Re: Offered: Kolton Mitchell, 6’4” PG

This is one the most frustrating things I think with Muller. We still technically only have one point guard on the roster, and my question becomes what if he doesn't get the waiver or gets hurt. Then we are back to not having a PG. Unless he is absolutely confident that Dedric Boyd could run the po...

Re: One Scholarship Left

There are various mentions throughout some threads about what to do with the final scholarship. Figured it would be easier to have it all in one place. https://www.pantagraph.com/sports/college/illinois-state/ex-wichita-state-point-guard-to-join-isu-men-s/article_1f0b5997-1def-55a8-9778-8ef741e07df...

Re: So how are we feeling now?

Chastain is not guard. Hillsman is not a guard. These guys are not close to being guards. They have no lateral quickness basically at all. So we have 2 returning guards.....one of whom played last year. We have a walk-on guard. We signed two freshman guards. We have another JUCO guard who might be a...

I like this kid`s game and attitude. Sign with us Dooda! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk Based on Muller's comments on signing Torres, I'm thinking we'll only add Mitchell if he's willing to redshirt this year. This seems right. This is the one area where I think Muller gets a little bullish o...

Re: Antonio Reeves to ISU

If Reeves can defend he will play a lot as a Frosh. He will instantly be one of the best shooters on the team. And he’s big enough to score around the rim. Really quick release and soft touch 8 feet in. Gotta get in the weight room and work on lateral quickness. He reminds me of Tyler Brown. Maybe n...

Re: Ricky Torres

He looks good in videos (they all do though).

A true point guard no doubt.

I REALLY would like to know how this went down. A call from Marshall? Belcher? Back story has to be interesting.

Get back on D. Don’t turn it over. Get rebounds and blocks.

We don’t need another Yarbrough. We need team-first, high character do your job better than everyone guys.

I hope he turns out to be better than #10
Iowa guy and SIU guy turns out to be worse

Re: Offered: Kolton Mitchell, 6’4” PG

One of the final 3 scholarships will be used on one of these two freshmen pgs. Not sure on the other two. I'd guess a sit-out transfer and then best available (juco or frosh). Maybe even 2 sit out guys. :pray: please not 2 sit out guys. Take both of these PGs. We've been long on sit out guys and sh...

I'm almost positive that the two most important things that win Valley Tournament championships are: 1) Strong consistent guard play, effort and depth 2) Strong team defense If you look at the past league champs.....Bradley, Loyola, Wichita, UNI, Indy St., SIU teams in mid-2000s......all v strong te...

Can anyone comment on whether Muller is as passionate about Redbird Hoops now vs. when he got to Normal 7+ years ago? There was clearly a fire burning in his belly when he got here....talking about scheduling for at-large bids.....competing with Wichita for league titles. I don't hear any of that no...

We have 3 scholarships available and signing day has already come and gone and there is nothing going on here? Isn’t that a concern for people?
