Default The Start of A Dynasty?

I have done these before and have always ended up stopping after a few years due to a lack of success. I will be continuing on this time but perhaps at a slower pace than before. I will try to be learning from the game and figuring out why things are happening and try to fix them. In the past I have had heavily superior teams lose to inferior ones on a consistent basis and fixing that will be the key to success.

I will be taking over as the head coach of the Abilene Christian Wildcats. Abilene Christian is located in Abilene, Texas and is a member of the Southland Conference. We have a prestige of 0 so it will be all uphill from here! I am anticipating that this will be a long and arduous journeys with many ups and downs.

We will be utilizing everything that is standard in modern day college basketball as far as rules and setup. We also have real coaches in the file (although the coach file is a few years old and will not be up to date).

This league will be starting in the year 2000. All of the history of college basketball does not exist and we will be starting this league in year one. There is no history and we will be rebuilding through history.

Default Preseason Actions

Our first order of business is to hire assistant coaches. We have a budget of $150,000 so we will only be able to hire coaches at the bare minimum of $30,000.

Here is our entire staff:

Recruiting Director: Claude Broderick (Niagara)
Lead Scout: Devin Esquivel (UT-San Antonio)
Coaching Assistant: Walton Eldred (Niagara)

Due to not having much money we were not able to sign anybody for a long time. Everyone declined our offers but these coaches had to keep dropping their demands and ultimately are much better than what we deserve. We will certainly take advantage of them though while they are here! It also is pretty crazy that we filled two positions with alums of Niagara University.

Default 2000-2001 Season Preview

Here is our roster for the 2000 season. This is a roster completely devoid of talent and I would expect it to be a very bad season for us. Recruiting will be very important as I would guess that in 2 years from now our entire starting lineup will be made up of freshmen and sophomores. We have 4 seniors, 3 juniors, 4 sophomores, and 2 freshmen. As you can see we have 11 local players from Texas and two international players from Germany and Canada.

Next up is our call list! Recruiting will be huge this season as we have 4 scholarships available and there is probably a 90% chance that we will be thrusting 4 freshmen into starting roles next season.

 Robert Hutchins      PG   6-1  177       *       High      Texas
As you can see we have a few multi-star players who are interested in us. Being in Texas definitely has its advantages as there is a huge amount of local talent. We have 3 international players on our call list but I doubt we do much to pursue any of them given how expensive it is to scout them and how small of a budget we have. Right now we are going to scout as many players as possible and do whatever we can to try and get one or two of these 2-3 star recruits. We are trying to build this program from the ground up and hopefully some of these guys will buy in to being on the ground floor.

Default 2000-2001 Schedule

Here is the schedule for the upcoming season. All of our non-conference games are against low prestige teams and this is solely in hopes that we can win some games and up our prestige (as well as up our attractiveness to recruits). We will most likely end the season bottom 5 in RPI due to this but that is something I can definitely live with for this season.

Before the season started SF Rich Eldridge was suspended due to academics. He was projected to play some serious minutes off the bench but will now be out until next semester when he will be eligible for reinstatement.

November 10, 2000

Abilene Christian (0-0) vs. Grand Canyon (0-0)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 66, Grand Canyon - 58. We led pretty much throughout this whole game and never let Grand Canyon get close. James Lindeman and Napoleon Ellingson both had 15 points with Lindemaan adding on 8 rebounds. Kevin Buckingham tied him with 8 rebounds as well and had 2 assists. This was a great start to the season but I don't want to get my hopes up as this was ultimately a terrible Grand Canyon team we played.

November 14, 2000

North Dakota (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (1-0)

Final Score: North Dakota - 49, Abilene Christian - 57. Napoleon Ellingson led the team with 14 points including going 9 of 10 from the free throw line. We were able to overcome 17 turnovers to their 9 and we really need to tighten up the offense and force more turnovers on defense. Romeo Rinehart was the only other player in double digits with 10 points. Kevin Buckingham had 8 points and had 10 rebounds which was close to the first double-double in program history. This was a back and forth game and one I thought we would lose but we were able to pull out the win to go to a very surprising but welcome 2-0.

