    Through 17 games at Lewis, 15 starts. 31.9 mpg and 9.7 ppg. He might have averaged those points at Lehigh this year.

    I looked at his stats yesterday and came away with a different spin. Miles may have provided some additional depth but not necessarily production. Remember, he’s playing about 32 mpg at the Division 2 level.

    FG 3P FT Asts TO
    Simelton .403 .367 .605 63 38
    Leufroy .447 .415 .814
    Ross .430 .308 .630 104 40

    Based on production, how many minutes would he have gotten?

    Good gravy. We are bringing in guys in the 6-7-8 rotation and it is downright scary. Every time they touch the ball you have to hold your breath …

    I don’t know how many turnovers we are averaging per game – 18? 20? – but Simelton would be a huge improvement. Even if he never scored; just to have someone who can swing the ball without throwing it into the 3rd row ….

    Likely 27+ mpg.

    I agree his efficiency numbers are not great, but he would be playing heavy minutes without a doubt. He brings so much energy and disruption. He is streaky but you still have to respect his offense more than any of the other guys Lehigh currently has on the bench. And his assist numbers are very solid.

    While we’re pondering the “what-ifs”, I took a look in on how Shane is doing at Campbell. For the season, while starting 17 of 19 games played:

    7.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 56% fg, 70.6% ft on 27.4 mpg. Similar numbers in conference play. He’s getting to the ft line a lot – 79.8% FTR per KenPom.

    Nothing earth-shattering, but he’s a starter and a contributor on a similarly struggling team in a conference of similar (or slightly better) strength this year. I suspect he’d be getting significant minutes at LU this year. Another forward would have been nice.

    I wonder if somebody at or near the AD-level does any kind of “exit interview” when these guys decide to leave? I think it would be important to get their feedback and understand their motivation to transfer.

    Both returned close to home? And perhaps the rigors of what was expected in the classroom? Really hard to say, but depending on the personality, D1 scholarship sports at a place like Lehigh is a huge challenge, far away from home.

    For those still following, Miles’ new program (Lewis) made the D2 NCAA tourney and got a 4-seed in the MidWest regional. They will play 5 seed Saginaw Valley State on Saturday 3/12.

    Miles must have had a strong end of season. Scoring increased to 12.4 for the season. And, shot it well from three, 43.3 %. We would be really tough with him in the mix.

    To bring this full circle (had MS and SW in the thread), I looked up Cole Renninger at Lock Haven this season. 20 minutes per game, and 4.3 ppg in D2 action. LHU 12-15 record.

    I believe Lewis University won the league title and is now scheduled to play in a regional.
