Watching the semifinal game, it definitely appears part of their culture.
That's somewhat common among some private schools in this state (and some public schools for that matter). But some of the athletically successful private schools in this state expect different treatment from refs, umps, officials, etc...its mind-boggling at times what coaches and parents will say to you.

Brinkmeyer has been putting up good numbers this weekend at AAU. One of the weirder recruiting scenarios I can remember .

Mims is really good. You could do a lot worse.

Oregon State, Northern Iowa, Drake, Utah, and Minnesota have all reached out to 6-10 2018 center Joseph Hedstrom of Hopkins/@MNCometsElite

He's only got offers from NDSU, Denver, and USD so far.

It's pretty remarkable that he's getting offers from schools that haven't even reached out to him yet.

I can find nothing about this guy. The only stat I could find was that he leads his team with 25.2 pts a game, and I'm not sure how recent that was, because a lot of the other stats hadn't been updated since November (like that the team only played three games).

So apparently he had a streak of 50 free throws in a row, and it looks like he might actually average more than 25.2 pts a game. Usually has a very good night (30+) or an okay night (~15), not a whole lot of in between.

Outside of Ali, Jordan and Kwadzo it's pretty much the case.

Adam Koch
Jake Koch
Bennett Koch (the crazy name)
Lucas O'Rear (Irish, and he was crazy, but not a crazy name
Mark Sonnen
Johnny Moran - potentially the whitest name ever
Adam McDermott
Spencer Haldeman - I take back what I said about Johnny
Ted Frieman
Jeremy Morgan
Hunter Rhodes
Jordan Ashton
Luke McDonnell
Chip Rank
Seth Tuttle
Nate Buss
Matt MacDougall
Klint Carlson - make it a C and I might take back what I said about Spencer
Matt Morrison
Tyler Lange
Anthony James


UNI's roster is the epitome of generic random name generators.

A guy like Tywhon Pickford would be absolutely insane on our roster, name wise. Look at it currently. Juwan and Isaiah are as non generic as it gets, and Isaiah is one of the oldest names in the world. I guess we have Rafael De Souza, but I'd assume in Brazil that's a pretty generic sounding name.

If we were to sign Keyser Soze (Usual Suspects), that's a game changer.

Can't bust his ass up the court, but he's good at getting into the opposing teams head.

Actually, he'd have a great change of pace move. He'd go from bad leg and gimpy hand to sprinting up the court at the blink of an eye. Also, no one would ever foul him and risk being killed afterwards.

I looked it up, Rafeal/Rapheal has pretty much always been one of the 10 most common names in Brazil. I say always - which is basically as far back as I can find data from sites I trust. Through most of that part of the world it's a top 50-100 name. In France it's a top 20 name, and through pretty much all of the Swiss border region it seems to be a top 10-15 name.

So, essentially, Rafeal is equivalent to any variant of Thomas, Christopher, Daniel, Paul, Mark, David, Jason, Matthew, etc... in America.

Sousa is the third most common surname in Brazil. Making it the equivalent to Williams.

Essentially Rafeal's name, in America, would be David Williams.

That's David De Williams to you.

Yep, we're officially bored.

...... So anyone know if it's just going to be just Jones on the visit, or if they'll do multiple on the same day, like the other day?

His Youtube highlights that I watched last night weren't anything all that impressive. He appears to be a set shooter, doesn't really elevate, doesn't do much off the dribble and makes Bennett look strong. Appears to just catch and shoot with maybe an inch of elevation on his jumper. I didn't pay attention to how old the highlight film was, but maybe he's become more explosive since that time. Seems to me the comment about scoring 30+ or only 15 would make sense. Based on the film, he could light up a smaller team from the perimeter, but put a quick defender on him and he could struggle to do anything.

So....Nate Buss and a lesser extent Paul Jesperson.

Yeah, there's a role for a player like that on our style of program.

Wow we are really going after Maple Grove. First Davison, then Pickford, now Jones. Hopefully that is a promising sign for Pickford's interest as well

Drake had offered Jones just 24 hours prior

He absolutely is. His first assistant was the head coach at DeLaSalle that has won like 512 consecutive state titles...

Isn't Jones out of Woodbury? Or am I thinking of a different Mike Jones? It's not a unique name, after all.

17 recruiting is done. Maybe we can find a guard out there who could really compliment Pickford and Juwan. But where to look?

I'm hoping with all the time spent in MN on Pickford that we land another good recruit from MN as well. I'm guessing Jake and staff were recruiting 2018 kids as well. Would love to add AJ and Shea Mitchell next year. I'm hoping we find out this summer instead of April for the 2018 class.