November 17, 2000

UMass Lowell (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (2-0)

Final Score: UMass Lowell - 51, Abilene Christian - 52. This one was almost catastrophic as with one minute left we were up 4 but committed a foul on a made basket and then had a technical foul from arguing the call. That turned into a 5 point play for UMass Lowell that gave them a one point lead. Thankfully Romeo Rinehart made a bucket to give us the game-winning score! Napoleon Ellingson had 16 points and Kevin Buckingham had 11. Buckingham went 9-10 from the line but the rest of the team went 11-19 and missed free throws nearly cost us dearly in this one. Chris Vasquez narrowly missed a double-double with 9 points and 10 rebounds. We only committed 11 turnovers in this one but also only had 5 assists. Bringing in playmakers will be key for the future. I did not expect we would begin the year 3-0 and this is an absolute dream come true for helping our prestige moving forward. Winning games is always better than losing, even if it is against bottom tier teams.

Breaking News

We received one vote in the Mid-Major Top 25! We are literally at the very bottom of the list, if you were to count down we would be #72. But we made it and that is so cool to see. There is a team with one vote as well (Sacramento State) who is yet to play a game so this obviously doesn't mean much but is still something we will take as a win.

November 20, 2000

Abilene Christian (3-0) vs. Omaha (1-2)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 56, Omaha - 44. Napoleon Ellingson had 19 points and went a perfect 14-14 from the free throw line. As a team we went 28-37 from the line ans Omaha got in foul trouble early. The next highest scorer was James Lindeman with 7. Kevin Buckingham led the team with 6 rebounds. We were crushed pretty hard on the boards as Omaha had 10 offensive rebounds to our two. Another very good win and we are an improbable 4-0!

November 25, 2020

Northern Kentucky (1-3) vs. Abilene Christian (4-0)

Final Score: Northern Kentucky - 57, Abilene Christian - 42. We were outclassed in this one as we only made 15 shots but committed 16 turnovers. Northern Kentucky was able to run their offense easily against us as they shot 52.5% against our 41.7%. This was a sloppy game for us but I can't be mad at all given that we've already picked up 4 unexpected wins and sometimes teams have bad games, especially with inferior players. Napoleon Ellingson topped the team with 9 points and Kevin Buckingham picked up 8 rebounds. We will certainly have to be better moving forward but I'm proud of the fight in our guys.

Team News

After this loss we dropped out of the Mid-Major top 25 poll as we no longer received a vote. No surprise here but since I had mentioned it the first time I figured I should mention us dropping out here.

November 28, 2000

Bryant (0-5) vs. Abilene Christian (4-1)

Final Score: Bryant - 39, Abilene Christian - 47.This one was a rough game as the halftime score was 19-14 with us in the lead and Bryant didn't reach double digits until two minutes left in the first half. The amazing thing is that despite only a 5 point difference we shot 47% from the field in the first half while they shot a whopping 12.5%!! They were able to get to the line and score otherwise they may have ended up with only 4-6 points in the first half. I don't believe this had much to do with our defense although I suppose if you bend my arm we will take credit. This is about what you would expect a game between these two teams to look like. Bryant committed 20 turnovers and made a total of 9 shots! Napoleon Ellingson had 16 points and Romeo Rinehart had 12. This one was absolutely ugly but we got out of it with a win and an impressive 5-1 record.

Recruiting News

Before our first game we already have 3 commitments for next season! With four scholarships I went hard after my top 4 players and honestly expected to at best land only one of them. I used my entire budget on them and it is very relieving to see that it paid off. The next guys on my list were all mediocre anyways so it would not have mattered if I was a bit behind on the recruiting trail with them. Here are the newest Abilene Christian commits!

Our first recruit is Preston Yap from Merkel, Texas. Yap is a 6'11" Center who projects to be a good inside scorer and strong rebounder. He also should provide superb interior defense but will not block many shots. He won't take many or any outside shots and won't do much distributing but we can live with that given that he can contribute with his shot as well as on defense. Yap is a 3 star recruit and the #354 overall player in the nation. Yap wanted to stay local and the other schools were Texas, Texas Tech, and Texas A&M but none of those schools offered him a scholarship.

