Rumor floating around now that Mike Roberts is going to be the associate HC. Some claim players have been told, but nothing official yet. Assistant 2 Years at IU, 8 at UNCG, 4 at Rice and 2 at California. Former player at IU, is 6'9" so guessing he played PF or center. Position coach for 3 guys who have been drafted in the NBA (all big men).

Mason definitely played better than his ranking (400 something). I think he's a bit less long/athletic than Wes prefers. But he has the toughness, defensive intensity and shooting ability to make up for it. I doubt he starts next year (and maybe not even as a Junior), but he can definitely be a lightning rod off the bench who plays 25+ minutes on nights where he catches fire.

Hes more athletic than I ever thought. Pretty sure he just posted a 40+ vertical.

Hes more athletic than Cumberland but they both have good instincts so even if not Uber athletic they have enough to get it done. BB players with good instinct can jump passing lanes and know where you are going before you do. Less reactionary and more proactive.

Not many guys have both instincts and athleticism

He could end up being better! Hes got a good head start. His confidence and attitude seem to fit well with what Wes talks about. Gym rats...winners...grit

Tari is super important because we need bigs and not a lot out there with his skill set. It would make coaches job a lot easier. But Mikey and Mason are right there as far as importance.

Without having the time or ability to scour the transfer market...you cant get much easier recruits than guys already on the team. All show big promise already.
