An article today in the Hartford Courant on Brimah. Great shot blocker. Challenged offensively. Interesting paragraph from the article ="A handful of schools had shown interest, like Georgetown (according to Brimah), South Carolina, Florida International." No mention of LaSalle.
G always says you only talk about the players you get and not the ones you don't. I sure hope we can land some good talented big man. We need some who are athletic. If G can do this our team will be set for a couple of years.
See the post above where Brimah indicates that LaSalle was not in his final list of schools - so why the regret comment? Stats for the Kentucky game - 13 minutes / zero points / 4 personal fouls. He struggled when he had the ball in his hands. Next year UConn has several big talented big men coming in. More that likely Brimah will remain a 10 minute a game spot/role player.
Kromah played some good minutes and really helped the Huskies. Hope we can get a 6' 7" 5th year senior like that this year (as I noted in another post a few weeks ago). Really would fill a void from both an experience and positional standpoint. Anyone know what the good Doctor is up to?
This bump was meant to be sarcasm. If he has even a tiny little regret about being the ostensible 6th man on the national champ rather than ... possibly lower than the 6th man for us ... c'mon. This is awesome for Brimah and I figured this would be a way to note it.
And, Steve, this isn't an "other discussion" because we spent part of last recruiting season googling and checking this kid's twitter account daily. There's a connection to La Salle basketball with Brimah, very unlike McDermott.
Just checked the box score following UConn's loss to Texas yesterday. Mr. Brimah played 30 minutes - 1 for 7 from the field for 4 points and 2 rebounds.
Texas has one of the biggest front courts in the nation, I'd still take this dude in a heartbeat.
Not to mention Jerrell with what? 7 turnovers vs. UVA. Everyone has their down games. Brimah did play against one of the best front courts... he's still a presence inside and very talented. Let's take it easy with looking at just one game that happened to be vs. the #7 team in the country.
Brimah is getting looks from the Pros. They just had a story on him and why the Pros love him. Kid helped UCONN win a national title as a freshman. Not the main guy but played his part and played it well. He is a game changer defensively, not sure how anyone questions why he was a big miss for us.
I would love to have him protecting the rim for us and maybe save us 8-10 points given up a night.
