  1. Congrats to all !
    Go Bows !

  2. Congratulations to all the players and coaches for not letting the NCAA sink this program. This team this year did the best it could do and surprised everybody by getting 5th place. With all the NCAA’s unfair punishments and late answers on the appeals, this team could of rolled over and play dead but they didn’t. They fought hard in every game, even the losses.

    Now everything is back to normal and I see this coaching staff leading the program back to the top! Lets Go Bows!!!

  3. Eran should start upgrading schedule. Start getting wins here against Michigan St. Kansas. Indiana.etc. at least upgrade non conference to top 90..Get fans out..Next year can get 20 plus wins for sure

  4. YES !!! Upgrade the schedule. Nice post !! Go RunBows !!
    Go Bows !!

  5. Brian McInnes posted some nice Dleague highlights of Jankovic. Looking great! Hope he gets a chance soon. Go Bows!

  6. thanks, akuhead2. I guess Sioux Falls (Heat) traded Janks to Erie (Magic) a few weeks ago. Janks started for Sioux Falls early, then got injured and wasn’t seeing much playing time after that. Now, he’s starting for Erie. Scored 29 in one game, which earned him a starting job.

  7. FWIW: Erie acquired Janks on March 1. In seven games, he’s averaging 16.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists in 27.4 minutes. He’s shooting 52.5 percent from the field and 81.5 percent from the FT line.

  8. D League is Good for Negus
    Woulda been good for Aaron Valdés, too

    I think This Staff could’ve Turned Either into First Team All-Conference…

    Who’s Next Up (Recruiting) ?

  9. Obviously, nothing that’s mentioned on this blog will influence Ganot’s recruiting. That said, wonder if he’ll take a look at an all-state guard (not Hawaii) who recently received his release from an NLI with a Big West school?

    Intriguing prospect, but maybe a big senior year has put him out of reach for another mid-major. I won’t mention a name in the hope that he shows up for a visit here in the near future. Not holding my breath, though.

  10. Looks Ganot is focusing on JC’s for instant help and to balance the classes. Here’s how the classes stack up for next year with 2 open scholies. 1 JC and 1 HS prospect would make for a nice balanced roster. With Thomas and Johnson entering their Sr years they definitely need to bring in another Big.

    Seniors: Thomas, Johnson, Lewis
    Juniors: Purchase, Drammeh
    Soph: Raimo, Green, Owies, Flaisher, Buggs
    Frosh: Avea

  11. An experienced point guard (JC?) and a young post (freshman?) would be nice. Heck, any player who will raise the talent level would be nice.

  12. Other schools on Verbalcommits offer 4 and 5 star recruits. Wait, no, that’s 5 and 4 star recruits. What could it hurt if we were to, well, maybe, try for a few of these? You know, to balance the roster. How about some balance?
