Speaking of transfers,

Is it true that Scottie Pippen wanted to transfer to UA, but Nolan advised him to stay at UCA?

I’ve heard that but never from an insider.

Yes, Scottie wanted to transfer once Nolan was hired. But, we did not have a scholarship to offer him.

I heard this directly from CMA.


one of my jobs as a basketball manager was to answer the phone during lunch for Terry Mercer, who is still the basketball department secretary.

I would say that I took around 10 messages from Scottie after his UCA sophomore season for Coach Richardson and Coach Stoglin.

There was no advice. There was no room.

If only.
