Thanks, 'stalker. We remember Todd's successes in Annville.

I miss basketball season.

Does anybody know anything about who's bringing in who?  What do folks see as individual needs for each team in the C'wealth?

Recently graduated Widener player Casey Stitzel has been hired as an assistant coach at division II Philadelphia University. He replaces his brother Corey, who played for Etown, and is now an assistant at Gannon College in Erie. Casey will be working with one of the most respected coaches in the country at any level in Herb Magee.

So with this new board, it begs the question - no more one-star bandit?

On a more basketball-related note, LVC's men's schedule has been released, and it looks like a doozy. They're competing in three tournaments - the home Rinso (Arcadia/Averett/Randolph-Macon), Roanoke (Ferrum/Roanoke/UMass-Dartmouth) and an absolutely brutal York tournament (York/Lincoln/Messiah). Also the usual non-conf suspects - @Ursinus, @Dickinson, F&M and Del Val @ home. Should be a fun season.

Well good for the newly hired!

The LVC schedule looks fairly strong, but I don't know if the peppermint pattie tournament is exactly 'brutal.'

Maybe "brutal" is too strong, but you've got a Final Four team in York (28-4), Messiah is a team on the rise (19-6 last year), and Lincoln, although they lost a lot, is still pretty good. LVC obviously will look a lot different, but I don't know you could get a more entertaining tournament out of four east-central Pa. teams unless you toss F&M or Albright into the mix.

Tim,

I am not so sure. The Peppermint Patties graduated 3 starters and another serious contributor, representing half of their offense.  Messiah graduated 3 starters including the point guard, so i am not sure about them being on the rise.  Lincoln, well who knows, they are Lincoln.  I will give you that it looks like a good tournament in August, but gosh, it's AUGUST!

Hey, I gotta have SOMETHING to look forward to, even if it's just all in my head.

ohhh.... Warren, thanks for the info on JD... good for him!  :D



As much as I like the team aspects of basketball, I am really going to miss the individual performances of guys like JD, Jon Nielson, Jason Kalsow, and Chris Martin... guys that were just a joy to watch play.  :'(

So, I'm curious... are there any up and coming guys in the conference that I should be keeping my eye on?

I don't know if Trevor Deeter still qualifies as an "up and comer" (I don't think so) but he is probably my favorite guy left to watch in the conference. Matt Kieselowsky also comes to mind from Albright as someone I always enjoyed seeing play. Widener's Essien Ford is also a fun guy to watch.

From LVC, I think Jimmy Curran is an outstanding guard who can make some great shots from the outside, and Billy Orr will be someone to watch out for in the post, just because his on-court work ethic seems to be so above and beyond everyone else on the court when he's out there.

Thanks Tim... I definitely like Jimmy... he's a keeper. Plus his name is Jimmy, and ask any CCIWer, that's a special first name for me.  :D
