RE: Keno lands another 


If the tape on Youtube I've found is him, here's my quick take:

Pros -
Seems to have pretty good vision and is a pretty good passer
Looks like he has pretty good touch on mid range jumpers
He's got some length which is sorely needed

Cons -
Still looks a little raw and may be a bit of a project
Needs to add some size/strength
Looks like he plays a little soft


He kind of reminds me of Marco Spica except he weighs about 50 pounds less than Marco did.

I'd like to see us get someone with a big body who can bang down low at the PF spot. Also while I'm not an advocate of building a program around JUCO players, I would have liked to see Keno bring in someone who could contribute right away and help fill the gap between our current frontcourt and some of these younger guys that we have recruited who probably won't be ready right away. This team could really use a another Coimbra.

A nice JUCO big sure could help. A guy who could help Simons and Milos out would be good. I felt the all eyes article was good...SHALOM

Well it sounds like he knows what his weaknesses are, which is a good thing. Now let's just see if he can reach his potential.

Re: Keno lands another 


I'm trying to find information on Impact Academy in Sarasota, FL.  I'm confused about what this place really is. 

It doesn't seem to be a true junior college but more of a post graduate basketball training facility that also offers academic courses.  It's a one year program for those who have finshed high school but need an extra year before going on to college.  In this case a lot of emphasis is put on developing basketball skills during that extra year - it's a place players go to hone their basketball skills before trying for a college scholarship.  Courses that are taken can be transferred to a college when the player/student moves on. 

How in the world did we ever find out about this place?  I thought all college coaches hung out in the AAU leagues during the summer and used that as their primary tool for recruiting players.  In fact, Jason Whitlock (Kansas City Star and now Fox Sports) recently wrote an article in which he said AAU basketball has almost made the high basketball experience or season irrelevant in the recruiting process.  Coaches are busy with their own teams during the basketball season and have been using AAU ball more and more during the summer to evaluate and recruit players.  But I guess you can't leave any stone unturned when you are at the mid major level of college basketball.

Actually, this looks like it might be a great way for foreign players who have finished their version of what we call high school to break into college basketball in the US.  They can come over here, spend a year in a place like this, work on their basketball skills, develop contacts with colleges and universities, take a few classes and then move on up.  Let's hope this works out well for CMU and for Milos.

Fowler was injured as a rising senior. Steve Bell had him as the number one point in the state as a rising senior. Kid got hurt then went to IMG. There is a plethora of b.ball prep schools now; sometimes kids are harmed by these "schools". IMG has a solid rep.   SHALOM

Re: Keno lands another 


One issue for me is eligibality.  Another is the way in which the NCAA views these basketball prep schools.  Does a player use up a year of eligibality when they attend one of these schools?  When Milos comes in will he have four, three or two years of eligibality?

"Thus far," these schools are "treated as" a year of HS!

Fowler went to IMG in Bradenton, FL. They have a rep as essentially a sports "factory". It's not that they have nothing else, but beginning with tennis they've developed an intense training program. Not terribly far away is Impact Academy in Sarasota. Does not seem like there's a connect. According to "Euro" basketball's website, Milos was 6-9" in 2010, having been born in 1993. The videos I saw showed him as a lanky player, fair athleticism and with skills. The video quality was far from good. International b.ball has the wide lane, so post up play is basically replaced by skill play. I think the combination of him and Luke Meyer will be a good one. Both guys have skills, but  will have to develop; but you can't teach 6-9"/6-10".   SHALOM
