    I don’t like it for him. I was hoping he’d get a higher profile opportunity. That said, it sounds like it makes sense for him and his family and that’s all that matters.
    From what I hear, he had 20+ actual offers -- including Duquesne, Missouri and Alabama.

    Keep in mind Armoni's family attends EVERY game -- home and away. Buffalo is a good program and is at least somewhat close for his family.

    I think he'll have a chance to start there and likely play 25+ mpg. Go up the food chain higher and he could get stuck in like 8-10 mpg.

    That is all true but he seems to be holding out for D1which doesn't seem to be happening so the KCAC may be home yet.
    Well, he's be holding out for quite awhile now.

    He had a pretty strong season surrounded by an injury-ravaged, average team. He gets on the floor with IUP's weapons he could be a big player.

    Armoni went 93-9 at IUP with (3) West titles, (3) PSAC titles and (1) Regional Title.

    I firmly beleive the team that had the Regional at the KCAC cancelled due to Covid was the favorite. But, that happened.

    What Armoni did this year in the second half (while next to nobody outside the program knew the extent of his injury) was just remarkable. To lead that team to the Final Four with essentially one hand is, well, that's legendary stuff. He also displayed the leadership to keep that team afloat after the loss of Shawndale.

    I hope IUP doesn't sit around for 10 years on the Hall of Fame. He should go in immediately.

    The BULLS have made it to the 2nd round of MM twice recently and the 1st Rd NIT so there certainly is an opportunity to be observed. On the other hand if you don't at least make the MAC finals, the post-season seems out of reach.

    MAC is a solid maybe underrated basketball conference. If they had better/newer arenas I think they'd get better guys, push deeper, etc. MAC football & basketball parity is very similar to the PSAC.

    That’s a pretty good landing spot for a D2 guard. Solid program and of all the conferences that usually only get one NCAA bid per year, the MAC is right near the top. I’ll be interested to see how he does.

    That will help his family, travel-wise, too.

    I think he could have went more high-profile but then may have been a 10-12 mpg player.

    Buffalo is a pretty good program.


    Well, anyway, when is Fred Mulbah arriving at the KCAC?
    The conference for the most part is close for them. I would think he'll get about 25 minutes a game there.

    Everybody want's their 15 minutes of fame. On the basketball court you get that fame by thunder dunks and "breaking your opponent's ankles" in the open court. Doesn't matter if it takes a full season of trying, as long as you can put together a fire 5 minute sizzle tape of you dunking and taking the ball to the hole that will draw thousands of Twitter and YouTube likes...THAT'S what it's all about!!! You certainly don't get that from defense, sound fundamentals and popping short, unspectacular jumpers from the elbow. Those ain't going to generate nearly enough likes so why even bother.

    Not scientific, but when an elite team beats or nearly beats a p5 level team, the d1 exhibitions seem to dry up for them in subsequent years

    e.g. ‘17 Duke beats ‘17 D2 Champ NW by 30+. ‘ 19 Duke only beats ‘19 D2 Champ NW by 6…no offers from Duke to play ‘21 D2 Champs NW. Hmmm
