  1. What about Temi Adebayo PhillyU?

  2. T,

    I really like Temi Adebayo and believe that he is one of the better non-D1 prospects as I'm sure you have noted from my prior posts. The problem is that this was a very strong senior class, particularly with regard to the midmajor senior players. While I do feel that the representation at this camp is clearly biased in favor of D1 talent, I did feel the need to limit the number of non-D1 players to at least approach invites in a manner consistent with historical decision making. (if anything, I was liberal in my admittance of five players outside of D1)

    As for how Temi did not rank amongst the top 5 seniors outside of D1, he is still very raw despite being a senior. While he is statistically there with someone like Travis Hyman, for example, his impact on the glass was no where near where it should have been given his height and level of competition. I will write more extensively on Temi in a future article, as I feel that he deserves more exposure.

  3. Aaron Broussard - Seattle U. 39th in the country in scoring (18.2 ppg) in just 29 minutes per game. 29 pts, 8 rebounds against Virginia this year, more points than anyone else scored on them all season. 3 games of 30+ points, avg'd 6.5 rebounds per game.
