Princeton at Yale. Oni 35/12/3

They played 3x. Copeland was terrific at the end of the year. Best ball of his career. And against Memphis in OT when they rest of the team had fouled out.

who was at the top of the LSU scouting report? who did the “best athlete in the SEC” guard, at least according to the Coach. The same guy who created and bricked 14 shots. But I give him credit they were open against said athlete.

The answer is the guy the GMs brought to the combine.

Jeff Goodman is reporting that Oni told Coach Jones that he will stay in the draft.

If he stays in the draft, enough teams have probably communicated to his agent that he will be drafted. I think that he should give it a whirl.

For the IL, it would be a good sign that an IL player is drafted albeit probably late 2nd round. The IL still does not have top tier talent although they are heading in the right direction --I think.

I do believe that some of us think that the league is further along than probably the reality. The NBA draft is one barometer to measure the "real" talent level currently in the league.

Getting drafted from the Ivy League is unprecedented in modern times. No guarantee for him in terms of career as a mid to late 2nd round pick. And bad for Yale next yr. but that would be a SEMINAL moment for the IL.

38.5 max vertical. 6’6 in shoes, 6’11 wingspan. Crappy runs but he’s fast so who cares

thats winning. So far

Oni can still change his mind until May 29. Some new reports this evening say that he is still leaving that option open.

2/3 from nba 3 point range in scrimmage. 9 pts 2 rebs 1 block. Only 16 mins
One more good game. With the 38.5 max vert
He gone. Will max out draft potential right now at 21/22.

I hope he does well and he has potential. But as the games against Princeton and LSU showed, if an athletic defender (e.g. Stephens) is dedicated to him, he struggles to score with his current skill set.

Yes, for each of us the results against our team may color our view. Against Penn last year, in 2 games, Oni was 8-24, while Copeland was 14-24.

Like the time he put 35 on Stephens at Yale

Selective analysis. True for every player particularly in college. He actually didn’t play that great mid feb on.

But he shredded penn and Princeton at home. Shredded them

LSU showed nothing other than he can go cold. Created shot well and played well other than the bricks he laid. But they were open. And he looked the party

Always been streaky.

Not this year---he had a very nice game in the theft game of the prior year, though.

Yale at penn.

21/8/5/2 blocks

And one dunk on the head of the big freshman. So he avged 28 that weekend. Then kind of tailed off. Actually didn’t play that well after that weekend at least not consistently.

Only better dunk he had all year was when he broke Cambridge’s will at brown. For good. At least in the ivy.

He was OK--7 for 16 is not great shooting. But he was 1-8 at Penn and kind of gave up early.

He's a good player. I think he'll be a G-League guy.

If 21/8/5/2 is “ok” the Ivy League must be a church league to you.

In which case he will be in the 3rd league in Belgium where I played.

Tonight would be the deadline for Oni to remove his name from the NBA Draft, if he is to return to Yale for his senior season.

I think the only other way he could return is if he is not picked and informs his AD by 5 pm the Monday after the draft.

On the 16th, Jeff Goodman tweeted that Oni told Jones that he would be staying in the draft. However, both told the YDN that Goodman was mistaken.

https://yaledailynews.com/blog/2019/05/16/mens- bas...

- “Yale’s Miye Oni told @Stadium that he informed coach James Jones that he will be staying in the NBA Draft,” wrote Goodman on Twitter.

But both Oni and Jones told the News that Goodman was mistaken. According to the two, the Bulldog wing has not yet made a final decision on his draft status. Oni told Jones earlier that his intention is to stay in the draft while currently retaining his eligibility. The two also saw each other at the combine Thursday afternoon according to Jones. -

As of this morning, Goodman and NBC Sports still have Oni listed as staying in the draft.

BTW, the day that Jeff Goodman tweeted that Oni told Jones he would be staying in the draft, Goodman later sent word that Oni parted ways with agent Harrison Gaines. He has hired Jason Glushon of Glushon Sports Management as his new agent.