Our second recruit is Joe Webb from Cisco, Texas. Webb is a 6'10" Power Forward who will be an ok scorer but not asked to be a constant threat inside. He is a great handler and you know once he gets the ball he will not turn it over. His passing is mediocre but is perhaps something he can improve upon. He is an absolute animal on the offensive glass and is another stellar defender. Him and Yap have the potential to become a great tandem down low. Webb is a 3 star recruit and the #467 overall player in the nation. The only other school he was interested in was UTEP but they did not offer him a scholarship.

Our 3rd recruit is Frank Landa from Kileen, Texas. Landa is a 6'3" Shooting Guard who can score from the inside and outside. He has the chance to be an elite 3 point shooter and he is a solid ball-handler and passer. His defense is mediocre but should not be a huge detriment to the team. The good news is that he is a very good rebounder and he is already advanced on offense and will immediately be plugged into the starting lineup. Lamda is a 3 star recruit and the #180 overall player. Baylor, TCU, UT-San Antonio, and Stephen F. Austin were all interested but none of them offered a scholarship.

Being in Texas certainly helped with all of these players as they were interested in attending Abilene Christian from day one. You can see from the schools they were interested in that staying in Texas mattered to them, but they all liked the elite schools in Texas and those schools were chasing better talent. We were able to snag these guys before the other schools could send offers out to them and we are very thankful. If they had waited until later in the year there is no chance we would have been able to sign any of these guys.

The only player to decline our scholarship was SG Earnest Dallas but he was a JC player and it probably is for the best that we stick to bringing in 4 freshmen and not a Juco player. He is a solid player on both sides of the ball though. He decided to attend Tulane. He was a 3 star recruit and #299 overall.

Abilene Christian (5-1) vs. NJIT (2-4)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 42, NJIT - 52. It was over 8 minutes until we scored our first points of the game but thankfully NJIT was cold as well and it made the score 7-2. Despite that we were down 27-15 at the half. Amos Boone led the team with 10 points off the bench (8-10 from the free throw line) and Kevin Buckingham had 7 rebounds. Romeo Rinehart had a rough game going 1-10 with 3 points. This is not a bad loss though as this is a solid NJIT team with wins over Navy and Grand Canyon and two of their losses were to Saint John's and Villanova.

Team News

We have replaced Kevin Buckingham in the starting lineup with Amos Boone.

December 6, 2000

Abilene Christian (5-2) vs. Maryland-Eastern Shore (1-5)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 45, Maryland-Eastern Shore - 62. Playing on the road is tough, especially when you commit 15 turnovers and only force 7. Chris Vasquez had 10 points and 9 rebounds and was by far the best player in this one.

December 10, 2000

Abilene Christian (5-3) vs. Cal State Bakersfield (2-5)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 58, Cal State Bakersfield - 55. We pulled out a close one here thanks to 19 points for Napoleon Ellingson. James Lindeman added on 14 and Romeo Rinehart had 10. Emil Haptonstall had the most rebounds with 6 off the bench. We are still trying to fix the turnover differential as we had 16 to their 10, but right now we have been fortunate enough to be able to overcome it.

December 12, 2000

Abilene Christian (6-3) vs. Grambling State (1-5)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 65, Grambling State - 68. This one was tied with 2 minutes to go but our players only took 3's from that point on which was disappointing because we didn't need a 3 and we shoot 3's at 28% which is 274th in the country. Napoleon Ellingson had 17 points and Emil Haptonstall was big off the bench with 13 points and 6 rebounds. We only had 5 assists on 25 made shots but we did win the turnover battle.

December 16, 2000

Abilene Christian (6-4) vs. Longwood (2-6)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 62, Longwood - 65 in Overtime. This one was an overtime thriller but the biggest story of this game was Napoleon Ellingson getting injured after seven minutes. Luckily he will only miss 8 days with a bruised jaw. Romeo Rinehart had 18 points and Chris Vasques had 10. We won the turnover battle again and I think we would have been able to pull out a win if Ellingson wouldn't have gotten hurt. The bench came up big with 18 points in his absence though. This road stretch has been very hard on us which comes as no surprise. This was our last OOC game and we hed to conference play after this.

