Oh, what a season it was.

The Lamar State Seahawks completed one of the most magical and improbable runs in JUCO history this season after a 1-2 finish in the JUCO National Tournament in Hutchinson, Kansas last week. The Seahawks lost their first game to Monroe College out of the Bronx, 70-52, wound up beating then-#1 ranked Missouri State 69-62 in the next game before narrow 66-63 loss to Cape Fear Community College out of North Carolina.

In the week since the Steve Roccaforte Era ended, the names that have been bandied about by local media and fans as the next Lamar basketball coach really make you wonder if everybody just wants more of the same.

Some of the names that have been mentioned are Pat Knight, who went 1-1 against Lamar at Tech and Alvin Brooks, the former Lamar player who did zero as the head coach at the University of Houston.

If the powers that be at Lamar hire one of these also-rans, expect an extension of the era of staleness.
