Shaka Smart to Texas: Latest Contract Details, Comments and Reaction

By Timothy Rapp




The Texas Longhorns haven't waited long to find a replacement for Rick Barnes, as the program will sign Shaka Smart to take over as head coach.

ESPN's Jeff Borzello reported the news:

Hank Kurz Jr. of the Associated Press reported that Smart still hadn't left the Siegel Center over four hours after his team meeting. However, Jeff Rabjohns of Peegs.com reported that Smart wasted no time on the recruiting trail as he offered 2016 recruit Bruce Brown a scholarship.

Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman reported the details of the contract:

Under Smart, VCU reached the Final Four in 2011, has reached the NCAA tournament in five straight years and won one CAA conference tournament and one Atlantic 10 conference tournament. It's safe to say he's completely transformed the program since taking over in 2009.

Texas' basketball program could certainly use a transformation. The Longhorns haven't reached the Sweet 16 since the 2007-08 season, also the last time the program won a Big 12 title. Under Barnes, fired March 28, Texas had never won a Big 12 tournament, though it did reach a Final Four and the Elite Eight two other times. It also won three regular-season titles.

Texas certainly has the resources to become a power, and Smart proved he could both recruit and coach with limited resources, so the Longhorns will expect him to bring the program back to national prominence.

His pressing defensive style and tendency to encourage his teams to play fast will certainly make Texas basketball far more entertaining to watch.

And perhaps a bring it national title, too.

His father is Trini... but in true Trini style he wasn't a part of his life growing up.  Great opportunity for Smart, I like Rick Barnes, going back to his days at Providence, but I think his time had run its course at Texas.  Even so, he was able to recruit players like Tristan Thompson, Lamarcus Aldridge and Kevin Durant to play ball in Austin.  If Smart could recruit half as good as that, Texas will be tears.

T&T Ronald Roberts

Banco di Sardegna Sassari (Serie A) is targeting 24-year old Trinidad and Tobago forward Ronald Roberts (203-102kg-91, college: St.Joseph's) who currently plays for San Miguel Beermen in Philippines. In four PBA games he had very impressive stats: 23.0ppg, 16.8rpg, 1.3apg, 1.0spg and 2.3bpg this season. Roberts ended this season at Warriors in D-League. In two PBA games he recorded also remarkable stats: 29.5ppg, 13.5rpg, 2.5apg and 2.0bpg. But the most of that year he spent at Delaware 87ers in D-League. In 14 PBA games he recorded high stats: 15.8ppg, 11.6rpg, 1.4apg and 1.0bpg.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Roberts' college team won Atlantic 10 Tournament in 2014. He was also voted All-Atlantic 10 3rd Team in 2013 and 2014.
Roberts has played also professionally in NBA (Philadelphia 76ers).
He attended Saint Joseph's University until 2014 and it will be his first season as a professional player.
Roberts could be described: A power forward with great rebounding ability ahd hustling mentality. Needs to beef up a little and to play regularly at senior level, has yet great upside.

However, despite Zackery gallant performance the second ranked TV Saarlouis Royals (11-3) suffered a very important loss, 72-79, against ninth ranked BC Pharmaserv Marburg (5-9) on Saturday night.

With the loss, the visiting Royals ended at its seven-game winning streak. Meanwhile, Zackery had 11pts, 9rebs & 4assists as the Royals crushed Rhein MB 100-69 in a previous game on January 11th. Thus far, in twelve games Zackery is averaging11.7pts, 6.7rebs and 2assists per game. She also enjoys a shooting average of 60.4% from the free throw line and 42.5% from two-point range.

Zackery is regarded as one of the better overseas-based Trinidad and Tobago player who is yet to represent the national team at the regional FIBA tournaments.

BY:ALBERT-LEE YOUNG
   
6-4 point guard Daniel Dillon was the top T&T player on the international professional basketball circuit.

On January 5th, freshman point guard Khadeen Carrington (6-3) was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week. He also had a 11pts & assists performance in a previous game against St. John's.

Coming off the bench, Carrington averaged 14 points and two assists and was absolutely critical down the stretch in Seton Hall's win over Villanova. Carrington played hero in the Villanova victory. Down by two points with less than three minutes left, Carrington stole the ball from Nova's JayVaughn Pinkston and turned it into a fast break layup to tie the game. With the game again tied late, he put SHU back up with another layup. Then in overtime, he had his biggest moment, pulling a spin move in the lane and converting a layup off the glass to put the Pirates up one with 1:38 to play. He then calmly sank two free throws with under 30 seconds to go to put Seton Hall up three and up for good. He finished the game 9-for-10 from the free throw line and finished the week 16-for-18 there.