December 20, 2000

Abilene Christian (6-5) vs. Stephen F. Austin (6-3)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 37, Stephen F. Austin - 61. We attempted 31 shots and had 21 turnovers as we were outclassed by a much better team. Romeo Rinehart led the team with 9 points. We only had 5 assists on 12 made shots and that is something we will need to greatly improve on next season.

December 27, 2000

Abilene Christian (6-6) vs. Northwestern State (4-6)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 47, Northwestern State - 61. This one was a 4-7 point game throughout before Northwestern State broke away late. James Lindeman had 11 points but both Chris Vasques and Emil Haptonstall both fouled out. We lost the turnover battle and had 8 assists on 14 made shots. This puts our losing streak at 4 but is finally the last of our 7 game road stretch.

December 30, 2000

McNeese (4-8) vs. Abilene Christian (6-7)

Final Score: McNeese - 50, Abilene Christian - 42. It wasn't until 13 minutes into the first half that we had more points (8) than turnovers (7). Thankfully McNeese didn't open a big lead so we were only down 14-8. We tend to keep all these games close but we've only gone on a run of more than maybe 6-0 one time this season. Games are usually very low scoring and eventually the other team gets hot or we just go on a 7-10 minute scoring drought. This will change as we get our recruits in but is tough to coach. We are currently averaging 51.3 points per game which is 326th in the country. A big factor in this is that we are 349th in assists per game, 347th in offensive rebounds per game, and 339th in total rebounds per game.

January 3, 2001

Central Arkansas (3-9) vs. Abilene Christian (6-8)

Final Score: Central Arkansas - 42, Abilene Christian - 52. We got out to a 18-0 lead in this one and had a dream start. Central Arkansas was able to score their first points until 6 and a half minutes into the game when they made two free throws. Central Arkansas didn't make their first basket until 5:57 left in the first half to make the score 21-5. At that point they were shooting 5.9% from the field. Unfortunately we let them back in the game and it was 25-15 at the half. They went on a 16-4 run to make it 25-21 which I really hated to see as it seemed like we had the game pretty easily won. We then stretched the lead to 37-25 as this was a pretty wild game that was just one run after another. But we got our first conference win!! We were out-rebounded by 12 and they had 4 more assists than us but we did win the turnover battle. They had 20 offensive rebounds! Romeo Rinehart and Chris Vasques each had 12 points and James Lindeman had 9. It feels good to get our first conference win!

January 6, 2001

Abilene Christian (7-8) vs. New Orleans (0-13)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 43, New Orleans - 42. This was one heck of an ugly game but we were somehow able to pull out the win. It wasn't pretty but at least we didn't give New Orleans their first win of the season. Both teams had 17 turnovers but we had 9 assists to their 4. James Lindeman had 12 points and Romeo Rinehart was next with 7 points. Chris Vasques had 7 rebounds. A nice little 2 game win streak is a sight for sore eyes and gives us our 2nd conference win of the season

January 10, 2001

Southeastern Louisiana (6-7) vs. Abilene Christian (8-8)

Final Score: Southeastern Louisiana - 65, Abilene Christian - 62. We got the ball down one with 25 seconds left but were called for 3 seconds in the key with 5 seconds left in the game. It was a brutal way to end the game and one I have personally never seen in real life ever happen in all my time watching basketball, but alas here we are! Napoleon Ellingson had a career-high 24 points (on only 9 shots) and Romeo Rinehart had 17 points. It was disappointing to lose this game as we had the lead up until the final minute.

January 13, 2001

Abilene Christian (8-9) vs. Nicholls (2-14)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 41, Nicholls - 38. This was a brutally ugly game but we came out with a win and that is all I can ask for! This season has gone a lot better than I expected and while we will be getting better next season so will all of our opponents. Napoleon Ellingson had 9 points and both Chris Vasques and Romeo Rinehart had 8. Vasques added on 7 rebounds and we had 7 assists to 14 turnovers. This moves us back to .500 on the season and to 3-4 in conference play against which is badly needed with two tough games up next on our schedule.

