Little Ricky's first big recruit? :unsure:

Really wouldn’t have minded him as a 12/13th end of bench big. Good luck to whatever he chooses.

As it was, he was our number one backup big -- or rather non-big, since we didn't have a legitimate big to begin with. But he seemed to be a terrific teammate and a hard worker. And like you, I wish him nothing but good luck -- and somewhere where he can get some substantial PT.

I second Redmannorth's post. So thankful for the commitments of guys like Sears, Rutherford & McGriff when CMA really needed to field a team late in the day. Wish Damien all the best, suspect he'll transfer somewhere closer to home.
You were a true team guy who gave us some good minutes and always gave 100% effort.

Roberts already said he’s coming back.


I wonder how much the injury played a part in that, though. Hopefully zero percent, but it's certainly easier to stay put and get treatment than be viewed as damaged goods while shopping for a new program.

Agree with you and glad you mentioned Rutherford, who was a big part of salvaging this season. Didn't expect that much, but wish he had another year with SJU.

Like all the kids on the team, Rutherford put forth as much of an effort as anyone could have expected. He was a relentless defender who caused lots of problems for opposing teams, especially when we pressed. He also made some huge shots for us. He was a much bigger contributor then his stat line indicates.
