Big Sky BBall Preview

Hi guys, I have put together a little preview on the Big Sky (well, a big one!), if anyone is interested. I pretty much wrote about anything I could think about (order, conference tournament, all-conference teams, top newcomers, predictions, etc)... so if you like the Big Sky, I think and hope you'l...

Re: My Big Sky Basketball Preview

Thanks MT, really appreciate your readership! Did you ever make it up to Grand Forks? I remember we talked about it, but it was quite a while back... Douglas wound up at Cal State-Fullerton, and it was a shame to see him go. But freshman DeWayne Russell should provide lots of highlights as a freshma...

Re: First MBB Recruit: Jordyn Martin

When looking at NAU's roster last year, YES!

Haha... but word is he averaged over 9 rebounds per game last year... even though 6'7'', sounds more PF than SF.

I think Chehales Tapscott led the conference in rebounding last year... and he was 6'5''.

Jack Murphy, assistant head coach at Memphis. Spent the last 3 years at Memphis, 3 years before that with the Denver Nuggets.

Re: New NAU Men's basketball coach

They have to make a move soon, right?

I heard a rumor that Rogers, Douglas, and Gruber might be transferring... I have no idea if it's accurate or not, but wouldn't be surprising if there starts to be some fallout from all of the inactivity...

Re: New NAU Men's basketball coach

Don't know if they'll do it, but if I were them I would give Deane Martin a call. He did a great job as ISU's interim coach this year, but will not be retained as permanent coach. Could be a good choice to lead NAU.

Re: Conference play

NAU starting tonight against Sac State, up 6-4 early. Rogers and Douglas each with a 3, which is huge, need them to step up.

Hornets predictably going inside early as you would expect. Will be interesting to see how NAU is able to handle that.

Preseason Basketball Coaches Conference Call

This afternoon there was a conference call with all of the coaches from the Big Sky, each of them took questions for about five minutes. If you are interesting I wrote a little summary of what all of the coaches had to say . Coach Adras talked about Gabe Rogers recovery... and how the doctor thought...
