    Finally over...

    Jalan West did not enroll for classes for the spring semester, so the 7th-year senior's college hoops career is over.

    Oh, in case you didn't know, he was at NSU.

    Good player, when healthy.

    Yep, I thought that may happen, saw that he received his PhD at the winter commencement.

    He was a great player. With no injuries, he would have had a shot in the league. Great shooter!

    Agreed. Heck of a player. He schooled Speedy. Got Smith into foul trouble trying to guard him. If not for our other guard....name escapes me...we would have lost that night in the Airplane Hangar. We won something like 98-88.

    West is another example of the inexact science of recruiting. He could have played for anyone....UNC, Duke, Kentucky...but ended up at NSU because Opie knew talent when he saw it.

    This is where I say, "I told you so."

    He had no business staying for a 7th year. It ended poorly for everyone involved. NWST's program is now a dumpster fire.

    Also, West ended up at NWST and not a better school because he wasn't academically qualified. He was not eligible to play his first season at NWST because he didn't get cleared by the NCAA.

    That's NSU's other guard.

    I was referring to a Tech guard, who started with Speedy. Having a brain fart, can't remember his name. Anyway, Speedy rode the bench in foul trouble and that guy scored 30 and played a HUGE game leading us to the win.

    Academics explains why he wasn't recruited by an elite school. Well, maybe they "recruited" him but couldn't sign him.

    I have spoken with Jalen West, shot hoops with him one day. He's a fine young man, and a great player when healthy. Damn knee injuries are tough on athletes. I know what two knee surgeries did to me.

    As for the state of NSU's MBB....no, I don't really care. Except I like Opie and don't want to see him going through tough times. For now his job is safe. But at some point, if he doesn't turn this around, I suppose Greg Burke will have to fire him.

    Brain fart has passed!

    Alex Hamilton.

    Hamilton stepped up BIG that night. Ran the point and scored 30.
