    Thanks for the heads up! If they win, could face VCU alumni in next round.

    Checked the bracket and they won their first two games handily, stats for each:

    Shevon looks to be doing pretty well. Would be awesome if the Raptors called him up. With Leonard on the team they could make the finals. GMU rep in the finals would be awesome.

    I hope you all caught the TBT game, or at least the end. Allen went off and brought his team back from a large defecit to eventually tie the game at 86. His team had what looked like a clean steal and Allen quickly got down the court for what would have been an easy fast break game winning basket, but a foul was called and the other team hit the game winning FT.

    Oh yea, other team (Overseas Elite) is the 3 time defending champs and have never lost a game in TBT. Allen almost singlehandedly ended that, was the best player on the court at the end of the game.

    Unfortunately VCU's team won their game so the guys also missed out on a chance to beat them in the quarterfinals.

    I watched this, that was a BS call at the end (if anything, the offensive player traveled). Allen was getting a lot of props on the broadcast.

    Not sure what resources it would take, but I’d love to see a all-Mason alumni team participate in TBT in the future.

    Probably why that team is undefeated in the tournament three years running...

    After Colangelo decided he wanted to return to Colgan, the school system cleared up any confusion by issuing a statement Wednesday that supported Colangelo’s stance.

    “The proposed updates are still under review and have not been approved by the school board. Both the current and the proposed policy and regulation allow a PWCS employee to own a private business and coach in PWCS,” the statement said. “In other words, it is perfectly acceptable for coaches to own outside businesses. PWCS continues to review the draft policy and regulation on conflicts of interest and possible impacts of any changes on all PWCS stakeholders. As stated earlier, PWCS does and will continue to allow coaches to own outside businesses and continue coaching in the School Division.”

    Colangelo said he isn’t sure where the miscommunication started, but he doesn’t fault Huckestein or Healey. Huckestein, Colangelo said, was relaying what he had been told.


    “My principal and AD back me,” Colangelo said. “There have been no issues in my files as a coach.”

    To keep everything transparent, Colangelo said he signed a statement at the start of the 2018 prep baseball season to ensure Colgan there was no conflict of interest between his two jobs.

    “They wanted to make sure there weren’t too many Stars on Colgan’s team,” Colangelo said. “There is less than 30 percent.”

    Colangelo was hired as Colgan’s first baseball coach when the school opened in the fall of 2016. In two seasons, the Sharks went 17-27, including going 12-11 in 2019. Colgan returns a number of key players led by second-team, all-state outfielder and East Carolina commitment Ryley Johnson.

    A former standout at Hylton High School and George Mason University, Colangelo played for three major-league teams.

    Colangelo, who also runs Colangelo Baseball, said he rents fields at Battlefield, Patriot and Brentsville as well.

    “Something was filtered down that was incorrect,” Colangelo said. “No one is coming clean, but for me I’m a fighter. My income comes from my MLB pension, not from these fields.”

    I can understand an issue if Colangelo wasn't paying the high school for use of the field. But since he is, why is there even a thought that would be conflict of interest? Wouldn't the school want him to rent from them, his employer, than go and rent a different field?

    Am I missing something?

    When Porter arrived at George Mason his vertical was measured at 30 inches, last month at Nevada it was measured at 45.5 inches. In 4 years Porter had increased his vertical by 50% and had added 40 lbs. Physically Porter bears little resemblance to the thin High School player at Potomac High that relied on his height and raw talent.

    Porter has great hands, handles low bounce passes into the post with the adroitness of a first baseman scooping balls out of the dirt. He is agile for a man his size and possesses rare athleticism that has ended up getting him into foul trouble from time to time as he sometimes relies on that athleticism instead of sound fundamentals and footwork defensively. What can we expect to see from Porter this year at Nevada?

    Don’t expect Porter to rack up 35 minutes plus a game this year for Nevada, and it is not just a question of stamina, Nevada has a ton of players that so far have earned playing time. Last season Nevada often played like a team in foul trouble, and with their very short bench, they were always just a couple of whistles away from impending disaster. That will not be a major concern this season, so expect Porter to intimidate, alter and block shots while on the court. On the offensive end of the court expect Nevada to use the lob pass to take advantage of Porter’s size and jumping ability.

    Wow, so the Colts have two former college basketball players playing TE - Erik Swope was a PF at Miami.

    Overall, Miami basketball players have scored more TD's in the NFL so far this year (4), than the Miami Football team has in their last two games.
