Unrelated to everything, Scranton has done a MUCH better job with social + digital content lately. I've been been impressed.

I like the video...if they could put the same effort into getting basketball fans butts in seats...;)

 There's a tweet from Scranton Basketball of video hilites of each of the 7-member incoming class.

Looks like Keckler has moved from Drew to Moravian.  He's on the Moravian website, but I haven't seen an official announcement yet.

That's insane.
Nobody goes to Moravian unless you're starting your career.
Keckler has done a great job at Drew...I'm thinking an extended contract was not in the cards with the Rangers.
What the heck happened to the Moravian coach, I don't he was there much more than a year.
This is like their 4th. coach in 6 years.
Is the current AD driving them all crazy?

I believe this year's (21-22) coach was an interim coach only.  Did seem a little odd that Keckler was making an inter-conference move to what seems like a step down in terms of programs (although I believe Moravian won back to back conference championships in the not too distant past under current Montclair State coach Potts).  However, when you read the press release you learn that Keckler lives in Easton, PA and his wife is the head volleyball coach at Lehigh.  So from that perspective the move makes more sense.

Great info Stretch.
I'm sure that's the reason...they can both walk out the door & be at work in 15 minutes as opposed to having to make the hour drive each day to Madison.
Very doable when you're starting out but as you get a little older & the kids are getting into things, you want to be there for that & not stuck on an interstate missing the school play.
Good for him...I'm sure he thought about this before with all the coaching changes at Moravian & figured if I don't make the move now, the opportunity may not present itself again for a long time.

For supposedly being a developer of "post players', Danzig certainly looses enough of them.
Has to be more to this development as Emms started for 2 years prior to his landing in the dog house & seeing p/t diminished.
Joins the ranks of bigs Ryan Braun, Paul Genosevitch & Paul Brown who opted out in the past few years.

Sometimes kids just don't develop the game at the next level as planned. As for the transferred player, he certainly had plenty of looks and opportunities to grow and develop. Maybe it was the system, but I think we all saw what he could/ couldn't do on the floor. Bets of luck moving forward.

 New Scranton Wall of Fame class includes 2 MBBers - Zach Ashworth and Tom Bicknell. Both were dominant players and overlapped 1 season(2007-8).
