DJ Newbill-New 2010 Commit?
« on: January 30, 2010, 02:04:24 PM »
http://twitter.com/NorthstarBball/status/8421337987

6'3" 170 lb wing out of Philadelphia area.  Attended Marquette's Speciality Camp in August 2009.

Yes, I know it's not a big, but he just dropped 64 in a game 3 weeks ago  :o

Interesting.  Didn't expect that - if true.

And just to copy the tweet

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, DJ Newbill '10 of Strawberry Mansion (PA) committed to Marquette today.

A bit off-topic.  From the story above

After Newbill rang up 64 points in Mansion's 105-14 Public C destruction of visiting W.B. Saul, Razorbacks' boss Paul Winters described himself as being "disappointed in the lack of sportsmanship."

Earlier, he had almost caused an all-time scene.

"They pressed fullcourt until the score was 37-0," Winters said. "I went over to the refs and told them, 'If he doesn't call off the dogs, I'm going to walk out onto the middle of the court two times. You'll give me two techs and the game will be over.'

(Games may not continue if a coach, without an assistant on hand, is ejected.)

"They stopped pressing then. But they were still trying to steal the ball - at one point, we began stalling - and they left the kid in the whole game. Well, almost. I'd say he played 30 minutes."


Is this just a PA rule or a natiowide rule?

LOVE IT!!  Don't know alot about the kid, but article says he was getting widespread D1 interest.  Plays in Philly, great basketball city...

We all know we need a big, and we still have 1 scholarship to go get one with.  I think Buzz's plan is to play 40 minutes of hell ball, will press a ton, and spread floor and utlize similar offensive strategy as we've seen this year..which has been very effective.
"I'm not sure Cadougan would fix the problems on this team. I'm not even convinced he would be better for this team than DeWil is."

Wow .. what a game story .. 105-14 .. they were full court pressing until 37-0 when the (losing) coach said he'd get two technicals and go home if they didn't stop pressing.

What terrible sportsmanship on the winning coach's side.   D-bag.

Looks like a story similar to DJO where others had interest, but not many were expecting him to qualify?  Meanwhile, Buzz had the full court press on all along? (pardon the pun...)

Quote
Newbill, who recently became academically qualified for freshman eligibility, is receiving widespread Division 1 interest. He scored his 64 points, according to Mansion assistant coach Stan Laws, by shooting 24-for-30 from the floor and 16-for-17 at the line. His by-quarter breakdown: 14-18-15-17. The record came on a layup.

No record/rating on Scout or Rivals site.  How far under the radar is he???

Can't believe Buzz would sign another guard, when needs are bigmen.  DJO, Buycks, Blue, Cadougan, Smith and now this kid. Oh well, if true Buzz has one slot left.   

He put up 64 on a team that scored a total of 14 points in the game.  14 in the entire game.

Hope he is not from the same conference that Roseboro played in.

I know I'm in the minority on this, but even in HS basketball (unless you're playing an academy for the blind, or something like that), if you don't want the other team to run up the score:  stop them.

The odds of finding 2 bigs that are able to contribute next year were not very good. I believe Buzz is still targeting one, but to take 2 just for the sake/desperiation of taking 2...doesnt make much sense.

This looks like this is a DJO-esqe signing....at least the way things went down.

ESPN Evaluation... http://insider.espn.go.com/ncb/recruiting/tracker/player?recruitId=101225&season=2010

October, 2009: Newbill is a strong and physical combo-guard with a good feel for the game. He isn't an explosive athlete or great long-range shooter, but can play both guard positions, knows how to get to the rim, can handle and pass versus pressure, and makes good decisions with the ball in his hands. Newbill attacks the basket going north to south, attacking close-outs, or immediately off the catch. He is a good passer off the dribble and finishes well at the rim with both hands, using his strength to seal off defenders and finish away from his body. He isn't overwhelmingly quick and so needs to be hidden a little bit defensively but uses his size and strength to his advanta

I think that's terrible sportsmanship on the losing coach's part. You're tossing my guys a savage beating and am helpless to stop you so I'll just threaten to quit to make you play a less dominant style of ball. Weak.

Newbill is a skilled big guard who can really score and find teammates.

Look for Buzz to try to find a forward who can play on the inside and outside, like Hayward, for the last scholarship. Will be tough to find, but he's definitely checking out every corner of the United States trying to find a guy who fits that bill.

6'3" - 6'4", plays the 2-3.  The 60-some points were against a grade school team based on that story.  Can't find him on Scout or Rivals, ESPN had him as the #170 shooting guard.  Even from PA, though it's tougher competition than Quakertown it just makes it sound more like another Roseboro situation.  If the Twitter post is true, hopefully due diligence was done before taking in a player at a position we don't need at all when we have a gaping hole with open playing time.  As a completely unknown aside from blogs and Twitter, is this more DJO or more Roseboro?

Is bma in the house to perhaps tell us what we (might) be getting?

It's official!

Marquette Head Coach Buzz Williams made it four commitments from four states in his incoming class of 2010 today. DJ Newbill '10, a 6'4 shooting guard from Strawberry Mansion (PA), committed to the Golden Eagles this morning, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Newbill joins a class that was ranked #22 in my Class of 2010 Team Recruiting Rankings. Even with the addition of Newbill, the group will stay at #22. Newbill is the fourth member of the class, which already includes 6'3 SG Vander Blue of Memorial (WI), 6'6 SF Jamail Jones of Montverde Academy (FL), and 6'1 PG Reggie Smith of Thornton Township (IL). Blue is ranked #34 in Northstar Basketball's Class of 2010 Terrific 125, and Jones checks in at #88.

Again, in news being first reported by Northstar Basketball, DJ Newbill has verbally committed to Marquette.

Yeah, and it seems to fit with Buzz's philosophy with recruiting.  

Buzz recruits for points, wings, and bigs. In Buzz's classification, he probably views our roster next year like this:

Points: Cadougan, Smith (combo)
Wings: DJO, Buycks, Blue (combo), Jones, Butler
Bigs: Fulce, Otule, Mbao, and Williams

You can argue about Fulce and Williams being wings or bigs, but with how they play (and their lack of lateral quickness), they're both bigs until proven otherwise.  Unless you wanted to redshirt Mbao, adding 2 bigs makes limited sense, but only if both bigs are clearly better than what you have in Mbao.  

Buzz wants guys that can play, and if this guy can play, why not bring him in? There were a lot of similar sentiments that we should have used DJO's spot for another big, and that's worked out pretty well.

I guess the operative word is DJ. How many DJ's will this program end of with?

Here's a scary thought. Is a guess currently on the team or committed possibly leaving?

I take this to mean that Buzz is committed to Mbao and Otule at the 5, because that last scholarship needs to go to a legit 4 (although after seeing Jimmy Butler match up against the UCONN bigs today, it may not be as much of a need as I thought).
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

It is even more basic than that...Buzz classifies guys as "dribble guys" and "non-dribble guys."

For 2010-11...

Dribble Guys = JB, DB, DJO, JC, VB, JJ, RS, DN
Non Dribble Guys = JF, CO, YM, EW, (Final 2010 Scholly)
