    I do agree on the possibility of two pg in the 2019 class. But I am on the fence as to whether Toussaint or Cooper or Pierre-Louis. Tough call IMO. But Toussaint has gotten bigger and is around 6'1" now and can really run a offense and score when needed. Tough kid and veru quick with the ball going left or right. He can shoot too! https://youtu.be/ESA-pw_Cu5s

    Menzies is actively recruiting both Joe Toussaint and Josh Pierre-Louis. He will take the first to commit. Like I said earlier there will be two point guards in 2019 if one of them commits. Both are really good. I feel Joe is more of a pure pg. As a sophmore his team defeated a much more talented Cole Anthony lead team for the NY CHSAA AA Championship. https://youtu.be/IqB3ttEWylQ

    It's not fair to say and factually your comment is inaccurate. The National Press referred to UNLV's situation as a self imposed death penalty. Menzies had one player on scholarship when he took over the UNLV program in Jaylen Poyser who play little the prior season.. Muss returned Tyson Crisswell, Marqueze Coleman, AJ West and DJ Fenner who started or played major minutes in the Wolfpack roatation and other players on the roster from the year before. Also, the timing of the Menzie hire was also a problem. No comparison in the condition of both programs. The same goes for New Mexico.

    There are many ways to rebuild a program. Muss has relied on heavily transfers. Lon Kruger had a mix of transfers like Trevon Willis. Kevin Kruger, Chase Stanback and Mike Moser along with freshmen recruits Oscar Bellfield, Anthony Marshall and Wink Adams. No question, high level transfers can help jump start a program. But it's still a crap shoot because even high level transfers like high school recruits don't all ways work out as anticipated and Jalen Kendricks who was a transfer 5 star recruit and Mc AA is a example under Rice. Also, some coaches feel a total rebuild from the ground up with freshman is the way to go like Mick Cronin at Cincy and I wonder if UNLV fans have the patience for that type of rebuild. Because, if you look at Cronin's 1st 4 years at Cincy, I am sure many would have called for Mick's head at UNLV: Cincinnati (2006–2010) 2006–07 Cincinnati 11–19 2–14 16th and last place 2007–08 Cincinnati 13–19 8–10 10th place 2008–09 Cincinnati 18–14 8–10 T–9th place 2009–10 Cincinnati 19–16 7–11 T–11th place However, the patience of the Cincy AD paid off BIG because after his 1st 4 years Cronin's Bearcats have gone to the ncaa tourney 8 years in a row! IMO, this year is important for Menzies, but it should not be based just on wins and loses or artificial goals. Except for Shakur Juiston UNLV will still have a core of young but talented players in Beck, Hardy, Hamilton, Woodbury, Ntwambe, Bangai and Diong. The next class will add Anderson, maybe another pg and maybe a talented wing like Josh Green, Cassius Stanley or Christian Brown. If there is progress, but not at the level some want would it be prudent to pull the plug or fire Menzies and start from scratch with a new coach and a new roster of players? Or to continue the rebuild and let the freshman and sophomores become juniors and seniors? That's the question.

    IMO with Bangai walking on UNLV is done recruiting Bigs for 2019. I do feel there will be another pg in the class possibly Josh Pierre-Louis. After that it's between Stanley, Brown and Green for another 2 guard/wing. Also Antovian Collum is still a possibility at the 4. It will probably be a 3-4 player class. Green would be at the top of my list: https://youtu.be/zEk81dYcnZU

    It appears Menzies isn't finished recruiting point guards for 2019. Josh Pierre-Louis just announced his final 3 of Georgia, Oklahoma State and UNLV. 6'3" quick and very athletic. Also, comes out of a national high school program in Boston: https://youtu.be/MuEageX1AXE

    I see your point and won't necessarily disagree with it. But I have a different view on this and feel many others feel the same way. Look at last years nucleus of Jordi Johnson, JoJo Mooring and Kris Clyburn. Good kids and they played hard and played major minutes out of necessity at the point, two guard and small forward in guard/wing centric college basketball. But under normal circumstances neither Menzies or any other UNLV coach would have seriously recruited any one of them. Not a letter, phone call or any interest. In essence, they were like the REPLACEMENTS! Low major 2 star ex-juco talent that belonged at schools like Chicago State, Wisconsin-Milwaukee or Detroit Mercy. Not UNLV! There was a very much higher talent level of 3-5 star talent playing the guard/wings under Rice with three players actually making NBA rosters in Bryce Dejean-Jones, Pat McCaw and 1st round draft pick Rashad Vaughn. Also, let's not forget the very talented 4 star Derrick Jones Jr., 5 star McDonald's AA Jaylen Kendricks, 3 star Jordan Cornish, Kendall Smith and transfers Jerome Seagars and Ike Nwamu. I know for some Menzies is not getting it done fast enough. But if you compare last year with the 3 years prior to Menzies you will see that UNLV with Jordi, JoJo and Clyburn finished right where the program was at the 3 years before Menzies was hired despite the lack of talent. Year Record MWC Rice 2013-14 20-13 10-8 2014-15 18-15 8-10 2015-16 18-15 8-10 Menzies 2017-18 20-13 8-10 So for me, I know what Menzies can accomplish with low D-1 talent at the guards and on the wings in the MWC. Before throwing in the towel I want to see what he can do with Bryce Hamilton at the 2 guard along with a Christian Brown, Josh Green or maybe Cassius Stanley on the wing and a point guard of the caliber of Ethan Anderson or Josh Pierre Louis. Also, I want to see the development in Amuari Hardy, Tervell Beck and Mbacke Diong.

    It is. But some what historical in that it comes from the old NFL films with Steve Sabo from the 70's and 80's. One of the more iconic....The Autumn Wind: https://youtu.be/VPLmxtiVOe0

    Here some video from the California CIF-SS playoff game against San Bernadino. Bangai can really shot the ball and also in pressure situations at the free throw line with the game on the line.
