I guess he is our updated version of Paul Brozavich or Louis Amundson?

Brozavich was decent. I hope this guy isn't David Willard 2.0.

It will be interesting to see how the roster looks in games.  I feel like the backcourt is more skilled while the frontcourt is more athletic.

I have them as the sixth best team in the MW right now.  But they should finish around 100 in KenPom.

I’m interested to see what the rotation will look like. No more 6-7-8 man rotations under Otz and playing guys for 30 plus minutes. 
 

We’ll probably be rolling 10-11 guys and be fresh in conference and conference tournament play. 
 

It’s been awhile since UNLV went into March on a roll and ready to feast.

I doubt we go 11 deep, but 9 players seeing double digit minutes is realistic.

I’m surprised he wound up there.  He’s a P5 quality player.

I have no idea why he & UNLV parted ways, but whatever it was maybe it was enough for P5 programs to shy away from him - I'm with you that he's got more talent than a middling WCC program like Pacific

He fell out of favor as the season went along.  My guess is that Kevin Kruger had the same thoughts as TJ Otzelberger.

I think it was some off the court issue - more than any on court performance , but who knows :shrug:

Blake’s statement was weird. This year’s mass movement of players nationwide makes it difficult to guess why Pacific. Good luck to Nick in his future. He’ll have 4 years to make his Mark.

So we get Hampshire and they get Blake? Seems like we got the $hit end of that stick

Pacific's starting SG/leading scorer Daniss Jenkins transferred just a few days before this news dropped. They had no problems making guarantees on PT for Blake since he's a straight-up upgrade---6'6 shooting guard with way more upside, length and athleticism. Pacific got a total steal with Blake if they develop him right. 

In exchange, UNLV got a 10 min/game situational big-man. Krugie must be happy with what we'll get at SG/the wing with Mike Nuga, Josh Baker, Webster, Donovan Williams and Bryce Hamilton. Still a big upgrade over what we had last year.

Weird landing spot for Blake. Maybe he did get offers from P5 programs but wasn’t going to see the floor. Who knows, best of luck to him.

It looks like the staff has punted on 2022 HS kids for the most part.  2023 HS will be huge.

Not really. Going after Pop Pop,Shane Thomas etc but yeah 2023 will be huge.

I think he’s better than Pacific, but from what I saw he wasn’t going to step right on to a P5 and compete. He definitely has an upside, but he has a lot of work to do.

If they get Pop Pop, hopefully his dad won’t be too much of a distraction like Katin Reinhardt’s dad was.