Meanwhile on January 13, Carrington was instrumental in Seaton Hall's late surge against Butler, scoring 14 of his season-high 20 points after halftime and adding two assists without a turnover in 36 minutes of action. However, the #12 ranked 'Hall' fell just short at the Prudential Center in overtime for its first home loss of the season, dropping a 79-75 to the visiting Butler Bulldogs in a wire-to-wire contest.

Jack hits 19pts!

Despite 19pts & 5rebs from 6-9 Kadeem Jack, Rutgers (10-9, 2-4) fell to Minnesota, 89-80, on Saturday afternoon at Williams Arena. Teammate Myles Mack was the sparkplug for Rutgers with a season-high 26 points and eight assists.

After halftime the Gophers started strong again, pushing their lead to double digits at 54-44. The Scarlet Knights cut into the deficit, but again Minnesota had a response, as consecutive threes pushed their advantage to 66-55.

RU responded with an 8-2 run as Jack converted a three-point play, making Minnesota's advantage 68-63. But the Gophers countered to extend that lead to 80-68.
A late push by the Scarlet Knights cut the deficit to 80-74 after a steal by Jack and finish by Bishop Daniels. Minnesota, however, would hold on for the victory.

Meanwhile, it was Jack tenth time in 17 games reaching double-figure scoring. His next game is Tuesday as RU host Michigan. The game will be televised live nationally on the Big Ten Network.

Hamilton top JUCO shot blocker!

Meanwhile, 6-11 centre Johnny Hamilton tallied 13rebs, 5blks & 12pts but Jacksonville Community College still went under 96-88 to San Jacinto College-Central on Tuesday 13th.
Currently, Hamilton has 51 blocks and enjoys an overall #1 ranking in NJCAA as well as in Region XIV conference where Jacksonville competes. He is averaging 4.6 blocks per game.

Hamilton, who is in his second season, previously played basketball for the Millennium Basketball Academy and St. Augustine High School in his native home land, Trinidad. During his domestic career Hamilton also led his club and former high school in block shots. He was also a member of the Ministry of Sport, Schoolaz Basketball team, which successfully completed in tournaments in Venezuela.

Watching Seton Hall vs. Villanova for the Big East Championship, and I see SHU player Desi Rodriguez with a tattoo of a shield with what looks like the map of Trinidad and Tobago on his left shoulder.  In looking him up I didn't see anything confirming Trini links, but interestingly enough it put me onto his teammate Khadeen Carrington.  Not only is Reynold Carrington his dad, but according to his official SHU bio, he was born in TnT in 1995.

She averaged over 9 points per game in her senior year in college basketball and shot 39% from 3-point range. Nowadays, she has a budding acting career but has a burning desire to play for the Red, White and Black. Her name is Keyla Snowden, a 5 foot 7 inch shooting guard who played for Akron and then Kentucky on the US collegiate circuit. She was on a recent visit home and spoke to Ian Wason about her goals.

Teenager Brewer picked for global basketball camp



The National Basketball Federation of Trinidad and Tobago (NBFTT)has publicly congratulated Remy Brewer on being selected to participate in the 3rd annual Basketball without Borders (BWB) Global Camp in the United States next year. The camp will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, between February 17th – 19th.
In a media statement issued yesterday, the NBFTT noted that at just 16 years, Remy can easily be considered one of the top youth prospects, not merely in Trinidad and Tobago but in the wider Caribbean region.
Remy hails from St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands; he moved to Trinidad and Tobago in 2014 and currently attends the International School of Port of Spain. Almost immediately, he caused a stir within local basketball circles as he dominated at the secondary school level. His superb talent granted him several opportunities to travel around the world and gain international exposure.

George Washington expected to hire Maurice Joseph as full-time head coach

George Washington has offered its head coaching position to interim head coach Maurice Joseph and he is expected to accept, multiple sources told FanRag Sports.

There is no timetable on an official announcement.

One source said that retaining Joseph was always the first option for Colonials’ athletic director Patrick Nero and George Washington refused to hire a search firm for the process.

The 31-year old Joseph led the Colonials to a 19-14 overall record and 10-8 mark in the Atlantic 10 this season after taking over for Mike Lonergan, who was fired before the season.

Joseph was an assistant coach at George Washington prior to being given the interim head coaching position.

A Division I college player at one point, Joseph’s connection to George Washington is actually through the Lonergan, who the former played for while at Vermont. In two seasons with the Catamounts, Joseph was the team’s second-leading scorer with 13.9 points per game, helping Vermont to its fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in 2010.

When his college playing career was over, he would play professionally overseas, and represent Trinidad and Tobago, playing on its national basketball team in 2010.
