It seems like the rankings and stars are done during the summer AAU season when guys are playing with and against other D1 recruits. It seems a lot harder to evaluate players during their high school seasons when they're playing against such a wide variety of talent levels.

ESPN3 might be a mixed blessing also. I work with some college basketball fans who aren't affiliated either with Albany or Siena but watch games of both programs. They don't really go out to games but watch them online. 

 

Honestly, I can see the appeal. On Wednesday night I was watching a couple of conference games and the Siena game at the same time.

Ordinarily, I'd have a rant about how spoiled we are to be complaining about how unsatisfying NCAA tournament appearances and 20-win seasons are but I suspect you guys are just trying to irritate any Bing fans who might be reading our board.

 

BTW, a bunch of us were at our most recent NCAA tournament game against Oklahoma. Buddy Hield played right to the end and it was a six point game with a minute left.

 U may think I'm crazy but if I'm Brown I may bring in 2 5th year Srs unless I can get a can't miss JUCO player. Season not over , just food for thought.
 
 
I don't think you're crazy but I'm not sure we need multiple 5th year guys.
 
Our two best regular seasons - 2015(1st) and 2016 (2nd) we had dynamic scoring guards coming off the bench and both were freshman. 2015 was Wheeler Baker and 2016 was Joe Cremo.
My thought behind the 2 proven 5th year guys is this ... we have Cremo and Nicols's. Name the other 3 starters that you feel very comfortable with?

X-No
Campbell-No
Clark- if still on team . No
Conway-No
5 freshman -No

A proven JUCO? Maybe.
I'm not a college coach but if I were Brown u have 2 very good senior guards. There will be very good 5th year guys around . U sell the crap out of those two .

 

I just don't think we can lose sight of that fact that the Nichols-Cremo-Campbell back court is going to have two seasons with 20+ wins. If we had some punch coming off the bench we'd be having a different conversation now.
