    Eric F - Any connections?? Ya'll both drink Molson's perhaps???


    IMG Academy has played host to some of high school basketball’s biggest stars in recent years. From Trevon Duval to Jonathan Isaac and numerous others, the Ascenders have the reputation of sending players to elite college programs and, in some cases, the NBA.

    Could 7-foot-4 15-year-old Olivier Rioux be next in that line?


    The massive Canadian center announced on his Instagram in June that he is taking his talents to IMG Academy next season. Rioux previously either trained or played with Real Madrid in Spain and College St-Jean-Vianney in Montreal, Quebec.

    At 15 years old in Montreal they'd probably serve him beer without an ID, especially at 7'4

    I’m sure it will be FSU or Kentucky. IMG is off limits to UF

    His hands are in the wrong position to be shooting a free throw.

    But so were Joakim Noah's hands.

    <joke>How tall will he be after he is in college?</joke>

    I can't say much about any bigs in hoops today but there is a line of thunderstorms that looks like an eye wall that set to hit just past midnight. First patch that came through tonight was got me out of my chair to see if I was in Kansas.

    on height alone he will go to FSU. They always have 3 or more seven footers with varying skill levels but they always have tons of height.
