Omega is plenty fast.  He just needs to be under control when he's quick.  "Be quick!  Don't hurry!"

I agree with the big holes and yes we do need more than just a shooter. I assume you are refering to more of a sense of urgency on a few issues more so than personel. CTF teams are very inconsitant with rebounding, fast breaks, and foul shooting. I also hate to say it, but our defense dipped last season and I was not happy about that at all.

Omega, Morris, & Caldwell should combine for some great perimeter defense. I am worried about defense in the paint. I also think we have a small enough team to capitolize on fast breaks. It's a matter of will CTF coach it. Foul shooting & rebounding should be the largest of holes. What our staff does about it is what we will have to wait on.

We have size in Willms, Vint, Winn, Thomas, Romine, McSwiggan, & Flags. We also have the speed in Omega, Morris, Moore, Caldwell, & (Stallworth??). Our shooting will come from Morris, Moore, Omega, Touchet, McSwiggan, Flags, & (one more would be great). Where we are short is speed & we don't have a strong big man in the paint (a la Ced, Caracter, Okafor, etc). If we can't get big, then we need to be quick. We have all witnessed how speed and quickness can neutralize talent. We saw that with UAB v Iowa St 1st hand.
Anyway, I will be paying close attention to who the Miners will be picking up next.

I saw the Maurice sign this morning. In previous posts I stated I thought he might need to red shirt and nothing has changed. He will not be productive for K State for a few years. It looks like UTEP will be playing small a lot next year. No other big men look to be coming our way unless Clifford has a change of heart.
Playing small is actually OK with me as long as we can rebound. We just need one more shooter and I think we will be more than OK next year.

We struggled to rebound when we played big this past season. In my opinion we need a heck of a lot more than just one more shooter. This past season's team had some holes. The way things look for 15-16 there are some gaping ones....

This has probably been the greatest year in El Paso area High School sports history.  We had a Football Team make the State Semi-Finals(had never been done before), a Basketball Team make the State Semi-Finals, 2 Soccer teams made the State Semi-Finals with one winning the State Championship and we still have one of our best sports(baseball) remaining to hopefully add to that total.

I thought it was also interesting when they mentioned that Canutillo, Andress, and San Elizario are all Eagles.  "It was a good year for Eagles."

El Paso is a football powerhouse, DV won it in 2008, Horizon was in the final four, UTEP needs a mens team--they have all the talent in the world in their own back yard.

Congrats to San Eli.


I agree 100%. A baseball team too, we're saturated with Div1 prospects in our high schools too.
