The rich get richer

Postby upnorth » August 16th, 2019, 8:25 pm

Never too early for basketball talk.  Just heard some interesting news that Saint Joseph's best returning player, a 6'6" 11th grade wing with a deadly outside shot, transferred to Bishop Guilfoyle a few weeks ago.  Word on the street is that the family is not moving.  Coincidentally, this young man also plays on an Altoona-based AAU team with a few other BG players.  The D6 Committee recently ruled him ineligible for post-season play this upcoming season.

BG probably has a better library.

PIAA rule automatically makes him ineligible for playoffs D6 is also not allowing the kid to play at all this season from what I heard.

Poor kid will have to sit out a whole year and can’t transfer back because of the double transfer rule. Why would BG even allow this to happen?

Why would a catholic school turn down tuition money?

Last night I talked with someone familiar with the transfer who told me St. Joseph’s signed off on it, and he will be eligible to play in the regular season this year but not the playoffs. Next year he would be eligible to play in both.
