I guess it's bad news if you're still expecting him to come here.

Cosign. It's not even "news," really. But it's more than we've had lately from that front... which is, to say, nothing.

Yes, we've known for a while that he's not likely coming here.

Left UA circuit and De Sousa and Vipers. Another team to keep an eye on this weekend. Been watching Beal. Okoro a few rbs but with Garland and Thatch that ball doesn't get inside much. MIF play at 7 CT; MS at 8:30.

More with the sources, J T recruitment has turned into a circus. Now miznoz say they feel good about 17th? Obliviously the sources aren't identified, so more heresay. Hope to God that it's done on the 17th, this is getting old.

Okoro is intimidating on D though. Beal up 14 at the half over Team United and Trey McGowans from Charlotte, NC.

It was pretty much done the day he asked out of the LOI. Like Mo Bomba said that day -- just go ahead and say you're going to Missouri already.

Jontay is definitely a beast but with MOKAN up 3 he just badly missed 2 FTs that would have salted the game and Southern Stampede hit a 3 at the buzzer to send it to OT. Something to keep in mind for a future Braggin Rights game.

Even worse, I didn't realize the kid who hit the 3 got fouled.
D1 Circuit‏ @D1Circuit 2m2 minutes ago
Drue Drinnon just hit a three and got fouled as time expired. He knocks down the FT. The @Southstampede will upset @MokanBasketball 54-53.

Horton-Tucker owns the league’s only triple-double through eight games, proving he's just as versatile in EYBL play as he is during high school play at Simeon (IL). Mac Irvin Fire needs wins, and Horton-Tucker will play a big role in notching them in Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Let's not get carried away here, but in terms of his style and versatility does THT have a little Draymond Green in his game?

Would say our best class possibility at this point would be

Frazier, Williams, Smith with Agau, Alstork and McIntosh, unless we actually carry over 2, that would be if we land a big only thought I think?

To be honest I don't watch enough pro ball to say but I have seen that said by others on other boards. THT is a swiss army knife player, so if that's Greens' game, yes you could say that.

I've watched quite abit of Warriors ball these past 2 years...THT seems to be just as good a shot maybe, aggressiveness as well, ball handling, below at this point, confidence not even close, but I am not sure many others are as well....Green is something else for sure.

THT down the baseline for a reverse layup just like Ed Morrow taught him. Fire tied 5-5 with The Family.

Here in Atlanta for EYBL. Watching #Illini targets Ayo Dosunmu & Talen Horton-Tucker and Trevion Williams in Fire vs. Family.


THT has been impressive early. Fire up 14-9.

THT has knocked down two early threes. Also just finished off a smooth take in transition off feed from Ayo. Fun duo to watch.

Talen Horton-Tucker is still on a roll this spring. Buy stock now before it's gone. #EYBL

Yeah, he's got his dander up. The FloHoops camera are like right on the court and he's been riled and talking. Irvins sat him for about 5 minutes after the T. He came back in, ripped down a rebound and blocked a shot. Another foul and Mike and Lance are on his case. Nick on the refs.
But he and Ayo have been something. Fire up 42-35 at the half. THT had a steal right at the end but Burrell blew the layup.
