I wonder if former MU Target, Darlinstone Dubar, will put his name in the transfer portal this year or Go Straight to Pros.Still has one final year of elibigility

Having an Excellent Season with the Hofstra Pride. Averaging 18 PPG 6.8 Boards and shooting 39.7 from 3. Has played consistently well all year .

Hamilton, Amadou, Parham, Owens.  12 scholarships accounted for.  Unless there are departures, I don't see arrivals.

conjecture by me…I see Amadou going one of two ways…RS similar to Sacar Anim a few years back, or he’s assisted in finding a program more suitable to his talent level so Shaka can bargain in the portal.

I’ve suggested a RS in a post elsewhere as well. If he could not get minutes yesterday……

Agreed.  Though I assume he was also not feeling well.  Then again, I also assume he's already filled out his portal paperwork.

There’s a reason Al only plays in garbage time. No surprise to me that he didn’t play.

Dont disagree at all. If the coaches feel he has upside, a RS ala Sacar or McCasskill back in the 90s, would seem appropriate. If not, well, he is taking up roster space. We shall see.

If Sean is still out, I’d like to see us add an experienced PG from the portal.

So, there was this player not too long ago who played only 38 minutes his freshmen year and didn't look the part at all.

Not saying Amadou is going to turn into this player whose progressed immensely over his time at MU, but you can't read too much into his limited minutes on a very veteran team competing at the highest levels.

Would have to be one willing to come off the bench.

Shaka has said time and time again that he isn't recruiting the portal over guys he already has and I imagine the lineup you saw starting last night is what they are starting next year.

Our guys hung with a top team in the country on their home court for 36 minutes. I think MU will be fine in the future.

At least MU's future is here in the present. What's Creighton, Providence, Hall, Nova, Georgetown, DePaul Scoop saying where they need to completely portal next season?

We’ve seen this movie before.

Shaka sees these kids every day and he knows exactly who he thinks will be able to contribute at this level and who he thinks won’t be able to.

Keeyan, who was one of his recruits to Texas and then followed him to Marquette, moved onto greener pastures. You could argue that maybe it was the players wish, possible, but if Coach saw more in practice he would have likely gotten a bit more run in the games and Shaka would have kept him at Marquette.

Not saying the Al situation is the same because I don’t see the practices.
From a time on the court standpoint it would seem very similar imo.
Same happened with Emarion and Wrightsil after their injuries.
Shaka supported them to the fullest and then helped them move on.

Let’s not forget that Ben is on the up and up and Royce, Caedin are also in the fold, so there’s traffic.
Shaka knows though and he and Al will do the right thing one way or the other

That’s not quite what Shaka has said. But ultimately I don’t think he adds anyone through the portal.

Caveat here is that the coaches would have faith in him for a RS.

For the past 8, maybe 9 years I believe at least one player has left the program and not a declaration for the NBA draft.

The odds are high that someone will leave, but who knows.  If Kolek leaves, then your PG starter or backup is Norman, who has been to say the least underwhelming.  Maybe another summer can help him out.  If someone else should leave, I presume Shaka would look in the guard position and then hope to land Nigel James or Nyk Lewis for 2025.  Maybe Burton from Notre Dame wants out of that crapshow in South Bend. There will be plenty of names in the portal, but will Shaka change his portal mindset.

I have no idea of what type of player Hamilton is, but he is 6ft9 and goes 250 and has probably been in the weight room everyday. I read an article somewhere in which he said he loves to play defense and rebound.  Amadou is 6ft 9 and maybe 210 and can't see the floor.  Does the staff sees something in Hamilton?  Maybe he is a bruiser MU could use. Watching Gold play center yesterday, on offense he is on the three point line, waiting for the pass to shoot.  But this leads him away from the basket for offense rebounds and must be way more consistent with his three pointers.  He made a nice drive to the basket once though.  Maybe it works out, maybe not. 

Looking forward to 3/18/24 when the official portal opens and see which players across all programs enter.  Last year was pretty crazy, this year will be nuts.

Question for the gurus:

Can any player enter the portal starting on 3/18, even if his team is still active? Or are there restrictions on players whose teams are NCAAT bound?

Also, on what date does the portal close? It’s gotta be open well past the Final Four, right?

Thanks. Good info.

So theoretically a player on an NCAAT-bound team could enter the portal before the NCAAs - not that anyone would.
