Better be careful about recruiting foreign players. Might get the program cut. 

I'm picking up on your snarkasm...the good news is, there are typically more than 20 fans at a men's basketball game.

The number 20 has pulled their sponsorship from Sesame Street and UND Athletics in protest of the program being cut.

No McCauley!!

I didn't realize that when I looked through it, I guess maybe that is why they brought in someone else.

So we can add a 6'1 guard from Latvia to the squad as well.

This also caught my eye:  

Atelbauers and Rebraca join a list of five other newcomers that have joined the Fighting Hawks' program during the offseason and will be eligible to compete in 2018-19.

By my count, they have 6 newcomers, plus these two.  What gives here? Misprint or is someone not coming?

They list 6 on the roster so I wonder if it’s a misprint.

Chaves seems like he has been working his magic.  Maybe it’s Jones himself, but he always seemed to be so Iowa focused.  Iowa has been the go to place for players.

I wish Jones would stay in Iowa next time.

With the background him and Horner had, Iowa was the logical place. They had a good tie to MSP with Coach G, but haven't filled that void yet and really need to. 

I highly doubt Chaves is getting his hands dirty in recruiting, especially considering they have been on a large number of these guys for months or longer.

Chaves without question has his hands in hiring assistant coaches.  They can bring along recruits.

Head coaches get a lot of latitude when hiring assistants. The AD signs off on it and might ask a few questions and offer some guidance but the majority of it falls on the head coach.

Looks like they updated it so it correctly says 6.
