Might be worth taking a look at Will Carius who is grad transferring from Monmouth College. 6'7" and was averaging 27 points and 12 boards before suffering an early season injury this year. Averaged 25 and 11 during his junior year.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

His official bio page is now up on the athletics website: https://goleathernecks.com/sports/mens- ... jeter/2386
I'm sure he's still working on getting his staff together. Grad assistants are the only other ones currently listed as "on staff".

At least under coach Wright social distancing at any of the basketball games would never been much of an issue.

Hopefully, Jeter get's enough people to the games so that social distancing measures are actually necessary.

Looks like we got him! I was surprised to receive a call from Coach Jeter today. He's still in Mnpls listing his home, recruiting, looking on line at homes in Macomb. When I asked about Asst Coaches he told me he was bringing two from Highland CC. At least one has worked with him before. He also said he's bringing in another with Chicago ties. We discussed establishing relationships with H.S. and C.C. coaches in Peoria, Quincy, St. Louis, Quad Cities all within easy driving distance of Macomb in addition to Chicago.

Cy,
thanks for the info from your call with Coach Jeter. I hope he looks to recruit the whole state of Iowa. It pained me to see the other Summit League teams recruit the state of Iowa while Billy ignored it. Yes makes sense to recruit those areas, plus I assume we will emphasize Wisconsin (Milwaukee) and probably Minnesota.
