    wlu will be young, but there will be quite a battle to earn playing time with the returning players, talented recruits and transfers.

    here are highlights for Stewart.

    Welcome back Columbus...eer!! Missed you.

    Quick never goes out of style...much like spot up three point shooters.

    He might not (or may?) find his way into the starting 5 but on the Hilltop, if you can shoot you will find a way to get 15 plus MPG

    So the HS administrator he had two years ago has enough pull on him to get him to transfer to the school her husband coaches at but that he has never played for? Wow, that's some Svengali like pull!!

    Boswell played for two seasons under Sancomb (the coach...not the administrator) so THAT was probably the connection that brought him to Cal after quiting (getting kicked off the team??) 21 games into the 2019-20 season at WLU. I always found his departure a little odd. I mean he had played 21 games and started all of them...was the 3rd leading scorer...averaging 24 MPG...not taking a ton of threes but not zero either and was making them at a .421 clip. Then POOF...gone with no reason why asked or given.

    Likely one of three things:

    In no order

    * He doesn't want to play half a game

    * After a year practicing there he didn't fit

    * J.J. Harper isn't coming there to come off the bench


    Remember, too, Cal was without Cam Polak all season (one of the best SGs in the league). So, Cal may not be the best fit, either (if he really wants to start).

    Don't know if he goes to Cal or not but Danny and he didn't cross paths at WJU. Don't think an administrator would have much pull over a basketball player. If that was the case, why didn't he go to Cal last year when he first left Wheeling? Or if she does have this pull, why didn't she use it to keep him at HER school??

    LOL you're right. I forgot about the Boswell Plan.

    That dude was a little whacky on the court, but he's a pretty good young man off it. I think he's going to have a bright future in the coaching arena.

    He's from right near Cal. Danny will probably pick him up.

    Sad part is, he projected as a starter this coming season. He was also one of our few guards over 6-1. We are going to be small next.year.
