    I never did like those moose huggers up north

    A bit disconcerting to find a basketball program that dominates Canadian basketball in a way that UCLA did in the early sixties (and then some)-- and who could probably be NCAA Sweet Sixteen or better in most years and yet has high school type facilities-- I'm sure there's some US curling club that's better than anyone too, but if the crowds aren't there, they're not there.

    Scott Nagy drafted two excellent African-Canadian players in Kai Williams and Taevaunn Prince. Taevaunn Prince? Wasn't he a bust? I saw him play several times with Missouri Southern and this guy WAS a D1 player! Simply ripped up the MIAA opposition-- D2 All American and Bevo Francis finalist. He looked sloppy at State, but very controlled in Joplin. Sorry that he left the Jacks, he was probably the best overall player that I've seen in attending Lindenwood games since they went D2.

    Looking at Carleton's talent, which is probably better than any team we'll play this year, should we be recruiting Canada? Seems Nagy had an eye up there and his successor doesn't.

    Hard to imagine Otz going off on the team for a poor performance in August, but I'm sure he will remind them that they did not represent themselves very well in the first game.

    Looking for ponies in this pile of horse crap, looks like Ryan Krueger notched three threes. Is that a good thing, or just background noise in a blood bath?

    Did we play the Toronto Raptors or something?? Wouldnít expect to get beat by 60+ against ANY team. I get it, itís August, but Iím still pretty confused by this outcome.

    One thing I will say is no Tevin King is a HUGE factor for this team. They donít score 113 with Tevin on the floor. Such an underrated player. Everyone loves high point scorers. Iíll take defense rebounding and efficient offense any day.

    It seems there were only 23 Canadian players in the NCAA tournament last year. I am guessing the cost analysis would say it really isn't worth the expense to recruit up there.

    Or that it's under recruited.

    It comes down to how you want to allocate your resources. SDSU can get a lot more value in their recruiting dollars staying in the States over driving all over Canada.