January 24, 2001

Stephen F. Austin (14-4) vs. Abilene Christian (9-9)

Final Score: Stephen F. Austin - 64, Abilene Christian - 32. We drew a whopping 19 fouls in the first half which is what kept us in this game for so long and down only 7 at the half. Unfortunately in the first half we also shot 8.3% from the field and missed a lot of free throws. The second half was a different story as we only scored 10 points in what turned into a total blowout. We went 5-32 from the field and 21-30 from the free throw line, only attempting 2 free throws in the second half. I'm not too disappointed with this one but the first half definitely gave us some real hope. Romeo Rinehart had 9 points and both Napoleon Ellingson and James Lindeman had 8 points.

January 27, 2001

Lamar (16-3) vs. Abilene Christian (9-10)

Final Score: Lamar - 70, Abilene Christian - 53. Napoleon Ellingson had 17 points and Chris Vasques added on 10 of his own. This one was an expected loss but at least it went better than the game against SFA. No surprise we lost these two but our next three are very winnable and I'm hoping we can come out with at least a couple wins.

January 31, 2001

Abilene Christian (9-11) vs. Houston Baptist (7-12)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 42, Houston Baptist - 48. James Lindeman led the team with 14 points and 6 rebounds. Napoleon Ellingson and Rubio Rinehart both had 6 points. This was a low scoring game with a lot of missed shots. This was one I am disappointed to lose and really thought we could win.

Recruiting News

We have our 4th and final recruit! SF Dudley O'Neil from Townsville, Australia has committed to play for us next season! This was an expensive one to recruit as our monthly budget is only $6,000 and for us to have a head coach visit alone cost $5,000. We were the only team interested in O'Neil which made things easy. Maybe he's a devout christian, who knows! He is a refined 3 point shooter who has the potential to be a stellar rebounder and defender. He should be capable at scoring from the inside but will mostly be an outside threat who helps us out on defense. He is not much of a ball-handler or passer though so look for him to be a catch and shoot type of guy.

February 3, 2001

New Orleans (3-18) vs. Abilene Christian (9-12)

Final Score: New Orleans - 63, Abilene Christian - 68. We completed the season sweep of New Orleans in a game that was much higher scoring than the last time around. We had 14 assists on 22 made shots and 3 starters scored in double digits. Chris Vasques had 15, James Lindeman had 12, and Napoleon Ellingson had 14. We were hit with 2 technical fouls in this game, one in the opening minute and another with under 2 minutes left. Both were by James Lindeman and he was ejected despite having only 4 fouls. This was a big win to get us to 10 wins on the season!

February 7, 2001

Abilene Christian (10-12) vs. Central Arkansas (5-16)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 40, Central Arkansas - 58. Mark Bautista led the team with 7 points off the bench and Chris Vasques had 8 rebounds. We were thoroughly outplayed in this one but only committed 7 turnovers which was the one positive.

February 14, 2001

Abilene Christian (10-13) vs. Sam Houston State (15-8)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 48, Sam Houston State - 82. This was a brutal one as we were outrebounded 43-20 and were thoroughly outplayed. Amos Boone had 12 points and Chris Vasques had 7 rebounds. I didn't expect to win this one and it doesn't surprise me to see us lose by such a big margin. On to the next game!

February 17, 2001

Northwestern State (16-8) vs. Abilene Christian (10-14)

Final Score: Northwestern State - 72, Abilene Christian - 62. We were the better team in this one but our horrendous quality of players cost us the game. We committed 21 turnovers to their 10 and we had 4 offensive rebounds to their 21! This is the type of game we will be able to win in a couple years once we can recruit players who belong at the D1 level. Napoleon Ellingson had 13 points and Romeo Rinehart had 12. This is the toughest game on our schedule and we are hoping to close out the season strong with 4 games against teams with losing records and two of those games coming at home.

February 21, 2001

Nicholls (3-22) vs. Abilene Christian (10-15)

Amos Boone twice argued fouls in the first half and was ejected 18 minutes into the game. We scored 37 points in the first half but only 7 in the first 11 minutes of the second half (Nicholls scored 22 points in that span). We allowed 6 free points from 3 technical fouls in this game and that is what cost us the game. Boone will be back on the bench for the final few games of the season. It is part punishment but he has also been subpar and I'd like to give Kevin Buckingham a chance to start again.

February 24, 2001

Abilene Christian (10-16) vs. McNeese (11-15)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 57, McNeese 71. Napoleon Ellingson had 12 points and Romeo Rinehart had 10. This season needs to come to an end as we are spiraling out of control here.

