Brian: I have no idea what the correct punishment is in this case. However, Cunningham has a nice touch and could be a valuable player off the bench for the Blazers. Here is a look at some of the options and strategies.
St. Mary’s College has lived in the shadows for a while now. For years, St. Mary’s College has been best known as the West Coast Conference’s best team other than Gonzaga. While the Zags have piled up NCAA tournament bids and upsets for 10 years, the Gaels have toiled in the background while making NCAA tournaments of their own. However, they had not won any March games until two days ago against Richmond. Yet St. Mary’s College is no longer the other WCC power, after they won their second NCAA tournament game against Villanova.
Both teams own wins over Villanova and Rutgers, and while Temple lost by 10 at No. 3 seeded UCLA, the Irish defeated the Bruins in 2OT. The Owls lost at Duke, and the Irish lost at Baylor, in addition.
Maryland then took a glance at Mike Brey, but he is staying at Notre Dame. That’s actually not a bad scenario, as I don’t see Brey being the answer at Maryland. However, a number of potential coaches have now turned back the Terps, and that’s bad news because it makes the job look less attractive.
South Florida’s front four – Augustus Gilchrist, Jarrid Famous, Ron Anderson Jr. and Toarlyn Fizpatrick – combine for 49.9 percent of the Bulls’ points, scoring 456 of the team’s total 914. Those four big men have also grabbed 340 of the team’s 583 rebounds, which is 58.3 percent of USF’s total output.
As for remaining options, Maryland would be crazy not to contact Alabama’s Anthony Grant. He would probably be a great recruiter, which should be the top requirement of the new coach.
On the adjustment to new quarterback R.J. Archer: “R.J.’s good. R.J. and I have been basically roommates since freshman year living in Yates so it’s not new. At times when we’ve wanted to work out R.J. and I would go out to Busch Field and catch balls back before he became a starting quarterback. So now what we’re working on now is no different. He’s played receiver so he kind of sees what I’m seeing out there so he understands where it’s going to be open and when I’m going to be open. He knows my strengths and my weaknesses so it works in our favor.
The Red Storm rely highly on an inside/slashing game led by senior Anthony Mason Jr. The club has problems shooting, ranking 324th in Division I with a 27.9 3-point field goal percentage and 293rd with a 63.7 free throw percentage according to Ken Pomeroy.
Based on the likely quality assessment score, selectivity score, placement success and faculty resources, Drexel Law appears to be on track to be ranked at the bottom half of the Top 100 U.S News law schools.
