My favorite memory of the Groce era came from the Maui tournament. All I hope now is that we finally have a coach who can win with his own players. And he may have to do that in year one.....

Today is a big day for that reason, both guys visiting today could easily play 20 mins a game. along with Smith and Trent(who I guess you could call a Groce player) this team will for sure have BU finger prints all over it. We could really use at least one if not both signing before they leave campus.

Wow, I misread that tweet. Just a visit. No need to freak out (yet).

Check this kid out. 7'2 center. Grad transfer for New Mexico State. When BU says he wants someone taller than him, this kid might do the trick.

For some reason my mind red the "Cal treatment" for these two today, which I'm sure Antigua knows all about that!

He's no Kareem but he does seem to have some low post moves and he can catch the ball off the high pick and roll. The competition was not great for the most part but a 7-2 guy for one season might not be a bad use of a scholarship especially if we wind up with one open.

Is there a reason they are visiting at the same time or just coincidence?

Name to keep an eye on is Troy Baxter. Originally committed to Antigua at USF then wound up at UNLV, but he is now transferring.

I'd pass on the 7'2" guy. He has no legs, and he has little playing time. Started last year playing 25 and then down to a few minutes. Can't shoot a free throw, and more problematic is he has size and girth but did not impose his will on his moves to the basket, although he shot it well. B10 needs someone willing to bang.

I'd be shocked if Underwood showed interest in a guy that slow.

Man does that kid have bounce. Would seem like a good fit at BU's hybrid 4 spot. Yes please.

Sign me up. He'll want to put on weight before he starts yapping like that in the B10, but sign me up all the same.

Wow. Just like a good beer, lots of hops! The article said there were some issues on defense. I wonder if that was scheme or desire? Didn't look like he had much of an issue defending the rim.

I gotcha. 30 mins ago he met up with Coach Coleman at the airport. They also made him a cookie cake for when he arrived. It says, "Welcome to Illini Nation" with the shield logo above it.
