NCAA and think sports* is incompatible with, and undesired in, the world of academia. UBC had a lot of good people pushing for NCAA admission, but they were ultimately shut down by the board because the board thought it was not in accordance with the school's mission (among other things). I don't know how these people reconcile this foolish belief in light of schools like UCLA, Stanford, UW, Duke, Notre Dame, et al.

Fortunately, schools like SFU think differently and hopefully they will be a success so that other Canadian schools can get in the best athletic developmental program in history. There's a reason Canada has such poor showings in the Summer Olympics, and it's directly attributed to (a) the weather and (b) the nation's poor developmental system.

*And by sports I mean the commercialized, semi-pro** American college model, as opposed to the Canadian, low budget "amateur collegiate" model.

**Yes, they don't get paid but the NCAA is not an amateur league in the true sense. Maybe the Ivy League is.

7 days. What do you hope to see? I really want to see PK in action against other competition. Not sure SFU will provide a lot of pressure for him, but I'm looking forward to see his improvement and if the sportswriters are correct in saying this year is a "blow up year."

One thing that I also am really looking forward to see this year also is how Sam does in a starting role. We'll see that Friday. Big difference from his previously roles off the bench.

Well, i'm not up there but I have no trouble imagining the first argument of yours regarding snobbery, links up well with Ivy League schools also being "above it" - I would like it if more thought openly about it. I like how many interests the US/Can share and I would think international comp would be cool. Good for SFU and cool to see WA kids be the ones to take advantage of it.

Carleton University, located in Ottawa, Ontario, has the talent to play major conference NCAA basketball right now. In August, the Ravens beat Wisconsin and lost in overtime to Syracuse. Not bad for a team with zero scholarship players.
