Man oh man, I am so stoked to see this team on the floor. Give this program a year or two and the AA should be once again packed to the rafters. This is the beginning of the resurrection of Wyoming basketball.
I do believe you're right. I'll be there hanging from the rafters. Fun times ahead!

Re: Eoin Nelson: 5th Linder Commit

I like the way he runs the court. Looks pretty good. I wish the highlights showed more rebounding but it did show a couple offensive put backs. His highlights aren't filled with him hitting threes so maybe he's more of a traditional post player. There was lots of pick and roll and passes to the pos...

Re: '20-'21 Poke Hoops Recruiting Watch

Very impressed with Linder so far. In his short tenure he has brought in four solid recruits and is building some excitement around the program. Enjoying watching him get us back on track and turning this this thing around.

Re: Linder - Official

Linder's going to be a great fit here. Nice step up for him, and we get someone from the area that is on the rise. Looking forward to watching our program develop into something!

Certainly seems like the definitive choice and I'm sure he'd do good here. Hopefully by now Burman has talked to him. Wonder what other offers he's getting...

Edwards dismissal was inevitable and should not come as any surprise. Who will replace him?

Re: Who is our next head coach

https://uncbears.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster/coaches/jeff-linder/568 I am ok with all of the suggestions but I thought I would throw this guys name in as well. He has done well at NC and when he was at Boise they had pretty good teams. He is from Colorado so he would be able to recruit locall...

Re: Who is our next head coach

Menzies is another interesting one. I'm sure he'd be interested in another head coaching spot. Well connected on the recruiting trail and left a good record at NMSU. Several tournament appearances. Menzies moves the needle for me more than Miles. I respect both but think Coach Menzies would be a sl...

Re: Who is our next head coach

Looks like a good candidate. Proven division II track record. Prior to West Texas A&M he played and coached in Minnesota and Wisconsin so he can handle our cold winters. Wyoming could be a good div I opportunity for him. Probably find a spot in the athletics department for his wife too. Its not too ...

Now that Jack Williams committed to Montana is anyone aware of other transfers or juco bigs we are looking at? Any official visits planned? Just thirsty for fresh recruiting news or rumors.

Re: Recruiting

Many of the basketball prep schools (including Mt Zion and Washington Academy) simply prepare kids for ACT/SAT tests and develop basketball skills through coaching and competition. They also provide exposure to college recruiters. If these kids meet the requirements to get into UW, follow the rules,...

Re: Recruiting

The competition for talented high school players with good grades is tough. Recruitment for these kids often starts when they are freshman & sophomores and continues until graduation. Dalton, Herndon, McManamen (hopefully Thompson, Mueller & Maldonado) are all good examples, but high school kids don...

Re: Recruiting

From the highlight reel he's not too shy about launching it from distance. I like the left-handed tomahawks too.

Two commits from Mt Zion Prep in Baltimore and two from Washington Academy in North Carolina. Someone on the coaching staff is building an east coast pipeline.

Welcome aboard Trace!

A JUCO big man that can rebound/defend would be just what the doctor ordered
A solid d and rebound JUCO big and Trace Young and we are looking good.
Agreed. A JUCO banger that can mix it up in the paint and haul in rebounds would be perfect.
