    We should be able to take a summer trip this year like we did in 2013. You can take one once every four years.

    Bourama had 18 tonite for St. Benedict's. My guy Precious Ochiuwa had 21 in a blowout win. Noah Farrakhan added 14.

    this is why recruiting can be so hit and miss. Look at the guys on the other team. Most of them are around Gary Coleman height.

    St. Benedict's is a major program and they play plenty of good teams. Sidibe faces excellent competition and does well against it.

    It is, but every highlight film I've seen of him shows him against clearly inferior competition when it highlights his defensive skill and outside of a WIDE open dunk very little offense and difficulty finishing in traffic against much smaller defenders.

    He looks very athletic and he has size, maybe by his Junior year he can give us quality minutes but I'm really not expecting anything from him until then.

    He's played well against good big men, including dominating Nick Richards.

    Your second scenario is possible but I think he will be ready to chip in a little next year. He knows how to play with both hands near the basket and has a nice stationary jumper.

    If Thompson still can't play defense and 72 ends up being a huge bust then I hope he will be able to. We should be set at the 5, do you think he could red shirt?

    I doubt he redshirts because 7'2" does look like a bust. Sidibe can play the 5 and some 4. At the very least he has the foot speed. If 7'2" looks like this year's model, Sidibe would have to play the 5.

    And let's first fill our roster before we start talking redshirts. We are a long way from that.

    Right. You were asking if Sidibe could redshirt, right? I was saying I doubt that happens since we need a backup center to Thompson and probably some help at the 4 too.

    Led St. Benedict's today in a win with a team high 17 points and 13 boards.

    Solid at what? Are we talking about Paschal Chukwu? Chukwu will be tall. I can say that with confidence.

    True.

    He certainly won't be a liquid or a gas. ;)

    Although his defense looked to be at times!

    Is our staff recruiting Bourama's teammate: this kid is fantastic. I expect us to get involved at some point. Explosive player. I've mentioned him in this thread. I believe Francis has chimed in on him in this thread too. I'd make a separate thread but is SU recruiting him or showing interest?

    I have no clue if Syracuse is involved or not, but I have to figure St. John's has an edge since God'sgift played there.
