Oh well URI, you had'em and let him leave, now he's showing everyone what he can do and could have done for URI if he'd gotten a chance and been coached properly.
The last coaching staff (Baron and Pat Clarke), to their credit, at least realized Blake had potential and signed him, your current coaching staff however missed it completely. When Blake was there and even now, based on events then and now, I am unimpressed with the current regime and to be honest, its a blessing that Blake decided to leave URI... His experience their was great, accept for the basketball area. He will always be a URI follower and root for the RAMs but he made the right decision to leave. He's better for it and now he has a coaching staff at IUP that believe's in him and see him as he's always has been; a great player that just needed some attention (coaching) and a chance to play.
Good luck URI we wish you well but for Blake in terms of basketball, your in his review mirror now as an important learning experience that didn't work out because the decision makers couldn't see the future or get passed their own basketball paradigms! Blake will have a post season this year, will URI???
