Saw the new roster but no way I can predict the lineup.   Coach has a lot experienced guys at his disposal.

Shouldn't there be a 4th ?

will that be enough?

Will Dunn 6-8
Jacori Owens 6-9
Josh Irwin 6-7
Mattia Ucunzo 6-8

Not saying they're all post players but a little more beef than we have seen.

Still need some inside presence!

Malek green & Adrian Nelson.

Love that Garrett is back.  This team is veteran with a lot of fire power.

Michael Lucarotti is transferring to Gannon.
Collen Gurley who walked on from Mt union last year is transferring  per verbal commits site.

Transfers to Bentley University.   D2.

Thought that was an excellent press conference with a lot of insight from Coach Calhoun.

Does sound like pretty much everyone else is coming back (at least for now); Shemar, Hunter, Dunn, Owens along with Gurley & Irwin, who didn't play last year.  Don't think Chris Shelton was mentioned; could see him transferring.

 I missed that he didn't mention Shelton which makes sense since if he gets another recruit they would be at 14 and you can only have 13.  Can't get over how rosters change so much in the portal era.   I got a feeling even coach Calhoun like others are learning on the fly on how to navigate on how to build a roster.

Todayís MBB press conference on YouTube announcing the 5 signees.

 He said there might be one more.

Wick, I get confused with rosters since the covid extra year(s).   I thought Ritz was done and if she has another year that would be nice.

Barnes likes to isolate the post and Lily Ritz was G-d send for the program this past season.  She's gone and now he plugs in a Tennessee transfer to take her place is pretty impressive.

Daniel Ogoro is transferring.

I figured he would be gone.  Seemed like he had a lot of promise in his freshman year.  Not sure what happened this past year but he couldn't hit shots and was terrible from the FT line. 

You have to wonder about Chris Shelton.  I hope Myles Hunter stays.

Ogoroís problems in making FT, out of control drives and inconsistent shooting pretty much doomed his play time.
Miles Hunter still needs to improve on the consistency in his mid range jumper and 3 point shots.
I hope the new guys can mix in with the returning four ( Mayes, Cohill, Shelton and Hunter. We still need improved playing from Dunn.

Yes.  Ogoro had some success the year before driving into the lane, but really struggled with that and had too many turnovers and too many missed open shots.

YSU struggled against the zone, but Hunter was effective beating it when he hit a lot of those mid range shots.  I'd like to see him get his 3-PT % up.  He was better the year before.  He seemed to fit good in the 6th man role.   

100% agreement on Ogoro.   My blood presure went up when he had the ball on offense.  Great at driving the ball but his shot wasn't there.  He did hit a 3 to beat Wright State so I wish him well which might be the d2 level.

Myles can be instant offense off the bench.  Love his high release at mid-range.   I also thought Shelton might bolt.  He has a beautiful looking stroke so it might be mental pressing thing that he can move on from and contribute in the up coming season.

Really blown away how coach C attacked the portal.  I'm now wondering if portal recruiting is > than hs recruiting at a place like YSU or is it a short term fix ?

Daniel Ogoro is transferring.

Lucrotti now transferring per Verbal Commits!

Hardly knew him.   Nice size for a point guard although he might play off the ball at his next stop.   Wonder what motivates these type of decisions ?
