Basketball - UMaine men:

The tape suggests Efretuei is not a total stiff. He was a part time starter for 2 seasons at ULM which is in the Sun Belt, a stronger conference than the AE. Went to South Plains JC before that.

Coach Barron can now put together some pretty interesting lineups in place. If he puts Ingo and Efretuei on the floor together it could be a poor man`s AE` version of Mourning & Mutumbo.

All the shooters are in Europe and Asia.

We have 3 Mainers on the roster and all of them can shoot. Getting those shots off and through the hoop with less time & space is the issue. Perovic is coming in billed as a shooter. At 6`7 180, he needs to work on his strength. Duhart is one of the better shooters this program has had in recent years and he has a very quick release.

 
This program needs D1 players. There are none in this year`s Maine high school class.  Cash McClure made a wise decision to attend prep school. I like his game but he is rail thin and most likely suited for D2 or D3. Cummins and Campbell left state to attend prep and reclassified.
The quickest route to improvement is to add experienced transfers and junior college players. They have numerous offers out there.

So is anyone else besides Efretuei and Ireland committing to Maine for next season?

I count 12 scholarship players.......11 if you exclude Larsson & Antoms.

MJ, 

There will have be more signngs! Only 6 Scholarship players on campus now that are returning. 

1-Ja`Shonte

2- Ata

3-Steph

4- LeChaun

5-FoFo

6-Leyton (Scholarship this year)

The rest are moving on or are walk-ons.

3 signed for next year to equal 9 total as of today--- so that leaves 4 more if my math is correct
