Jon Rothstein tweeted that we will host the Terriers(Kenpom rating-344). He also tweeted that Cam Johnson has an "ACC hold" on his transfer.

The ACC ought to get rid of its transfer rule. It made sense perhaps 40 years ago when there were no more than 2 teams per conference in the tournament, 8 or 9 in the conference and you would face that player 2 or 3 times a year.. But now, with 15 teams, most of whom play each other only once a year, such a restriction only hurts the ability of the conference to collect for getting it's seventh or eighth team in.




The ban on intraconference transfers is a very good thing...

First and foremost, it prevents kids, who were lightly regarded during the recruiting process, chose a lower echelon programs, and then blossomed into a really good players, from being enticed away by elite programs. Without the rule, it isn't hard to imagine that a player like Boston College's Ky Bowman might be lured (via back channels) to Duke, a school which could very well use him. Inter-conference tampering can be problematic, but it is a bit easier within the organization. And, when it happens, things get ugly. I don't think the ACC has aspirations to emulate the SEC. (Or, imagine Duke or UNC getting word to Bonzie that his chances would be better at playing in a national championship game if he were going to school in North Carolina.)

Yes, it's weird to follow p our own post, but I just noticed that Johnson has now been offered by Kentucky, Michigan, So. Carolina, Florida and other very good teams. But no ACC. He'll end up with a team that knocks an ACC team out of the tournament. As well Chase Jeter.


He has an ACC block on him *

I didn't think you could block or limit a grad transfer but

At least in terms of what teams I enjoy saying as if their crawl abbreviation were intended to be pronounced phonetically.


We actually played both during my time at ND

Although I believe it was in different seasons.

At the time, St. Francis (PA) had a player who was deserving of a place on any all-time all-name team: Napoleon Lightning.


I think they go by St Francis Brooklyn now (STFRNBKLN?) *
