When you can finally say the same thing & the commits are going to Scranton, we are going to throw a party in your honor.
Hang in there...you're getting closer.  ;D

Augie:
I know Kaci is coming plus the young lady from Syracuse & the soccer/basketball player from LI.
Who is the 4th. recruit?
Thanks

Where is Kevin Southard, SID when we need him?
He ran the show by himself for years & nothing was ever late.

I'd be happy with them just making the Landmark playoffs.  ;)
The men's program is a shell of what it once was.

He brings in such poor quality competition to this tournament, the Hilton should stop sponsoring the men's event.
How many times have we seen the likes of Houghton, Bard, Sarah Lawrence, and Pratt Institute?
No wonder they draw 47 fans for this.
Anything for a win I guess.

I know Kaci committed to the UofS a few months back, but beside the war in Ukraine, drought in Europe and on the West coast & the recent issues at Mar A Lago, it's been a slow news day.  ;)

Enjoy...school starts in just 2 weeks.

This is a great hire that will once again give the Lady Royals some long term stability.
A proven winner with his kids playing everywhere from the UofS to North Carolina and all points in between.
The other great option Ben brings is his complete understanding of local talent and all the coaches.
The immediate need will be to make contact with the best juniors out there and hit the ground running with recruiting…something the most recent coach failed to do to any measurable extent in his 3 years at the helm.
All the best Ben.

Word on the street has it that the UofS has an agreement with their new women's basketball coach.
I'll defer to their SID to give the particulars.
I'll just say the new coach is from the Scranton area & has coached women's b-ball many years & in that time, has developed many kids into D-1, II, and D-III programs.

And, let's remember, these "prospects" are all juniors & soph's.
The senior class of 2022 have already made their choice...although extenuating circumstances like coaching changes can always lead to Plan B.

Could be, but I was looking at Lydia Caputi (also a Bowdoin alum).

Meredith may certainly apply, as will 100 others.
What doesn't add up is that both she & another asst. coach both disappear off the radar at Dartmouth shortly after the season concludes.
You don't quit your day job for another when there is no promise of the position, you wait until the offer is made.
In addition, since Dartmouth is now announcing their new coaches for 2022/23 means those positions were posted at least back to early June to give candidates the time to apply & then interview.
Personally, I'm hoping their next coach has previous head coaching experience so we don't have another Dipillo situation.
He came in as Mr. WNBA, used all of Trevor's recruits to win, added a star in Abby this past year after her playing 3 years of D-1 ball & rolls out of town without bringing in even 1 impact player in his 3 years.
He may have some serious talent on the roster, he just never played anyone beyond his standard 7/8 kids to ever know.
His loss is no big deal, the fact he did a poor job restocking the cupboard is.