February 28, 2001

Texas A&M Corpus Christi (10-17) vs. Abilene Christian (10-17)

Final Score: Texas A&M Corpus Christi - 71, Abilene Christian - 49. Napoleon Ellingson had 13 points and nobody else had more than 7. An all around bad game as we closed out or final game at home. This has been a rough stretch with 6 straight losses and losses in 14 of our last 18 games (crazy to think we started the year 6-3!).

Overall Record: 10-18
Conference Record: 4-13
Home Record: 5-8
Road Record: 5-10
Ranking: NR

Abilene Christian (10-18) vs. Incarnate Word (4-24)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 49, Incarnate Word - 39. At halftime Incarnate Word had 17 points and Chris Vasques had 15. Vasques was outscoring Incarnate Word until there were 2 minutes left in the first half in a dominant performance. Vasques ended up with 17 points and 8 rebounds and Napoleon Ellingson had 11 points. It was nice to finish off the season with a win as we did not make the conference tournament.

We finished 10th place in the conference. The Athletic Director's goal was the avoid last place so we at least succeeded in that. We did have 5 conference wins but it is worth noting that those wins came against Central Arkansas, New Orleans (twice), Nicholls, and Incarnate Word and that none of those teams had more than 6 conference wins or 8 overall wins on the season. Also none of them made the conference tournament.

Conference Tournament



Stephen F. Austin won the conference tournament and is a 14 seed. Best of luck to them! Also Lamar may not have been able to make the NCAA tournament but they made the NIT as a 5 seed. The other Southland teams to make tournaments were Northwestern State as a 13 seed in the CBI and Sam Houston State as a 8 seed in the CIT.

Default 2000-2001 Season Wrapup

2000-2001 Season Wrapup

We have come to the end of the regular season and it is time for the postseason. Before getting to that here is a quick rundown on the season. The player of the year in the Southland Conference was PG David Dilworth from Stephen F. Austin. Dilworth averaged 12.8 PPG, 5.2 RPG, and 3.1 APG. The freshman of the year was SF Herbert Hanson from Lamar with 9.3 PPG, 5.7 RPG, and 1.8 APG. The coach of the year was Pat Knight of Lamar. I am sure it comes as no surprise that none of our players made any of the All-Conference teams. We are hoping to see at least one of our recruits make the All-Freshman team next year though.

Here is the end of season Top 25 rankings going into the NCAA tournament.

And here is the Mid-Major Top 25 going into the NCAA tournament. Right now the Big East and AAC are showing as a Mid-Major and that probably will not be the case moving forward. Maybe they will be left in but right now they really don't feel like Mid-Major type conferences.

Default March Madness

March Madness!

It is time for the inaugural NCAA tournament! Good luck to every team that made it!

First up is the West Region!



This region had a pretty boring first round as the only upset was 11 seed Oklahoma over 6 seed BYU. Oklahoma followed that up by trouncing 3 seed Wake Forest in the 2nd round. The Sooners weren't done there as they beat 2 seed Illinois in the Sweet 16 before falling to 1 seed UCLA who advanced to the Final Four!

Next up is the Midwest Region!



This region had a lot more happening in the first round and the biggest upset was 13 seed Northern Iowa beating 4 seed Marquette. 12 seed Minnesota topped 5 seed Memphis to set up a 12 vs. 13 matchup in the 2nd round! 10 seed North Carolina also beat 7 seed Illinois State. This region had our Southland representative Stephen F. Austin who fell to 3 seed Arizona by 15 in the first round. Minnesota won the 12 vs. 13 matchup to advance to the Sweet 16 and 6 seed Creighton pulled off a mini-upset vs. 3 seed Arizona to do the same. Oklahoma's run fell short as they lost to 1 seed Oklahoma State and 2 seed Wisconsin took down Creighton. Wisconsin won the battle of the heavyweights and will advance to the Final Four!

Next is the South Region!



We had two big upsets in this region as 11 seed Milwaukee beat 6 seed Texas and 10 seed Richmond (my alma mater) beat 7 seed Ohio State! In the 2nd round 8 seed Temple beat 1 seed Xavier but both Richmond and Milwaukee saw their dreams fall short. 4 seed West Virginia handled Temple in the Sweet 16 to set up a matchup with 3 seed Kentucky in the Elite Eight. West Virginia won that matchup and will be going to the Final Four!

