that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
Our favorite really motivational and sometimes secret leaking (see the "YESSSSSSSSSSSS" tweet that was removed just before Mitch McGary's committment went public) assistant basketball coach Bacari Alexander is at it again, tweeting "Stay Tuned. We will reunite soon...... Juwan Howard and Jalen Rose share a Fab Five moment" with a link to the Youtube Video embedded in the first comment.
There's been a lot of speculation already with the rededication of Crisler Arena and the "10 Year Ban" coming off the books in 2013 that the Fab 5 would be recognized in some way. 4 of the 5 (Not CWebb) have already been welcomed back in some form, most notably Jalen's "Rose Garden" section of seats that he buys for children.
I don't want this to turn into another "They cheated, I hate them!" "I love them!" thread, so what would your perfect "Reunion" be? I'd take having all 5 of them back at Crisler, maybe Jalen speaking to the crowd, and a new display case on the Crisler concourse showing the whole history - The baggy shorts, the final 4 banners, the downfall, the scandal, the cultural impact, etc. Lay it all out there. It's history, to be celebrated and scorned and most importantly remembered.
Oh, also, Juwan should do the Cabbage Patch again.
Continuing the recent tradition of OSU big men Sullinger continues his slide.
The new freshmen are on campus and can't wait to see them play.
I'm not sure if their official numbers had been released already, but it looks like GR III will wear #1, Albrecht #2, McGary #4, and Stauskas #11. Not sure about LeVert.
Offseason recruiting plus transfers for NW's basketball team includes Luol Deng's cousin who is 7-2, 3 other commits, a 6'6" winger, 2 6'7" wingers, a 6'9" forward, and a 6'11" forward. Now add that to waht they currently have and we're looking at a team that could give teams in the B10 fits after this year's graduations and attrition.
10 Men's Basketball programs failed to meet the required APR score of 900 to partcipate in the postseason, with the headliner being UConn that had a lot of players leave school for various legal troubles.
It seems doubtful this will necessarily change anything moving forward since Kentucky Basketball somehow got a score of 963 even though their entire team change every year.
