Great to see Damian reap the rewards of being a hard worker and a good person.
I agree with Coach Rahe, recruiting will certainly be affected by having someone
like Damian come from your program and give a lot of credit for his success to
his time at WSU, which is not a "podunk" school. Around 27,000 students,
well-known academic and athletic programs. There are a lot of colleges in Texas
I've never heard of, doesn't mean they are podunk.
@Lightening LadYou must not understand college basketball. Weber
State is well known and respected. They were listed as 51st in the 100 greatest
basketball programs of all time. They are always ranked in the top 25 of
mid-majors. They have pulled off huge tournament wins against Michigan State
and North Carolina with close second round games against Georgetown and
Florida.Truth is, Weber State was on the map before Lillard--he just
reinforced it. I guess you got to get out more, or you need to get inside as
you have been out too long in the heat of Texas.
When I went to Weber State I never saw any of the top athletes in class but they
sure graduated. Must have changed the program. Back To Lillard I picked him as
NBA ROY when he was still playing for Weber..
Congratulations to the Weber State Wildcats!NIce teams, nice venues
and great town and University.The mountains are wonderful.Great outdoor events all summer and winter long. There is Spring and Autum
Coach Rahe said Lillard's success has not only helped put the WSU program
on the map What map? Non-Local sportscasters still call the place
WEB-BER State, like the BBQ. Great career and a super year in the NBA, but Weber
is still a Podunk school.
