    Why not? You can never have enough guards and Pregram will be a senior. Loading up on guards is smart! Guards win games.

          I should be reasonably happy but with COLLIN MACADAMS and LUKE HOUSE coming and going in the past two years, really not so much. Don't know the basis for pretty decent players given a lot of playing time and staying for a single year. Hope it's not the elephant in the room. Time will tell.

            Interesting first for VULCANS MBB as twins, KYLE and CHASE WHIPPEN commit to CAL U for 2020-21. Their HS careers have been all over as their family moved back and forth between Virginia and Boston. KYLE is a 6'6" G and CHASE a 6'4" F. They have both been coached at DMV BASKETBALL ACADEMY under WARREN DOLES, a close friend of DANNY SANCOMB. Along with....
            PRESTON BOSWELL 6'2" G Magnolia HS New Martinsville, WV via WJU/WLU.
            GABE JIMERSON 6'7" F Miller Sch of Albemarle Richmond VA. CHRIS PECCON 6'0" G Ringgold HS, Monongahela
            CAM NUSSER 5'10" G Belle Vernon Area, Belle Vernon

                Considering recent events may be barely enough. Thankfully home games in the ANGELO DOME can be played before appropriately SOCIALLY DISTANCED fans.

                  I refuse to ever get my hopes up again for the men’s team after two terrific freshmen bailed after 1 freakin’ year. (Not to mention other good players who are gone). Do you think Sancomb’s long commute is a problem with player-bonding? Just a thought.

                    I actually think it has more to do with his coaching style, game management and current trends. Players, especially MBB, really don't feel a lot of loyalty to a program when there are so many options available. In the name of fairness for the student athlete college ball has downplayed sticking it out. Recruiting needs to be more refined.

                      Wheeling to California is not a long commute. It's less than an hour.

                        If we're picking nits, that commute is probably about 70 minutes (I've done it on multiple occasions). But I think Fee's point is that some basketball teams function like a "family." There's an atmosphere of that type around the team (i.e., dinners at coach's house, playing cards in the athletic department lounge, etc.). And it is likely harder to do those sorts of small but important "family" things when the patriarch is 70 minutes away. It might not be the biggest factor, but I'm not sure Fee is wrong to identify it as at least one possible factor.

                          Who knows. They knew where he lived when they hired him. I will say this the first time I've ever heard about a coach losing players due to his daily commute.

                            Scrub, You hit the nail on the head. This was what I was referring to.
                            Thanks, You have a good day.

                              I wasn't totally discounting that factor but he could live in the South Hills and take the better part of an hour commuting. From my discussions with the Dad of one of last year's class it feels like something more to do with DS personality/coaching style. But none of us are in the locker room so who knows. It's disappointing, but in no way will I second guess his hiring. I still expect progress toward upper tier status this coming. season
