I don’t know about you but it has been pretty hard for me to get into basketball season this year. I’m not really sure what’s going on over in Laramie as far as the men’s basketball program is concerned but it isn’t good. In the last few weeks the Pokes have suffered the largest defeat at the AA in it’s history, had another player leave the program, and once again lost to CSU yesterday. Its current record is 9-14 overall, 2-7 in the Mountain West Conference with seven regular-season games to play, four of which on the road. (By the way, the Pokes are 0-7 on the road this year) Home games left include TCU, #12 BYU, and Air Force. Honestly, at this point I’m not sure if they will win another game this season. So what is the problem? Obviously, it comes down to Heath Schroyer and his coaching staff. The University announced Friday that sophomore guard A.J. Davis left the program. Davis is the sixth Schroyer recruit to leave the program and the 11th since Schroyer was hired. I don’t think it’s rocket science to figure out something is not right there.
It may seem like a long time ago but do you remember the days of Josh Davis and Marcus Bailey. After watching these videos you may even want Steve McClain back:
So, have you been following Pokes basketball this year? What do you think the problem is?
