I worry that we wont be able to replace Frazier and Reynolds. I have no doubt Dunleavy can coach and knows how to run a team. I just don't know if he knows how to recruit. And, in college ball, recruiting is everything.

It is my understanding that we have someone that either already transferred in or is going to transfer in. Any idea on who that may be?

Graduate transfer and eligible immediately or just regular transfer?

Colin Slater moving on. Asked for and has been granted his desire to transfer.

That's a shame. I thought he could have been good, but MD clearly didn't feel like giving him a shot. Depending where he goes, he could turn all Jonathan Stark.

I guess he could, but he hasn't shown near what Stark did. Of course he hasn't played much. And really wanted to come to Tulane. Dunleavy likes taller players, but we certainly could use a point guard or 2.

When is the last time we had a good point guard stay for 4 years? I think our lack of success can be attributed directly to that. You need a star point guard. Our league is loaded with them. I hope Ona-Embo gets back to being a lock down defender and a better facilitator. Right now he is more a 2 than a point. It sure would be nice to get a graduate transfer point guard and focus on getting a stud point guard for 2019-2020.

I wonder if Slater’s departure means somebody is on the way or if the staff is high on Barrett.

We clearly should have tried harder to hold on to Stark and before that Rickey Tarant. Stark though went to a worse conference so seems like we could have held on to him. We desperately need a true PG.

Pete, I don’t think MD likes small guards. Leaves two open slots as of now. We better fill them with difference makers.

It's painfully evident the sample pool is very small. And then we have to debate the definition of "good".

Looking through some stats on Moses Wood, our 3 star signee from Nevada, and he's a 6' 8'' guy who shot 50 of 76 from 3's this year. That's a cool 66%. We need shooting. He went for 22 points with 10 boards and 4 blocks against Bishop Gorman - ranked 11th in the country this year and a traditional national powerhouse program. His dad was an NBA player too.

Here are his highlights vs Bishop Gorman - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws8uiMBcT7s

He's got some hops. Didn't see him post-up much. Wonder how he is with his back to the basket?

Sorry to see Slater go but clearly Dunleavy has that Pro Ball mindset where measurables trump pretty much anything and for Dunleavy if you play Guard, you have to be tall. Personally, I thought Slater was talented enough to invest in, but that's me.

I actually was going to say Greg Gary. Scary that my first thought goes back almost 25 years.

And Greg Gary only played 3 years. :mrgreen:
