    I was thinking to get a guy like him ... somebody has to be sacrificed. The roster is pretty crowded right now.

    As of today:

    Guard: Armoni, Morris, White, Shawndale, Radford, KJ

    Post: Demo, Ethan, Diop

    Walk-on: Benton

    The way this could work is if Shawndale stays in his role of SF/PF/G. He's obviously capable of playing all three positions.


    Redshirt Joe may have to go a little cray next year and actually play 8 guys. Or, they could see this Simmons kid as taking Chucky's spot at (mostly) SF and some guard. Obviously the second part of this class will likely be an incoming true freshman who will redshirt.

    Joe's not getting him if he's going to redshirt him. I can promise you that much.

    What's the direct link to the IUP program for this guy?

    The fact that he never took a redshirt tells me we he won't play until 2022.

    There's a direct link between Simmons and the IUP program.

    He had a very strong (true) freshman season at YSU -- finishing 5th in the Horizon League in 3-point percentage. Last year he made 10 starts and played in all 33 games.

    We'll see what happens. It's interesting they'd target a transfer guard right now based on the returning roster. He also never took at redshirt at YSU ... so, there's that minor Joe factor.

    I went to the game. It was pretty close up until the end. Jeremy Jeffers had his best game at IUP ... he had 18-20 points and hit 4-5 treys. They got Daddy in foul trouble on some real cheap calls.


    I also went the year SRU physically gave it to Pitt in the first half of a game. Jamie freaked on KR on the way to the locker room ... saying they were paying them to come here, etc. True story. That was one of those big muscle SRU teams and they really shoved Pitt around.
    Tell me more. Are you serious?

    Oh, that asshat. I wasn't sitting far from him. Doubt he had much effect on the team. Ship actually had a better record on the road than at home this year. I'll give him credit for being extremely obnoxious, though.
    He was intense.

    IUP had an advantage in that game that wasn't noticeable on the live feed (I assume not anyway). We had a planted (extremely loud) heckler behind the Ship bench. No way they were used to a loud visiting crowd but especially not the loudest guy in the gym screaming at them all game. That dude went after Sleva and Talley relentlessly.

    He kept screaming at Talley "Dominator ... why aren't you dominating." When the home team starts jawing back at the visiting crowd ... mission accomplished.

    The Ship fans had security over like 14 times but he wasn't quite crossing the line to eject him.

    Was it a coincidence he sat where he did .... not sure. But, I doubt it.



    In the old days IUP used to seat the students directly behind the visiting bench. No idea why they stopped doing it.

You're playing a completely different style in a three- or four-point game than you are when you're scrambling to make up big deficits. And it wasn't only the front ends. They missed a bunch of others as well. All conjecture now anyway.

    He certainly deserved that award. His play, and Ship's sudden inability to hit free throws, were two keys to the game.

    My favorite part was Shawndale winning Tournament MVP as a non-starter. He's likely to be 6th man again next year although he'll obviously play heavy minutes. Good luck playing them next year. Although I'm having doubts there will be a next season.

    Last time IUP men were there was 2014-15 season when Pitt won 72-58 but I think it was as close as 6-7 points early in second half. My son was a student manager for Pitt and he told the other managers prior to the game it was no gimme (he had seen tons of PSAC games) and knew how good IUP was (#9 to start the year). I think D Chance played in the game. So the other managers thought he was crazy until halftime when I believe it was a single digit lead.
