Spring game visitors

Recommended Posts

Also, two transfers from UNLV. Joel Ntambwe (6'9 Fr F) averaged 28 min 11.8 pts and 5.5 reb and shot 40% overalll and 38% from 3.

 

Other UNLV guy is a 6'8 Fr F/C who played about half as much as Ntambwe but shot 47% from the field overall.

 

So we are up to 4 guys visiting.

Ntambwe also recently visited UCONN and is given high praise from UNLV assistant coach saying he will be a pro in two years and would have eventually been Mountain West player of the year had he stayed with the Running Rebels.

Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua is 6'8" 230#. Real raw offensively but rebounding/blocks/rim defense is there.  Reportedly he's pretty bright and lives in the gym.

 

Can we fit his name on the back of a uniform though?  How about a phonic pronunciation of his name?

Do we know what the eligibility situation is for each of these guys? I assume the non-juco guys all sit one year but I can’t keep up with all the new waiver “rules.”

 

A waiver would mean immediately eligible. Who knows there. Otherwise:

 

• Top-five JC prospect Jervay Green - Immediate
• Former Oklahoma State forward Maurice Calloo - mid semester 2019-20
• UNLV transfer Joel Ntambwe - 2020-21
• UNLV transfer Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua - 2020-21

UNLV players would be eligible for a wavier. NCAA approved multiple waivers for players last season, who were leaving due to a coaching change. Its not a guarantee, but it is possible that Ntambwe and JTT could be eligible for 19-20.

Yeah, the NCAA has been extra lenient these days.  Would not surprise me one bit if Ntambwe and Tchtchoua got a waiver to play right away since there was a coaching change at UNLV.  Add Green and Mack and throw in a guy like Ntambwe and we become a very interesting team next year.  Still probably a big man short but man we will be fun to watch.

Not sure if this was posted already, but looks like he’s on record telling a reporter that he will not be going to Nebraska.

 

Old news. That was when he hadn't gotten a release yet and Mullin hadn't yet stepped down.  Things have changed.  You gotta keep up.
