If roundball is your blood, this is the place to discuss the Flames as they move into the Ritchie McKay era for the 2nd time.

#561096 The two guards we had offered earlier, Talton Jones and Cameron Cohn, have been removed from our verbal commits profile. No big surprise, considering we do not have any scholarships available at present. The fact that the third scholarship went to a forward (Robinson) would seem to indicate that Richie likes what he has seen of both Price and McGhee.

#563376 Agreed. I like that ritchie is opposite of gill. Hes clear concise and doesnt just give bs answers when the teams struggles like last year during that january stretch.

It seems as though he methodically laid out a plan and has advanced it slightly every year. Did you all notice the gpas of these incoming kids? Wow. So hes improved the character academics and overall talent. Now hes starting to do that with athleticism with mcghee and this class.

Wish getter would have hung around. Thats my only concern now is does he and soucie have enough experience around them. I know getter was well liked by players and families. Hopefully some of the young coaches can grow fast.

Yeah, he is flat out ballin. Play Basketball If he can come close to maintaining those numbers, we may be looking at Kentucky´s ¨Mr. Basketball¨ in a Liberty uni next year.

#565878 Link to see Rode play tonight against the top rated team and prospect in the state.


His numbers over the first 4 games are even more impressive when you look at the shooting percentages and consider he really doesn´t have much help. He is scoring over half of his teams points.

#566573 What had been a cinderella season for Kyle Rode and his Lexington Christian teammates hit a major speed bump against number one ranked Scott County. Watched part of the game on line, and it quickly became clear that one of the reasons Kyle has been putting up such huge numbers is that LCA has zero talent other then him. Scott County double teamed him all night and held him under 20 while winning by about 40.

#567591 Coach McKay´s son Gabriel, who had announced several months ago he would be joining this recruiting class as a walkon, is instead signing with Trivecca Nazarene this afternoon, where he will play for Omar Mance and have a full scholarship. Smart choice. Playing for your dad is tough, and it often does not work out well. At Liberty, he likely would have only seen the floor at garbage time. He should get to play there, and will be in really good hands with Omar.
