Basketball Recruiting / G Mika Adams-Woods (2019)
« on: August 17, 2018, 01:25:43 PM »
Per, we are in the top 8 for Mika Adams-Woods, a 2019 6'2" PG who will play at New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire - formerly of Syracuse, NY. Adams-Woods is on Albany City Rocks so I assume he knows Jeenathan.

Teams making his top 8: Nebraska, Nevada, (George) Mason, UMass, Siena, Buffalo, UNCG and ECU.

Per the article, he's already decided on 4 of his 5 official visits and Buffalo isn't among those schools.

247 has him listed as a 3 star prospect as does ESPN.

Not the "big home game" you are hoping for but information is trickling in from other teams releasing their non-conference schedules.

We will host St. Francis (PA) on November 6th.


An excellent interview was posted with Coach Oats on Chris Oliver's Basketball Podcast (which is a great coaching based podcast regardless of UB connections). Well worth a listen if you're interested in getting a bit into the weeds of Oats' coaching philosophy.

Chris Oliver also runs a great twitter account breaking down offensive and defensive sets:

The way I see it, the only thing keeping us from going 11 deep will be not having the minutes to go around. Keeping in mind our style of play and focusing on experience, here's the 5 guys I want to see out on the floor more than anyone else:

G Jordan
G Massinburg
G Caruthers
F Harris
F Perkins

Whether they start together or not, I don't really care. That grouping should average 27-30 minutes per player per game however you want to divide it up. I'm not sure there's anyone in the MAC that can adequately match up to the speed and athleticism of that lineup. Graves should be first off the bench & can slot into any guard spot. Having 2 four star recruits coming off the bench is a luxury that I doubt any MAC school has had in a very long time if ever. If we plan on playing Williams as a similar hybrid 3-4 like how Harris is used then forward depth seems less of a weakness - we'd be able to utilize McRae/Fagan/Bertram in the rotation at 5. Lord knows we have enough capable guards to keep 3 on the court all game.

Another very talented guard on the roster. I'm guessing he'll have to sit next year? sit one / play one? He should greatly help the transition from the Perkins/Massinburg/Harris era.

Too bad about Hamlet but I wish him well. He's going to make a great combo guard somewhere in D1.

Cigar City Brewing, here I come.
I actually had one or more samples of their fine work this past winter in Florida :-)  I could handle Cigar City Brewing - Redux...

They just started selling in New York too. I wouldn't mind going to the source for some Jai Alai. Tyree, Anthony and Khalil will be worth the price of admission for a bowl game this year.

Some recruiting scoop site tweeted out Higgs committed to VT and Higgs responded by saying it’s false. Sounds like we are still in the running.

I think this is another uphill battle. Higgs has a visit to VT scheduled for the 13th and 14th and announces his decision on the 15th. I’m not sure we even had an official visit remaining for him but I didn’t hear anything about him being on campus.

Buffalo Bulls Football / Re: Thoughts on Bucky's Latest Article

Not only is Bucky out the TBN door, but Jerry Sullivan is on the way out or out already. TBN is a sinking ship. The net effect of these departures is that there will be less coverage of college athletics, UB in particular, as well as all other non Bills and Sabres sports. Like them or not, this is bad for UB and all of WNY.

Agreed. Never a good sign when local writers are either jumping ship or getting bought out. I'd rather have opinions to read that I disagree with than no coverage at all.

I absolutely love the scheduling. I wish the Belfast field was a bit stronger but that's not UB's fault.

West Virginia, Marquette, and now Syracuse in 2018. The front office is doing everything it can to give UB national recognition next year. It's up to Oats and company to make some noise.

Curry will announce his decision this afternoon.

Carlos Curry is on an official visit to UB this weekend. He just visited Ole Miss where Kermit Davis (formerly of MTSU) ended up.

Per his twitter:

That really sucks but I can't blame him. He deserves to start somewhere.

I agree with admin. I liked Bearden’s play when he was here but we are stacked at PG. I’d rather continue to pursue another big for the last scholarship rather than stretching our guard’s minutes even thinner.
