Neptune - With MU hoops concluded I'll blog on various topics including MU and local high school sports.

Will be interested to see how MU recruit Jhamar Youngblood does for St. Pat's in tonight's TOC final. If St. Pat's wins I believe Youngblood will be the first MU recruit to play for a TOC champion. Others, Marques Alston and John Giraldo, played for teams which lost in the final.

MU men's hoops has one scholarship left. As they are pretty well set for 2006-2007 I think they will hold onto it for a while... maybe see if a transfer becomes available.

Some speculation on whether Calloway will leave MU for another job. I don't see it. Not that he couldn't do it but it would have to be, in my opinion, a significant step up from the NEC for him to even consider it. and have a beach handy.

With the new MU arena in the wings..MU may be upgrading itself within a few years. For what it's worth, here via sportsline.com, is the list of current job openings, their former coach, years, and his record:

Word is that former MU assistant Ken Dempsey (UMKC), out of Monsignor Donovan High School, may, stressing - may - be in the mix for an assistant's post under incoming RU boss Fred Hill.

Dave Calloway is a very good coach and I seriously hope he never leaves Monmouth! I'm real excited about the arrival of Rickie Crews - he is going to be a star in the NEC. Thanks for putting up this blog - it is good to see Monmouth get the coverage they deserve.

I doubt Dave will leave unless he gets an offer that truly blows him away. Crews, I am told, is still raw, but with worlds of talent, a natural shot blocker. On an earlier blog he was labeled "a steal" for MU by recruiting guru Steve Keller. It's possible MU may red-shirt him next year. A lot depends on whether Tyson Johnson blossoms into a dependable player.
