I think one of our big men leave in April & we get Bigby-Williams to strengthen & give some experience and depth to our frontcourt

Last night Gilette College won again, rallying from a 20-point 2nd half deficit and Kavell Bigby-Williams was 6-6 from the floor, 18 pts, 11 rebounds, 5 blocks

Gilette remains undefeated at 16-0

BU recruit Kavell Bigby-Williams still leads the NATION in two different categories...

He is comfortably ahead as national rebounding leader at 13.6 rpg
http://njcaa.org/sports/mbkb/2015-16...ew=&pos=bc&r=0

and he also has a wide lead nationally with 6.8 blocks per game
http://njcaa.org/sports/mbkb/2015-16...ew=&pos=bc&r=0

his other stats include 15.6 ppg, 54.3% FG shooting, while averaging only 2.5 fouls per game and 1.7 TO/gm

Kavell - come on down - Braves fans would love to watch you play!!!

Default Chance?

Tornado, I hope as well that we land him. He seems like an athletic difference maker.

Do you think we have a chance?

Do we know if he and DLO are close enough that he will be swayed to come join him here?

That is not known. They know each other and have played together with the national teams.
Hopefully, the prospect of immediate playing time will help Bradley's case. Juco players don't want to be backups with only 2 years to play.

Memo to Kavell --
go check the conversation that Auburn fans are having...on msg boards and per twitter..

you are not only considered as a backup plan for their remaining big-man-scholarship - but they also see you as a career sub & bench guy to play in case their other studs get hurt....plus they already have a 4-star stud (McLemore - LINK) signed for your very (PF) spot...
Just sayin' ....Choose carefully...you be a yuuuuuge part of what Bradley accomplishes the next couple years!!!

If schools of that size is interested, it will be a hard recruit for schools like Bradley. Maybe he wants immediate playing time?

actually - with the Texas assistant watching, Kavell actually had the worst game of his career...
he battled constant foul trouble and did not play much, ending with just four points... Maybe the Texas assistant will just pass on him & leave him for the mid-majors...
