Wondering how close 5-foot-10 sophomore Kameron (College of Alameda) Malbrough came to be honored since he averaged 17.8 points on 46%, 44% and 82% shooting respectively alongside 6.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game?
Ditto for Columbia’s Grayson (Clovis West High) Carper. The 6-foot-5 Jumper freshman averaged 16.5 points on 47%, 38% and 76% shooting respectively with 7.1 boards, 4.1 assists and 2.1 steals.

Verbal Commits: “Montana State has offered 2021 Sheridan College (WY) G Brett Thompson.”
Thompson is 5-foot-10 and out of James Logan High. In 17 games this season, he averaged 18.0 points, 4.4 boards and 3.6 assists while shooting 46%, 37% and 77% respectively. Montana State has also offered Thompson’s Sheridan teammate guard JoVon McClanahan.
Verbal Commits: “Long Beach State F/C Joshua Morgan (FR) has entered the transfer portal.”
Not surprising considering the strong season Morgan enjoyed and with Long Beach State is mired in mediocrity. Do give credit to Beach Coach Dan Monson for both recognizing Morgan’s potential and landing the former Sheldon High big.
Verbal Commits: “Florida F Dontay Bassett (RS JR) has entered the transfer portal.”
A grad transfer, Bassett’s 6-foot-9 with a season of eligibility remaining. He went too high originally but stuck with it and earned his degree. He could help a mid-major program.
Verbal Commits D2: “Chico State F Josh Lavergne (RS SO) is leaving the program. Two years to play.”
Verbal Commits D2: “Notre Dame de Namur G Trevor Thompson (RS SO) has entered the transfer portal. Two years to play.”
Verbal Commits D2: “Academy of Art offered 2020 Lincoln Trail College (IL) G Alex Heath.” He’s a 5-foot-10 sophomore.

Hoops Thoughts & Questions
Give College of the Sequoias Coach Dallas Jensen credit where it is due: 24-6 and a berth in the Final Eight (and possibly higher had the tournament continued) in his initial year in Visalia. This after previous 27-3 and 24-5 seasons at Gavilan College, a heretofore dead spot in community college basketball.
With Bryce Drew taking over at Grand Canyon University, will he honor the letters-of-intent signed earlier by Chance McMillian and Quincy Urbina?
Does Washington’s 6-foot-2 sophomore Elijah Hardy make a move or not? When fellow second-year talent Quade Green, who will eventually play in the NBA, lost his eligibility due to academics at mid-season, Hardy’s playing time initially picked up, then dropped back down but increased in the final few Husky contests. The overarching question is will Green return to Seattle or turn pro? If he comes back, Hardy’s playing time will again be limited. This season in 29 games/one start and 11.1 minutes an outing, he averaged 1.9 points, 1.1 rebounds, while shooting 29%, 15% and 73% respectively with a 33/34 assist-to-turnover ratio and 20 steals.
