17U Team Speights 2 fell to Team Under Pressure Souldiers but John Mason turned in a strong performance. The 6-6 unsigned senior netted 14 points and displayed slick handles as he attacked the rim. Southern Miss, UAB, Murray State and Richmond all have shown interest.

He looks like a good fit for us.

He has a knack for finding the open man, great body control, good handles and a nice smoothness to his game.

I took some flack a couple of months ago for predicting that Culbreath wouldn't be back next season. Then, Culbreath went down with a supposed shoulder injury. The problem with the story we were being fed is that Culbreath was still dressed on the bench, and looked fine during warm-ups. I've never known of a player to be injured and unavailable, but still dressed out and participating in warm-ups. The last time I remember this scenario is during our CIT run when Zay Henderson was dressed on the bench, but never played. We later found out that it had been decided he would transfer, thus the nonexistent playing time during the end of the season. All of that being said, I think it was discussed and decided 2 months ago that Culbreath would transfer. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

If indeed we have two guards to leave the program in Flomo and Chad, I really hope we can go after a freshman point guard and a transfer shooting guard. We have had great success in recent years with transfer guards sitting out a year and then stepping up the following year to be an immediate contributor. We will need someone with experience for 17-18 because our lone guards with any D1 experience would be Starks and Griffin.

Same here man, when i mentioned that he wasn't playing and probably wouldn't be back because of a mental toughness issue, i caught some flak for it.

I mean it's clear as day but some people have Racer goggles on and only see perfect racer players. If he was medically cleared for 2 weeks and dunking in warm ups and still wasn't playing after having the starting job then obviously something is up with him mentally or he just flat out doesn't want to play which i dont get why but we've had problems in the past with drama queen point guards, McCloud off the top of my head is the most recent one.

And to add to my original post, I don't see Patty being gone. I know we've had an unofficial report of that, but I wont believe it until I see it. I can't ever remember a JUCO transfer transferring after one year of D1, and I'm not sure our academic transfer rating (or whatever the fancy term for it is) could take it.

After the second game I watched Chad play, I thought we might just have another Aubrey Reese on our hands. He has the ability to change the momentum of games.

I can't wait to see how he develops.

I hope it will be as a Racer.

I hope Chad stays as well. He deserved more playing time than he got this season and honestly I don't blame him if he has disagreements with his playing time. If it was decided a month or two ago that he would tranfer then why free out at all. If it was coached decision not to play him down the stretch then I think that is a mistake on the coaches part. We could have really used him.

I agree he should've started over Bryce a lot sooner but at least he finally got the starting job until he got hurt.

And it wasn't a coaching decision not to play him bc you can't play a kid who doesn't want to play. I fully believe that Chad's confidence has taken a big hit and he's scared of playing and getting hurt. After being medically cleared for 2 weeks, he still wasn't playing and that was Chad's choice because he didn't think he was ready which is a mental issue. Do you really think Coach wanted Mcghee at point if he had Chad ready to go? No of course not.

He wasn't there when his team needed him the most and that shows poor attitude and a weak mind which is why imo he will not be back next year.

That's a whole hell of a lot of pure conjecture on your part.No one in the know has said anything about Chads situation.You calling the kid weak minded without knowing crap is pure BS.

Thank you. I don't know whether to laugh or smfh. Just gonna laugh like hell I guess.

Just a reminder that we are closing in on the border of personal attacks on players here. Not quite, but really close. Let's be careful with that fellas.