Last we have the East Region!



This region had the biggest first round upset as 14 seed Cal State Northridge beat 3 seed Dayton by 12! The magic didn't last though as Northridge then lost to 6 seed Florida. Florida kept the magic alive though as they took down 2 seed Cincy and then 1 seed Louisville to advance to the Final Four!

Now for the Final Four!



UCLA took down West Virginia in a close one in the first game and Wisconsin easily beat Florida to set up our championship game! The championship was never all that close as UCLA won by 11 and took home the inaugural NCAA tournament trophy! Congratulations to the Bruins who came in as the #1 overall seed and backed it up! This Final Four had 1, 2, 4, and 6 seeds showing that the top teams weren't as good as expected!

Default 2000-2001 Senior Appreciation Day

2000-2001 Senior Appreciation Day

We have 4 seniors who will be departing us and this post is to pay homage to them. Two of them were starters this year and the other two only played sparingly.

Our first man up is SG Napoleon Ellingson. Ellingson was our starting SG all season and averaged 11.3 PPG, 2.5 RPG, and 1.4 APG. He was named player of the game 5 times and had career highs of 24 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists. He also had the most free throws made in a game in the entire Southland Conference this year with 14. He leaves this team as the highest scoring player in program history as well as the highest scoring game with the 24 points (he also holds spots 2, 3, and 4 on the list).

We went 11-18 this season which was better than I expected. We had some rough stretches and lost to some pretty bad teams but we also had a few narrow victories that could have easily been losses. Look for this number to increase next year as these incoming 4 freshmen look like they are already more developed than our current starters already are.

We were 343rd this season in points scored as well as defensive rebounds. We were dead last in offensive rebounds and 347th in assists. On the defensive side we were 12th in points allowed, 3rd in assists allowed, 9th in blocks allowed, and 10th in defensive rebounds. This is pretty useless to look at though because we played at a slow a pace as possible and also played all of the worst teams in the country which led to a lot of low scoring games. Teams scored fewer than 50 points against us 8 times this season and 3 of those times our opponents scored under 40 points. I also want to note that we reached 10 assists as a team in only 7 games this season.

Here are our stats for the season.

PF Joe Webb (***, #487 Overall)
SF Dudley O'Neill (**, #646 Overall)
SG Frank Lamda (***, #180 Overall)

This class is so much better than I ever expected but we got lucky with 3 local players who were all only considering in-state schools. O'Neill had no other schools in on him so we also got very lucky there.

We will also most likely be getting two walk-on players this year.

Our recruiting class ranked #97 in the nation and #2 in the conference. Nobody in the conference recruited a player better than 3 stars. This is absolutely huge for us. I absolutely do not expect to bring in another class like this ever but we are very thankful and I cannot wait for these players to grow together and lead our team.

 Eugenio Albano       10   SF   Fr   6-4  200   No   81      OK          Caddo Mills, TX
As you can see we have 7 upperclassmen as well as 6 freshmen. Two of these freshmen are walkons. Our two walkons are Jerald Zimmerman and Eugenio Albano. Zimmerman was a 1 star recruit and the #1,407 overall player and Albano was a 1 star recruit and the #1,800 overall player. To be completely honest these guys are both better than the upperclassmen we already have on the team which shows how little talent we have. There is a good chance these guys play serious minutes this season. These next two years will be crucial as we will fill 3 scholarship spots this year and 4 more the next.

Here is our call list for the upcoming season:

 Jochem Guyer          SF   6-6  217       *       High     Germany
Our budget was increased this year so instead of $6,000 per month to spend on recruiting we will have $6,250. This is a small change but will help as every dollar really counts when we have so little to spend. As you can see we do not have the same good fortune as last year where a ton of high quality players are interested in us. That was an anomaly. I thought about going after some higher type guys with "Average" interest but with how little money we have I think right now the best bet is to try and secure one or both of the 3 star guys interested. I will be scouting a lot of these guys and seeing how they are. Right now I would say our biggest need is at PG and I added a few guys with high assist rates in here.
