    Xavier Thames

    I was just looking up some MBB recruits for the class of '09, and found a website for Xavier Thames, a 3 star PG out of California.

    XavierThames.net

    Does anybody know anything about him? Is he one of our top targets, do we have a chance at him, etc.?

    We have a legit chance at him, but more likely he will go to Washington State.

    Re: Xavier Thames

    Coach Otz was here in Feb. to check him out in person. His team had a "mutiny" where most of the team refused to play a game unless....I do not know exactly what the "unless" was but the coach ended up resigning. This was a coach who had won a section title at another school. The parents and players had said that the coach wasn't getting all he could out of the team. I do not think they improved any once the coach left.

    I think you are mistaken. Coach Norman Dale was not left go after the referendum on his job failed. Jimmy Chitwood's last minute support was cited as having a significant influence on the decision to keep Coach Dale.

    I wish I had my own website for my basketball stats. And I bet he isn't cauchy at all. ( sarcasm)

    I'll bet his dad helps with the pictures and clip art.

    Doesn't Xavier (and his dad) sound like bad chemistry for a team? I think this would raise a lot of flags...

    Re: Xavier Thames

    A little off of this topic, but I was looking at his site and the game pictures. I am always amazed at how few people attend these HS BB games. I went to a local Class A small school game this winter and they had 10x the people that attend some of the games of these recruits.

    Agreed. I'd stay away from that pair.

    Re: Xavier Thames

    Here's an article on Xavier, but I don't know what schools he's referring too, since I don't have premium scout.
