Here's a writeup from Thursday's men's basketball media day, but one note that didn't make the paper:
Isiah Thomas' Hall of Fame credentials and dogged salesmanship has made FIU a viable option for talented recruits from across the nation, like transfers Eric Frederick and DeJuan Wright and freshman Richaud Pack.
Yet Thomas hasn't had the same success convincing the Sunshine State's best to consider the school.
"For so long, they looked at FIU as a place not to come to, in terms of the basketball program," Thomas said. "We'd like to have some success here locally to also go along with what we're doing nationally."
