Eastern Washington faces Kansas beginning at 10:15 on Saturday morning. Attempting a factual assessment of that outcome, I want to be Coach Shantay Legans’ cell phone about two hours after the start of that game. Then I’d like to morph into being his agent.
Guard Austin (Monte Vista High) Fadal is a redshirt sophomore with Eastern Washington but played in just four games this season.
Legans should have his guys come out in uniforms with N-C-A-A in big. bold letters on the front of their jerseys.
Jake Lieberman: “Robert Morris transfer AJ (San Leandro High) Bramah is down to three: Western Kentucky, St. Bonaventure, and Nevada.”
St. Mary’s could really use Bramah right now but a return to the Bay Area apparently isn’t the works.
6-foot-9 freshman Alex (Modesto Christian) Merkviladze is transferring out of Cal State Northridge. He averaged 10.0 points plus 7.0 rebounds this season while shooting 44%. 38% and 62% respectively.
6-foot-7 senior Camron (Oakland Tech/Sheridan College) Reece is departing University of Akron as a grad transfer. He averaged 6.4 points plus 4.5 rebounds while shooting 66% and 73% respectively. He didn’t attempt a trey.
6-foot-5 redshirt junior Luke (Vista Del Lago High) Avdalovic is leaving Northern Arizona. He averaged 10.8 points plus 1.9 boards while shooting 46%. 44% and 81% respectively.

Cameron Salerno: “Recruiting news: @Jesuitsacbball guard @IamChrisHolley has received his first D1 offer from Sacramento State, per his Instagram. Holley is a great player who was a Sac Bee All-Metro selection last year.”
Holley measures out at 6-foot-2.
Mathew Montebon is a 6-foot-1 guard out of Newark Memorial High. PSC is located in upstate New York.
A lapse in judgment, possessing no judgment or unabashed racism?
