2/15 College Throwball Top 25

A reminder that this will be final week the college throwball regular season. Of course, usually the regular season would run through the first weekend of March (would be March 6-7 this season). The reason why the regular season is ending so early is so that conference commissioners can make decisions for their respective conference tournaments, originally all set for the week of March 8-14 and then the next few weeks the 2021 NCAA T-Division Men’s College Throwball Tournament. So, this will be the final top 25 until March.

Michigan State PG Manny Tate tells media transfer rumors are fake, and that he tore ACL in practice

Michigan State senior point guard Manny Tate took to his social media to explain a few things Monday night. Tate said that his transfer rumors are fake. It was reported by TN Michigan that Tate considered transferring to hometown Jacksonville University because fellow point guard (junior Victor Clemens) beat him out for the starting job. Tate did though confirm he had been away from the team for a week to deal with some personal issues and when he did return to practice in East Lansing yesterday, he tore his ACL. Tate said “I would like to confirm that I tore my ACL in practice today. I am expected to make a full recovery and thank you ahead of time for the support I will get through this tough time. I will take a medical redshirt this year and return to play at Michigan State in 2021.”

Like his brother before him, top prospect in the 2022 TN 50 RJ Moore has committed to Florida.

East, West Valley Conferences expect decision on season by fall meetings

East and West Valley Commissioner George Hall told the media late tonight that both the East and West Valley will have a decision on the upcoming season by the 2020 TN Fall Meetings, set for October 3-10. One potential schedule will include playing each of the fellow conference members, which would begin on Saturday January 23 or Saturday January 30. The other would have to have one (and only one school) from each conference forgo the winter sports season, putting each conference down to ten teams. They would match each team up with two teams from their respective conferences which would be showcase games where East and West Valley teams could not qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
