Sort of has to do with this because of our recruiting of Aussie and out of state players.

 

If you scan down to the NJ-Rutgers heading you will see UA mentioned. Phil has frequently pointed out the number of out of state and out of country players on state university (tax payer funded) teams. I emailed

to disagree with his conclusion and he answered, pointing out that he has issues with tax payer funded universities making winning basketball games a priority. He also pointed out that his twin sister is a UA grad so he wasn't picking on us. The other 3 SUNY D-1 MBB teams have 8 NY players...and we have 3 NY Players.

Phil has been and always will be a donkey. How many tax breaks, which affect NYS's bottom line, are given to out of state businesses with limited nys employment drivers?! Answer: many

As the state funds less than 20 % of the UA operating budget, sounds about right.

Plus athletic scholarships are not state-funded? Or does he mean that donations to athletics would otherwise go to the U's general budget, ignoring that without sports most of those donations wouldn't be made?

 

Nearly 80% of the athletics spending is from "external sources", the Student Athletic Fee covers more that 1/4 of the scholarship cost even using an out-of-state tuition number for every athlete.

We wouldn't have had room though. He committed to Monmouth for this coming year.

He reclassed to 2017, was a 2018 kid.

The team definitely needs to focus on signing a couple of bigs at this point, and that should be their focus IMHO.

 

After this season, the team will be left with Conway, Hank, and Lulka. All 3 could be great players, but unless the team wants to go small, there wont be any depth

I expect 3 more signings...a wing and two bigs (possibly JUCO's) to compliment the young bigs.

He had an interesting recruitment experience. He's a 2017 grad who had committed to a D2 school but a couple of D1 schools came knocking this spring and he was going to prep and then go D1 in 2018. I guess the Monmouth scholarship opened and he decided against prep school.
