Although Kendrick is the most exciting player I ever saw at VCU (Bri being right there) I hope people don't forget about how good, night in and night out, as was Bernard Hopkins. He was one of those freak of nature athletes that was coupled with incredible skill and strength. He could handle the ball, finesse his defender or go right through him. He played JUCO at Hagerstown (Md) JC and was here only two years, but what an impact. Sonny recruited him to play in the rough and tumble Metro Conference but Bernard ended up playing in the CAA, where he was a man among boys.

He often rebounded the ball, dribbled the length of the court, juked his defender and went in for the high percentage shot. Or just as often would pull up for a short to medium range jumper. Just a helluva a lot of fun to watch, unless you were an opponent. I hope he is doing well.

Loved Bernard, but I would describe him as skilled, strong, and very efficient player. He was consistent, he was good. The one thing I would never associate with him is "Most Entertaining" when you put him next to some of the high excitement guys we have enjoyed. Just my opinion, but I concur on your description of his talents.

Ah yes - Chris "gotta-be-the-socks" Brower. Never saw a 3-point shot that he didn't like. Can you imagine the games if he & Andy Kennedy had played at the same time? It would've been fun to see the two of them go head-to-head!

I remember him shooting a three pointer on the run from below his knees!

We are talking Pollio? That might have been entertaining watching the English man fill out the coach's 1040EZ.
