With school starting up again in a few weeks, I figure it's time to start a thread for the 2019-20 season. Carrying over a few pieces of recent news:

1. As reported by Bucknellbisonfan21, the women will open at Virginia on Tuesday November 5th. UVA was a top 100 team last year, although not as good as the ACC elites.

2. First new recruit for the new staff was 6-0 SF Kaylee Reinbeau from West Virginia: http://boards.basketball-u.com/showtopic.php?tid/2...

3. Second new recruit was Nicole Davis, a 6-4 PF/C from the Richmond area: http://boards.basketball-u.com/showtopic.php?tid/2...

4. Julie Kulesza, a wing from Delaware and that state's POY as a soph, is a Roussell commit who appears to be sticking with Bucknell. Thread: http://boards.basketball-u.com/showtopic.php?tid/2...

One bit of new news: Bison will host St. Bona on Wednesday November 13th. This will be the fourth straight year the two teams have met.

Bison women will be playing in the Puerto Rico Classic in San Juan over Thanksgiving. They face Cincinnati on November 28th. Possibly Iowa. Looks like the tournament may have had trouble getting participants, as it is apparently only two games this year as opposed to three last year.

It looks like there will only be 11 players on the roster this year. That seems pretty thin to be able to deal with injuries. Glad to hear Kulesza has not bailed out. We'll see what happens with Davis, but I'm not fond of project centers. The last one, MK Moore, did not work out. On the other hand, Sune Swart was a bit of a project and ended up being very good.

Didn't want to start a separate thread for this, but Jewel Spear, Kahliel's sister, who is a rising senior and one of the better guards in the country, cut her list of colleges down to eight earlier in the summer. Not too shabby a list:

- Louisville
- Georgetown
- Kansas
- Michigan
- Texas Tech
- Wake Forest
- Alabama
- North Carolina State

Temple is the bigger name, but Drexel has been significantly better than Temple the last couple years. They handed the Bison one of their very few losses last year.

Five of the last seven league games at home which is nice. Hope they do another PL double header this year.

Cincinnati, Quinnipiac, and UVA will be tough games. Stony Brook is also decent. The rest of the schedule is fairly easy. Even with all the graduation, this will be a good team. Keep in mind their final RPI was 37 last year.

The women played like a legit 12 seed. I hope the program can continue to grow.
