You mean the 30th overall pick in last night's WNBA draft?!
getting drafted in the 3rd round makes you a top 30 pick? damn WNBA a lot smaller than I thought
12 teams currently.

Brendan Adams is visiting UConn, for anyone who is interested.
Wouldn’t be surprised if he commits there since he already signed with Hurley once.
Burton is taking his final 2 official visits to Butler and Wichita State.
we have no chance for him now
This is what happens sometimes. Let’s wait and see how it shakes out.
I’d be thrilled if Burton picks Mason, but with all these transfers still out on the market, we’ll find a really good player to take the last available scholarship if he doesn’t.
Also, our PG of the future is already signed so no need to panic.
Can’t wait to see what our staff is able to do with Jamal.
So with the last scholarship would you guys prefer burton/freshman or a grad transfer?
Don't want a grad transfer. Our starting 5 is pretty set next year, and even our bench should be pretty solid. It's already going to be tough finding minutes for the freshmen coming in and there's no reason to crowd them out with a grad transfer. Whoever is sitting 11-13 on the depth chart is going to find scant minutes next year, I think.
If we're going to take a transfer, let it be someone who will sit out this season and be ready to play after Otis and Grayer graduate and will also give us multiple years (4 pretty huge players for us graduate over the next 2 seasons).
I do want a grad transfer. It'll have to be a guy though that can come in and give 10 pts a game minimum. I want Otis and Grayer to taste the big dance, we all know they deserve it. I don't think having just 2 seniors is enough to get there next season.

Whoever it is will have to be good enough to push Kier to the bench, because I don't see a grad transfer coming here to come off the bench. So, I guess in that scenario, if we can find a shooting guard good enough to make Kier a bench player, pull the trigger. Otherwise, I'm more concerned with what happens after Otis and Grayer graduate, because I think our 9 man rotation next season is good enough to compete for an NCAA tournament bid, especially given what happened in the A-10 in the offseason (Otis, Kier, Grayer, Mar, Reuter; Boyd, Greene/JDS, AJ, Calixte).
So, Burton is in Indy at Butler and he just posted a pic of a newspaper article about him that ran in the Indy paper.
This kind of pisses me off. Wouldn’t it be nice to have something like this at Mason - a media outlet that knowingly or not, covers and helps recruit players to your team? It would be one thing if Butler was in the middle of nowhere, but this is in the Indy paper. I don’t think that the Washington Post is going to do anything like this, but it sure would be nice to have one of the smaller local N Va papers cover our team a little more.
Rant over. Just hate seeing something like this make any impact with a kid when it’s something out of our staff’s control.
Wow they are really rolling out the red carpet for this kid. With all this attention he probably thinks he'll be a starter from day one. If he isn't Butler better be ready for him to transfer after year one lol.

Actually surprised they even brought him in. It looks like they're stacked in the back court and thin in the front court next season.
This is the main reason we’ve been connected to so many “sit one, play two” guys.
As much as we all want Otis and Grayer to play in an NCAA tournament, the staff isn’t bringing in a grad transfer to potentially disrupt the chemistry they’ve spent the past three years building.
We either have a good enough 12-man roster to dance next season or we don’t. Unless something big changes in the coming weeks, it’s highly doubtful they’re looking to add a one-and-done player.
Only a few questions really going into next year:
1) Defense: can we finally play defense at a high enough level for 40 minutes?
2) Can Kier find his 3-point shot in the offseason?
3) How big is Greene's sophomore jump going to be? We saw how good his on ball defense can be. Is he going to become a consistent threat on the offensive side of the ball to lock down the backup guard position, or will JDS find himself getting those minutes?
I'm pretty confident in whoever is going to start at the 5. I'm really confident in the other starters (Otis, Grayer, Mar). I think anything we get outside of our top 8 is a bonus.
Adams to U.Conn., as expected
We are all pulling for DP and staff this week in the recruiting dept. Would be pretty big to finally beat out these other schools for Burton.
