    Worries me that our head coach is in New Hamster, but Wolfeboro is a nice place if he can get in and out of there quickly

Jake Weingarten reports Illinois and UNC are there today with Scheyer in town tomorrow. The Lithuanian-born player is stateside and receiving a ton of interest. He's very skinny, at around 175 lbs. He looks like he has the body of Shaun Livingston, although the jumper looks a lot more reliable. Buzelis is getting a lot of high-major offers already. Will Duke be able to keep it rolling?

    As you say, there is a lot of interest. Just saw that Cal was up to see him, too, and he's got offers from Florida State, Wake Forest, Kansas, UCLA, Arizona, Illinois and Syracuse.

    Brewster Academy is beautiful. And it's a 2 min walk from Wolfeboro.

    Count me in the camp who loves New England but isn't a fan of NH. Gimme VT or ME any day of the week.

    Comes down to food and beer. Portland ME arguably has the best food in New England. The whole state of Vermont has great food.

    And beer? (VT + ME) < remainder of the US

    Just my two cents...and I know I'll get plenty of feedback for that beer comment

    I assume you meant VT+ME>The other 48, which I can't say I agree on, but I am going to New England in 2 weeks to research.

    I think if your equation was VT+ME+MA>the pick of any three other states, then I'd say you have a reasonable argument.

    Oregon, Colorado, and California would like a word.

    Yeah, I'm spoiled.

    And your three would win my vote. New England's big three would be competitive though.

    Good news on Mgbako from behind enemy lines at mgoblog:

    The final offer went out to 5-star wing Mackenzie Mgbako of Gill St. Bernard (NJ). An elite shooter at around 6'8, he's widely considered a Duke lock. Don't get you hopes up here.

    New Targets in New England

    247Sports' Dushawn London is reporting that the coaching staff will be in New Hampshire today to take in a pair of top targets, G/F Matas Buzelis and 5* SF Taylor Bol Bowen.

    Bowen is a new name on the Duke radar. He's a 6'7-8" forward from Vermont, playing for Brewster Academy. He's long and athletic and with a good-looking outside touch. Kind of an ideal big wing a la Ingram/Tatum (in body type if not quite overall talent and skill level).

    Ha, yes I see sources that say he's from Jericho VT which is next door to where I live, but no one up here has ever heard of him...nonetheless, he sounds like a good prospect at a good hoop school...

    States with nine month long winters stuck inside have the inside track on beer production.

    I think he's a higher-ranked and better overall prospect than either of MJ's kids. He has a shot at making a professional career of basketball if he wants it.

    Depends on your definition of "far." It would appear the son is a great basketball player, one of the top 50 or so in his age group among the millions who play basketball in high school. He is far better at basketball than anyone on this board has ever been in our wildest dreams. But, he is not one of the all-time greats at the game like his father is. He is closer to his father's level of greatness than 99.9% of the folks who dribble a ball... but that last tenth of a percent is a heck of a long way to travel.

    It is sorta like Charles Edison, a wonderfully accomplished man who was an accomplished businessman, Secretary of the Navy, and Governor of New Jersey... but didn't have nearly the impact on the world that his father, Thomas Edison, did.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Now hold on there, I'm pretty darned impressive in my wildest dreams.




    Oh, wait. My wildest dreams aren't about basketball.


    Never mind.
