iPhone : #BlackLivesMatter  + I’m sickened by the constant + continual systemic inequality + injustice black people have endured in America. A silent white person w/good intentions is as complicit as a white person who intentionally brings upon suffering/death. #GeorgeFloyd #AhmaudArbery

iPhone : Just thinking about the questions that I get asked from parents as a black assistant coach/staff member that others might not get asked.

Twitter Web App : AU has added Chris Gleaton has a preferred walk-on for next year. 2-star Verbal Commits recruit is a 6-3/4 (diff listings) shooter, with the ability to get to the hoop too. Eagles still have a scholarship open.

Twitter Web App : According to Goodman's list (watchstadium.com/college-basket…), there are now 7 Crusaders in the transfer portal.

Twitter Web App : Let us know if you can name any player who will play for Holy Cross whenever the next college basketball season occurs.

This, obviously, is the biggest of losses for a program in disarray. twitter.com/GoodmanHoops/s…

Twitter Web App : 7/ It's pretty clear that given AU's needs, Smalls and Lorng will be locks for rotation minutes (assuming a 2020-21 season). Rogers and O'Neil broth bring inside-outside games that fit at AU & should battle for min at the 4. Brown could be a guy that reminds a lot of Stacy.

Twitter Web App : 6/ Brennan on the 6-9 Lorng: "Christian is a strong, aggressive post player who rebounds and finishes. He has competed and produced against high-level programs and he will help us immediately."

Twitter Web App : 5/ Brennan on the 6-4 Brown: "Vic is a multi-faceted guard. He does everything well, understands how to play and played for an excellent high school program. Vic understands what winning is about and I look forward to him bringing that commitment to our program."

Twitter Web App : 4/ Brennan on the 6-8 O'Neil: "Johnny is an ultra-skilled wing who can really shoot. He can guard multiple positions, block shots and is extremely competitive."

#AUMBB

Twitter Web App : 3/ Brennan on the 6-8 Rogers: "Matt is a hard-playing, tough, competitive kid. He goes after every rebound, can really move on the perimeter defensively and will bring a ton of energy to the court. His offensive versatility allows him to score on the perimeter and inside."
#AUMBB

Twitter Web App : 2/ Brennan on the 6-2 Smalls, who will take over for all-time great Sa'eed Nelson: "Colin is a competitive lead guard who can really defend. An excellent decision-maker, I believe Colin will be able to run our team immediately."

#AUMBB

Twitter Web App : 1/ AU has officially inked its current 5-man class for 2020 (it still has 1 open scholarship), w/4 FR & a Juco transfer
— PG Colin Smalls
— G Vic Brown
— Wings Matt Rogers & Johnny O'Neil
— Big Christian Lorng (Chipola College).

See thread for quotes from Mike Brennan.

Twitter Web App : Jacob heading just up the road. Will be interesting to follow his career in the America East. twitter.com/VerbalCommits/…

Twitter Web App : I miscounted yesterday. AU has *12* scholarships filled for 2020-21. One currently open.

#AUMBB twitter.com/auhoopspodcast…

Twitter Web App : AU is now in relatively good shape on the wings, but still thin up front.

Gs: Colin, Jamir, Stacy, Victor
Fs: Connor, Ben, Marvin, Matt, Johnny
Bigs: Josh, Christian, Jesse

Could use at least another big to bolster frontcourt depth. Watch the transfer market.

#AUMBB

Twitter Web App : With signing of 6-4 G Victor Brown, AU up to 11 scholarships filled for 20-21 — 2 spots open. Brown avg. 12.5ppg, 5.3rpg, 3apg, 1.5spg for Lake Highland Prep in Orlando this year.

Has similar defensive potential as Stacy (seen here): hudl.com/video/3/749769…
