The CIAA is now 8 coaches strong. Join now and you'll be joining a rising power conference that placed 5 teams in the NT last season, when many teams were transitioning. The positions are challenging, but there will be bonus cash to spend. These are opportunities to prove your mettle:
- 10 open scholarships for this school. Conant
returns with 2 seasons of eligibility left and Holder
returns for his final season after averaging nearly a triple double (points, rebounds & turnovers). If you're wondering: this is rock bottom
. A new coach will have plenty of cash and a great opportunity to build.
- has only 2 open schollies and recently reverted to its original triangle & press formula. With 4 Seniors and 6 Juniors, this team will be competitive even without the highest overall average.
Elizabeth City State
- only has 4 open scholarships as Galgano
will return for his 5th season at this triangle & zone team. The first step here is to rescind the scholarships of Broadwater
and accept a couple walk-ons for this upcoming season, but that should leverage the recruiting budget for the next 2 seasons while staying competitive.
- it isn't pretty. It's tough to tell, but there may be some hidden talent on this squad. Last season, Stansbury
improved the most, followed by Aden
seems to have developed well in the core categories for a C and Cooper
will return as very useful upperclassmen. However, it's tough to see how this team could be competitive playing a man-to-man style until all these players graduate.
