I know there are a few Pirates fans on the board. You guys landed a great transfer from Syracuse today in Kadary Richmond. Kid is going to be a star. Huge loss for Syracuse with more to come. It'll be interesting to see all the crazy transfer portal moves made over the next couple of weeks now that the season is over.

That’s great to know, thanks for passing along!
I am a big believer in Coach Willard. Hopefully they can keep him around a long time.
Yeah, Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim didn’t realize he had a star ...

And he’ll definitely be a star on Willard’s ...

perennially undisciplined, perennially underachieving team next year.

Richmond was routinely lacking conditioning hence his non starting role. If you've ever watched the kid, he's great off the bounce, extremely athletic and led the league in steals.

But JB doesn't tolerate laziness and that's that. From a strictly basketball standpoint, the kid will be a star. So I'm not really sure what your point is regarding both Richmond and Boeheim.

Boeheim wanted to keep him. If his perimeter game develops, he'll be an absolute stud.

Of course JB wanted to keep him. It's a huge loss. Being behind Girard was a constant source of headache for fans and Richmond. But this is how Boeheim has operated for decades. Have that one guy off the bench to offer a completely different look - Josh Pace, Jerami Grant, CJ Fair, etc. Richmond wants to start and that's that.

Boeheim criticism is weird. He could prevent Richmond from going into transfer portal. Walker Kessler entered the transfer portal & that's one of the reasons people Williams called it quit in Chapel Hill.

Crispino where did you go to school

Willard does a good job coaching 2 and 3 star kids at the Hall.
Just asking???

Exactly. A kid wants to leave, he leaves.

As for Cuse, they're looking at three Boeheims on the team next year. Don't think that's ever happened in the history of college basketball.

My criticism of Willard’s teams is a product of watching them play for years.I’m a Villanova alum, so I’ve seen SH plenty. They are always talented, and they always underachieve in the big moment, and it’s almost always because they are undisciplined and play dumb basketball basketball when it matters most. I put that on Willard. I just don’t think he’s a coach who wins games because he out coached the other guy. Quite the contrary is true, IMO.

Being behind Girard in the rotation is a huge indictment in and of itself.

Somehow that LT reply went wrong, so I’ll try again.

Being behind Girard in the rotation doesn’t speak well
for him. Girard is stiff at the major college level.
Isaiah Whitehead was a 5 star recruit. And Willard gets a decent...  
Crispino : 4/6/2021 10:34 pm : link
share of 4 star guys. No, he’s not getting the same caliber of guy every year as the top programs, but it’s not all 2 and 3 star guys either.

Agree. Completely.
Crispino... Nova vs. SHU recruiting  
Rick in Dallas : 4/6/2021 11:27 pm : link
Based on 247 sports basketball recruiting results for the period 2015 to 2019:
Nova
5 5* recruits
5. 4* recruits
5. 3* recruits

SHU
0 5* recruits
1.4* recruits
11. 3* recruits
1 2*. Recruit

Like I said, Willard basically gets 3* recruits at SHU while Nova gets it’s share of 5* and 4* recruits,

It is not even close. I know as I went to The Hall and follow Basketball closely.

Ah, the old home town...

I was back a few years ago for the first time in forever; I see Bunny's got a facelift but the pizza still tastes the same as it always did. Town Hall Deli has moved yet again, but what the aitch-ee-double-toothpicks is that "American/Mexican/Chinese Buffet" eyesore where Alex Eng used to be?

There..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 4/7/2021 10:15 am : link
have been several players that got frustrated in Boeheim's system and transferred due to a lack of playing time. Few of them ever starred in their next location. Heck, Syracuse has gotten way more transfers who made an impact than those they've lost.

And that's because the players who tend to get limited playing time are ones who aren't putting the work in.

That doesn't magically get better in a different locale.

I've been a SHU BB fan since late 60's - early 70's. My dad taught Physics there until his untimely death in 71. They had a great shot last year with Myles Powell, but COVID happened. I'm a big fan of Coach Willard, but as a few of you have mentioned, he does seem to come up short in critical games and planning. Still a fan here in Easton PA.
