Next year looking very promising. Sam Prescott named to Daily News Philly First Team along with Denzel Yard (Siena).
"(Sam) used a strong offseason to earn a scholarship from Marist, then made all-variety big plays again and again while showing how wise that school's coaches had been. Known as "Speed Racer" due to his full-throttle approach. Scored 546 points in 32 games for a 17.1 average."

Conclusion we can all reach from this is that Chuck & Co. know their stuff.

Sam's certainly gonna be a good one. He seems like the type of player who will constantly be interested in learning and improving. Very humble driven individual.

Marist Basketball Fan...can you give us some more details on the LB thing?? How do you know he's gone specifcally??

Almost same question I had Red Fox 5. Marist Basketball Fan, are you privy to any discussions between LB & Coach Martin or any of his staff. What was discussed?

Marist BBall Fan, by your silence I'm guessing you don't know anything more then what you're already claiming. If that is the case, and assuming what you say is even true, how can you pass judgement without knowing both sides?

It goes on in sesspool outlets like this all the time.
Just check how the idiots judge Matt Brady.

Your response ( re: Matt Brady ) doesn't suggest someone who is being thoughtful and reflective in your position.

By the way, if you find this is a cesspool, why do you keep diving in? I've been reading your on-going defense of Matt Brady, but so far I can't see where you've converted anyone to your particular point of view. In fact, I think you're having the exact opposite effect on those posting on this board.

I think you make some valid points, but when you call others idiots because they don't accept your perspective, I doubt you'll ever convince anyone of the rightness of your position. That's just my opinion.

And, your opinion is a good one.
I had plenty of thoughtful, reflective things to contribute back when Brady first moved on, and was just taking a very undeserved and brutal beating in this particular sesspool. Scroll back to that time frame to find that stuff.

Of course it all fell on the deaf ears of the pitiful posters who inhabit this space.

Beyond that, I sort of like poking fun at the idiots like Yankee and huh?
It's kind of like poking a stick into a cage of monkees.
Lots of fun to see how they react. And, very predictable.

Can there be any defense of how some of the people act on this board?
Just morons.

The point is that Brady is clearly in a better place, and fans like huh? and Yankee, if they are indeed representative of Marist's fan base, are part of that equation.

waltsmith, too bad you feel this way. I read all the posts regarding this matter, and found the early posts by all concerned especially informative & interesting. I'm not nearly as knowledgeable as you and others who post here regularly. I'm just a fan, so I found that I learned alot.

For me, after all has been said and done, I find Matt Brady's actions self-serving, but understandable. I think he did the school a misservice, but I don't think that makes him (or you) a villain. Thanks for helping raise all the issues in this case. I hope that anyone with something interesting to add speaks up. I think it's what makes this site interesting.

Thanks for helping to raise all the issues in this matter. After that, it's up to each individual to make up their own mind about how they feel about Matt Brady, for what that matters.

You certainly are one of the few level-headed posters in this forum. It is nice to have a reasonable discourse.

But, you claim that Brady's actions were "self-serving" and that he did the school a "misservice.:"

My perception is that you're looking at Matt's departure clearly as a Marist "fan."

Look at it from Matt's side of things:
He gave Marist four very good seasons, maybe the best era of Marist basketball in many years.
He took players who had little previous success and made them better. He turned Jared Jordan, who had no offensive skills whatsoever except as a superlative passer, into a very good shooter. That was typical of the improvement most of Marist's players made under Matt.

Matt was "underpaid" by mid-major standards, making about $130K annually.

In any endeavor, success brings rewards.
Matt's came in the form of a very good offer from James Madison University for $350K annually.
At JMU, as I've noted repeatedly on this board, Matt now coaches in a better league than the MAAC, gets greater financial support for travel, recruiting, etc.; his team plays in an arena rather than a gym; he gets considerably more support from school administration, etc., etc.
If the trolls on this board are any indication, he has a better, more supportive fan base.

Why would he not leave?
How is leaving a misservice to Marist?

As for self-serving?
Who wouldn't make that move?
Coaches do it all the time.

Paul Hewitt left Siena after three seasons. Louis Orr left Siena after 49 weeks there;

John Beilein left Canisius; Bobby Gonzalez left Manhattan; Tim Welch left Iona; Dino Gaudio left Loyola ... to become an assistant at Xavier; etc., etc...

There was a situation at Marist beyond the basketball court. Matt was made some promises by Marist's administration that never were fulfilled. Others on this board have indicated that the Marist administration wasn't as supportive of the program as it probably should have been.

But, that's not even the point.

I know Brady personally, and have known him for a long time. He is a good, decent human being. He has done nothing but represent the institutions where he has worked in the best possible way. He is a very good coach, and showed that in four seasons at Marist.

Coaches come and go all the time. It's a way of life in the profession, particularly at the mid-major level.

If you succeed, you move up ... and Matt did. Why not?
Because if you fail, you get fired.
There's no loyalty at this level. Ask Dave Magarity about that.

It seems like you have an understanding of that, unlike some of the morons (that's you Yankee and huh?) who make boards like this a sesspool.

"How could Brady leave our school?" is all idiots like that see. They live in their small, isolated world.

Matt left for triple his salary and improvements in every other aspect of JMU's program compared to Marist.
If he didn't leave, he'd have been a fool.

Matt succeeded and got rewarded in a manner that Marist could not begin to match.

Anyone in any walk of life who had the opportunity to triple his salary and move into an "improved" job situation would do so in a heartbeat.

And the employer left behind would understand.
Marist certainly did.

But, for some reason, the majority of the trolls on this board just can't figure out why Matt left and portray him as a villain.

In truth there's no villain here. Just a good man moving on as is his right and as is the expectation in mid-major level basketball.

How is that self-serving and doing a misservice?

Walt - I'm never going to be sold on the fact that Matt moved on to a better program, more money yes! and is more money a good reason absolutly. But bigger/better facilities more money etc. doesnt have that much to do with the success of a program.

If it did then Marist would not have had a higher RPI then JMU for 8 out of the last ten years.

If JMU is such a move up then the players Brady recruited for Marist should not be able to play in the CAA with great success. - No the CAA has the same type player the MAAC does we recruit the same type of talent.

The MAAC has had 20 players drafted to the NBA to the CAA 13 since 1998.

You can't sit there and tell me that year in and year out the top team in the MAAC - Siena or other couldn't win the CAA. You have VCU and George Mason then who really scares you? Georgia St, UNC-Willmington, Delaware? Marist beat ODU when ODU was one of the top teams - no these two conferences can go back and forth (MAAC was actually ranked high RPI the CAA this year)(the 10 year avg is CAA 14 MAAC 17)

Other MAAC coaches that have moved on have moved on to BCS conferences not the CAA.

Fran Franchilla - St. John's
Bobby Gonzalez - Seton Hall
Steve Lappas - Villinova
Mike Dean - Marquette
Paul Hewitt - GT
L Orr - Seton Hall
Skip Prosser - Xavier
Tim Welsh - Providence
Jim Valvano - NC State (yeah the etreem)

But my point is I never expected Brady to be here long I just expected him to do more to get looks from the BE and not the CAA.
