… as long as she doesn't suggest that you should watch Kansas football.

Great news when Tulane needs some good news … Keep it coming Coach Hunter.

Lol. She's not a big football fan. She went to Kansas after all!

That minutes average is off. I'd guess he played 10 minutes a game. He was solid though. Should be great for us. Not to put too much on him, but second coming of Josh Davis would not be out of the question. He is very skilled. Dude is also already 23!

Had a career best 28 points against UofH which I'm sure caught Coach Hunter's eye when looking over his bio ...

Lawson is a great get. He has proven he can play in the AAC and had a very good freshman year at Memphis. Not being the "other Lawson" will allow him to flourish. This kid could be our best player on day 1. Out of high school Lawson was a 4 star recruit and rated in the top 10 at small forward by almost everybody and the number 40 player in the country by ESPN.

With Thompson on board, I think that leaves us just 1 open spot if nobody else leaves. Assuming that is the case, it means that Sehic and Daniels are not both going to be back. It is probably safe to assume neither at this point.

Thompson's numbers don't jump out at you, but he did average 26 minutes per game at Rhode Island. It is also good to bring in another Louisiana kid.

I think we need another big man.

I imagine Hunter would like to be able to add at least 3 guys in his first non-scrambling around like a maniac class.

Add Sehic to 'holdovers' & remove him from 'Iffy' … yeah buddy!
