    I think Battle will be back. FH looks to be trending to be back based on how he seems to be back in the good graces of the staff.

    I thought he was good when he played as a freshman and junior. He was just stuck behind Hart and didn't get much of a chance. I remember him having a great BE tourney as a freshman. He also had a big game off the bench against Michigan State in the NCAAs as a junior.

    My question about HW is he has 6 triple doubles and he hasn't played the whole season for AI: has he gotten better or does the competition suck? In the games I watched, I couldn't envision him being a triple-double machine.

    You guys all have much better memories than I do. I must be fried (and it's not from drugs).

    Just listening to Ozzy can fry your brain.

    The challenge is finding the exit.

    The comp in Canada isn't the NEPSAC, that's for sure. He's come nowhere close to those numbers when they have played against top quality prep teams.

    Washington's recruitment is probably going to go something like this:

    "Eric Ayala, are you going to reclassify?" "No."

    Next phone call is to the Washington residence, "have we got an offer for you ..."

    Although waiting forever isn't the smartest thing to do.

    Yeah that's how I remember it, didn't completely remember the position switch but I remember him playing more minutes as a Soph and showing some flashes and then just was completely AWOL his junior year.

    What are we waiting for? Offer him a scholarship. As someone else previously suggested, if he doesn't pan out, recruit over him the following year.

    Can't measure heart. I feel like this is the kind of kid that really wants to play at Syracuse and will work his ass off to make sure he does well.

    Offer the kid, no one thinks he is Pearl or Sherm(then again no one thought Sherm would be Sherm) but he could turn out to be a solid 4 year kid.

    There has to be something going on here or else our arrogance is unreal. Since when are we good enough to dismiss a kid who wants to come here with programs who are experiencing success.

    I was in the boat to not take the kid...but like state above, you can't teach heart and seems like he has it. He'll make it work, especially the promise he made to his grandma. Take him, 5th guard transfer and hopefully Howard or Ayala will be here to be the combo.

    I think we want Ayala and Duarte first as they are higher upside...

    We also wanted Green and look what happened. I get it. It's not that simple. Just would hate to lose out on Washington if Ayala or Duarte don't come here.
