    Maybe Kuhse will finally get a schollie this year. He's started 46 games the last 2 years but is still a walk-on.

    Smile Gaels' fortunes have taken some big hits.

    Thanks, ZagsGoZags. I missed that info but found it later. My opinion on next year's Gaels is in the minority, obviously, but I like a lot of their players. Bowen and Ducas are/were freshmen Aussie recruits. In an early-season broadcast (forget which/who), one of the announcers praised these two for their potential, which I (not an expert) saw in various games. (They aren't the stud freshmen the Zags now recruit but, IMO, like some of our past recruits who worked themselves into valuable roles by their junior/senior seasons.). I also like New Zealander Dan Fotu (sophomore). He seems skilled & savvy to me, but is smallish vs. GU's bigs. Finally, Tass (starting center) was graded somewhere a 4* player (saw the site, forget which again). He was a sophomore this year with great opportunity to boost his skills till the season-ender injury. Now apparently, given info elsewhere about an iffy recovery, Tass may not be available next season (or part of it).

    Finally, with Malik going pro, Randy Bennett's gonna have his hands full fielding a team worthy of SMC's rep. Really like Bennett & the Gaels. Hoping for a miracle to replace their lost/injured talent.

    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    totally agree with you Kidwell,
    if the zags were a so so team, SMC would be the amazing improbability of a small college, high school type gym, recruiting players nobody ever heard of, and graduating many players like jock (center about 4 years ago), patty mills, delavedova, ford, etc. that go on. Gaels gets national rankings over and over, whose coach probably is about 70th in NCAA D1 in salary. The better they have become, unfortunately for them we have too. They have had to chase us into the top 10 to continue to be the junior achiever from the WCC.
    Bennett in spite of a dour look on his face sometimes, certainly gets the love and respect from his players, and obviously is a master of X's and O's in tactics and understanding the slow game is best suited against us, but can speed his team up when that is a better match up against somebody else.
    Hasn't he gotten better about the handshakes at the end of games (esp. with Mark Few) these days?

    Matthias Taas will be back and they will have the POY from Washington, Jabe Mullins (that kid is legit).
    It will be interesting, but I am not betting against Randy Bennet. Granted, the league will not be as strong as this year, but there will be some good teams.

    From what I am reading Tass will be back at some point, but not by the start of the season. We shall see.

    Funny to read some of the SMC doubters who again try to tell the world that SMC sucks, gozag####(sp?). You do NOT know what you're talking about !!

    To the more enlightened posters here, you are 100% correct. RB will put a decent/good team on the floor that will get better and better. Got a 7'4" center that I believe was recently recruited by GU (?). Incoming recruiting class will be very good now and in time.

    Please, just stop the hyperbole some of you. Prefaced some of your comments with "I think perhaps" rather than "emphatically" tell us your uninformed version of the basketball world.

    To you great posters here, be safe (actually ALL of you), be healthy and remember, David can occasionally get a win.

    Congrats Don. Was on your board earlier this afternoon, before news of Matt hit. Yes, GU did recruit him & he attended a game in the Kennel (BYU, IIRC).

    Most here know that Randy is a terrific Coach. Think you guys obviously slip a bit with Jordan & Malik leaving, but the Gaels will find a way.

    I believe the majority of the fans on this site agree that we want Saint Marys to be as good as possible ---we hope that Randy will field a good team. The better that St Marys is only helps the Zags record and metrics when it comes to seeding in the dance.

    Maybe it's just me BUT I also hope that BYU can regroup and put a decent team together as well...we need SMC and BYU to do well in OOC...BOTH of their success will increase our metrics along with UOP and PP...we want our top five to have an excellent season, which will make the WCC look better on paper...Hoping SMC can schedule as well as they did last season, win most of those games and advance to the Dance in March

    LOL - so you're only a "good poster" here if you post what you want to hear? I THINK PERHAPS, MOST DEFINITELY that SMC is going to be bad next year. You lost your best 2 players and you weren't very good this year. You lost 5 WCC games, which would have been 6 had Childs been healthy. I think RB is a good coach, and he'll make your team better than it would be with another coach, but your roster isn't very good.

    This isn't "uninformed". I watch as much if not more college hoops than you, and I watch the Gaels quite a bit. You're just a fan, I'm not.

    Just me but if they weren’t very good this year but were going to be a 7-9 seed in the Big Dance I’m not really sure what good is then lol

    OOC uncertain for all D-1 teams. Hurts mid-majors, WCC, and GU most.

    Didn't SMC have a center that was hurt?

    Maybe he wants some starting PT.
