Find a wing scorer (will be tough to get) and Moser is in business for next year.

There will be growing pains trying to mesh so many new faces but that's the college basketball world we live in at this point.

As for getting tweets to show up, just need to do the following:

[tweet]link from twitter[ / TWEET ]

remove the spaces in the last bracket (had to include the spaces to show the formatting, otherwise it will try to embed whatever is in between the brackets).

Great pickup. Even if nothing else added looking like best team upside since FF.

I'm inclined to be very excited about this news, but I can't give free rein to my enthusiasm until we hear from this board's juco guru, Bigabd. When he offers his endorsement, I'm all in.

I'm pretty excited about him, but man, we haven't had much look with foreign guys like this. Most of them didn't have a year in JUCO or college like Mawein had last year, so I'm hopeful. His role can be pretty limited next year, then hopefully he'll be ready for more PT the following season.

He’s projecting as a different kind of juco than we’ve had in the past.

I'm guessing the timing of this announcement isn't coincidental.

My thoughts exactly. I donít expect him to help much next year, but probably in the next 2 years.

They also didnít have the skills Mawein demonstrates on his videos. Heís definitely not the project we grew accustomed to in some of our foreign recruits. Iím excited about this pick up!

Iíd say it is, BT & Mawein had nothing to do with each other on what the other does.

Matt Freeman was considered a top 50 recruit.

This kid is very fluid with the ball, handles it like a big guard, he shoots and passes well, he’s not the typical shot blocker who lacks offensive skill like his name suggest ...

All that being said I’m excited for this pickup. I think he’ll contribute his last 2 years & hopefully be good enough to start his last year.
