I saw on twitter that STVM G Chris Painter is now committed to Mount.  He had several D2 offers.  Congrats to Coach Fuline.  Painter is a really nice player.  During basketball season I caught STVM highlights from time to time and not only can Painter shoot but he had several highlight reel dunks (at 5' 11").  He's just a really good athlete.  Excited to watch him next year.

Found myself wandering through NE Ohio today and stopped in Alliance.  Empty, as you'd expect on a summer Saturday, but I got to see the athletic facilities in person.  Nice little stopover.

As of today, the John Carroll basketball web site shows a slate of 19 games scheduled for the 2019-2020 season, with 18 of the being OAC games. That should leave 6 non-conference games to be scheduled and/or posted.

I believe 2 of those 6 games will take place on Sat, 11/30 & Sun, 12/1 when JCU participates in the Kalamazoo, MI tournament with Kalamazoo, Olivet, and North Central, IL. Information currently available to me suggests JCU will not play North Central, but will face host Kzoo, and Olivet. Which team they will play Sat, and which on Sun has not as yet been determined. 🏀

I was skimming some hoops stuff during lunch today.  I noticed something kind of interesting looking at Mount's records under Fuline (now somehow in his 9th year!)  For some reason in my head I thought they were feast or famine.  Either contending or not good.  But the thing is that other than his first season Fuline has never been worse than 9-9 in OAC play.  So my recollection of the "down" years were really just average years (3 seasons of 9-9).  And the good years?  15-3, 15-3, 14-4, 13-5.  If you can develop your program to a spot where 9-9 is the floor in the OAC that's a pretty solid program.

We spent the better part of a half an hour talking about his Polar Bear career and professional basketball journey this afternoon on the podcast:
