I’ve got high hopes for mccshane. I thought if he could just get a chance his athleticism will allow him to stick somewhere.

Re: No reply from Billy Wright

I remember I sent an email to joe lunardi the year we played Cleveland state in the bracket busters comp...

Re: At Sioux Falls

Tough loss. Hard to beat a team shooting like that from beyond the arc. Feel bad for them but they showed a lot of promise. I’ve always thought this team has the talent. Hopefully some momentum can stick with them through the offseason and keep the guys together.
