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
    They should have been upper-tier this past season. Sancomb had an awful lot of success prior to the Mon Valley. I doubt he's any different now than he was at Wheeling Jesuit. Sounds like he just recruited a lot of whiny players.

      For a lot of his players at WJU there was the pride of attending a respected private institution which I suspect was a big deal for their parents as well. Unless a state school is able to develop the a reputation like VULCANS WBB or either of the IUP teams, there is much less in the way of a reason to hang around for a degree.
      As for last season they could have done better W/L wise but the relationships were too new, IMO, to expect them to be elite. I was content with dangerous. Time will tell as far as DS long term, but we are light years beyond the latter BROWN era.

        I’m realizing “ Be true to your school” is a thing of the past in basketball.

          Unless you're talking about a bench player on his family's or community's choice, where he can bask in the glory of 4 years as a practice dummy, then yes that's probably the case. On an established or up and coming team, players #8-11 can find another program where they will start even if the team itself is not that successful. And players like MACADAMS or HOUSE simply use their opportunity to showcase the talent that they likely felt was overlooked to begin with.
          I don't know if others share this view but this tendency to move seems to be creeping into WBB, though at a much slower pace. As evidenced by this news story, the fans of the ALBRIGHT LIONS WBB are not too pleased with JESS STROM right now.

          Don't know that the MON VALLEY is a big step up from READING, but sometimes perception is everything.

            Said she's never been on the Cal campus. Amazing.

              Correct. Look at your new boy, Boswell. This is his third school -- and he quit on his most recent team this year in mid-Feb.

              The last three big departures from Cal left after their true freshmen year. I wouldn't really call an 18-year-old real loyal after just one year. California isn't exactly a thrilling college town, either. Players notice playing in a 6,000 seat funeral home in front of 127 people, too. The Angelo Dome looks cool on a recruiting visit -- but terrible on game night when it's empty.

                    You mean the KCAC? Yeah, It’s basically the same up there. It’s just their fans don’t want to acknowledge it.

                      Right. The attendance numbers are the same. Lol.


                      IUP averaged more than 2,000 a game this year and had five straight over 3,000.

                      That's like 10 home games at Cal.

                        Never let the facts get in the way of a good message board burn.

                            Better presentation of incoming class listed as COMMITTED but who knows....

                            https://mobile.twitter.com/CALU_mbb/...81523467984899

                            Along with BOSWELL these are numerically the replacements for those who left. Talent wise only time will tell.

                              He also had offers from Mercyhurst, SRU and UPJ.
