I am not hip to the reasons people don't want Trimble here (or if there are any Maymon parental issues). That said, I'd welcome him here if he wants to be here. Was impressed with what I saw out him this year. Really great motor on defense, good shooter from 3, and a good distributor. I get garbage time isn't the best time to judge, but thought in a few I watched where he ran the second unit he made the team better through his presence and composure. Downside is he can't hit FT

Agree. I’d be happy with him. We will be in need of experienced guards in 2 years after Kam and Stevie depart.

I agree.  I'd love to have him but I don't think you'd use the one available spot on him.

Well, that depends.  If Sean's injury is as bad as people here have said and he is looking at not playing until January or Feb... should he just RS and not burn a year of eligibility?  That'd make room for a second portaler.

Marquette has reached out to Seton Hall transfer Dre Davis.

Not really sure how he'd fit, but interesting nonetheless.

Think people may have missed this amongst the Aidoo conversation. Davis is a proven, athletic wing/forward that plays bigger than he's listed (6'6). He has fantastic advanced stats. Doesn't fit the mold of what I figured we'd be after (either a ball handler or big man), but a great player regardless. Would be very happy with him.

No, it would not.  Sean's scholarship is still counted.   Until someone departs, MU has one scholarship available.

He's awesome.  Probably would've been in the Final Four had we had him this year.

I'm pretty sure the scholarship numbers don't matter that much with NIL.  You can give a walk-on enough to pay for his scholarship and then some and he won't count towards the 13.  I think Musselman did that last year with the guard who transferred in from Washington.

After the past few years you don't really visit UConn and say no, assuming they want you as well.

The Huskies are about to get another monster in the post.

Am I mis-remembering, or didn't Hurley recently make a big deal about how he does not use the portal to build his program (and praised Shaka for doing likewise)?

I don't believe I saw that.   He has praised Shaka/Marquette culture, but not sure it related to the portal.  Maybe I missed it though!

If he did we should have all had a good laugh. He’s been a huge beneficiary of transfers into UConn.

I think you may remembering that he was talking about tampering with existing players and Shaka didn’t do that.

You do not know what other options there are. You can only get players that want to come.

If that's Clingan's replacement, I'll admit, it seems a bit underwhelming. Especially considering the bigs in the portal right now.

Based on Marquette’s needs I think that slot would be better used for a big or a better shooter than Trimble.

But you are correct, I don’t know what the other options are or who wants to come.

He said he wasn’t looking forward to the portal conversations ……..not that he wouldn’t be involved.

His praise of Shaka was that they weren’t tampering ……..he intimidated that some of his players were being contacted when they weren’t in the portal.

He added Spencer through the portal last year……..so he clearly isn’t against using it……but he doesn’t want to build his program with nothing but Portal guys as some have done recently.

Trimble shot 41.9% from 3 last year.
Assume what I say should be in teal if it doesn't pass the smell test for you.

Gonna go out on a limb here and suggest Hurley might know what he's doing.

Yes but a small sample size. Only shot 31 all year.

Don’t get me wrong I’d love to have him but there might be better fits out there.

Personally, I'd like to see us land Robbie Avila, Malik Mack, Vladislav Golden, or Trimble.

Don’t know if it has been mentioned here yet?  Seth Trimble is j.p. Tokotos younger brother. So he’s from Menominee falls

I don’t know much about Trimble, but I’ve got a buddy who’s a die hard UNC fan so naturally I asked.
This was his response-

Trimble is SUPER athletic and has potential to be any conferences defense player of the year. 6'2-6'3 so pro position is point guard. His shot was really a weakness but shot 41% from 3 this year in very low volume (almost all wide open corner 3) has nba potential if he gets more minutes. Leaving bc RJ Davis possibly back, Cadeau is a top 10ish college PG (sophmore) and UNC is bringing in 2 top 10 HS wings/guards so likely to get less than his 17 minutes per game this past season

This guys a huge UNC homer so his data might be a bit on the peachier side than the full reality, but still struck me as someone I could really see Shaka clamoring in the portal if he goes that route, especially depending on what he knows about SJ22.

As we all know Shaka REALLY values defense, and I’m sure the idea of someone coming in with 2 seasons left that has that high of a potential defensive ability, and can run the point and possibly even shoot enough to keep defenses honest has got to be enticing.
The parent issue I’m sure Shaka is in tune with, guy seems to know every aspect of his program inside and out.

If Shaka wants him we should obviously all want him, and if he ends up coming to Marquette look no further than that defensive ability in a position of need due to departure and injury.

As for Dre Davis- there was a point in the season where I mentioned that my wish for this offseasons portal was to get the best scorer possible in any position you could get him at and fit the pieces as necessary.
Dre can score, and can get to the line efficiently and shoot a high percentage, as well as rebound and block shots. There isn’t much to not like from an aspect of he can pretty much do a lot of the things the current roster if weak at, so he would be a big upgrade in many facets of the game that aren’t current strengths.
