Subject: There's Always Next Year...

Obviously, losing Malik is a big deal and minus the free throws tonight, Corey Brown was their best big man down the stretch.

So...Harried and Fritz certainly had their moments this year and will no doubt get better. I hope that despite being out most of the season, Ahmed can do the same. Hitchon to me is a big question mark. He was never completely healthy all year and there definitely is some tension between Scott, his family, and Reggie. I hope he gets fully healthy and stays but this will warrant some watching. Any chance White finally turns the corner in his senior year? Majesty will take over at the point - will be interesting to see how this impacts his scoring. I don't expect much from Ivan.

The new guys. I've been told that Green is the real deal and will certainly be the equivalent if not better than Brown. I also expect Beyah to be a significant contributor as a combo guard.

Three spots still to fill. I would expect a JUCO guard, an athletic wing and another big. Obviously would change if anyone else leaves.

Disappointing season for sure but they could be pretty good next year if they can hold things together and improve.

I agree, we’re at risk with Scott. Disappointed for sure. I hope that Bill & John meet with Reggie. He has one year left and feels that he should be earning more. Then prove it to those who have supported you. To date these last 4 years have been draining & we’ve under achieved when it came to the tourney.

If you think there is a chance next year...go home, you're drunk. We are losing our one and only point guard with no replacement in sight. They have given up on Hitchon also. So your front court depth is now Fritz, White and an unproven, over-hyped freshman.

Do I think there is talent sitting on the Griffs bench, sure, but contrary to Reggie's sentiment of "it just happens" our coaching staff has a track record of chasing players out of town (high and low talent levels).

I like other Griff fans I have talked to, will not be renewing my season tickets. I want it to be very clear that I do not support this regime. I will also be reallocating my donations to the program this year over to educational programs.

One, I was home and two, I wasn't drunk. Were you? Who is this over hyped freshman front court player you speak of? Brandon played a lot of point, Beyah plays the point and I would assume they will bring in a JUCO point with one of the three open scholarships

WE NEED A KID WHO CAN HIT THREES AT A HIGH PCT. like a Spencer Foley or Sam Rautins. Oh, guess not.

Our shooters need to retool and fix the flaws in their releases like Harried’s crooked elbow. The fact is we have no one iwith consistent accuracy and that’s what causes our scoring droughts.

So let’s not settle for an athlete but instead recruit a basketball player. They are out there. But not sure we are aggressive enough to find and sign them. F
